No election for Anna Maria Fire Commission


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Anna Maria Fire Control District voters won't have
an election this year because incumbent commissioners
Chuck Stearns and John Roberts have no challengers.
Both Stearns and Roberts were appointed earlier in
the year to replace Sandy Haas-Martens and Marty
Duytschaver. Haas-Martens resigned and ran success-
fully for a seat on the Holmes Beach City Commission



Forum planned


on youth


offender issue
By Paul Roat
Youth curfew or not?
A change in state law?
Or maybe a community forum on youth problems?
Those are questions Island officials are weighing
in the wake of last month's rash of vandalism in Anna
Maria and Holmes Beach. The matter came up during
last week's Barrier Island Elected Official's meeting,
an informal meeting of mayors and commissioners
from Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key.
Anna Maria Mayor Chuck Shumard is the lead
advocate of an Island nighttime curfew for anyone 15

or younger.
"We're having a
serious problem with
young people," Shu-
mard said, "and I
think a curfew would
be in order. It will get
them off the streets
and I feel it has to be
for the whole Island.
This has gotten quite
serious."
Shumard is sug-
gesting a curfew of 10
for non-school evenings.


Shumard's proposal didn't sit well with Holmes
Beach Mayor Carol Whitmore.
"I don't support it at all," she said. "What about
tourist kids? A curfew won't solve anything the
problem is with the kids and their parents."
Holmes Beach Commissioner Don Maloney con-
curred with Whitmore.
"The problem is with the parents, not with the
state," Maloney said.
It's "the state" that took the brunt of most Island
officials' ire. Florida law calls for juvenile offenders to
accrue points through a category of offenses before any
more serious legal action is taken. The process is simi-
lar to what motorists face with driving infractions -
where each ticket carries a number of points with it, and

youthful curfew

A discussion about the possibility of a youth
curfew ordinance took place last week at an
Anna Maria City Commission work session.
The discussion was spurred by a gang of
mostly juveniles who call themselves the "Island
Thugs." They have been in trouble with the law

However, in Anna Maria's sister district. West

election and there are challengers in every race.

Anna Maria post office may get a facelift


By Susan K. Kesselring
Islander Reporter
Yes, those orange, bendy, knock down things in
front of the post office in Anna Maria have a name.
They are called traffic delineators and are in place to
keep the traffic away from the entrance to the post
office.
At last weeks Anna Maria City Commission work
session, a suggestion was made by Mayor Chuck
Shumard to erect something more permanent than the
traffic delineators because it appears people are knock-
ing them down at a cost to the city of $60 each.
The "something more permanent" could be a four
to six inch high by 18 inch wide concrete circular with
a place in the center for plants. The idea was originally
offered by former building official Frank Tyndall.
Schumard said that if a change is going to be made,
then it will be done after Gulf Drive is resurfaced.

delineators may be

Anna Maria continues pursuit of youthful curfew


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1


entering, suspected theft and sleeping in cars. The idea
for an Island curfew came about because many of the
problems and complaints have occurred late at night.
A curfew would give the police authority to get
certain troublesome youths off the streets. Presently,
the only recourse police have is to wait until a juvenile
commits a crime and then arrest him or her. The juve-
nile is issued points and released to his or her parents.
Each crime carries varied levels of points. When twelve
points are accumulated, the youth is sent to a juvenile
detention center.
Mayor Chuck Shumard expressed his view on the
point system that is in place forjuveniles, and said that
for certain Island youth, the point system is not a de-
terrent. "I've heard youngsters bragging about how
many points they have," resident Diane Cuniff said.


Resident George Rutlev said he thought the situa-
tion with the "Island Thugs" had already been taken
care of.
Manatee County Sheriff's Deputy Gary Sellito said
that certain individuals have been dealt with, though
that is not going to solve the problem. "It's a continu-
ing thing. They know we can't do anything about them
hanging around on the streets."
Sellito said a curfew would give the police a foot-
hold in dealing with this situation, as well as encour-
aging parents to cooperate.
Commissioner Robert McElheny made mention of
a 1997 curfew ordinance in Pinellas Park which he
feels is a model ordinance because it deals with the is-
sue of parental involvement, what McElheny says is the
Shiee_'i, problem."
He said, "The children are not the problem, the
parents are the problem, and there are remedies in this


curfew that deals with the parents ... and I think if we
are going to in fact do a curfew, and again I'm not say-
ing that we are, I think that really needs to be thought
about, that the real cause of the problem needs to be
addressed also."
The Pinellas Park curfew ordinance deals with the
responsibility of parents as well as the penalties im-
posed on parents. Under this ordinance, if a juvenile
violates the section, the parent will receive a written
warning for the first violation. A parent who is con-
victed for a second offense may be made to pay a fine
of $500, or be imprisoned for six months, or both.
Details such as what time the curfew would be in ef-
fect were broached by the mayor, who said that they were
thinking about 10 p.m. on weekdays during the school
year and 11 p.m. on weekends, or when school is out.
Shumard said the ordinance could not be effective
unless it is supported by all three cities on Anna Maria.

Holmes Beach wants budget work session


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach City Commissioners got their first
crack at the mayor's proposed 1998-99 budget last week
and asked for a work session to go over it line by line.
The budget shows no increase in the milage rate of
2.25 and a decrease in total expenditures and reserves
from $5,993.268 to $4,783,417.
Estimated revenues are down from $3,680,446 in
1887-98 to $2,491,530 due to a decrease in estimated ciga-
rette, sales and gas taxes. However, operational expenses


are up $30,619 from $2,251,425 to $2,282,044.
The reserve fund has been increased from
$ 1,000,000 to $1,200,000 and the contingency fund has
been increased from $30,000 to $34,000.
Three of the four city departments show an in-
crease in operational expenses. General government is
up from $409.185 to $428,136, public works is up from
$755,403 to $772,240 and the police department is
down from $1,056,837 to $1,047,668.
Mayor Carol Whitmore said she increased the
beautification line item from $13,500 to $65,000 in


order to improve the rights of way, city field and city
properties such as the 63rd Street boat ramp area.
Contributions are up $4,000 to $38,000. The larg-
est addition is $7,000 to the Anna Maria Elementary
School to purchase computer stations for its World of
Work program. This is a joint project between the
school and the Anna Maria Island Chamber of Com-
merce to provide computer stations for fifth graders as
well as Island adults.
The Anna Maria Island Community Center re-
mains at $22,000 with $1,000 earmarked for its en-
dowment trust. Mote Marine, the Friends of the Island
Library and the Anna Maria Island Historical Society
were cut from $1,000 to $500 each.
The Red Tide START fund and the Sarasota Bay
National Estuary Program remain at $5,000 and $1,000,

respectively. Keep Manatee Beautiful and Island Players,
at $1,000 each, were dropped and a $500 donation to the
Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce.

Commissioners raise questions
Commissioner Luke Courtney asked about a pro-
posed decrease in legal fees from $52,000 to $45,000.
The city exceeded its budgeted legal fees this year
because "of the previous administration," Whitmore
replied. "A lot of things we approved were legal mat-
ters and the attorney had to be involved."
She said city employees were permitted to call the
city attorney without prior approval by the administra-
tion, which increased the legal fees considerably, but
she has ended that practice.
Commissioner Roger Lutz asked why the police
budget was decreased by $10,000.
Whitmore said the department was slated to re-
place a patrol vehicle this year but agreed to put off the
purchase for a year.
"Is it cost effective?" Lutz asked.
"We'll keep track of maintenance and find out,"
Whitmore said.
Lutz asked how the city's donation to the Center
compared to last year.
Whitmore explained that it is the same because
"they'll probably get this building (use of the present city
hall). My rationale is because Anna Maria Elementary
never got any money from the school tax over the last five
years. They asked for $7,000 from each Island city to start
a computer lab, so I took it from the Center's request."
"It seems weird for one governmental entity to tax
people and give it to another governmental entity,"
Lutz noted.
Representatives of the elementary school's Par-
ent Teacher Organization asked commissioners to
support their efforts to replace the school's play-
ground equipment. Commission Chairman Don
Maloney advised them to make their request to the
Coalition of Barrier Island Elected Officials.
The budget work session was set for 9 a.m. Aug. 4.


By Susan K. Kesselring
Islander Reporter
If the City of Anna Maria passes the ordinance to
become an electric-car community, then "all that
means" according to Mayor Chuck Shumard at last
weeks Anna Maria City's Commissioners work ses-
sion, "is electric cars could be sold and operated in the
city." He doesn't see a problem with that, because the
cars only go 25 mph, the same as the posted speed lim-
its in Anna Maria.
Shumard, who has been driving an electric car
donated for city use, said, "They are a great vehicle.
They are ideal for Island living, non-pollutant, and
quiet."
Under Florida law, there is no distinction for elec-


tric cars. There is, however, a separate ordinance that
deals with golf carts.
According to the law firm of Harrison,
Hendrickson, Douglas & Kirkland, P.A., in a document
sent to the mayor, "Electric vehicles are defined by
state law as simply a motor vehicle powered by an elec-
tric motor. There is no special treatment of electric
vehicles under the state vehicle codes. That is, electric
vehicles must meet all the safety requirements as does
any other motor vehicle under state law."
Mayor Shumard said if an ordinance was passed,
Anna Maria would be the first city in Florida to pass
such an ordinance. The electric car ordinance has
been passed on a federal and state level, but not on
the city level.

Auxiliary presents plan for boat ramp area


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Coast Guard Auxiliary officials were told last week
to talk to Holmes Beach building officials about their
plans for a headquarters at the 63rd Street boat ramp.
Raymond Paysour, vice commander of Flotilla 81,
brought city commissioners an artist's rendering and
sketches of a proposed headquarters using two school
portables. The group will lose its present headquarters
in November and is searching for a new location to
hold its classes and meetings, he said.
"We went over there and took a look at the boat
ramp area and the two portables will fit," Paysour
said. "We would very much like this area. We feel
like we could be a tremendous asset to the city with
our presence.
"What about parking," Commissioner Sandy Haas-
Martens asked. "I live there and people are lucky to get
their boats and trailers there. When that ramp was put
in we got smaller boats and now we get 28-foot boats
on trailers and big utility vehicles."
Haas-Martens said when the spaces near the
ramp are filled, boaters park trailers all around the
tennis courts and in a vacant lot on 62nd Street.
Mayor Carol Whitmore said boaters can also park
near the bathrooms.
Paysour said in the daytime, the boats and trailers
could park in front of the proposed building. At night
when classes are held, the parking area would be used
by instructors and students. He said there are about 90
members and about 25 to 50 of them attend meetings
held on the first and third Mondays every month. About
30 people attend public education classes.
Haas-Martens said many boaters also come in at
night. She asked if there might be a better location for
the buildings in another area of the city.
Fred Haul, who did an artist's rendering of the pro-
posed site, said it does not encroach on the existing
parking.
Commission Chairman Don Maloney said he
wants to view the area before making a decision.
Commissioner Luke Courtney said the next step is


for a Coast Guard Auxiliary representative to speak to
the city's building officials about parking problems and
other city-owned areas that might be available for the
building.
Maloney told them to bring the information to the
Aug. 25 work session.
Flotilla 81 is the oldest and largest in Florida and
receives no funding from federal or local governments,
said Commnader Shirley Northrop. It is are prohibited
from fund raising and its sole source of income is from
selling texts for its public education classes.


Members offer classes in water safety for power
and sail boats and boating skills and seamanship. In
addition, they provide weekly patrols to assist recre-
ational boaters and offer marine equipment examina-
tions at local boat ramps.
Members assist the Coast Guard on search and res-
cue calls, conduct post-storm checks on channel mark-
ers, update navigational charts, assist local and state
governments with environmental needs and update
marine dealers on changes in boating requirements and
laws.

What's the problem?
Island thugs? Island parents?
Is there a gross over-reaction to reports of juvenile
vandalism?
The issue was brought to the foreground by a citizen
in Anna Maria who asked for help following a break-in,
then criticized the city and it's patrol officers for not re-
porting crime to the newspaper. Now, we're awash in in-
quiries at the newspaper about the severity of the problem.
Is the Longboat Key mayor overly solicitous in his
concern that crime will be displaced from Anna Maria
to Longboat Key if the northern city enacts a curfew?
Is Holmes Beach Commissioner Luke Courtney over
dramatizing the "gang problem" on television news?
These reactions, and other media's reactions to the
flurry of hyperbole, are quickly approaching paranoia.
Generation after generation has problems with its
youth. Remember the 1960s and the fear that swelled
across the country over what to do about juvenile de-
linquents?
The only thing new then was the fact they gave it
a name: JDs ... juvenile delinquents.
Our kids go through periods where they knock over
mailboxes, pool hop up and down the beach from re-
sort to resort, ride friends bikes off and ditch them and
myriad other pranks.
Most kids get over it a few progress to real prob-
lems. And it's got nothing to do with good home, bad
home. While having an understanding family can help
kids move beyond rebellion, it's no guarantee.
The "crime du jour" appears to be breaking into va-
cant vacation homes and enjoying the amenities so,
please be on the lookout for anything out of the ordinary
in your neighborhood. The police are at a disadvantage
due to juvenile cunning no lights on in the homes, no
car in the driveway, and often only a bicycle in the bushes.
So, we now stand on notice to lock doors and se-
cure our property. Parents know to keep kids without
planned, supervised activities at home.
And we all need to look out for one another. One:
problem with these kids is that they don't want to go
home. They're apparently happy to live a carefree,
beach-bum lifestyle at our expense.
Has the gang gotten too much recognition and pub-
licity? Sure. But we felt you needed to know there was.
a problem.
It's not at the level of inner-city gang problems. It's
not nearly that severe. And yet the parents of good kids are
scared. We haven't heard from the parents of the trouble
makers. And it's likely they haven't heard from their kids.
We just have to expect our police forces to do their
job and be dilligent.
Good heavens, with all this hype, you'd think it
was an election year.
Oh yeah, it is.

Iye YU :] O I


Public participation needed
I wish to correct a major inaccuracy in your
Bradenton Beach marina article in the July 8 issue.
You stated, "The city commission has agreed to enter
into a legal contract with Bazzy once the tax question
is resolved."
That was not the case, as I and several others who
attended the June 18 meeting are concerned. Nor is that
statement supported by the transcript of the meeting
furnished to me by the city clerk's office.
The motion that was voted on as expressed by the
mayor was: "All that are in favor in pursuing a contract
with conditions please indicate ...
There was no agreement to enter into a contract,
but only to draft conditions to be discussed at a later
meeting. Commissioner Gail Cole put the motion on
the floor originally for the city attorney to draw up an
agreement that would protect the city. Both Cole and
then-Commissioner Dan Goodchild expressed their
wishes that the citizens of Bradenton Beach review the
draft agreement.
What the citizens of our community should expect
to see is a draft document of terms and conditions that
constitute an offer of sale to the city from marina-
owner Allan Bazzy.
The commission should weigh the offer along with all
the tax, loan and business aspects. The public must take
part of each and every aspect of this process. The commis-
sion would then vote yes or no for any reason they choose.
Beware any attempt to lock the commission into
automatically voting "yes"just because the terms of the
draft agreement are met. The city attorney must protect
the commissioners by presenting a document which
clearly empowers them to vote any way they choose for
whatever reason.
This is a situation which requires careful study and
Bradenton Beach cannot be pushed to a quick decision
regardless of how many people are lined up waiting to
buy the marina from Mr. Bazzy.
Harry Brown amnd Susan Kelme, M.D.,
Bradenton Beach
* Editor's note: As reported on ,lJne 24, the city com-
missioln "agreed to enter into a legal contract with
marina owner Allan BaIIV once ilhe agreenlict is


drawn up, based on a number f stipulations, and will
vote on the matter at a July 2 meeting. This was
agreed at the meeting of June 18. The vote has been
delayed pending finalization of that written agreement.

Statistics not provided
After reading about the Island gang problem, it
occurs to me that no statistics had been provided for
the citizens of Anna Maria Island to weigh the sever-
ity of this problem.
Please provide us with the number of incidents
which have taken place on the Island in each city re-
lated to this gang. Also, compare these problems to the
problems in Bradenton. How many incidents of vandal-
ism have been committed? How many rapes, murders,
break-ins and drive-by shootings have happened?
Have all these violations been committed by Island
juveniles? What have the legal ramifications for these
perpetrators been? Are they in juvenile detention centers?
Before the cities establish curfews, let the citizens
and voters be informed of the statistics related to the
gang problems. Allow us, as a group of residents, to
make informed suggestions and participate in the de-
cisions related to this problem.
And while 1 do read the weekly police reports, it
does not answer all the questions necessary for in-
formed decision making.
Kathy Granstad, Anna Maria


Thanks to fire department
I want to send a very heart-felt thank you to the
Anna Maria Island Fire Department for the speedy res-
cue of one of my six-week-old kittens. I thank you, as
well as both of my daughters thank you.

THOSE WERE TiHE AYS
Part 8, Turn-of-the-Century Anna Maria
by June Alder


Island old-timer Andrew Gowanlock (right), shown with his companion Asa
Goddard, lived to be 107.


ISLAND SINGLES


"First families" the Beans,
Cobbs and Joneses take the spotlight
in remembrances of things past in this
column and during Anna Maria Island
"heritage" celebrations. But also de-
serving notice are the single men -
bachelors, widowers, divorces and per-
haps a few escapees from the bonds of
matrimony who figured in the early
history of our island.
According to Captain John R.
Jones (who lived here from 1895 until
his death in 1933), a number of adven-
turers staked claims in the 1880s before
the island was opened to settlement by
the U.S. government.
The first "pre-emptor," attorney
Jones wrote in 1927, was a young fel-
low from Connecticut, George Colman.
It so happened that in 1884 he arrived
in Tampa on the same steamer as the
Bean family. Likely it was George
Bean who acquainted Colman with
Anna Maria; Colman fell in love with
Bean's eldest daughter, Lula, and mar-
ried her in 1886. The couple may have
intended to set up housekeeping on the
island. But after Lula's mother died
they moved away.
Next came Jones's friend, Tampa
City Clerk Lamont Bailey (both sur-
vived the 1887 yellow fever epidemic
that killed George Bean's wife). Bailey
"proved up" but afterwards sold out to
Tampa Judge John White, also a friend
of Jones's.
For several years after that, Jones
said, "the Key was practically aban-
doned, except as a resort for hunters
and campers."
A little while after the Beans,
Cobbs and Joneses arrived (1893-
1895), a peculiar fellow from Alabama
settled near where the Anna Maria City
Pier is today. William "Buddy" Berg
was a chemist and inventor who had a
house with a steeple where he slept,
climbing up each night through a trap-
door. Down below in his laboratory he
carried out mysterious experiments. He
extracted a waterproof glue from the
palmetto leaf. And from the palmetto
he also concocted a varnish that was ap-
parently proof against everything -
except explosions, which were fre-
quent.
Then there was Judge Nelson
Cunningham, an Englishman, to the
south of Berg. Cunningham wasn't re-
ally a judge, he was a railroad conduc-


tor. But at one time he had been ap-
pointed a justice of the peace to watch
out for Chinese trying to slip into the
United States by way of Tampa Bay.
(There was quite a bit of illegal entry
from Asia in those days.)
Cunningham was fond of children.
The Island youngsters often stopped at
his house because he liked to give them
treats. Miriam Hall Murphy recalled
that Cunningham :sometimes used to
imbibe too much moonshine, usually
when his brother Cyrus came to visit.
But the Hall kids didn't mind. The judge
was more liberal with his treats then.
"Professor" H.T. Watson, also from
England, operated a good-sized farm
where he raised figs, grapefruit and ba-
nanas for the Tampa market. Watson's
home was on the Gulf about where the
Bali Hai Motel is today. An educated
man who had taught the violin in
Tampa, he lived to be almost 100 years
old.
A Scotsman named Andrew
Gowanlock had a tiny shack on a little
plot of ground near Sam Cobb's home-
stead at mid-Island. Eventually he built
himself a two-story clapboard house
and ran a farm and chicken ranch about
where the Union Bank is today. He out-
did Watson, dying in 1911 at the age of
107.
Down along Longboat Pass there
lived a retired pharmacist, D.J. Rausch.
Known as the "island doctor," he dis-
pensing remedies when children took
sick and gave folks emergency medical
treatment. During the influenza epi-
demic that swept Tampa Bay after
World War I he worked tirelessly nurs-
ing people back to health and was cred-
ited with saving many lives.
One other single settler was a "one-
armed veteran of the Spanish- American
War named Wright," mentioned by
Anna Maria Cobb Riles in her memoirs.
Here's a trivia item noted by Anna
Maria Cobb though not by Captain
Jones. There was one single woman
homesteader, a "Mrs. Turner." She
stuck it out alone for nearly five years,
occasionally visited by her grown sons.
But after the Spanish-American War
she sold out to Sam Cobb's brother
Rurick and was never heard from again.

Port Manatee plans major expansion


By Paul Roat
A $20 million improvement plan to expand berths and-
extend channels has been proposed for Port Manatee.
The port, one of 14 in the state, hopes to get 50
percent matching funds from the state for the improve-
ments. Port Manatee is located in northern Manatee
County, and ships entering and leaving the port are
clearly seen from Anna Maria Island.
Port officials discussed plans with members of the
Barrier Island Elected Officials Forum last week.
Port Manatee Executive Director David McDonald
said the expansion effort would be about 2,500 feet
long, focused in two berths.
"Del Monte and Tropicana have been pushing for
more berth space," McDonald said. He added that cruise
ship lines are also interested in Port Manatee as a embar-
kation and debarkation site for an expansion of cruise
routes in the western Caribbean and Panama Canal area.
Most shoreside expansion will be to the south of the
current port facilities on a 400-acre tract of land the port
purchased several years ago. Much of the tract is judged
to be environmentally sensitive wetlands, but about 100
acres are uplands and could be used for cargo container
storage, parking and other uses, McDonald said.
Dredging and filling of the bottom of Tampa Bay
would cover more than 76 acres, including about 15
acres of seagrass beds, a half-acre of mangroves and
tidal marsh and 26 acres of shallow, unvegetated bay
bottom with scattered colonies of soft corals.
The remainder of the bay bottom impacts are to
unvegetated parts of the bay in water greater than six
feet in depth.
Permits to do the dredging are pending before the
Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
Steve Tyndal, the port's director of special
projects, said dredged material would be placed on a
spoil island near the port entrance channel. Exotic veg-
etation on the island would be removed, and the result-
ing island could become a nesting site for gulls and
terns, he said.
A lagoonal system would be developed at the south
end of the spoil island to enhance the growth of man-

groves, he added.
Tyndal said port officials have devised a mitiga-
tion plan to offset the seagrass bed loss due to the
creation of the channels. The existing seagrasses
would be transplanted to two nearby areas that cur-
rently are barren of the marine growth. More than
two acres of mangroves will he planted for every acre
disturbed through the dredging, he said.

Commission makes annual Hagen grant request


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Instead of making a specific request to the Rex
Hagen Family Foundation this year, Holmes Beach
Mayor Carol Whitmore sent a list of projects necessary
to complete the city's new recreation area.
Whitmore said the city is seeking any amount the
foundation can provide to complete these projects.
The list of projects presented by city commission-
ers includes:


Grand opening of
Island office center
Island resident Barbara Szabo has opened
Barb's Office Center at 310 Pine Ave., Anna
Maria. The store offers professional typing,
worldwide fax services, business cards, lamina-
tion, quality prints and office supplies.
Szabo made the decision to open her busi-
ness after speaking with many Island residents
and vacationers who had to travel off the Island
for these services. Previously, she worked for
Mail Boxes Etc. for three years.
The phone number is 778-5357.


PORT, FROM PAGE 8
low water is a leading cause of seagrass mortality, he
added.
A bulkhead is planned north of the spoil island to
the port entrance channel to reduce wave action and
promote seagrass bed colonization.
Port officials also plan to dredge a silted creek
through the 400-acre tract south of the port to enhance
flushing and encourage plant growth.
Overall, Tyndall said, almost six acres of new habi-
tat will be created for every acre disturbed.
The port expansion plans have drawn the ire of at
least one environmental group, ManaSota-88. The
group's president, Gloria Rains, has called the expan-
sion "one of the largest attacks on this valuable
seagrass resource in over 20 years."
Manatee County Commission Lari Ann Harris,
who also heads the port authority, said, "I personally
assure you of our reputation to maintain and promote
mitigation and water quality at the port."


Repairing the sewer system and replacing electric
wiring in the public bathrooms serving the recreation
area $6,000. The foundation has already granted
$4,289 to the bathroom project but the total cost is es-
timated to be $10,000 to $11,000.
Landscaping the baseball and soccer fields -
$5,000 to $10,000.
Upgrading the old city hall to meet the require-
ments of the Americans With Disabilities Act and
repairing the air conditioning system, roof and walls


Here's something different: Bradenton Beach
has made government easier to understand.
Or at least hear.
A new sound system has been installed in the
commission chambers in city hall that dramatically
improved the audio quality of the proceedings. New
microphones, a powerful amplifier and sophisticated
sound equalizer with new cables and other goodies
were approved by the city commission last month and


- $53,000.
"We believe the building will make a perfect gath-
ering place for our growing teenage youth population
as well as for other citizen groups who would welcome
such an opportunity," Whitmore said.
In the past the city has received foundation grant
funds for city field projects such as an irrigation sys-
tem, rest room renovations, soccer facilities and a
basketball court (planned for the site of the current
police station).


installed in time for last week's meeting.
Cost of the new sound system was $4,280.
And how well does it work? Mayor Connie
Drescher summed it up by saying that the new
gooseneck microphones are so powerful that
people chatting in the back of the chambers will be
picked up on the audio tape of the proceedings.
Be careful what you mutter in Bradenton
Beach these days.

Island Baseball

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

All-stars open some eyes
Each year when the sub-district Little League play-
offs roll around, teams from Bradenton typically wait
for the draw, hoping to get an opening game against the
Anna Maria Island All-stars.
You really couldn't blame the ownersr" though,
as the Island teams have not fared well in these play-
offs. Most years our all-stars have played two games,
then went home out of the tournament.
Don't get me wrong. I've always thought that the
Island has a lot of good athletes that can compete
against kids from the mainland. I base this on the fact
that our kids have traditionally competed very well on
the soccer field, but it just hasn't worked out that way
in baseball.
That is until this year. Anna Maria Island resi-
dents should all be extremely proud of our two all-
star teams especially the 11- 12-year-old team.
They finished two games from the finals thanks to
the hard work of manager Joe Roberts, coaches Bob
Gibbons and Gary Krauss and most importantly, all
the kids on the teams.
After losing its first game, Anna Maria Island won
three games in a row to finish in fourth place out of 10
teams.
When asked what contributed to this team's suc-
cess, Manager Roberts said, "These kids worked ex-
tremely hard and surprised a lot of people. Every win
was a total team effort and it proves that the Island can
compete."
Roberts added his thanks to all the fans who came
out to support them and said he hopes this is a start to
keeping the kids playing when the new field is built in
Holmes Beach.
We echo Roberts' sentiments while also hoping

that this year's success will entice Island parents to
schedule vacations and such around the playoffs. Ev-
ery year several good ball players don't participate
because of vacation plans.
My feeling is that you only get a couple of chances
in life to compete in an event such as the Little League
World Series. Disney World will always be an option
later on down the road.
We can compete year in and year out if everyone
works hard and makes this tournament a priority.
Player Brandon Roberts put it best when he said,
" Watch out for us next year!"
Again, congratulations to all the players, coaches
and parents of this year's all-star teams.
Following are individual game accounts from the
tournament.

ter pitcher.
Anna Maria faced Anderson, who performed as
advertised, striking out the first six Anna Maria bat-
ters he faced. Bobby Gibbons broke the consecutive
strike'-out streak when he led off the top of the third
with a walk.
Peter Dowling was the first to actually put the ball
into play with a pop fly to the right fielder, former Is-
land resident Billy-Bob Goldschmidt, for the first out
of the inning. Dowling was followed by Taylor Man-
ning, who popped out to Michael Ide at second base,
before Tyler Krauss lined a clean single to right-field
for the first hit of the game off of Anderson. Brandon
Roberts then struck out for the final out of the inning.
Fortunately for the Island team, Bobby Cooper
was almost as impressive on the mound as he allowed
only one run in the first two innings on a walk to
Danny Murphy and an RBI single by Adam Mott to
keep the locals in the game.
Cooper got off to a good start in the bottom of the
third by striking out Jared Berry and getting two
strikes on Murphy before he singled to right field. A

walk to Ryan Talbert brought up Mott, who responded
with a prodigious blast that easily cleared the center-
field fence for a 4-0 lead.
Cooper retired Anderson on a ground out to second
baseman Bobby Gibbons for the second out before the
wheels fell off for the Islanders. Consecutive errors by
the usually sure-handed Manning at shortstop put run-
ners on first and third. With Justin Barr at bat, Ide broke
for second, hoping to draw the throw from Island
catcher Hunter Green.
Green, acting on his coach's advice, faked the
throw to second and gunned it to Mario Torres at third
and caught Drake Dumas off third. Dumas took off for
home and scored when Torres's throw went into the
dirt. A single by Barr, two walks and another error
pretty much ended the game as the Island all-stars now
trailed 7-0.
Manatee Central won the game in the bottom of the
fourth when they capitalized on two free passes to first,
an RBI single by Ide and a two-run homer by Barr to
win on the 10-run mercy rule.
They lost 11-0 but coach Roberts pointed out that
they could play with them. "They were starting to mea-
sure Anderson's fastball and if they hadn't given away
runs on errors, they would still be in the game," he said.
His words would prove prophetic as Anna Maria
would surprise many fans out at Norma Lloyd Park in
the coming days of the tournament.

Anna Maria 4,
13th Ave. Community Center 0
Anna Maria rode the complete-game pitching of
11-year old Taylor Manning to record the shut-out win
over 13th Avenue Community Center.
Manning allowed one hit while striking out six bat-
ters. Leading the way at the plate were Tyler Krauss.
Brandon Roberts and Bobby Cooper with singles.
while Hunter Green added a triple.

Anna Maria 8,
Manatee National 7
Anna Maria jumped on Manatee National
pitcher Cory Heflin for five first-inning runs, then


held on for an 8-7 Little League tournament win
thanks in part to stellar defensive play by catcher
Mario Torres in the bottom of the sixth inning.
Tyler Krauss got things going when he led off
the game by reaching first base on an error by Mana-
tee National second baseman Sean "Dagger"
D'Agostino.
After Krauss moved to second on a passed ball,
Brandon Roberts plated him with an RBI double for
a 1-0 lead. Consecutive walks to Bobby Cooper and
Torres loaded the bases for Brian Faasse, who came
through with an RBI single.
Taylor Manning then hit a grounder to short but
the throw home was late, making the score 3-0 with
no outs and the bases still loaded. An RBI single by
Luther Sasser and a sacrifice fly by Bobby Gibbons
rounded out the scoring in the first.
Manatee National fought back in its half of the
inning on consecutive doubles by Jon Hunter and
Corey Heflin to cut the score to 5-1. Brad Blackwell
then hit a hard grounder that got past Cooper at first
base to score Heflin and send Blackwell to third.
Ryan Pope followed with a bunt down first, scoring
Blackwell for the last run of the inning and a 5-3
score.

the second when Dagger reached on a close play at
first and moved to second on a passed ball. Curt
Wilson then singled to right field, sending Dagger to
third. When Brian Faasse hesitated before throwing
the ball in, Dagger broke for the plate and scored,
making it 5-4, with Wilson going all the way to
third.
Shawn Kincaid bunted his way on, putting run-
ners on first and third. With Kincaid running on the
next pitch, Torres faked the throw to second before
wheeling and nailing Wilson at third for the second
out.
A single by Hunter and an interference call
against Manning plated Kincaid to tie the score. A
bunt by Heflin and an error by Dowling on the
mound allowed Hunter to score. Dowling then in-
duced a pop up to Cooper for the third out with Anna
Maria trailing 6-5.
Anna Maria was held scoreless in the fourth

pitcher and first base. Cooper held his ground just
off first to disrupt the fielder, then broke for second,
allowing Krauss to score with runners on first and
second and one out.
Faasse singled to load the bases for Manning,
who drew a walk to force in the tying run. Sasser struck
out for the second out, setting the stage for Gibbons
who came through with an RBI single to plate Cooper
with the lead run.
Kincaid relieved on the mound for National and
induced Chris Nelson to ground out and end the inning.
National's Sam Caputo led off the bottom of the
sixth with a walk but got erased when Kincaid
grounded to Manning at third. That brought Hunter up
with a man on first. He hit a short pop fly 10 feet down
the third-base line. Torres threw off his mask and took
one step before diving to make a fully outstretched
catch with his glove flat on the ground. He then jumped
up and threw to first to double off Kincaid and end the
game with an 8-7 win for the Islanders.

plate but Manatee East was waiting for that and eas-
ily gunned Faasse out at home.
Anna Maria took the lead in the bottom of the
second when Manning and Luther Sasser led off
with singles, bringing Bobby Gibbons to the plate.
Gibbons laid down a bunt but Manning was forced
out at third.
Billy Malfese walked, loading the bases for
Krauss, who responded with an infield single to
score Sasser with the tying run. That brought Rob-
erts to the plate with the bases still loaded and one
out. Roberts worked the pitcher for an RBI walk to
bring Gibbons in with the eventual winning run
making the score 3-2.
The rest of the game was all Manning on the
mound except for the fifth inning when Manatee
East hit three balls hard to the outfield. First up was
Mike King who ripped a line drive to right-center
that Faasse made a sliding catch on for the first out.
Next up was Brian Smith, who tested Faasse but
again he was equal to the task in making a tumbling
catch after a long run. Manning surrendered a walk
to Bobby Huffstutler before Bill Karkowski hit a
frozen rope to right-center. Krauss made a long run
from left-center before making a completely laid out,
diving catch to end the inning and essentially the
game as Manning retired Manatee East one-two-
three in the sixth to win the game.

two days due to a protest concerning substitution
rules.
The protest occurred in the bottom of the second
inning with Luther Sasser at bat and American lead-
ing 4-0. The debate centered around whether the an-
nounced starting pitcher who took warm-up
tosses on the mound could be replaced by another
pitcher, then come back and pitch an inning later.
The rule book says he can't, but tournament of-
ficials thought otherwise so the game resumed the
following night with American leading 4-0. The Is-
landers failed to generate much offense in the sec-
ond as Mario Torres was the only batter to reach
base.
Manatee American extended their lead to 5-0 on

It's not temperate re, it's sea level that's rising


You're right if you can't remember it ever being
this hot.
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
officials have said that the month of June was the hot-
test June ever recorded. Last month's worldwide tem-
perature extremes bested records more than 100 years
old and unfortunately appear to be the harbinger of
even more things to come.
Last week's discussions on the floor of the U.S.
House of Representatives again brought up the issue of
global warming. Many scientists agree that the increase
in carbon dioxide, caused by human habitation on the
planet, being trapped in the atmosphere, causes a
change in the Earth's temperatures a trend that is
generally warmer.
Climatic changes aren't going to be wildly ex-
treme, experts predict. It won't be 80 degrees in Feb-
ruary in Buffalo, for example, and there won't be snow
flurries in Key West in August, but there will be hot-
ter hot months and colder cold months in the century.
The prevailing trend, though, will be warmer, with
some predictions of mean temperatures at 2 to 6 de-
grees warmer by the beginning of the 22nd century.
As the Earth warms, polar ice caps and glaciers
will melt, and the melting will raise the global level of
seawater. That's bad news for those of us on barrier
islands the Gulf of Mexico and Anna Maria Sound
could be lapping at the doorsteps of many waterfront
homes.
Estimates conducted for the Sarasota Bay National
Estuary Program indicate sea level will rise one-half
foot by the year 2020, more than one foot by 2065, and
more than two feet by 2115 long from now for us
but merely a blip in the Earth's history.
Slap on a freak high tide, and hip boots may be de
figure for Island parties by the middle of next century.

A little history
During the last ice age, about 18,000 years ago, tem-
peratures averaged nine degrees colder than today, and sea
level was estimated to be 328 feet lower. To bring those
numbers into perspective, the Gulf coast was located 80-
100 miles west of what is now the mouth of Tampa Bay
and the climate in Florida at the time was described as
similar to the present climate in North Carolina.
Changes in sea level are caused by changes in climate,
and therefore temperature. The changes that occurred
during the last ice age were predominantly so slow that
plant and animal life were able to adapt to changes in sea
level. That was then. Today's increase in greenhouse
gases the carbon dioxide caused by the most part by
burning of fossil fuels is expected to increase global
temperatures and accelerate rising sea levels to rates
greater than those in normal climatic cycles.
Atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide remained
relatively constant for a long period of time before the
industrial age. By about 1850, though, concentrations
of carbon dioxide started to rise, primarily attributed to
the burning of coal, oil and natural gas.
How much carbon dioxide is floating around out
there? It is estimated that burning of fossil fuels re-
leases about 16 million tons of carbon dioxide per day
into the environment.
In addition to carbon dioxide, about 20 other green-

house gases can alter global temperatures. Methane for
one, is produced by bacterial decomposition in flooded
fields, waterlogged soils, rice paddies, digestive tracts
of animals (cattle, sheep and termites) and landfills.
Other sources include release from coal seams, forest
clearing and burning, venting from oil production and
leakage from natural gas pipelines. The increased use
of nitrogen fertilizers by agriculture is believed to cause
increases in nitrous oxide, another greenhouse gas.
By the way, as an interesting note, before the hot
weather of 1997-98, the years 1987-88 were the two
warmest years on record.

More than just water
over the seawall
So the water is up a half-foot by 2020. Think about
what that will mean on Anna Maria Island:
Low-level waterfront homes will be more prone
to flooding in storms.
Low-lying streets will be covered with water
more often, making evacuation more difficult and in-
creasing the time it will take to get off the Island.
Mangroves and salt marshes the ones still left
after development, of course will probably die off
due to submersion. Mangroves are salt tolerant and can
migrate shoreward if given time; however, the rela-
tively rapid rise of sea level will not provide the plants
needed time to survive.
Deeper water in the bays will mean less light will
reach seagrasses, and many grass flats will die off.
Birds, fish and shellfish that rely on seagrasses
and mangroves for food and shelter will find food
harder to get.
Rising sea level will mean the Island's precious
beach will erode faster, causing either the need for
more renourishment projects in shorter time intervals,
relocation of beachfront homes farther inland, or the
i


creation of a "Berlin Wall" berm to surround the Island.
As saltwater moves ashore, groundwater will
become more salty. Since most of Florida gets its
drinking water from lakes or underground rivers, called
aquifers, saltwater intrusion may cause drinking water
sources to require more treatment at a greater cost.
Much of Manatee County's sewage is treated near
Tidy Island on the mainland. That low-lying area will ei-
ther need to be fortified with berms and seawalls or else
relocated elsewhere in the county at considerable cost.
Since most of Cortez is low-lying, the village's
130-plus historic homes will either have to be relocated
or will be inundated. The same flood problem will be
faced by officials at the waterfront John and Mable
Ringling Museum in Sarasota.
By the year 2115, a sea-level rise of more than
two feet will mean that abandonment of existing devel-
opment on much of the barrier islands in the Sarasota
Bay area would be required, as large portions of the
barrier island could be underwater during higher high
tides.

Solutions?
Short of installing a dike around the Island, about
the only way to stay a sea level rise is to stop it's cause:
stop burning fossil fuels.
The United States and other countries have dis-
cussed a treaty to limit the amount of industrial use of
fossil fuels, but the matter has been mired in bureau-
cracy and has not yet been adopted. Critics of the treaty
say there would be a loss of jobs and an increase in the
cost of energy, food and housing.
There's even some apparent "head-in-the-sand"
views being proposed. U.S. Rep. Dan Miller of
Bradenton has said "the science is just not strong
enough to justify the serious economic impact this
treaty would have."
Miller's even gone a step farther, voting to ban the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency from "contem-
plating" global warming and instructing the agency "to
refrain from conducting educational outreach or infor-
mational seminars" on climate change.

Sandscript factoid
The Earth's surface absorbs enough solar energy in
40 minutes to supply a year's worth of power for the
entire population on the planet.

Snapper snapping up bait offshore


By Capt. Mike Heistand
The hot fish this week seems to be snapper, with
reports of the tasty critters coming from almost every-
one. Other action continues to be tarpon, redfish, cobia
and catch-and-release snook.
Fishers at the Rod and Reel Pier report catching
a few snapper, some mackerel and one large shark.
Anglers at the Anna Maria City Pier are reeling
in mackerel, a lot of mangrove snapper and a few
sharks.
Capt. Thom Smith at Angler's Repair said redfish
up to 30 inches were his week's highlight, as well as a
few catch-and-release snook and some trout.
Capt. Jason Henzell on the Neva-Miss said he's
getting into some eight-pound dolphin using yellow
and white jigs with cut bait about 20 miles offshore,
ambeijack up to 30 pounds using jigs and live pinfish,
and mangrove snapper up to six pounds in about 80 feet
of water. He's also been brining in 28-pound cobia on
live pinfish offshore.
Capt. Rick Gross said mangrove snapper to 15
inches, lots of trout and catch-and-release snook were
his week's best catches.
Capt. Mark Bradow said he's still finding lots of
tarpon off the beaches, with a few small sharks and a
few permit.
On my boat Magic we're catching redfish, man-
grove snapper and a few nice-sized trout, up to 23
inches long.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said mangrove
snapper are all over the place. Redfish are still being
caught in the backwater, and offshore fishing features
grouper, scamp, and snapper on the bottom. If you go
out in the Gulf, try trolling for wahoo, tuna and dolphin,


Horseshoe winners
Winner in the July 15 horseshoe games was
Jack Cooper of Holmes Beach. Runner-up was
Ron Pepka of Anna Maria.
Winners in the July 18 games were Roger
Kipp of Siesta Key and Bill Starrett of Anna
Maria. Runners-up were John Bennett of Anna
Maria and Russ Stemple of Bradenton.
The weekly contests get underway every.
Wednesday and Saturday at 9 a.m. at Anna
Maria City Hall Park, 10005 Gulf Drive. There
are no membership fees and everyone is wel-
come.

Big spotties
Ken and Margie Ward of Tampa caught a couple huge redfish while fishing with Capt. Tom Chaya in the


backwaters.
Bill added.
Mark at Captain's Marina said his rental boats are
bringing in lots of trout from the deep seagrass flats,
plus a few mackerel, pompano and flounder.
At the South Skyway Fishing Pier, look for


USON


sharks, lots of mackerel in the mornings, big jacks,
flounder and a few legal-sized cobia.
Good luck and good fishing.

Sea turtle time uncovers tiny hatchlings


Over and over again turtle workers wonder if all their
sleepless nights, all their bug-bitten evenings have
done the slightest bit of good ... but who knows? Per-
haps in 100 years scientists will look back to these
people and say they were instrumental in saving the
loggerhead population from extinction. There could be
no better reward.
"Time Of The Turtle," by Jack Rudloe

Volunteers with the Island's Turtle Watch pro-
gram will be working overtime in the coming weeks
and months as they shepherd the estimated 17,600 sea
turtle hatchlings from the shore to the water.
Suzi Fox, head of the group, said 160 turtle nests
are on the Island, most in Bradenton Beach. "The bulk
of the nests are from the Manatee Public Beach south,"
she said.
Starting in May, female sea turtles begin their trek
ashore to perpetuate the species. The huge turtles lum-
ber out of the water and trudge through the sand to a
spot that fits their fancy. Using her flippers, the female
digs a pit and deposits about 110 ping-pong-sized eggs
in the nest. Mother turtle then covers the nest and
makes her way back into the waves.
Turtle Watch volunteers then step in to help.
Every morning, members of the group walk. the
length of the Island. When they spot a nest easy to
do because of the tractor-like trail the female leaves in
the sand they mark the nest with a stake, indicat-
ing the date the nest was made.
On rare occasions, if the nest appears to be some
danger of damage or if it appears to be too close to the
water, the group will relocate the eggs elsewhere on
the beach.
If there has been a problem with other nests in, the
area due to raccoons or dogs digging up the eggs for
a snack, volunteers enclose the nest with a wire mesh.
Then, between 45 and 70 days later, the fun be-
gins.
Waiting until nightfall, the tiny turtles dig their way
through the sand and scamper into the water. The little
hatchlings are in a swimming frenzy for the first few days
of their life and, barring problems encountered along the
way with birds or marine life that finds turtle hors
d'oeuvres a delicacy, only rest when they are several
miles offshore within Sargasso weed colonies.
A turtle's life isn't a very safe one, though. Only
about one turtle per nest grows to maturity.
Although the season is only about half over, the
number of nests and estimated number of turtles so far
is about the same as in earlier years. In 1997, 161 sea
turtle nests housed 17,101 eggs and sent forth 12,651
baby turtles.
One man-made problem that turtles, both young
and old, face is light.
Female turtles use the faint glimmer from the Gulf


One of the most endangered sea turtles, a Kemp's ridley, was stranded on Anna Maria last week. Turtle Watch
Director Suzi Fox said the young turtle was taken to Mote Marine Laboratory after suffering from exhaustion
after it was caught in a rip current off the Island. The turtle was expected to fully recover and will be taken
offshore for release back into the Gulf of Mexico. Islander Photo: Bonner Presswood


of Mexico to guide them back to the water after depos-
iting eggs. If bright lights from houses or streets distract
her, the female may become disoriented and head to-
ward the house or road.
The same lighting problem faces the hatchlings,
and unfortunately the Island has had its share of turtles
crushed under car tires as they inadvertently head to-
ward a road instead of the waters of the Gulf.
Fox said it is vital that Gulffront homeowners turn
out or shield any lights facing the beach for the next
few months.
Another problem that turtles are facing is people
tampering with the wire-mesh cages that cover the
nests. Fox said last week someone closed the cages that
volunteers had opened, a situation that could have
trapped the hatchlings in the nest and cost them part of
that valuable swimming frenzy that helps get them off-
shore.
Both federal and state law prohibits tampering with
sea turtles in any way, either dead or alive. Federal law
prescribes up to a $25,000 fine for civil infractions,
$50,000 for criminal.
State law says you may spend up to 60 days in jail
and/or a $500 fine in addition to $100 per disturbance
to any nest or $100 per egg that investigators deter-
mine may have been damaged due to the disturbance.

Turtle trivia

There are two species of sea turtles that
nest on Anna Maria Island. The most common
is the Loggerhead. Occasionally a Green will
nest here.
There are eight species of sea turtles:
Green, Black, Loggerhead, Kemp's Ridley, Ol-
ive Ridley, Hawksbill, Flatback and Leather-
back.
Loggerheads reach about 32-41 inches and
weigh about 146 to 223 pounds. Green turtles
are somewhat larger going up to 44 inches and
410 pounds. The largest is the Leatherback,
which when mature can be six feet long and
weigh more than 1,000 pounds. The Ridleys are
the smallest of sea turtles, reaching weights of a
little more than 100 pounds.
Turtles appeared about 245 to 208 million
years ago. They are one of the only surviving
seawater-adapted reptiles.
Sea turtles cannot retract their head and
limbs.
Sea turtles do not have an external ear open-
ing but can respond to sounds and vibrations.
Sea turtles can see well under water but are
shortsighted in the air. They have large upper
eyelids that protect their eyes.
It is believed that sea turtles have an acute
sense of smell in the water.
Sea turtles have a salt gland to rid their
bodies of excess salt. This gland empties in their
eyes. The secretion of salt and fluid makes them
look as il they are crying when they come
ashore. This helps keep the eves free of sand
while digging their nests.
For the most part. the only time turtles
need to leave the sea is when females haul out
to lay eggs. The male rarely leaves the water.
Sea turtles are not generally considered
social animals. They do gather to mate and some
species travel together to nesting grounds. After
hatchlings reach the water they generally remain
solitary until they mate.
Nesting usually occurs during the warmest
months of the year, May through August.
Most females return to the same nesting
beach each year.
Females usually come ashore at night,
alone most often during high tide. She crawls
above the high tide line and, using her front flip-
pers, digs out a body pit. Using her hind flippers,
she then digs an egg cavity. A Loggerhead's nest
is approximately 18 inches deep.

Tunnel-hull boat gets Heistand through shallows

Capt. Mike Heistand's environmentally correct fish-
ing boat allows him to run in a foot or less of water with-
out ripping up the turtle grass that is essential to sea life.
The 23-foot center console hull is designed and
produced by Cedar Key Shallow Draft with a tunnel r .
about four feet long and 12 inches wide that allows the
propeller to sit raised up.
The jack plate holding the 175-horsepower
Evinrude has nine inches of travel.
At a top speed of 40 mph, Heistand's boat draws
seven inches of water.
"It's the only boat I know of where the prop can
run above the keel of the boat," Heistand said. "There
are other tunnel hulls made but the tunnel is from bow
to stern and they cavitate badly." What can be better than a boat that can't harm a
Heistand loves to go into shallow water located in manatee, won't scar seagrass beds and can slip
obscure portions of Tampa Bay and his boat Magic through less than afoot of water? Capt. Mike
allows him to do it. 'Heistand's boat does all that and more, making it
Miguel Bay and the waters around Joe Island are a perfect flats boat for Island waters. The secret
Heistand favorites for snook and redfish. The boat allows is a special tunnel hull, based on a design called
him to take customers to some of the prettiest scenery in Cedar Key Shallow Draft out of Chiefland, Fla.
Florida. Plus there are monster snook in both places.
"Ninety percent of the snook we catch are 10
pounds and under," Heistand said. "Occasionally you
catch a 35-incher. What I like about this boat is it
doesn't tear up the turtle grass and doesn't scar the
bottom. It also can't prop scar a manatee because the
animal's body can't fit in the one-foot wide tunnel."


BOATS, CONTINUED FROM PAGE 2-B
Squeeze the release lock and push the lever for-
ward, and the boat will move forward. The farther for-
ward you push, the faster the boat goes. Pull the lever
back, and the same thing happens in reverse. Move
very slowly in reverse or you will take in water.
Steering is the same as in an automobile. Turn the
steering wheel in the direction you wish to go.

STOPPING THE BOAT
Don't aim your boat directly at a person in the
water or at a pier or another boat. If you misjudge, you
are likely to collide. Approach slowly and come along-


side. Novices tend to approach too fast.
Although a power boat settles quickly and slows rap-
idly after the power is shut down, it will continue to move
some after the motor has been stopped or put into neutral.
but you lose steerageway and you won't be able to maneu-
ver very well. Aim the boat where you want to stop be-
fore you cut the motor or shift to neutral. Shift to neutral
slightly earlier than you thank you should.
If you fall short you can always shift back into for-
ward gear for a low speed boost to get into position.
To stop a manual or pull-start motor, turn the twist
grip Ito stop and push the button that kills the engine.
To stop an electric-start motor, turn the key all the way


to the left to shut it off-just like an automobile.

SIGNALING FOR HELP
Raise and lower outstretched arms slowly and re-
peatedly. If you can, hold a brightly colored object in
each hand.
Use a mirror. On a sunny day the reflection can be
seen for miles.
Signal SOS with a flashlight at night three short.
three long, three short.
Fire a flare or a smoke bomb that releases a bright
yellow smoke.
Sound you horn or whistle rapidly and repeatedly.

You don't have to be in or on the water to enjoy
the waterfront, and although there are a slew of boat-
ing-friendly restaurants in the area, you most defi-
nitely don't need a yacht to enjoy the Island ambi-
ence of sun, sand and surf.
Now is the perfect time of year to enjoy a snack
at your favorite restaurant. With winter season ended
and the waiting lines of February and March all but
disappeared, reservations are still a good idea. Res-
taurateurs appreciate knowing you're coming.
Here are a few favorite choices of Islanders for
dining on or near the Island. It's also a good idea to
call ahead to double-check hours of operation or to
get any special details not mentioned here. So, in no
particular order, wind with us toward the waterfront:
Anna Maria Oyster Bar, 100 Bay Boulevard,
Anna Maria, (on the historic Anna Maria City Pier),
778-0475. There's not too many restaurants brag-
ging to be this far out in the water. Watch fishermen
reel in their catch with the Skyway Bridge in the
backdrop. Great seafood and gumbo are offered as
well as pasta specialties.
Annie's Kitchen at Annie's Bait & Tackle, 4334
127th St. W., Cortez, 794-3580. Here's a real old
Florida spot where you can gas up, pick up sandwiches,
bait and beer and take off again or sit a spell. You
can relax and watch the waterway traffic while enjoy-
ing the selection of sandwiches, hoagies, salads,
nachos and peel-and eat-shrimp at this local's favorite.
Bridge Street Pier Cafe, 200 Bridge St.,
Bradenton Beach, (on the Bradenton Beach City Pier),
779-1706. Another occasion to dine, literally, on the
water, the Pier Cafe specializes in "all-you-can-eat"
grouper and seafood specialties. Or, you can catch your
own. The remodeled pier offers a close-up view of the
Intracoastal Waterway and the Cortez Bridge.

entertainment. Seafood is a specialty here.
Sandbar Restaurant, 100 Spring Ave., Anna

another place at least as good as the Beach House to

the deck, or have a New York strip steak in the dining
room. They're open seven days a week.

ence with its sightseeing and dinner cruises.
The Fishnet Restaurant, 4628 119th St. W.,
Cortez, 795-5976. This newcomer to the village of
Cortez is really no newcomer at all. Having operated

of the area's oldest fish houses still in operation. Sea-
food is tops on the list here but you'll also find all the
favorites of a full-service restaurant.

More tips for


water safety
Each day, hundreds of Islanders head for our
coastal and inland waters. Here are some tips to
help make those trips safe:

TOWING THE BOAT
Check the trailer's fit to make sure the boat is
held snugly on rollers and other contact points.
No part of the boat or trailer, except the hitch,
should touch your car during a maximum turn.
The safety chains should have enough slack to
allow for such turns.
Be sure your lights, brakes and license meet the
requirements of all the states in which you travel.
Follow this checklist: Motor on boat should be
firmly secured and locked on the transom. Make sure
there is even distribution of gear in the boat. All parts
should be checked for tightness and proper operation.
All tie-downs should be firmly knotted. Gas tank lids
should be tightened. All lights should be working.
The hitch load should be balanced. Tires on the trailer
and car should be properly inflated.

LAUNCHING THE BOAT
Have a guide stand at the rear of the trailer and
call out instructions. Turn your steering wheel in
the opposite direction to the way the rear of the
boat should go. Turn the wheels of your automo-
bile to the left when backing up, and the trailer will
swing to the right, and vice versa.

LIFE JACKET TIPS
Life jackets are designed to keep your head
above water and to help you remain in a position
which permits proper breathing. An average adult
needs artificial buoyancy of seven to 12 pounds to
remain afloat.
More than 90 percent of deaths in boating are
from drowning. Eighty percent of those drowning
victims are not wearing life jackets.
