building to


tumble within


30 days
Keene Construction in Maitland, FL applied April 1
for a demolition permit for the now-closed Island Foods
grocery store, 3900 East Bay Drive, Holmes Beach.
Holmes Beach Public Works Supervisor Joe Duennes
signed the permit April 6. A spokesperson said the com-
pany plans to start the $45,000 demolition project within
30 days and the work will take about 30 days.
The company will also construct the new 27,000-
square-foot Publix grocery store in the same location.
The Publix is slated to open in the fall of this year;
however, the city has not yet received a site plan for the
construction.
The site plan must be reviewed by the public works
department and approved by the city commission prior
to construction.


County OKs

grant application

for former Cortez

schoolhouse
The old Cortez schoolhouse took its first step to-
ward reverting back to public use Tuesday when
county commissioners unanimously approved applying
for a state grant to buy the building and surrounding
property.
The school, at 4415 119th St. W., was built in,
1912. Cortezians have banded together in an attempt to
turn the school into a community center.
County commissioners are applying for a grant
from the Florida Community's Trust. The grant will be
written by representatives from the Sarasota Bay Na-
tional Estuary Program.
County Administrator Ernie Padgett said he had
spoken with the heirs of Robert Sailors, owners of the
property, and said the price for the schoolhouse and
surrounding 4 1/2 acres of property is $375.000.
Padgett said the county's match to meet the grant
would be between $40,000 and $50,000.
The issue will come back before the county com-
mission April 21 for final approval to submit the grant
to the state.

egory is the decision to have what could become a re-
ally bad detour take place after Easter.
Once the contractor's work crews get to the Gulf
Drive-Cortez Road'intersection, northbound motorists
may be directed to side streets, then to Highland Av-
enue to Cortez Road, across the bridge, assisted in a U-
turn to continue back across the bridge and then north
on Gulf Drive.
The alternate plan would be to have a police officer
direct traffic off Highland on Cortez Road either across
the bridge or across traffic back to Gulf Drive. At press
time, no final decision has been reached for which op-
tion will be selected.
That "really bad" detour should only last a few
days, Rosenstein said.

Bayfront street-end still in public ownership


By Paul Roat
Vera Nichols has lost her bid for a bayfront street-
end vacation between two properties she owns in
Bradenton Beach.
Nichols, who owns houses on either side of the
street vacation site at 118-120 Ninth St. N., requested
the vacation for security reasons.
"All I'm trying to do is have better control for se-
curity reasons and possibly modify my triplex so it can
make money or so I can modify my house," Nichols
said of the street-end request. The property in question
has 30 feet of bay frontage and is 79 feet deep.
"I've taken care of the street-end since 1981," she
added. "It's an alley that goes nowhere."
She said that she has awakened to see people drink-
ing beer in lawn chairs on tne site. "It's scary, and I
want some control over it, and the city can make money
on it by my paying taxes on the property. I don't see
any sense of you not turning it over to me."
City commissioners disagreed, though, and voted
unanimously to deny the property vacation.
"I am opposed to donating city property to private
citizens," Mayor Connie Drescher said.
"I have a great concern about something being
built there," Vice Mayor John Chappie said of the
site. "I believe there could be serious problems with
stormwater runoff [if construction took place on the
lot]," he continued.

commissioners


refuse to


vacate alley
Holmes Beach commissioners last week refused
the latest request to vacate a city alley. The city has no
procedures for vacating property.
Matthew L. Daniel asked for five feet of the alley
for himself and five feet for his neighbor. Another
neighbor recently complained to the city about a fence
Daniel erected there.
Commissioners told Daniel to remove the fence
from city property and put it on his property line.
They said he could use the alley and told him to
complain to the public works department when it
needs maintenance.


Road work continues in

Bradenton Beach
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
No work is done at night or on the weekends, he
added.
Pipes are in and only dressing the area is left at
Gulf Drive from Third to Seventh Street South and
from Fourth Street South to the bay.
Ongoing now is the area from Second to Sixth
Street North. Pipes will be on both the east and west
sides of Gulf Drive once the work is completed. There
will also be a stormwater retention pond at the south-
east corner of Gulf Drive and Cortez Road to hold
water during heavy rains, plus a pipe north of Cortez
Road to the bay near the Bridgeport Condominiums.
Additional drainage improvement are being made
at the S-curves in the 1900 block of Gulf Drive.
Another cause for the hold-ups in the project is
relocation of underground utilities, Rosenstein said.
Although telephone, water, sewer and some electric
service utilities are supposed to be clearly marked on
plans, sometimes the location of the wires or pipes is
not exactly where indicated.
Unforeseen conditions have not only delayed the
project, but have also gone into cost overruns. Exact
figures won't be available until the project is com-
pleted, but Rosenstein estimated the drainage work will
cause DOT to pump another $50,000 into effort.
'. For more information, call Rosenstein at.359.-5696..


Commissioner Dan Goodchild questioned the ar
visibility of donating city land to private interests. It
is bayfront property," he said, "and could be a ery
expensive addition to those two properties on eac side
of it. I'd like to see a price tag on the land in qlstion,
but I'm opposed to giving away public prorirty."
"People nearby bought property with tat access to
the water," Commissioner Gail Cole spd. "The street-
end is out there for people who bought property on the
block."
Residents in the area, mo- of whom live in the
Bayview Terrace condominium, were opposed to the
street vacation. John Woeos, president of the condo
association and represeping 45 homeowners there,
said "we have serious ncerns should this property be
transferred from th/city to private interests."
Woods said public utilities that are underground at
the site serve the condominium and would have to be
relocated. Stormwater runoff from Gulf Drive and the
adjacent streets flows across the street-end into Anna
Maria Sound and any construction on the property
would inhibit that flow, possibly causing flooding in
nearby homes.
He also said the street-end was used by motorists
as a turn-around point.
"The recent interest of other parties, who have been
observed photographing and measuring this property,
suggests strongly that there is an agenda which Ms.


Nichols has not been forthright in disclosing," Woods
said. "Unless she has such an agenda there is absolutely
zero to be gained by any party.
"She has exclusive use of the property," Woods
continued, "and if there are two or three people a month
that use that land it's a miracle. Forgive me if I smell
a rat, metaphorically speaking."
Bayview Terrace resident Paul Boerigter said, "It's
a very unusual request. To vacate one street-end to the
detriment of an entire neighborhood is very unusual."
"I don't know why the city wants that strip of prop-
erty that I've been taking care of all these years,"
Nichols rebutted. "Nothing is going to change except
the city is going to gain on taxes on the property. I just
want control over the people who park there."
In the end, Goodchild made the motion to deny the
street-end vacation. All commissioners voted in favor
of the denial.
This street-end vacation is not the first to come
before the city commission. Last year, commissioners
rejected a similar proposal at Anna Maria Sound and
11th Street North.
And several years ago, Bradenton Beach Marina
owner Allan Bazzy requested vacation of part of Bay
Drive North and Church Street as part of the marina
renovation efforts. The city rejected that proposal as
well, but the request was rejected by the courts and the
city later complied with the vacation application.

Towers no, parking maybe in wake

of special Anna Maria workshop


By Andrew White
Islander Reporter
The Anna Maria City Commission held a special
workshop last week to provide extra discussion on
three items currently up for vote.
The topics were a cell tower ordinance, parking on
the right-of-way and the possible disposition of city
property at Lake LaVista bridge inlet.
The cell tower discussion covered possible regula-
tions that the city would like to incorporate into the
forthcoming cellular phone telecommunications tower
ordinance. A temporary moratorium prohibiting the
construction of cellular phone towers until Oct. 1 is
currently-in effect. With the moratorium in place, city
officials will be researching this issue and discussing
regulations to be included in the ordinance.
The right-of-way parking discussion pertained to
an ordinance that the commission is drafting to prohibit
parking along North Bay Drive from the Lake LaVista
Bridge to Pine Avenue.
This issue was brought up when Robert Byrne an-
nounced plans to build residential homes on the six lots
fronting North Bay Drive. The commission is con-
cerned that parking on North Bay Drive will create a
dangerous intersection with cars coming over the Lake
LaVista bridge. .. .


The potential disposition of city property concerns
a triangular strip of land that separates Lake LaVista in-
let and lot five of Byrne's property on North Bay Drive.
The strip is actually a piece of lot four, which was used
to dredge Lake LaVista inlet sometime after World
War II.
"This piece of property was left over after the
dredging was done and the seawalls were put into
place," said City Attorney Jim Dye. "Most likely, the
dredger left some 'wiggle room' so that they would not
dig into someone else's property."
The city owns the four-foot stretch of land on
Byrne's side and half the seawall on the opposite side
of the inlet. Byrne has inquired about purchasing the
strip, leading the commission to determine if the city
really needs this property.
Dye and Public Works Director Phil Charnock
have been researching city records to find a reason why
the city owns this property, but their investigation has
come up empty. There is no navigational easement, or
other explanation for why the city should claim this
strip of land.
The parking ordinance and disposition of property
will be voted upon in future commission work sessions.
The cell tower ordinance will not be put into effect until
after Oct. 1 .... .... -. .......

April 18 Center auction books still open


Donations are still coming in for the Anna Maria
Island Community Center's 14th annual auction ben-
efit, "Affaire to Remember 1998," to be held Saturday
evening, April 18, in the "grande ballroom" of St. Ber-
nard Catholic Church, Holmes Beach.
Additions to the hundreds of live and silent bidding
opportunities will be accepted through April 16. These
final donations will be included in an insert to the
auction's master program on the night of the event, still
leaving time for individuals and businesses to consider
being a part of the Community Center's biggest


fundraising gala of the year.
Auction chairman Trudy Moon has set a goal of
$75,000 for "Affaire '98," vowing to top last year's
best-ever proceeds of $66,000.
A capacity crowd of 400 guests is expected at what
has become one of the Island's most prestigious social
gatherings. At press time, only a literal handful of tick-
ets were left for the elegant evening of gourmet dining,
live entertainment and bidding excitement. Last year's
auction was sold out.

Holmes Beach rezone request may be

granted after years of persistence


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Years of patience and persistence may soon
pay off for Holmes Beach resident Rita Clark.
The city commission last week agreed to
proceed with a rezone request for her family's
property at the corner of Manatee Avenue and
Gulf Drive, next to Duffy's Tavern. The prop-
erty is currently zoned R-4 and Clark is seeking
a change to C-1.
"I think you'll agree that it's highly unlikely
that anyone would want to put anything residen-
tial on that corer." Commission Chairman Don
Maloney noted. "The change to C-l reflects
exactly what's already in the area and there will
be no access from Manatee Avenue."
Permitted uses in the R-4 zone are multiple,
two- and single-family dwellings. Permitted uses
'in the C-l zone are a variety of professional of-
fices as listed in the land development code.
Clark initiated her request in 1991 and at-
tended countless meetings with the city com-
mission and the planning commission over the
years to get to this point.


Building Inspector Bill Saunders said his de-
partment reviewed the request and found it con-
sistent with the comprehensive plan, as well as
with development patterns.
"The conditions of the area have changed due
to the traffic increase on Manatee Avenue, and the
use of adjacent land is predominantly professional,
commercial and recreational," Saunders pointed
out. "This is reflected in the zoning suggestions in
the future land use segment of the comprehensive
plan that show this property's land use change to
a commercial zoning."
Saunders said the next step is to notify adja-
cent property owners, post signs on the property
noticing the zone change and advertise the
change 15 days prior to the public hearing.
The public hearing was set for May 12 at 7
p.m.
If the commission grants the request at the
public hearing, the city attorney will draft an
ordinance changing the city's zoning map. The
commission will discuss the map change at a
work session and then the ordinance must pass
first and second readings.


pagne reception starting at 5 p.m. with hors d'oeuvres
provided by the Beach Bistro and the Chiles Group
restaurants (the Sandbar, the Beach House and the Mar
Vista Pub), followed by.an assortment of dinner deli-
cacies catered by Harry's Continental Kitchens at 6:30.
The live auction will begin at 8:30 under the direc-
tion of former Islander and professional auctioneer
Bobby Smith. Music will be provided by the flute and
guitar duo, Serenata.

Marco Polo attorney makes deal on pool tables


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Pool tables were replaced with foozeball tables in
Marco Polo's Pizza in an effort to stave off a city in-
junction to close the business.
Holmes Bea0~ commissioners last week struck a
deal with Richard,Buckle, attorney for Marco Polo's,
and agreed to postpone an injunction hearing slated for
April 1. In turn, owner Tracey Glarner and manager
Jesse Mullen promised to remove two pool tables from
the business in the Anna Maria Island Center.
The issue began in January when Benderson Devel-
opment Company, the shopping center's owner, was cited
for lack of a site plan for Marco Polo Pizza and Marco
Polo Ice Cream. The site plan must include both the pizza
restaurant and the restaurant's ice cream operation, which
moved to another store front in the same center.
The company submitted a site plan on March 6 but
because it had not yet been approved by the city com-
mission, Benderson was called before the code en-
forcement board. The board gave Benderson until April

10 to come into compliance.
On March 9, the city filed an injunction against the
business for operating without city approval due to lack
of a site plan. The business has been operating for
more than a month without city approval.
In addition, Benderson is at odds with Glarner and
Mullen regarding the use of the premises. 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
addition of pool tables, video games and a bar.
When Benderson presented its site plan to the city
commission last week, Building Inspector Bill
Saunders said the ice cream parlor was no longer an
issue. A shared parking agreement with other stores in
the shopping center and a new city ordinance reducing
the size of parking spaces had solved the problem.
However, he said the pizza business is still at issue
because the site plan shows dining tables instead of
pool tables.
"It has to be what the site plan says," Mayor Carol
Whitmore noted. "Amend the site plan to remove the


tables and put pool tables on the drawing."
Saunders said Benderson is responsible for making
any changes to the plan. Bob Spanos, construction
manager for Benderson Development, said the com-
pany.will not allow the. pool tables. ,
City Attorney Richard Groff said the table issue is
not the city's concern but is an issue for Benderson and
the tenant to resolve.
"What if they took out the pool tables and it was
inspected and approved, then they put the pool tables
back in?" Spanos asked.
"They would be brought before the code enforcement
board," Saunders replied. "In our code, you can find
against the property owner and/or the violator. And if you
can't attach the property, which is why we go against the
property owner, then you can go against any goods you
can find in the possession or ownership of the violator."
Buckle asked commissioners to approve the site
plan "so they can mitigate their damages. Then I sup-
pose you wouldn't have a problem with putting a cloth
over the pool tables until we resolve this with
Benderson?"
"The site plan shows a use that doesn't reflect the
reality that's there, and that would be the problem with
approving it." Groff said. "I would have to research
what would have to be done to take that use out. It
might take something more severe that throwing a cloth
across the tables."
"It's not a billiard parlor, it's a restaurant with rec-
reation," Whitmore stressed. "Approve it and they can
cover the pool tables until they resolve their problem
with Benderson."
Commissioner Sandy Haas-Martens said she has a
problem with approving an incorrect site plan.
Buckle then offered to remove the pool tables if the
city would cancel the injunction hearing.
"As long as Mr. Buckle understands that this will
be a postponement of the hearing not a withdrawal of
the claim," Groff replied. "The impact of withdrawing
from a fight now delays your power to get another in-
junction. If these other cooperative remedies don't
solve the problem, the city would be behind onithe
judge's calendar in getting it restarted."

City to ease up further on restaurant parking


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach commissioners last week agreed to
change the city's method of determining the required
number of parking spaces for restaurants.
Bill Zalla, owner of Marina Bay restaurant, re-
quested the change. Zalla was cited by the code en-
forcement board in January because his parking lot is
35 spaces short according to the number of seats in the
building.
Last month the city commission passed an ordi-
nance reducing the size of parking spaces from 10 by
20 feet to 9 by 19 feet. This added 15 spaces to Marina
Bay's parking; however, the restaurant is still 20 spaces


short of its requirement.
In the city's code there are two methods to deter-
mine the number of parking spaces. One method re-
quires one parking space for every 80 square feet of
total building space including the kitchen, bathrooms
waiting area and the like. The second method requires
one parking space for every three seats in the customer
seating area.
"Generally the square footage requirement is the
most stringent," Building Inspector Bill Saunders ex-
plained. "According to the code, we must apply the
most stringent method. We can't make an exception for
one individual but you can change the code."
Commission Chairman Don Maloney suggested


changing the code to accept the least restrictive
method.
"That won't work," Commissioner Luke Courtney
pointed out. "If you do the least restrictive, someone
can jam the building full of tables and the parking
won't be adequate."
"The seating is what really dictates how many
people are there and how many parking spaces are re-
quired," Public Works Supervisor Joe Duennes said.
"Why not go with seating alone?"
Commissioners instructed City Attorney Patricia
Petruffto draft the change, which will be reviewed by
the planning commission before being sent back to the
commission.


Bradenton Beach gets a little brighter next week


By Paul Roat
"Let there be light!" is how John Chappie could
have phrased his announcement last week that street
lights in Bradenton Beach will be operation again,
some by the middle of next week.
Chappie, vice mayor of the city, said the conten-
tious light fixtures along Bridge Street should be re-
paired and glowing by April 15. The rest of the city's
decorative street lights are due to be shipped from a
California manufacturer by late next month and should
be installed and operational by June 15.
Lighting has been an embarrassment to officials in
the city since 1994, when the city first received
$500,000 in state funds for streetscape improvements
in the Bridge Street area. The Bridge Street lights, with
their graceful arched globes under wide hoods atop
deep green supporting posts, never really did work
right.
The electrical ballasts of those lights were at the
base of the posts. When the street flooded in heavy
rains a somewhat common event the lights would
short out. Also, the attachments between the light
globes and the supporting arms tended to break when-
ever there were heavy winds, also common on barrier
islands.
When the city received a second $500,000 state


grant last year for more streetscape work, everyone
agreed that the problems of the previous lights would
not be repeated, and decided to fix the old lights at the
same time.
However, the streetlights that the city selected and
the lights that were eventually shipped and installed
were not the same. The lights at First Street and along
northern Gulf Drive also were faulty: the attachment


between the globe hoods and the arms leaked, causing
the glass globes to fill with water and once again short.
The contractor on the second grant, Mega Force
Construction, agreed to issue a bond until the manufac-
turer got the lights right to the tune of about $52,000.
Apparently, the problems will be fixed within the
next two months and the city will once again be bright
after dark.

A date's a date
Don't most holidays fall on the same date bar-
ring government interference for three-day weekends?
Isn't Christmas always on Dec. 25? Isn't Fourth of
July on July 4? What changes besides Thanksgiving
and Easter from year to year?
And who decides what date they change to?
Well, recent discussions over what establishes the
date of Easter had to be settled by Encyclopedia
Britannica and Snooks Adams.
Actually, Snooks, former- Island police chief,
brought in a worn little slip of paper with the definitive
formula, short and simple, for determining the date of
Easter. It takes Encyclopedia Britannica considerably
more space to explain the same thing.
According to Britannica, Easter is "probably" the old-
est Christian observance after Sunday,-which came to be
regarded as a weekly celebration of the Resurrection.
It states that Easter is celebrated by Western Chris-
tians on the first Sunday after the full moon that occurs
upon or next after the vernal equinox, March 21. If the full
moon occurs on a Sunday, Easter is the Sunday after.
Therefore, Easter can fall between March 22 and April 25.
Spring arrives when the earth is tilted so that the
sun is directly over the equator. In the northern parts of
the world, the first day of spring is on or about March
21 the vernal equinox. Vernal meaning spring and
equinox, equal night. Night and day are the same
length, each lasting exactly 12 hours on this day.
Britannica says the Easter rule was set after contro-
versy and uncertainty, which lasted until the 8th cen-
tury. A slightly different calculation is followed in the
Eastern Orthodox Church with the result that, although
sometimes coinciding with the West, it can fall one,
four or five weeks later.
The possibility of a fixed date for Easter has been
discussed and supported among some churches but ac-
cording to Britannica again, adoption would depend on
agreement being reached among the various churches.
That seems nearly as likely as the three Anna Maria
Island city governments agreeing to Island consolidation.
In preparation of this miracle, churches have dis-
cussed the second Sunday in April as the fixed date.
Under legislation enacted in 1986, daylight saving
time begins at 2 a.m. on the first Sunday of April and
ends at 2. a.m. on the last Sunday of October.
Wouldn't it be coincidental to coincide the change
to Daylight Saving Time with Easter so we wouldn't
be so inclined to forget it.
Oops. Did you "spring forward?" Did you change
the batteries in your smoke alarms, as the pink bunny
and the Anna Maria Fire District would like you to re-
mind you to do?

To the gentlefolk downtown
Grateful we are for the exciting news of the con-
structive community opportunity of the Cortez school-
house proposal..
We strongly support the Manatee County commis-
sioners in enabling this and taking the needed first step
toward its funding.
Background as from the Cranbrook Academy of
Art in Michigan fuels our interest that artist Robert
Sailors appreciated and beautified that former
schoolhouse site at Cortez. We submit that commu-
nity possession plus thoughtful participatory devel-
opment of a park, museum and gallery promises
great good for Cortez and for her several neighbor-
ing communities.
We urge the Manatee County board to take the
brave initiative of $100,000 to start this project.
Many of us in west Florida will benefit from this
vision and development, so welcome beyond other
"changes" that often "blight" neighborhoods. To bring
more beauties near our homes, akin to those nearby in
Sarasota, is a welcome prospect.
The Cortez schoolhouse as an art and community
center plus can enrich many lives. We hope for your
continuing support for it.
Rev. Dr. and Mrs. A.R. Taylor Denues,
Holmes Beach

Thanks to all
In the Feb. 25 Islander Bystander the obituary of
my brother, Thomas Martel,-was published. I would
like to thank you for doing this service.
I would like to send a thank you through the news-
paper to all the people who helped us, my husband
Andrew and myself. To Tom's many friends who
helped with the enormous task of cleaning, and to their
expressions of heartfelt sympathy. In 1969, Tom came
to Florida and made many friends, many of whom were
his extended family. At this time of grief, they made us
feel welcome and part of their family.
Special thanks to Dana, Sue, Maddy, Mike,
Madelynne, Joe Marko, Jeannie, Dagmar, Greg and
Alice. I can never repay your kindnesses.
S Cecelia A.' Bomlette, Bil'lerica,- MA ...


Thank you, volunteers
I would personally like to thank our Anna Maria
Fire District volunteers and especially Capt. Dennis
Dotson.
I had been in a full cast on my left leg and could
not get down two flights of stairs from my home. I
could not even go to my doctor. Thanks to our terrific
fire department and their wonderful service for retriev-
ing me from my home to a waiting car. On returning
from my doctor, they drove me home.
Thank you.
Virginia Kryszczuk, Holmes Beach

Thank you, Holmes Beach
The Anna Maria Island Art League would like to
thank the employees of the City of Holmes Beach for
their wonderful support before, during and after our
"Springfest," the 10th annual Anna Maria Island Fes-
tival of Fine Arts and Crafts.
As most of our Island knows, the construction of the
new city hall created an opportunity for our festival to be
relocated. Since our arts festivals are a primary source of
income for our not-for-profit organization, we were very
concerned about the change of location. From the very
beginning, Mayor VanWagoner and Public Works Direc-
tor Joe Duennes were there to help in any way they could.
The Friday before the event, Skip Nunn of public
works helped round up enough traffic cones to guide
visitors to the parking area. Saturday, Bill Saunders of
public works and Chief Price and Capt. Losek of the
fire department were there to make sure we had enough
electricity. Losek went above and beyond the call of
duty with his great patience since we kept overloading
the power sources in his building.
And finally, thanks to Lt. Stephenson and Officers
McGowin and Kuusela of the police department for
doing a terrific job with traffic control, guiding visitors
to parking during a beautiful, but hot and dusty, day.
If we have forgotten anyone, please forgive the
omission and know that you are truly appreciated.
The Anna Maria Island Art League

TffOSE WER THE DAYS
Part 6, The Secret Life of Marion Colman
by June Alder


I -C-V$ q


It was behind these ivy-covered walls that the granddaughter of Anna Maria's
pioneer homesteader found her purpose in life.


LATIN LOVER


After Marion Colman's graduation
from Lakeland High School in 1914
(she was second in her class), her par-
ents (George Colman ran a country
store) somehowfound the wherewithal
to send her through college. At Florida
State College for Women in Tallahas-
see, Marion promptly fell in love. Not
with a mere mortal. Horace, the great-
est poet of Rome's Augustan age, be-
came her hero and poetry her lifelong
passion.

By Marion Colman
My next educational adventure was
at Florida State College for Women
[now known as Florida State Univer-
sity]. I majored in English but also took
music vocal and instrumental.
I took Latin in my freshman year. I
had had a little Latin in high school but
thought it difficult and not very useful.
College Latin under Dr: Gary was con-
siderably different. He was a rather
short man and not outstanding in ap-
pearance but my, how he could teach
Latin!
I wrote a short poem in his honor
using a meter that was an imitation of
the meter we had been studying in class:

O, Dr. Gary, to you I address my lay.
To you my muse doth thankfully lend
her claim,
Who hath inspired in me a long-dead
language,
Making it bloom with a meaning bright
and new.

To you alone is due my delight to learn
Of Horace and his beloved Sabinefarm,
Of Cicero and other friends of classics,
Never forgetting the stubborn mind of
Cato.

Before Ifirst came under their magic
spell,
The Roman heroes seemed to me far
away.
Their lives were cold, in no way kin to
mine -


Colorless, meaningless, distant, dead
indeed.

But you have placed the telescope to my
eye
And brought their lives and writings
close to me.
Far more inspired seems now their po-
etry,
Mirth seems more merry and wisdom
far more sage.

And ifperchance my muse should some
day take flight
And bear me to poetry's happy real,
I'll think of him who loved his Sabine
villa,
And of the one who made me love the
past.

Dr. Gary read the poem once in
class, but it being quite personal, he
didn't give it the emphasis I thought it
ought to have. I studied classical Greek
for a year, but it was a small class and
I didn't get as much out of it as I should
have.
After graduation I took a little
Greek on my own initiative. I wrote this
poem, imagining a son asking his father
to explain about a strange animal he had
observed:

What is that fearful, fierce and wild,
incorrigible cuss?
Say "creature," don't say "cuss," my
child,
'Tis slang. The creature here is styled
The hippopotamus.
From two Greek words the name stems

'Hippos, the horse,' and 'potamus, the
river,' see?
Came the son's reply, The river's plain
enough, of course,
But why they called that thing a horse
Is what is Greek to me.

Next: Marion takes
the hurdles

YOUR -]INI


'A wonderful community'
I thank God everyday that I am in such a wonder-
ful community where friends, neighbors and businesses
pitch in to help in a time of need. Their backs may be
aching, but I want them to know how much they are
appreciated.
Thanks go to Island Lumber for bringing over its
forklift to get a 1,000-pound piece of equipment deliv-
ered to my business-off the truck; to Bill from Island
Florist, Chris from Taaco Fish Bicycle Co., Earl
Mowry from Island TV, Sandy Keller, Candy and Mel
Rector for carrying it inside.
Thank you, all.
Joan Carter, J & J Graphics, Holmes Beach

Small 'bone' for trolley
I have a little bone of contention about the Trolley
Systems of America that operates on the Island. This
concern is about their abrupt changes in schedules.
On March 26 I rode the trolley to St. Armand's
Circle. Upon boarding the trolley the passengers were
informed of a change in the schedule that day arrival
time at St. Armand's would be 11 a.m. and pickup at
2 p.m. This was due to the trolley's being used for a
wedding later that day.
Three hours to lunch and shop leisurely at St.
Armand's is hardly sufficient.
If the trolley wishes to serve the public and private
sector then I propose providing another vehicle. Since
there were only 11 people on the trolley and they hope
to increase their ridership then I suggest extending the
pickup time. It's definitely not worth one's time for a
three-hour stay at $5 per ride. Not to mention watch-
ing the clock.
L. Pauline Graves, Bradenton Beach

Airboat appreciation
I moved here from Indiana a year and six months
ago. I've lived on Perico Island the entire time. Many
people have visited me and have enjoyed the trip we
have taken with Richard Cremaschi on Manatee Air-
boat Tours Inc.


My 81-year-old mother was thrilled to see roseate
spoonbills and osprey nesting in the mangroves on her
nature tour. My grandchildren saw live conch making
its way across the flats and sponges that live in the shal-
lows off of Palma Sola Bay.
Richard is very knowledgeable about the ecologi-
cal balance of the area and has always been a fountain
of information. He is very aware of the many birds that
live in the area and respects them at all times.
The noise of the boat is more annoying to people
who are not used to his presence. It is the type of boat
that can take us to these magical places in shallow
water. The resident birds do not flinch, for they are
used to this red rover who makes his way through their
territory many times a day. He is showing the riches of
our paradise to all who take his excursion.
I have taken the trip about 15 times and each one
has been different. Please know that if you venture out
on a beautiful day you will see the remarkable riches
of Perico Island too.
Keep up the good work Richard. You do us a ser-
vice and at affordable price. See you next month when
my grandchildren will be back. They want to go again.
Ruth VanMeeter, Perico Island

Show 'a success'
The Women's Guild of St. Bernard Catholic
Church would like to thank all the people who helped
to make our spring luncheon and style show such a
success. Special thanks to Irene's dress shop for the
beautiful creations donated for the event.
Burdette Doerr, Holmes Beach

Players say thanks
On behalf of the Anna Maria Island Senior Tennis "
Group, I wish to thank the 26 businesses and individu-
als who donated merchandise and-gift certificates for
our annual tennis tournament held March 21 at the
Anna Maria Island Community Center courts.
We are an active group and are grateful to all for
their support.
Alan E. James, Holmes Beach


Thanks for 'Welcome home'
Over the years I have been asked on many occa-
sions why I chose to live on this particular Island. At
any given moment I could either cite dozens of reasons
or none that came to mind. Today I experienced one
glowing example of the tremendous spirit of family
that most of us share on our Island.
Thanks to that flu that most of us contracted in the past
year, I managed to get pneumonia which led to septice-
mia and eventually seven weeks in Blake Hospital.
Thanks to God and an extremely talented and dedi-
cated staff at Blake, I was rescued from the brink of
death, lacking only a couple of miscellaneous body
parts.
While I was at Blake, several good friends were
organizing a fundraising event to help me "come
home." Among the roughly 50 donated items to be
raffled were lunches, dinners, lawn chairs, tickets to
Devil Rays and Lightning games, a haircut, and a pool
cue. There were two trays of lasagna and copious
amounts of wine and spirits enjoyed by many and
a commemorative sweatshirt for me.
It would be impossible for me to individually thank
everyone that participated in the day's festivities.
It was an awfully nice welcome home.
This sort of outpouring of affection occurs daily on
this little hunk of sand we call home. It's just one of
1,000 reasons I'll continue to live on this Island. We are
truly a family.
Tom Wright, Holmes Beach "and proud of it"

Easter sharing by AID
All Island Denominations (AID) distributed Easter
gift SHARE packages at the Anna Maria Island Com-
munity Center March 28. We thank Angeli Vergillo,
Center education director, and Claire Clark from AID
for supervising.
Special thanks also to members of Moose Lodge No.

Vince Gallalee, co-chairmen, for their donation of a large
bag of cuddly stuffed animals and other Easter gifts.

Artist son makes Island
parents proud
"The show may not shake the art world, but it is a
big deal to us," says Holmes Beach resident Steve
LeGore.
The works of LeGore's son, artist Christopher
LeGore of Gainesville, were on display in his first solo
exhibit at the Off Center Theater of the Tampa Bay
Performing Arts Center in Tampa. The exhibit ran
through April 4.
The artist holds a 1995 bachelor of fine arts degree
from the Art Institute of Boston. He continued his stud-
ies at Eberhard Karls University in Tubingen, Ger-
many, and was the only foreign student accepted to the
State Academy of Visual Arts in Stuttgart, where he
studied under Professor Heinz Edelmann, creator of the
Beatles' "Yellow Submarine."
LeGore has been described as "a rising young tal-
ent whose works show a great energy and an acute
color sense," according to a spokesperson from the
Performing Arts Center.
"His far-ranging techniques carry weight and form
through strong textural elements and soft background
fades."
For more information about the show, call 813-
222-1092.

By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Mosquitoes will be numerous and they'll come
early and stay late and it's all El Nifio's fault.
That's the unwelcome word from a man who
knows more than almost anyone wants to know about
the nasty little buggers.
"That last lot of El Nifo rain was worse than the
others this year for mosquito nurseries," said Mark
Latham, director of the Manatee County Mosquito
Control District.
"The area had dried out somewhat since the one
before it, and that gave the mosquitoes a start and this
one helped them along," he said, "and temperatures are
higher now."
Latham said his crews have begun setting mosquito
traps, which lure night dwellers. Sarasota County
started earlier and has found 1,000 mosquitoes per trap
per night for several days now.
The traps are small screened prisons with a tiny
battery-powered light bulb and a bit of dry ice that
emits a gas similar to that let off by a mosquito host,
such as a bird.
"We don't know if this will be a year for St. Louis
encephalitis," Latham said, "but there have been a
couple of positive findings in Lee County and one in
Hillsborough, so we are checking the chickens to make


If you feel a mosquito bite but there's no mosquito
there, welcome to the crowd of "no-see-ums" victims.
It's their season in the sun, so to speak, and they'll be
with us for awhile.
They are a miniature breed of sand fly, described
as "a small biting midge" by Jo Legg, horticulturist
with the Manatee County extension service.
The little demons can slip easily through the stan-
dard 16-mesh window screen that stops mosquitoes,
she said. They're everywhere, even far inland, but es-
pecially thick in barrier island and bay areas, and
around ponds and bogs.
They are at their voracious worst at dawn and dusk
when the wind dies, for they don't prosper in even a
moderate breeze or in bright sunlight.
They breed like crazy. The female is the biter, for
she needs blood for eggs and she can lay 50 to 100 eggs
per blood meal and she eats once a day. That goes on
for weeks in the no-see-um's life cycle.
There's little that can be done against them beyond
staying indoors behind fine-mesh screen in the evening.
Anything that kills mosquitoes kills no-see-ums, said
Legg, but they can be around where there are no mos-
quitoes and it's hardly practical for homeowners to try
to control them. Fogging of shrubbery and lawns with
five percent Malathion solution helps a bit, she said.
No-see-ums like ankles, probably because they're
bare, and they especially dote on soft vulnerable spots
such as eyes and noses. They fly low and they fly high.


sure it doesn't pop up here."
The disease shows up in chickens but does not af-
fect them. Mosquito control workers monitor flocks
around the county for signs of encephalitis, but "it
hasn't been seen in Manatee County since last Novem-
ber. It seems about gone."
As long as the nights are fairly cool, he said, it
takes mosquitoes 10 days to two weeks to go through
a life cycle. In summer, that is cut to six days.
Manatee County has seven bug-fighting trucks and
two helicopters, as well as one fixed-wing aircraft
which it plans to replace with a twin-engine helicopter.
Crews usually spend winters clearing access trails,
overhauling machinery and maintaining buildings, but
this year they've been in the field much of the time.
Florida has 75 species of mosquitoes, most of them
found in the Manatee area.
The most irksome ones right now include Asian
tigers, which hang out near houses and sting viciously
in the daytime, and little brown ones that breed in bro-
meliads and are fierce biters.
The best way for residents to fight them is to let
Latham's group know of any infestations by calling
722-3720. And, of course, emptying water from all
outdoor containers, shells, old tires and so on.
And lay in the insecticide: the little fiends will only
get worse as the summer rainy season comes along.


They like warm bodies better than cool ones, so people
working or exercising or otherwise enjoying them-
selves are a more tempting lunch for the teeny mon-
sters.
Since no-see-ums can't hack the cold, they go
where we'd like all of them to be all the time dead
or dormant, that is when the days shorten and nights
lengthen and chill. About November.
So look on the bright side, it's only seven months.

Holmes Beach adjustment board

turns down variance request


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The Holmes Beach Board of Adjustment last week
turned down a variance request from C. Clarke Poole
to expand a garage at 502 69th Street.
The request was for a 20 percent variance of four
feet into a yard setback at the street to expand a garage
from one-car to two-car capacity. Board members
agreed that the request did not meet the city's criteria
for a variance.
Board Chairman Hugh Holmes Jr., a contractor,
offered to abstain from voting. He said before the
Pooles applied for a variance, their real estate agent
asked him for advice on the possibilities of applying for
a variance. In addition, Holmes said one of his employ-
ees was contacted by the Pooles about construction
details.
However, after consulting the city's administrative
code, board members agreed that Holmes could partici-
pate in the discussion.


Poole said the variance would give him enough
space to place his driveway and garage entrance on
69th Street rather than on Marina Drive, and the garage
would be on the front of the house rather than on the
side.
Building Inspector Bill Saunders explained the
variance criteria check list and his opinion on why the
request does not meet the criteria including:
There most be special circumstances particular to
the parcel or building.
The property owner must not be deprived of
rights enjoyed by others in the district.
Granting the variance will not give the applicant
special privileges denied to others in the district.
"I don't feel he has met the criteria for this vari-
ance," Saunders said. "This is a staff opinion. You have
the right to disagree with it."
Both board member Jim Meena said City Attorney
Patricia Petruff advised the board that a variance re-
quest must meet all of the criteria or it must be rejected.

Lamb cakes
I had the best oyster sandwich since three summers
ago at Temptation restaurant on Boca Grande, this time
at D.Coy Ducks. Good tasty oysters, lightly fried.
Mmm good. And it reminded me of a Julia Child tele-
vision show, the second reminder of'that same show
within days of each other.
I was half watching, as I'm prone to doing three or
,four things at once, as Julia was cooking something
with oysters and carrying on about how wonderful the
oysters were "raw" on the half shell. Suddenly, while
shucking, she popped one in her mouth to accent her
point.
"Pfft. Phewee. Pfft." She spit the oyster out on the

floor so fast I almost missed it. And I wished I had. She
spit and spewed a few times and then grabbed a handy
kitchen towel to wipe her mouth. Obviously, she got
one bad oyster.
Poor Julia.
So I was reminded of this again over a lunch con-
versation last Saturday where oysters were also the
"special." And Joey Lester and I traded Julia Child sto-
ries. It seems Joey had seen the matriarch of cooking
"live" in Aspen where she had to hurry through a dem-
onstration and couldn't finish the dish she was prepar-
ing.
It seems she had forgotten to compensate for the
10,000-foot elevation where water is very slooow to
come to a boil. Unfortunately, boiling was essential to
the recipe.
"She just decided to 'pretend' it was done to
roars of laughter," according to Lester.
I like my meals to be more than pretend cooked so
I guess that's another reason to be grateful to live at sea
level.
What's cooking at your house on Easter Sunday?
Easter dinner at my place will be more like a Jessie's
Island Store ham sandwich late in the day, after brunch
with Snooks and Liz Adams, Chuck and Joey Lester
and assorted family members.
We'll be dining at one of Snooks' favorite estab-
lishments located overlooking what was once a sand
bar and owned in part by a gentleman whose name
shall remain secret but whose initials are Fla. Gov.
Lawton Chiles.
Well, reservations were booked up months ago at
my favorite brunch spot that being where my son
Damon is coincidentally sous chef, the Bradenton
Country Club. And since he's working, he sure can't
cook for the rest of us at home.
Lamb is the main focus at many Easter dinners and
our family was no exception before my kids became
busy, busy, busy and before "life with a newspaper" put
a screeching halt to my culinary "promise."
This recipe has been passed along to many friendly
carnivores over the past umpteen years. The adapted
version of Julia Child's original from The Art of French
Cooking, volume 1, has become a classic among
friends.

It's perfect for Florida it's grilled. It's also per-
fect for entertaining as most work is done far in ad-
vance. I like to put out fresh fruit and a yogurt dress-
ing for nibbles before a pre-sunset dinner. I also like to
grill before dark so there's no mistaking when the meat
is perfectly done.
We sit down to a Caeser salad while the finished
meat awaits carving usually requiring about eight
minutes. Then potato salad and cold asparagus spears
with a touch of Hollandaise make perfect accompani-
ments to the lamb in warm weather.
Never mind heating up the kitchen although
baked potatoes au gratin with fresh chopped rosemary
is one of the most delicious dishes I've ever enjoyed
with this meal.

First tip: Ask the butcher to de-bone and butter-
fly the leg of lamb for you and be sure to confirm
removal of a gland that makes lamb taste "gamey"
if left in. And call to order ahead from the butcher.
The de-boned leg of lamb should serve six to eight
persons easily.
Next step: Prepare the marinade/basting sauce.
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 minced clove of garlic
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1/4 teaspoon ginger
2 tablespoons olive oil

Tip 2: Get fresh rosemary. Drive all over town, or
if you must, buy a plant. Yes, it's that important.
Blend all but the oil. Add the oil and whip until you
achieve a mayonnaise-like texture.
Place the lamb in a roasting pan and pour half
the marinade over the fat side and sprinkle with gar-
lic salt. Turn and repeat. Marinate at room tempera-
ture at least one hour, turning and re-basting often.
Grilling! Prepare coals as if you were preparing
thick, juicy steaks. When the coals are ready, place
lamb fat side down and cook about 15 minutes or un-
til the fire gets too hot. No big flames. Turn lamb
over for another 15-20 minutes. Turn it back to the
fat side, cooking for a few additional minutes.
Repeat until done to your liking but keep in
mind, it's best on the medium-rare side. Guests who


want something a little more done should opt for 20
seconds in the microwave rather than overcooking
the entire leg.
To test for doneness, cut into the thickest part be-
fore removing from the grill. Let stand for eight min-
utes before carving lengthwise against the grain into
thin slices.
Tip 3: Double the recipe for the marinade/bast-
ing sauce because it's great as a sauce with the fin-
ished lamb.
As Julia Child would say with her distinctly
high-pitched gargle ... "Bon appetite "
As I've learned to say, "Reservations?"

True Grit
Mornin' mister. Welcome to the Dixie Dawn Cafe.
Folks around' here call me Ma. Kin I hep you?
Do you have a breakfast special?
Sure do. Two eggs any way ya like 'em, two strips
of hickory-smoked, country bacon, toast and yore
choice of either hashbrown 'taters or grits. Coffee's
extry but we keep yore cup filled.
What's grits?
You really don't know or you just pullin' my leg?
They don't have grits where I come from.


F- c


Well, some people call grits "Georgia ice cream"
but it ain't really no dessert like rice puddin*. Grits is
made out of corn and is something' ya build a meal
around Some folks take their fried eggs and stir the
yellers right into the grits. You don't ever see 'em do
that to the hashbrowns, no siree.
If yore still in town for lunch, we got this sugar-
cured ham special with grits and red-eye gravy that's
real popular.
Course, around here, mullet is king and when you
order it you gonna get grits with it whether you want
it or not because it would be a downright crime to serve
it any other way. Now the secret in mullet is to catch
it on the way to the frying pan but that's another story.
Now if you cooking' at home, some folks make a
whole meal outta grits and 'mater gravy and the beauty
of it is that cold leftover grits can be sliced, dipped in
egg batter and fried for breakfast the nex' morning.
Used to, folks always cooked their grits plain with
just a little salt added to the cooking' water.
Nowadays, folks started cooking things right in the
pot with the grits. Lord a mercy, there's more kinda

grits being stirred up than Jello's got flavors and Carter
has pills. There's garlic grits, onion grits, jalapefio grits,
cheese grits more kinds than you can shake a stick at.
Now I like plain ole rat cheese in my grits but some
of my high-brow Cracker neighbors have started addin'
all kinds of strange cheese in their grits that I can't even
pronounce and ain't even gonna try.
Now dogs is partial to grits, too. Back in the Great
Depression, you could buy a can of salmon or mack-
erel for 10 or 15 cent. If you stirred a can of that in a
big pot of hot grits, you would have every dog in town
camped on yore back porch a hasslin' and a salivatin'.
Of course if you was also real hongry, it was pretty
tasty and stuck to your ribs like wallpaper glue.
Used to, you had to cook grits awhile and keep it
stirred so it wouldn't stick to the bottom of the pot.
Now they got instant grits you just stir in biling water
for five minutes and most folks can't tell the difference.
You ready to order?
Yes, I'll have my eggs over easy, wheat toast and the
hashbrowns with ketchup. SayMa, couldyouput one grit
on the side so I can see what all the fuss is about?

School's 'Morning Show' teaches valuable skills


By Andrew White
Islander Reporter
Anna Maria Elementary School students are gain-
ing valuable technology skills by participating in the
"Morning Show," a student-run television program.
Developed as part of the school district technology
plan, the program gives students hands-on experience
working with cameras and sound equipment. Students
write, produce and perform a show each weekday morn-
ing. Its purpose is to inform the school of daily events.
Five different teams make up the morning show
cast, with each. team being responsible for a different
day of the week. The teams consists of eight to ten
volunteer students who trade off camera, sound and
anchor duties so that everyone learns to use all of the
equipment. Volunteer parents supervise the program,
but students do all of the work to produce the show.
Fourth- and fifth-graders are eligible to apply for
the program. To join, each prospective crew member
must first sign a contract agreement with the school. In
the-contract students agree to be at school at 7:30 a.m.
on their assigned day, maintain a "C" average in aca-
demics and to be a role model for other students while
in the studio.
Anna Maria Elementary Media Specialist Warren
Phillips is director of the morning show program. He
feels the show is good real world training for students.
"The kids get hands-on experience with the technology,
while also improving their speaking and writing skills,"
Phillips said.
.John Pocino was the first volunteer parent to get
involved with the morning show program. Using his
experience in the television industry, Pocino helped the
school buy the necessary equipment and get the show
rolling.
Anna Maria elementary received funding for the
television equipment through a series of state technol-
ogy grants-Th-school was the first in Manatee County
to rece-v such funding and fulfilled a grant require-
Ainent by building the production studio.

Last year's Easter Sunrise Service drew huge crowds. Islander Photos: Edna Tiemann


Easter services observed in region


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Perhaps 1,500 Christians will celebrate Easter at
sunrise services on-our barrier islands Sunday.
The celebrations of the Resurrection will be at 6:30
a.m. on Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key. The
Island event last year attracted more than 1,000 persons
and the Longboat ceremony, the first one there, drew
300. More are expected this year, said their sponsors.
On Anna Maria, the 34th sunrise service will be
at the Manatee County Public Beach, at the Gulf end
of Manatee Avenue. It is sponsored once more by the
Kiwanis Club of Anna Maria Island.
All seven of the Island's churches will participate,
and the collection will be divided among them.
Kiwanis over the years has expanded and improved
its big stage and the large cross that rises behind it, and
it will be the centerpiece again this year.
Celebrants are advised to bring their own chairs.
The pavilion parking lot has plenty of room for their
cars, said Kiwanians.
Robert C. LoPiccolo, who co-chairs the event with
Jeff Asbury, outlined the program:
The Manatee High School Male Quartet will per-
form two numbers a cappella "Blow Trumpet
Blow" and "We Shall Walk in the Valley." The congre-
gation will sing "The Old Rugged Cross" and "Christ
the Lord Is Risen Today."
Prelude, LoPiccolo on the keyboard.
Invocation, Rev. J. Clement Walker of Harvey
Memorial Church.
Welcome, Kiwanis President Rich Bohnenberger.
Scriptures, Father Donald Baier of St. Bernard
Catholic Church and Charles V. Reed of the First
Church of Christ Scientist.
Sermon, Rev. Wayne Kirk, Roser Memorial Com-
munity Church.
Offertory, Rev. James Meena, Island Baptist


Church.
Benediction, Rev. Danith Kilts, Gloria Dei
Lutheran Church.
Postlude, LoPiccolo.
Plantings are being donated by Everything Under
the Sun and printing is by Peacock Printing Co. Further
information may be obtained by calling 778-3364 or
778-7244.
The Longboat Key service will be at the
Bayfront Park Recreation Center, 4052 Gulf of
Mexico Drive, sponsored by the Island Chapel. This
community-wide event also advises participants to
bring their own seating.
A volunteer band led by Rev. Dr. Bill Grossman,
trombonist, will be featured and there are still openings
for Easter musicians, the leader stressed. Serita Roche,
musical director of the chapel, will lead the choir in
"Roll the Stone Away."
Rev. Grossman will give the homily, "The Prom-
ise of Easter."
This is a "rain or shine" celebration.

Haley's crowned as
first-half champs
It was a good week of baseball that saw some very
competitive games including Haley's first loss of the
season and a home run off the high fence in left field
by Mario Torres.

Late rally propels Bob Boast
Dodge to win
Bob Boast Dodge rode the complete-game, two-hit
pitching effort of Brian Faasse and the hitting of Torres
to take an 11-4 win over Kiwanis on Tuesday night.
Torres who went 3-for-3 on the night gave Bob
Boast a 1-0 lead in the third inning when he became the
first player this season to "go yard" and hit a home run
over the fence.
After Torres' blast, Cory Schafer and Matt Tornai
reached base on errors and Michael Mijares walked to
load the bases for Jessie Kane-Hartnet. A passed ball
sent Schafer scampering for home plate, but catcher
Aaron Stark hustled after the ball and dove to tag out
Schafer at home to get out of the inning trailing'l-0.
Stark led off the Kiwanis half of the inning with a
pop up to Mijares at second for the first out. Robby Dial
reached base with a single and moved to second on a
walk to Ryan Keller. A walk to Daniel Miller set the
stage for Mike Wojculewski, who responded with a
single to knock in Dial and Keller and give Kiwanis a
2-1 lead.
Gorden Tarbeck led off the top of the fourth with a
walk and quickly moved to third on passed balls. A walk
to Torres put two runners on base for Schafer, who hit a


grounder that handcuffed the second baseman and allowed
Tarbeck to score and tie the game at 2-2.
BBD looked like it was going to add to its lead
when, after a walk to Tornai, Faasse hit a long fly ball
that looked promising, but the left fielder made the
catch for the final out of the inning.
The bottom of the fourth had Kiwanis threaten-
ing with Dial at bat, following walks to Aaron Way
and Stark. Dial hit a grounder to the pitcher, who
wheeled and threw Way out at third. Stark, who
broke for second, got a break when the throw from
third sailed into right field, but Tarbeck backed up
the play perfectly and threw the ball to Faasse.
Faasse wheeled and gunned the ball to Torres cov-
ering home to nail Stark for the third out.
Bob Boast Dodge took control of the game in the
top of the fifth. Mijares led off by reaching base on an
error, then stole second and moved to third on the over
throw. Brian DeBellevue followed with a solid single
to plate Mijares and give BBD a 3-2 lead.
Kane-Hartnet reached base on a walk, putting run-
ners on first and second, which quickly turned to run-
ners on second and third. B.J. Keim stepped up and hit
the ball off the end of his bat to "spin" it past the third
baseman and score DeBellevue.
A walk to Billy Malfese loaded the bases for
Torres who, with the outfield playing deep, hit a shal-
low fly ball that dropped in front of the defense to score
Kane-Hartnet, making the score 5-2.
Schafer followed with a single to plate Malfese,
making the score 6-2 and an RBI fielder's choice by
Tornai scored Torres to make the score 7-2.
BBD scored four more runs via walks or errors to
take an imposing 11-2 lead into the bottom of the fifth
inning for Faasse, who after giving up lead-off walks
to Keller and Hill, struck out the side to end the game
as the 9 p.m. curfew went into effect.
Besides the strong efforts of Faasse and Torres,
others contributing to the win were DeBellevue who
went 2-for-4 with and RBI and Schafer who went 1-
for-3 with an RBI. Dial and Keller led Kiwanis with
a hit each, while Evan Wolfe got saddled with the

Tip 17, AMFD 4
Wednesday saw Joey Mattay make his major-
league pitching debut a successful one, pitching three
innings and allowing four hits, three runs and striking
out five batters to record the win, while Anthony Rosas
got saddled with the loss as he experienced some con-
trol problems with his pitching.
Leading the way for Tip were Lorenzo Rivera,

who each had a hit on the evening, with Dowling scor-
ing four runs.
For AMFD, Chase Parker had a 2-for-4 night with
two runs scored, while Jimmy Gallery had a triple and

Bob Boast Dodge 4, Haley's Motel 2
BBD rode the pitching and hitting of Mario Torres
to a close 4-2 win over previously unbeaten Haley's
Motel on Thursday night. Torres pitched a complete-
game, four-hitter allowing only two runs and one walk
while striking out nine batters.
At the plate, Torres went 2-for-3 with an RBI and
one run scored, while Dustin Cole and Brian
DeBellevue each had a triple. Billy Malfese and B.J.
Keim chipped in with singles.
For Haley's, Tyler Krauss got the pitching loss

players on its roster.
IFC gave up an early goal on a header by Steve
Papazahariove off a corner kick, but came back to tie
the score a few minutes later when Ken Bowers beat his
man down the wing and hit a cross on the ground that
saw Bill Brickse "dummydrawing" the defender to
him and allowing the ball to roll to Tim Bugna, who
finished to tie the score.
The rest of the day saw IFC scrambling to keep
Tarpon Springs at bay, but to no avail, as the Tarpons
poured it on in the second half to put the game away.
Playing well for IFC was man-of-the-match Mike
Collins, who hustled all game long, and Ken Bowers
who was all over the field in the tough loss.
The loss didn't dampen IFC spirits though, as the
team took advantage of the long trip, pooling in a van
rented from Island Limousine Service. They celebrated
a long, tough season on the ride home.
IFC is looking into playing in the Manasota Soc-
cer League in Palmetto, hoping to keep together for the
summer and staying in form for next season.

Boaters, boaters everywhere more than you even think


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
If it sometimes seems as though you see nothing
but boats when looking across our local waters, there's
a reason for that. According to latest state numbers,
there are 16,371 pleasure and commercial vessels reg-
istered in Manatee County.
Combine that with the 50,872 vessels registered in
Pinellas County and 18,264 in Sarasota that sometimes
come to visit, and you've got a lot of boats. You might
even call it a pretty good sized navy.
Over the entire state, there are 794,996 registered
boats. Thank goodness they don't all come visiting us
at once.

Local breakdown
By far the largest number of boats registered in
Manatee County fall into the 16- to 25-foot, 11-inch
class. There are 7,336 pleasure boats and 310 boats
registered as commercial vessels in that group.
Next largest group are the boats measuring 12 to 15
feet, 11 inches. These include 4,237 pleasure and 114
commercial boats.
Boats in the less-than-12-foot class, and remember
these include personal watercraft, total 2,286 pleasure
and 79 commercial vessels. There are 1,165 registra-
tions in the pleasure category for boats 26 to 39 feet,
11 inches and 98 in that commercial group.
Once you start moving up into the truly large boats,
numbers drop way off, of course. For example, there
are 117 pleasure boats and 60 commercial boats in the
40- to 64-foot, 11-inch class.
Finally, Manatee County has just one pleasure and
nine commercial boats larger than 65 feet.
As you might expect, Dade County leads the pack
when it comes to total number of registered boats in
Florida with 53,027. Second place goes to Pinellas with
50,872 and third is Broward with 44,151.

conchs and it looks as though the conservation effort
is paying off. But given the pollution and habitat de-
struction in the Keys, it's questionable when, if ever,
the fishery will be open again. .
The latest research is encouraging however- at least
in some areas. The state's queen conch research institute
reports there are more than 20,000 conchs in Key's wa-
ters, but all of that population growth has come in the
lower Keys. The waters around Marathon have lost what
few conch were found there in recent years.
The director of the two-person research program,
Bob Glazer, believes the degradation of waters in the
Marathon area is to blame for that. He's devised a suc-
cessful program to hatch conchs in a laboratory. Glazer
says he has a survival rate of 50 percent when he re-
leases small conch on Key reefs which is done on a
fall full moon when the conchs biggest predators, lob-
sters and loggerhead turtles, have moved off the areas
surrounding the reefs.
In the wild, conchs live an average of seven to 11
years, with the females laying up to 400,000 eggs, up
to 11 times a year, usually between March and Octo-
ber. Scientists believe that only about one in 8 million
of those eggs survive to breed again.

All conch now eaten here, such as in those wonder-
ful fritters we all know and love, are imported from
Jamaica or the Turks and Caicos islands.
A seafood dealer told me recently they're running
short there too, so before too many years pass, eating
conch at all may have become a thing of the past.

Wristband skeeter control.
Tired of that greasy kid's stuff we all use to keep
buzzing critters at bay now that skeeter season is coming? .
Well, there's a new way to wear your insect repellent.
A wristband.
Called Bugchaster, the reusable plastic wristband
contains a chemical that the maker claims neutralizes
the carbon dioxide that attracts mosquitoes. Makers
also claim the band emits a scent to clog the insect's
scent receptors. One test reportedly shows 70 percent
fewer mosquitoes landed on persons wearing the bands
than on those without them.
So they're not 100 percent effective. But if you
hate the greasy stuff, this might be worth a try. The
devices cost $2.99 and can be found at most Eckerd and
Walgreen drug stores.
See you next week.

College continues tomorrow; fishing good today


By Capt. Mike Heistand
Don't forget that the second session of the Anna
Maria Island Fishing College will be held April 9 at the
Anna Maria Island Community Center, 407 Magnolia
Ave., Anna Maria.
Thursday's session will feature offshore angling
tips for fishers. Registration is $25 for the course. In-
cluded in the price is a limited-edition T-shirt in sizes
either large or extra large. And, as always, the proceeds
go to the Center.
A special feature this year are artificial lures do-
nated by Island Discount Tackle.
To register, call the Center at 778-1908.
Here's some highlights of fishing action in local
- waters.
Dick at the Rod and Reel Pier said anglers there
caught a few cobia, lots of sheepshead, keeper mack-
erel and a slew of pompano. One lucky fisher Friday
caught a 34-inch snook, too.
Brian at the Anna Maria City Pier said anglers
there are catching pompano, sheepshead and the occa-
sional large snook.
The folks at the Miss Cortez Fishing Fleet said
the four-hour trips averaged 75 head of Key West
grunts and porgies. The six-hour trips averaged 200
head of Key West grunts, black sea bass and mangrove
snapper. The nine-hour trips averaged 25 head of red
grouper, mangrove snapper and black grouper.

Annie's Bait & Tackle said that Capt. Zack on the
Dee Jay II said he's finding cobia to 40 pounds, trout
to 24 inches, reds to 30 inches, plus pompano, bluefish,
Spanish mackerel and sheepshead. Zack says he's find-
ing snook season off to a slow start, but things should
get better soon.
Capt. Dave Pinkham on the Legend said he took
Marty Murphy of Boulder, Colo., out last week and got
him onto a 16-pound gag grouper in about 70 feet of
water. Snapper fishing is still excellent, Capt. Dave
said, and kingfish started hitting last week and are run-
ning up to 14 pounds.
Carl at Perico Harbor Bait & Tackle said wade
fishers were cleaning up on snook and finding redfish
starting to school. Trout action is scatter, Carl added.
Capt. Rick Gross said he found redfish and snook
were his best bets last week.
Peter at the Cortez Fishing Center said offshore
grouper fishing remains excellent right now, and snap-
per action is not far behind. Some cobia are starting to
be brought in, too. Backwater action includes snook,
redfish, trout, flounder and pompano.
On my boat Magic we're getting redfish up to 27
inches and snook up to 34 inches. Cobia and snapper
fishing are also good, and I've found that action has
really picked up since we can now get white bait.
Capt. Thom Smith from Anglers Repair said he's
getting a few redfish, some small snook and good-sized

Capt. Tom Chaya said mackerel, pompano, trout
and redfish were his week's highlights.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said fishing is im-
proving with the great weather and white bait is start-
ing to show up. He's hearing good reports of redfish
and snook in the backwater and kingfish staring to
move through in the Gulf. Cobia and pompano are also
being caught off the beaches.
