Siesta reject may become Key Royale bridge boon


By Paul Roat
A faint glimmer of funding hope for the Key
Royale Bridge was offered Monday at the cost of-a
similar span on Siesta Key.
The Holmes Beach bridge to Key Royale has been
deemed questionably safe and in dire need of replace-
ment by the Florida Department of Transportation.
However, the bridge is not a part of the state
highway system, and bridge repair funds are scarce,
to say the least the bridge is ranked low on a num-
ber of funding categories by the state. Even if it were
at the top of the list, construction would probably not
start for at least five years, when funds become
available.
Enter the Siesta Key bridge and Bradenton Beach
Mayor Connie Drescher.


Drescher, chair of the Island Transportation -Plan-
ning Organization and therefore a member of the
Sarasota-Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organiza-
tion, quietly listened to the tale of woe residents of Si-
esta Key told Monday.
The DOT had planned to replace a Siesta Key
bridge on Midnight Pass Road at a cost of $934,473.
The bridge is safe, DOT officials have said, but it is
"functionally obsolete" as it does not have breakdown
lanes, sidewalks or bike paths.
Siesta Key residents quite literally revolted at the
idea of the replacement bridge, saying the quaint charm
of the area would be disrupted by the new bridge and
that the DOT really meant to eventually widen the
highway, with the bridge serving as precursor to the
multi-lane road work.

Tell DOT no lights needed


at Coquina Beach


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Not only can baby turtles do without street lights,
so can drivers. And we should tell government so.
That is the view of Suzi Fox, who holds the state
turtle conservation permit for the Island and heads
Turtle Watch.
For years she has battled all three Island cities and
businesses and residents along the Gulf over lights that
attract hatchlings to their death. Now it's the state's turn,
and she's been after officials for months to do it right.
Turtles hatch at night and their instincts draw them
toward light, originally toward waters offshore that are
lighter than land so they would head into the relative
safety of the sea. Any inshore light is attractive, Fox
said, and hatchlings die every year under tires, under
attacks by predators inland, or often from the sun.
She said the people of the Island have been coop-
erative, municipalities and most businesses and resi-
dents keeping their lights off or shielded during hatch-
ing season, May to October.
Now the state is posing a new threat, and she be-
lieves it is due to engineers being unaware of turtle
problems.
When the Florida Department of Transportation
resurfaced Gulf Drive south of Bradenton Beach and
installed.turn lInes and a raised median at.the entrance


to Coquina Beach, it included plans to light at least the
median portion.
After meetings with local officials, state engineers
and environmentalists, Fox has concluded that the me-
dian needn't be lighted for traffic safety.
"Bradenton Beach doesn't want lights there," Fox
said. "The Florida Department of Environmental Pro-
tection doesn't want them, Turtle Watch certainly
doesn't.
"I'm certain that the DOT engineers who decided
on lights and the DEP people who approved the permit
for them did it all from aerial photographs and never
looked at the site itself.
"They haven't considered alternatives, such as
marking the median with reflectors the way the one at
Manatee Avenue and East Bay Drive is marked. It
works just fine."
Since the decision is made and the permit granted.
Fox feels the only hope is to convince the DOT boss
himself to reverse the lighting decision.
That's where Anna Maria Islanders come in. She
asks everyone who is interested in turtles to make their
opposition to lights known right away to:
David Twiddy, Secretary, District 1
Department of Transportation
P.O. Box 1249
Bartow. Fla. 33831.


In the wake of the citizen unrest, DOT District
Secretary David Twiddy said the state transportation
agency was re-thinking the whole bridge issue there.
"It's almost unanimous that the homeowners do
not want us to proceed with the project," he told MPO
members Monday.
That was when Drescher asked if the funds could
be transferred to Holmes Beach.
Twiddy said he would take the request under ad-
visement during deliberations on what to do with the
Siesta Key span. He is expected to make a decision
within a month.
Reconstruction of the Key Royale Bridge is esti-
mated to cost more than $900,000. DOT officials have
designed the new bridge at a cost of more than
$100,000.



Holmes Beach


to borrow


$1.2 million for


new city hall
By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The Holmes Beach Commission plans to approve
a $1.2 million loan from First Union National Bank to
finance the construction of its new city complex.
The loan will be amortized over 10 years with a
fixed interest rate of 4.8 percent. The loan is to be se-
cured by a lien on the city's infrastructure tax and pro-
jected franchise fees.
City Treasurer Ann Mitchell said the city has col-
lected approximately $1 million from the infrastructure
tax and will end up with $1.4 million when collection
ceases next June. County voters approved the collec-
tion of the tax for five years.
"We are entering into the loan agreement because
we are using the infrastructure funds for other
projects," Mitchell explained. "We have used some
money to fix the Key Royale Bridge, some to dredge
Bimini Bay and some may be used for bike lanes. It
wouldn't be prudent to spend it all on city hall."
In addition, the city recently approved further re-
pairs to the Key Royale Bridge and may have to fund
its replacement, if the Florida Department of Transpor-
tation does not approve funding.
Mitchell said if voters approve the collection of the
tax for another five years, the city will pay off the loan
immediately. If not, the loan will remain in place and
the city will make regular mortgage payments.
Payments on the loan are $12,610.87 per month,
Mitchell said. If the loan runs 10 years, the total of 120
payments will be approximately $300,000.

New parking law goes street by street


By Andrew White
Islander Reporter
At a recent work session, the Anna Maria City
Commission discussed a new parking ordinance.that
will replace parking regulations currently in effect and
give a clearer definition to parking laws within the city.
The new ordinance was drafted by City Attorney Jim
Dye and is based on a street-by-street schedule of parking
regulations. It takes into account regulations of individual
streets, such as the hours when parking is or is not allowed.
According to Dye, portions of the existing ordi-
nance have been deleted. These dealt mainly with the
city's traffic engineer.
"I think that has become an obsolete position," said
Dye of the traffic engineer. "The current ordinance


gives a lot of discretion to the city's traffic engineer,
but the best way to do it is to go street by street."
The new ordinance establishes the city's authority
to post "no parking" signs and states that lack of a "no
parking" sign is no defense for a violation. "The ordi-
nance sets up the regulations," said Dye. "The presence
of signs are simply for convenience."
The section that deals with the city's authority to
remove abandoned or parked vehicles on the rights of
way is based on current state laws, with one exception.
State laws give police officers the right to have a ve-
hicle removed from the right of way if it is within 30
feet of the edge of a paved street. Dye said he doesn't
think this applies to Anna Maria.
"I don't think the city has any paved streets that have


unpaved rights of way within 30 feet of the pavement's
edge," said Dye. The distance from the pavement has been
left blank in the ordinance with a proper size limit to be
added later by the city commission.
The Public Works Department is currently putting
together a schedule of each street's parking regulations. As
of the meeting last week, the department had a list from
Pine Avenue south that included the signs posted on each
street. They have counted more than 900 signs so far.
"It's amazing how many signs we have," said Pub-
lic Works Director Phil Charnock.
Once the schedule is finished, new parking regu-
lations can be done easily by addition and subtraction.
"It will be a matter of simply putting it into the proper
format and attaching it," said Dye.


Holmes Beach homeowners told to clean up yard


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The Holmes Beach Code Enforcement Board
last week gave George and Sylvia Harris, 7602 Ma-
rina Drive, 25 days to clean up their yard or face a
fine of $250 p6r day.
The couple was found guilty of violating sec-
tions of the city's code regarding maintaining a nui-
sance, maintaining or permitting a potential breed-
ing ground for mosquitoes and maintaining a
junkyard.
"Their property was strewn with all kinds of de-
bris and litter, tree limbs and storage of all kinds of
items all around the house," Code Enforcement Of-
ficer Walter Wunderlich explained. "They have
brought a lot of the property into compliance, but a
lot of debris is now stacked against the side of the
house and covered with black sheeting."
Wunderlich said the Harrises were not given a
warning. They were deemed to be repeat violators
and the 20 day warning to clean up the property
before facing a hearing before the board is waived.
The Harrises were found in violation of the same
codes by the board in 1992 and 1994.
"The things that Mr. Wunderlich is referring to-is
our lawn equipment, a roto-tiller and a lawn mower,"
Sylvia Harris noted. "We live on a corner and the back
yard is very, very narrow. We don't have much space
to put anything..If there are still things in violation, I
respectfully request a date for compliance.".
Board member Joe Bracken said there is no ex-
ception in the code relative to the property's con-
figuration.
Board chairman Chuck Stealey asked why the
problem keeps reoccurring.
"If you fix it, why doesn't it stay fixed?" he
asked.
"Things being objected to were not objected to
before," George Harris said. "They changed the rules.
We have cans of fertilizer and mulch that are neatly
stacked'and covered that are being objected to now."
He said the most recent complaint was triggered
by a "vast quantity" of leaves and a limb that fell
from a neighbor's tree. Harris said he wanted the
neighbor to see it and remove the debris, so he left
it on the ground.
Sylvia Harris said she is unsure of what is cre-
ating the violation.
"The nuisance is the debris stacked up all over
the property that creates a haven for rodents, and
they have an environment where mosquitoes can
breed." Wunderlich replied. "It wasn't the limb and
leaves. They made it look neater but it hasn't solved
the problem."
"Part of solving these problems is understanding
what the codes are, what the city wants done and what
is legal on a residential piece of property," Stealey
noted. "Perhaps you're trying to do things there that
just don't fit. No one's criticizing you or trying to keep
you from what you're entitled to do on your own piece
of property, as long as it fits the code."
The board also heard testimony from Irene
Flinn, a neighbor of the Harrises. She introduced
letters written to city officials and board members
and photos of the Harris property.
"In 1996 and 1997, we called the code enforce-
ment officer 15 to 18 times and nothing was done,"
Flinn said. "We met with the mayor and the code en-
forcement officer in 1996 and he said he'd speak to

George about mowing the grass."
In 1994, there were 37 tires in the back yard, 13
toilets in the front yard, as well as appliances, she
said.
"We feel like the bad guys, because in order to
get anything done we have to call and make a com-
plaint," Flinn told the board. "We don't want to do
this. We don't want to fight with our neighbors, but
we're very upset that we have to keep coming back.
We need relief. This has gone on for too long."
Attorney Alan Prather, representing the city
attorney's office, said the photos from 1996 and
1997 can be used to show an ongoing situation but
do not prove what's there today.
"Under the state statute and your'ordinance,
strict rules of evidence do not apply," Prather ex-
plained. "The board can consider anything that is
relevant and material to the issue before it. Anything
that the witness is testifying to today and the photo-
graphs of the existing violation may be taken as rep-
resenting the violation in effect."
Stealey said he would like the city to do a thor-
ough inspection of the property and point out all vio-
lations to the Harrises.
"One thing I would hate to have happen is if they
get an understanding of the violations and fix them
and there are other-violations and you get another
complaint," he said. "We'll be right back in this fix
again."
Prather said that under the statute, the board is
prohibited from directing the code enforcement of-
ficer to find violations. However, the code enforce-
ment officer is not restricted to citing only the vio-
lations listed in a complaint.
Sylvia Harris said a lot of Flinn's complaints are
valid, but she should have gotten a copy of the city
codes with the violations highlighted and been in-
formed prior to the property's inspection.
"I'm sorry that the house isn't painted and I
don't have fancy landscaping, but I can't afford it,"


she said. "It's not very pretty and I'm sorry about
that, but being on a corner does make you very vis-
ible. I'm willing to correct these things given a pe-
riod of time."
"We all have different lifestyles and it would be
a very dull place if we were all the same," Stealey
noted. "But we all have to live by the codes. The
codes don't tell us how pretty our house has to be or
how many bushes we have to have. They tell us we
can't create nuisances."
Prather told the board that if it finds the Harrises
in violation, it can set a time period for them to cor-
rect the violation, then set a fine to be imposed if the
violation is not corrected.
Stealey asked about the fine for a repeat viola-
tion. According to the code, a repeat violator can be
fined double the amount of the previous fine.
"You can find a repeat violation but it may be
predicated only upon an actual finding of a viola-
tion," Prather responded. "Apparently previous vio-
lations are in 1992 and 1994. You may use those but
the lapse in time between 1994 and 1998 is signifi-
cant. I would advise that it wouldn't be appropriate."
Board member Joan Perry said she has a prob-
lem with people who come back before the board for
the same violation and said the fine should be sig-
nificant if the violation is not corrected.
"I feel that strongly also," Bracken said. "It ap-
pears that there's a state of mind that's been resis-
tant to the spirit of the code. There seems to be a
willingness to use the revolving door process to get
away with what they want to do anyway."
Board member Richard Maher agreed with Perry
and Bracken.
"Having been through this for the third time, I'd
like to see a resolution," board member Alfred
Howblitzel noted. "A slap on the wrist won't do it."
Board member Don Schroder suggested May 18
as the deadline for compliance, because the board's
next meeting is scheduled for. May. 22.

Heritage Fest's Grand Parade had it all


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Correspondent
Dressed up, jazzed up marching bands. Giant glit-
tering floats with animated parts, live and smiling chil-
dren, teens, adults and seniors, and piped-out or tuned-
in foot-stomping musical favorites. Conquistadors and
Privateers, cloggers, cheerleaders, Twirlers and
Shriners, deputies and mayors, those world-famous
east Bradenton Little League champions and a 10-float
procession of glory-singing and -swinging families
from Bradenton's Christian Retreat.
Top-prize entries from the annual Children's Pa-,
rade, just-elected De Soto royalty and visiting royalty
from across the Skyway, across the state and down
from the St. Paul, Minn., Winter Carnival.
And through it all, sparkling twisting beads and
more beads, the parade tradition, tossed in every size
and color by every size of parade participant to the
grasping hands of thousands of grand finale spectators
of all ages.
And still it's hard to put all 90 straight minutes of
Bradenton's April 25th Heritage Festival Grand Parade
into words.
If it's starting to feel like you had to be there, next
year you really ought to be there. This was the 50th
consecutive celebration lined up to close out the month-
long Heritage Festival, formerly the Hernando De Soto
fest. And the children, adults and seniors in our party
are still bubbling from the fun.
We opted to watch from the parade's starting point
at the Manatee High School football stadium. Admis-
sion included a 90-minute pre-parade show featuring
the final '98 battle between the De Soto Conquistadors

and our very own Anna Maria Island Privateers, and
back-to-back cheerleading exhibitions by all Manatee
County's high school squads.
The show's own grand finale which had the 4-


year-olds in our group thinking the parade had passed
by sported an awesome stadium entrance by the
Manatee High School Hurricanes Marching Band and
a its Sugar Canes.
The dancin' Canes show was sweetened by the
decade-by-decade high kicks of Lady Canes from all
50 years of their history with accompanying period
music by the hot band. This show, too, had a grand fi-
nale, with the '97-98 state-finalist Canes strutting their
stuff with ladies of other generations.
The playing field was a wave of red, white and
blue, with the setting sunlight of an absolutely perfect
evening bouncing off all those tubas and trumpets.
The spectators in those south-side bleachers rose
and cheered in unison. Native or transplant, the rush of
Manatee County pride vibrated all the way to the old
gymnasium. And still the parade hadn't begun.
The stadium event offered a smoke-free, alcohol-
free environment and the kind of all-generation family
event that can't be beat.
And at 9:30, when the last of the more than 100
parade entries rolled by (and they were still to proceed
through the streets of downtown Bradenton), our favor-
ite pirates, those huggy-bear Privateers, brought up the
rear in their historic ship.
There, too, was another blast from the past the
mateys haven't aged a bit since their ship was blown
ashore to Cortez from Holmes Beach.
The Privateers drink no bitter grog, however. And
bringing up the rear this year included a special on-board
guest, the lovely Deanna Rollyson, Ms. Florida 1997.
"No wench is she," cried out Privateer President Big
John Swager, off to see the world of Ninth Avenue West.

GREAT EXPECTATIONS
That is what we had for some past events and is
surely what we will have for the biggest event of the
year getting final approval for the grant application
by the Manatee County Commission.
I figure that we find what we look for, especially
if we work some to make it happen. That was true of
the 16th Annual Commercial Fishing Festival in Feb-
ruary. The weather was great; the crowds of people
were happy, except for one old grouch or two; and the
vendors were eager to please.
On a personal note I survived in spite of my bro-
ken arm. I did not bake a cake, or wash a strawberry but
'some terrific angels did. Atlas Kight and Sylvia Th-


ompson baked and baked. Sylvia and the Kromerys
(Herb and Bessie) washed the berries three times. A
multitude turned out to cut berries. This has become
one of our most treasured social events, and plans are
underway for next year.
The Natives and More Picnic in March (all are
invited) was better than GREAT, cause we did have
"cousins by the dozens." It is something to see the
faces when people who have not seen each other in
48 years meet and the years fade away and you are
back home again.
The happiest trio was the John and Vera Fulford
girls, Johnny Vee, Mona Marie and Shirley Lee.
Cousin Barb Guthrie Holmes enjoyed seeing all of us
again, including Cousin Mabel Adams Hipp from
Sarasota. Those who traveled the most miles to get here
were Lem and Frances Pringle from New York.
Chester, as we called him, compared health notes with
Walter "Bub" Bell.
In 1942 there were 10 Bradenton High School
graduates from Cortez. I made the third who attended
the picnic. The big thrill was when Miss Betty MacColl
was welcomed by the students she taught at the Cortez
School in 1940. The mullet fried by Blue Fulford and


his son, Larry, were just the way we like them. Two
pots of grits were served along with much other good
cooking, so we found what we expected.
By the way, the movie filmed in part in Cortez,
"Great Expectations," is now at the cut-price theater so
I will see it again. In fact I will even buy a copy of the
video so my "greats" can see Cortez "painted green".
Some time maybe all the time it takes is
some "PP," or People Power, to get what you expect.
That's what we need now. We want YOU to help us
with letters of support for the grant application being
written to buy the old Cortez schoolhouse.
Letters should be addressed to Ms. Anne Perry,
Executive Director, Florida Communities Trust, 2555
Shumard-Oak Blvd., Room 310, Tallahassee, Fl
32399-2100. Please take time to write her, or to Ms.
Jaime Doubek, Sarasota Bay National Estuary Pro-
gram, 5333 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, Fl 34234.
Let's see when we can schedule the Big Celebra-
tion Party. Yes, we will and you will be the first to
know. Let's make it happen at least we will have a
good time trying.

Attorney: city can proceed with lien on house


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The city can proceed with a lien on the property of
Martin W. Annis at 403 39th Street, attorney Alan
Prather told the code enforcement board last week.
Last month the board fined Annis $500 for a past
violation and added $50 per day as long as the viola-
tion continues. The $50 per day fine started April 3.
The case concerns unpermitted construction at the
residence. Violations include the lack of a fire separa-
tion wall and unpermitted wiring on the ground floor.
Annis was brought before the board in January 1997.
The board found Annis in violation and gave him 30
days from the day of inspection to correct violations.
The case was not followed up because of personnel
changes, said Code Enforcement Officer Walter
Wunderlich. He said that in October Annis sent the city a
letter stating he would have the work done by Jan. 1, 1998.
Wunderlich said he was hired in December and

In the meantime, how about some involvement in
the lives of kids? The Community Center needs some-
body who knows how to "drag," "click," and "down-
load" to evaluate a bunch of computers and set up a real
Study Center. We hope to provide opportunities during
the summer program. And if you have a working model
we will accept it and give a certificate-of contribution.
I am even asking if you have a pinball machine you are
tired of. The kids would enjoy that, too.
Also needed is a volunteer who can fix anything, like
install a dishwasher, put on a new lock and paint cabinet
doors. The kids will help you and you will be the winner.
Remember, 100 years from now it will not mat-
ter what your bank account was, the sort of house
you lived in, or kind of car you drove, but the world
may be different because you were important in the
life of a child.
The Center will have 50-75 children this summer.

ing Village, open from 3:30-6:30 p.m. Monday-Friday.

called Annis in February. He said Annis told him the
work was not completed and he asked to meet with
Annis. Wunderlich said he tried several times to set up
a meeting but got no response.
Wunderlich told the board that Building Inspector
Bill Saunders met with Annis on April 21 and the
building is still not in compliance.
"Mr. Annis has been asked previously to produce
a set of plans but he has not," Wunderlich said. "He is
aware that he is not in compliance."
"This is an obvious case of refusal to comply
with the law," Code Enforcement Board Chairman
Chuck Stealey said. "The case has been going on for
more than a year. There was an initial fine and a $50
fine has been on-going since April 3. Do we just let
the clock run?"
Prather, representing the city attorney's office, said
the city has the authority to proceed with collection or
enforcement of a lien.


"The board doesn't have to deal with that," Prather
noted. "If and when compliance occurs, the board has
the authority to satisfy the lien if payment is made. It
also has the authority to adjust the lien amount if evi-
dence indicates a need for that."
Prather said it appears that the order is now effec-
tive and it is up to the city to instruct the city attorney
to proceed with foreclosure.
"As of today the city may record the order in the
public records of Manatee County, a lien would at-
tach to the property and the fine would be identified
on the lien and it's running," Prather continued. "In
order to enforce the lien, the city has to file a law-
suit and go through the circuit court to actually fore-
close on the property. The property is then sold and
comes into compliance."
However, the issue of homestead on residential
property could change the circumstances, Prather
added.

Hello and goodbye
This time of year we say goodbye too often, to
friends and family we endear with the term "snow-
birds." Winter-only residents.
They start appearing in October and the flock be-
gins to dissipate around Easter.
There is no question they provide a boost to our
economy. Restaurants and retail stores see a dramatic
increase as a result. Even mainstays such as the hard-
ware store, dry cleaner and veterinarian have increased
business in the winter.
Well, breathe a sigh of relief and prepare for the
new onslaught. We hear more and more that those win-
ter rental units are also booked in May and for summer.
It's out with the old and in with the new ... new visi-
tors to the historical museum, the beaches, renting
bikes, dining out and enjoying all the other amenities
of the Island.
And some of our summer visitors are frequent visi-
tors. Many are property owners from Manatee County
and other Florida communities, taking advantage of
"down time" in their units. Eventually they'll be per-
manent residents, but in the meantime they ease into
Island living, practicing our laid-back style.
In another island's language there is a term for
hello and goodbye, both a salutation and a farewell ...
Aloha.

Who's listening
Do you ever get the impression no one's listening?
You talk, talk, talk and you get nowhere.
We ran stories for weeks and weeks that building
departments on the Island, one by one, were bringing
their permit fees into alignment with the county and
other municipalities. The new fees represented large
increases here due to a lack of intermittent fee reviews
over a number of years.
The next thing you know, here comes a builder to
apply for a project and he's complaining that fees prohibit
him from proceeding with his plans. "Too expensive."

Who's watching
We've watched the Bradenton Beach Marina grow
in leaps and bounds during the past few years. Some of
the growth was in a halting fashion, fraught with a law-
suit and a state fine for improprieties.
The facility that originally was promised as a place
for mainly transient boaters to get a beer and a sand-
wich in light of state prohibitions was moved to
the former dockmaster's office and reopened as a full-
fledged restaurant. Never mind past promises it
wouldn't generate more street traffic.
The restaurant has another addition, a new tiki-hut

billed as a place for "barefoot waterside dining."
And there's live entertainment. Lots of lighted
signs too. More seating along the bayfront.
So what, you say?
Well, commissioners in Bradenton Beach placed a
batch of stipulations on the first operation, things like


no lighted signs, no live entertainment and restricted
the hours of operation. None of those stipulations have
been applied to the new operation.
"Who's watching the store?" so to speak?
And what will come next a triple-decker dining
room in the boat storage shed?


Better yielding needed
The need for better or larger signage approaching
the traffic circle at Bridge Street and Gulf Drive in
Bradenton Beach is critical. Almost every time I was
on the circle turning into or out of Bridge Street in the
past four months, drivers going both north and south on
Gulf Drive would barrel right in front of me, com-
pletely ignoring or not seeing the "Yield" and other
directional signage.
Drivers coming out of Bridge Street especially have
to gamble that northbound traffic will see and obey the
"Yield" sign at their side once the first vehicle is actually
on the circle. Timid drivers who sit and wait for the rare
large gap only encourage the illusion that Gulf Drive has
full right of way, which it clearly does not.
Please, Bradenton Beach, the improvements are
great, but let's beef up the enforcement measures.
Ted Reich, Cortez and Port Byron, N. Y.
Acquisition a must
To the Manatee County Commission and The Is-
lander Bystander:
I think public acquisition of the Sailor property in
Cortez is a must.
The old schoolhouse what a treasure. The
grounds and the Sailors house what a wonderful
place for the public to gather in a town with such a great
sense of community.
Kathryn Yearwood, Holmes Beach

'Magic to do'
The Manatee County Cultural Alliance wants to
thank, first, the community for responding so enthu-
siastically and, second, all who believed in and sup-
ported the vision of our "Artsfest '98: A Carnival of
Culture" in downtown Bradenton March 28 and 29.
By their generous donations and support, they
made possible, the showcasing of so many wonderful


cultural organizations and presentations by talented
citizens of all ages and from all walks of life.
We thank The Islander Bystander for its publicity.
In addition to creating a fun event, we wanted to
show that the arts and culture are alive and well in
Manatee County and can be the core for creating a
more vibrant community. Arts and cultural groups,
as well as individuals, participated in interactive
ways to make the magic really happen. They per-
formed, sculpted, danced, painted, demonstrated,
displayed, shared and talked. People, especially
families, came by the thousands and felt this magic.
We hope sprinkles of cultural magic will be re-ap-
pearing during the year as seeds for growing a vibrant
downtown. Next year, for "Artsfest '99," there will be a
newly landscaped, spectacular waterfront in addition to
the charming, tree-lined Old Main Street as our diverse
community grows together. The excitement builds. Come
join us. We have magic to do!

THOSE WERE THE IAYS
Part 9, The Secret Life of Marion Colman
by June Alder


Marion Colman braved the big city of Boston in dogged pursuit of knowledge in
the fields of music and religious education.


BRAVING THE PERILS

OF BOSTON


Marion Colman, granddaughter of
Anna Maria Island pioneer George E.
Bean, was a woman with great ambi-
tions to be a recognized author of
religious writings, a composer of Chris-
tian music and an educator.
She had to overcome many ob-
stacles to reach her goals. Despite their
limited means, her parents managed to
send her to the Florida State teachers
college. But after graduation in the war
year of 1918 she nearly died of influ-
enza while working in a Connecticut
munitions plant
Her first experiences teaching in an
elementary school were a disappoint-
ment to her. She needed further train-
ing, she realized, and to pay her way
she sought work in Boston.

By Marion Colman
In the spring of 1922, soon after my
25th birthday, I packed my bags and left
South Coventry for Boston. I was fortu-
nate to get ajob in the offices of Charles
Scribner's Sons.
It was exciting to be working for
this distinguishedpublishing firm spe-
cializing in theological and philosophi-
cal works. It published the works of the
most eminent writers of the time such as
Henry James, Robert Louis Stevensoh,
Rudyard Kipling and John Galsworthy.
I got along fairly well but was not
particularly successful, as the job re-
quired dictation and I didn't know
shorthand. But what cut my career at
Scribner's short was the measles. For
some reason I had not suffered from the
usual childhood diseases when I was
child. But I managed to get them at the
most inopportune times when I was an
adult.
My mother came up to Boston to
take care of me and we went home as
soon as I was able to travel.
When I was better I returned to the
Boston area and weit to Brookline to
work in a large Congregational Church.
My job entailed being office secretary
and director of religious education for a


large after-school program.
It was during this time that I wrote
some lessons which were later pub-
lished by Scribner's. It was called
"Rules of Life for Boys and Girls."
Though the book was not a great finan-
cial success it added to my hoped-for
prestige as a religious writer.
I lived in a house in downtown
Brookline that was operated as a home
for working women and older girls. The
place was within walking distance of
the church and I usually walked back
and forth to work unless it was raining
or I wasn't feeling up to par.
While employed at this church I
had the opportunity to go to North
Carolina to attend a Christian Ashram.
This was a religious retreat patterned
after the Hindu way of teaching spiri-
tual subjects. The retreat was led by the
eminent Christian teacher Dr. E.
Stanley Jones, who had been a mission-
ary to India for a number of years.
We called him Brother Stanley,
called one other Brother and Sister and
took part in useful activities and inspir-
ing meetings. Later, when I lived on
Anna Maria Island I went to similar
events in Ocala, Bradenton and Miami.
I continued to write hymns. As I
frequently attended Boston's famous
Park Street Church, I had the temerity
to show one of my hymns to the organ-
ist there. He didn't use it as a special
number for the choir but played the tune
as a postlude. I was quite thrilled.
My intention all along was to enter
graduate school at Boston University.
When at last I enrolled there I had the
good fortune to study the fine arts and
religious education under H. Augustine
Smith, a professor my aunt had known
at the University of Chicago. Two years
later I had earned the Master of Arts and
Master of Religious Education degrees
and was eager to put them to use.

What's Lurking In

Your Carpet?
Have you ever thought about the conditions your carpet is sub-
jected to? Your carpet acts like a sink. It collects every spilled ma-
terial, airborne contaminant and tracked soiling that enters your
home or business. Your carpet is designed to hide soiling. By the
time a carpet "looks" dirty, it can have a great deal of contamina-
tion collected in it.
Quite simply, if your carpet acts like a sink, then it filters and col-
lects sources of soil, bacteria, allergens and pollutants from the in-
door environment. These contaminants are part of what makes
your carpet "ugly out" before it wears out. This "collection" and "fil-
tering" process allows carpet to trap contaminants within. And, like
any filter, your carpet needs to be periodically cleaned out.

Chief demonstrates defibrillators


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Anna Maria Fire Chief Andy Price recently dem-
onstrated the district's automatic external defibrillators
at a meeting of Save Anna Maria.
AEDs are used on patients suffering from cardiac
arrest and deliver an electric shock to restore the heart's
rhythm, Price said.
"They've been programmed to detect the heart
rhythms that are shockable," Price explained. "The
only time it's able to be converted back into a regular
heartbeat is when it's in fibrillation or when it's quiv-
ering. This shocks the heart with a voltage that wakes
it up and tells it it's time to beat right."
Some models have a screen that shows the heart's
rhythm. Others show the rhythm on a tape that reads out.
The machine analyzes the patient's heart rhythm and tells
the operator if and when to administer the shock.
"The great thing is that anyone can use the AED,"
Prince said. "This past year the State of Florida enacted
legislation that makes it legal for anyone whose been
trained to operate one. We teach it in our CPR (cardiop-
ulmonary resuscitation) classes."
The combined Anna Maria and West Side Fire Dis-
tricts have eleven AEDs in staff vehicles and on fire
trucks..They have used the AEDs four times with one
save. The Bradenton Fire Department, which has used
AEDs since 1993, has made 30 saves.
"The American Heart Association advocates the use
of AEDs because they save lives, Price noted. "The
quicker you can get defibrillation to a person in cardiac ar-
rest, the better chance you have of saving them. Unless
you have something like this within four to six minutes of
cardiac arrest, your chances (of survival) plummet."
AEDs are the third link in the chain of survival,
said fire district Captain Dennis Dotson. The others are
early access and early CPR.
"How many shocks can an operator give before
giving up on the patient?" SAM President Joy
Courtney asked.
"Until there's nothing else you can do for the pa-
tient," Price replied. "It could be as many as eight to 10
times in 15 minutes. It will not allow you to adminis-
ter a shock unless it is necessary. With advanced life
support procedures you would also use medications.
"You still need to complete the CPR process, if it's
indicated," Dotson added.
"What do you do if the person has a DNR (do not

resuscitate) order," Joan Perry asked.
That is usually posted in the patient's residence or
the patient wears a medic alert bracelet containing the
information, Price said.
"The DNR must be properly posted and executed,"
he noted. "If you have an order that's not properly ex-
ecuted, we will not stop. We're legally bound to do the
procedures we're taught to do. The lay person is not
held to the same standard."
The family usually knows, Dotson added.
"We usually find the order attached to the wall near
the patient or the patient has a bracelet," he said.
The district has two models of AEDs, Price said.
In the more advanced model, a module can be added
that performs an electrocardiogram, and it can print out
information for paramedics to review when they arrive
on scene. A modem is also built into the machine en-
abling the operator to send patient information to a
medical control computer for the district's medical di-
rector to review.


Last Mote

shark tourney

June 11-14
The last shark catch-and-release fishing
tournament sponsored by Mote Marine Labo-
ratory will be held June 11-14.
"The success of the tournament over the
last 10 years has led to its own demise," said
Dr. Bob Hueter, director of the Center for
Shark Research at Mote. "With the help of the
more than 1,000 fishers who've assisted us
over the years, we have met all of the scientific
objectives of the original tournament design.
The Gulf Coast Shark Census Tournament
is the world's only 100 percent catch-and-re-
lease tournament. It has provided information
for shark fishery management of the declining
shark populations, increased public awareness
about sharks as a resource, eliminated the
catch-and-kill design of similar tournaments
and promoted conservation while also provid-
ing recreation and scientific information,
Hueter said.
Last year, 71 anglers caught and released
404 sharks in nine species. Of those sharks one
was a 10-foot hammerhead caught in lower
Tampa Bay and another, a small black tip
caught in Terra Ceia Bay, had been tagged
earlier in the year.
In all, more than 600 sharks have been
tagged by fishers participating in the tourna-
ments over the years.
A registration fee of $25 per person is re-
quired by June 8 for those interested in partici-
pating in the tournament this year. The fee
goes up to $35 after June 8. For information,
call Mote at 388-4441.



Residents asked to claim
recovered bicycles
Anna Maria officials are asking residents to
claim several bicycles that have been found or re-
covered by Manatee County sheriff's deputies.
Come to city hall to identify and claim your bicycle.
Unclaimed bicycles will be given to the Anna Maria

Lifeguard school starts in May


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
So there sits the lifeguard, looking good and
bossing everyone around. Pretty cushy, huh?
It's a great job, but what it takes to get there
isn't all that easy. Just ask Chantarat Grace, who
puts lifeguards through the hoops on their way to
that lofty throne. Those who make it, that is.
Grace is head of the American Red Cross train-
ing school for Manatee County, which is open for
applicants for awhile yet, through most of May at
G.T. Bray Aquatic Center, 5502 33rd Ave. Dr. W.,
Bradenton.
Minimum age for trainees is 15, with no upper
limit. "We always have seniors in the course, and
one of our instructor trainers is 78."
Grace has been at this avocation for 25 years,
ever since she became a lifeguard in high school in
Bangkok, Thailand. She came to the U.S. for a uni-
versity education, found Michigan too cold and
Hawaii just right. She landed on the Gulf Coast
when her husband retired here from the Army.
The wringer she puts budding lifeguards through
challenges their bodies,.minds and dedication.
Their introduction is an indication of what is to
come 500 yards of nonstop swimming. They
must swim free style for 100 yards, side stroke for
100, breast stroke for 100 more and then a final 200
in any combination. Then they have to retrieve a
10-pound brick from the deep end of the pool, and
tread water without hands for two minutes.
That's the first day, May 7. The rest of the


schedule:
May 11, how to keep sharp surveillance of a pool or
park, such as a lake or water theme park.
May 12, prevention and rescue skills, with "passive
"active" victims, using the "backboard" for persons wit
nal injuries.
May 13, 14 and 18, CPR course for professional res
May 19 and 20, rescue skills, including retrieving a


from the bottom of the pool, the handling of active
P" and passive people in the water, and developing ex-
pertise in using equipment. "No one should try to
-rescue someone without equipment, said Grace.
May 21, first aid, with emphasis on injuries that
may occur in water.
s May 25, management of spinal injuries, how to
get the backboard where it should be and the victim
strapped to it and out of deep or shallow water.
May 26, what to do after the excitement of the
emergency, keeping the victim under observation
until medical help arrives, keeping the crowd out of
it, and.so on. And how to make meticulous records
and reports.
May 27, a recapitulation of everything that has
gone before, and more on written reports.
People who complete the course are certified as
lifeguards for three years, same as first aid certification.
CPR certification must be renewed every year.
Cost of the course, including texts, is $90, plus
$25 pool fee for the Bray center. Pre-registration is
required, with further information available at 792-
8686.
There are other Red Cross courses that Grace
recommends very highly.

Players' 'Biography'
runs May 8-17
The Island Players community theater will present
S.N. Behrman's "Biography" as the final production of
the 1997-98 season.
Directed by experienced professional and Island
resident Phyllis Elfenbein, "Biography" will open at
the Players Theatre in Anna Maria City at 8 p.m. Fri-
day, May 8. Nighttime performances will be offered
through May 17 except for Sunday matinees at 2 p.m.
May 10 and May 17. There will be-no show Monday,
May 11. The theater box office is open weekdays from
9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and one hour before each staging. Tick-
ets are $12 per person.
"What happens when the private lives of public
people are exposed in print?" asks Elfenbein.
"Sounds like today's headlines? But no, it's 1932
and this 'Biography' still packs a punch."
Marion, a well-known portrait artist, has lived an
unconventional, even flamboyant, life. She is asked by
a young man to write her memoirs as a serial in his
magazine. She accepts, not outlining the consequences.
News of Marion's written word reaches an old
beau with political ambitions and his father-in-law-to-
be, a wealthy and powerful man who is also the cam-
paign backer. Opposition to the publication mounts,
placing Marion between conflicting parties.
The cast includes some Players' favorites. David
B. Haynes takes the role of Richard Kurt with Alice
Doeden as Minnie. Gabe Simches transforms into
Melchior Feydak and Marion Froude is portrayed by
Susan Vaughn.
The part of Leander "Bunny" Nolan will be played
by Mark Chelstrate, Dick Lawall plays Orrin Kinnicott
and Robin Rhodes takes on the role of Slade Kinnicott.
Ruth Stevens is stage manager. Set design is by
John Flannery, lighting design by Steve Henderson.
Don Bailey is costume designer.
For more information, call the Players box office
at 778-5755.

League's high school
exhibit opens Friday
The Anna Maria Island Art League's fourth an-
nual Manatee High School Exhibit featuring student
works in all media will be celebrated with an open-
ing reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, May 1, at the
League gallery, 5312 Holmes Blvd., Holmes Beach.
There is no charge and the public of all ages is wel-
come.
Established with the cooperation of Island artists
and Manatee High art teachers Rob Reiber and
Kathy Linn, this annual display offers students a
chance to be recognized for their individual talents
and creativity, and provides an opportunity to en-
courage young artists to pursue a multitude of career
paths via their art talent and training.
"I can't tell my students often enough," says
Reiber, "of all the scholarship opportunities and career
options there are related to the technology and creation
of art in its many forms."
His expertise, winning smile and upbeat attitude
have been a draw to Island and county adolescents for
many years.
"Why," he says, "you can even be an art teacher!"
Reiber says he'd love to see the Island artist and
professional community show its support of these art
department teens by stopping in at the reception, at
which many of the students will be present, or at
least by viewing their works between May 1 and
May 30.

at Island library
Digital art and miniature watercolors will dress up
the Island Branch Library, 5701 Marina Drive, Holmes
Beach, during the month of May.
New Jersey native and 19-year Islander Barbara
Singer will display her unique, computer-inspired
pieces. The award-winning artist is well known in the
area as both a teacher and an active contributor and
exhibitor for several organizations, including the Art-
ists Guild of Anna Maria Island and the Longboat Key
Art Center.
Artist Kim Attwooll, who "retired" from Long Is-
land, New York, to her full-time Bradenton studio, will
present a selection of "little" watercolors. Attwooll
studied at Britain's Wallasey College of Art and re-
turned to the states to teach stained glass and batik
while also designing book covers, posters and adver-
tisements.
Co-operator, as well, of a Long Island boatyard
with her English husband Jim, Attwooll eventually
focused on small watercolor paintings as the creative
diversion from her busy schedule. These miniatures
have found their place as greeting cards in galleries and
museum gift shops.

The Island Poet
We're a friendly group as you must know,
Always the first to say hello,
Never too busy to stop and chat,
And we'll play cards at the drop of a hat,
Know all the best restaurants and all the good
shows,
And if its golf you want, better be on your
toes.
You may talk about us and you'll be forgiven,
'Cause this, my friend, is Island living.

An affair to

really remember
To say it was an exciting evening doesn't do it
justice. The long-awaited annual auction to benefit
the Anna Maria Island Community Center came and
went last week to absolutely rave reviews.
Most certainly "An Affaire to Remember," as it
is titled, was reincarnated from times when the
theme varied from country to Mardis Gras.
It's reincarnator, Trudy Moon, has taken the
event from blue jeans and barbecue five years ago
to diamonds, champagne, classical music and
Chateaubriand.
And it's only their third year.
Moon and her committee started planning the
event last September and their success is recorded
as the best ever more than $96,000 in 19'98 -
topping their previous year by $30,000 and nearly
triple 1996's total proceeds of $37,000.
Look at it this way. In 1990 the auction was her-
alded as a great success, bringing in $15,3001.
We've come a long way!
Thank goodness Moon has committed to. chair
the event through the year 2000. If it doesn't result
in committing her to the funny farm first, we'll take
as many years as she can give in the new millennium.
For a little more perspective, consider that when
Executive Director Pierrette Kelly first started at the
Center in 1989, she says the annual budget was
$100,000 and the Center was $20,000 in debt. This
year's budget exceeds $400,000 and believe me
when I say, she still sweats every dime of it. And
every contribution is intensely appreciated.
But the real story is the excitement of the night
- the bidding! Silent and live auction items this
year went through the roof never mind value,
because all the money goes to the Center.
Everything's donated, and everything is profit. "An-
gels," so aptly listed in the program book, make


contributions to defray expenses for the event.
So many items, so little time! St. Bernard's
"ballroom" was lined on two walls and the stage
with silent auction items. Everything from the
kitchen sink (literally) to a Hammond organ, Health
Rider, Beanie babies, antiques, area rugs, jewelry,
pottery, boat storage, lawn care, plastic eye surgery,
Devil Ray tickets, rounds of golf, mayor or fire
chief for a day, ballet and theater tickets and more.
There were wine and dine packages, getaways
and makeovers. There was ample opportunity to
invest in art works, from original oils to valued seri-
graphs, prints and etchings. As a matter of fact, I
ended up with a Rob Reiber print of a pelican the
result of a bid on the wrong sheet. Oops. I thought
I was bidding on a matted print of Anna Maria Is-
land.
Meanwhile, I was also the successful bidder on
a small 8-by-10-inch oil of a bather on the beach by
Cheryl Moody, titled "Studies in American Real-
ism." However, the bathing beauty ended up among
someone else's winnings. It's still missing and I'm
just a little sad that it went to the wrong home I
had a perfect spot in mind for it. And I'm more than
willing to trade "Pelican" for "Realism." If you
have a very small oil painting of a voluptuous
woman in a swimsuit, just give me a call at the of-
fice, 778-7978.
I also bid successfully during the live auction
for Woody Candish's steel sculpture which, Center
staff graciously delivered to my office. It may have
to go home though,.since too many people ask what
it is. Apparently, "art" is not an appropriate re-
sponse.
Gary Wooten, auction committee member in
charge of decorations, was winner of the successful
raffle for "Pick of the Auction." His ticket was
among the sell-out of 100 tickets at $25 each, and
his selection from all the live auction items was the
Orlando Magic package.
It includes four passes to Walt Disney World, a
V.I.P. dinner for four at All-Star Cafe including two
denim jackets and two hats for souvenirs, cocktails
at Church Street Station, gift certificates to the
House of Blues and more souvenir shirts and hats.
Following an exhausting two to three weeks of auc-
tion prep and capping a busy season as manager of
the Sandbar restaurant, we know Wooten will enjoy


TV winner
Greg Kuypers of Bradenton and his son Brandon
came out to the Anna Maria Island Community
Center last week to pick up the 32-inch ProScan
television he won through the Center's auction
raffle. Kuypers bought one $10 ticket at the Rod and
Reel Pier. The Islander Bystander and Air & Energy
sponsored the TV raffle, which earned $2,440 of the
auction's grand proceeds of $96,000. Islander

Mike Carter's company boat successfully bid by
a staunch Center supporter, a member of Carter's
own staff, George O'Connor. Or was it twin brother
Billy? Could it have been the missing twin, sepa-
rated at birth, Eric Bergen?
A catered dinner for eight by Beach Bistro and
a limousine ride courtesy of Paul Sharff went for a
whopping $1,200, followed in the bidding wars by
a custom home rendering by architect Gene Aubry
packaged with estate planning by attorney John
Pettigrew for $1,100.
Nancy Marcotte was the lucky Bistro bidder,
saying, "My friends wanted me to have a party and
this would be the best way to do it."
A repeat prize from last year, a trolley tour do-
nated by Trolley Systems of America and The Is-
lander Bystander, including a case of champagne
from the newspaper and a photo published to com-
memorate the event went for $1,000 to Dr. Andre
Renard and wife/Holmes Beach mayor Carol
Whitmore also a repeat. The committee "sweet-
ened" the package with donations including a gour-
met chocolate cake from Frankie Hall, two hours of
music and serenading by Howie Banfield and bal-
loons from the Big Party Store.
A 1985 Ford Tempo donated by Bob Boast
Dodge-Volkswagen, including a few car washes and
lubes, a certificate for body work and $50 credit at
Jessie's Island Store to gas it up, went for $1,500 to
Kathy MacKenzie.
You can see, with many more items too numer-
ous to mention, there was a lot of money going into
the kitty. And with 408 patrons, all paying $50 for
the privilege of bidding and dining, the proceeds
mounted up rather nicely.
Add to all the terrific bidding the great enthusi-
asm of auctioneer Bobby Smith, a former Islander
now residing on the east coast of Florida. His trip
across the state this year was a race against the clock
more clock than he imagined. His wife gave birth
to their third baby, Reilly, the morning of the event
and he partnered her all the way through.
His enthusiasm carried right through the evening
with top bids on everything even to include a wal-
let found in the restroom by this newspaper's sports
writer, Kevin Cassidy. The wallet quickly sold, gold
cards and all, to high bidder Stewart Moon for $100,
and was immediately surrendered to its rightful
owner, Dr. Robert Monsour, who generously offered
a $100 reward. Quick thinking on Cassidy's part for
a quick $200 for the Center.
And what about that big 32-inch TV raffle spon-
sored by The Islander Bystander and Air & Energy?
Winner Greg Kuyper, owner of Kuyper Aluminum
of Bradenton, was drawn from 244 tickets, account-
ing for a $2,440 donation. Kuyper bought his win-
ning ticket at the Rod and Reel Pier, where they sold
a whopping 40 tickets. Kuyper said he's a loyal cus-
tomer at the pier and couldn't resist owner Rayma's
"strong-arm" sales tactics.
Did I mention the dinner? It was another winning
performance by Harry's Continental Kitchens with
delicious Chateaubriand, bearnaise sauce, coq au vin
and garlicky mashed potatoes highlighting the buffet.
The diamond raffle, a spectacular event new to
the benefit this year, involved the purchase of a glass
of premium champagne in an etched souvenir glass
for $20 during the reception. With the libation, came
an envelope containing either a $2,000 diamond gem
(Yeah!) or a cubic zirconia (boo). Only 150 tickets
were sold, all at the "Affaire."
Gemologist Tom Seguin and wife Donna of
Suncoast Gem Laboratories were on site to verify
each stone with the winner announced midway
through the live auction. The diamond giveaway was
underwritten by Anna Maria Commissioner Robert
McElheny and his employer Abraham Chevrolet.
The winner was Paul Kelly. And as we reported
last week, Paul bought five tickets for his wife, who
is incidentally executive director of the Center.
And before you even think of criticizing staff or
board members, committee members or volunteers
for winning prizes at the auction, remember most
of the patrons are board members, volunteers or
serve on a committee of some sorts. They are often
the biggest supporters.
Buy a ticket, win a prize no matter who you
are and keep in mind it's the Anna Maria Island
Community Center that is the real winner.
. I'm already looking for.ward.to next year .....

Big fourth inning lifts
Bob Boast over Tip
Bob Boast Dodge rode the complete-game pitch-
ing effort of Brian Faasse to take a 18-5 win over Tip
of the Island on Monday night at the Anna Maria Island
Community Center in Little League baseball action.
Faasse gave up four hits and struck out eight in his six
innings on the mound to get the win, while Peter Dowling
pitched into the fifth inning in taking the tough loss.
Bob Boast took a 2-0 lead in the top of the second
when Faasse reached first base on a hit-by-pitch by
Dowling. Faasse then moved to second on a passed ball
to set the stage for Gorden Tarbeck, who responded
with an RBI single to plate Faasse.
Tarbeck advanced to second on a walk to Brian
DeBellevue and moved to third on a passed ball. On the
next pitch, DeBellevue took off for second but, Tip catcher
Luther Sasser let him go and tossed the ball softly back to
Dowling on the mound. As soon as the ball left Sasser's
hand, Tarbeck bolted for home and slid in to beat the tag
and give Bob Boast Dodge a 2-0 lead.
The bottom of the second inning saw Tip cut the
Bob Boast lead in half when Sasser led off with a single
that he "golfed" into center field. Sasser then moved
-- from first to third on consecutive passed balls and

SPORTS, FROM PAGE 20

Schafer went far to his right to scoop the ball up, just
nipping Taylor at first. Dowling then followed walks
to Taylor Manning and Joey Mattay with a ground ball
to second. Mattay beat the throw to second and every-
one was safe, loading the bases.
That brought Sasser to the plate and he promptly
walked to force in a run and tie the score. Adam
Bouziane then hit a grounder to Dustin Cole, who
threw home to force out Manning with Dowling mov-
ing up on the play. Bouziane then drew the attention of
Faasse, giving Dowling the break he needed as he
bolted for home and siid in safe with a 3-2 Tip lead.
The fourth inning saw Bob Boast Dodge break the
game open as Michael Mijares led off with a walk and
scored all the way from first on a double by Cole, who
moved to third on the play at the plate, tying the score.
A walk to Derek Burger was followed by a strike
out by DeBellevue with Burger moving to second on
the pitch. That brought up Jessie Kane-Hartnet, who hit
a hard grounder between first and second base. First
baseman Manning made a diving stop and threw home
- while lying on his back but Cole just beat the tag,
giving Bob Boast Dodge the lead 4-3.
Torres then came through with a two-run double,
scoring Burger and Kane-Hartnet and bringing the score
to 6-3. With Schafer at bat, Torres took off for third and
slid in safely, but the ball skipped into left field and Torres
easily waltzed home, increasing Bob Boast Dodge's lead
to 7-3. Billy Malfese then reached on an error and after
moving to second on a passed ball, scored on a single by
Faasse to extend their lead to 8-3.
A walk to Mijares who was up for the second time
in the inning put runners on first and second. Another
passed ball had Faasse taking off for third, but again the
throw skipped past third, allowing Faasse to score be-
fore a Cole strike out finally ended the inning with Bob
Boast now comfortably in front 9-3.
Tip fought back to score two more runs in the bot-
tom of the fifth to cut the score to 9-5, but Bob Boast
scored nine runs in the top of the sixth to put the game
away for the final winning margin of 18-5.
Leading the way for Bob Boast at the plate were
Torres, who had two doubles and three RBIs, and Cole,


who had a double, triple and two RBIs. Kane-Hartnet
chipped in with three RBIs on the night while Tarbeck
had an RBI single to contribute to the win.
Manning paced Tip at bat with a 2-for-3 night while
Taylor and Sasser each managed a hit. In other action:

Haley's Motel 11, AMFD 5
Brandon Roberts came in and pitched 3 2/3 hit-less
innings in relief of starter Jordan Bowers to get the win.
Skyler Purcell led the way at the plate with a home run,
triple and three RBIs for a 3-for-4 night. Michael
Wallen had a single, Bowers added a double and Kyle
Schweitzer had a triple to contribute to the win.
Brett Milks, Michael Cramer and Katrina Lathrop
each had singles on the night to pace AMFD.

Kiwanis 8, Bob Boast Dodge 7
Bob Boast Dodge battled back from a three-run
deficit on a three-run, inside-the-park home run by
Mario Torres to tie the score at 7-7 in the bottom of the
sixth inning only to see Kiwanis take a one-run lead in
the top of the seventh.
Kiwanis scored the game winner when Bobby
Gibbons singled in Mike Wojculewski, who led off
the inning with a single, then watched as Sam Wolfe
held BBD scoreless in the bottom half of the inning,
striking out two batters and inducing one to ground
out to him on the mound.
- Besides the heroics of Gibbons, Wolfe and
Wojculewski, Kiwanis was led by Aaron Stark who went
3-for-4 on the night with a triple and two RBIs. Bob Boast
was led by Torres, who had three hits and four RBIs while
B.J. Keim and Jessie Kane-Hartnet each had a hit.

Haley's 8, Tip of the Island 4
Chris Nelson went 2-for-3 with three RBIs to lead
Haley's over Tip of the Island. Jordan Bowers got the
pitching win in relief of Bobby Cooper with three in-
nings of two-hit ball, while striking out three batters.
Supporting Nelson at bat were Tyler Krauss who went
3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored and Hunter
Green who had a double, single and scored two runs.

Silly Summer Tour news
I met up with brothers Mark and Matt Bowers and
Brett McIntosh for a round of golf on Sunday and it truly
was a different game from the front nine to the back. On
the front nine, Matt Bowers was low scorer with long tee
shots that left the rest of our foursome in awe.
On the back nine however, Matt didn't make an
appearance and I managed to card the low score on the
day just ahead of Mark, although he did manage to
atone for his troubles (reported in last week's column),
topping the closest-to-the-pin contest on the sixteenth
hole to win four skins.
It's still crowded out there though, as it took our
foursome more than five hours to play eighteen holes,
waiting five to ten minutes between every shot. I think
the way to go is to play after 2 p.m. when it's less
crowded and you also pay lower twilight rates.
That's it for this week. If you have sports news, call
me at 778-3153.

More farm-raised fish on the way


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
Last year Mote Marine Laboratory blew the doors
off the aquaculture industry by hatching, raising and
releasing snook into our local waters. Now a Fort
Pierce firm is hatching and raising, but not releasing,
dolphin. Coryphaena hippurus, not Flipper.
They're eating them instead.
American Aqua Resources has taken over the work
done by fish scientist Randy Hagood, who's been per-
fecting the dolphin process for the past eight years. At
this point Hagood says the process won't be ready to
start mass marketing of fish for another two years, but
he's confident the process will work.
The president of AAR, Wesley Harris, says he's
tasted some of the tank-raised dolphin and claims
they're terrific. On the other hand, what would you
expect him to say. According to the Miami Herald,
Harris cooked the fish in Cajun spices, so I'd say the
jury is still out on how good they taste. In my opinion,
Cajun seasoning can mask the fish flavor and make
anything taste, well, Cajun.
Hagood reports that tank-raised dolphin grow to
three to four pounds in about four months. That's what
is considered marketable size. By six months they're up
to 10 pounds and in two years, 25 pounds.
But there's no point in raising the fish that big, accord-
ing to Hagood, because as they approach 10 pounds they
become hard to handle and require much larger tanks.

Coryphaena hippurus, aka dolphin


So next time somebody offers you "chicken dol-
phin," you might ask whether it came out of the Gulf
or out of a tank on Florida's east coast.

Who're the cooks?
While working on an article about seafood re-
cently, I spoke with Karen Bell in Cortez about'what
kind of fish she sold to whom. And she had an inter-
esting observation.
Bell said she sells lots of fish to vacationers from
Europe, and it's interesting who buys what. For ex-
ample, German tourists tend to want fillets, she said.
On the other hand, Italians generally buy whole
fish. That's because they can use the head and bones
for a good chowder afterwards. Which tells me that if
I want a good fish chowder, it would be wise to order
it in an Italian, rather than a German restaurant.

Sailfish at Egmont
In case you missed it, the St. Petersburg Times re-
ports that an 85-pound sailfish was caught in the
Egmont ship channel recently. And the angler did it on
12-pound test line.
Lynn.Zirkle of St. Pete took a buddy kingfishing
in the channel using cigar minnows for bait. They
caught one king when they had another strike and the
fish began greyhounding across the water. And that's
when Zirkle realized this was no king, it was a sailfish.
It took 45 minutes to boat the fish.
Meanwhile, the Times reports, charter boat Capt.
Gene Struthers put a client on a 67-pound sailfish off
Anclote Key. Outdoor Writer Terry Tomalin says the

critters are a bit rare in this area, but they're showing
up more and more, especially during kingfish season.
He attributes the increase in sailfish locally to an
increasing number of anglers practicing catch and re-
lease. Too bad that wasn't the case with these fish.

Sierra Club decides
Long among the frontrunners in helping to pre-
serve and restore environmental conditions, the Sierra
Club has wandered into some strange territory lately,
but according to an announcement over the weekend,
they've decided to come home again.
A segment of the club's membership has pushed to
ask the government to limit immigration into the coun-
try, claiming that's the only way the environment can
be saved. As you can imagine, that position is very con-
troversial.
Well, the board of directors decided to send out a
ballot to all 550,000 Sierra Club members and.asked
them to vote for an official position. The results an-
nounced over the weekend were 39.9 percent in favor
of limiting immigration into the country and 60.1 per-
cent voting against it.
To me, it's an ugly matter. Of course, increased
population is hard on the environment. But it's not just
increased population here.
Population growth anywhere is going to eventually
affect the world environment, and adopting some silly
sealed borders policy isn't going to clean up conditions
anywhere. As one Sierra Club official put it, "The Sierra
Club cannot protect our environment by building a wall
around our borders. The common-sense solution to reduc-
ing our population is birth control, not border patrols."
Amen.
See you next week.

Trout triumph in bays; kings continue their run


By Capt. Mike Heistand
The kingfish run is continuing, with good reports
of the big, fast fish being caught less than eight miles
from the beach. Grouper action continues to be good,
too. Backwater anglers are getting mixed results fish-
ing for redfish, snook remain an occasional thing, but
trout action is very good.
Fishers at the Rod and Reel Pier report good
catches of redfish and pompano, with some occasional
mackerel and a few snook.
Kelly at the Anna Maria City Pier said action
includes a lot of sharks, a few snook at night, pompano
during the day, mackerel, a few sea.trout and a few
flounder.
Annie's Bait & Tackle'said that Capt. Zack on the
Dee Jay H said trout fishing is exceptional right now.
Snook and reds are being boated in the 30-inch range,
and Capt. Zack is also putting his charters on flounder,
bluefish and Spanish mackerel. Capt. Dave Pinkham
is finding great action with gag grouper to 14 pounds,
kingfish to 12 pounds and snapper to five pounds.
Capt. Mike Card said he's getting big snook and
trout in Terra Ceia Bay and south Tampa Bay. He's
also finding redfish action very good in north Sarasota
Bay.
Capt. Thom Smith at Angler's Repair said he's
bringing back redfish and snook.
Capt. Jason Henzell on the Neva-Miss said he's
finding a lot of kingfish offshore, plus cobia up to 30
pounds and big lane and mangrove snapper.
Carl at Perico Harbor Bait & Tackle said wade
fishers are doing very good with snook near the man-
grove islands or in holes at low tides. Redfish are
scarce, Carl said, but trout and numerous in the 15- to
20-inch range. Offshore action includes kingfish about
eight miles out.
Capt. Rick Gross said he's putting his charters
onto kingfish in the Gulf and snook in the bays.
On my boat Magic we're still catching redfish up
to 27 inches, snook to 32 inches and trout up to 24
inches.
Capt. Tom Chaya said kingfish are his best bet
offshore as long as he can find white bait, and
redfishing is good in the backwater.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said kingfish, co-
bia, grouper and snapper are plentiful in the Gulf. In the
bays, wade fishers are getting more than their share of
redfish and trout.
Mark at Captain's Marina said there are lots and
lots of big trout being caught right now and a few kings
are being landed in the Gulf. -
Capt. Glenn Corder said he's getting into some:
10-pound grouper and kingfish offshore.
Good luck and good fishing.
