Marina operation offered to Bradenton Beach


By Paul Roat
Bradenton Beach officials are mulling the idea of
getting into the marina business.
Bradenton Beach Marina owner Allan Bazzy has
offered to sell his business dock, stock and restau-
rant to the city for $6.2 million. The operation is just
south of the Cortez Bridge on Anna Maria Sound.
Officials in the city referred the matter to land apprais-
ers, city auditors and attorneys to determine value, busi-
ness cash flow and financing. A workshop on the matter
will be scheduled later this summer for more discussion.
Mayor Connie Drescher said she approached
Bazzy a couple of months ago regarding the idea of the
city taking over operation of the marina as a means to
enhance revenue to the city. Bazzy was receptive to her
suggestion of city ownership of the business.


Holmes Beach


canal group

mired in


dredge data
By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach canal commissioners are doing re-
search for a report on the feasibility of dredging the city's
canals as required by the city's comprehensive plan.
"We are obligated to give a report to the city on
June 30," Chairman Bob Jorgensen said. "They have
until December to decide whether to accept or reject
our findings. We're missing a lot of detail such as who
owns the canals and what are the original specifications
of the canals."
Jorgensen explained the Florida Sea Grant research
program is conducting a project to map the depths and
access points of canals leading to to the Intracoastal
Waterway along the Gulf coast. The project's goal is
to research better means of waterway management for
recreational boating.
Anna Maria Island was able to take part in the project;
however, due to delays including legal matters, weather
and equipment failure, the data are not yet available. The
depth soundings are to be done in mid-June, then the data
will have to be analyzed, Jorgensen said.
"This is not unusual for a comp plan schedule to
be backed up," Public Works Supervisor Joe
Duennes said. "It might be worthwhile to wait for
the information."
The commission can go ahead with other research



Corn. Goodchild

leaving

Bradenton Beach
Bradenton Beach City Commissioner Dan
Goodchild has sold his home and is moving to
North Carolina, leaving a vacancy on the commis-
sion effective June 30.
"I want to thank everybody." Goodchild said.
"I will miss you all."
Goodchild represents Ward 1 at the northern
end of the city.
The city's charter is specific in dealing with
vacancies on the city commission.
"Commissioners shall each propose one name
of a qualified successor from the ward in which
the vacancy exists to fill the vacancy. and shall
then select a successor from those names to serve
until the next election." the charter reads.
The next election in Bradenton Beach is Nov. 3.


"I've been on the job for 32 years," Bazzy said
last week during his formal presentation before the
city commission, "and I'm finding it harder to get up
in the morning. I keep asking myself, 'Do I need to
continue to do this?'"
Bazzy said the cash flow from the marina, which
includes an enclosed boat storage shed, marine sales,
service and a restaurant, is "very profitable we op-
erate at a good efficiency."
The marina was the focus of about $2.5 million in
renovations during the past three years. There are four
businesses that operate on the property: the boat yard/
gas docks; boat sales, service and parts; boat rentals;
and the restaurant, Shrimp Louie's.
"The remodeling has changed its emphasis from a
boat repair yard to a fixed-income rental property,"


Bazzy said. "Though it still performs repairs, it now
functions more like a 180-unit 'apartment building.'"
Bazzy said fixed income potential for the marina
operation is $558,000 per year. Over a 30-year period,
the potential income stream would grow to almost $4
million per year, he said.
Bazzy said he would sell the marina to the city for no
money down and, based on his loan rate figures for mu-
nicipal financing, would provide a "positive cash flow [to
the city] of $925 per week or $48,000 per year."
He cited the marina as a vehicle to keep property
taxes down in the city, pointing to a dozen or so other
cities in Southwest Florida that have municipal mari-
nas and receive income from the operations.

and then plug in the Sea Grant data when they're avail-
able. Jorgensen said.
"We have lots of other things to decide," Jorgensen
noted. "There are 30-some canals in the city and we
haven't even decided which ones need dredging."
Duennes said the Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection will be heavily involved in any
dredging.
"We're still -liu2. 1 inl to get a permit to dredge
Bimini Bay," Duennes said. "If we decide that we're
going to dredge these canals. we're going to have a
struggle to get a permit, then we'll have to validate how
we dispose of the dredged material. We'll have to take
cross sections of the depths that exist because the state
won't allow us to go any deeper than they were origi-
nally designed."
Duennes said the city may encounter a "Catch 22"
situation because the canals serve privately owned
land. though the waters are owned by the state.
Commission member Louie Strickland asked who
would pay for the dredging.
Jorgensen said a group of citizens living on a ca-
nal could join in a dredging project for their canal.
"It may become an issue with those who don't live
on the water or own a boat." Duennes warned.
Canal commission members agreed that they will
try to locate any old maps, charts and historical records
on the canals. They will also research what types of
dredging are available and pros and cons and costs, the


permitting process and what types of equipment are
needed to dredge and where to get the equipment.
Other issues are who owns the canals, the respon-
sibilities of the owners and the city and legal issues.
Mayor Carol Whitmore said she will work with City
Attorney Patricia Petruff to determine who owns the
canals.
Commission members divided up the remainder of
the research work and plan to present the results at their
next meeting on June 18 at 1:30 p.m.

County reserves right to sue over annexation


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Manatee County commissioners agreed last week
to reserve the right to sue the City of Bradenton over
the proposed annexation of the northern portion of
Perico Island.
On April 17, five majority owners of the property
petitioned the city to annex their parcels and establish
a Planned Development Project classification. The an-
nexation includes 416.42 acres of uplands and sub-
merged bottom lands. The density is three units per
acre and the potential development is 900 units..
In a letter to the city, county commissioners said
the annexation is inconsistent with a Florida statute that
"disallows annexation which would result in the cre-
ation of an enclave of developed property."
The annexation proposal does not include the portion
of the island where Leverock's restaurant and Galati
Perico Harbor Marina are located. If the annexation is al-
lowed, this portion would become an enclave surrounded
by city property but requiring county services.
Commissioners originally considered two letters
- one concerning development related issues and the
other exercising the option to sue.
"I don't intend on being part of suing the City of

Marina for sale
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
Bazzy offered three "management options" for the
operation of the marina:
Bazzy would lease back the marina for a limited
time "No more than one or two years" and sub-
lease to individual businesses on the property. This
proposal would "free the city of management respon-
sibilities and create a transitional period, allowing the
city to ease into its new landlord position," he said.
The city would lease directly to the four businesses
on the site, with Bazzy acting as "city manager" for the
operation, receiving a fee for management services.
The city takes over the entire operation, with
Bazzy having no role other than serving'as "consultant
on an as-needed basis," he said.
Commissioner Dan Goodchild asked Bazzy what
he would receive financially at the close of the sale, if
the city were to buy the marina.
"I'll end up with a couple of million bucks and a
great deal of satisfaction," Bazzy said. "The marina is
a showpiece. Other marinas are copying what we're
doing, and it can be a major revenue source to the city."
"I'm very excited and interested and I want to ex-
plore the offer," Mayor Connie Drescher said.
Commissioner Gail Cole said management of the
operation is the key to the success of the marina, and the
success of the money coming to the city. "Politicians like
to tinker," he said with a grin, "and this deal has to be


Bradenton," Commissioner Stan Stephens said. "We
can send them the information and share our concerns,
but to spend taxpayers dollars to sue our sister city ...
I don't think it would be in our best interest."
Commissioner Joe McClash asked if the notifica-
tion is necessary to protect the county's right to sue.
According to state statute, the county must notify
the city 45 days in advance of filing a suit, County
Attorney Tedd Williams explained. Then the city has
30 days to schedule a meeting to discuss the issues.
"Only after that could the suit be filed," Williams
added. "And because of requirements in another stat-
ute, anybody that opposes an annexation is required to
file his appeal seeking review of it within 30 days of the
annexation."
"With that being said, I don't really have a prob-
lem with the way the letter [stating the option. to sue]
is drafted, because it doesn't mean we will sue,"
McClash pointed out. "We're still going to take com-
ments at the public hearing and work with the city to
resolve any issues we feel are important. There's a pro-
cess we need to follow to protect the county."
The city might not yield the annexation but may
come to some terms concerning environmental issues,
Commission Chairman Pat Glass noted.


"I don't know that we would have a cause of ac-
tion," Williams responded. "The problem is that this is
a voluntary annexation by the owners and the only
grounds we have is the creation of an enclave. The
environmental issues could be used in a different type
of annexation."
McClash said the county will lose a substantial
amount of revenue if the parcel is annexed but will still
have to supply the infrastructure.
Commissioners agreed to combine the letters.
The letter outlines three areas of concern:
Protection of.environmentally sensitive coastal
habitat.
"The Environmental Lands Management and Acqui-
sition Committee has rated the coastal fringe area of Perico
Island as highly environmentally sensitive and in need of
extra protection from the potentially negative effects of
development," the letter states. "The Board of County
Commissioners has identified the protection of the natu-
ral coastlines in Manatee County as a top priority."
Compatibility of any new development with ex-
isting residential development located adjacent to the
annexation site.
Evacuation and clearance times on Manatee Av-
enue in the. event of a hurricane.


Allan Bazzy, owner of the Bradenton Beach Marina, has offered to sell the establishment to the city for $6.2 million.

structured so that can't happen. This is the beginning."?'
City Attorney Alan Prather said the offer and any
subsequent city action is "a very complex situation. If
the city looks into this offer, the city needs to have an
auditor-appraiser-finance team, including bond coun-
sel, to investigate the matter."
Commissioners agreed.


There was no comment on Bazzy's offer from the
score or so citizens in the audience.
"I thought I owed it to you to make this offer,"
Bazzy told commissioners. "We have had a good rela-
tionship over the years, and before I broke the marina
up into different parcels I thought I should offer the
operation to you."


No scooters now for Island Marina


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Island Marine won't rent water scooters now,
but if it were to do so there's nothing to stop it.
That seems to be the status regarding fears of
Bayou condominium residents in Anna Maria City
that noisy personal watercraft would start disturbing
them soon.
The old Five O'Clock Marine is under new own-
ership and the new name, Island Marine, is still ca-
nal-side at 412 Pine Ave. Rumors have been flash-
ing through the neighborhood, and Mayor Chuck
Shumard has heard from several indignant residents.
But new owner Rudy Kratz says he has no im-
mediate plans for renting water scooters, but he does
so at two other locations and says he hasn't heard a
complaint from any neighbors.
He believes there are two reasons people haven't
objected to his operations at the Anna Maria Boat
Club in Holmes Beach and Palma Sola Boat Rentals.
1. "Our rules are even more stringent than the
state laws, we secure them with credit card deposits,
and we can punish any infraction pretty severely."
2. "We have the quietest watercraft in the busi-
ness."
His rules require that operators run at idle speed
in canals and within 100 yards of shore, he said.
Anna Maria's public works director, Phil
Charnock, said he issued Kratz an occupational li-
cense and Kratz had assured him that at least for now


he was going to stick with renting larger boats and
servicing all.
Mayor Shumard said he doesn't expect a real
problem with the craft even if Kratz should decide
to rent them.
"There's nothing we could do about it even so,"
he said. "We can't tell him he can only rent 18 feet
and up, say. I'm not happy with jet skis, many
people don't like them. There are accidents with
them, sure, but they are part of modern life around
the water.
"The only place they might bother people is
when they would leave Lake LaVista for the bay,
then they would go past the Bayou. But it's a 'no
wake' zone, and as long as they stuck to idle speed
there'd be no problem."
Kratz said his Island Marine will repair all types
of vessels, including personal watercraft. He is set
up to service all boats, motors, personal watercraft
and so on, "a full service marina."
It will be fully operational in about a month, he
said, but the service department is up and running
now. He will rent boats, all right, but he said he's
thinking more along the lines of pontoon boats and
conventional motor boats.
He bought the marina from the Galati family after
a year of negotiations, he said. He needed the business
and the Galatis, he thought, had outgrown the location.
They still have their Anna Maria marina as well as one
in Bradenton just across the Anna Maria Island Bridge.


Anna Maria boaters,

beware of low bridge
Boat traffic under the humpback bridge on
North Bay Boulevard faces delays when a
month's repair work begins on the underside of
the bridge. Automobile and pedestrian traffic will
not be affected.
Anna Maria has contracted with Lovin Con-
struction Inc. to repair T-beams, pilings and pile
caps, said Phil Charnock, city public works direc-
tor. The underpinnings of the bridge have deterio-
rated over the years.
Scaffolding will be hung from bridge railings
on each side, suspending an aluminum walkway
for workmen. Depending on the tide, vertical
clearance is expected to be reduced to four to five
feet, compared with the normal eight to nine.
When a boat approaches, workmen will have
to leave the scaffolding and raise it for the boat's
passage. Charnock hopes delays for boaters won't
be more than 10 minutes.
At night, normal clearances will resume ex-
cept for the 'scaffold hangers, which will be
lighted with flashing yellow lights on all four
corners.
Charnock estimated the work will take four
weeks, including weekends. He added that
questions should be directed to his department,
778-7092.

'Jaws' numerous, avoidable


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Sharks of a dozen species and all sizes and disposi-
tions are visiting here, but don't worry too much they
don't like us any more than we like them.
Dr. Bob Hueter, senior scientist at Mote Marine Labo-
ratory, said this is the time when the big predators come
into Gulf shallows and bays to feed and breed.
Two dozen species use this part of the Gulf at differ-
ent times of year, he said, with about half of them crowd-
ing in now.
Many of them come for the same reason fishermen
do: tarpon and other large fish that follow the warmer
waters into the summer. Others are giving birth or being
born, said Hueter, for the beaches and bays here are a
wonderful nursery area.
"We have a huge continental shelf, running far out
into the Gulf," he said. "It is good for all coastal sea life,
and so it is a great pantry for sharks."
Largest of the big hunters that roam our waters are the
hammerhead and bull sharks, both of which favor tarpon
and stingrays as well as other food. Tarpon seldom bring
them close inshore, but stingrays are breeding now them-
selves in the shallows along the coastline. Sharks some-
times skid right up to the beach for a stingray snack.
In fact, a couple big hammerheads came into the


Traffic slimmer as Anna Maria paves


Traffic won't be stopped for the patching and re-
paving of Anna Maria City streets over the next two
weeks, but one-laning will be the rule.
Some delays may be expected, said Public Works
Director Phil Charnock, and flagmen will direct traffic
where, streets are reduced to one lane.
He has established the following schedule, which
he warned is subject to change due to asphalt availabil-
ity and weather conditions:
Monday, June 15, five patching jobs required by
replacement of collapsed stormwater drains, plus clip-
ping and cleaning on right of ways to remove accumu-
lated sand, dirt, debris and vegetation.
Monday through Thursday, June 15-18, repaving


of the longest runs will start at 900 South Bay Blvd. and
continue north on North Bay Boulevard; then from the
intersection of Hibiscus Road on North Shore Drive
around the north point to where North Shore intersects
with Willow.
The following week, June 22-25, smaller paving
jobs will be done, including Holly and Iris Streets, the
300 block of Magnolia Street, Maxine Way, Hammock
Circle, the cul de sac on Tern Street and the 600 block
of Fern Street.
Work on Gulf Drive and Pine Avenue will be
scheduled following upcoming drainage work.

swimming area off Siesta Beach Saturday to nibble on a
tarpon, prompting lifeguards to close the beach for about
an hour until the sharks moved on.
Bonnethead are showing up, and sharpnose and a
variety of others with the happy exception of the great
white, which is bigger and bolder than any but is rarely
seen in our waters.
Most of the sharks here are four feet long or less, with
few 12- to 20-footers except hammerheads. All of them
have plenty of sharp teeth, though the hammerhead's
mouth is too small for human consumption.
There is little danger of attack on people, Hueter said.
He recommends avoidance as the best weapon against
shark bite. Just stay away from them. Hueter said it isn't
hard:
Keep an eye on the flags which lifeguards fly to
show beach conditions; they will warn of dangerous sea
life near the beach.
Don't swim at night.
Stay near other swimmers, so a shark won't think
you're a big entree.
Never go far from the shore, particularly alone.
If you do wander into shark territory and "see some-
thing in the water," don't move.
Never go near fishermen, they may be spilling blood
in the water and sharks drool over it.

Beautification group urges island adoption


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The Holmes Beach Parks and Beautification Advi-
sory Board wants you to think about adoption.
Your new "baby" may require some water, loving
care and attention but it's guaranteed not to cry.
The board is offering 11 traffic islands throughout
the city for adoption by residents, civic groups, clubs
or businesses. Mayor Carol Whitmore recently set the
example by having the islands at the intersection of
East Bay Drive and Manatee Avenue planted with lan-
tanas, pintas and periwinkles.
Traffic island sites available for adoption are:
1. Gulf Drive, 37th Street and Fifth Avenue.
2. Gulf Drive and Third Avenue.
3. Gulf Drive at Manatee County Public Beach.
4. Gulf Drive and Sunrise Lane.
5. Three medians on Marina Drive at Gulf Drive.
6. Palm, Key Royale and Marina Drives.
7. Palm and Gulf Drives.
8. 76th Street.
9. Gulf Drive and 58th Street.
10. Gulf Drive and 56th Street.
11. 5300 block of Gulf Drive at the Martinique.
Those interested in adopting islands should pick up
an application form at city hall or call Beautifician
Chairman Sheila Hurst at 778-0369 and indicate their
top three choices of islands by number or location de-

scription (as listed).
Participants are asked to use mostly native plants or
plants that require little water and maintenance. Each par-
ticipating individual, group or business will be allowed to


place a sign in the beautified island stating who adopted
it. The board plans to judge the islands and present awards
as part of an Earth Day celebration in 1999.
In other business last week, Hurst told members
that resident Sabine Buehler, a Manatee County Mas-
ter Gardener, is ready to present a plan for the "Gate-
way to Holmes Beach" project.
This is a joint effort with the Florida Department
of Transportation to beautify the city's entrance from
the Anna Maria Island Bridge on Manatee Avenue to
East Bay Drive. The DOT offered the city a grant for
half of the $80,000 cost of the project.
Buehler is expected to present the plan at the next
beautification meeting July 1. Buehler is also working
on plans to beautify the Manatee County Beach area.
Hurst said she spoke with Anna Maria Island Ro-
tary Club President Michael Advocate and the club will
work with the board to include its "welcome sign" in
the new gateway plan.

Seventeen senior high school members of All Is-
land Youth are planning to attend a 10-day work
camp in Morristown, Tenn., later this summer and
are asking the Island community to support them in
their endeavor.
All Island Youth (AIY) is a youth ministry pro-

Church of Anna Maria and Gloria Dei Lutheran Church
of Holmes Beach. Its members testify to its success
over the past five years in offering them healthy, safe,
service-oriented and spiritual alternatives to traditional


The Cortez Community Center's Summer
Pizza Kickoff party is the season's first and last
event, scheduled at 4:30 p.m. Friday, June 12.
Center Director Deborah Znaczko said it will be
a beginning-and-end party, closing out the school sea-
son and opening the summer program for youngsters.
The Center will pay tribute to the youngsters
who have been involved in programs through the
school term, she said, and welcome participants in
the "Kids Do Count in Cortez" summer program.
Many of them are the same children, she noted,
and the Center will especially welcome their fami-
lies, too, at Friday's event.
Thirty-five to 40 children showed up at the
Center on weekdays during the school year to par-
ticipate in sports, games, arts and crafts and other
activities but only after they had completed their
homework, as supervised by adults.
Znaczko expects 60 to 70 children daily for the


teenage activities.
More than 300 Christian young people from across
the country will attend the work camp from July 29
through August 9. They will help to renovate homes in
disadvantaged neighborhoods and enjoy fellowship.
"Our young people from AIY will represent Anna
Maria Island. We are asking those who can to help give
our members the opportunity for this rich, positive
growth experience," says AIY Youth Leader Danith
Kilts, pastor of Gloria Dei.

Calling audiences, advertisers
The AIY members will present the second an-

Slow down!
Residents of Cortez Village are asking Manatee
County Transportaion Department's support for a re-
quest to reduce speed limits on streets in the village to
20 mph.
Residents hope this action will help reduce speed
on the narrow street adjacent to the Cortez Community
Center. According to community activist Mary Fulford
Green, citizens on every street have joined together to
ask for posted speed limit signs throughout the village.
Other suggestions include posting speed limits on
Cortez Road, especially from 119th Street to the Cortez
Bridge. Excessive speeding along this stretch of road
makes it almost impossible for pedestrians to cross
Cortez Road, particularly for those persons walking to
and from the only grocery serving village residents.
The request is scheduled to be on the agenda of the
Manatee County Commission on June 16.
Letters of support may be mailed to Manatee
County Commissioners, P.O. Box 1000, Bradenton, FL
34206, to the attention of Chairperson Pat Glass.

Shark watch
Welcome to "that" time of year again.
(Cue up the theme from "Jaws" da-dum da-dum
da-DUM.)
Actually, before we go any further, it's important to
note that your chance of being attacked by a shark is about
as slim as winning the lottery slimmer in fact.
In the past 40 or so years, there has been one sus-
pected local fatality, and that was a gentleman who de-
cided to swim from Bean Point to Egmont Key and,
although there was evidence he had been accosted by a
shark, drowning was suspected as the cause of death along
with alcohol consumption.
We saw the other day that Manatee County averages
725 dog bites a year versus about zero shark bites.
Now is the time of year that hammerhead sharks
move toward the beach, looking for love, and sometimes
a tarpon to snack upon. Bull sharks and bonnetheads are
also moving through.
But not to worry. Show a little caution and use a little
common sense like don't do offshore swimming at
night, stay away from schools of flashing fish and watch
for dangerous marine life warning signs'- and you'll
probably never see a shark. Except on TV.

Better watch out
Speaking of TV, we've all heard a lot about the im-
pending aerial application of malathion over Bradenton to
eliminate Mediterranean fruit flies which, as of our press
time, was scheduled to start Wednesday night in
Bradenton.
We're trying to understand why they need to undergo
aerial spraying when the number of newly discovered
Med flies has so drastically dropped in recent weeks.
The drop in numbers of trapped flies seems to indi-
cate to us that the ground spraying, combined with the
delivery and spreading of hundreds of millions of sterile
flies, is working. We think it's a signal to at least postpone
this drastic effort and its possible consequences.
While the scientists tell us it won't be harmful, their
list of precautions is certainly not understated. If malathion
presents dangers in swimming pools and lakes and for
something as prevelant as outdoor toys and pets, surely
aerial spraying should be the very last measure to save
fruit and vegetable crops.
Hillsborough County lost an awful lot of insect life,
valuable to the wildlife food chain, last year during their
malathion spraying spree. There were also a few incidents
of the spray planes missing the targeted area and dropping
a lot of insecticide in Tampa Bay, and it's a fish killer.
It seems like malathion application is better served as
a direct arrow rather than a shotgun spree especially
near waterways and people.

Sorely missed
It was with a heavy heart I said goodbye to Leon
and Melody Kramer, who recently moved from Anna
Maria to Delray Beach. They have been extremely ac-
tive watchdogs in the community, participating in
meetings Island, county and statewide. Both have
served on several committees and were a part of the
group that saved the Cortez Road Bridge.
Melody resurrected the Anna Maria Civic Associa-
tion and kept it going until she resigned as president.
But most of all she will be remembered for her creation
and leadership of Save Anna Maria, Inc. As president
she kept us going with her guidance and enthusiasm
during the long, hard-won fight to save the Anna Maria
Bridge at Manatee Avenue.
Anna Maria's loss is Delray Beach's gain. They
will be sorely missed.
Bunny Garst, Anna Maria

Do it again
So you've written or telephoned the Florida Gov-
ernor and the Cabinet expressing your concerns about
Orimulsion. Now you can sit back and just we what
happens.
Wrong! If you do not want the permit to burn
Orimulsion to be granted to Florida Power & Light you
must write or phone again!
There was a hearing in January at which testimony
was heard from opponents and proponents, the hearing
officer, after reviewing all the material, voted in favor
of granting the permit.
Now the question goes again before the Governor
and Cabinet for a final decision on June 24. It is urgent
that you write again and have your opposition noted
during the final few weeks before the hearing.
You must remind them that we are still opposed to
burning this fuel that we are concerned about the
ultrafine smoke stack particles which will cause respi-
ratory irritation that we are worried about the emul-
sifier used in this product, which has proven toxic prop-
erties and that the ability to clean up a major spill
in Tampa Bay has not been demonstrated.
It is imperative that the Governor and Cabinet
know people are opposed to the allowing of this per-

mit. They must be told once more that we are paying
attention and that we look to them to protect the qual-
ity of our air and water, the health of our young and old,
and of future generations. Whether or not you have
written or phoned before, take a few minutes now and
insist that this permit must not be granted.
Freda Perrolta, Longboat Key

Commissioner 'checked'
It has become increasingly evident that Bradenton
Beach City Commissioner Gail Cole is continually dis-
gruntled. His constant complaints and uncooperation
are disruptive and counterproductive.
The latest assault at our May 21 city meeting was
the icing on the cake. He questioned a "public facts
finding committee" formed by the liaison for public
works, a good committee formed to ensure the best
time efforts for our ever-growing city.
Regarding his question No. 6, establishing the
qualifications of volunteers: Since when do we have to
do this to the dear people who volunteer with our city?
I've been a volunteer teacher and a church volunteer for
years and at the present time am a volunteer with the
city of Bradenton Beach, Red Cross of Manatee
County and Manatee Community Blood Bank. I have
never had my credentials checked!
The issue of the instructional, informative memo to
Police Chief Jack Maloney had no bearing on the
choice of Commissioner Cole's subject. This type of
behavior is where rumors begin.
May I suggest to Commissioner Cole that he be-
come more of a team player and join the rest of the
commission with a performance of hard work in "his
own" liaison assignments?

President William McKinley


By the President, WILLIAM
McKINLEY
All his life George Emerson had
dreamt of a place like Anna Maria.
Tales told him by his seafaring father
and uncles of romantic places had early
stirred his imagination. As a young
sailor roaming the high seas he yearned
after many a languid tropic isle.
But it was when he sailed down to
Florida from New London, Connecti-
cut, in 1865 with three of his Union
army comrades that he came upon the
land of his desire.
One golden evening they cast an-
chor in a mangrove-sheltered cove in
the lee of an arrow-shaped island called
Anna Maria and fell asleep with the
gleam of a lighthouse across the pass to
keep them company through the night.
"Some day I'll build a house here
and live in it the rest of my days," he de-
clared to his friends the next morning.
George was 26 years old then. He
was 54 and a widower his wife
Abbie died of yellow fever in 1887 -
when he moved with his four teen-
aged children into the log house he
built on the spot he'd chosen nearly 30
years before.
In early May 1898 George placed in
the Manatee River Journal the first of
six public notices. It stated that he had
"filed at the land office in Gainesville,
Fla., to make final proof in support of
his claim...before J.J. Stewart, county
judge in Braidentown, Fla., on June 18,
1898" for 124.16 acres on the island of
Anna Maria.
But George could not appear before
Judge Stewart as advertised. A series of
strokes led to his death on Sept. 3, 1898.
It fell to Mary Bean Hall to "prove up"
the family homestead a year later. She
was only 16 when she pioneered the
wild, lonely island with her father and
three younger brothers and sisters in
1893.
The Halls moved away in 1907 to
return to the evangelistic work they'd
temporarily given up out of filial duty.
Wilbur Hall died in 1944 at the age of
81. Mary later returned to the Island
where she remained until her death in
1971 at the age of 94.

Child's life shaped by experience


By Suzanne Wight and Janet Aubry
Special to The Islander
The Manatee County Nursery School is a pretty
amazing place, as some of our Island girls found over
the past school year.
An all Island all freshman committee of the
Reinaunce Service Club volunteered to come up with
a service project for the entire club. Members Lisa
Jenkins, Melissa Mixon, Suzanne Wight and Kiernan
Wilkins brainstormed to come up with some criteria -
something for kids, something more than "just raising
money" and something that all the club members could
participate in.
After contacting Volunteer Services of Manatee
County for ideas consistent with their goals, they put
in a call to the nursery school. All they really knew then
was that the nursery school had the right ingredient -
kids in need.
The committee developed its idea for a Christmas
party, and as only kids can do, envisioned Santa Claus,
presents for the children, a tree and cookies to decorate,
music, dancing and more. They presented their idea at
the monthly Reinaunce meeting, receiving a very en-
thusiastic and unanimous vote in favor of proceeding
with the project.
Every club member signed up to volunteer in dif-
ferent aspects of the massive undertaking. Financing
was provided by the Reinaunce treasury, the girls them-
selves, Jennifer's, a dress shop, and donations and dis-
counted items from Albertson's.
The committee went to work. With upper classman

Kiernan Wilkins, dancer, actress, musician and middle
daughter of the highly talented Wilkins family of
Holmes Beach worked on entertainment (what else?)
including music and photography.
After much preparation, including a "wrap party,"
where most of the 40-member-strong Reinaunce Club
beautifully wrapped over 600 presents, the big day
came.
The girls, dressed in festive Christmas attire, de-
scended upon the Manatee County Nursery School
with armloads of food, decorations, candy canes, pre-
sents, fruit juice, cameras, boom boxes and enough
spirit to carry the day. What happened next was a blur
of excitement, fun and good cheer.
Some memorable moments included the arrival of
Santa Claus, a close personal friend of Don Maloney (and
bearing a striking resemblance to the Holmes Beach com-
missioner). He arrived by van with Maloney's grandsons,
Michael and Jason Sato, of Holmes Beach.
Santa held each and every one of the 300 kids on
his lap and heard everyone's Christmas requests in
spite of it being a hot day and no air conditioning.
The girls discovered the baby nursery and before
long had all the babies in the party room joining in the
festivities, Barbara Blue, the school staff member in
charge, made sure the girls and the kids had as much
access to each other as possible. And it was obvious
from the amount of hugging, kissing, laughing and re-
indeer dancing that a lot of new friends were made that
day.
The girls left vowing to return and they did. A
new club committee formed to do a special Easter
project decided an Easter Egg Hunt at the school would
be a good chance to visit their new friends. So back
they went, this time with more than 4,000 colored eggs
hand-stuffed with candy, stickers and other goodies.
They were accompanied by the Easter Bunny Ja-
son Nuttal, Manatee High School senior, at the invita-
tion of a club member. Eggs were hidden all over the
playground. Each child designed his/her own party bag
complete with rabbit ears and a cotton tail, and did
some coloring.

Hot summer, cool art
at Guild Gallery
Local artist D. Dell'Armo is displaying his color-
ful, tribal forms in watercolor at the Artists Guild Gal-
lery, 5414 Marina Drive, Island Shopping Center,
Holmes Beach, through.July 30.
Dell considers himself a folk artist whose work
resembles a mixture of African, pre-Columbian, Alas-
kan and Southwest American Indian styles. His fanci-
ful animals and figures in bright, hot colors are framed
in equally brilliant colored frames and mats, making his
works truly unique and eye-catching, says Artists Guild
Director Zo6 Von Averkamp.
The gallery is open from 10 a.nm. to 4 p.m: Tues-
day through Friday. For more information, call 778-
6614.

New exhibits at
historical museum
The Anna Maria Island Historical Society Mu-
seum, 402 Pine Ave., Anna Maria City, has announced
the opening of two new exhibits.
The growth of the Island Elementary School is
traced from its inception as a one-room schoolhouse
with eight grades to the present kindergarten-through-
fifth-grade facility with 386 students. Pictures of early
classes and photographs of all principals to date are
included in the display.
The second new exhibit is a pictorial survey of the
seven Island churches, dating from the construction of
Roser Memorial Community Church in 1913.
Presently in the working stages is a near-future il-
lustrative review of 62 mayors who have served the
three Island cities of Bradenton Beach, Holmes Beach
and Anna Maria. Anyone who has any photographs of
any of these elected officials is asked to contact

One of the few, the select: the Ironman


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Dave Bennett is an Anna Maria Island-trained
rookie who has bypassed the playoffs and made it di-
rect to the Super Bowl.
It all happened through his sport's equivalent of
Lotto.
His sport is triathlon, hours and hours of torture to
and through the breaking point, run and swim and ride
a bike and pray you can just finish.
He has been at it for three years and just a few com-
petitions, and he will compete against 1,350 world-
class athletes with many years apiece in the sport. That
will be Oct. 3 in the 20th annual Ironman Triathlon
World Championship on Hawaii.
Only the best are allowed in, says the event's or-
ganizers. More than 25,000 triathletes from 50 coun-
tries attempt to qualify, and only 1,500 are admitted.
So how did rookie Bennett make it?
He filled out a form along with 4,000 others, and
it and 149 others were drawn out of a hat, or however
it's done. "It's such an honor, just phenomenal," says
Bennett.

A grueling honor
What the honor will do for him, or to him, is let
him swim in the rough Pacific Ocean for 2.4 miles, race
his bicycle 112 miles in hilly Hawaiian terrain, and
then run 26.2 miles.
It has to be completed in 17 hours or less. Last
year's winner, a German Ironman, did it in 8 hours, 33
minutes and 1 second. Bennett hopes to finish in 11
hours. Actually, he just hopes to finish; to fade in the
stretch would be a gross humiliation.
He knows about that. In his first race ever three
years ago in Jacksonville, a quarter-mile swim and 10-

Then he saw a sprint distance race in St. Petersburg
three years ago "and I got bitten." He joined a Triathlon
Club there at 33 then, considered old for a triathlete.
He could run just fine, and his bike riding im-
proved steadily once he learned how to set his bike up
and his proper position on it.
Swimming was something else. He couldn't.
So he started lessons, working from the dog paddle
of that Jacksonville event to respectable locomotion
through the water.
He trained and trained and entered his first full-
length triathlon in Claremont, Calif., in October 1996
and "did OK, but I was glad just to finish." He trained
and trained some more and did the same competition
last fall and finished 100th out of 700 triathletes "and
boy, was I happy." He backed up those two full com-
petitions with about 40 shorter ones.
And now he's training and training, between shifts
as bartender at the Azure Tides beach bar on Lido Key.
His wife Rita often keeps up with him on roller blades
in the shorter races.
He swims 2.4 miles three times a week at a
Sarasota pool and once a week in the Gulf of Mexico.
He runs four times a week.

Anna Maria by choice
He rides his bike four times a week, up Longboat
Key and Anna Maria Island and back. He takes that
long way because "the islands are so peaceful and
beautiful, and Anna Maria has so much vitality that
helps me along." He also keeps in touch with fellow
triathlete Brad Illing, who runs Florida Sports Out-
let in Holmes Beach and competes in Ironman
events.

It is important to hit the peak of condition just at
the time of the competition, Bennett said. He may
not be at peak yet, but it's hard to tell. He appears to
be as solid as a rock, slim and muscular and built the
way everyone knows he himself should be.
In Hawaii, everybody starts at once: 1,500 people
churn the water together, change clothing and jump on
bicycles, then change again and run. Eating energy bars
and gels and bananas, pretzels whose salt helps avert

Gatorade before they feel the need, for "once you start

How hot can it get?
The answer has to be, "Pretty darn hot," espe-
cially in the kitchen.
I know two solutions to the heat of Florida sum-
mers, one is to dine out as often as possible. That's
a pretty good option considering restaurants are less
crowded, dining rooms are usually nice and cool and
lots of summer specials feature foods as light and
cool as a breeze, yet very fulfilling.
Such as key lime pie. Although dessert is very
fulfilling.
Just kidding. I recently discovered new items on
an addendum to the regular menu at Shells restaurant
in Holmes Beach. This menu features one of my all-
time favorite foods crab. Lots of crab. And their
crab Louie- salad is just the ticket when you're
searching for something cool, tasty and filling.
Rotten Ralph's in Anna Maria has a great black-
ened Caesar salad that refreshes and you can get
shrimp with your Caesar at the Mar Vista on
Longboat Key.
My second option is to grill at home. The impor-
tant thing to remember is to keep it simple. It's quick
work, fast and easy, if you make it that way. And if
you're the griller, the less time outdoors in the heat,
the better.
The first thing to remember is to get the grill
good and ready before you start. Pre-heating the grill
is important and it prevents you from standing over
the grill waiting for things to happen. Start the grill,
put it on high, get the actual grill surface red hot,
(which also burns off any remnants of past barbe-
cues) and then turn it down to the appropriate tem-
perature when you're ready to start the food or
not.

I like steak charred on the outside and medium
rare inside, and that's hard to do on a gas grill. That
is, unless you tip the grill surface on one corner un-
til it's sitting on the coals and weight it down with
the steaks. Yes, it flares up, but isn't that the point?
That's the obvious grill fare that and burgers,
hot dogs and barbecued chicken. But you can do a
lot more.
Grilled shrimp is great. Salmon is terrific. And
you can do a lot to make it more than just "grilled."
Baste it, marinate it or smoke it!
Basting is done while the food is on the fire and
salmon is the best when enhanced with maple syrup.
Real maple syrup adds flavor without seriously
sweetening the delicate taste of salmon and once it's
on the platter, a splash of chardonnay or sauterne,
topped with crunchy pine nuts will leave you smell-
ing like a gourmand.
Shrimp is tasty when coated with Cajun or Ja-
maican jerk seasonings. A good tip is to spray sea-
food first with cooking oil and the new garlic spray.
(I got mine at Star Fish Company in Cortez.) It's
delicious and easy. Imagine, you get a full clove of
garlic in about eight sprays. That's a lot easier than
peeling, chopping and pressing garlic cloves.
For some foods, marinating is essential. A Lon-
don broil is a good example. It can be tough without
the benefit of a tenderizing marinade and slicing the
meat properly after it's cooked is critical.
You might only think of smoking fish, but other
foods do greatin the new easy-to-use smoker grills.
Chicken is always good but turkey is terrific. The
trick is to use a meat thermometer to know when it's
done.
Once again, here's a repeat of my favorite lamb
recipe, perfect for entertaining. Most of the work is
done far in advance and it serves a boatload of
people. I like to put out fresh fruit and a yogurt
dressing for nibbles before a pre-sunset dinner. And
grill before dark so there's no mistaking when the
meat is perfectly done.
We sit down to a Caesar salad while the finished

meat awaits carving. You should let it stand about
eight minutes. You'll find potato salad (pick up the
perfect recipe from Jessie's Island Store) and cold
asparagus spears with a touch of Hollandaise (try
Joy of Cooking's blender Hollandaise) for perfect
accompaniments to this grilled lamb. Never mind
heating up the kitchen.
Call to order ahead from the butcher and be sure
to ask them to de-bone and butterfly the leg of lamb
for you and confirm removal of a gland that
makes lamb taste "gamey" if left in. The de-boned
leg of lamb should serve six to eight persons easily.
Prepare the marinade/basting sauce ahead (still
no stove top cooking).
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 minced clove of garlic
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1/4 teaspoon ginger
2 tablespoons olive oil

over town, or if you must, buy a plant. It's that im-
portant.
Blend all but the oil. Add the oil and whip until
you achieve a mayonnaise-like texture.
Place the lamb in a roasting pan and pour half
the marinade over the fat side and "spray" with gar-
lic. Turn and repeat. Marinate at room temperature
at least one hour, turning and re-basting often.
Grilling! Prepare hot coals as if you were cook-
ing thick steaks. When the coals are ready, place
lamb fat side down and cook about 15 minutes or
until the fire gets too hot. Douse big flames but a
little char is OK. Turn lamb over for another 15-20
minutes. Turn it back to the fat side, cooking for a
few additional minutes.
Repeat until done to your liking but keep in
mind, it's best on the medium-rare side. Guests who
want something a little more done should opt for 20
seconds in the microwave rather than overcooking.
Test for doneness by cutting into the thickest
part before removing from the grill. Let stand for
eight minutes before carving lengthwise against the

grain into thin slices.
And better double the recipe for the marinade/
basting sauce because it's great as a sauce with the
finished lamb.
You can also do veggies on the grill painlessly
with the new coated grill accessories, baskets and
trays that keep smaller items from falling into the
fire.
But here's one tip for food that's really best
cooked in the microwave. Corn on the cob. And it's
fresh and plentiful right now.
Yes, it's true. Microwave corn on the cob is
easier than boiling water and there's absolutely no
flavor loss. The corn steams in its own "jacket," and
it's more convenient than handling hot corn husks
charred by the grill.
Just buy corn that hasn't been shucked and don't
shuck it. Put it in the microwave, husk and all. Cook
about two to three minutes per ear in a high-powered
microwave and use hot pads to peel away the husk
and silk.
Just grasp the stalk end with one hot pad and grip
one side of the husk and silk with the other and peel
it off. It comes off so easy like it was buttered -
you won't believe your eyes.
And flavor? ... just pass me the pepper!

Officer Sloan commended

for wrestling gun from

Bradenton suspect


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Bradenton Beach Officer Charles
Sloan received a commendation from
Chief Jack Maloney for his actions in ar-
resting a suspect who allegedly attempted
to murder him.
The incident happened on June 2
when Sloan was traveling east on Cortez
Road West at 80th Street about 4:30 p.m.
and saw a disabled vehicle.
Sloan was flagged down by Robert J.
Demino of Bradenton who had attempted
to aid the driver of the disabled vehicle.
Demino said he ceased his efforts after
realizing that the driver, Michael J. Chely,
53, of Bradenton, was intoxicated.
Sloan approached Chely and noted
that he appeared not only intoxicated but
under the influence of a narcotic. Sloan
notified dispatch of the situation and asked
for a Manatee County sheriffs deputy to
respond.
Sloan said that Chely was having
trouble maintaining his balance and almost
fell as Sloan guided him back to the ve-
hicle and placed him in the driver's seat.
Sloan then asked for Chely's driver's li-
cense and said when Chely began-to pull
it out of his pocket, Sloan saw a bag of
marijuana under his wallet.
Sloan said that as he reached for the
marijuana, Chely grabbed his left hand,
reached between the arm rests and pulled
out a gun, then pointed it 12 inches from
his face. Sloan said Chely's finger was oni
the trigger but before Chely could pull it,
Sloaw grabbed the gun with both hands
and attempted to twist it away.
Sloan wrestled with Chely, attempting
to get the gun away or Chely's finger off
the trigger, said the report. After calling for
help on his radio, Sloan was able to draw
his gun. He said he pointed it at Chely and
said, "Let go or I'll shoot."


Chely replied, "Go ahead, shoot me,"
Sloan said.
Sloan made one final attempt to get
the gun from Chely and was successful
and held Chely until backup arrived.
Sheriff's Deputy Ed Georgie helped
Sloan handcuff Chely. As other deputies
arrived to help, Sloan checked the gun and
found that it was fully loaded. He secured
the gun and the marijuana.
Deputies searched Chely's vehicle
and found a pack of rolling papers, an-
other bag of marijuana, a small amount
of cocaine and a gun case containing a
magazine and two boxes of ammuni-
tion.
Sloan ran a check on Chely and found
he was a convicted felon on federal pro-
bation for bank robbery. Chely's charges
included attempted murder of a law en-
forcement officer, carrying a concealed
firearm and possession of a firearm by a
convicted felon.
Maloney noted that "the incident
could have had quite a different ending. A
routine police action of helping a disabled
motorist turned deadly and could have
easily ended in death. Officer Sloan's ac-
tions not only protected his life but even
that of the defendant."
Sloan had every legal and moral jus-
tification to shoot Chely in self-defense
but chose to continue his attempts to gain
control of Chely's gun, which he did with
no serious injuries, Maloney note.d.
"A great ending to a potential catas-
trophe and all because of Officer Sloan's
professional conduct coupled with the
moral compunction to do what was right,"
Maloney said. "Officer Sloan served the
.community very well under very danger-
ous circumstances. His actions reflected
well on himself as a police officer and on
the Bradenton Beach Police Department
as a whole."

By Cynthia Finn
Islander Correspondent
Professional and amateur fisher-
men and women of all ages a're invited
to hook the legal big one in the 6th
annual "Fishing the Islands"
sportfishing tournament coming up
the weekend of Friday, June 19,
through Sunday, June 21.
Pre-registration is required. A
maximum of five anglers per boat, in-
cluding the captain, will be allowed.
The non-refundable entry fee of $200
per boat is due by this Sunday, June
14. Late registration, after June 14,
will be $325 per boat and there will be
no exceptions. All those who register
by June 14 will receive a bonus bag
with gifts worth more than $100.
Cash prizes totaling $8,000 each in
the inshore and offshore divisions will
be awarded, with first place earning
$5,000, second place $2,000 and third
place $1,000. Merchandise prizes with
an additional value of more than $4,000
will also be distributed.
Proceeds from this event, which is
produced by Bill and Jennifer
Lowman of Island Discount Tackle,
benefit the youth programs of the
Anna Maria Island Community Center
where both Lowmans volunteer their
time and effort in an assortment of
youth-sports and fundraising arenas.
Last year's tourney resulted in a
$10,000 donation to the Center.
"Fishing the Islands" has become
one of the area's most prestigious and
competitive angler contests. The Sun-
day awards banquet, which is open to
anyone and everyone, has turned into
"the" place to be for a fun-filled fam--
ily-oriented Father's Day celebration.
The noon to 4 p.m. party in the air-
conditioned Community Center gymna-
sium comes complete with picnic-style
lunch, live entertainment of the musical
and just comical variety, merchandise
door prizes galore and lots of kids from
infant through octogenarian range.
Among the 300-plus party-goers,
there's also always a healthy supply
of successful team and individual
fishers and, of course, the ever-
present crowd of still-boastful-but-
blame-it-on-El Nifio/La Nifia grou-
pers check that gripers. Talk about
fish tales!
Friday night's kickoff Captain's
I


Meeting, also at the Center, has become
an event in itself with cash bar and food,
live entertainment, distribution of
check-in packages and, on a serious
note, a discussion of rules. One member
of each entry crew must be present and,
to avoid any post-tournament confusion,

Heat brings thoughts of the Carolinas


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
Ah, the Carolinas. That's where many of the local
elite flee to escape our summer heat.
But in recent years the Carolinas has become much
more than just a place to cool off. You'll recall men-
tion in this column a few months ago of a dreaded new
fish disease originating there that seems to be spread-
ing and is now feared to be showing up in Florida's St.
John's River.
That came out of North Carolina.
Now it looks as if South Carolina is trying to make
up for that problem. In the latest issue of "The Marine
Scene," published by John Stevely at Florida Sea
Grant, there's mention of a new marine bacterium that
could someday rival penicillin in its disease-fighting
ability.
Maybe this is the flip side of "One hand gives and
the other takes away."
Anyway, in recent decades, several antibiotics
have become so widely used that some disease-causing
bacteria have adapted and become resistant to them.
The common staph germ is one, tuberculosis is another.
So researchers continually hunt for new antibiot-
ics that could be used before current medicines become
totally ineffective. Hence the excitement over this new

May 31, Search and-rescue /assistance. Station
Cortez received a report of a passenger suffering from
decompression sickness aboard a vessel off Venice. A
casino boat heard the call and responded, since medi-
cal assistance was available on the boat. The patient
was transported to Venice Inlet to awaiting paramed-
ics and taken to the hospital for treatment.

discovery.,
Sea Grant Researcher Duane Yock, a University of
South Carolina microbiologist, says this new microbe
already shows promise against TB, as well as a related
disease that kills many AIDS patients. Where it can go
from here is anybody's guess.
"It appears to be an antibiotic not yet known,"
Yock reports.
Now if they could just bottle some of that cool
mountain air and ship it south, the Carolinas could re-
ally help us out.

Bigger snook?
Snook season closed June 1, of course, but that
hasn't stopped the discussion over changing snook
regulations in Florida. Faced with what's been de-
scribed as "overwhelming opposition" to reducing
the daily bag limit, Florida Marine Fisheries officials
seem to have opted for minor changes.
The commission now proposes increasing the
minimum size by two inches, to 26 inches. In addition,
the proposed new rules will eliminate keeping one fish
over 34 inches. The two fish you could take home
would be 26-34 inches period.
This latest proposal will be up for final vote when
the commission meets in Fort Myers Sept. 9-11.

Coming to lunch
Swimmers at Siesta Beach had a scare last week.
A pair of hammerhead sharks chased a large tarpon into
the beach swimming area shortly before noon Saturday
and decided not to wait for the official lunch hour.
The sharks proceeded to devour the tarpon right in
front of dozens of bathers leaving a large pool of blood
and a carcass floating around. Needless to say, lifeguards
didn't have any trouble getting swimmers out.
The good folks at Mote Marine Laboratory tell me
that hammerheads commonly follow the tarpon migra-
tion for the simple reason that they like to eat them. So
if you're in or on the water these days of high season
tarpon fishing, keep a watchful eye out.
After all, you can never be sure who might be com-
ing for dinner.

How bad?
A report from the Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection says half of the state's waterways
aren't suitable for fishing. But get this, they say that's
an improvement.
DEP's point is that industrial pollution is way
down from, say, 20 years ago. "Back in the 1970s, there
were literally dozens of industrial waste dischargers
discharging into our surface waters, and we're down to
single digits now," one DEP official explained.
"That has made a tremendous difference in our
surface waters."
Population growth and accompanying develop-
ment are the strongest threats to water quality in
Florida, the report said. Each time it rains, the street and
road runoff carry oil, fertilizers, pesticides and other
pollutants into state waterways.
Not much new there. It doesn't take a rocket sci-
entist to understand that every new lawn and new car
just adds to the problems.
But until folks understand that each of us needs to
care for the environment, and try to preserve it be-
cause it's the most valuable thing we have the prob-
lem will just go on and on.
"There is no solution," my lovely old nQw-de-
parted mother-in-law used to say. "Seek it lovinglyy"
See you next week.

Tarpon fever hits offshore waters


By Capt. Mike Heistand
Angling action this week is focused on tarpon, with
silver kings roaming off the beaches and entering the
passes into the bay. They're everywhere out there, and
some tarpon have been caught as big as 120 pounds.
Other action in the backwater includes catch-and-re-
lease snook, redfish and trout. Offshore, snapper and
grouper are the featured catches.
Fishers at the Rod and Reel Pier report catches of
snapper, mackerel, reds and catch-and-release snook.
Ken at the Anna Maria City Pier said anglers are
reeling in a lot of sharks, a few sting rays, mackerel,
mangrove snapper and are seeing a lot of tarpon, but
have no hook-ups to date.
Annie's Bait & Tackle said that Capt. Zack on the
Dee Jay II said catch-and-release snook fishing is very
enjoyable. He's putting charters onto reds to 30 inches,
trout to 26, bluefish up to four pounds and there are lots
and lots of tarpon. The silver kings are hungriest in the
morning along the beaches and in the bay, and Capt.
Zack is getting some up to 120 pounds.
Carl at Perico Harbor Bait & Tackle said wade
fishers are doing good catching big bull redfish, plus a
few trout that seem to be scattered around the holes in
the flats. Permit are hanging around the reefs offshore,
and Carl mentioned the best bait seems to be small
crabs, which they have for sale.
Capt. Rick Gross said he caught a few permit this
week, plus plenty of redfish.
Capt. Mark Bradow said he has spent most of his
time chasing tarpon which don't require much chas-
ing, because Capt. Mark says silver king are just about
everywhere now.
On my boat Magic we're catching mostly redfish
right now, with some trout up to 24 inches long and
flounder to 21 inches.
Capt. Tom Chaya said trout, reds and small

sharks were his highlights of the week.
Capt. Glenn Corder said he's getting good catches
of grouper in the deep waters of the Gulf as well as lots
of snapper lane, mangrove and yellowtail.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said sharks are
betting caught off the local piers and tarpon are being


spotted every day now. There are also some mackerel
being caught in the passes. Offshore trolling is very
productive, with black fin tuna, wahoo, dolphin and
even a few cobia being caught.
Good luck and good fishing.

course and afterwards at Dirty Moe's restaurant for an
awards banquet and. barbecue.
The action got started with a putting contest with
the objective being to negotiate a nine-hole course in
the least amount of putts on the practice putting green.
After all contestants had tried their luck Tim Lease
and 13-year-old Ryan Quigley were tied with 16 putts
apiece so they went head to head in a nine-hole play-
off.
The two remained tied after nine holes so they
went at it again, only this time it was sudden death,
where the winner of one hole would walk off with the
putting championship.
Lease and Quigley matched each other putt for putt
until the 18th extra hole, when Quigley three putted.
Lease then sent his first putt aggressively past the hole
by three feet, but calmly sank the comebacker to notch
the win.
The rest of the day didn't come close to matching
that drama, but it was competitive none the less -
thanks to the purchase of many mulligans! Three teams
tied at 13 under par, which tournament officials broke
by comparing scores on the hardest holes. The winners
turned out to be the foursome of Joe Angelo, Dan
Haynes, Dan Pearson and Jim Wahl.
Finishing second were Tim Jones, Doug Larrson,
Dan Gierlach and Mark Hone while Wren Glanz,
David Remont, Rex Hagen and Ron Kilner finished
third.
Closest-to-the-pin winners were Angelo on hole
four and Gerry Dephoure on number 17. Longest drive
went to Chip Denny, who obviously was born to be a
golfer with a name like Chip.
If you didn't make it out to Palma Sola, you missed
a great time so keep your eyes open for next year's
tournament.
The Island Football Club is holding adult practices on
Wednesday at G.T. Bray Park in Bradenton. The team is
preparing to play in the upcoming Mutiny Cup with a
chance to play for the championship at Tampa Stadium -
and trying to get an early start on next season.
Any adults interested in lacing up the boots and
trying out for the team are invited to come out. Prac-
tice will run from 7 p.m. until dark. For more informa-
tion or to report sports news, call me at 778-3153.
