They didn't love her to death
They didn't love her to death


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
For awhile the gradually gathering crowd along
Mike Norman's Bradenton Beach seawall thought
the manatee was dead and the nine others were in
mourning.
Sniff.
Then the dead wiggled, probably seductively, and
one of the "mourners" moved in. He was an amorous
male, courting the amorous female. So were the eight
other temporary bystanders, or byfloaters.
After nuzzling and caressing by him and some


lumbering coquetry on her part, they apparently did the
fell deed, though it was hard to tell, said Norman.
OK so far. But then it started again, with a differ-
ent suitor, and went on for an hour with the same cli-
max, apparently.
And on and on, all day.
Norman and the two dozen or so other spectators
had plenty of time to note that every one of the gentle
sea mammals had a backful of boat propeller scars.
Eventually the game ended, and in late afternoon,
Norman said, they all headed south.
Smiling.


Anna Maria boosts city budget


By Andrew White
Islander Reporter
The City of Anna Maria voted unanimously to ap-
prove the first reading of an ordinance that amends the
city's budget for the fiscal year that began on Oct. 1,
1997, and runs through Sept. 30, 1998. The new bud-
get has expenditures totaling $1,352, 561, up $283,858
from the original budget.
Capital improvements accounted for the largest
increases, including a road paving project that is esti-
mated to cost $164,198. The project will resurface
roads damaged during winter's El Nino storms and
includes the restriping of five miles of roads. Gator
Asphalt of Bradenton gave the city the lowest estimate
for the job and will be hired to do the work.
Other increases under capital improvements in-
cluded storm water management, up $18,000, and sur-
veys, up $2,000. The rise in stormwater management
was again due to the hard winter.'
Construction maintenance and improvements also
recorded large increases with the Key Royale dredging


project receiving $50,000 and tree maintenance, a
$13,000 increase.
Salaries accounted for a fair share of the added bud-
get dollars. The deputy city clerk's hours were increased
from part time to full time on concurrence from the com-
mission, raising that annual expenditure from $15,122 to
$26;325. Due to a "scribner's error," according to City
Clerk Peg Nelson, two commissioner's salary increases
went into effect following the February election but were
not included in the budget. A portion of the budget in-
crease corrects that error.
Due to large capital improvement and maintenance
projects, the city has ahead spent $2,000 that was bud-
geted for part-time help, and with more projects upcom-
ing in the summer, the department of public works has
created a new, permanent position for an entry-level main-
tenance worker at $15,600 per year. This also increased
the public works annual clothing allowance by $180.

Holmes


Beach


settles with


GTE, Smith

By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach city commissioners last week ac-
cepted a consent order from the federal court that
settled its eight-month lawsuit with GTE Mobilnet and
Smith Realtors.
"How we got here has been a comedy of errors, but
at this stage, it doesn't matter," Commissioner Roger
Lutz stressed. "GTE has the permits, the mayor has
signed off and they are building a tower. The question
before us is, Will I agree to let GTE drop its lawsuit
against us and not try to get damages?' I'd have to be
crazy to say, 'No. I want to keep being sued.'"
According to the consent order the city and its of-
ficials are ordered to:
Allow the tower to be constructed according to
plans submitted by GTE.
Issue all permits and approvals for the tower's
operation 72 hours after construction is complete.
Take no further action on the construction and
operation of the tower.
In addition, the commission agreed that the city
charter's referendum procedure cannot be applied to
the resolution approving the tower's construction and
that the city's ordinance governing the construction of
cellular phone towers cannot be applied to this tower.

VanWagoner protests
However, the status of a companion consent order
is being -questioned by .former Mayor Bob
VanWagoner, who also protested its contents at the
meeting. In this consent order VanWagoner is dis-
missed from the case in an official capacity because he
is no longer mayor and is also dismissed from the case
in an individual capacity.
"I have not agreed to a settlement of the individual
charges against me," VanWagoner told commissioners.
"My attorney, Mr. Yacavone, had no authority to rep-
resent that I had agreed or would agree to such a settle-
ment. I totally disavow any such agreement or even the
tendency to settle the case in this proposed manner."
Gregory Hootman, the city's attorney in the case,
said he is representing the city and its officials, not
VanWagoner, and cannot address VanWagoner's ob-
jections.
"I don't think that would have any direct bearing
on this body's vote tonight as it relates to the city,"
Hootman replied.
VanWagoner said because the agreement states

Perico annexation will not increase density


By.Pat Copeland
Islander.Reporter
The proposed annexation of the northern half of
Perico Island by the City of Bradenton will not re-
sult in an increase in density, Jerry West, planning
director for the City of Bradenton, said last week.
The Bradenton City Council held the first read-
ing of a an ordinance to annex the land from the
county and set the first public hearing on the issue
for June 10.
On April 17, five owners of the majority of the
property petitioned the city to annex their parcels
and establish a Planned Development Project clas-
sification. Property owners are Manatee Fruit Com-
pany, New Spectrum Inc., David Deitrich as trustee
of land trust #97-12, Perico Roadways Inc. and
Midcentral Inc.
According to documents supplied by West, the
annexation includes 416.42 acres of uplands and

that he will pay GTE $30,000 in return for dropping the
lawsuit, it implies that he is pleading guilty.
"Mr. VanWagoner's not paying a dime," Hootman
noted. "This money being paid on his behalf by the
Florida Municipal Insurance Trust that you paid premi-
ums for to extricate him from the case in which he has
been sued individually."
"I'm not paying a cent in cash but I'd be paying an
awful price in my reputation, my honor and my con-
duct," VanWagoner responded.
City Attorney Patricia Petruff then conferred with
Hootman on whether they could remove the paragraph
VanWagoner objected to from the consent order. How-
ever, Hootman said he is only asking for the
commission's approval to enter into the joint motion on
behalf of the city, not VanWagoner.

Residents question attorneys
"Our research and our input have been ignored for
two years," resident Jane Early pointed out. "The only
ones who have stood up for the citizens of Holmes
Beach are Mr. VanWagoner and Mr. Courtney. If you
dismiss Mr. VanWagoner as a rebel, you're wrong.
Thank you, Mr. VanWagoner, for all you've done."
Early then took Hootman to task for quashing the
citizens' mandamus action on the referendum and resi-
dent Joan Perry said citizens should have the right to
redress issues they believe are improperly legislated by
their government.
Hootman said citizens filed the mandamus action
in state court "over the same things that were apart of
the federal lawsuit" instead of intervening in the fed-
eral case.
"It is well established Florida law that a second
court should not enter any type of a writ when a first
court has jurisdiction," Hootman noted. "This is not
rocket science. It's basic civil procedure."
"We did investigate going to court as interveners
and we were told that if we did, we would be part of the
suit and be liable for damages," Early replied. "Frankly
none of us can afford that."
Hootman said it is in the city's best interest to settle
this case, because a jury trial would be risky and could
result in a large monetary judgment for GTE.
Resident Joy Courtney asked how the settlement
will affect the next cellular tower request. Hootman
said it only applies to this GTE tower and any other
requests will be governed by the city's cellular tower
ordinance. -
Resident Jerry Perry asked if GTE will have to re-
move the tower if it rusts or becomes obsolete.
Hootman said the tower must be operated according to
FCC guidelines and the court retains jurisdiction in
case either party doesn't abide by the settlement agree-
ment.

Commission action disputed
Lutz said the commission "shouldn't impose our
will on Mr. VanWagoner individually and I don't want
to do anything that makes it look like I'm encouraging
or discouraging him."
Lutz made the motion to accept.the consent order
which passed with Commissioner Luke Courtney dis-


Perico Island, just east of the Island, is the site of a
proposed development that could produce upwards
of 600 new homes on what is now open or
undevelopment property.
submerged bottom lands. The density is three units
per acre and the potential development is 900 units.
The city currently has a large water main there that
would be adequate to serve development.
"Our EAR (evaluation and appraisal report for
the comprehensive plan) recommended that we
change the density from 10 to three and the plan has
been adopted by the city and the state," West ex-
plained. "The comprehensive plan addresses all the
environmental issues."
Manatee County Commissioners discussed the pro-
posed annexation Tuesday and decided to oppose the pro-
posal for developmental and environmental reasons.


County Commissioner Joe McClash said the
county looked at acquiring the property years ago as
a resource for Manatee County, but the proposal was
dropped after the county was told the owners had no
intention to sell the property. He said he was sur-
prised to find the owners interested in development
and selling the property.
Last week, Bradenton City Councilwoman
Saundra Rahn asked how development would affect
hurricane evacuation.
"Because of the type of evacuation plan that the
city and the county have now, pre-storm warning and
evacuation take place a little quicker," Fire Chief Mark
Sauders replied. "As long as everybody in those areas
act responsibly and leave the Island and that area,
evacuation should not be a problem"
Elements in the city's EAR and comprehensive
plan that relate to development of the land include:
Keep population and investment low in areas
vulnerable to coastal flooding.
Designate undeveloped coastal acreage with
areas below the eight-foot elevation contour line as
PDP and limit residential development to low den-
sity below the eight-foot contour. Limit non-residen-
tial development below the eight-foot contour line to
water dependent uses.
Require the preservation and protection of the
historic shell' middens on the western peninsula if the
peninsula is ever developed.
Deny any application by property owners to in-
crease the density of development in the neighbor-
hood (western Perico).
Establish a coastal high-hazard area to include
all coastal lands along the Braden and Manatee Riv-
ers and Palma Sola Bay which are below two feet in
elevation.


Chronology of GTE/Smith Realtor


lawsuit against Holmes Beach


The following is a chronology of the lawsuit filed
by GTE Mobilnet and Smith Realtors against the'City
of Holmes Beach:
GTE and Smith sued the city, VanWagoner and the
city's two building officials in October 1997 because
of former Mayor Bob VanWagoner's refusal to sign
GTE's site plan for a cellular phone tower. The tower
was to be constructed at Smith Realtors, 5904 Marina
Drive; and was approved by the city commission in
August.
Following the approval, resident Joan Perry spear-
headed a petitioners' committee to initiate referendum
proceedings. The referendum petition was deemed suf-
ficient in October.
According to the city charter, the commission had
30 days to repeal its action. If the commission did not
do so, the question would go to voters in a regular or
special election 60 to 90 days after the petition was de-
termined sufficient. If the majority of the voters op-
posed it, the ordinance would be repealed.
When the 30 days was up in November, residents
demanded that the commission complete the process as
required by the charter. However, commissioners
tabled the petition issue after it was added to GTE's
federal lawsuit.
Commissioners had also declined to rule on the
issue of whether the referendum process applies to
resolutions. The tower construction was approved by


senting.
Later in the week VanWagoner asked for a copy of
the tape recordings of the meeting. He said he questions
whether the commission approved both consent orders.
"There were two consent orders and there should
have been two votes," he said. "I believe the commis-
sion passed the second consent order, not the first one."
He said he accepts the intent of the commission's
action but questioned whether it was a "proper business
session. Public hearings are public hearings. It was not
on the agenda to vote."
VanWagoner said he has been in contact with
Yacavone and GTE attorneys about the inference that
he acted illegally.
"I didn't do anything wrong or act unlawfully," he
maintained.


resolution and the referendum process refers only to
ordinances.
In December, residents again demanded that the
commission act on the petition. It killed the issue by
voting that the referendum process does not pertain-to
resolutions.
In January Perry filed a mandamus action asking
the court to order the commission to follow the city's
referendum procedure. A circuit court judge ordered
the commission to reconsider the resolution or show
just cause for not doing so. The city's attorney in the
case then filed a motion to quash the judge's order be-
cause the issue is pending in federal court.
In February, GTE also filed a motion to quash as
well as a motion to intervene in the hearing stating that
the company's right to build and operate a cellular
tower could be destroyed if the court granted Perry's
request.
In a March 12 hearing, the judge granted GTE's
motion to intervene. VanWagoner agreed to sign the
building permit for the tower on March 20.
On March 25 the circuit court judge quashed the
writ of mandamus filed by Perry. The judge said the
issue will be decided as part of the federal lawsuit.
In April GTE began construction on the tower. The
tower will be 148 feet high and support five antennas.
The diameter of the tower will be 6 feet 7 inches at the
base and 2 feet 4 inches at the top.


Budget
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
public works department brought an increase in pay to
that position from $16,480 to $17,550. New employ-
ees also brought increases in social security, up $1,030,
and employee health insurance, up $1,658.
Under fixed assets, the city is allowing an addi-
tional $5,000 to be spent on new equipment.
The budget items are separate from $500,000 the
city will receive from a Community Development
Block Grant for drainage and sidewalk improvements.
The increases also do not include the estimated $65,000
bike path project, which is still under consideration.
While the ordinance passed unanimously on first
reading it must pass a second reading next month.

Holmes Beach bike path gets bonus funding


By Paul Roat
Thanks to Manatee County Commissioner Joe
McClash and Sarasota City Commissioner Nora
Patterson, Holmes Beach received an additional
$200,000 Monday for bike paths.
The city's donation came in the wake of the de-
struction of a Sarasota landmark, the John Ringling
Towers.
A not-for-profit organization received funding for
a sidewalk at the Towers several years ago through a
special grant from the Florida Department of Transpor-
tation. When the nonprofit group failed to secure fund-
ing to restore the Towers and the building was sold to
a private developer who is demolishing the structure,
the state funding was freed for other projects.


Enter McClash, who argued before the Sarasota-
Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization that un-
der-funded projects like the bike paths in Holmes
Beach should be the recipient for any financial far-
gesse.
"I believe as an MPO we need to fund projects we
have already approved," McClash said. "I want us to
finish projects that have unmet financial needs."
That condition perfectly fits the Holmes Beach bike
path project, a state-funded effort to add bike lanes to both
sides of Gulf Drive from city limit to city limit. The city
received a grant for $152,000, but when the project was
designed it was learned that an additional $225,000 would
be needed to complete the city-long paths.
McClash's suggestion to fund the project was

transformed into a motion by Sarasota's Patterson, who
split up the Towers' $616,000 sidewalk project be-
tween Holmes Beach, a sidewalk project in Sarasota
and a curb project in North Port.
Bike path construction in Holmes Beach is sched-
uled to begin in 1999.

Trolleys stalled in bureaucratic network


By Paul Roat
The proposed public trolley for the Island has been
stalled for at least a year.
Members of the Island Transportation Planning
Organization the three Island mayors decided to
pass on the May 28 deadline for submitting a grant
application to the Florida Department of Transportation
to fund the trolley operation.
Cost of the system, which would include five trol-
leys and 10 trolley shelters is estimated at a total of
$1.27 million, with operating expenses between
$520,000 and $605,000 per year. It is hoped that the
DOT would provide funds for the trolley purchase and
would contribute half the operating costs for the first
three years through grants.
The delay will allow Island and county represen-
tatives time to deliberate on who would pay for trolley
operation outside of the state grant funds, which is es-
timated at $258,000 per year.
Surveys of residents to determine who and if rid-


ers would utilize the system is also an item of con-
sideration.
What has been proposed are three rubber-wheeled
"trolley theme" buses that would operate seven days a
week from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. There would also be two
trolleys that would run up and down the Island between
6:30 and 7:30 a.m. and 9 to 11 p.m.
The current bus route from the mainland to the Is-
land would be altered as well to provide more prompt
service.
A similar trolley system, running from Anna Maria to
Lido Key in Sarasota, was proposed in 1994. Funding was
approved for the system by DOT, but the grant was re-
jected by county commissioners partly due to virulent
opposition by Longboat Key, which objected to the
"toonerville trolley" going back and forth on the key.
Other objections centered on where the local oper-
ating money would come from. County commission-
ers argued that the bulk of the money should be borne
by the Island and Island officials stated the county


should pay for the trolleys.
Due to those impasses, the county returned the
funds to the DOT then.
Trolley Systems of America currently operates a
series of trolleys running from their base on Siesta Key
to the Island, the mainland and elsewhere:
Islanders have been seeking a means to alleviate
the traffic congestion problems on the Island for sev-
eral years. Traffic tie-ups last season reached a near
critical mass as far as Island elected officials were con-
cerned, and they began to lobby regional transportation
planners to come up with some means to get the cars
off Gulf Drive.
Now, it appears at least another season will pass
before any decisions are reached on trolleys or not. And
even with the decision to move ahead on an enhanced
Island bus network, grant approval and funding has
been gauged as a 50-50 chance at best and it would be
several years before the trolleys could be purchased and
on the road.


... and Holmes Beach rental law tabled until May 26


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach city commissioners once again
delayed action on the city's proposed ordinance to
govern the length of residential rentals.
Commissioners agreed last week to table the or-
dinance for further discussion at the May 26 work ses-
sion at the request of Commission Chairman Don
Maloney. Maloney said he still has questions concern-
ing enforcing the ordinance, operating a business in a
residential area and ensuring the collection of county
and state taxes.
"I propose that we ask other cities how they
handle residential rentals, ask our engineering
firm if their planners can offer a solution and
how much it will cost and have at least one spe-
cial work session on it."
Commissioner Roger Lutz said he thinks the
matter can be resolved quickly in a work session.


"I never had any intention of trying to zone some-
body who's running a business out of business," Lutz
stressed. "My main focus is to keep people from going
into predominantly residential neighborhoods and turn-
ing houses into motel rooms."
Commissioner Luke Courtney said he received a
phone call from a member of the Manatee County
Tourist Development Council who had spoken with
Larry White, director of the Manatee County Conven-
tion and Visitor's Bureau.
"Mr. White was extremely upset about our pend-
ing rental restriction legislation," Courtney ex-
plained. "He thought that Holmes Beach was becom-
ing Longboat Key-ish in their attitude towards tour-
ism. He felt that if Holmes Beach passes this anti-
tourism legislation, this would affect tourist tax dol-
lars that fund beach renourishment, and he would
recommend to county commissioners that Holmes
Beach be dropped from the renourishment plan."


The ordinance under consideration was killed
by the commission a year ago.It limited residential
rentals to 30 days in the R-l and R-3 districts to 14
days in the R-2 district. According to other ordi-
nances, seven-day rentals are permitted in the R-4
district and 30-day rentals are permitted in the R-
1AA district.
The property could not be rented more than
once during the designated rental period, but the
rental could be of any length. This provision would
also apply to the R-4 district. The ordinance also
made renting in a residential district a permitted
accessory use.
Grandfather status was included in the ordi-
nance but was to be eliminated after five years. To
attain grandfather status the use must have been
occurring six months prior to the passage of the or-
dinance in the R-l, RI-AA, R-2 and R-3 districts
and before June 30, 1992, in the R-4 district.

Beer, wine sales

at Cafe OK'd
You may soon be able to get a cold beer or a
glass of wine at the Cafe on the Beach.
Manatee County commissioners approved a
three-year franchise extension to Dee Percifield and
Gene Schaefer. Included in that extension is a pro-
vision to sell beer and wine at the restaurant property.
No beer or wine is allowed at the beach.
The beer/wine sale issue will have to come
before the Holmes Beach City Commission for a
final decision. No date for that session has yet
been set, and there are questions whether Cafe on
the Beach can meet the outdoor dining and drink-
ing provisions of the city.
The restaurant is at 4000 Gulf Drive at the
Manatee Public Beach. Percifield and Schaefer have
operated the establishment for more than five years
and are now on their last three-year renewal.
The franchise extension was not contested,
but the proposal to sell beer and wine was the is-
sue of the moment at Tuesday's county commis-
sion meeting.
Parks and Recreation Director Danny Hopkins
said the request to sell beer and wine would aid the
franchise bid process when it came up again in three
years. "It will make the bid process much more de-
sirable in three years."
Discussion on just where the beach ended and
where the restaurant began prompted Commissioner
Joe McClash to move to allow beer and wine sales
only in the enclosed areas of the restaurant.
'.It is a big step to sell beer and wine outside,
and I'm not prepared to take that step today,"
McClash said.
That motion failed, though.
The final vote to permit beer and wine sales at
Cafe on the Beach passed four to three, with Com-
missioners Gwen Brown, Pat Glass, Lari Ann Har-
ris and Stan Stephens voting in the affirmative.
Voting against the motion were Jonathan
Bruce, McClash and Amy Stein.

Suspicions of Medfly spread to Anna Maria Island
this week, but the evidence so far spares the Island. So far.
Traps to locate the Mediterranean fruit fly are
hanging in citrus trees around the Island, but they have
remained empty. A quarantine area, though, expanded
ominously toward Anna Maria.
Traps in Bradenton had caught 320 flies and count-
ing by midweek. Federal and state crews continued to
spray malathion on trees in an area bounded by the
Manatee River, 26th Avenue West, 67th Street West
and 34th Street West.
A larger quarantine area is the 24 square miles
whose boundaries are 10th Street West in Palmetto,


I think that I shall never see....
Holmes Beach Mayor Carol Whitmore thanked resident John Kowalski of South Harbor Drive for donating
this stately and beautiful Canary Island Date Palm to the city. The tree is valued between $2,000 and $4,000,
Whitmore said. The tree was relocated to the new city hall at a cost of $800. The fronds must remain wrapped
up for two months. Islander Photo: Bonner Presswood.

Cortez Road, U.S. 301 and Perico Island, just across the
Manatee Avenue bridge from Anna Maria Island.
Department of Agriculture officials said there are
no commercial groves in that area, but produce stand
operators must keep fruit covered by screen or plastic.
The Medfly is somewhat smaller than the house-
fly. It is not directly harmful to humans, but lays eggs
in any of 250 varieties of fruits and vegetables and ru-
ins them. Its incubator of choice is citrus, threatening
crops worth $200 million in Manatee County alone.
Government eradication efforts thus far are spray-
ing malathion from the ground, holding off aerial
chemical spraying unless the infestation spreads. Com-
ing soon are 300 million sterile male Medflies, with
which females may mate futilely and stop the life cycle.

Piling it on
For the past three years, the Anna Maria City Com-
mission has made a point of slicing and dicing its bud-
get for the express purpose of getting in under $1 mil-
lion.
Apparently, the big million figure created a bad
taste in the mouths of commissioners. Unable to meet
the goal last year, the budget went over the dreaded
mark. Now, eight months later, they've poured on the
fat, adding more than $280,000 in salary increases and
additional public works projects.
The budget review process which normally occurs
six-months into the fiscal year was delayed somewhat
- and projects such as dredging Bimini Bay, which
was discussed since long before the 1997-98 budget
was formed, were heaped on.
It's as though they started out dining on Lean Cui-
sine and decided instead to sally up to a Thanksgiving
buffet, turkey and all.
Although miniscule in comparison to other costs,
a portion of the increase will go to salary increases.
This comes on the heels of staff salary increases in
1996, just one budget period past, and increases in
1995.
An increase approved in 1995 went into effect for
two commissioners following February's election, but
the increase in pay was overlooked in the budget. A
portion of the revised budget will correct that error.
Another mid-budget request is for salary increases
for administrative positions, that of a full-time deputy
clerk and an administrative clerk for public works. The
public works position, which was only created within
the past two years, has received increases in the short
term and is currently vacant unless you consider that
a volunteer is now fulfilling those duties.
Why the commission is compelled to offer increases
for unfilled positions and perhaps most importantly -
to consider these changes mid-year, hasn't been aired.
Salaries have steadily increased in Anna Maria, apparently
not based on a step plan, merit or cost of living.
After all, it's not like they're in business, is it?
If you thought the platter was full last fall when the
budget topped $1 million for the first time, think again.
Come August, when they start planning-the 1998-99
budget, they'll likely be heaping on more gravy to at-
tempt to cover the spring stuffing.
The only thing likely to save a millage increase will
be increased property values. And by the way, the mid-
year increase amounts to nearly one-third the total bud-
get approved last October.
Your opinions on the budget revision ordinance
will be welcomed at the second reading during the
commission meeting on Tuesday, May 26, at 7 p.m.

OK beach parking fee, but
exempt six-month visitors
I agree with the merits of a beach parking fee. The $10
a year fee for Manatee County residents should also be
available for five- or six-month residents. I have been
coming to Anna Maria Island for five years and wouldn't
want to go anywhere else for the winter. The problem with
daily fees for five- or six-month residents would be too
expensive, especially for us Canadians because of the high
exchange rate, and would probably keep people from go-
ing to the beach as often as they would like.
Maureen Lajeunesse, Ontario, Canada

Island politics explained
Editor's Note: The following letter is a response to a
letter in the May 5 Islander Bystander by Tom Slusser.
Caught your letter in The Islander Bystander and
thought I might try to cheer you up a bit. As a valued
visitor you deserve no less.
You must not take too seriously the turmoil which
is characteristic of bur local government. Remember,
they are all amateurs and are like bulls in a china shop.
What they don't break up, they mess up!
If you are interested in knowing how this comes
about, maybe I can enlighten you a bit. Most mayors are
elected in Holmes Beach not because they are superbly
qualified, but because they have the money to advertise
heavily and because they are endorsed by The Islander
Bystander. The winning candidates also cultivate the
wealthy and thereby gain funds and other support. To a
lesser degree this is also true of the city commissioners.
I encourage you to read your back issues of The Is-
lander Bystander and learn for yourself why Rich
Bohnenberger was not re-elected although he'd done a


very good job as -mayor. Also, if you'll peruse your
back issues you'll be able to easily determine why our
most recent election produced the results it did.
You may ask how I am involved in all of this. I am
merely a constant voter who always tries to see the humor
in that which I cannot change. I hope you can come to the
point, also, of seeing the whole thing as Clintonesque.
Now, if you really want to have some fun, sub-
scribe to the Longboat Observer. Down there they have
lowered local politics to the level of the Black Hole of
Calcutta.
William G. Smith, Holmes Beach

SAM Some Are Magnificent
There are far better ways to spend one's time than
responding to letters from those with no concept, logic
nor knowledge of the debate of a megabridge versus
ours. I address comments castigating Save Anna Maria
(I am not a member) by a man from Salem, N.H., and
equally naive opinions expressed recently in the main-
land press by someone from Camillus, N.Y.
Neither attended more than 30 meetings on the
subject, seem unaware of regulations, exhibit evacua-
tion knowledge, experienced a couple-dozen passing
storms nor spoke from authority beyond bascule delays
when going for a hamburger. One must wonder where
they were when a realistic, factually supported attempt
was made to have each bridge open twice per hour,
only to be torpedoed by logic-decrying politics.
Further, although threeper-hour openings are man-
dated, must we assume they can't read the sign at the
end of the bridge and plan accordingly? As a county/
Island resident for generations with extensive cyclonic
experience my crib was an apple crate hanging from
Dad's boat canopy and decades on this Island, I
grow weary of those who "discover" the perfect place
to repose, then set about "improving" it.
There are some 44 Florida megabridges, use-de-
nied at 45 mph pre-storm, and certainly space exists for
both of these complainers at the far end of one.
Suggestion: study the facts of Hurricane Andrew
first. Intelligent debates are welcome, but in counter-
proposal, S.A.M.'s bumper stickers should read "Some
Are Magnificent!"
Jim Kissick, Bradenton Beach

TH1SE WERE THE AYS
___________ Part 12, The Secret Life of Marion Colman______


by June Alder


Wide-eyed
Marion
Colman,
age 4, in
Connecti-
cut where
she was
born in
1898.


A HAZARDOUS


JOURNEY


Marion Colman, granddaughter of
Anna Maria pioneer George E. Bean,
was nearly 30 when she became a
teacher in the Kentucky mountains. At
last she was doing the work she had
longed to do opening up the minds of
young people who had very little mate:
rial and spiritual advantages, to the
excitement of learning. She hoped to
devote her life to this endeavor.
The most vivid memory of her days
at Caney Creek College was a trek
through the wilds which threatened her
life. But she survived like one of her
heroes, Christopher Columbus, whom
she held up as a model to her students.
"Sail on, sail on and on, was his mes-
sage to posterity she transmitted to
them. She remained true to this maxim
to the end of herfruitful life.

By Marion Colman
One holiday weekend a girl in my
cottage and I started out on foot for the
nearest town, about eight miles away' I
was to meet a teacher from another
school whom I had been corresponding
with. My companion was to meet her
parents who were coming to see her
from another town.
It had been raining and the ground
was muddy when we started out. Rather
than carry a suitcase, I had wrapped my
things in several packages for each of us
to carry.
There were many streams to cross.
We had to use stepping stones from
time to time. At one point we made our
way across a rushing stream and the girl
slipped and fell into the water. Some-
how she managed to hold my package
up high so it would not get wet.
We reached the town in due time,
but her parents were not waiting for us
at the head of the creek, as had been
planned. So, exhausted and dirty, we
went to the only hotel in the town where
we spent the night.
For the return trip I bought some


oranges and some crackers and cheese
from the village store, but in my excite-
ment I left the crackers and cheese on
the counter. So we ate the oranges for
lunch and got back to the school in time
for a bit of supper.
My companion on that adventure
graduated from Caney Creek College a
few weeks later. On her graduation card
I wrote the following:

How well do I recall the day
When you. and I did haste away
With more courage than good sense.
We lost our way yet got us home,
Braved the storm and braved the
flood-
Oceans, rivers, seas of mud.
So through life when hard things come,
Knock you down now and again.
May you still come bobbing up,
Smiling, just as you did then.

I loved the mountains and the
mountain people and never again felt so
well as I did in those days so long ago.
I thought surely I would return to Caney
Creek again, but I never did.

Next: Farewell
to Caney Creek


Marion Colman was never happier than
when she labored among the Appala-
chian families struggling to survive in
the grim days of the Great Depression.

Police seek

suspect in

armed robbery
Have you seen this young man?
On Monday, May 18, at approximately 3:45
p.m., two young men approached a customer in
the parking lot of
Crowder Bros. Hard-
ware at the Anna
Maria Centre Shops,
..--: At Holmes Beach, asking
for a "light."
.i c The obliging
victim pulled items
from his pocket in-
*c eluding paper money,
and as he transferred
Suspect the money to his other
hand and reached fur-
ther in his pocket for a lighter, one of the young
men reached in his back pocket, pulled out a
small, palm-size revolver and demanded the
money.
According to Detective Sgt. Nancy Rogers, the
second young man looked surprised when his com-
panion pulled out the gun, and she therefore sus-
pects the robbery was not planned in advance.
The suspect sought is said to be a 16- to 17-
year-old white male with a thin build, pimples, rot-
ten teeth, dirty, dark hair and a tatoo on his chest.
If you have information that may assist in the
investigation, call Rogers at 778-7875.

By Paul Roat
If at first you don't succeed, ask for twice as much.
That's the tactic Bradenton Beach is attempting to
improve Gulf Drive through the addition of bike paths
along the roadway "and/or" sidewalks along the highway.
The city is applying for a pair of grants to the Florida
Department of Transportation through the Sarasota-Mana-
tee Metropolitan Planning Organization.
The "and/or" part of the request lies in the fact that
the MPO will only fund up to about $300,000 for im-
provements in any one area. Bradenton Beach has sub-
mitted two grant applications for similar projects in the
hopes that at least one will receive funding.
The city has narrowly missed out on making the
city more bicycle or pedestrian friendly in past years.
Bradenton Beach did get the number one spot on the
money list last year, only to later be bumped out by im-
.provements near the new Palma Sola Botanical Park
off 75th Street in Bradenton.
The Bradenton Beach grant requests would even-
tually tie into an Island-wide bike/sidewalk program
currently funded and scheduled to break ground next
year in Anna Maria and Holmes Beach.

Bikes
The "Bicycle/Pedestrian Pathway Project" would
be a pavement widening project along both sides of
Gulf Drive from the Bradenton Beach-Holmes Beach
city limits south to the Longboat Bridge. Proposed are
four-foot-wide bike lanes on the east and west side of
Gulf Drive within the existing right of way. No taking
of private land would be involved in the project.
Total cost of the project is estimated at $300,000, with
the city contributing 10 percent, or $30,000, to the project.

which will provide a safe travel way for non-motorized
vehicles," Bradenton Beach Building Official Bill Sand-
ers wrote in the proposal. He is also the city's grant writer.
"At present, our sidewalks are too narrow for two
bicycles to pass each other and do not run from one end
of our Island to the other," he continued.

Pedestrians
The "Pedestrian Pathway Project" would be a dis-
tinct sidewalk along much of the east side of Gulf
Drive. It would begin at the Bradenton Beach-Holmes
Beach city limits and stretch to the Longboat Bridge,
tying into the existing sidewalk from about 22nd Street
to Cortez Road. Again, the sidewalk would be con-
structed within city right of way and no private lands
would be taken in the project.
"Hopefully,'' Sanders wrote, "this path might, in
the future, be joined with a similar path in Holmes
Beach and Anna Maria and then connect to Longboat
Key so we would eventually have a path of consider-
able length, possibly 15 miles on Longboat Key and
eight miles for the entire Island of Anna Maria."
Cost of this proposal is also $300,000, with the city
picking up $30,000 in local matching funds.

What's next?
Members of the MPO Technical Advisory and
Citizen Advisory committees will review all the en-
hancement fund requests in the next few months. Their
recommendations will then go before the MPO board
by mid-summer for final approval.
The MPO approval is then forwarded to the DOT
for final authorization and funding. The money for the
projects will be available in fiscal year 2003-04.

Commission won't waive cop fees for events


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach commissioners recently agreed
that they will not waive fees for police services for
civic and nonprofit organizations that use the field
behind city hall.
The Anna Maria Island Art League requested
that the fees be waived for upcoming art festivals in
December 1998 and March 1999 because it is a non-
profit organization.
According to a 1989 city ordinance, the police
department is authorized to provide police services
for additional crowd control, security and traffic as-


distance for special events. A request for the services
must be submitted two weeks in advance and ap-
proved by the chief.
"We've been doing it for several years," Police
Chief Jay Romine explained. "You have several non
profit agencies that use the field and we also do traf-
fic duty for St. Bernard Church, which they pay for.
We can't afford to subsidize every event that goes on
out there."
Romine said several years ago he made the deci-
sion that all large events must have at least one officer
for special services. He said policing the events was
diverting officers from their normal duties. Officers are

Jump for joy!
Sarah Thomas, 14, of Anna Maria was the only eighth grade "Island girl" from King Middle School asked to
compete in the Manatee County middle school track meet May 2. Taking a leap into previously uncharted
waters, Sarah nabbed first place in the running long jump for eighth grade girls and broke the county record
for her 13-foot 7-inch strike. She took second for the eighth grade girls' one-mile run. Sarah is the daughter of
Susan and Richard Thomas. Islander Photo: Courtesy of Mom


paid $15 an hour for the service.
"I think the fee is pretty reasonable," Romine
noted. "It probably doesn't even cover our costs be-
cause we still have to pay workman's compensation
and other benefits. If you don't want to charge, I'll have
to reflect that in my budget."
Romine said last year his officers spent 74 1/2
hours policing art festivals and 16 hours policing
events sponsored by the Anna Maria Island Priva-
teers, with the exception of the parades. He does not
charge for the Privateers' two parades that travel
through the city. He said officers spent 104 hours on
St. Bernard traffic duty.
"If an event runs from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. and it's
drawing 10,000 people, it's too much for one person,"
Romine stressed. "One art festival this year required
four officers. I wish you could stand in dispatch while
one of these things is going on and help field the com-
plaints from all the people that live on Flotilla Drive
and in the outlying areas."
Mayor Carol Whitmore said the city should con-
tinue to charge because the sponsors make money on
the events.
Commissioner Roger Lutz asked how Romine
determines the number of officers and hours the
event requires.
"When the temporary use permit comes in, I de-
termine the number of officers and hours that will be
required from the number of people the event will at-
tract," Romine replied. "I put that on the permit
along with the total amount. Often it comes in
cheaper than what's on the permit, but we never go
over that amount."
Lutz asked if there should be written guidelines.
"It has to be done on a case-by-case basis," Romine
said. "For example, if the weather turns bad there may
be 300 people instead of 10,000. It's hard to determine
that in advance, so often it's on an officer discretion
basis. If the crowd is not there, the officer can leave."
Romine said if the commission establishes criteria
using the number of anticipated visitors in order to
determine the number of officers required, event orga-
nizers may underestimate the numbers.

By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
The Island Players have plotted their 50th birth-
day program and come up with a play from each de-
cade.
Ruth Stevens, who has been with the theatrical
group since 1965, said the upcoming signal season
will celebrate half a century of Island entertainment
at its best, and in the same location all those years.
Both the Players and its theater have a long his-
tory of drama here.
The group was founded in 1949 by an Islander
with 25 plays to his credit and a background of writ-
ing and directing at Yale University. He was Harold
Igo.
Years later his wife told of the couple moving to
Anna Maria City as Igo neared retirement, taking an
evening walk in their new hometown and spotting a
large old building at Pine Avenue and Gulf Drive.
"Gee," she quoted him, "I think I could make a
theater out of that."
The result of his long and tireless efforts still
stands, better than ever, at the corner.
The building originally was a large residence in
Parish, floated down the Manatee River on a barge
and shoved and dragged with horse and. human
muscle to Anna Maria. That was sometime shortly
after 1900, Stevens said.
By the 1920s it was a tourist center, and as time
passed it was a meeting hall, church, school and in its
ultimate incarnation the Players Theater.
It has gone through many renovations and expan-
sions, Stevens noted, the latest during last summer's
off-season when architect Art Ballman added a lobby
and other facilities and still managed to retain the

building's Key West architectural flavor.
It is supported by subscription and a membership
of 800, who pay $50 per season, or $10 per show, for
assured seating in the 150-seat theater; non-members
pay $12. Most performances are sold out when the box
office opens.
The 50th season will see three plays that run nine
performances each and two that will have 14.
The golden anfiiversary's program:
The 1940s tribute "Waltz of the Toreadors" by
Jean Anouilh, originally.presented by the Players dur-
ing the 1949-50 season, a blustery farce about a gen-
eral who considers himself a toreador with the ladies,

Coppel, first presented here in the 1965-66 season,

22.
The 1970s "Last of the Red Hot Lovers" by Neil
Simon, first appearing on the Island in 1972-73, a com-
edy about a gentle soul with a true blue wife who de-
cides he must join the sexual revolution, Jan. 15-31.
The 1980s "The Little Hut" by Andre Roussin
and Nancy Mitford, presented in 1980-81, a comedy

on a desert island, March 12-28.
The 1990s A play not staged here before,
"Sylvia" by A.R. Gurney, will be presented next May
7-16. It portrays a couple moving to Manhattan after
their children are grown only to find they are owners
of, or owned by, a stray dog named Sylvia.
In addition, a troupe of players from Wales will

Time Warner offers deal to Anna Maria


By Andrew White
Islander Reporter
Time Warner Communications is requesting re-
newal of a franchise agreement with the city of Anna
Maria. If accepted, the agreement would allow the
cable television company to operate within the city
limits for the next 20 years.
The current agreement between the city and Time
Warner expires in February 2000, but due to a $30
million upgrade the cable company will be initiating
in the next two years, it wants to renew now and get
an extended commitment from the city.
Rose Carlson, a vice president and general man-
ager at Time Warner, said the new upgrade will offer
digital television service, internet access and more
than 100 channels.
When asked about what rate increases customers
could expect, Carlson explained that Time Warner

does not calculate those in advance. She said rate in-
creases are based on inflation, a social contract that
Time Warner has with the Federal Communications
Commission and choice of programming. Carlson did
say that Time Warner will continue offering packages
like the basic and standard service they offer now.
The city commission seemed wary of entering into
such a long pact with the communications company,
but Carlson said Time Warner needs at least 20 years
to get a return on the $30 million investment. "We can-
not recoup our expenses in a shorter time," said
Carlson.
While the city could keep its current agreement
with Time Warner until it expires, Carlson said the new
contract "protects the city and customers better." The
new contract provides a five percent franchise fee for
the city, up one percent from the current agreement.
The commission will address the franchise agree-
ment at upcoming city meetings. No date has been set
to vote on the proposed contract.

Longboat rec center
to be raised
literally -
through fundraising drive
"Friends of the Bayfront Park Recreation Cen-
ter" of Longboat Key are seeking funds to raise the
center and enclose the lower portion. The cost is
estimated at $40,000.
Center director Sherry Fideler, who heads the
fundraising effort, said the elevation will let the cen-
ter add more activities and reinstate the pre-school
canceled this year by state guidelines that require ac-
commodations for 5-year-olds and under to be at
ground level.
When the building was moved after its. donation
by the Colony Beach and Tennis Resort it was el-
evated, but not quite enough for a room, she said.
Her group has raised $6,800 in cash and $1,000
in labor and supplies.
Goal is to raise $20,000 and ask the town gov-
ernment for another $20,000.
Information is available at 316-1980.

Restaurant

owner files

suit against

developer
By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The owner of Marco Polo Pizza recently filed a
lawsuit against Benderson Development Corporation.
Allegations include failure to file a site plan and
loss of income, Jesse Mullen, manager of the business
in the Anna Maria Island Center, said. In addition, two
pool tables that initially created problems with
Benderson have been returned to the restaurant.
In April Mullen and owner Tracey Glarner prom-
ised Holmes Beach commissioners that they would
remove the pool tables from the business if the city
would postpone an injunction hearing slated for April
1. After the pool tables were replaced with fooseball
tables, commissioners approved the site plan.
The issue began in January when Benderson, the
shopping center'.s owner, was cited for lack of a site
plan for the restaurant. The company submitted a site
plan on March 6.
However, because the site plan had not been ap-
proved by the city commission, Benderson was called
before the code enforcement board March 20. The code
board gave Benderson until April 10 to come into com-
pliance. .
On March 9, the city filed an injunction against the
business for operating without city approval and
unpermitted construction. In addition, Benderson offi-
cials objected to the addition of pool tables, video
games and a bar.

Neal establishes
Local business and political leader Patrick K. Neal
will send four Manatee County high school students to the
1998 Summer Research Project at Mote Marine Labora-
tory, Sarasota.
He donated $2,500 to Mote to establish the Patrick K.
Neal Student Scholarship Fund for Marin6 Environmen-
tal Science. It will give students access to one- and two-
week summer programs combining classroom work with
snorkeling and field experiences.
Studies planned for this summer's program include
shark biology, water resources, skates and rays, and ma-
rine mammals.
Neal noted that "Mote's summer programs are not
supported by taxes, so there is seldom enough money for
deserving Manatee County students who cannot afford to
pay for them. This scholarship will give four young people
an opportunity to participate in the finest program in the
state for the study of marine science and natural re-
sources."

Duke honors local seventh graders


Duke University's Talent Identification Pro-
gram (TIP) will hold a recognition ceremony May
26 at the University of Florida in Gainesville to
honor participating seventh graders across the state
whose TIP-qualifying college board scores would be
the envy of many graduating seniors.
TIP is designed to identify and develop academic
talent in seventh graders. Since 1980, more than
800,000 students from all over the world have taken
part in a TIP program. TIP's Talent Search identifies
those young students who score in the top 3 percent on
one of two national achievement tests. Talent Search


participants receive a variety of educational materials
and publications during high school and for additional
fees are invited to participate in summertime studies at
Duke's Durham, N.C., campus.
Four local students will be honored at the 1998
state recognition ceremony. They are, from Martha B.
King Middle School, Jacquelyn Carter and Holly Lillis
of Anna Maria, and from W.D. Sugg Middle School,
James Mazza and Ditra Paloski of Longboat Key.
Parents and students interested in TIP's Talent
Search may contact their middle-school guidance
department or Duke University, 919-684-3847.

ject who was disoriented and was missing his shorts
and bicycle. The subject said he was at the beach with
friends and a girl gave him some pills which made him
groggy and disoriented.
The officer said earlier in the evening, the subject's
father had asked him to watch for the subject who had not
returned home. The officer took the subject home to a
thankful father who said he would discipline the subject.
Later another complainant reported finding a bi-
cycle and a pair of shorts near where the subject was
found. The officer found an antidepressant pill in the
pocket of the shorts and confiscated it. He returned the
shorts and bicycle to the subject's father, who said he
would bring the subject to the police station the next
day for further information.
May 13, found property a fire extinguisher,
city hall field, 5901 Marina Drive.
May 13, found property damaged tank of
freon, Key Royale Bridge.
May 13, suspicious, 4000 Gulf Drive. The com-
plainant reported she left her wallet on the bumper of her
car and went to the beach. When she returned, it was gone.
May 1-3, theft, 500 block of 59th Street. The victim
reported she had 25 checks stolen on May 20 and most had
been cashed. The total value of the forged and uttered
checks was $1,439.11, of which $1,100 was made out to
a juvenile suspect. The case is under investigation. -
May 15, disturbance, 5353 Gulf Drive,
Timesaver. The complainant reported she went into the
store to purchase soft drinks and when she entered the
store, the lights were on inside as well as in the park-
ing lot. The complainant said she didn't realize the
store was closed and the subject, who was inside wax-
ing the floors, had forgotten to lock the doors.
The complainant said she startled the subject, who
began yelling at her to leave and using profanity. She
said she became scared and began yelling in return and
when she started to leave, the subject came at her. She
said she backed out the door and turned over a snack
rack to put it between her and the subject.
The officer spoke to the subject who admitted he
had overreacted when the complainant startled him.
The officer advised the subject that he was at fault for
forgetting to lock the door. The subject apologized.


Bermuda Bay groundbreaking
One of the last large undeveloped tracts of Bradenton Beach should become a development by the end of the
summer. Bermuda Bay will consist of 28 townhouses with enclosed garages and views of the Gulf and bay in
an old-Florida style. The condominium community is developed by Reed Mapes, who built Northbeach Village
in Holmes Beach. Pictured at groundbreaking ceremonies are, from left, Victoria Bond, sales associate; Tom
Sprinkle, vice president of Reed Mapes Inc.; Mapes; and Sandy Macdonald, sales associate. Bermuda Bay is
located at 1401 Gulf Drive N., Bradenton Beach. Islander Photo: Paul Roat

Cheers
Whether you're happy or not, I am.
Manatee County Commissioners long ago took
away the privilege of enjoying a "libation" on our pub-
lic beaches. No cold beer at Anna Maria Island beaches
although it is permitted on the Palma Sola Cause-
way due to the fact that area is within the city of
Bradenton. The county has jurisdiction at the Manatee
County Public Beach and they deem such activities
inappropriate.
So, it's been a long, uphill battle for Dee Percifield
and Gene Schaefer, operators of Cafe at the Beach, a
-nearly full-fledged restaurant except for liquor service,
where years ago only a concession stand existed.
On Tuesday, the county approved beer and wine

service for the franchisee with a multitude of pro-
visions including service only with meals.
I say, hooray. But let's not get in a big hurry here.
There's a Holmes Beach hurdle to overcome yet. And
since that city commission will have consideration for
approving the Cafe's request to serve beer and wine,
we can only hope it will go smoothly.
It seems logical to me, although I realize logic
doesn't always flow in government, that if you can
have a beer at a Pittsburgh Pirates ballgame in
Bradenton without threatening the future lives of chil-
dren or harming family values, you can do the same at
the beach.
After all, we're not talking about setting up rock
bands and serving mass quantities of alcoholic bever-
ages. We're talking about serving beer and wine with
meals. The atmosphere and food are conducive, so'
prudish attitudes aside, and with fears of injury from
broken glass dissuaded by the use of proper disposable
containers, maybe we can move forward on this issue
in Holmes Beach as well.
One reason Percifield and Schaefer have pursued their
request again, renewed from defeat several years ago, is
El Nino. Yes, that blame-all winter-of storms wreaked

havoc on dining establishments here, particularly those
with outdoor dining, according to restaurateurs.
Cafe on the Beach, having the large majority of its
seating outdoors, was washed out of business quite
often over the past winter. Consider the franchise rent
of more than $14,000 a month to the county and just
imagine making up the difference on all-you-can-eat
pancakes and hot dogs. Not that that's all they serve,
but you get the idea.
Beer and wine may give them a better chance to
survive summer by increasing their customer base to
include folks who like a beer or glass of wine with
dinner.
And by the way, for County Commissioner Joe
McClash, who stated during deliberations that the near-
est outdoor establishment with alcohol to the south of
the public beach is Gulf Drive Cafe, and next south
would be Harbor House: Oops.
Wrong on both counts, commissioner. Gulf Drive
Cafe in Bradenton Beach has never served alcohol and
Harbor House has been the Beach House Restaurant for
something like three years.
But you're welcome to cross the bridge and take a
look around again anytime soon.

Friends and neighbors of Bradenton Beach resident
Mike Norman, center, gathered at his bayfront dock
for what was thought at first to be a "funeral for a

dead manatee. Instead, it turned out to be mating

to the delight of the bystanders. (See cover story.)

fI Island Baseball

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

Haley's scores come-back
win over Tip
Little League action at the Anna Maria Island
Community Center stepped up a notch when Haley's
Brandon Roberts pitched a complete-game, three-hit-
ter and struck out 10 Tip of the Island batters to win a
pitching duel over Taylor Manning by a close 5-4 de-
cision Tuesday night.
Haley's took an early lead, scoring two runs in
the first inning when Tyler Krauss reached base and
moved to third on a stolen base and a passed ball.
Krauss then trotted home as Bobby Cooper reached
first on an error by the second baseman to give
Haley's a 1-0 lead. Hunter Green followed with a
single to score Cooper for a 2-0 first-inning lead for
Haley's.
Tip came right back to take the lead when Joey
Mattay led off with a single and, after moving to third
on a couple of passed balls; scored when Manning
reached base on an error. Luther Sasser then drove
Manning home with a drive that glanced off the cen-
ter fielder's glove to tie the score at 2-2. Dowling
reached on an error, scoring Sasser and giving Tip a 3-
2 lead.
Haley's retook the lead in the third inning when
Cooper led off with a double, setting the stage for
Green, who responded with a long home run over the
left-center field fence, giving Haley's a 4-3 lead.
Undaunted, Tip fought back to tie the score in the
bottom of the inning when Sasser led off with a double
and scored on a fielder's choice grounder by Adam


Bouziane, making the score 4-4.
Haley's scored the winning run in the top of the
third when Krauss led off with a single and kept going
to second when the left-fielder had trouble fielding the
ball. After Krauss stole third base, Cooper chased him
home with a single and the winning run to give Haley's
a 5-4 lead, which would be all they needed with Rob-
erts on the mound.
Roberts breezed through the final three innings,
allowing only one base runner and recording five of the
final nine outs via strikeout to secure the win and move
Haley's closer to the title.
In other action:

Kiwanis 8, AMFD 2
Monday night's action saw Bobby Gibbons get
the pitching win in the 8-2 win as Zack Hill and
Brian Lucas each had run-scoring triples. Aaron
Stark, Robby Dial and Gibbons each had a hit on the
night while Evan Wolfe chipped in with an RBI dur-
ing a 2-for-4 night.
Chase Parker led AMFD at the plate going 3-for-
4 including a double, while Anthony Rosas went 2-for-
4. Jan Fredrickson had a double and an RBI among his
two hits, while Brett Milks managed a single.

Bob Boast Dodge 12, AMFD 3
Billy Malfese got his first win on the mound, scat-
tering five hits in five innings and giving up only two
runs to lead BBD over Anna Maria Fire District.
Bob Boast had their bats working this night as five
players Mario Torres, Cory Schafer, BJ Keim,
Dustin Cole, and Brian DeBellevue each went 2-for-
3 on the night. DeBellevue supplied a couple of big hits
getting a double and a triple on the night while Schafer
and Cole each had RBI doubles while Jessie Kane-
Hartnett drove home a run on a single.
Jan Fredrickson and Anthony Rosas each had an
RBI single for AMFD while Scot Vensel and Brett

Wonders at hand while beach strolling


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
If you've been doing any beach walking lately, mar-
veling at the crystal clear water right now in both Gulf and
bay, you've probably noticed a couple of things.
First is that plovers and terns are busy nesting on lo-
cal beaches.
Many of the nesting areas are marked by signs, but
keep an eye out anyway and please don't stroll into nest-
ing areas. The nests, eggs and hatchlings are almost invis-
ible in the sand for nature's good reasons and are
certainly destroyed if you walk on them.
Sure, the tiny terns especially will try to drive you
away from the nesting areas should you wander too close,
but it's amazing how many folks let their dogs and chil-
dren "go play with the birds" anyway. The lives of these
critters are difficult enough as we humans destroy more
and more of their habitat, so please, watch from a distance.

'Livers' on the beach
If you've been doing any beach walking you might
have also noticed the sea hares washing ashore. They're
what some folks call "livers on the beach" because they
look and feel a lot like the liver of something. Soft, squishy
and, when you pick them up, they may use a purple dye
to leave a stain on your hands.
But they're not livers, they're harmless sea hares, and
a close relative of the snails most of us love with garlic
butter. In fact, they actually look a lot like a big snail if you
pick one up and unfold its "wings." If you run your fin-
ger down its back you'll even feel a small bump that's the
remnants of its residual shell.
Curious creatures, I've long picked them up and
pitched them back into the Gulf, only to watch them
slowly swim ashore again. So I asked Debra Ingrao at
Mote Marine Laboratory why they do that.
"To die," she said simply.
Smooth sea hares, the ones washing up now, live
about a year and, after maturing, mating and laying their


eggs, they die. Sea hares of one type or another occur
worldwide in tropical and subtropical seas.
Because of one characteristic they have very large
nerve cells they're commercially raised and there have
been many studies of their physiology. Those studies are
directly related to understanding the function of the human
nervous system.
Prior to coming to Mote, Ingrao grew sea hares at the
University of Miami Aplysia Resource Facility where
they raise and ship more than 25,000 of the creatures for
medical research every year. In case you're interested, a
mature sea hare with a pedigree from the University of
Miami is available for $20.
I checked the price list.
By the way, a trip on the Internet to learn more about
the critters leads to some strange places. I ended up on a
web page named "The Slug Forum" and reading a news-
letter called "Slime Lines" produced at the University of
Miami. And it was interesting too.
And the Internet being the Internet, the next most in-
teresting sea hare site was a newsletter called "Western
Fisheries." That's produced by the Western Australian
Museum and gave a fairly graphic description of the sea
hare's sex life. It seems they have a propensity to form
"daisy chains" of a dozen or more individual sea hares
during mating.
Yes, "daisy chains" was the term used.
And here we thought they were some kind of liver on
the beach. I can't help but wonder how they'd taste with
garlic butter.

Last call at Allen's
Speaking of eating, everybody has a favorite restau-
rant and mine truly is Allen's Cafe in Auburndale. I've
been stopping there every time I'm in the neighborhood
ordering a big plate of little-bitty wild catfish for a
decade or two now.
But the landmark and Allen's is a landmark for
several reasons is closing. The menu is unique, includ-
ing in addition to catfish, rattlesnake, possum, turtle and
lots of other items you're more apt to find in the woods

than a supermarket.
I like that.
Secondly, the interior of the restaurant is decorated
with thousands of antiques and collectibles of one kind or
another, including a huge number of arrowheads the
Aliens have collected over the years. One night a while
back, as I was eating those little catfish, which crunch like
corn on the cob, Carl Allen himself sat down at the table
and explained how and where he'd come to find so many
of the tiny birdpoint arrowheads.
It was a real lesson in practical archaeology, and
among the listeners was my now-archaeologist daughter.
Carl died a couple of years ago and his wife Jewel is
getting on in years and has decided to close the cafe. So
you've only got until the end of May to stop by if you want
to see and taste some genuine old Florida.
If you do, just ask anybody in town where Allen's is
located and they'll point it out.

Will sail for ... fun
Saturday and Sunday, May 30-31, is the annual
Sarasota Sailfest at the Sarasota Sailing Squadron. The

lenges.
Classes include Optimist, Laser, Byte, Laser Radial,
Sunfish, Johnson 18, Viper, 420, PHRF, San Juan 21, Day
Sailer, JY21, Portsmouth, True Cruisers, Monohulls and
Multihulls.
Registration is only $25 for any of the classes 'and
includes what the SSS calls a "cool shirt."
Lunch and dinner are available both days at a low
fare, they say, plus great door prizes, raffles and "kegs,
kegs, kegs."
Location is in the waters off the Squadron, located at
City Island in Sarasota, just south of Longboat Key past
Mote Marine Laboratory.
Saturday registration starts at 9 a.m., the skipper's
meeting is at 11:30, and racing begins at 12:30 p.m. More
races start at 10 a.m. Sunday.

Snook season at its peak right now


By Capt. Mike Heistand
Snook action is about as good as it gets right now,
with big linesiders at their peak of response to a well-
jiggled bait in the backwaters. Offshore, kingfish season
is about at a close, but bottom fishing for grouper and
snapper is excellent.
Fishers at the Rod and Reel Pier report snook are
being caught at night, with redfish, Spanish mackerel,
black drum and mangrove snapper coming to the dock
during the day.
Anglers at the Anna Maria City Pier are reeling in
a lot of mackerel, a few mangrove snapper, shark and a
couple of sheepshead.
Annie's Bait & Tackle said that Capt. Zack on the
Dee Jay I said Darrell Duncan and his son Ryan did well
with a mixed-bag of snook, reds, trout, gag grouper to 22
inches and some of the biggest Spanish mackerel Zack
had ever seen, some up to 27 inches long.

By Senior Chief D.M. Bucci
Officer in Charge, U.S. Coast Guard, Cortez
May 7, Search and rescue /assistance. Station
Cortez received a report of a body floating near the
Sunshine Skyway Bridge. A Coast Guard boat re-
sponded, recovered the body and transported it back
to Station Cortez, where it was turned over to the
medical examiner's office. The body was later iden-
tified as that of a man who jumped off the bridge
earlier in the day.
May 8, Search and rescue /assistance. Station
Cortez received a report of a 20-foot flats boat overdue
in Sarasota Bay. A Coast Guard boat responded and
searched the area until the boat's operator called from
shore and reported everything was OK.
May 8, Search and rescue /assistance. Station
Cortez received a report of a 25-foot vessel overdue
from Englewood. A check was made of all local mari-
nas, bridges and waterfront restaurants, but the boat
returned to port safely during the communications
check.
May 9, Search and rescue /assistance. While on
patrol, a Coast Guard Auxiliary vessel from Flotilla 84
rescued two swimmers that were caught in the current
in New Pass. The swimmers were unhurt and trans-
ported to shore.
May 9, Search and rescue /assistance. While on
patrol, a Coast Guard Auxiliary vessel from Flotilla 84
came upon a disabled vessel in New Pass and towed the
boat to Centennial Park.
May 10, Search and rescue /assistance. Station
SCortez received a report of a disabled 17-foot vessel in
Terra Ceia Bay. A Coast Guard Auxiliary vessel from
Flotilla 85 was diverted to the scene, but a Good Sa-
maritan towed the boat to a nearby boat ramp before the
auxiliary vessel arrived.
May 10, Search and rescue /assistance. Station
Cortez received a report of a 70-foot vessel taking on
water a half-mile south of the Venice Inlet. As a Coast
Guard boat responded, the vessel was able to stop the
flooding and needed no assistance.


It's time to fish the Islands again.
An annual event in its sixth year, Fishing the
Islands Tournament is the largest tourney on Anna
Maria Island. More than $20,000 in cash and mer-
chandise prizes will be awarded this year, with a big
chunk of the proceeds going to benefit the Anna
Maria Island Community Center.
The one-day tournament will be held Saturday,
June 20.
As an incentive to register early, boats that en-
ter by Sunday, June 14, will receive a "bonus pack"
of gifts worth more than $100. The goodies include
official tournament T-shirts, hats, coffee mugs,
Trilene Big Game fishing line and more.
And here's another reason to enter early: the
first 50 paid entries in the tourney will receive a free
seven-foot, GL2 graphite G. Loomis spinning rod,
compliments of Island Discount Tackle and
Crowder Brothers Hardware.
If the goodies aren't enough to spur you to put
up the money now, consider that the $200 registra-
tion fee for fishers prior to June 14 will jump to $325
after that date.
Particulars of the event are as they have been in
past years:
There will be two divisions, inshore and off-
shore. Inshore fishing is only catch-and-release, and
Polaroid cameras will be issued to each inshore team
to record the day's catch.
Prizes for first place in each division are
$5,000 cash. Second place division winners receive


May 10, Search and rescue /assistance. Station
Cortez received a report of a capsized boat in Palma
Sola Bay. A Coast Guard boat responded. The vessel's
propeller caught on some stationary fishing gear and
the boat's own wake filled the vessel with water. All


$2,000, and third place wins $1,000.
No more than five fishers may be on any boat,
and only boat fishers can enter the tournament.
A Captain's Meeting will be Friday, June 19, at
the Anna Maria Island Community Center, 407
Magnolia Ave., Anna Maria, from 5 to 8 p.m. At
least one representative from each boat must attend
the meeting to receive tourney instructions, al-
though all family and crew are invited to attend.
Entertainment and refreshments will be provided,
and roast beef sandwiches, compliments of the
Bridge Tender Inn and Dockside Bar, will be served
from 5:30 to 7:30.
Fishing gets underway at 6:30 a.m. Saturday,
June 20. Fishers have until midnight to bring their
catches or photos to one of two weigh stations -
Anna Maria Oyster Bar at the Anna Maria City Pier,
or the dock at the Mar Vista Dockside Restaurant
and Pub at the north end of Longboat Key.
The post-tourney party will begin at noon Sun-
day, June'21, again at the Center. Results and win-
ners will be announced at 2 p.m., but plan to spend
some time enjoying the picnic-style food sponsored
by the Sandbar restaurant, the Beach House and the
Mar Vista. Prizes will be awarded every 15 minutes
during the party.
Last year's tourney donated $10,000 to the
Center's youth athletic programs, bringing the total
contributions from the tournaments to $29,000.
For more information, call Island Discount
Tackle at 778-7688 or fax 778-4999.


the boat's passengers swam to shore, and there were no
major injuries. The boat was later towed to shore.
May 11, Boarding. A 20-foot vessel was boarded
in Anna Maria Sound. The vessel was found to be in
compliance with all applicable federal laws.

Baby bird season

again: what to do
It's the season once more when baby birds get in
trouble and need help, says the man who knows more
about such things than almost anybody around here,
Pelican Man Dale Shields.
"At this time of year almost everyone's attention at
the Pelican Man's Bird Sanctuary is directed toward care
and feeding of baby birds," he said. He offered this advice:
"If you find a baby that's fallen out of its nest, put
it back in the nest. Don't worry, your scent won't
bother the parent and it will continue to care for its
baby.
"If you can't locate the nest, fashion a substitute
out of a flower pot or hanging plant container and put
it in a safe area close to where you found the baby.
"But remember that birds learn to fly on the
ground. If you see a well-feathered little fledgling on
the ground, leave it alone its parents will return to
feed and care for it by the end of the day.
"If you find a baby bird that appears injured or

orphaned, contact the sanctuary at 388-4444."
For tender loving care of birds in general, Shields
advises:
Keep bird baths filled with fresh water and bird
feeders filled with fresh seed.
Wait until after June to burn or prune underbrush,
trees and shrubs. If you accidentally cut down a tree or
bush that contains a nest, drive a post into the ground
near the original nest area and attach the. nest to it.
Keep pets on a leash or indoors.

Man's Bird Sanctuary to benefit from the Baby
