Holmes Beach commissioners recently voted to
take a homeowner to court because of excessive re-
Commissioners allege that the renovations to the
home of Pauline Pasco, 201 73rd St., exceed the Federal
Emergency Management Act's 50 percent rule. Accord-
ing to the rule, renovations or improvements to a noncon-
forming, ground-level structure cannot exceed 50 percent
of the structure's value within a five-year period.
City Attorney Patricia Petruff said the public works
department became aware of the problem in late 1997 and
former Mayor Bob VanWagoner was briefed. Petruff said
VanWagoner instructed her then to wait until after the
mayoral election in March to pursue the issue.
"Ms. Pasco retained a contractor and they entered into
a contract for renovations," Petruff explained. "The con-
tractor brought in a contract and appraisal, they met the 50
percent rule and the permit was issued."
Petruff said Pasco and the contractor apparently
had a disagreement resulting in lawsuits between them.
Pasco also reported the contractor to the Florida De-
partment of Business and Professional Regulations and
sent DPBR documents relating to the issue.
"One of the documents was a contract for $20,000
more than the contract utilized to pull the building per-
mit," Petruff continued. "The second contract was
dated and signed by all the parties in close proximity
to the original contract."
Petruff said DBPR notified city building official
Joe Duennes, who determined the permit would not
have been issued because the contract would have ex-
ceeded the 50 percent rule. Duennes then contacted
FEMA so the city's flood insurance would not be jeop-
ardized, she said.

A site plan for the Publix supermarket planned
for the former Island Foods property, 3900 East
Bay Drive, was submitted to the Holmes Beach
Public Works Department May 19.
The plan shows a 27,887-square-foot store
with native Florida vegetation including sea grape,
sabal palm, southern red cedar and silver button-
wood trees and dwarf yapon holly bushes planted
throughout the 3.29-acre site.
The plan must be reviewed by city building
officials and the West Side/Anna Maria Fire Dis-

Good neighbors to have in wake of disaster
By Jim Hanson
It isn't that they like tornadoes, but the Gewirtzes
got so much satisfaction out of the ones they went on
that they are raring to go again.
They are rested up now after three weeks of helping
victims of the tornadoes that killed 42 people in central
Florida in February, but they won't forget the experience.
"It was pretty mind-boggling, the damage and the
carnage," said Elaine Gewirtz at their Holmes Beach
home where she and husband Fred reviewed their time

At Ponderosa Park motor home center, the
Gewirtzes worked some days from 6 in the morning
until 11:30 at night, delivering food and drink and
snacks to those dispossessed by the storms and to vol-
unteers there to ease the suffering.
The Gewirtzes spent most nights in motels and
many mealtimes hungry, helping others make it
through another day. Often they ate the meals they
handed out to victims, which "are reminiscent of a
school cafeteria solid and nutritious but not exactly
haute cuisine," said Elaine.
They got two days off during their hitch. and they
came home for both of them. On one. they "went to a

Anna Maria board rejects setback variance
By Andrew White
The Anna Maria Planning and Zoning Board heard
only one case at its meeting last week. In a continued
hearing, contractor Mark Kimball appeared on behalf
of homeowner Roy Henry, who requested a variance to
reduce the south side setback of his property on North
Shore Drive to five feet.
Henry's plan was to add a lateral addition to his
home that included an upstairs, third-floor deck en-
closed in glass. A previous meeting on the issue left
Kimball feeling confident he would be allowed the
variance, but upon further review of the material,

Fire district OKs irrigation we
By Pat Copeland
The West Side/Anna Maria Fire District recently ap-
proved an interlocal agreement with Holmes Beach for the
installation and maintenance of an irrigation well.
The well will irrigate the fire district property and
the city's baseball and soccer fields and city hall com-
"We said we'd love to participate because right
now we're on county water," Fire Chief Andy Price
told fire commissioners. "If we were to water like we
should to keep our grass nice and green, our bill would
be $500 to $700 per month,"
According to the agreement, the fire district would
pay 25 percent and the city 75 percent to install and
maintain the well, including costs for engineering, site
location, digging, pump purchase and installation and
pump maintenance and repairs.
The fire district would furnish all of the electricity
to operate the pump. Each party would pay for design,
installation and maintenance of water mains, lines and
sprinkler heads necessary to that party's needs.
The well will be located on or near fire district
property. The two parties will decide on a schedule of
use and only one party can use the pump at a time.

Let nonconformities continue, planners say
By Pat Copeland
Holmes Beach planning commissioners recom-
mended last week that the city should allow
nonconformities to be rebuilt or continue to exist fol-
lowing a disaster.
Planners were responding to a question posed by
the city's disaster recovery task force to aid the task
force in developing a disaster recovery plan. Planners
were asked to consider whether nonconforming struc-
tures and uses should be grandfathered if they are de-
stroyed in a disaster.
Chairman Sue Normand said she asked Public
Works Supervisor Joe Duennes to identify the noncon-
forming uses and structures in the city.
"He said there are too many to address individu-
ally, so we're going to have to make generalizations
about what types of uses and structures may or may not
be allowed or rebuilt," Normand explained.
Normand said there are many non-conforming uses
in the R-4 district, businesses and several motels, op-
erating in a residential district.
However, the R-4 district has a "resort overlay,"
allowing zoning for properties historically operated as
"We cover all that in the future land use [element
of the comprehensive plan]," Planner Bruce Golding
said. '"Land uses or structures which are either incom-

patible or inconsistent with the adopted future land use
plan shall be deemed legally-nonconforming as of May
1989,'" Golding read from the plan. "They'll just have
to rebuild according to modern standards."
"Joe Duennes said that the grandfathered use goes
with the structure, rather than the land, so if more than
50 percent of the structure is destroyed, the
grandfathering is gone," Normand replied. "We now
have to consider if we are going to allow that
grandfathering to continue."
"This city does not have the stomach to take any-
thing away from anybody," Golding noted. "We can't
even pass a residential rental restriction ordinance be-
cause people get upset. We're not about to go into the
southern part of town and take things away from
people. That will never happen."
Planners recommended that if a nonconforming
structure is more than 50 percent destroyed, it may be
rebuilt as long as the structure meets the guidelines in
the comprehensive plan and is built according to all
applicable federal, state and local regulations. In addi-
tion, they recommended that the city allow the noncon-
forming use to continue to be grandfathered.

People program needs
more people to help
By Jim Hanson
"There are thousands of retirees here, sitting
around with nothing to do," said Herbert Harrington.
"It's surprising that more of them don't get up and
do something useful."
"It's not hard," said Dottie Morasco, "and it's so
rewarding to feel 'Thank.goodness I was able to do
something good for somebody today.'"
They were talking about Meals on Wheels,
which has gotten help from them for years and now
needs more help from more people, with many help-
ers going north for the summer.
Morasco, of Holmes Beach, has been delivering
meals to those who can't fend for themselves ever
since she came here 16 years ago. She had just re-
tired from Timkin Bearing Co. in Pittsburgh.
Now she brings meals to about two dozen people
on Anna Maria Island one noontime a week, often
more often during shortages of volunteers, such as
Her clients are people who are alone and can't
get out for meals and can't cook their own.
"I've been delivering to some of the same people
for 10 years," she said. "You get to know what to ex-
pect when you go to the door. For some of them,
we're the only conversation they have all day."
A Meals on Wheels truck brings meals to the old
Island Foods parking lot five days a week, and vol-
unteers take them from there. Morasco's territory is
Holmes Beach and Anna Maria City.
Harrington's is Bradenton Beach and the Mana-
tee County half of Longboat Key.
Harrington has been on the volunteer job for 12'
years, "so long that my car can almost drive itself,"
he said. The numbers vary, maybe 15 diners per day.
"This is a wonderful program," he said. "It lets
old people stay in their houses. Otherwise they'd

Applicants are eligible for fan assistance
from now through Sept. 30, and same-day ap-

viduals. Total household income is the deter-
mining eligibility factor, said Campbell.

Holmes Beach mayor updates residents
In an effort to improve community communica-
tions, Holmes Beach Mayor Carol Whitmore requested
a periodic report in The Islander Bystander, updating
city actions, policies and other matters of interest.
She has initiated a citizen complaint form. Any
time a citizen calls with a complaint, it is noted on the
form and forwarded to the appropriate city employee
or commissioner to resolve. A copy is forwarded to the
mayor to record and ensure the complaint was resolved.
Whitmore has implemented job descriptions for
every city employee and is working with the city attor-
ney to develop policies and procedures for daily tasks.
The public works department will begin painting
street names on seawalls in Key Royale.
A trustee from the Manatee County Jail is wash-
ing all the city's vehicles weekly at no cost to the city.
Whitmore hired a cleaning service to clean city build-
ings. Both measures will free public works department
employees for other jobs.
The Manatee County Commission has agreed on
how they will fund the renovation of the city's baseball
field, which-should be completed by September. The
city plans to enter into an interlocal agreement with the
Anna Maria Fire District to install a well and irrigate
both the field and the district's grounds.
The city meeting notification sign has been re-
moved due to city hall construction, but notification
will be posted on the bulletin board in the library and
on a sandwich board at True Value Home Hardware in
the Holmes Beach Shopping Center.
Whitmore has contacted Island artists including
Woody Candish, Robert Reiber, Richard Thomas and
Linda Molto concerning creating.art work for the new city
hall. She also plans to display art work by members of the
Artists Guild of Anna Maria Island and the Anna Maria
Island Art League throughout the new building.
The city hall complex is 15 percent complete
with footings in, columns poured and foundation
stem walls up. The slab prep work is in progress with
electrical, plumbing, mechanical and fire sprinklers
Site revisions for the new 58th Street are com-
pleted and have been approved by the Southwest

grant from the West Coast Inland Navigation District.
City plans for recovery from a disaster
By Pat Copeland
Post-disaster recovery and redevelopment plan
isn't a term that rolls off the tongue lightly but if your
home or business is destroyed in a storm, these words
may be music to your ears.
Members of the Holmes Beach Disaster Recovery
Task Force recently met with Gerald Smelt of the
Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council to begin work
on the city's plan. The plan is required by Florida stat-
ute and the city's comprehensive plan.
Committee members include Commission Chair-
man Don Maloney, Police Chief Jay Romine, Planning
Commission Chairman Sue Normand, Public Works
Supervisor Joe Duennes and West Side/Anna Maria
Fire Chief Andy Price.
The state's goals are to eliminate inappropriate and
unsafe development in coastal areas and encourage
local governments to adopt legislation that will reduce
the threat to human life and control redevelopment in
order to protect the coastal environment.
The comprehensive plan's goal is to reduce or
eliminate the exposure of human life and public prop-
erty to natural hazards.
"Last year we put in for a grant through the Florida
Department of Community Affairs to do an Island-wide
post-disaster redevelopment plan," Smelt explained. "As
part of that, we'll work with each of the three communi-
ties looking at their individual characteristics and-needs,
but the basic plan will be Island wide."
Smelt said his first tasks will be to develop Island-
wide existing and future land use maps and meet with
the local planning agencies of each city to determine
what they would change or improve if a disaster de-
stroys their city or any part of it.
"For example, if the non-conforming uses are wiped
out, how would you want them replaced?" Smelt noted. -
Maloney asked what committee members should
do in the meantime.
"Look at your comprehensive plan," Smelt replied.
"It lays out the procedures. You should also look at
how you would want the city to change in a post-disas-
According to the comprehensive plan, the commit-
tee is to develop:
Criteria to distinguish
cleanup and repair activities and long-term redevelop-
Procedures for cooperating with the county and
public utility providers on the removal, relocation or struc-
tural modification of damaged and unsafe infrastructure.
Procedures to limit repairs in areas that suffer repeat
damage in disasters to those necessary to ensure the im-
mediate health, safety and welfare of the general public.
Post-disaster duties include:
Hear preliminary damage reports to identify im-
mediate repairs and cleanup action.
Identify areas of minor, moderate and major dam-
Authorize immediate repairs and cleanup neces-
sary to protect the public health safety and welfare.
If necessary, recommend that the city commis-
sion adopt a temporary building.moratorium.
Smelt said he will also be meeting with Island
elected officials, Manatee County emergency manage-
ment officials and representatives of the Southwest
Florida Water Management District and the Tampa and
Sarasota Bay National Estuary Programs to aid in de-
veloping the plan.

avoid becoming a statistic
Mention tropical disturbances or hurricanes like
Donna or Andrew or Opal and everyone has a story:
"We walked down flooded Gulf Drive to watch
the storm-driven waves crash through the broken
glass fronting the old Trader Jack's Restaurant in
Bradenton Beach. The waves crested somewhere
inside the building and washed onto the road in a
rush of swirling water."
S"We were awakened to a peaceful sound with
frightening overtones: the gentle lapping of waves -
against the side of our bayfront house as the storm
surge, greater than anticipated, inundated the Island."
Storm stories are as"numerous as the people on the
Island. And therein lies the biggest problem we've got
to face when not if, but when Southwest
'Florida's own Hurricane Andrew comes calling.
There are too many of us living in too many vul-
We've been playing Lotto with our houses on
the beaches, going against the odds year after year
with our property and savings lodged on a barrier
island that is not meant for humans in times of high
winds and waves.
Hurricane experts warn us not to test the elements
with our lives.
We've all watched the devastation that Homestead
and Cutler Ridge suffered after their own version of
Hell, Hurricane Andrew, came ashore in 1992. The $20
billion in damages, 200,000 left homeless and 15 dead
are a grim reminder of what can happen here.
Closer to our Gulffront homes, Hurricane Opal
cleared a swath of shoreline in the Panhandle in 1995.
Yet despite the doom and gloom of what you will
look at and read in this special hurricane section, it
won't hit home until your house, belongings and price-
less mementos of 10 or 20 or 50 years are scattered
across what's left of the neighborhood.
But don't let objects or property take the place of
When the warnings come, take heed and leave.
Don't think to stay and save your property.
Disaster preparedness officials have probably the
best answer to anyone who elects to stay on the Island
in the face of a major storm.
They ask for names of those remaining, and names
of next of kin so they can be contacted to identify the
When hurricane warnings come to this part of the
coast, leave the Island as soon as possible.
Don't become a statistic.

Editor's Note: This young letter writer participated in
an Anna Maria Elementary School program in which stu-
dents "shadowed" business people. She had this to say
about her "job" at Gulf Drive Cafe in Bradenton Beach.
Thank you for inviting me to spend the day with
you. I learned so much about the restaurant.
My favorite part was showing people their seats. I
really appreciate it a whole lot. I like to flip the eggs high
into the air, make food, serve people, clean up, use the
computer and just everything was great.
Kara Kennedy, fifth grade
Thanks to AMFD
A special thank you to the Anna Maria Fire District
and the Island ambulance staff of Manatee County's
Emergency Medical Services.
On Sunday, April 26, they responded to a call from St.
Bernard Catholic Church. We had just come out of 9:30
Mass and my husband had a near blackout. We later found
out it was caused by a severe drop in blood pressure.
The gentlemen responded so quickly and efficiently
and got him to the emergency room very quickly. He
was released several hours later.
We are very grateful to all who helped. Thank you.
Cele Van Winkle, Holmes Beach
Mayor responds to letter
It is not my habit to respond to letters to the editor. I
feel that Willam Smith's letter must by responded to. He
stated that in Holmes Beach elections are won by money
and the amount of advertising used during the election. He
also states that most of the mayoral candidates are not
qualified to hold the office.
I've lived on this Island for 30 years and served on
the Holmes Beach Commission for seven years. I feel
qualified to serve my city.
My committee of Holmes Beach citizens did help
raise money for my campaign because in order to get
your platform out, you must advertise. I was honored at
the amount of money that was raised for me and I make
no apologies. Working on the commission and working
in health care since 1977 has helped me gain the support
I received for my election.
I ran a professional election with not one negative
word regarding the candidates I opposed. If you did your
homework, you'd see that both my opponents attempted to
discredit me. I stand by the results of the election.

THOSE WERE THE BAYS
Part 13, The Secret Life of Marion Colman
by June Alder
TWO SHORT POEMS
Readers of this column will be
pleased to know that the papers of
Marion Colman, granddaughter of first
Anna Maria Island homesteader George
E. Bean, will soon be in the custody of
the Special Collections Department of
Boston University, her alma mater.
An alert alumnus of the university
- I wish I knew his identity sent a
copy of one of my columns about
Marion to university officials. As a re-
sult, the Assistant Director for Rare
Books wrote a note to the newspaper,
inquiring if there was a possibility Miss
Colman's papers could be donated to
The answer is: yes! With the per-
mission of Marion's cousin, ex-Islander
Miriam Rozeman, who cared for
Marion in her later years, a trove of her
manuscripts, letters and notes will soon
be on their way to Boston.
Much more could be written about
Marion's life on the Island, but for now,
this series will conclude with two of her
most charming poems. The first has
appeared in print locally from time to
time over the years. The second has
never been published before, as far as
her friends and family know.
Spring in South Florida
You say we do not have a springtime
Or that we always have it? Ah, you're
The less spectacular is not less dear -
Today I heard a cardinal's liquid song.
A subtle change in scent and coloring
Is now discernible to watchful folk;
Afield all blue with lupine burgeoning,
A bronzy haze of tassel on the oak.
Tomorrow, orange blossoms on the air
And flocks of tiny birdlings wheeling
And oh, the rapture far beyond com-
A seagrape tree all gold against the sky!
So do not say that spring is always here,
And please say not we have no spring at
The less spectacular is not less dear.
Hark! There's the chuck-will's-widow's
I once had a pet, a lovely bird
So tame as bird can be
And all day long its song was heard
A strain that was sweet to me.
But one sad day, in thoughtless play
I shot a cruel dart
It touched, alas, my pretty pet
and made the life blood start.
I tried to help the creature dear,
I whistled, but all in vain.
My bird had flown far, far away
And never would trust again.
I bnce had a friend, a lovely maid
Whose eyes did softly shine.
Her fair, white arms oft drew me close,
Her soft cheek pressed againstt mine.
But one sad day I know not how -
I uttered a thoughtless word.
It struck the heart of my gentle friend
Till all her spirit stirred.
In vain I tried to make amends,
In vain I called her name,
But the more my blundering tongue
The wider the breach became.
I miss the love of thatfriend of mine
As I miss the sweet bird's lay
0 must my heart forever lack?
Would thou mayst tell me, Nav!

'Frisbee with a string' may help save lives
By Pat Copeland ..
Islander Reporter ....
What looks like a Frisbee with a string attached? -. '.
It's called a ResQ Disc and it's the Anna Maria Fire .
District's new tool to save potential drowning victims. .
Anna Maria/West Side Fire Chief Andy Price said the ':. ...
manufacturer sent the department a dozen free discs. '
"We think it's great," Price said. "We've put them
on all of our vehicles. You just throw the disc to the
person in the water and the rope unwinds. The person
grabs the disc and you pull him in using the rope." .
Drowning claims the lives of approximately M..
7,800 people in the United States every year. That
number climbs to 200,000 world-wide. Most victims
are good swimmers.
The discs come in two sizes. The 14-inch disc has
125 feet of line and can support a person weighing 200
pounds. The 10-inch disc has 50 feet of line and can
support a person weighing 100 pounds.
The disc was invented by Bob Hyde of Crystal
River and is the product of two years of intensive
evaluations and testing by law enforcement and rescue
personnel, said literature from Save A Life Disc, that ..:-, .
accompanied the discs.... .......
"Before the end of this year, our goal is to donate "
a ResQ Disc to every police, fire and rescue department Anna Maria/West Side Fire Chief Andy Price shows how easy it is to throw a ResQ Disc, a new device to save
in the entire United States," CEO Dr. Thomas Sytko, potential drowning victims. Islander Photo: Pat Copeland.
said in the literature.
Gardeners should plan to bring their favorite tools
to Manatee Community College Saturday, June 13, for
a community planting of a model Florida Yard Dem-
Part of the Florida Yard & Neighborhoods Pro-
gram, the model yard at MCC will serve as an educa-
tional tool to show residents how low-maintenance,
aesthetically pleasing landscaping can reduce the need
of fertilizers and pesticides while also cutting down on
harmful pollutants entering Sarasota Bay.
The site for the new landscape will be the Stephen
J. Korcheck Student Services Center on the MCC
Bradenton Campus, 5840 26th St. W. Planting
will take place from 8 a.m. to noon, and refresh-
ments will be provided.
The project is a joint effort between MCC,
the EARTH club of the campus and the Sarasota
Bay National Estuary Program. EARTH Club
faculty advisory Carl Keeler provided in initia-
tion, organization and $5,000 toward the project.
The Sarasota Bay Program sponsored $1,500 in
plants for the demonstration landscape.

Works in wood and metal, and other media, by Is-
land sculptor Woody Candish will be on display dur-
ing the month of June at the Island Branch Library,
5701 Marina Drive, Holmes Beach.
Well-known in artist circles on and off the Island,
Candish developed his love of sculpture as a child
strolling the banks of the Potomac River with his late
mother. As an adult he incorporated his travels into his
art, utilizing, for instance, the black sand of Hawaii or
objects found in San Francisco as ornaments in his
"Sculpting is a meditation in the marriage of ob-
jects, the adventure of discovery and the surprises and
wonder as the sculpture completes itself," says
"Beginning with a thought or a feeling," he muses,
"the work begins to take on a personality that 'tells' me
when it is completed. But never 'finished.' Those who
view the sculptures give life to the forms. The artist
merely creates a bond that is the life and future of a

Have a nice day
Last week, the Rev. Allan Bazzy, owner of
Bradenton Beach Marina, told his account executive at
The Islander Bystander to give Publisher Bonner
Presswood a message. He said, "Tell her to shove that
newspaper up her -."
This was in reply to the newspaper's policy not to
allow a five percent discount on pre-payment for adver-
tising at of one of Bazzy's marina businesses, Shrimp
The restaurant has not been extended credit or a
courtesy pre-pay discount since the previous operator
deserted his lease and an overdue account at the news-
paper, although the debt was finally resolved by Bazzy.
We tend to look at these situations as Florida
Power & Light might. You own the property and the
business, you want continued service, you pay the debt.
So, don't look for any restaurant specials or the
entertainment listings for Shrimp Louie's in this news-
paper. As long as The Rev. Bazzy behaves in this man-
ner toward employees of the newspaper, he won't be
afforded any courtesies here such as advertising.
However, we will continue to investigate com-
plaints regarding the marina at the pleading of area
residents and allegations that the restaurant operation
violates restrictions imposed by the Bradenton Beach
City Commission including but not limited to: no out-
door entertainment, no music or TV, no lighted signs,
no outdoor dining except in a screened area under roof.
Regulations imposed by the state regarding a water-
front site will be pursued as will all complaints includ-
ing ADA standards, etc., etc.
Bazzy clearly owes an apology to Kim Durocher,
a hard-working sales representative who tries to ac-
commodate every request made by her clients and par-
ticularly Bazzy's manager daughter, but we won't be
holding our collective breath.

The left side of the menu looks every bit as entic-

If you haven't made it over to Cortez to dine
dockside at the oldest operating fish house in the vil-
lage, you really should.
You'll find a grouper sandwich at nearly half the
price of more popular Island restaurants. At just $4.95
including fries, and guaranteed fresh from the Gulf, it's

Braderni.r, B- .:r,
We sampled a conch salad appetizer that was simi-
lar to the best gazpacho ever tasted but with the added
attraction of lots and lots of tasty conch meat.
Mmmmm. It was a "chalkboard" special but we can
hope it repeats soon.
Another special on our visit was a soft-shell crab
sandwich for $5.95. It sounded great, but with our ap-
petites maxed out, we opted for soft shells to go. Four
scrumptious crabs (cleaned and prepped at a mere $4
each) made their way into a skillet at home for dinner.
Not having tried the entire menu, but wishing I
could, you may be tempted by fresh pompano, pan
roasted with olive oil and garlic and served with cole
slaw, fries or cheese grits for $9.95, lunch or dinner.
Other items come in small or large portions, in-
cluding grouper, oysters from the Florida Panhandle
"deep fried to a tender, golden brown," Gulf shrimp
and sea scallops, either fried or sauteed.
Stone crab aficionados should be pleased to note
that although season officially ended May 15, Star Fish
still includes them on the menu. You'll get a huge por-
tion, one and 1/4 pounds, for $16.95.
And for fans of the Cortez staple, mullet, this may be
one of the only restaurants "herebouts" with smoked
mullet on the menu. Star smokes it and serves it up hot or
cold with cheese grits for $4.95. And you can't beat that.
The only thing missing from the menu is dessert. A
slice of key lime pie would top off this Cortez menu in
grand style, so we'll cross our fingers for the next visit.
Plum Taylor's pecan pie "wouldn't hurt none" either.
If you're not in the mood for the "warm," open air,
dockside dining, you may of course, get it all to go.
Or peruse the market for something to cook at
home, as we did. Star Fish Company offers swim-
mingly fresh varieties of local seafood and lots of
sauces and mixes to enhance your.recipes. We picked
up some garlic spray, which I can highly recommend.
A bottle contains the equivalent of 120 cloves of gar-
lic and it's fresh and poignant.
We made 10 sprays over the soft-shell crabs before
lightly breading them with a mixture of flour and Ital-
ian bread crumbs. We then sauteed the critters in a 50-
50 blend of butter and olive oil but very little of
each. We splashed the pan with sauterne wine and
lemon juice at the finish, crisping up the outsides.
Not bad at all. And some of Nellie and Joe's spicy,
-tangy Key Lime Calypso Sauce topped off those crabs

Tip nips Kiwanis, 7-5
Tip of the Island rode a strong pitching effort from
Peter Dowling to record a close, 7-5 win over Kiwanis
at Tuesday night's final Major League game for Anna
Maria Little League. Dowling pitched a complete
game, giving up six hits while striking out nine to get
the pitching win.
Tip jumped out to an early 5-0 lead, scoring two
runs in the first and three runs in the second with the
big blow coming on a double by Luther Sasser.
Dowling showed everyone that runs were going to be
tough to come by as he struck out the side in the
Kiwanis bottom of the second to keep them scoreless
to that point.
Kiwanis started chipping away at the five-run defi-
cit in the bottom of the third when Bobby Gibbons
reached base on a fly ball to right that dropped in for a
Tip error. After Gibbons moved to second and third on
passed balls,'Aaron Stark plated him with the first
Kiwanis run with a single to make the score 5-1.
Evan Wolfe then came through with an RBI double
to score Stark, cutting the Kiwanis deficit to three runs
with a 5-2 score. Wolfe moved to third on the play, but
got stranded there, as Ryan Keller hit a blooper to right
that Kyle Dale made a nice running catch on to end the
Kiwanis held Tip scoreless in the top of the fourth
when, after Joey Mattay reached on an error, Stark
threw him out trying to steal second on a Sasser
strikeout. Dowling then grounded out to end the inning.
In the Kiwanis half of the inning, Michael Richards
led off with a walk and moved to second on a passed
ball. Richards moved to third on a single by Zack Hill.
Hill moved to second on a strikeout by Stark bringing
Gibbons to the plate. Gibbons responded with a single,
scoring Richards and Hill, making the score 5-4 with
Gibbons moving to second on the throw home.

SAVE FOR HURRICANE SEASON: JUNE 1-NOV. 30,1,998
Fi F'1 :
'Average' storm season predicted this year
By Paul Roat
An Atlantic hurricane forecaster is predicting an
"average" storm season for 1998, with 10 tropical
storms forming between June 1 and November 30. Of
those storms, six will become hurricanes, and two will
be major storms with winds of more than 111 mph.
Dr. William Gray, a storm forecaster from Colo-
rado State University, bases his predictions on a vari-
ety of weather conditions from around the globe. Al-
though still smarting from a botched prediction of
much more activity that actually occurred last year,
Gray is usually very accurate in his prognostications.
His stumble last year and a curse that was echoed
throughout the nation can be blamed on El Nino.
El Nino is a weather phenomenon that begins in the
eastern Pacific Ocean and has wide-ranging repercussions
across the planet. El Nino is a warming of the Pacific
Ocean waters and a change in barometric pressure. When
El Nino is in place in the Pacific, upper level winds over
the Atlantic tend to shear off the tops of tropical storms,
preventing their development into hurricanes.
El Nino also causes warmer winter weather in the
United States, and wetter weather in the Southeast.
The 1997-98 El Nino was the strongest ever. For Flo-
ridians, it spurred the wettest weather ever earlier this year,
with an unprecedented amount of rainfall drenching
Southwest Florida in December, January and February.
Gray and his research team are predicting that El
Nino will be mostly dissipated by the start of the active
part of the hurricane season in mid-August.
"We're still watching the El Nino very closely,"
Gray said. "and we will have to keep a close eye on
what the lingering effects of El Nino might be. In the
last season, it produced some weather anomalies like
the dry conditions in West Africa that had an impact on
the hurricane season and on our forecasts."
Among the things Gray and his team monitor to
make storm predictions are weather patterns in Africa.
When the region there is wetter than usual, hurricane
formation in the Atlantic is generally increased. With
El Nino, Africa is drier than usual, helping prompt what
Gray calls an "average" Atlantic hurricane season.
The prediction of 10 storms is judged to be aver-
age for the Atlantic and Caribbean; a typical year
brings 9.3 tropical storms, 5.8 hurricanes with 2.1 in-
Other factors Gray and his group take into account-
in the forecast include water temperatures in the north,
east and tropical regions of the Atlantic, a high-pres-
sure ridge located near the Azores in the North Atlan-
tic, temperature and pressure readings in West Africa,
Caribbean sea-level pressure readings, temperature
readings about 54,000 feet above Singapore and wind
speed globally at about 40,000 feet.
Although El Nino suppressed hurricane activity
last year, statistics show that the period between 1995-
97 was still the busiest three-year period for hurricane
activity on record. The three-year span generated 39
named storms and 23 hurricanes, 13 of which were
intense. Based on that record, Gray maintains his
theory that the Atlantic is entering an ear spanning
many decades of increased hurricane activity which
will include particularly intense, major hurricanes.
How hurricanes came to be named
Andrew, Hugo and Camille are common names to
hurricane watchers, but the naming of storms is a rela-
tively new aspect in the science of studying storms.
An Australian weatherman, Clement Wragge, was
the first to use female names in describing tropical
storms in the late 1800s, although he also named sev-
El Nino has been the scourge of the nation for
the past year, taking the dubious credit for mud
slides in Malibu, torrential rain and tornadoes in the
southeast and flooding in the midwest.
Particularly hard-hit has been Florida. From
September 1997 to April of this year, the state has re-
ceived two Presidential Disaster Declarations. A
total of 57 counties received the disaster declaration,
including Manatee and Sarasota.
Statewide, El Nino caused a loss of more than
$100 million in current and future crops. Private
insured losses caused by the weather phenomenon
will exceed $200 million, and individual and pub-
lic assistance programs in the wake of the storms
will result in another $193 million. Almost $6
million in housing assistance has been provided
for 6,000 families, and more than $3 million has
been awarded to families and individuals for needs
not covered by insurance.
eral after politicians whom he particularly disliked.
Meteorologists in the U.S. military picked up the prac-
tice during World War II, naming storms after their
wives and girlfriends.
In 1951, weather officials began to use names to
designate storms, using common military titles of Able,
As of late April, there were 46 El Nino-related
fatalities and 275 injuries. More than 13,000 homes
sustained damage, and more than 5,000 were totally
destroyed. State and Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency Disaster Recovery Centers were
opened and assisted more than 4,800 people, with
more than 104,000 meals served.
And El Nino effects are not over yet. Counties
that rely on private wells will continue to have
problems with safe drinking water. Septic systems
that were inundated with El Nino-driven flooding
are not fully operational, and in a stinging note,
mosquitoes spawning in flooding areas are ex-
pected to be particularly vicious this summer.
A final bit of good news, though weather
forecasters predict El Nino has started to diminish
and things will be back to normal later this summer.
Unfortunately, the lack of El Nino's presence usu-
ally spurs Atlantic tropical storm activity.
Baker, Charlie and the like. Two years later, female
names became the norm, with the first two hurricanes
dubbed Alice and Barbara.
Complaints. poured into the Weather Bureau from
women upset that they alone were being singled out in
describing wicked weather, but the practice continued
until 1978, when hurricanes in the eastern Pacific were
alternately named for men and women. In 1979, Atlan-
tic hurricanes followed suit with Hurricane Bob.
Six bisexual lists of hurricane names were devel-
oped by the World Meteorological Organization. The
names were short, easy-to-remember and used names
from three languages: English, French and Spanish. To
receive a name, a tropical low-pressure center must
develop at least into a full-fledged tropical storm with
wind speeds between 39 and 73 mph.
The lists are repeated every six years, although the
names of killer storms are retired from use. Name's of
the 1998 Atlantic hurricanes are:

Hurricane safety tips
Right now, before the season begins:
Enter the hurricane season prepared. Recheck
your supply of boards, tools, batteries, non-perishable
foods and other equipment you will need to secure your
home and prepare yourself for evacuation from the
area, if necessary.
Prepare or update your Hurricane Survival Kit.
The kit should include: medicines (at least a two-week
supply); special dietary foods that are non-perishable;
blankets, pillows, sleeping bags; flashlight and batter-
ies; portable radio and batteries; extra clothing; light-
weight folding chairs, cots; personal items; infant ne-
cessities; quiet games or favorite toys for children;
important papers; and snacks.
Develop a plan for where you will go if you need
to leave the Island. Friends on the mainland or hurri-
cane shelter locations should be identified and a route
to the safe shelter plotted.
If hurricane advisories list Southwest Florida as a
threatened region, pay attention to local weather
broadcasts for further updates.
Fill your vehicle with gasoline and be sure to
check the oil, tires and wiper blades.
Gather your Hurricane Survival Kit.
Moor your boat securely or evacuate it to a safe

with tape or storm shutters. Remember, damage to

small windows is mostly caused by wind-driven debris;
damage to larger windows may come from debris as
well as wind pressure.
Bring indoors all outdoor furniture, plantings,
lawn ornaments and anything else that can be easily
moved. Secure outdoor objects that can't be taken in-
side. Garbage cans, garden tools, toys, signs; porch
furniture and a number of other harmless items become
missiles in hurricane winds.
Stock up on drinking water. Bathtubs, jugs,
bottles or pots can be used, or buy bottled water. Re-
member, water service may be disturbed for days or
longer after a hurricane. You should have one gallon of
water per person per day, and you should have at least
a three-day supply.
Stock up on non-perishable food. Remember that
electricity may be off for days or longer and cooking may
be difficult, so make plans to prepare food or have food
that can be eaten cold. Check to make sure you have a can
opener that can be operated without electricity.
Check all battery-powered equipment and stock
up on batteries. Hurricane experts are recommending
you not use candles due to the threat of fire. An
untended flashlight won't start a fire, but a candle or
Stock up on cleanup materials: mops, buckets,
towels, cleansers and the like.
Make arrangements for boarding your pet. Re-
member, shelters do not allow pets, so animals will
have to be kept with friends or. at a vet.
If hurricane advisories list Southwest Florida as a
possible landfall for a hurricane, begin making
preparations for the storm:
Board all windows, or secure with tape or secu-
Be prepared to leave. Remember, traffic leaving
the Island will be worse than you can imagine. Hurri-
cane authorities predict upwards of 12 to 17 hours to
evacuate the Island, so plan to leave early.
Watch or listen to local news broadcasts for shel-
If officials order an evacuation:
Turn off electricity and water to your house.
Turn off gas valves at the appliance, not at the
Let friends and relatives know where you're going.
Check with neighbors to make sure they have a
safe, timely ride out of the area.
After the hurricane passes:
Be patient. Access to damaged areas will be lim-
ited and you may not be able to return to your home
immediately. Roads may be blocked by trees and live
power lines, and emergency crews will need time to
make the area safe.

Writing reaps rewards for second graders
By Kevin Cassidy
My second grade class at Orange Ridge Bullock
Elementary School participated in a year-long writing
activity in which they wrote to and exchanged friendly
letters with students in Kathy Grandstadt's second
grade class at Anna Maria Elementary School. We re-
cently culminated this activity ivith a field trip to Anna
Maria Island to meet and interact with our Island pen
pals on Thursday and Friday, May 21 and 22.
On Thursday, Mrs. Grandstadt's class joined Or-
ange Ridge students from Mrs. Palmateer's class and
my class on a field trip to Leffis Key where they en-
joyed the boardwalk, viewing and identifying birds,
fish and all of the native plants. Next they dug in the
shallows, hoping to find some lost treasures.
They waded onto the grass flats with Islander Gib
Bergquist, who for the third consecutive year, helped
the second graders net and identify juvenile shrimp,
crabs, fish and other sea creatures. This.was by far the
children's favorite of the day's activities.
The following day, my class travelled again to
Anna Maria, to visit their pen pals in Mrs. Grandstadt's
class at the Anna Maria Elementary-School. After they
got the preliminary hellos and such out of the way, they
teamed up with their pen pals for a couple of hands-on
First they ventured to the playground for a scaven-
ger hunt, in which they worked together to find items
ranging from a bird feather to something hollow,
among other things. R.J. Anderson and his pen pal/
partner, Kelsey Taylor, were the first to find all of the
items, thanks to their great team work.
Next the children came back inside for a snack of
cookies and juice before they got started on the next fun
project building the Leaning Tower of Pisa out of
marshmallows and toothpicks. The object was to build
the highest free-standing structure. Cassandra Delacruz
and her pen pal/partner, Gabrielle Westerman, were the
proud winners of that contest.
The last and best activity of the day according to
the students was a complimentary lunch at the Sandbar

Hold your breath on Orimulsion, but not shrimping
By Bob Ardren
"Trust me on this one. It may be a little dangerous
for you, but at least you'll be comforted knowing that
I'm making a lot of money." That, in a nutshell, is
Florida Power & Light's pitch to allow it to use
Orimulsion, a controversial Venezuelan fuel in Florida.
Notice that FPL's old line about "saving our
customer's money" isn't heard much anymore, probably
because you and I will never see any of that money. In-
stead we'll all "benefit" from being FPL's guinea pigs as
it strives to make more money for stockholders.
The real benefit Islanders are enjoying is having a
group like ManaSota-88 looking out for us on this is-
sue. Perhaps the oldest rule in journalism is to "follow
the money," and you can be sure that FPL is where the
money is on this issue.
Support ManaSota-88 any way you can on
Orimulsion. Right now that means contacting the
Governor and Cabinet and letting them know you
don't appreciate putting our environment and health
in danger for the benefit of FPL stockholders. Please
tell them to vote "no" on Orimulsion.

for the trip.
That compares with 121 vessels making the trip
last year with 592 sailors on board. The initial race, run
out of Sarasota in 1994, had a fleet of 84 boats.
Interestingly, the federal government has stopped
trying to put a halt to the event, not that it ever worked,
and now actually issues a Treasury Department license
in a vain attempt to convince us that somehow it's still
in control of the situation.
But in a conversation with a local boater two weeks
ago who's made several trips to Cuba lately, the huge
Marina Hemingway west of Havana was recently at
least three quarters full. Nearly all of them, this sailor
told me, were American boats.
Changing coral reefs
Scientists once thought that coral reefs were like
monuments that changed little, if at all. But as a result
of recent studies at the Dry Tortugas, where human
activity has been minimal, those beliefs are changing.
The Dry Tortugas, home of Fort Jefferson, are lo-
cated about 60 miles west of Key West.
Lots of boaters from this area visit Fort Jefferson and
the Dry Tortugas for the fishing and the isolation. It's also
a great place to dive and, as you pace around inside the
fascinating fort, to brush up on your American history.
In 1882, Alexander Agassiz used a glass-bottom
bucket to chart the coral reefs throughout the Dry
Tortugas at the request of the federal government. As
those charts are being compared with recent maps of
the coral reefs, big changes can be seen.
But not all of them are bad and even the ones that
are, aren't man-made. How's that for a surprise?
For example, Agassiz mapped 108 acres of
elkhorn coral virtually on Fort Jefferson's doorstep,
most of which is now gone. Now less than a tenth of
an acre is left.
But, and this is a big but, a nearby area mapped
by Agassiz as hard bottom is now sprouting thickets
of staghorn coral, a slightly different variety.
Frankly, scientists at the University of Miami be-
lieve that the destruction to the earlier forests of

coral came not that long ago.
They believe it was Hurricane Donna that swept
through the area in 1960 and caused the destruction.
So for a change, and a pleasant one at that, we can't
blame this damage on "human beans," as Al Capp
used to put it.
Both boat and light plane trips to Fort Jefferson
are available from Key West and both are well worth
the money for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. As
someone who's sailed through that area several
times and stopped to visit, my advice is to never pass
up a chance to visit there.
It's something you'll remember forever.
Let's help Mote
Mote Marine Laboratory is looking for help from
anglers. If you catch a fish with one of Mote's tags lo-
cated next to its dorsal fin, please record the tag num-
-ber along with the species, size of the fish, date and
location of the capture.
That's regardless of whether you keep or throw
back the fish.
Then call Mote at 1-800-388-3966, a line dedicated
to gathering this kind of information. As incentive, if
you do turn in this valuable information, Mote will put
your name in its lottery, which awards a cash prize to
helpers once a year.
As we approach the full moons of summer, I'd like
to hear from Islanders who dip net their own shrimp.
Just give me a call at 955-4960, and if you get the
machine, leave a number and I'll get back to you..
See you next week.

Tarpon time comes again to Anna Maria Island
By Capt. Mike Heistand
Tarpon are finally here. We spotted a school of what
looked to be 100 fish Sunday, and they're not only big but
hungry. Other action includes snook, redfish and trout in
the backwater, and grouper and snapper offshore. King-
fish action is starting to slow, though.
Dick at the Rod and Reel Pier reports action there
includes snook at night, with one a 39-inch monster, a
few cobia, mackerel, black drum and permit and pom-
pano on Saturday.
Annie's Bait & Tackle said that Capt. Zack on the
Dee Jay II said snook and redfish are in the bay and
huge mackerel are out in the Gulf. He's also bringing
in some cobia.
Capt. Jason Henzell and Capt. Kurt Morrison on
the Neva-Miss said he's catching gag grouper up to 20
pounds, lane and mangrove snapper up to four pounds,
still a few kingfish at about 12 pounds and amberjack
up to 35 pounds.
Carl at Perico Island Bait & Tackle said wade fish-
ers are doing good with trout and snook. Redfish are scat-
tered, he said, and offshore there are a few permit.
Capt. Mark Bradow said he's tarpon fishing al-
most every day now. In the bays, there are still plenty
of trout and redfish to be caught.
On my boat Magic we're starting to find some tar-
pon, jumping one this week and we've seen several
others. There are still lots of snook and reds and we're
also catching a few nice-size flounder.
Capt. Thom Smith at Angler's Repair said he's
getting reds and snook, with most of those caught be-
ing of keeper size.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said tarpon have
finally arrived. Kingfish action is starting to slow a
little, but there are still a few cobia around. In the back-
water, snook fishing is peaking right now.
Capt. Glenn Corder said he's getting good
catches of gag grouper still in-the 20-pound range and
plenty of snapper on offshore wrecks.
Mark at Captain's Marina said charter boats there
are bringing in snook, redfish and trout, with limit
catches most days with Capt. Rick Gross and Capt.
