More Holmes Beach rental plans considered


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
A cat has only nine lives but Holmes Beach's pro-
posed rental ordinance seems to have an unlimited sup-
ply. It just keeps creeping up.
Commissioners plan to consider a new proposal
by Commissioner Roger Lutz and a revised proposal
by Commissioner Luke Courtney at their next work
session June 18.
According to the proposed ordinance residential
rentals would be limited to 30 days in the R-l and R-
3 districts and to 14 days in the R-2 district. Accord-
ing to other ordinances, seven-day rentals are per-
mitted in the R-4 district and 30-day rentals are per-
mitted 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. The ordinance also makes renting in
a residential district a permitted accessory use. Grand-
father status was included in the ordinance but was to
be eliminated after five years.
Courtney's suggestion was to adopt the ordinance
with two changes eliminate the five-year sunset pro-
vision for grandfathering and substitute mandatory regis-
tration of nonconformities with a specific cut-off date.
Lutz suggested adopting the ordinance with
Courtney's suggestions but sunset only single-family
residences after five years.
"The other thing we can add is that if anybody
thinks he's getting-a raw deal due to the nature of his
case or his neighborhood, he can petition for an excep-
tion on a case-by-case basis," Lutz added.


Resident, property manager and Realtor T. Dolly
Young asked Lutz how he would deal with single fam-
ily residences that will be sunsetted that are on the same
street with duplexes that will be grandfathered.
Lutz said those owners could apply for the excep-
tion he mentioned.
"Here's how it works," Lutz explained. "If we pass
this, before anybody can sue the city, he has to come
here.180 days before he sues us and give us a chance
to fix it. If he doesn't come here, he can't sue us. If he
doesn't get up here within a year after this passes, he
forever loses his right to complain."
Lutz then asked Young to propose a solution.
"The city has to face reality, that there is an ordinance

Yea or nay, get those beach easement letters mailed


Anna Maria City residents living along the shore
should have all received letters from Manatee
County asking them to sign an easement to allow a
beach renourishment project to extend onto the
city's beaches as far north as Bean Point.
Manatee County Environmental Management
Department's Jack Gorzeman told The Islander By-
stander that the letters are all out and a response is
requested.
Easements are the first step in the process of
renourishing the eroding shoreline of Anna Maria.
Residents voted to request inclusion in the next
phase of the Island-wide beach renourishment
project in two to three years, but Gulffront property
owners must sign the easement or the project will be
either scrapped or scaled back. Gorzeman said.
To date, very few responses have been received.
He added that Gulffront property owners in
Bradenton Beach and Holmes Beach had already
signed easements prior to the renourishment project
there in 1993.
The easements are needed to allow sand to be
pumped onto residents' properties to "provide a
smooth transition from your property to the restored
beach," according to the letter.


The 127 beachfront property owners in Anna
Maria City are asked to sign the easement, have it
witnessed and notarized and send it back to Mana-
tee County.
Gorzeman said the easement and accompanying
erosion control line "establishes public and private
property. You're not looking at a taking situation"
by the state, he added.
The question of easements is only one hurdle
that must be overcome for the Island's next phase of
beach renourishment to become reality.
Gorzeman said federal approval of adding Anna
Maria to the rest of the renourishment project must be
obtained. Also. federal, state and local funding must be
authorized for the estimated $9.3 million project.
The Anna Maria City portion of the project will
cost about S3 million. Gorzeman said, and would ex-
tend from the Holmes Beach-Anna Maria city lim-
its to Bean Point. Sand will come from offshore
"borrow" sites thousands of feet from shore and will
be pumped onto the beaches.
This will be the second beach renourishment
project on the Island and, if Anna Maria joins in, the
first Islandwide sand addition. In 1993, 2.3 million
cubic yards of sand were pumped on Island beaches.


from 13th Street South in Bradenton Beach to 76th
Street in Holmes Beach.
In February 1996, voters in Anna Maria en-
dorsed inclusion in the next beach renourishment
cycle by a 60 percent vote.

Holmes Beach to vote on GTE settlement again


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach city commissioners agreed to vote.
again on a GTE settlement order after a procedural
question arose at last week's meeting.
A question about the public hearing on the settle-
ment proposal was raised by City Attorney Patricia
Petruff.
"At the conclusion of the public comment portion,
Mr. Maloney closed the public hearing instead of only
closing the public comment portion of the hearing,"
Petruff said. "At issue is whether or not any action
taken subsequent to the closing of the public hearing
was taken at a valid meeting of the commission."
Petruff said the agenda indicated that the meeting
would continue after the close of the public hearing and
commissioners would discuss the GTE proposal.
"Consequently, it is my opinion that the special meet-
ing was still in session and the public was on notice that
action was to be taken on the matter," Petruff noted.
However, to avoid any problems, Petruff recom-
mended that commissioners vote again at their next
meeting June 9.
"Since a public hearing was held, the commission
is not obligated to receive any additional public com-

ment on the matter," she concluded.
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.

that has been in place since 1975 that prohibits rentals of
less than 30 dayg except where the city created the R-4
overlay district," Young replied. "Then address the issue
of the A-i district and allow more rooms in the proper
zoning district and you won't have to act on complaints."
"The only thing you really told me was to add more
motel rooms," Lutz noted. "How would you protect
neighborhoods? There is a problem with people buy-
ing homes in predominately residential neighborhoods
and turning them into motel rooms."
Commission Chairman Don Maloney said tourists
seek residential rentals because the city has limited the
number of motel rooms in the A-i district. He said the


two issues should be considered together and the city
should hire a planner to make recommendations.
"The residential rentals don't take away from the
motels," motel owner and wife of Luke Courtney, Joy
Courtney, said. "If that were so, when there are only a
few people on the Island renting, I would be full. There
are other dynamics and choices to be made."
Courtney said owners of residential rentals should
be required to obtain the same licenses and obey the
same the restrictions as motels.
Motel owner Frank Davis said the county spends
$150,000 to $200,000 annually to promote the beach
communities.
"Get a planner," Davis said. "Study what the
county's doing to draw people here. Look at the avail-
able facilities to see if they match."
"I got killed in the election because I was the only
person who had the guts or the stupidity to stand up and


City wants to


swap use for


grant funds

Holmes Beach city commissioners requested per-
mission to use $11,949.92 of Hagen Foundation grant
funds for irrigation.
The city has $6,000 in Hagen Foundation grant
funds to irrigate the new baseball field but wants to in-
clude the city fields and city hall grounds in the project,
thus the extra cost. The $11,949 was earmarked for
lighting for the baseball field, a project that has been
nixed by commissioners.
The city also plans to enter into an interlocal agree-
ment with the West Side/Anna Maria Fire District to share
expenses for installing and maintaining the irrigation well.
The fire district will use the well to irrigate its grounds.
Danny Hopkins, director of Manatee County Parks
and Recreation, said the county will begin shooting eleva-
tions for the baseball field's construction within a week.
Hopkins said the majority of the construction will
be completed by Halloween, followed by a two-month
growing period for the grass. The field will be playable
by Jan. 15, 1999, he said.

say that if it is appropriate, we should consider more
motel rooms," Lutz noted. "If you hire a planner who
says to add motel rooms, it's not going to happen."
The consensus of the commission was not to hire
a planner.
Sheila Hurst said she has been living on the Island
for seven years and has had to move four times because
residences she rented year-round became motels or
seasonal rentals.
"Doesn't anyone in the audience here understand
what it's like to be a resident and have new neighbors
week to week?" Mayor Carol Whitmore asked. "I had
a famous baseball player one week, then it's been hell
ever since screaming kids at night, people partying
and having a great old time. We have to stop some-
where. I support Roger's proposal."
Maloney instructed Whitmore to investigate the
cost of hiring a planner.

Hear ye, he;
By Cynthia Finn
Islander Correspondent
You can go all the way to the pirates' treasure bank
that summer is coming and school is about to be out. Af-
ter all, Snooks Adams' Kids Day is on the-near horizon.
The 44th annual event, staged by the Anna Maria
Island Privateers for youngsters from throughout
Manatee County, will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Saturday, June 13, at the main pavilion of Bayfront
Park in Anna Maria City. All activities are free, includ-
ing a hot dog, pizza and soda lunch.
Snook Adams, a Cortez native, Holmes Beach resi-
dent and former chief of police for the city of Holmes
Beach, started Kids Day two score and then some years
ago to give the kids just out of school a kick-start on sum-
mer a day without folks and family pressure. Just fun.
He took a carload of kids to Coquina Beach that
first year with some sodas and hot dogs and the tradi-
tion continued and grew until it was so over-
whelming that he needed a helping hand.
Those feisty pirates of the community-minded,
action-oriented not-for-profit Privateers organization
were handed the Kids Day ball by Snooks in 1980, and
they have yet to miss a shot.
On hand at this festive start to summer vacation
will be the spruced-up pirate ship, the very frigate that
used to be anchored in Holmes Beach before some resi-
dents decided the treasure craft was an eyesore a
blight, you might say in or on our upscale mid-Is-
land stomping grounds.
By the way, that very ship has found a fine port the
other side of the Cortez Bridge in the village, yet the
pirates still like to call the Island their second home.
And these guys are polishing the port and starboard
brass in time for the Fourth of July parade they still
produce on our outer Island, followed by the daylong
family barbecue gala they present at the Anna Maria
Island Community Center.
But back to Kids Day. There will be more games
than you can shake a sword at, a treasure hunt, toy
prizes galore and a best-dressed, little pirate contest for
boys and girls, with judging by age group.
And for anyone who still doesn't know who

this weekend
The Anna Maria Island Privateers' fourth an-
nual Whitey Horton Memorial Golf Tournament is
this Saturday, June 6, at Palma Sola Golf Club. Cost
is $45 with the funds raised going to the annual
Whitey Horton scholarship.
Come on out for a good time and a good cause.
The "cannon start" will be at 1 p.m. Final registra-
tion will run from 11:30 a.m. to noon at the club.
Registration is $45 per person. The fee includes a
tasty Big John Barbecue and awards banquet fol-
lowipg the competition with non-players invited at
a cost of $10 per person.
In addition to team prizes and raffles, the out-
ing will offer putting, longest-drive and nearest-to-
pin contests. Some special surprises are not yet out
Sof the bag.
For registration or to make a donation to the
scholarship fund, contact John Swager, past presi-
dent, at 778-1238, or Rick Maddox, ruling matey,
at 794-2599.

Snooks Adams is, he'll be there, as always, humbly
happy to see all those smiling eyes of children who are
the main attraction this day and all days, if he still ran
the Island, er city.
Don't be looking for any man in fancy dress up on
his self-appointed pedestal look for the gentle man
on the sidelines, doing what he does best. And that
would be just giving back to his community, with no
payment voucher in his hand.
As for you big people, there's no hard feelings on
Kids Day and you're invited, too. With or without a child.
But if you're a big person and you want some luncheon
grub, you're asked to drop a coin in the donation bucket
to help fund the next Privateers' kids' effort.
To get there by land, take Pine Avenue in Anna
Maria City east to the bay. Go left on North Bay Bou-
levard and up and over the Humpback Bridge. Please
don't forget the stop sign, for there'll be kids and more


kids on yonder side. Bayfront Park is on your right, by
the bay, and you're bound to see some colorful gangs
of pirates, young'uns and that visiting schooner.
To get there by air or sea, call someone who knows
the way.
For information, call Privateer Commander Rick
Maddox, 794-2599, or Vice Pirate Mitch Stewart, 748-

Bradenton Beach motel expansion stalled


By Paul Roat
A neighborhood dispute has embroiled planners in
Bradenton Beach and has stalled a request for an addi-
tion to a motel.
Frank and Valerie Cacossa own the Sand & Sea
Motel at 2412-2416 Gulf Drive. They want to build a
four-unit addition to the north side of the building, and
have applied for a major development permit.before the
Bradenton Beach Planning and Zoning Commission.
However, the Cacossas have revoked a license to
the Sultenfuss family which allowed access to the
Sultenfuss vacation home on the Gulf, a license that has
apparently been in effect for more than 20 years. Mark
Sultenfuss and his attorney, Richard Pearlman, offered
a number of suggestions to allow continued access to
the house:
Have an alley/easement opened off the beach end
of 25th Street.
Grant a permanent easement across the Cacossa
property to the Sultenfusses.
Have the Cacossas provide parking spaces on
their property for the Sultenfusses.


Planners, stymied over what they can and cannot
grant in such a case, tabled the matter until June 10,
when City Attorney Alan Prather can counsel them on
legal ramifications of any action.
What would appear to be the easiest solution to the
problem, opening the alley/easement, appears ham-
pered by state regulations and cost factors.
Since the alley/easement city records are un-
clear whether it is a 10-foot-wide alley or a dedicated
easement, a tricky legal point is forward of the
coastal construction control line, state permits would be
needed for an improvements to the sandy stretch.
Also, rocks and trees are growing in the pathway,
and improvements to the stretch of roadway would be
a costly matter. There is also a question of who would
pay for any alleyway improvements the city, the
Cacossas or the Sultenfusses.
Pete Milazzo, the acting chair of the planning and
zoning board, was obviously perplexed by the matter.
"This is a grievance between neighbors," he said.
"I can see you bringing this up before the city commis-
sion," he told Sultenfuss, "but you're asking us, a third


party, to get you and the Cacossas to like each other
again."
Tom Eatman, an architect with the Bradenton
Beach firm Eatman & Smith and the agent for the
Cacossas, said he would have no problem allowing the
Sultenfusses to drive across the Sand & Sea property,
but was not willing to grant a permanent easement to
allow such activities.
"I don't understand why the Cacossas should have
to pay for fixing a problem that isn't theirs," Eatman
said of paying for improvements to the alley.
Despite the alley/easement/access issue, planners
did not seem to have any other problems with the mo-
tel expansion. The mostly straightforward application's
only twist lies in the parking on the site.
Eatman said he is required by city code to have 22
parking spots for the motel, and is providing 20 on the
property. Through a lease agreement with the adjacent
Econo Lodge to the north, Eatman said he would ac-
quire three additional parking spots, more than meet-
ing city parking codes.
The June 10 meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m.


... and Holmes Beach resident seeks help with neighbor's dog


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Request a variance or file suit against your neigh-
bor.
Those were two solutions offered last week by
Holmes Beach commissioners to a resident having
problems with her neighbor's dog.
Nicole Heslop of 61st Street and Marina Drive
said her neighbor's Great Dane recently jumped a
four-foot fence and attacked her husband. Heslop
wants to install a six-foot fence for protection.
"I'm having a dilemma," Heslop explained.
"Code enforcement can't help me because the code
says in order to have a six-foot fence, you have to
have the permission of your neighbor. We have a
four-foot fence and the neighbor has a seven-foot
dog. It lunges over the fence every time it hears
anyone in my back yard."


Heslop said originally it wasn't a problem because
when the neighbor acquired the dog, she installed a six-
foot fence, 12 feet back from the property line.
"As long as the dog didn't see us, we had no prob-
lem," she noted.
The situation changed when the Heslops began
installing a swimming pool and had to move the
fence back to the property line and reduce its height
to four feet.
"The next day, the dog lunged the fence and at-
tacked my husband," she said. "What am I going to do?
We're going to be using the back yard on a daily ba-
sis. I've had a stop work order on my pool for the last
four days because no one will go in my back yard be-
cause of this dog."
Heslop said she doesn't want the owner to get rid
of the dog or to have the dog harmed in any way.
Commissioner Luke Courtney suggested that


Heslop seek a variance from the board of adjust-
ment.
Commissioner Sandy Haas-Martens asked if
Heslop has room to install six-foot bushes behind the
fence.
"I own the garden center," Heslop said. "We've
already gone down that road. It's not blockage. The
dog's still going to see us and it [the hedge] will take
two years to grow. I'm scared to death of the dog."
"I don't thirik we should let a dog hold our zon-
ing code hostage," Commissioner Roger Lutz said.
"If I were you, I'd get a lawyer and sue them. If you
don't want to bother the dog or the owner, that's just
nuts. You're asking to get bit."
"Animal control said one bite doesn't count,"
Heslop replied. "It has to bite a second time (before
animal control can act)."
"It counts in civil court," Lutz noted.


New street at city hall will cost $35,000


Holmes Beach commissioners last week voted to
spend $35,097 to extend 59th Street and authorized
two changes to the city hall construction project.
The 59th Street extension will replace the old
58th Street which was removed for the construction
of city hall. Commissioners agreed to replace it af-
ter residents complained about traffic and evacuation
problems.
The street costs include $2,009 for demolition
and removal of asphalt and concrete, $11,375 for
earthwork, $6,201 for stormwater drainage require-
ments and $7,360 for asphalt installation. An addi-
tional $1,940.20 was added for general job costs for
delays due to site plan revisions.
Other changes to city hall plans include interior
wall and flagpole modifications. An interior wall will
create a new deputy clerk's office at a cost of $3,348.
The flagpole modifications are required for the instal-
lation of a lightning protection system commissioners
approved several months ago at a cost of $2,976.
"Why is the extra office needed?" resident Jane
Early asked.
"To put a privacy wall between [deputy city
clerks] Angela and Nancy," Mayor Carol Whitmore
replied. "Angela does records management for the
city and she has also taken over accounts payable
and payroll. You need confidentiality when you're
dealing with payroll."
Commissioners also gave Whitmore the okay to
spend up to $30,000 for changes, in $10,000 incre-
ments, without commission approval. Expenses un-
der $10,000 do not need to go to bid.
This came after Whitmore told commissioners,
"I've had two change orders since May 5 that I
haven't been able to sign off on because I had to wait
for a commission meeting. We've never done a
project like this, so we don't have any guidelines,
but I need some flexibility."
Whitmore said she will inform commissioners
each time she authorizes additional expenses.

Turtle moms arrive on Island beaches with a bang


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
After shunning Anna Maria Island's cold water for
a month or more, turtles have come ashore in hordes to
lay eggs.
That's the relieved word from Suzi Fox, who holds
the turtle conservation permit for the Island from the
Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
Gulf water was too cold to encourage mother
turtles to come forth during all of May, Fox noted,
though that month almost always sees a lot of eggs
planted here.
But it warmed up enough for them at the end of
May, and almost as many loggerheads came ashore
over the past weekend as during the whole of April and
May last year. Twenty mothers buried eggs in nests on
Anna Maria Island beaches, compared with 27 in all
that time in 1997. A nest holds from 80 to 150 eggs.
Most of the nests are at the public beach at the end of
Manatee Avenue, Fox said, with the rest scattered from
Longboat Pass to Bean Point. Also noted by Turtle Watch
volunteers were 20 "false crawls," where turtles hit the
beach but went back to sea without nesting.
From now until October, when nesting season
ends, volunteers will walk the beach every dawn to
check for nests, stake the new ones to warn people
away, and, in many cases, spread fire ant killer around
threatened nests.
With the arrival of turtles, Tom and Sabine Buehler
will resume their acclaimed "Turtle Walks and Talks"
on Sunday. Starting June 7 they will lead expeditions
into turtle territory beginning at 10 a.m. at Manatee


Turtle gone from Anna
The Turtle Nobody Wanted went home to the
sea Tuesday, but not before rekindling an old feud
on Anna Maria Island.
The rotted carcass was tied to a long rope by
city workmen and towed off the beach by Deputy
Sheriff Gary Sellitto with the city's jet boat. Well
out into the Gulf, it was cut loose.
"That's how the Florida Marine Patrol disposes
of them now," said Anna Maria Mayor Chuck
Shumard. "I buried three in a city lot in years past,
but that's been sold and can't be used."
The dead turtle washed up on the beach be-
tween Magnolia and Spring Avenues last Thursday
night. Suzi Fox, who holds the state permit for
turtle conservation, said she and her volunteers
took measurements and gathered other data and
notified the state Department of Environmental
Protection.
"That's as far as we could go," she said. "We
gather data on dead turtles, and that's as far as we
are supposed to take it. You can ask volunteers to
do only so much. The city (Anna Maria) has dis-
posed of turtles in the past and I notified the city."
That went nowhere, she said. Public Works
Director Phil Charnock told her, she said, that the
city has no land for turtle burial and it couldn't be

day and German every other Sunday. Up to 80 people


Maria beach finally
buried on the beach without a DEP permit and be-
sides, he couldn't get a tractor on the beach at that
site.
Mote Marine Laboratory's turtle specialists
were asked for help, but said the beach is out of
their territory and they could only refer the case to
the permit holder for action.
The state's DEP wasn't interested, either, but
told Fox it might send someone down to look it
over.
Meanwhile, the carcass rotted and "it was a
mean situation," said Fox, "the smell was just ter-
rible. The city should have to dispose of it."
Mayor Shumard disagreed. Until last year he
held the state permit for turtle conservation, losing
it to Fox in a quarrel over how to handle sea turtle
nests. They have tangled intermittently ever since.
"The permit holder has the responsibility,"
Shumard said. "If they can't get it done, they should
get someone else to do it. You have to take the bad
with the good."
But "the smell was atrocious," he said, and fi-
nally on Tuesday arranged with the county deputy
to use the city's boat and city public works crew-
men to get the turtle off the beach and out into the
Gulf to sink.

Danger Will Robinson
There's an indescribable thrill in sighting a Carib-
bean-native flamingo just off the north end of Anna
Maria Island on Passage Key. Rumors and sightings
have circulated for some time now, and truthfully, most
of them were written off as the "plastic-prank" variety.
But it's true. It's true.
Last Sunday longtime Islander John Fara called
wife Shelly on a cell phone from his boat to urge her
to call the newspaper which she did. "John says
there's a flamingo on Passage Key."
Later in the day we learned he'd taken photos but
didn't have a telephoto lens, so we mustered up the
troops and a boat to have a look for ourselves.
There, for all to see, was a pink flamingo. It was
nearly fluorescent in comparison to the drab pelicans,
sea gulls, skimmers, rare terns and seaweed on the
shoreline.
Both Jungle Gardens, the apparent guardian of this
lost bird, and the Tampa-area Audubon authority urge
caution. Jungle Gardens fears the highly stress-prone
bird will have a heart attack if someone tries to catch
it. Audubon reminds us the island is a wildlife refuge
and the largest tern nesting location in Florida. Signs
warn "No entry," and a 100-yard stand off is posted at
intervals on pilings around the island.
So, if you go, take binoculars or a high-powered
photo lens.
And watch out for the other wildlife, sunbathing
nudists. About seven boatloads by our count.

Lookout here, too
Turtle season on Anna Maria Island is "off and
running," so to speak.
We are nearly.par with last year's early start with
20 nests and counting, all reported over the past week-
end. This is in comparison to 27 nests in 1997 from
April through May.
Most of the nests are near the Manatee County
Public Beach, a high traffic area to be sure. Turtle vol-
unteers have flagged the nests. They place stakes sur-
rounding the nest and encircle the area with yellow
plastic ribbon and a notice to warn people away.
Of course, little sandcastle builders and younger,
more inquisitive beachgoers miy not read signs or
be able to read. It's up to responsible adults to make
sure the nests are protected and the hatchlings emerge.
For more information about turtles on Anna Maria
Island, we suggest you participate in "Turtle Walks and
Talks," a weekly expedition that begins at the Mana-
tee Public Beach every Sunday during turtle season,
beginning this Sunday, June 7 at 10 a.m.
See you there?

SLICK By Egan


Powder sand yes, gravel no
I first came to Anna Maria 41 years ago this month
at the ripe old age of 13. My parents sought and found a
haven from the beaches to the north of Anna Maria (west
of St. Petersburg), beaches.that back then were fast be-
coming the commercial, condo-covered, renourished, T-
shirt jungle it's evolved to today. I now own at 211 Fir
Ave., and my wife and I will retire here in five years. We
are very concerned about the impending renourishment of
our beautiful beaches.
The attributes that initially attracted my parents to this
gem of ours in the late 1950s are identical to those that
attracted my family and every other property owner here
since George Bean. Plain and simple, Anna Maria City is
a true original in an otherwise over-commercialized world.
'It is literally the essence of an "Island" in a sea of locales
otherwise quite distasteful to many of us. Comparing us
to Longboat Key, Southern Living recently dubbed us
"The Mom and Pop" of Gulf beaches perfect.
Each year, despite the heated levels local politics have
sometimes reached, the city has miraculously endured and
sustained itself to become even a better place to live. The
crime rate has defied all statistical odds. We've locked out
environmental factors that rendered other beach commu-
nities grotesque and we've thrown away the key. We have
preserved the essence of charm. We have secured the spirit
of community.
Except for one year overseas, I have visited the Island
at least once every year since 1957. Every single year, our
beach changed. Forty-one years ago, it took hours to walk
a mile, because we had to climb over the huge rock jet-
ties protruding into the water every 150 feet. My Dad and
I built stairs, just so we could get over the rock walls onto
the beach. But in some years, that same walk took 30
minutes, when the jetties were all but gone and the stairs
long since buried. Mother Nature had miraculously wid-
ened our beaches just as now she's chosen to narrow them,
but nowhere near as narrow as years ago.
In 1972, Hurricane Agnes never got closer than 100
miles from our shores, but I can remember walking into
the Sandbar and not seeing its floors: they were covered
in three feet of sand. That same storm claimed one of three
houses built perilously close to the waterjust short of the
point; two of those houses are being threatened today,


making the walk I refer to above impossible. The owners
of those properties today certainly knew (or were warned)
of the risks of water's edge property ownership. They
rolled the dice, enjoyed what they have (had) and now
they must go with the flow.
As certain as tides ebb, our beaches will continue to
change with each storm, each El Nino, each current
change. That's part of the charm. With renourishment,
however, will come two additional certainties: our pow-
dery sand beaches will be rendered to a surface that bare
feet won't tolerate; and it will eventually wash away, but
long after the damage has been done. The engineers say
they can deposit stuff less likely to wash away and hold
its ground. That's bureaucratic talk for, "We're going to
cover your powdery sand beach with gravel." A fate as
pretty and attractive and charming as their fleet of dredges
and bulldozers!
Those big rock jetties that got our beaches built up are
still there, doing their job. I appeal to the waterfront
homeowners to do yourselves and fellow Anna Maria citi-
zens a favor and reject the destruction of Anna Maria
City's charm. Please, don't take my word for it take a
walk on Bradenton Beach, in your bare feet, then decide.
DuLaurence "Duke" A. Miller, St. Petersburg
Perico Island exploration
Thank you so much for covering the Perico Island
annexation by the city of Bradenton and the area's pos-
sible further development. It is really helpful to keep get-
ting information about this subject.
I was extremely interested in reading your article by
Pat Copeland in which she said that County Commis-
sioner Joe McClash stated that the county had looked at
acquiring the property years ago as a resource for Mana-
tee County, but that the land owners hadn't wanted to sell.
Is the county still interested in exploring that possibility?
I was also interested that he said the county is opposed
to annexation for environmental reasons. What precisely
is the difference between the county and the city regard-
ing environmental restrictions placed on development?
We have a committee working to find alternatives to
development. We would be delighted to have anyone join
us who is interested in preserving natural beauty and se-
renity for the rest of Perico Island. Please call 795-7974.

Troops waiting to leave for Cuba in June 1898.


A QUEEN'S SALUTE


Like the new kid on the block
who's just knocked the stuffing out of
the neighborhood bully, America of
1898 puffed out its chest and strutted. It
had come to the rescue of Cuba and run
Spain clean out of town.
"Shucks, ya ain't seen nothing' yet"
was our message to the world on the
brink of a new century.
No part of the nation was prouder
than Tampa Bay. It was from here that
Teddy Roosevelt and the cream of the
nation's youth steamed off to Cuba.
Teddy's sombreroed Rough Riders had
Spain's chocolate soldiers on the ropes
in a matter of weeks.
But at first celebrations were subdued
in Tampa. For the afflictions that came
with the war yellow fever and other
maladies caused far more suffering
and death than guns and bayonets.
When occupied Cuba and Tampa
were finally fever free, on the occasion
of her 80th birthday England's Queen
Victoria dispatched two of her battle-
ships to pay a call on Tampa Bay. The
Mother Country was at last taking no-
tice of its lusty offspring.
It was a red-white-and-blue day as
the great gray ships, flying the Union
Jack and escorted by U.S. vessels with
Stars and Stripes snapping in the
breeze, swept past Anna Maria Island.
Guns on Egmont Key fired a salute
while onlookers cheered from pennant-
trimmed launches and sailboats. From
the ship decks came strains of "Rule
Britannia" mingled with "Columbia the
Gem of the Ocean."
Railroad magnate Henry Plant,
builder of the "Million Dollar Wharf"
at Port Tampa as well as the Tampa
Bay Hotel on the bank of the
Hillsborough, staged a grand celebra-
tion. He sent his newest steamship
Margaret to collect people around the
Bay. It was a beauty, this elegant 200-
foot-long side-wheeler with its solid
mahogany paneling, gleaming brass fit-
tings, garnet-colored upholstery and
electric lamps. It could take 1,000 pas-
sengers. Still, there wasn't enough
room for the crowds that waited at the
wharves along the Manatee River.
No doubt there was a good represen-
tation from Anna Maria Island. The Jones
family surely was on hand. All three of


lawyer John R. Jones's sons (aged 17 to
22) served in the war and Jones held a
wartime commission as a port official.
The Cobb family wouldn't have missed
the event. Boat builder Sam Cobb's
brother Rurick was an Army bandmaster
and a favorite of Island youngsters. Their
neighbor, fisherman Jose Casanas, prob-
ably took his grandchildren up to Tampa
for the festivi-
ties.
O n e
homesteader
missing: wid-
ower George d
Emerson
Bean, the first
of the four
former
Tampans to Queen Victoria
settle on the
Island in 1893-95. Two of his sons had
fought in Cuba. Perhaps out of worry
about them (he was a Civil War veteran
and knew war's horrors) he suffered
several strokes that summer.
His estrangement from his favorite
daughter Mary, who had married a Sal-
vation Army evangelist against his
wishes, also must have put a strain on
George Bean. But father and daughter
reconciled at his bedside and the young
couple promised they would care for the
Island homestead.
The very night Mary and Wilbur
Hall arrived on the Island she gave birth
to their second child, who was never to
see her grandfather. He died two days
later at the age of 59.
Mary was pregnant again when the
English ships came to visit in May
1899. She may have chosen to stay be-
hind at their home on Bean Point to
watch the departure of the British ships
from afar as her father might well
have done.
Not until almost a century passed
would there be a comparable occasion
for Tampa Bay. That was in 1991 when
Queen Elizabeth II sent her yacht
Brittania to honor "Sir Norman"
Schwarzkopf, the brawny knight of
Dessert Storm.

Schoenwald of Longboat
Key were nominees for Ad-
vocate of the Year.
Dr. Green has been a
tireless worker for children
and other causes in Cortez,
Si where she was born into the
pioneer Fulford family. Her
Green most recent project for
youngsters has been Kids Do
Count in Cortez, the project culminating in acquiring the
old fire station as the Community Center and headquar-
ters for children's programs.
She provided the old family home as a center for
the children until the fire house became available, and
ran the program herself with volunteers' help until fi-
nancial support arrived from Manatee County. She
turned it over to a director, and has gone into a prison
women's project, Wings.
President Stahr is a native Floridian, born in Jack-
sonville and reared in Starke. She has a master's degree
in clinical social work from Florida State University
and practices her profession in Bradenton.
She is married to Michael Stahr, a film and video
producer, and they have a 10-year-old of their own,
Eric, a Little League baseball pitcher of note.
Marshall has lived on Anna Maria Island for 50 years,
andhas been active in community activities most of those

Medflies are

coming, Medflies

are coming
By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Anna Maria Island has Medflies, thousands of
them. You can recognize them by their white hats -
these are the good guys.
It means that likely there will be no aerial.
Malathion spraying for a while, if at all.
It means, governments and fruit growers hope, that
the Medfly menace as we know it is about over.
The good-guy Mediterranean fruit flies abounding
now are sterile males, bred by tens of millions in a labo-
ratory in Guatemala and stored at MacDill Air Force Base
until dropped from small planes over Manatee County.
The fond hope of scientists is that females of the spe-
cies will mate with the sterile fellows. Futilely, of course.
"It will take three or four life cycles to eliminate
the fly," said a U.S. Department of Agriculture spokes-
man. "Since it takes 20 to 30 days from egg to egg,
that's 90 to 120 days for a real trial.
"We can't spray Melathion from the air without
killing the sterile flies. So aerial chemical spraying is
probably three or four months off."
If the sterile fellows don't work out, aerial spray-
ing seems almost certain.
The Medfly is a greenish delta-wing specimen
somewhat smaller than a housefly. It is harmless to
humans in fact, it seems to not like people but
lays eggs in 250 kinds of fruit's and vegetables and the
larvae ruin the host. The incubator of choice is citrus,
with tomatoes not far behind. And $50 million worth

MCC planting project
planned for June 13
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-
onstration Landscape.
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 refreshments will be
provided.
The project is a joint effort between MCC, the
EARTH club of the campus and the Sarasota Bay Na-
tional Estuary Program. EARTH Club faculty advisory
Carl Keeler provided in initiation, organization and
$5,000 toward the project. The Sarasota Bay Program
sponsored $1,500 in plants for the demonstration land-
scape.
For more information, call 359-5841 or Keeler at
755-1511.

CONNECTIONS

By Mary Fulford Green


GREAT EXPECTATIONS
That is what we had for some past events and is
surely what we will have for the biggest event of the
year getting final approval for the grant application
by the Manatee County Commission.
I figure that we find what we look for, especially
if we work some to make it happen. That was true of
the 16th Annual Commercial Fishing Festival in Feb-
ruary. The weather was great; the crowds of people
were happy, except for one old grouch or two; and the
vendors were eager to please.
On a personal note I survived in spite of my bro-
ken arm. I did not bake a cake, or wash a strawberry but
some terrific angels did. Atlas Kight and Sylvia Th-
ompson baked and baked. Sylvia and the Kromerys
(Herb and Bessie) washed the berries three times. A
multitude turned out to cut berries. This has become
one of our most treasured social events, and plans are
underway for next year.
The Natives and More Picnic in March (all are in-
vited) was better than GREAT, 'cause we did have
"cousins by the dozens." It is something to see the faces
when people who have not seen each other in 48 years
meet and the years fade away and you are back home
again.
The happiest trio was the John and Vera Fulford
girls, Johnny Vee, Mona Marie and Shirley Lee.
Cousin Barb Guthrie Holmes enjoyed seeing all of us
again, including Cousin Mabel Adams Hipp from
SSarasota. Those who traveled the most miles to get here
were Lem and Frances Pringle from New York.
Chester, as we called him, compared health notes with
Walter "Bub" Bell.
In 1942 there were 10 Bradenton High School
graduates from Cortez. I made the third who attended
the picnic. The big thrill was when Miss Betty MacColl
was welcomed by the students she taught at the Cortez
School in 1940. The mullet fried by Blue Fulford and
his son, Larry, were just the way we like them. Two
pots of grits were served along with much other good
cooking, so we found what we expected.

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

Kids count, too
In the meantime, how about some involvement

in the lives of kids? The Community Center needs
somebody who knows how to "drag," "click," and
"download" to evaluate a bunch of computers and
set up a real Study Center. We hope to provide op-
portunities during the summer program. And if you
have a working model we will accept it and give a
certificate of contribution. I am even asking if you
have a pinball machine you are tired of. The kids
would enjoy that, too.
Also needed is a volunteer who can fix anything,
like install a dishwasher, put on a new lock and paint
cabinet doors. The kids will help you and you will be
the winner.
Remember, 100 years from now it will not matter
what your bank account was, the sort of house you
lived in, or kind of car you drove, but the world may
be different because you were important in the life of
a child.
The Center will have 50-75 children this summer.
See you there at 4517 123 St. Ct. W. in the Cortez Fish-
ing Village, open from 3:30-6:30 p.m. Monday-Friday.

Commission lauds Design-A-Law contest winners


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach city commissioners last week
awarded $50 savings bonds to two fifth-grade winners
of the city's annual Design-A-Law contest.
Denille Smallwood of Mrs. Ellis' class and
Courtney Taylor of Mrs. Kinnan's class received the
top prizes.
Honorable mention went to Lexa Murphy and
Kristina Modisett of Mrs. Ellis' class and Catharina
Klotz and Megan Eppert of Mrs. Kinnan's class. They
each received a packet of coupons from McDonald's.
The winning entries follow, as written by each stu-
dent:
Criminals should be required to serve there entire
sentence. They should not be released early for any
reason. Denille Smallwood.
S "I feel this should be a law because if someone
murders another person and gets sentenced to "life," he
should serve it. If criminals are allowed to serve a lesser
sentence, how does that show society that we are go-
ing to stand behind our word, the law."
I think that we should have seat belts on the
school bus. Courtney Taylor.
"Why? Well, I see on the news that many children
are injured due to traffic accidents. It would be much
safer if busses were equipped with seat belts."
Every middle and high school in Manatee County
is required to have a metal detector at each entrance of
the schools. Each student carrying any kind of weapon
must pay a $500 fine and spend 12 months in boot
camp. Lexa Murphy.
"I feel this law should be passed for the safety of
students. These past few years have been very tragic
when it comes to school shootings. Statistics show that
so far in 1998, 25 students have been shot and killed in
schools. And, since July 1992, 191 students have been
shot and killed at school. One hundred and forty-eight
of the 191 students were shot in school shootings.
"If this law is enforced, I'm sure that the numbers
of deaths will decrease. School is the last place children
should have to worry about the safety of their lives."

SEmergency sirens in advertising commercials
should be banned. Any person caught broadcasting si-
rens over the radio will have to pay a $1,000 fine and
help at the emergency's vehicle's station for one year.
Kristina Modisett.
"I feel that this law should be approved because
many people use an emergency siren on the radio to
grab peoples attention on a commercial. Instead, the
siren noise scares the driver of a car and causes him/her
to take their eyes off the road, to search for the emer-
gency vehicle.
"If people are looking around, or brake suddenly
they could easily get into a car accident. What if there
was a real emergency siren, but your listening to a ra-
dio with sirens on it! Guess who's not pulled over?
Your right, you."
I think people should not be allowed to smoke
where there are children. Catharina Klotz.
''People smoke in every corner, and if children are
around smokers they breath in the smoke and get sick.
People spend a lot of money on cigarettes. Smokers
should only smoke in places were children are not al-
lowed to breath the smoke."
I think it should be unlawful to carry or have a pet

Manatee High School celebrates renaissance


By Cynthia Finn
SIslander Correspondent
Manatee County School District administrators
and elected School Board members called an after-
noon cease-fire April 26 to their months-old public
and private warfare, rallying in the sunshine to cel-
ebrate a monument to our children's future.
Alumni, parents, teachers and administrators, ar-
chitects and engineers, present students and service
organizations, talented student musicians and thes-
pians, and students-to-be gathered that Sunday after-
noon in the new ivory courtyard of Manatee High
School to dedicate the high school's new, multimil-
lion-dollar facilities.
Fawley Bryant Architects Inc.'s exterior-interior
solution to decades of population growth and a de-
mand to carry this generation and the next into a
technically correct new century of academic possi-
bilities is, in a word, stunning.
The new campus which is connected to old
brick in a pattern that defies transition to the naked
eye has the overwhelming feel of a college. If these
walls, walkways and glistening courtyard could, talk,

tive, informed leaders and creators.
New technological instruments and clean, well-
lit classrooms might even assure our children that
our local administrators and upstate legislators are
committed to backing up the dedication and training
of their teachers.
As for athletic advances, the new gymnasium is
awesome. It's even got an upstairs with portable
bleachers and the room-divider capability to offer si-
multaneous activities.
In this season of El Nifio and La Nifia, scholas-
tic, cultural, vocational and athletic Hurricane eyes
on the future feel mighty stimulating.
As a parent of 'Canes from the class of 2000
through the class of 2012, I feel as though my
school-district tax dollars have been well spent. Not
only are our thousands of teenagers the winners, but
their teachers and administrators as well.
And when the senior prom is presented on May
23, the graduating class will be on-campus for the
first time in years, dancing in the courtyard beneath
a million stars, for a truly eventful evening sure to
engrave 1998 on their hopeful hearts.

Time to use reason for hurricane season


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
Step right up. Move in a little closer there, and
make room for the children. Good. Now get comfort-
able and let me welcome you to the 1998 edition of
Hurricane Season. It's hardly ever dull.
But it hasn't been dangerous lately, either not
in a long time. Which means it probably gets a little
more dangerous every year as memories fade of what
a real blow could actually do to our community.
Devastation.
So really, it's time to check that stash of bottled
Water, flashlight batteries, couple of hundred bucks in
small bills, and boat lines. Meanwhile, try to keep at
least a half-tank of gas in your car at all times.
That's basic self-protection for an Island Hurricane
Season.
Some of the media will try to scare you, because
fear is their business. And hurricanes are worthy of fear
when they approach.
But only then.
So welcome to the show. Make yourself comfort-
able. But.as the Boy Scouts say, "Be Prepared" and
here's hoping we all come through fine. Odds are,
clearly, that we will.
Consider this just one more reminder to buy fresh
flashlight batteries today.

Clear water tall tales
Even the recent rains haven't completely destroyed
visibility in local waters that had become so very clear
during the recent drought. So both skin and scuba
divers have been having a wonderful time actually see-
ing what's down there these days. And with dive trips
come stories.
For example, one scuba diver on a near-shore "M"
reef was busily spear fishing last week when he en-
countered one of the ever-creasing number of bigjew-
fish in our area. And according to two witnesses, it al-
most undid him.
Bubbling along over the reef, this diver had

speared two fish and hung them on a stringer tied to his
waist. Yep, a jewfish emerged from a large piece of
culvert that was part of the reef. It advanced on the
diver and proceeded to inhale the two fish on the
stringer, with the diver attached.
According to witnesses, the fish then dove to the
bottom, taking the 200-pound diver along. Meanwhile,
of course, the diver was struggling to unhook the
stringer, which he eventually did, and came back
shaken, but safe.
By the way, Capt. Jonnie Walker of Sarasota tells
me he hooked ajewfish he estimated at 300 pounds on
one of the "M" reefs last week. They're getting bigger
out there, with jewfish being totally protected from
harvest in Florida waters, and Walker says there are big
ones on almost every reef offshore these days, a state-
ment confirmed by other guides in the area.
Including a hook up (and release) by Matt Bowers
and Islander correspondent David Futch a few weeks
ago. Bowers worked for nearly an hour to bring the
surprise to the boat, a 400-plus pounder with a mouth
nearly two feet wide. Unfortunately, their throw-away
camera wasn't up to the lighting conditions after sun-
set and the pictures "got away."
According to Futch, it's really something to reach
into that mouth to rescue the hook from the fish.
The largest members of the grouper family, jewfish
quite commonly reach 500 pounds and the state record
- from the days when they were legal fare is 680
pounds.

And shark
Bonnethead and black fin shark are both finishing
up spawning locally at the moment, I'm told, so both
anglers and divers are encountering them, sometimes
accidentally.
My son Joe was snorkeling with a friend off the
east side of South Lido Park Sunday morning, just in-
side Big Pass, and relates that he made a record-time
exit from the water back into the boat when three of the
critters came by. He said they were probably only about

three feet long, but they looked plenty big to him.

Back from Havana
First reports from Havana Cup Regatta returnees is
they had a great sail down, with steady breezes of 15
to 18 knots and basically a motorboat ride back when
sailors couldn't find any air, even 65 miles offshore.
Espin Bullock of Cortez and Jeff Hollway of
Sarasota arrived back Sunday morning and said 194
boats actually made it to Marina Hemingway and there
were absolutely no problems from Cuban officials at
the southern end of the trip. Sailing Bullock's 31-foot
Southern Cross out of Cortez, Jeff added that the trip
back took a long 66 hours, at least 40 of which were
motoring.
And there was no problem at this end of the trip
either. The pair checked in with customs/immigration
upon return to the dock and was immediately given an
authorization number. No inspection, no interview and
no hassle.
In case you're interested, the boat's GPS reports
that the Marina Hemingway sea buoy is exactly 265
miles from Cortez, using Polaski Light in the Dry
Tortugas as the way point.

Orimulsion date set
The Governor and Cabinet will make the decision
on whether to permit the use of Orimulsion in Mana-
tee County June 24. If you haven't contacted them to
express your opinion, please do so.

Free fishing
Get ready, because June 6 and 7 has been desig-
nated Florida's free freshwater fishing weekend to
wrap up this year's National Fishing Week. That's
right, anyone, even non-residents, can fish in any of
Florida's freshwater on that weekend without a license.
Just make sure you conform to bag or size limits.
One of the good ideas to come out of the "holy city"
of Tallahassee in recent years, the free fishing weekend is
intended to remind folks just how much fun freshwater
fishing can be, and perhaps introduce or re-introduce them
to the sport. Go wet a line in a lake or river.
See you next week.

Tarpon swarming in local waters


By Capt. Mike Heistand
Tarpon are here with a vengeance, just in time for the
close of snook season June 1. Offshore, look for some
excellent action with either snapper or grouper. Backwa-
ter anglers are finding redfish thick, but trout action is iffy.
Fishers at the Rod and Reel Pier report a lot of mack-
erel, pompano, reds and three snook caught Sunday.
Anglers at the Anna Maria City Pier are reeling
in a few pompano, mackerel and mangrove snapper.
There have been a lot of tarpon spotted, and one was
even hooked, but nothing has been landed yet.
Annie's Bait & Tackle said that Capt. Zack on the
Dee Jay II said snook season ended on a high note with
good catches of linesiders. Trout and redfish action
continues to be good, and tarpon are finally here but the
clear water is making them hard to catch. There are also
small 'cudas in the bay, and offshore there are grouper,
mangrove snapper and Spanish mackerel.
Capt. Dave Pinkham on the Legend says he took
Emil Montero and friends from Lakeland out Saturday
and caught big mangrove snapper up to 25 inches and
some nice red grouper up to 28 inches long in about 85
feet of water. On Sunday, Capt. Dave took Dan Free-
man and his son, Donnie, out to celebrate Donnie's
13th birthday. Donnie's gift: three keeper gag grouper,
one 26 inches long, plus some banded rudderfish.
Capt. Thom Smith at Angler's Repair said redfish
and snook from upper Terra Ceia Bay are the best bets
for him, plus some action in Miguel Bay.
Capt. Jason Henzell on the Neva-Miss said gag
grouper up to 18 pounds were the offshore pick of the
week, with mangrove and lane snapper mixed in. Off-
shore action is excellent right now, he added.
Capt. Steve Salgato said he was bringing in snook
up to 30 inches long up to the close of the season, plus
redfish, cobia and tarpon.
Carl at Perico Harbor Bait & Tackle said offshore
fishing is good for permit, with small crabs the best bait.
Wade fishers were hooking up with snook in the back of
Palma Sola Bay, but they're finding trout action slow.
Capt. Rick Gross said snook season went out with
a bang for him, too, with a few reds thrown in.


Black grouper to brag about
Bob Felker trolled up this 15-pound black grouper in the Gulf of Mexico while fishing with Capt. Joe Webb


aboard the charter boat Old Florida.

On my boat Magic we're catching lots and lots of
redfish, a few keeper snook up to 31 inches long and
trout to 24 inches.
Capt. Tom Chaya said permit, cobia and flounder
were the best bets in the Gulf, with snook and redfish
the hot tickets in the backwater.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said it was an ex-
cellent snook season this year. Kingfish are all but
gone, but tarpon are here. Bill added to stop in for the
whe-re and hows of silver king fishing.
Good luck and good fishing.

The week
that was...
By Kevin P Cassidy

All-stars shine at
Scanio Stadium
Awards ceremonies and Little League all-star games
dominated happenings at the Benji Scanio Memorial Sta-
dium at the Anna Maria Island Community Center on
Saturday as players and parents from T-ball, AA, AAA
and the major leagues all took part in day-long festivities.
S The morning got started with the T-ball awards cer-
emony where all participants received recognition for a
great season.
Next came the all-star games where top players in
each of the three leagues split into Blue versus Gray. The
AA Blue team coached by Brad Lisk, Lisa Risha and
Steve Moniz prevailed 8-5 in a close game over the AA
Gray all-stars who were coached by Jeff Hancock, Dan
Lease, Debbie Burger, Mark Wickersham, Ted Talerino,
Ken Garner and Tammy Fitzgerald.
The winning Blue team was led by Liam Moniz, who
went 3-for-3 and scored three runs, while Chris Klotz,
Chris Pace, Tanner Pelkie and David Bryant went 2-for-
3 on the day.
Charlie Woodson had a home run and a double, while
Jimmy Lease and Kayla Garner went 2-for-2 including
RBI doubles. Spencer Carper, Joel Mitchell and Lance
Burger each went 1-for-2 to lead the Gray all-stars.

game as well by a score of 4-3. Pitching dominated the
hitting with the exception being Hunter Green's prodi-

Blue an early 3-0 lead.
