Bradenton annexes north Perico Island


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The Bradenton City Council last week voted to
annex the northern portion of Perico Island over pro-
tests by residents who want it preserved as a park.
"We're only annexing a piece of property," Mayor
Bill Evers noted. "Anyone thinking that this land is not
going to be developed is not living in the real world."
In April, five owners of the majority of the prop-
erty petitioned the city to annex their parcels from the
county and establish a Planned Development Project
classification. The annexation includes 416.42 acres of
uplands and submerged bottom lands.
.Manatee County commissioners agreed recently to



Anna Maria City


'sense of


security' false?
By Bonner Presswood
"I want to talk about security. I think we've been
presented with a false sense of security," resident Judy
Adams told the Anna Maria City Commission last
week.
"Our police reports [in the newspaper] are some-
times blank. Yet, we have stealing, robbing and vandal-
ism and I think the commission should look into this.
"We have 18-year-old and younger vagrants sleep-
ing in abandoned cars and properties. I talk to police
who say they spend nights playing cat and mouse with
these kids. Other residents have no idea because the
robberies are not reported in the newspaper.
"Are you aware that we have no vagrancy law? We
can't even have these vagrants escorted out of the city.
"You need to give the police some authority."
Adans said the vagrants she's referring to are ih a
gang known as Island Thugs. "It may sound silly, but
not when it happens to you," she said.
"I've never liked curfews but perhaps we have to
consider it. I want to go to bed and sleep without
pounding on my door and calling police," Adams said.
"I want some enforcement given to our police."
Commissioner Robert McElheny said he doesn't
think the city's sheriff's deputies patrol as they should.
"You and I have addressed this Mr. Mayor, but
they're still in the sub-station or at the pier eating. I
don't think we get our dollars worth," said McElheny.
Adams said hers is not a problem with the police,
but the fact that they have no vagrancy law and no cur-
few to enforce.
"They're marauding every night but we have no
laws," Adams said.
Commissioner Doug Wolfe said, "If we need a
vagrancy law, we'll get on that post haste."
Following a short discussion unrelated to the gang .
problems, the meeting ended.


Island horror story
By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
The only one not surprised was Paul Durand. Cliff
Wade certainly was, unpleasantly and pleasantly.
The other night Wade left his home in Anna Maria
City to drive his fiance home to Holmes Beach. For a
reason he doesn't recall, he put his wallet on the hood
of his Jeep while he got keys from his truck.
He didn't see his wallet on the hood.
Next morning he got a phone call from Durand, a
North Bay Boulevard neighbor he hadn't met. He had
Wade's wallet, Durand said, had found it on Gulf Drive.
Come and get it, he said. He was at work at Cox
Chevrolet, 2900 Cortez Road W., Bradenton.
Wade asked apprehensively, "Is there still four or
five hundred dollars in it?"
"I don't know how much." said Durand. "hut what


reserve the right to sue the city over the annexation.
Commissioners said it is inconsistent with a Florida
statute that disallows annexation which would result in
the creation of an enclave of developed property.
The annexation does not include the portion of the
island where Leverock's restaurant and Galati's marina
are located and this portion would become an enclave sur-
rounded by city property but requiring county services.
Bradenton City Attorney Bill Lisch disagreed.
"It already exists as an enclave by the statutory
definition," Lisch said. "The statute prohibits the cre-
ation of an enclave and you can't create something that
already exists. This is reducing an enclave."
Jerry West, the city's planning director, said the


has happy ending
was in it is in it."
Wade was sick with worry. He is a self-employed
carpenter who hasn't worked since his motorcycle and a
car went one-on-one 13 weeks ago and put his leg in a
cast, and he can't work for another couple of months at
least. He really needed that money.
He drove to Cox, met Durand and got his wallet.
There it was, $500 untouched.
"Good Lord!" he says now. "There he was, money
dropping out of the sky and he didn't touch it. Never
in my life will I say anything bad about used car sales-
men! Especially Cox salesmen."
For his part, Durand is surprised that anyone is sur-
prised. He has worked at Cox only a couple of weeks,
coming here recently from Port Charlotte and *.'.iling in

turning the wallet:"Well. heck. it wasn't mine. it was hi'."


county's densities on the property range from three to
six units per acre depending on the location.
'We must abide by the county's zoning until we
amend our comprehensive plan," he explained. "Our
current comprehensive plan says it's 10 units per acre,
but our plan does not apply to this until we amend it.
To be in compliance with state law, we'll have to re-
duce it to three units per acre."
West said taxes from any new development there
would help offset infrastructure requirements in the
city's older neighborhoods.

Anna Maria City bike path on hold until '99


By Bonner Presswood
The consensus of Anna Maria City commission-
ers is to wait for the Florida Department of Trans-


... and where's

our playground?
Anna Maria City commissioners agreed to
look into the lack of playground equipment at
Bayfront Park in the city and to look into the
lease agreement between the city and Manatee
County.
Mayor Chuck Shumard said, "They took our
jungle gym down because it was painted with
lead paint. They took out the swings because they
were frayed. We're left with nothing."
Commissioner George McKay suggested the
city look into its 20-plus-year-old agreement and
critique the lease. "Maybe we should have a se-
rious talk with them."


portation to build the city's bike path.
"We were going to try to get with DOT and get
reimbursed early and each time we try it seems the
process is harder, so we're just going to wait 'til
1999," Mayor Chuck Shumard said at last week's
commission workshop.
Public Works Director Phil Charnock said the
way the state works with bidding, he'd have to have
someone specially certified for road work. "You
have $213,000 and the way the state does it, for ex-
ample, they couldn't do it for twice that price," he
said.
Charnock said a bikeway from Maple to Palm
near Bayfront Park would cost approximately
$67,000 for a pervious surface such as paver brick.
He said, "The city would be able to do North
Shore or Jacaranda Boulevard [to state standards]
but not the entire project."
Charnock made what he called "one more plea.
We have a quote, but for $25,000, and DOT can't do
it for the price. But we can put a path from the city


entrance to Willow, where bikers could turn to go up
North Shore, and tie it in with the upcoming paving
project. You have to decide tonight," he said.
Commissioner George McKay said he'd spend
the $25,000 for a bikeway rather than a bike path but
he'd rather use the money to pave another street.
".Either leave it in reserve or pave another
street," McKay said.
Commissioner Doug Wolfe said, "The consen-
sus is the bikepath as such is caput."
Shumard said some residents of Tarpon want it
finished and some don't.
Charnock suggested Jacaranda, with not enough
funds existing to pave Tarpon Street.
"We could consider Maxine Way, around the
Anna Maria Island Community Center soccer and
baseball field. That's 1,500 linear feet but it could go
elsewhere because if baseball and soccer go to
Holmes Beach, we could get that right of way back."
Wolfe concluded the debate saying, "Let public
works go out and find another nasty street."


Marina tours ongoing
Bradenton Beach city commissioners toured the
Bradenton Beach Marina Monday, location of a
possible city acquisition. Marina owner Allan Bazzy
has proposed the city buy the marina for $6.2 million
- "I cannot sell for less than $6.2 million," he said.
The marina has four businesses on the site, just
south of the Cortez Bridge on Anna Maria Sound.
Present on Monday's tour of the marina with Bazzy,
pictured center, were Mayor Connie Drescher,
Commissioners Gail Cole and Berneitta Kays, and
Public Works Director Buddy Watts. The marina
issue will come up at the Thursday, June 18, city
commission meeting, which begins at 1 p.m.

Bradenton councilman rips Islanders for 'overdevelopment'


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
Company said his family has owned property on Perico
since the 1940s and it has historically been farmed.
"We've looked at the long-term viability of the
property and given its existing use, I would say that's
in question as it stands today," Preston said. "It makes
sense for the city to increase its tax base. We look for-
ward to working with the city on this property."
Attorney Gordon Schiff, representing the land
owners, said the annexation is a logical extension of the
city and will insure the long-term economic viability of
the land and contribute to the economic growth of the
city.
"With regard to the future land use, there will be
comparable densities on this property if it's annexed,"
Schiff said.
"The city has a good set of regulations regarding.
the preservation of the fragile environment, specifically
the mangrove areas," noted Tom McCollum, a planner
with Zollar, Najar and Shroyer Inc. who also represents
the property owners. "There are utilities available to
serve this project; if and when it gets developed."

Island concerned about
development
Sue Normand, chairman of the Holmes Beach
Planning Commission, said development of Perico will
endanger the ecosystem, create evacuation problems
and increase traffic on the causeway.
"In the event that the city does annex Perico Island,
we would ask that the city consider purchasing the
property as a natural preserve," Normand noted. "If that
isn't possible, we ask that the city adopt very stringent
codes for any future development in that area."


Normand said developers should be required to
develop an alternative route for residents to access and
evacuate the property or work with the state to develop
additional lanes on Manatee Avenue between the prop-
erty and the mainland.
Patrick'Farragher of Perico Isles said the annex-
ation will disenfranchise the 200 voters there and
they'll have no say in what happens in their commu-
nity.
Archeologist Brad William Burger made a plea for
the archeological sites on the island. He said archaeo-
logical excavations conducted on the island by the
Smithsonian Institution in 1933 and 1934 uncovered
230 burials sites and 1,000 artifacts. Subsequent exca-
vations and studies have uncovered material that dates
between 70 BC and 1200 AD.
"If you choose to proceed with this annexation, I
would respectfully request you consider some stipula-
tions," Burger said. "Place conservation easements on
the known recorded archeological sites. Prior to any
development in the area, require that archaeological
surveys be done and easements be placed for any newly
discovered significant sites coming out of such survey
work."
Jo Williams urged the council to "cease thinking of
wetlands as land just sitting there waiting to be devel-
oped" and consider purchasing and preserving the
property. She said wetlands serve purposes that tran-
scend development such as providing nurseries for fish,
a buffer zone against hurricanes and shelter for plants.
animals and birds.
Several other speakers expressed the same senti-
ment and Ann Rogers of the Perico Bay Club presented
petitions with 700 signatures of residents opposed to
development of the island.


City responds
Councilman Gene Gallo blasted Normand.
"I don't know how long you've been on that
[Holmes Beach] planning commission but that's the
most overdeveloped Island I've ever been on in my life.
It was permitted to be developed with no concern about
what it would do to the evacuation of that Island and
in our city.
"Now you're saying, 'Whoa. Time out. We want
to help you plan something in the city.' What? You
couldn't even control development on the Island. Don't
come in the City of Bradenton and tell us how to do it.
I resent that."
Gallo said if a developer comes forth, he will "walk
the walk and fight the fight" to make sure it's devel-
oped properly.
West noted that the city's comprehensive plan does
protect archeological sites and wetlands.
Councilwoman Michele Weaver said development
of the island is likely and urged opponents to "have
faith in us to make sure that it's developed correctly
with all the conservation, wetland and archeological
concerns in mind."
Councilwoman Marianne Barnebey agreed.
Councilman Jeff Carman, the lone dissenter to the
proposal, said that the city shouldn't acquire new prop-
erty when there's a great need to renovate the infra-
structure in the older areas of the city.
"Whiting Preston and his family have been here for
years and are very sensitive to the needs of this com-
munity." Evers stressed. "We're still going to be there
to oversee it but I have enough faith in the family in
what they have contributed to this community over the
years that they're not going to destroy this piece of
property."






THE ISLANDER BYSTANDER N JUNE 17, 1998 0 PAGE 3 IE


The Rev. Wayne Kirk has resigned as pastor of
Roser Memorial Community Church due to personal
reasons.
In a letter dated June 9 to Kay Beverly, chair of the
congregation, Kirk said his marriage has been suffer-
ing under strain and he resigned in order to concentrate
on restoring his marital relationship.
Kirk's letter was read to the congregation at the
church service on June 14.
"It has been a pleasure to have served as pastor
here at Roser for the past three years," Kirk said in the
letter. "In that time I have delighted in seeing first hand
the work of Christ within our midst and I am sure His
gracious hand will prosper us all in the months and
years to come."


Kirk came to Roser three years ago from the Chi-
cago area. He and his wife Eve have three daughters -
one a student at the University of Chicago, another a
student at Manatee Community College and the third
daughter attends Manatee High School.
The church's board of deacons held a special meet-
ing June 15 and named Rev. Michael Smith and his
wife Rev. Jan Smith of Anna Maria as interim pastors.
The Smiths moved to Anna Maria in 1990 from
Lawrenceville, Ga., and have owned property on the
Island since the mid-1970s.
Smith said he looks forward to the opportunity for
he and his wife to co-pastor and they will begin work
at the church following a short trip regarding a family
medical emergency.


Bradenton Beach motel expansion OK'd


By Paul Roat
Opting to let the neighbors work out their own
problems, planners in Bradenton Beach approved a
four-unit expansion to Frank and Valerie Cacossa for
the Sand & Sea Motel at 2412-2416 Gulf Drive.
The neighborhood dispute pitted the Sultenfuss
family against the Cacossas. The Sultenfuss family has
a beachfront house that has in the past been accessed
through a parking lot at the motel. Permission for that
access had been through a license agreement, which
was revoked last year.
Mark Sultenfuss had requested a permanent ease-
ment across the Cacossas property. The Cacossas ar-
gued that they did not wish to give away their property.
The matter came up during the motel expansion
request, and stalled planners until the city attorney
could look at the matter and offer advice.
"The real issue is whether the development plan for
the motel meets the conditions of the Land Development
Code," City Attorney Alan Prather said. "A collateral is-
sue is the access provided to the neighbor's property, and
a new license agreement will provide for that.


"The reasonable solution is to return to the status
quo before all this blew up," Prather added, with plan-
ners nodding in agreement.
"We're being asked to be referees in a friendship,"
Planning and Zoning Board member Pete Milazzo said.
Gary Lewison offered another license to access the
Sultenfuss property. Lewison represents G & G Motel
Associates, which manages the motel. The agreement
is the same as the previous agreement between the
Sultenfusses and the Cacossas.
Another solution to the problem opening an alley/
easement from 25th Street to the Sultenfuss property -
is complicated 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 any improvements to the sandy stretch.
In the end, planners voted unanimously to allow
the development plan for the motel based on the build-
ing official's recommendations regarding parking and
as long as access to the Sultenfuss property is provided.

Commission approves more city hall changes


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The Homes Beach City Commission last week ap-
proved more changes to the city hall construction plan.
Changes include:
Installing a new water line between Flotilla and
Marina Drives between the city hall and the Island
Branch Library at a cost of $19,599.
Adjusting a manhole rim in the garage driveway
at a cost of $363.
Adjusting pipe along Marina Drive at a cost of


$6,460.
"The water main extension is required for the fire
hydrant and fire sprinkler system," architect Pat Fletcher
explained. "The location of the fire hydrant was as re-
quested by the fire marshal. The location not only serves
the new municipal complex but also allows the fire depart-
ment to serve the neighboring area more effectively."
The change was due to Manatee County records
that incorrectly indicated the line was six-inches when
it was really four inches, Fletcher said. The larger line
is required for volume and pressure.


'Joyful Noise' energizes congregation

-ovation at its inaugural concert at the church May 31. Lois Lott, director, left, poses with choristers Joshua
Scheible, Grace Sawyer, Hilary Powers, Maya Thompson, Amy Fusco, Christen Franklin, Amber Allen, Joey
Webb, Katie O'Neil and Phelps Tracy. Islander Photo: Edna Tiemann


In addition, contractor Jon Swift will credit the city
for the extra days approved for the construction of the
new 59th Street at the end of the project if they are not
used, Fletcher said. The credit is $194.02 per day, for
a total not to exceed $1,940.20.
The city hall is 24 percent complete, according to
Fletcher. The slabs are poured, red steel columns are set
in place and masons are building the exterior walls.
Mayor Carol Whitmore said the project is ap-
proximately $64,000 over bid, including $35,000 for
the new street.

Vacating alleys heats up Anna Maria meeting


Anna Maria city commissioners discussed every-
thing from bike paths to vagrants and vacating al-
leys at their June 9 workshop.
Always a controversial subject, commissioners
were asked by Kay Beverly of the 700 block of North
Shore Drive to consider vacating an alley adjoining her
property.
Mayor Chuck Shumard said that he and Public
Works Director Phil Charnock had looked at the alley
recently because "people want a new fence and would
like to divide the alley."
Shumard said residents' yards and a screened
porch go over the alley. "If we say we want it, people
are gonna be mad," he said.
Beverly said, "I don't want to own it. I just want a
fence to contain palms. Most of us with fences don't
use it, even though we maintain it. If we can't use the
alley, I want it cleaned up."
Commissioner George McKay said when the city
considered vacating alleys and rights of way seven
years ago, "it was like we were raising taxes 5 mills.
We should take proper force to prevent people from
misusing property."
Charnock said only six people are involved but to
save the city lawsuits, "'I have to go after everybody.
Maybe 10 to 12 families [on this alley] would have to
remove property. There's a shed, screen enclosure ...
with a 10-foot setback it would be impossible."
Resident Carol Ann Magill said, "You set a prece-
dent if you let people build without proper permits or
taking city property."
"I can't believe we're having this discussion"
Georgia VanCleave, a resident of Magnolia who was
recently involved in a dispute with the city over use of
the easement behind her home for a drainage project,
said. "I can't understand the discrimination if you give
some people a vacated alleyway when in fact you en-
forced taking your vacated alley on South Bay Boule-
vard.
"The city needed the alleyway and the city set
about to establish, and won, that alleyway when it had
never appeared on any of the owners' surveys.
"You're opening a can of worms if you do this."


Resident Bill Worth said, "The word vacate stirs up
trouble in this city."
He said that the idea of the city's liability is a "cop
out. If the city's not going to use and maintain the al-
ley, the city should close it and let the property own-
ers use it," he said.
Worth said he read that another Island city doesn't
have in its codes a method to vacate because it's not
what they want to do.
"I say close the alley and approach the problems
one by one. Tell the neighbors to get off the alley,"
Worth said.
McKay asked, "Does closing the alley allow prop-
erty owners to use and divide the alley? I thought the
idea of closing alleys was to keep vehicles off."
Magill responded that when the alley between
Spring and Magnolia was closed in November 1979,
the residents got use of five feet but with no fences or
obstructions. The use was for vegetation grass.
Donna Perez of Jacaranda Boulevard wants her
alleyway vacated and asked, "If the five feet were ours,
would it change the setback to build or cage a pool?"
Charnock responded that the five feet of alley, if
vacated, would add to the owner's property for the set-


back.
Resident Judy Adams said, "I see more everyday,
the value of keeping and maintaining those alleys and
easements in the possession of the city. We still need
them for buffers. It's the responsibility of people who
built on them to remove it, not the responsibility of the
city."
Diane Cuniff asked what the liability is to the city.
"Injury," said Charnock. "If someone falls, we're
potentially liable."
Commissioner Doug Wolfe spoke to make two
points of clarification. He said, "The city attorney has
advised us many times that no one can take government
property with the protection of the U.S. Constitution.
People cannot take alleys and yet we know they have."
According to Wolfe, Holmes Beach took a
homeowner to court and the homeowner won because
the city had no use for the property.
Commissioner Max Znika pointed out that the al-
ley adjoining his property has been taken over by fruit
trees and an irrigation system placed by a neighbor.
Worth responded "Wouldn't you come out and
stop me if I was building on city property? Cite them.
Item by item, one at a time."

To vacate or not to vacate...
This is the question.
At least, it's up for consideration in Anna Maria
and Bradenton Beach again.
Ah. But not in Holmes Beach. In Holmes Beach
there is no language in the codes or ordinances provid-
ing for vacating city property.
Commissioners removed the language allowing
procedures for vacating city property when the 1989
comprehensive plan was prepared.
In Anna Maria, long-time resident Bill Worth
summed it up, saying "The word vacate stirs up trouble
in this city."
You needn't have a long memory to recall the
squabble over an alley vacation request from the Sand-
bar restaurant for an expansion project.
Street ends, particularly those with beach accesses,
are sacred. Remember the uproar over the Dooms prop-
erty on Coconut? One city official gave the property
owner permission to landscape (read that block) the
access and the neighbors went ballistic.
We recall a case of street vacation in Sarasota long
ago, allowing the construction of what was touted as a
"benefit for all in downtown," Sarasota Main Plaza. It
went belly up, quickly we might add, and remained
closed for many years until its recent revival as a shop-
ping enclave and Hollywood 20 movie complex.
With the exception of creating one massive park-
ing lot, there was no real purpose to close the street in
Sarasota.
There's no purpose served for the public, the other
1,900-plus residents of Anna Maria City, in vacating
walkways to the beach, rights of way along roads and
alleys between private properties.
Please, just say no to vacating alleyways in Anna
Maria and encourage your city commissioners to en-
courage neighbors to maintain the buffer zone with
passive vegetation.
In Bradenton Beach, a vacation request up for con-
sideration makes more sense. It buffers an area fronting
the Gulf of Mexico to no ones particular benefit -
other than the property owner. Two adjacent Gulffront
parcels on either side had the adjoining alley vacated
long ago, so essentially it is a boxed-in strip of city
property that comes from nowhere and goes nowhere.
The Bradenton Beach City Commission wisely
chose not to vacate two street ends recently.
In this newest consideration, we can see no reason
not to leave well enough alone. The property owner
may wish it vacated for future land use, but in the event
of unforeseen storm damage or other condition, we'd
prefer to consider vacating city property on specific
demanding circumstances.
Sorry to disappoint the vacationers, but we believe
the two sister cities should follow the Holmes Beach
example ... What's a vacation?

Moving has its moments
It has now been about two months since Barbara
and I left Anna Maria Island for our new home in Key
Largo. There are a few things we really miss. The first
is The Islander Bystander.
We have four papers here, two free papers and two
which sell for 25 cents, and all of them put together are
not as informative or entertaining as The Islander.
The Island Fitness Center, with the helpful encour-
agement of all, put us on a track for better health that
will benefit us forever. There is no better haircut for the
money than from Pat and Don's Barber Shop. And Is-
land Package Liquors, with its great selection of wine
and a laugh with Jim, has no equal. With Frank Davis'
help in buying and selling two homes, we were able to
make the moves we wanted with ease. We also miss the
8 a.m. service at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church and Pas-
tor Dan Kilts' brief sermon.
We also will miss some of the greatest friends we
have ever made. But then, they will still be friends at
just four-plus hours away.
At last I think my quest for the elusive dream has
ended. After some 12-plus moves, I now can say what
I have never before said: "This is where I intend to
stay."
The ambiance here is what I have been looking for
all my life.
The best to all on Anna Maria Island.
Clark and Barbara Leips, Key Largo

Thanks for the bike paths
It is truly a miracle concerning the additional fund-
ing Holmes Beach will receive from the Sarasota-
Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization. Let's
hope the funds will be used on the bike paths next year
and not wait until 2003-04.
As we represent bicycle clubs and cyclists in gen-
eral, we would like to thank the following officials.
First, Mayor Carol Whitmore and the city commission
who have been wrangling with the poor funding they
had to work with. Joe McClash of the MPO, who re-
alized the projects in Sarasota and Manatee counties
were under-funded and appropriated the funds to be
awarded to Holmes Beach.

We wish to truly thank John Ringling. We are sure
he is turning in his grave, that the historical Ringling
Towers are being torn down. It is a shame it will be no
more, but in a way it will benefit the communities in a
big way.
Finally, readers of The Islander Bystander won't
have to read our "frustrated" letter complaining to the
Florida Department of Transportation and city officials
any more cyclists will be able to ride safely around
the Island at last. Try riding a bike instead of using your
car to ease traffic.
See you on the bike paths!
Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Natt, Holmes Beach

ASK raises awareness
Many thanks to The Islander Bystander for provid-
ing coverage of Alliance for Safe Kids' (ASK's) recent
Power Walk Against Sexual Abuse.
The purpose of the Power Walk was to raise aware-
ness of the problem of sexual abuse in our community.
When intelligent adults deny or minimize the preva-
lence of sexual abuse, sex offenders have fertile ground
to continue their actions. But, as publications like yours
participate in raising community awareness of this
problem, we will start to see Manatee County become
safer for all of our children.
We invite everyone to join us next spring for the
third annual Power Walk and become part of the solu-
tion.
Thanks again for your part in helping us to reach
our goal of greater community awareness.
Jane Pavich, ASK Director

THOSE WERE THE FAYS

Part 3, Turn-of-the-Century Anna Maria
by June Alder


Imagine ice for sale in Florida. What would they think of next?


NEWS FLASHES


The people of Manatee County
greeted the Twentieth Century with
high hopes for the future. Their confi-
dence shines through these items in the
Manatee River Journal for the year
1900:
Jan. 4: Braidentown and Manatee
County start with the most excellent
prospects before them for the new year.
The opening of the Bank of Manatee on
New Year's Day is a notable achieve-
ment. Let's all make a strong pull for
the advancement of many new enter-
prises during the year.
Jan. 19: Mr. Clarence W. Moore, a
wealthy scientist of Philadelphia, is
cruising along the coast in the house-
boat Gopher, delving into the numerous
Indian mounds. Thursday the Gopher
tied up at the Braidentown wharf for
two weeks.
Feb. 16: Braidentown is alive with
strangers from all part of the country.
Some come for business while others
come simply for pleasure and to escape
the wintry blasts of their Northern
homes. Of this latter class we are glad
to note that many are becoming inter-
ested in this section and are buying or-
ange groves or winter homes.
March 21: A party consisting of
several of our Indiana guests and sev-
eral young ladies from Braidentown
left on W.R. Whitaker's electric launch
for a day's fishing and shell gathering
on Anna Maria Key on Wednesday. All
went well until late in the evening
something got wrong with the engine
and they had to stay in comfortable
quarters at Mr. and Mr. Wilbur Hall's
until help arrived.
June 6: At last, after many years
of earnest effort working towards the
establishment of an ice factory on the
Manatee River by citizens, success
has come. The Lyle Ice and Trading
Co. is now manufacturing pure crys-
tal ice from double-distilled artesian
water which is kept clean and free
from contact with the air and it is con-
gealed into the cheapest of all luxu-
ries, pure crystal ice.
The ice company is freezing a
block of pure milk. Just think of it, on
July Fourth you can buy a piece of milk
to chew. Instead of buying milk by the
pint, you can buy it by the chunk, wrap
it in a piece of paper and take it home
with you; but you must not forget and
put it in your pocket or stop off too long
on the road home.


Aug. 9: Capt. J.W. Johnstone, Mrs.
Alex McKenzie, Harry Wadham and
Rev. L.A. Spencer left Tuesday morn-
ing for a cruise from Anna Maria Key
down the coast as far as Venice. On the
return a stop will be made at Capt.
Johnstone's Perico Island place for fish-
ing and bath-
ing. The trip
is being made
in County
Clerk
Roesch' s
naphtha
launch.
Sept. 27:
Prof. R.E.' .
Cobb of Mi H e 3.
Anna Maria Miriam Hall, age 3.
key, director
of the Braidentown band, spent a few
hours in town Saturday. He has spent
the summer up North working up a
valuable invention of his, which if suc-
cessful, will make him a millionaire.
Nov. 15: In the election for Presi-
dent 660 votes were polled in Manatee
County (population 4,663) as follows:
Democrat 530: Republican 63; Prohibi-
tionists 42, Social Democrats 12, Popu-
lists 12. Republican William McKinley
(with running mate Theodore
Roosevelt) prevailed over Democrat
William Jennings Bryan in the electoral
college, 292-155.
Nov. 29: (Advertisement) You
won't have to clean smoked and greasy
lamp chimneys if you buy one of these
new gas lights. Order one as a Christ-
mas present for yourself and family. It
will lighten many of the dark corners in
your home. J.J. Scholze, Agent.
A piece of news that did not make
it into the pages of the Manatee River
Journal:
Jan. 22, 1900: Born to Mary and
Wilbur Hall of Anna Maria Island, a
girl, Miriam Woodsum Hall, delivered
by pioneer physician J.L. Leffingwell
at Fort Dade Hospital on Egmont Key.
(Only survivor of the five Hall off-
spring, Mrs. Miriam Murphy lived
most of her life on the Island. She was
a resident of Westminster Asbury

Island architect readies for Sarasota library debut


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Holmes Beach resident and noted Island archi-
tect Gene Aubry's latest creation is "one of the most
interesting buildings I've ever done."
It's almost as interesting as the grenade he
lobbed on the way out of town.
The new Selby Library in downtown Sarasota is
a culmination of years of controversy over its loca-
tion, cost, design, contents and anything else that
could be fought about in a library.
But the controversy is not over. Critics profess
unhappiness with the pillars, windows, massiveness,
design and parking.
They haven't heard anything yet: Wait until they
get a load of Aubry's newest suggestion to close
First Street to vehicles and "give the public a nice
breathing space in front of the library. Actually, the
library has already claimed it."
The main entrance is on First Street, with the
city's Five Points Park just across the way. With
Aubry's proposal that park would become an inte-
gral part of the library system.
Aubry claims it already is. So neatly does the
park fit into the library complex that "it's Library
Park now, not Five Points," he says.
The new building is nearly complete and land-
scaping has begun, as well as selection of a sculpture
to be raised at the front of the library. Both of those
prospects are as controversial as everything else



The under-construc- .
tion Selby Library in .
downtown Sarasota
is planning a grand
opening ceremony in
early August. The
$14 million building
will feature 300,000
books within 73,000 .
square feet when it
reaches capacity.

Islander Gene Aubrey surveys the library he designed in Sarasota. Islander Photos: Paul Roat


about the project, Sarasota being Sarasota.
In the face of criticism of the $14 million build-
ing, Aubry remained cheery and positive at his sum-


mer home in Maine.
"The building is what it is because Sarasota is what
it is, into arts and the freedom to do different things.
One day I told the consultant, 'We have all this sunlight
here, let's do something with it. Let it in through the
roof and filter it to the various areas' functions.'
"Every library that ever opened quadrupled pe-
destrian traffic. The one we did in Columbia, S.C.,
is 200,000 square feet (compared with the new
Selby's 73,000) and has only 13 parking places. The
city fixed up adjacent streets for parking, and library
traffic rejuvenated all the streets around it. This li-
brary will be jammed, mark my words.
"It is a really memorable building when
buildings begin to relate to people and vice versa,
that's what buildings are all about."
The new Selby. will mean a great expansion,
from 30,000 square feet to 73,000, 15,000 new vol-
umes to fill holes in the current collection of 150,000
and looking forward to a capacity of 300,000.
Shirley Amore, county libraries director, said
this building is the first step in an expansion program
that has in Sarasota County's future three new
branches and expanding three others.

Dog problems continue between neighbors


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Two Holmes Beach neighbors are again at odds
over a Great Dane.
Nicole Heslop of 314 61st St. says the "seven-foot-
tall" dog belonging to Janet Zeimis of 312 61st St. bit
her husband for the second time in a month.
"As soon as the dog sees us, it lunges over the
fence," Heslop said.
Zeimis maintains that Heslop is exaggerating the
problem in order to get a variance for a six-foot wooden
fence between their properties.
"I feel this whole thing was staged so she can get
the fence," Zeimis countered.
The current problem began last month when
Heslop said the dog lunged its head over the fence and
bit her husband Jon Westergard. She approached the
building department about installing a six-foot wooden
fence but found she needed the permission of Zeimis
to do so.
"We removed the four-foot [wooden] fence we had
and employed.Sears to build a well-made four-foot,
chain-link fence," Zeimis said. "We did not want a
wooden fence on our property line because we live in


a flood zone and the fence would interfere with the
natural flow of water to the drainage ditch on Marina
Drive."
Heslop then went to the city commission to seek a
solution. She said originally it wasn't a problem be-
cause she put up a six-foot wooden fence 12 feet back
from the property line. However, when she began in-
stalling a swimming pool, the fence had to be removed.
City commissioners advised Heslop to seek a vari-
ance or file a civil suit. Heslop said she was told last
week by the building department that she doesn't meet
the 12 criteria for a variance and she is now installing
trees and shrubs to act as a living wall.
Last week police responded to a second dog bite
call at the residence. Westergard said he was working
in the back yard and Zeimis was in her yard with the
dog.
According to Westergard's affidavit, "I informed
her that I would be working in the back yard and re-
quested her to contain the dog. The dog then charged
their four-foot fence, reaching over the fence and at-
tacked Roger Shirley, a co-worker, by biting him on his
arm.
"Janet Zeimis then came to the fence to get the dog.


Unable to control the dog, it charged the fence a sec-
ond time and attacked me, biting on my lower back.
The incident was unprovoked and happened while the
dog was under the direct supervision of the owner."
Zeimis' affidavit differed with Westergard's ac-
count.
"I saw Jon Westergard standing right by the fence,"
Zeimis said. "I asked him to get away from the fence
if he was afraid of my dog. He said, 'This is my yard
and I have work to do.'
"I said, 'Just let me get her in the house.' He re-
fused to get away from the fence. He put his arm up
over the fence as she was on the fence and she caught
the arm he had up with her paw."
EMS responded to treat Westergard and Shirley.
An animal control officer responded and advised
Zeimis that department rules require her to confine the
dog for 10 days.
Zeimis said she doesn't mind if Heslop installs a
six-foot chain-link fence but maintains that the dog is
not the problem.
"Our Great Dane is a gentle giant," Zeimis said. "She
plays with the kids behind us and my children. The worst
thing she has ever done is drool on someone."


Holmes Beach hires new treasurer


The Holmes Beach City Commission last week
concurred with Mayor Carol Whitmore's appoint-
ment of Rick Ashley as city treasurer.
Ashley served in the office of the Manatee
County Clerk of Court as an accountant for four
years, then as chief deputy clerk for 20 years.
"My past experience not only includes the
direct oversight of budgeting, accounting and fi-
nancial statement preparation, but I was also re-
sponsible for all aspects of internal control and
systems for all financial transactions related to
daily operations," Ashley said.


The clerk of the circuit court is the county's
chief financial officer and as the clerk's top assis-
tant, Ashley said he supervised employees who
provided all financial related functions for the
Manatee County government. The county has.an
annual budget of $300 million.
"I look forward to being able to use my back-
ground and my expertise," Ashley said. "I think
there's a lot of challenge in the City of Holmes
Beach for me."
Ashley will train for three weeks with outgo-
ing treasurer Ann Mitchell.


Chamber hosts

Musical auditions Sunday, June 21


Actors and actresses who sing and don't sing are
invited to an open audition for the musical "City of An-
gels" at 1 p.m. Sunday, June 21, at The Players Theatre,
838 N. Tamiami Trail, north of downtown in Sarasota.
Parts will be cast in singing roles for 10 men in the
30- to 40-year-old age range and for six women in the
20- to 40-year-old range. In non-singing roles, there
are openings for six men in the 20s to 50s and two
women, 30s to 50s.


"City of Angels" takes place in Los Angeles in the

Many of the actors may play two different roles. There
are no chorus production numbers.
Those auditioning should prepare a short, one-
minute song and supply their own sheet music. An ac-
companist will be provided. Personal scripts are avail-
able at the box office.
For more information, call the Players at 365-2494.

Two traffic islands added for adoption


Holmes Beach Mayor Carol Whitmore requested
that the two traffic islands at East Bay Drive and Mana-
tee Avenue be added to the list for adoption. Although
the city has planted the medians, it would like a resi-
dent, civic group or business to take over the mainte-
nance of the island, Whitmore said.
The adoption project is being sponsored by the
city's Parks and Beautification Advisory Board. Those
interested in adopting islands should pick up an appli-
cation form at city hall or call Chairman Sheila Hurst
at 778-0369 and indicate their top three choices of is-
lands.
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 at Gulf Drive.
8. 76th Street.
9. Gulf Drive and 58th Street.
10. Gulf Drive and 56th Street.

What's a snapshot worth? Plenty


Somewhere, in your home or apartment lurks a
snapshot that could earn you $10,000 in the 1998.
Kodak International Newspaper Snapshot Awards.
Yes, it's KINSA time again.
That snapshot could be a winner if you're an ama-
teur photographer. It may be a black-and-white or color
photo. It may be on negative or transparency film. It
must have been taken sometime since Jan. 1, 1996. It
only has to have the "special appeal" that makes it more
than a family treasure.
If you've ever heard, "You ought to enter that pic-
ture in a contest," you owe it to yourself to find out if
your snapshot has what it takes to win "best of show"
in the 63rd edition of the world's largest annual ama-
teur snapshot competition.
First you must locate it in the drawer or shoebox
where you filed it. Then, you must enter your promis-
ing picture in The Islander Bystander's summer snap-
shot contest.
The contest starts now. The first weekly winning
entry will be published July 1. It ends July 31, the fi-
nal deadline for the last of six weeks of published win-
ners. Publication dates for local winning snapshots are
July 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29 and Aug. 5.
Local prizes are awarded each week, so it's best to
enter early and often.
If your picture wins locally, it will go directly to
KINSA '98 for final judging at Eastman Kodak Com-
pany headquarters in Rochester, N. Y.
There, it will compete with snapshots taken by
amateur photographers in the U.S. and Mexico. A
panel of five international photo experts will choose a
total of 257 winning photos to share the $52,500
KINSA '98 purse. Your snapshot could be one of them.
Fifty of the top awards will go to pictures judged
best in ten subject categories including:
Abstract, Still Life, Landscape and Scenics, Candids,
Seniors, Action, New Parents, Humor, Animals, and Por-

Award and a chance to vie for bigger cash prizes and more
recognition. The top awards include $2,000, $3,000,
$5,000 and, yes, $ 10,000 for the Grand Award.
Even if your snapshot attracts the eye of just one
of the five judges, you win $50, a distinctive Certificate

prestigious venues. Winners are shown at the National

June 8, disturbance, 500 block of 68th Street. The
officer, responding in reference to a disturbance, re-
ported that the complainant said she was being ha-
rassed. A friend of the complainant at the scene said he
was there to help with the problem. According to the

during the past several weeks and she and her friend
wanted to catch the subject with her, so that he would
resign from his job.
The complainant said a previous attempt to have a
third party discover her with the subject failed when her
husband came home and interrupted the plan.
According to the report, the complainant said the sub-
ject called and said he was coming to the residence where
she was working. She said she then called the companion
and told him she would leave the door open so he could
enter undetected and catch them together. The companion
did so, and observed them together in bed.
The subject stated to the police that he had consensual
sex with the complainant and that he had resigned his job.
June 8, trespass, 5901 Marina Drive, city hall.

the detective and chief spoke to the suspect while an
officer stood by. The suspect said she came to complain
about two officers and the chief told her to file a for-


mal complaint and it would be investigated.
The suspect said she would have to consult with her
rabbi and would make an appointment with the chief. The
detective noted the-suspect seemed agitated, began quot-
ing the Bible and tried to quiz them on religion.
The city clerk said the suspect had threatened liti-
gation against the city and the mayor instructed em-
ployees to have no further contact with her. The detec-
tive issued a trespass warning to the suspect.
June 8, theft of two lounge chairs valued at $190
from the pool patio, 7000 Gulf Drive, Tiffany Place.
June 8, noise, 3805 Gulf Drive, Umbrella Beach
Resort. The complainant reported excess noise coming
from the pool area. The officer advised the subjects to
keep the noise to a minimum. The officer was later re-
called to the resort and told the subjects that the pool was
closed and if he had to return, they would receive citations.
June 9, suspicious, 2700 block of Gulf Drive. The
complainant reported the subject was looking in her
bedroom window. She said she thought the subject was
an ex-boyfriend who had been knocking on her door
and calling on the phone. She was told to call police if
he returned so a trespass warning could be issued.
June 9, found property a pair of prescription
glasses in a case. 7200 block of Gulf Drive.
June 10, found property a bicycle, 8100 block
of Gulf Drive.
June 10, alcohol, 5340 Gulf Drive, Surfside Cafe.
The officer was working with an agent of the Florida
Division of Alcohol and Tobacco who was checking
local bars. The officer said the agent sent a 16-year-old
investigator into the restaurant to purchase beer.
The investigator ordered a can of beer and the sub-
ject checked his identification, which indicated that he
was 16, and gave him a can of beer, said the report. The
officer and the agent confiscated the beer and gave the
subject a notice to appear.
June 11, burglary to an automobile, 207 Sixth St.,

Gulf's hot now, then it's not


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
Gulf of Mexico water temperatures have been on a
roller coaster in recent weeks and even months. Scientists
at Mote Marine Laboratory say the ride is caused by ed-
dies spinning off the Loop Current in the Gulf and bring-
ing upwellings of cooler water into our area.
For example, Sarasota guide Capt. Jonnie Walker
reports that the local water temperature dropped from
80 to less than 75 degrees in one day a couple week-
ends ago, and that wasn't the only time big temperature
drops like that have happened lately. We've seem sev-
,eral dramatic drops in Gulf water temperatures this
spring, only to watch them slowly go back up to nor-
mal, and then drop again.
Not only do these eddies countercurrentss) from the
Loop Current bring in cooler water, they're also respon-
sible along with our lack of rainfall for much of the
extremely cleir water we've been experiencing.
As you can guess, the Loop Current is not a simple
subject, but visualize that along the west coast of
Florida this time of the year we normally have a cur-
rent running northward.
Starting down around Charlotte Harbor the "gyre,"
or countercurrent as it's called, flows north to about
Cedar Key, then swings west to carry warm coastal
water out onto the Florida shelf offshore. The counter-
current then flows south again as part of a main current
- out along the edge of the shelf swinging back in
toward land, to begin the cycle again down at about
Charlotte Harbor.
Eddies off that large offshore southbound current
sweeping inshore through our gyre are what are show-
ing up locally. For a much fuller explanation of the
Loop Current, check out Robert H. Gore's "The Gulf
of Mexico,".published by Sarasota's Pineapple Press.
Lastly, folks at the University of South Florida and
Mote are studying the possibility that these upwellings

Eat the short kings
Mississippi health officials have joined neighbors
in Florida and other Gulf coast states in warning an-
glers about the dangers of eating king mackerel. This
is a good time to remind folks of it again, and the rec-
ommendation is simple:
Don't eat any king mackerel caught in the Gulf of
Mexico longer than 39 inches.
The reason is also simple:
Fish that size have elevated levels of mercury.
Groups outside government, such as the Natural
Resources Defense Council, have suggested only eat-
ing kings 33-39 inches once a week for adults and once
a month for children and women of child-bearing age.
Kings less than 33 inches are considered safe for un-
limited consumption by groups both inside and outside
government.
For more information on other fish considered best
not to eat more than once a week for the same reason
- including Spanish mackerel, gaff-topsail catfish
from Tampa Bay and spotted sea trout from Charlotte
Harbor contact the Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection's Education and Information office
in St. Petersburg at 813-896-8626.
The DEP website can be found at www.
dep.state.fl.us.

And drink the, ahhh, water
A month or two back I told about the Tampa area's
plans to investigate building big reverse osmosis plants
for drinking water along the shores of Tampa Bay. This
week a group of eight scientists, mostly from the Uni-
versity of South Florida, have announced they approve
of a plan to recycle Tampa sewage back into the city's
drinking water system.
The program will take highly treated wastewater
(as it's called) and dump it into the Tampa Bypass
Canal where it mixes with about two billion gallons of
river water. A few miles downstream, canal water will

"Yuck," you say? Well think about this, friends
and neighbors. Virtually every city along the, say,
Mississippi River, got its drinking water and dumped
its sewage into that river for decades, maybe centuries.
I remember a friend in New Orleans telling me once
that when she drank a glass of tap water, it was the
seventh or eighth time it had probably been used in its
trip south from "Minnesnowda."
Frankly, I'd rather just not think about it. If it's
safe, fine. But I don't want to think about it. In fact, I'll
never mention it again, I promise.
But it does seem like you ought to know, especially
if you're planning a trip to Tampa. Not to mention New
Orleans.

Waterway closing
Boaters contemplating a trip to the east coast
through the Okeechobee Waterway should be aware
the short cut will be closed for much of the summer.
The locks near La Belle will be under repair from July
6 through September 27.
For additional information, just call (941) 983-
8101.

Wanna forget that boat?
Speaking of boating, if you have a boat you're
thinking of selling, consider donating it to the Sarasota
Youth Sailing Program. Your donation will help pro-
vide the program with needed funding and you with a
nice tax deduction.
The program accepts all kinds of boats, both sail
and power.
Over the years I've watched the Youth Sailing Pro-
gram at the Sarasota Sailing Squadron teach hundreds of
kids how to sail, and all sorts of other good things like
personal responsibility, self-reliance and sportsmanship
that go with it. It's a dandy program, and frankly, it's a
shame we don't have one like it on the Island.
In the meantime, if you're interested in helping out
the YSP, give Paul Larson a call at 355-4435.
See you next week.

If it swims, you can probably catch it now


By Capt. Mike Heistand
Just about anything with scales seems to be hungry
this week. Excellent catches of up to 100-pound tarpon
have been reported off the beaches. Farther in the Gulf,
look for permit or Spanish mackerel. In the backwaters,
redfish, trout and catch-and-release snook are the best
bets. There are even a few barracuda in the bays.
Fishers at the Rod and Reel Pier report mackerel,
a few redfish and some catch-and-release snook are
their best bets.
Anglers at the Anna Maria City Pier are reeling
in snook that is released, shark, sting rays, cobia, tuna
and mackerel.
Annie's Bait & Tackle said that Capt. Zack on the
Dee Jay II said bay fishing is producing redfish to 32
inches and trout to 26 inches. He's also bringing in
some bluefish and small barracuda. In the Gulf, he's
catching tarpon up to 100 pounds, huge Spanish mack-
erel to 28 inches long and last Friday caught two floun-
der, one 22 inches long.
Capt. Thom Smith at Angler's Repair said he's
hooking up with a few tarpon and lots of reds and
catch-and-release snook.
Carl at Perico Harbor Bait & Tackle said a lot of
people are catching a lot of catch-and-release snook,
fair action on redfish using hard-to-find shrimp.
Capt. Rick Gross said he's seen tarpon all week,
with the best action on silver kings taking place in the
morning. He's also getting into permit in the Gulf's
artificial reef systems.
On my boat Magic we're fishing for tarpon in the
mornings, redfish and trout in the afternoons with reds
up to 28 inches and trout to 24 inches.
Capt. Tom Chaya said he's bringing back lots of
permit off the artificial reefs in the Gulf, most in the 12-
pound range.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said fishing is ex-
cellent right now, with almost everything that swims
taking the bait. Don't forget the Fishing the Islands
tournament this weekend to benefit the Anna Maria
Island Community Center.
Capt. Mike Greig said he's been targeting tarpon

World Cup under way
Soccer aficionados are in hog heaven as first-
round World Cup matches are being played almost
every day until teams have played each team in their
group. The top two records in each of the six groups
advancing to the elimination round.
The only problem is that interest here in the U.S.
is so limited that the ABC network, reacting to a
flood of calls complaining about General Hospital
not being shown due the the U.S. game had mes-
sages going across the bottom of the TV screen let-
ting people know that the popular soap opera would
be on at 8 p.m.

Other countries pretty much shut down all opera-
tions when their national team is playing but here we
get upset because our soaps aren't on for one day.
Over in England, there is actually an 800 number for
wives to call so they can deal with the loss of their
husbands for a month.
U.S. officials had hoped that after hosting'the
event in 1994 and having had a professional league
in place that interest would be stronger but atten-
dance has lagged at MLS games all over the coun-
try despite more kids playing soccer than ever be-
fore. A good showing by our team would help but
the boys received an unlucky draw and will have to
play their best to have any hope of advancing.
Team USA chances grew longer after losing to
perennial cup favorite, Germany, by a score of 2-0
in a game that was essentially over when Andreas
Moller headed the ball between defender Mike
Burns and the post for an early 1-0 lead.
Given a lead, the Germans were content to keep
possession of the ball by knocking it around their
back line and through the midfield with occasional

forays forward. This left the U.S. team chasing the
ball and with few scoring opportunities besides
Tampa Bay Mutiny team member Frankie Hejduk's
header off of a corner kick that German goalie
Andreas Koepke made a diving save on to preserve
the shutout.
Next up for team USA is a match that should
draw some interest as we take on Iran at 3p.m. on
Sunday. The Iranians are really looking forward to
playing the "Satans" from the west. On paper, the
U.S. should roll over Iran but they looked good
against number eight ranked Yugoslavia earlier in
the week so the U.S. has got their work cut out for
them.
The IFC is holding adult practices on Wednes-
days at G.T. Bray park in Bradenton. They are get-
ting ready to play in the Manasota Soccer League's
summer season which begins play on June 28th.
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. till dark. For more informa-
tion or to report sports news, call me at 778-3153.
