Islander held on federal drug charges


Island businessman and community activist Dale T.
Marler was arrested on federal drug charges on Aug. 18.
In connection with that investigation, Holmes
Beach police and Manatee County sheriff's deputies ar-
rested Noreen Joseph, 49, of 8108 Gulf Drive, Holmes
Beach, on four counts of sale of marijuana on Aug. 25.
Marler, 55. of 528 56th St., Holmes Beach, was
charged with intent to distribute marijuana and 500
grams or more of cocaine. Federal agents, along with
Manatee County sheriff's deputies, arrested Marler in
Palmetto Aug. 18 after a four-month investigation by
four agencies.



Grassy Point


contingent


on way to


Tallahassee
By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
With hopes high and fire in their eyes, people de-
termined to make Grassy Point "another Leffis Key"
are on their money trek to Tallahassee.
The grant expert among them is confident of suc-
cess on one front, hopeful on two others.
Jaime Doubek wrote the application for a grant
from the Florida Communities Trust, and she is the
principal fighter for its fulfillment. She's on the staff
of the Sarasota Bay National Estuary Program, which
is committed to wetlands preservation.
She and Rick Ashley, Holmes Beach city treasurer,
will confront the Trust's governing board Thursday,
Aug. 27, in a major effort for Grassy Point money.
Holmes Beach wants to buy the 37 acres of pristine
mangrove wetlands on Sarasota Bay just south of the
Manatee Avenue bridge as passive-use park. Estimated
cost is $715,350.
Other local grant applications include one for
$320,000 to buy the old schoolhouse at the eastern edge
of Cortez, and another for $1,595,585 for Riverview
Pointe, upland habitat on the Manatee River adjacent
to the DeSoto Memorial in West Bradenton.
After an evaluation, the Trust's staff awarded
Cortez 197.5 points, Riverview 195, Grassy Point 180.
Doubek said $60 million was available and its ranking
put Grassy Point at the $65 million level.
She has no quarrel with the Cortez and Riverview
showing she wrote those applications too --but
questions at least one phase of the staff evaluation.
"They gave us zero points for the local Compre-
hensive Plan, but I've checked the Holmes Beach
Comp Plan over and over and, sure enough, it does
indeed refer specifically to recreation facilities, where
the staff thought it didn't.
"I hope I can convince them to change that from
zero to plus five. That will give us 185."
Additionally, she and Ashley will ask the board
to award Grassy Point up to 10 more points for
"project excellence." And, too, the Trust is expected
to have an additional $10 to $20 million back from
projects completed this year.
Any of the foregoing, she is sure, would put the
Holmes Beach project over the top.
In addition to Doubek and Ashley, Charles Hunsicker
of the Manatee County Planning Department will speak
Thursday for the Cortez and Riverview projects and thank
the board for those anticipated grants.
Doubek said expressions of local citizen support
are very helpful, and it's not too late right up until
Thursday morning. They should be addressed to the
Florida Communities Trust, Department of Commu-
nity Affairs, fax number (850) 921-1747.


"In April, our department started getting informa-
tion about Marler's possible drug involvement," ex-
plained Lt. Dale Stephenson of the Holmes Beach Po-
lice Department. "In late June I had a report of an un-
related matter and when I investigated, the information
started coming together."
During the past year, Marler served as foreman of
the U.S. District Court grand jury that indicted the Rev.
Henry Lyons in Tampa. Lyons was charged with tax
evasion, extortion, conspiracy, money laundering and
bank fraud.
Ironically, former grand jury foreman Marler is in


jail in Tampa awaiting his hearing by a federal grand
jury, Executive Assistant U.S. Attorney Monte
Richardson said.
"We consider him a drug dealer and are seeking
an indictment by the grand jury," Richardson said.
Asked why there was federal interest in a drug
suspect with allegedly a relatively small amount of
contraband. Richardson said, "He was a [grand
jury] foreman."
Richardson added that "all drug cases share

Lighting culprit
Ninety-six baby turtles bit the brightly lighted dust
of the Coconuts Beach Resort pool and parking lot
Monday night, and Turtle Watchers are outraged.
The hatchlings came out of a nest three blocks down
the beach, said Sabine Buehler, and they struggled all the
way to the lights of Coconuts and their death.
Buehler is Turtle Watch coordinator for the section
of the Gulf beach between the Sandbar restaurant and
the Martinique condominiums. In all that stretch, she
said, only Coconuts and the Martinique "are lit up like
Christmas trees."
"We [Turtle Watch people] have talked to them
and the city code enforcement officer has talked to
them, but the flood lights and pool lights are on all
night and even the apartments on the beach side don't
close their shades."
She and her fellow volunteers counted 102 hatched
eggs in the sea turtle nest, and followed their trails to
find only five live hatchlings and one crushed to death
at the Coconuts. She blamed birds for the demise of
many hatchlings, the result of the long landward trek
down the beach to the Coconuts.
Hatchlings are programmed by nature to head
toward the sea, which is brighter at night from the
twinkle of moon and star light than the land. Lights
ashore glow stronger than the water, often with
deadly results.
Other than Coconuts and Martinique, Buehler said,
that section of the beach is "just great" at night. She


in turtle deaths
especially lauded the Nlautilus, Harrington House.
S.~ ii. and Bali 1 lai for shutting down seaward lights,
and said residents of condos along the beach started
cooperating even before turtle nesting season.
"They all could do it," she said. "I know they need
some lighting for insurance purposes, but they could
have three instead of 10, and make them yellow. Or
sensor lights, which turn off and on as needed."
She and her fellow volunteers keep track of nests from
midnight to 5 a.m., and "we're really tired by now."
"1 can't stand to see dead turtles," she said. "That
little one with its body crushed and its eyes sticking out,
that was just too much."

Bob Delaney speaks kids listen!


By Kevin Cassidy
Islander Reporter
Anna Maria Island teens and parents recently lis-
tened to a motivational speech by 12-year National
Basketball Association referee Bob Delaney at the
"Reach for the stars" back-to-school program at the
Anna Maria Island Community Center.
The event was part of the Center's REACH (Re-
sponsible Educated Adolescents Can Help) program,
where members participate in year-long activities
such as sports, job training, community service and
other events to teach responsibility and respect.
Last year's REACH program served 209 boys and
girls ages 10 through 17. Projections for this year are
to serve up to 300 teens.


DRUG ARREST, FROM PAGE 1
equal responsibility among local, state and federal
agencies."
In the 1970s, Marler served as
executive assistant to then-U.S.
Senator Lawton Chiles, now
Florida's governor. He shared own-
ership with other family members in
Buck Creek Groves, was active in
the Island Baptist Church and
coached Little League at the Anna
Maria Island Community Center.
Marler In recent years, the family
operated a winter citrus and veg-
etable business in Holmes Beach, most recently at 59th
Street and Marina Drive adjoining Island Auto Body.
"We started our reports on Marler on July 6 and the
sheriffs office came on board July 8," Holmes Beach's
Stephenson said.
"We notified the U.S. Attorney's office and the
FBI after we found out about his grand jury duty. It was
a joint investigation down the line."
Stephenson said the case was made using confiden-
tial sources, both on and off the Island. He estimated
that Marler's drug activities have been on-going for
about two years.


Due in part to
Saturday's foul weather,
there wasn't a big turnout
but those that were in at-
tendance heard Delaney's
message loud and clear.
His message wasn't unlike
that of any parent or edu-
cator who tries to motivate
children to set goals and-
make sacrifices to work Delaney
towards those goals.
What separates Delaney from the rest of us is the
fact that he exudes a certain amount of "star quality"
that makes kids and parents tune in and really listen. He


"On Tuesday [Aug. 8] we learned of a possible
drug deal and did surveillance, then the sheriffs office
made the arrest," Stephenson said. "They searched
Marler's car and found a good deal of marijuana and
cocaine."
According to police, Marler made arrangements to
sell an ounce of cocaine to a confidential informant.
Police say he met with a man identified as Jose Luiz
Carmen-Melchor, 24, in Palmetto. Carmen-Melchor
was later charged with possession of cocaine and re-
leased from jail on $1,000 bail.
Marler was stopped by police, who reported dis-
covery of 26 grams of cocaine and a half-pound of
marijuana in his car.
Marler was denied bail on Thursday by a U.S.
magistrate because of "information we had that he had
threatened individuals with great bodily harm,"
Stephenson noted.
"We are interviewing other persons who are pos-
sibly involved in the case and there may be more ar-
rests, both on and off the Island," Stephenson said.
"There's still a lot of work to be done."
Marler is being held without bail. If convicted of
the charges, he faces a maximum fine of $2 million,
imprisonment for five to 40 years and four years of
supervised release, according to Richardson.


couples that with a gift for speaking that is rich in
knowledge, humor and wisdom from his experiences
in law enforcement and as a National Basketball Asso-
ciation referee.
He shares stories of experiences from famous NBA
players and their path to the top of their profession and
draws parallels with everyday activities and tempta-
tions that teens face growing up.
Delaney's message is best summed up by his own
words, telling the kids that they all can be in the NBA
if they dedicate themselves to setting goals and work-
ing towards them: "Never Be Average!"

munity Center at 778-1908 and ask for Seth

Move to reinstate Kirk dropped


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Moves to reinstate the Rev. Wayne D. Kirk as
Roser Memorial Community Church's pastor ap-
peared doomed this week, with the two men closest
to the matter Kirk and staunch supporter John
Adams indicating it's over.
The minister told The Islander Bystander, "1
have resigned, and do not plan to return."
As for reports among church members that he
has accepted another position, he responded, "No
comment."
Adams, Roser deacon who has been a leader of
those objecting to the departure of Kirk and of the
manner in which it came about, said: "I don't think
it would be possible to bring him back."
Kay Beverly, chair of the congregation and of
the church's governing body, the Church Council,
stated, "He says he has resigned and as far as I'm
concerned he has resigned, period. It's been diffi-
cult, but everything is going to be fine."
Following Kirk's admission to accusations of in-
timate relations with a woman he was counseling, he
left Roser's pulpit in a resignation accepted June 15
by the Board of Deacons.
The board subsequently voted 23-3, Adams said,
to rescind its acceptance.
In a letter dated July 14, Kirk told the congrega-
tion, "I love you all greatly ... [but] it is necessary
to refuse to reconsider my resignation."
He expressed remorse, sorrow and shame and
further said he had been in counseling and was de-
voting himself to repairing his marriage.
Church members say he has succeeded in doing
so.
Subsequently Adams circulated a statement ob-
jecting to the way the matter was handled, and
church member Arden Lerfald wrote an open letter
to the congregation urging members to "forgive and
not condemn."
Adams, who said he joined the church 52 years
ago, said three polls show 95 percent of the members
favor Rev. Kirk, and Lerfald said his letter drew re-


sponses from 58 people, 54
of them favoring keeping
Kirk as pastor.
"There probably will
be a church gathering in
September, when people
are back from up north, as a
continuing increase in our s
effort for Rev. Kirk,"
Lerfald said.
According to Adams, Kirk
Kirk's eloquence is such
that the church has filled orders for 200 tapes of
his sermons each week and membership had
grown by 10 percent each of the three years Kirk
was pastor.
Adams charges the pastor was "railroaded by a
tiny minority that did not seek the congregation's
feelings.
Adams said, "The lesson this gives to our
children and the world by our handling of Wayne
is that if you sin you will receive less understand-
ing, less help and less justice from Roser Church
than you will from the Holmes Beach Police De-
partment, and that is a very sorry lesson."
Adams' comments stem from a disturbance call
made to Holmes Beach police involving Kirk on
June 8, which subsequently brought the pastor's situ-
ation to the attention of Beverly and other church
members.
Adams told The Islander Bystander: "My objec-
tive is not to blow the church apart, but find how to
bring it together."
Meanwhile, the Revs. Jan and Mike Smith of
Anna Maria City will fill in as interim pastors start-
ing Aug. 30, Beverly said.
The church at 512 Pine Ave., Anna Maria City,
is the oldest on the Island, founded in 1913 by John
and Caroline Roser. With some 900 members now,
it has begun a building program, adding a $265,000
narthex and portico with more to come when more
money has been raised -- "' will have no debts."
said Beverly.

Proposed rental ordinances sent to planners


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach city commissioners recently sent
two proposed ordinances on residential rentals to the
planning commission for recommendations.
According to the ordinance which commissioners
have been considering for more than a year, residential
rentals would be limited to 30 days in the R-1 and R-3
districts and to 14 days in the R-2 district. According
to existing ordinances, seven-day rentals are permitted
in the R-4 district and 30-day rentals are permitted in
the R-1AA district.
The property cannot be rented more than once dur-
ing the designated rental period, but the rental can be
of any length. The ordinance also makes renting in a
residential district a permitted accessory use and in-
cludes grandfather status and mandatory registration of
nonconformities with a specific cut-off date.
A second ordinance, recently proposed by Com-
missioner Roger Lutz, prohibits the renting of any
property east of Gulf Drive in the R 1AA and R 1 zon-
ing districts for any period that is less than 30 days and


more than three times a year.
City Attorney Patricia Petruff said she added a pro-
vision for grandfathering to Lutz's ordinance but the
commission must decide whether or not to retain that
provision.
"Mine was a compromise," Lutz noted. "I thought
it was a good starting place. My thought was that the
commission would not pass any ordinance that affects
the whole city."
Commissioner Luke Courtney said he feels the city
will be sued if Lutz's proposal is passed because it only
addresses one zoning district.
"If this passes, we can look at another district,"
Lutz replied.
Commission Chairman Don Maloney brought up
the problem of enforcement.
"That's not logical," Lutz replied. "If I have a prob-
lem in my neighborhood, I'll get it enforced. If the
neighbors aren't offended maybe it doesn't need to be
enforced."
"More people are coming here to buy real estate,
not to live permanently but as an investment," resident


and real estate agent Michael Advocate said. "They
want to come here part time and maybe retire here.
Don't take away people's rights until there's a need for
it."
"The problem is people who object to the fact that
this is turning into an investment Island rather than
what they came here for in the first place," Maloney
responded.
Resident and motel owner Joy Courtney, wife of
Commissioner Luke Courtney, said the commission
should resolve the issue of whether renting residential
property is considered conducting a business, which is
prohibited in the city's residential districts.
"Since the 1960s, our city codes have always had
a prohibition on conducting a business in a residential
district, except for home occupation licenses, but we
never had a definition of doing business until 1994,"
Petruff noted. "We've never had a court decide at what
point, if any, the rental of real property becomes a busi-
ness."
The planning commission plans to discuss the or-
dinances at 1 p.m. Sept. 14.


Anna Maria salary talks get second going over


By Susan K. Kesselring
Islander Reporter
It's not a question of whether city employees will
get a raise, it is a question of how much. What does
remain to be seen for the 1998-99 budget, however, is
which organizations will receive donations from the
City of Anna Maria.
At the Aug. 18 second budget workshop Vice
Mayor Doug Wolfe said the commission knew going
in that it was going to be a continuance of the previous
week's salary discussion meeting.
Commissioner Robert McElheny said he would
like to see the staff receive no more than a 2 1/2 per-
cent increase.
Wolfe said a 10 percent raise across the board
amounts to $23,179, which includes the amount figured
in for pensions and other benefits. "That is less than
what it costs to pave a new road," he said.
Commissioner George McKay said that a large

increase may not benefit some of the employees be-
cause it might put them into a different tax bracket. As
a result of the increase, they may be bringing home less
money at the end of the year.
McElheny said the commission needs to look at the
city as a business. He said city employees are given
benefits not available to much of the civilian world.
He said they get 12 sick days a year, 10 holidays.
two personal days and vacation days.
According to McElheny, the city pays 100 percent
of the employee's health insurance, provides uniforms
and training if needed, matches their Social Security
and on average the employees work 37.5 hours per
week.
"We have to be financially responsible to the citi-
zens of this city. None of our employees are underpaid
and two employees have been added to the payroll this
past year." he said.
McElheny said he is not attacking any one person-

ally and feels the city has fine employees. He said he
is merely attacking the thought process and looking at
the proposed increases from a business perspective.
In a continuing discussion on donations from the
city to charitable organizations, Commissioners Wolfe
and McElheny had another difference of opinion.
The World of Work program is asking for $7,000
to benefit the Anna Maria Elementary School students
and the Parent-Teacher Organization is asking for
$5.000 for new playground equipment for the school.
"We have an obligation to the taxpayers of this
city." Wolfe said. "Why should we give the money to
other cities when we can put it into our infrastructure?
How can we not service our employees and give the
money to somebody else?" he said.
McElheny said, "Those are our kids going to that
school also. To me that's infrastructure."

Pier fish-people debate


continues in Bradenton Beach


By Paul Roat
Is it a pier for fishing or strolling?
That question has again come up in Bradenton Beach,
prompting some angry words among members of the city
commission as they wrangle with definitions and usage of
the city's Bridge Street structure.
Since its creation more than 25 years ago from what
was once the wooden bridge connecting Bradenton Beach
to Cortez.
The 665-foot-long structure has been the site of
zillions of hours of pleasurable fishing and eating for fish-
ers and visitors who enjoy the views of Cortez and Anna
Maria Sound.
In the past few years, thanks mostly to about $500,000
in state grants, the pier has undergone a spectacular face
lift. Aged decking was replaced, railings added, the old
pavilion at the east end was replaced and the restaurant
enhanced.
Cabanas were added on the pier, fish-cleaning stations
with fresh water installed, and lighting was placed under
the structure rather than overhead.
Swings and picnic tables were added at the restaurant


Resident killed
in car crash
Thomas N. Mogavero, 28, of 2907 Avenue B,
was killed in a single-vehicle accident at 12:55 a.m.
Saturday, Aug. 22, after his vehicle smashed into
a palm tree near the east edge of the Cortez Bridge.
According to Florida Highway Patrol troopers,
Mogavero was driving his 1995 Jeep east on Cortez
Road, crossing the bridge. He lost control of his
vehicle as he got to the east end of the bridge. The
vehicle veered off the south shoulder of the road.
The Jeep struck a palm tree, causing it to spin,
then the left side hit another palm tree. Troopers
said Mogavero was not wearing a seat belt.


entrance and under the pavilion roof and everything got
a fresh coat of white paint compliments of scores of paint-
brush-armed volunteers.
Then complaints started rolling in from fishers, and
complaints against fishers started rolling in from officials.
Seems the anglers were chopping bait on the railing,
scoring the white finish. The picnic tables and benches
also weren't left unmarked, thanks in part to the tin-cov-
ered fish cleaning stations that butchered knives more than
fish.
And the under-rail lights, although attractive for walk-
ers at night, were hell for fishermen seeking to untangle
a line, release a fish or bait a hook. There also were secu-
rity problems at the pier, blamed in part on the dim light-
ing, with damages to swings and other fixtures.
Increased police patrols began on the pier at night to
deter vandalism, but as Police Chief Jack Maloney says,
"It's a fishing pier. I can have our officers tell somebody
not to cut bait on the railing, but I can't really enforce it."
Or, as City Commissioner Gail Cole put it, "I don't
see how you can police somebody for cutting up bait at a
fishing pier."
City Commissioner Bemeitta Kays has long been an
advocate of the fishers. She pushed for new lights on the
pier, and last week city commissioners approved about
$13,000 for seven light poles to be added on the structure.
However, as Vice Mayor John Chappie pointed out,
the lights are strategically placed at popular fishing spots.
The fish cleaning stations are not near the lights, and the
problem with railings as cutting boards could continue.
Mayor Connie Drescher said, "I do want our police
officers to go out there and if they see people cutting bait
on a picnic table or railing, tell them, 'No-no!'"
"I want to see it stay a fishing pier," Kays has repeat-
edly said.
Only time will tell.
Ironically, though, in all documents for the life of the
pier it has been referred to as a "municipal fishing pier."
Last year, a new sign added at the pier entrance off Bridge
Street proclaims, "Bradenton Beach City Pier."

Keep it clean I


To quote a once-popular phrase, "there they go
again."
"They," the members of the Bradenton Beach City
Commission, are once again or shall we say still -
wrangling over use of the Bradenton Beach Fishing/
City Pier.
This squabble is spurred by accusations that fish-
ers utilize railings, picnic tables, swings and other ar-
eas to cut bait and clean fish, scoring the finish of the
pristine white paint applied by volunteers and angering
some commissioners.
The anger comes from those who point to the
$500,000 or so and countless volunteer hours -
spent on the pier in the past few years to spruce it up,
only to have it defaced.
We're reminded of a story an architect told years
ago. He had designed a school with multiple campuses,
but didn't plan to do the landscaping or install the side-
walks until several weeks after classes had begun.
When asked why all the grounds were unfinished,
he said he wanted to see how the kids found there way
from one part of the school to another before he put in
sidewalks. And, sure enough, the paths from one point
to another were well marked by scores of little feet -
and didn't at all match his original sidewalk and land-
scape patterns.
The moral of the story is that Bradenton Beach
officials had more than 20 years to see the pattern of
use for the pier: leisurely walkers, sure, but lots of fish-
ers, night and day fishers and kid fishers. Active, not
passive, use over periods of hours, not minutes.
When the railings, picnic tables and swings were
added, the city's design should have taken the needs of
fishers into consideration. What should have been in-
stalled were myriad cutting and chopping areas. Unfor-
tunately, fishing calls for using something at hand -
like the rail rather than trekking up the pier to whack
up bait or free a hook.
And with the railings and lighting came added
problems for fishers forced to untangle a line, release
a catfish or errant bird and net their catch through the
rails and stare down into upward-aimed lights at night.
And that's just the beginning. The city has facili-
tated expansion needs of the restaurant tenant on the
pier, diminished the bait and tackle store and changed
the name of 20 years from "fishing pier" to "city pier."
If commissioners want to keep the pier "pristine," it
sounds like sections- of railing need to transform to a
couple dozen fish-cleaning stations to keep both fishers
and those upset about the scarred wood on happier terms.
If you've invested a half-million dollars on some-
thing, why not spend a few hundred more to keep it
user friendly?

I YOUR PII- 9


Island school ranked No. 1
Our Island community should be very proud of the
achievements that our students exhibited on the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test in fourth-grade reading
and fifth-grade math.
Anna Maria Elementary School ranked first in fourth-
grade reading in the county and exceeded state average
scores. The fifth-grade math scores were equally impres-
sive.
The achievements of our fine young people are cer-
tainly a positive reflection on our very fine students, ad-
ministrators, teachers, staff, parents and volunteers, which
provide a positive learning and teaching environment at
Anna Maria Elementary School.
All too often our young people and the community are
not recognized for their numerous achievements within
the schools and our very fine facilities at the Anna Maria
Island Community Center.
Perhaps additional efforts need to be put forth to as-
sist and provide intervention on a community-wide basis
for the very small minority of young people who seem to
be having difficulty with their lives which has prompted
calls for curfews for all young people.
The resources and the talented people of this commu-
nity could certainly help with a mentoring program for
those very few young people who are in need of additional
help.
Again, congratulations for the wonderful achieve-
ments of our students and to the Anna Maria Elementary
School.
My wife and our four students are "proud as pea-
cocks."
Robert, Marcia, Brick, Clay, Zak and
Emma Barlow, Anna Maria

Let's set the record straight
Since many residents and readers of The Islander
Bystander are not familiar with the circumstances that
have necessitated the move of Coast Guard Auxiliary Flo-
tilla 81 Anna Maria from its Cortez location, we would
like to respond to a recent article and explain the presen-
tation which was given to city commissioners.
Flotilla 81 possessed a 30-year lease at the Cortez
location, which will expire on Nov. 28, 1998. The present


property has come under new ownership and the lease will
not be renewed.
Having started as Flotilla 99 on Anna Maria Island
and now renumbered Flotilla 81, it was the only rescue
facility south of St. Petersburg, predating U.S. Coast
Guard Station Cortez and have 36 years continuous ser-
vice to the community.
We have expanded our volunteer services and as-
sisted in hundreds of boating related safety rescues. The
need for more coverage led us to help start two other flo-
tillas; 83 Manatee and 85 Palmetto.
It is the plan of Flotilla 81 to erect a facility compli-
mentary to the surroundings which will be made perma-
nent on a cement foundation and enhanced by landscap-
ing and other amenities. This is not a portable building
and the artist's drawing which was shared with Holmes
Beach government can be viewed by anyone, on request.
A request was not made to be at the ramps, but was
rather drawn in that location when the commissioners
suggested this would be a favorable spot because of the
nature of the auxiliary's service. A suitable location has
been requested by Flotilla 81 to the Holmes Beach gov-
erning body for our building.
Mention has been made that we go to U.S. Coast
Guard Station Cortez. The station does not have commo-
dious rooms for meetings and training. There is barely
enough room for the extensive programs of the Coast
Guard itself.
Chief Huff is, however, arranging temporarily for our
members to use the cafeteria area for our monthly general
meeting and a small training room for the monthly staff
session until new quarters are in place. Public education
classes in boating safety are being set up temporarily at a
public school.
At this juncture Flotilla 81 Anna Maria with a mem-
bership of 94 volunteers is grateful for the cooperation of
not only the Coast Guard but the Manatee County Schools
for their assistance.
We have always enjoyed a friendly relationship with
residents of Anna Maria and the Holmes Beach commu-
nity. Many members reside there and are interested in
maintaining this quality environment.

TOSiE WERE TIE IAYS
Part 13, Turn-of-the-Century Anna Maria
by June Alder


This faded photograph nevertheless captures the mood of the early 1900s in
Manatee County. It must be Sunday afternoon, while the womenfolk are
cleaning up after dinner. Father props his feet up on the railing of the broad
veranda while Sonny sways in the big hammock and Fido and the pet cats
doze contentedly.


EARTHQUAKE YEAR


The year 1905 marked the end of
Anna Maria Island's pioneer days. For
times were a-changing. The coming
year 1906 was the year of the San
Francisco Earthquake. The destruction
of the lively city with the loss of 700
lives seemed to temper the exuberant
frontier spirit that had characterized
America as it entered the 20th century.
Here's how 1906 unfolded for Anna
Marians and the other residents of
Manatee County according to the Mana-
tee River Journal:
Feb. 16: Mr. S.C. Cobb appeared
before the board of instruction repre-
senting patrons living on Anna Maria
Key and requested that they be granted
a four months school term. On motion
the request was granted, and Miss Alice
Wilson was appointed to teach the
school.
March 23: The 1905-06 tourist sea-
son was exceedingly successful. Visi-
tors were seen everywhere. A large
number of picnickers spent time on
Anna Maria Key. Last week a group
spent several days in Jack Leffingwell's
houseboat, the Squaw.
March 30: We invite attention to the
professional card of Capt. John R. Jones
who has located in Bradentown for the
practice of law, with offices in the Iron
Block. Capt. Jones has been a resident
of Manatee County for a number of
years, owning valuable property on
Anna Maria Key. He is an old practitio-
ner and will be found capable of han-
dling the business of his clients to the
very best advantage.
April 20: The Bradentown Literary
Club will be meeting for its annual
"gentlemen's night" on Tuesday at 8
p.m. There will be solos, duets, violin
music, readings and dancing to the
pianola. A delightful prospect for all.
April 20: The Vandalia, captained
by Captain Bill Fogarty's son, Will,
went down in a raging storm when re-
turning from a run to Key West. The fate
of the ship and its crew of three will not
be known until the remains of the ship
are found. (All hands drowned.)
April 26: The terrible earthquake in
San Francisco, with hundreds killed and


consequences not yet completely as-
sessed, is a cause for great sympathy
among us. It is to be expected that
many California citizens and other
tourists will be attracted to Florida
where conditions are so salubrious. We
will, of course, welcome them.
May 8: Mr. and Mrs. HW. Fuller
entertained friends with a lovely trip to
Anna Maria Key on board the comfort-
able yacht, Dependence. While the
guests were enjoying the surf, the host-
ess was busying herself spreading
lunch so that when the hungry bathers
returned they found awaiting them in
the dining room of the Hall house two
long tables spread with all the good
things that go into lunch baskets,
supplemented by an abundance of fried
pompano, mashed potatoes and coffee.
May 11: Mrs. Margaret Lemon and
Master Julian Fuller are spending sev-
eral days this week at the Halls' place
on Anna Maria Key. Mrs. Lemon
caught a redfish 3 feet long and 24
inches in circumference which Mr. Hall
said was the largest he's ever seen
caught during his residence of many
years on the island.
June 15: Misses Mara Harris and
Lilian Knight entertained 50 of their
friends delightfully Thursday evening
of last week with a trip to Anna Maria
Key. The parties left Corwins dock at 7
o'clock on the speedy launch, Echo,
and after a splendid run of a little more
than an hour, arrived at the Key where
they disembarked and devoted their at-
tention to a most satisfying supper,
supplemented with glorious moonlight,
refreshing breezes and beautiful ex-
panses of sea and shore.
Sept. 3: More property changed
hands in the last 60 days than ever before.
With the new railroad to the east of us, the
Mana Vista Hotel to open in January and
a new hard road to Sarasota planned
along the bay, we anticipate another good
season this winter.

Next: Bertha Hall
remembers the good
old days

Matt McMillan Breaks Unwritten Rule

By Challenging Incumbent Judge


Because he is deeply disturbed that
our justice system is not doing all it
can to make our communities safe,
Matt McMillan has chosen to run for
County Court Judge. He is breaking
the "unwritten rule" amongst judges
and lawyers that elected incumbent
judges are not to be challenged. Matt
McMillan has been pressured and
threatened by the powers-that-be to
drop out of this race and has been
told to stop calling attention to the
problems in our court system, but he
is not caving in to such tactics.
Matt McMillan believes that elections
keep our judges accountable. No
elected official, including his opponent,
should assume he has his job for life.
Matt McMillan has been involved in
the criminal justice system for 14 years
as a police officer, an assistant state
attorney, a former defense attorney
and as a co-founder of a violence
intervention program. Over the course
of his career, it has become more and
more evident that there must be serious
changes in the way we treat victims
and punish offenders. Matt McMillan
wants to be part of those changes, and
he feels that his background uniquely
qualifies him to bring about those
changes.
The revolving door that puts repeat
offenders back on our streets time after
time must be closed and locked. The
meaningless slaps on the wrist that
characterize the punishment of criminals
today is a source of scorn to that element
of our society because justice is not


taken seriously. As a judge, Matt
McMillan's objective will be not only to
punish offenders appropriately, but
also force them to complete effective
treatment programs that make it less
likely that they will return through that
revolving door.
As a domestic violence and child
advocate, Matt McMillan has seen far
too many light sentences imposed on
those who bloody their spouses and
children. Batterers must be forced to
complete effective treatment programs
in addition to their punishment.
As an addiction specialist and a citizen
who drives on our roadways, it frightens
Matt McMillan that drunk drivers are
routinely handed their "business
purposes" license without any effort to
ensure abstinence from alcohol or
mandatory treatment. As a result,
drunk driving fatalities have risen 260
percent in the past five years ii Manatee
County alone.
As a victim's rights advocate, Matt
McMillan has seen far too many criminals
walk away after failing to make restitu-
tion to a crime victim when ordered to
do so as a condition of probation.
Clerk's Office records open to the public
indicate that criminals owe Manatee
County over $22 million in uncollected
fines, court costs and restitution.. As a
judge, Matt McMillan will put an end
to such practices in his courtroom.
If a judge believes he has his job for
life, he has no incentive to be innovative
or tough. Matt McMillan believes it is
time to break the unwritten rule!

Ruth Ellen Elliott
Ruth Ellen Elliott, 74, of Anna Maria, died Aug.
12, in St. John's Hospital, Maplewood, Minn., while
visiting her son, John Elliott, for a family reunion.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, Sept. 12,
at 2 p.m. at Roser Memorial Community Church, 512
Pine Ave., Anna Maria, with the Rev. Mike Smith of-
ficiating.
Mrs. Elliott operated a picture framing shop in
Rockford, Ill., before moving to Anna Maria Island


in 1976. She served as a city commissioner in Anna
Maria from 1989-90, and was made deputy mayor at
the end of 1989 following
Mayor Bill Schmitz's res-
ignation. She remained
vice mayor until the Febru-
ary election.
She was a member of
the Artists Guild of Anna
Maria Island, and was made
a lifetime member of the
Anna Maria Island Histori-
cal Society after designing
Elliott the winning logo for the
Historical Society in 1991.
Mrs. Elliott's home in Anna Maria was historically
significant, having been the original home of the Roser
family and later Roser Church's rectory. It was sold by
the church to Elliott.
She was born in Lake Zurich, Ill., in 1924. Her
father, Emil Miller, was owner of the Miller Oil Co. in
Barrington, Ill. She graduated from the University of
Illinois in 1946 with a degree in fine arts.
Burial will be in Rockford's Marsh Cemetery fol-
lowing cremation in Minneapolis. Because Mrs. Elliott
was an avid animal lover, her family suggests dona-

Survivors include two sons; John Lewis Elliott and
Steven Edward Elliott of Sarasota; two grandchildren,
Carrie Elliott, of Shoreview, Minn., and Joshua Elliott,
of Maplewood, Minn.

Anna Maria Elementary open house successful


Oodles of parents and children attended last
Wednesday's Open House at Anna Maria Elementary
School despite the backdrop of rainy weather.
The pitter-patter of rain drops couldn't drown out
the children's laughter and chatter. Many were excited
about returning to school on Monday. Parents had an
opportunity to meet with their children's teachers be-
fore the first day of school.
Principal Jim Kronus said.this was the first time the
school held an open house before the start of the school
year. According to Kronus, open house is traditionally
held in the auditorium after the start of the school year.
But because everyone was there at the same time,
teachers weren't able to spend much one-on-one time
speaking with parents. "I think this is working out re-
ally well," he said.
This year's open house was spread out from 3 to 6
p.m. Second-grade teacher Toni Lashway said half of

and grade. The packages included everything the students
would need for the year. "It was a fabulous idea," she said.
Bob and Marsha Marlow said they were pleased
with this year's open house. They have four children
and three of them, Brick, Clay and Emma, are enrolled
at Anna Maria Elementary School. The Marlows said
having an open house before the start of the school year
gives the kids a chance to get acquainted with their
classroom and teacher and helps lessen some of the
anxiety they may have been feeling.
All the Marlow children were toting home school
supplies bought at the PTO's sale.
The Marlows said they appreciated the PTO sell-
ing school supplies. Purchasing supplies for four chil-
dren can be a real chore and they were glad to be spared
the trouble, they said.

The Cracker has the heart and soul of a poet or at
least he likes to think so.
He lost a dear friend last Christmas. Her very lov-
ing and thoughtful daughter sent the Cracker a packet
of yesteryears mementos of those Great Depression
years when her mother and he were growing up in
Pierce, Polk County, Fla.
Pierce was a small company-owned, phosphate-
mining town and exists today only in the memories of
the wonderful folks who once lived there our own
Camelot.
Among the treasured items was a carefully pre-
served invitation to the Crackers's 12th birthday party,
addressed to "Lady Jean Murray" from "Sir Gilbert,"
to be held on Aug. 11, 1936.
You see, this was no drop-the-handkerchief, open-
the-presents, blow-out-the-candles, eat-cake-and-ice
cream and be-home-by-five affair, but a real boy and
girl party held in the twilight hours.

The Cracker's mom thought is was high time to
teach her roughneck young'un a little etiquette and a
few social graces.
She therefore put together this wonderful medieval
"knights of the Round Table" party. It was a humdinger
with everyone in costume. It changed the Cracker's
perspective on many things particularly girls.
Lady Jean was a very vivacious young lady with
large and limpid eyes that love ballads are written
about. One that quickly comes to mind is "Jeepers
Creepers, Where'd You Get Those Peepers."

And, some called her "Banjo Eyes."
In 1938 at the completion of her ninth grade in
school, Jean and her family moved to Lakeland, Fla.
The Cracker's world was shattered because he wor-
shipped the ground she tread upon.
At the time of her departure, Jean passed around
her little autograph book, very popular at the time, for
her classmates and friends to record their farewell
messages and good wishes.
All of the messages were heartfelt but, many were
repetitive and completely lacking in originality such as:
Dear Jean,
First comes love, then comes marriage.
Then comes Jean with a baby carriage.
or,
When you are married and patching britches,
Remember me between your stitches.
or,
They kiss beneath the mistletoe,
They kiss beneath the rose,
But the proper place to kiss you
Is just beneath the nose.
and so on.
The Cracker's message had to be more meaning-
ful, more profound something that would stand the
test of time to this very day.
He waxed rhapsodically and penned:
Dear Jean,
My love for you will always flow
Like water down a potato row.

The week

By Kevin P. Cassidy


IFC gives up late goal,
ties 3-3
Island Football Club played another stellar offen-
sive game as far as its ability to control the soccer ball
and spread it around the field but continued to have
trouble putting the ball into the back of the netmiss-
ing several great scoring chances.
Some blame, or credit depending on your point of
view, can be placed on opposing International goalie
Manual Rodriguez, who came up with some outstand-
ing saves, and sweeper Brooklyn Garger, who was a
thorn in the IFC offense all game long.
Scoring for IFC were Lance Bieker, Tim Bugna
and Ken Bowers, while Brett McIntosh won the
Foster's man-of-the-match for outstanding play on both
sides of the ball. B.J. Tarwoe and Jason Lykins scored
goals for International.
International got on the scoreboard first when Jeff

Lonzo outstanding on defense until leaving with an
injury passed the ball back to Shawn Dibble in goal.
Dibble came off his line to trap the ball but it took a bad
bounce and slid underneath his boot and into the goal
for a 1-0 lead 17 minutes into the match.
IFC notched the tying goal three minutes later
when Jeff Nelson carried the ball up the left wing be-
fore sending a cross into the penalty area. Bieker chal-
lenged for the cross and redirected the ball off his chest

and wide and drew jeering whistles from the crowd.
Bieker quickly atoned for his gaffe in the 31st
minute when he finished a rebound off the goalie for
a 2-1 lead. The play started in the IFC defensive end
when McIntosh received the ball from Dibble in goal.
McIntosh carried the ball before knocking it up the
right sideline to Solano.
Solano quickly sent the ball inside to Gomez, who
dribbled forward through the midfield before sending
it to Bugna, stationed at the top of the box. Bugna held
the ball, then passed it outside to Bowers on right wing.
Bowers fired on goal, which Rodriguez saved, but the
ball deflected out to Bieker who finished the play to
- make the score 2-1 heading into halftime.
IFC came out a bit flat early in the second half with
International taking several scoring chances early on.
The first chance came when Lykins found Drummond
with a through ball, leaving him with just IFC sweeper
Lonzo to beat. Lonzo held his position, waiting for
Drummond to make his move. Drummond tried to push


it around Lonzo, but the IFC sweeper responded with
a nice slide tackle to clear the ball away, resulting in a
free kick which went wide of the goal.
Five minutes later, Drummond again figured in a
scoring chance when he found Tarwoe on the right
edge of the penalty box. Tarwoe cut inside and ripped
a shot with the outside of his foot but it went wide right.
International again was threatening the IFC de-
fense when Tony Louis-Charles committed a foul at the
35-yard line, giving International a free kick. Lykins
took the shot but IFC goalie Dibble was there to tip the
ball over the cross bar to preserve the slim lead.
IFC finally got its passing game going again when
Gomez found Bugna with a through ball, but Gargar
cleared the ball over the end line, giving IFC a corner kick.
Bugna took the kick, which deflected off Gomez to
Mcintosh at the right edge of the penalty box. McIntosh
fired on goal but his shot deflected off the cross bar to
Bugna. whose follow-up shot went wide.
The 78th minute produced a great steal by Louis-
Charles. who then carried the ball up the middle before
passing to Bugna. Bugna carried the ball in on

Rodriguez in goal but Bugna's shot was tipped away
by the International goalie, giving IFC a corner kick.
Bowers took the corner kick and sent the ball
across the goal mouth where Gomez emphatically
headed it to the far post but Gargar leaped up to head
the ball away to keep the score 2-1.
The 2-1 lead was erased minutes later when
Tarwoe notched the equalizer for International from the
top of the box with a seeing-eye shot that somehow
found the back of the net to tie the score at 2-2.
IFC retook the lead in the 80th minute when some
nice passing between McIntosh, Gomez and Nelson
resulted in Nelson finding Bowers at the top of the box.
Bowers cut inside of the defender and fired a low shot
on goal that slid underneath the goalie's hands for a 3-
2 lead.
Five minutes later, Gargar stole the ball at midfield
and dribbled up the middle where he passed it to Lykins
at the 18-yard line. Lykins received the ball with his
back to the goal, turned, maneuvered past Solano and

Summer showers bring baywide headaches


Those wonderful afternoon thunderstorms that
cause our shrubs and plants to burst with life can wreak
havoc and bring death to the bays.
Torrents of water rush into bays and the Gulf of
Mexico during and after storms. The water causes radi-
cal changes in the chemical makeup of nearshore wa-
ters, shocking plants and slow-moving marine critters
that can't get out of the floodwaters' path.
And speaking of chemicals, runoff carries with it
an incredible amount of gunk from land that can
strangle or kill marine life.
There's even a problem with rain itself as it falls
from the sky into the saltwater.
Scientists have said floodwater is the greatest en-
vironmental threat to the bays, thanks mostly to devel-
opment and human practices.
The threat is called stormwater runoff.

What's the problem?
Stormwater runoff is the freshwater pulse of water
that flows from land into nearshore waters of Anna
Maria Sound, Sarasota Bay, Tampa Bay and the Gulf.
The water carries with it sediment dirt from land
that can cloud the saltwater and block light from reach-
ing seagrasses, stifling marine life.
A more insidious problem lies with chemicals the
runoff carries. Roads and lawns are the worst culprits
of the chemical infusion.
Roads tend to accumulate emissions from the ve-
hicles that travel upon them. Leaking brake, power
steering or coolant fluids are caught in the stormwater
runoff and enter nearshore waters. Vehicle exhaust

systems spew out lead which also enters the waters.
Another problem with pollutants within
stormwater runoff comes from our lawns. The fertiliz-
ers we use to keep the grass bright green is mostly
made up of phosphorus and nitrogen, which is great for
land plants. Too great, in fact, because our tendency to
over-fertilize means all that nitrogen-rich stuff ends up
in the bays. It doesn't fertilize the seagrasses, though,
but prompts algae to bloom, which suck up all avail-
able oxygen and spur fish kills and more scagrass bed
die-offs.
Scientists have also begun a study of "atmospheric
deposition" rain and the effects of rain falling
directly onto the bays. When you look at the smog
hovering over Tampa and St. Petersburg before a
shower, and the clear skies afterwards, it doesn't take
a meteorologist to figure out that rain has driven that
yuck to the ground and into the water.

Some numbers to ponder
The Sarasota Bay National Estuary Program has
conducted a study on what scientists call "pollutant
loadings" of the area. Studied were phosphorus, nitro-
gen, lead and zinc.
Anna Maria Island consists of 919 acres. Annual
metal runoff from the Island into the nearshore waters
is estimated at:
1,740 pounds of phosphorus,
8,660 pounds of nitrogen.
450 pounds of lead, and
360 pounds of zinc.'
Zine is part of the reason for the atmospheric depo-
sition study, since zinc seems to come directly from
rainfall, not runoff. Scientists have speculated that gal-
vanized vents those stubby pipes that stick out of
your roof above bathrooms and kitchens cause the
metal to get in the air and then into the water after it
rains.
Although those numbers appear high, remember
that the waters around Anna Maria Island are ranked as
within the best in the bay systems.
But for some really alarming statistics, here's the
total metal flow into Sarasota Bay from the tip of the

Island to Venice:
245,770 pounds of phosphorus,
1,271,210 pounds of nitrogen,
33,940 pounds of lead, and
91,480 pounds of zinc.
A quick factoid, by the way those nitrogen fig-
ures work out to about two pounds of the stuff dumped
in the bay per person per year in the Manatee-Sarasota
County area.

What to do?
Historically, the bay was lined with mangroves,
salt marshes and other vegetation. There weren't any
polluting cars or lushly fertilized lawns and there
weren't any problems with stormwater runoff that the
natural system couldn't absorb.
When development came to Southwest Florida,
things changed. Mangroves were chopped down to
provide waterfront views, salt marshes were filled to
make way for home construction, and landscape plants
replaced native, no-need-to-fertilize shrubs.
A scientist told me years ago that he thought there
could be a dramatic change in chemical and metal flow
in the bays if waterfront homeowners would just plant
a narrow strip of native plants along their shore. The
natives would suck up the chemicals before they en-
tered the bays, he theorized, and drop total nitrogen and
phosphorus levels.
It's worth a try.
The Southwest Florida Water Management District
also stepped in a few years ago and required new de-
velopment to keep the first inch of stormwater runoff
on the property before allowing it to flow into the bays
or Gulf. Retention ponds, or detention ponds as the case
may be, are now required for most new development,
be it commercial or multi-family residential.
I remember visiting a friend a few years ago who'd
just moved into a new condo. After getting the tour of
his new place, he proudly pointed through his living
room windows to his "lake view" that only cost him an
extra $3,000.
VWhen I explained that his "lake" was a detention
pond, and told him what it was. the glow of his new
place was noticeably dimmed.
Funny. I haven't heard from him since. Oops.

Sandscript factoid
Florida has lost more than 10 million acres 46
percent of its wetlands in the past two centuries. It
could be worse: California lost 91 percent of its origi-
nal wetlands in the same period of time. Losses are
attributed to land alteration for agricultural uses and
development.

Snook season starts Tuesday; predictions good


By Capt. Mike Heistand
Snook season starts at 12:01 a.m. next Tuesday,
Sept. 1, and if early indications prove accurate it
should be a good year for linesiders. The fish being
caught and released now are of legal size, meaning
they'll get even bigger as the season starts and con-
tinues.
Remember there is a two-fish-per-day bag limit
on snook, with a 24-inch minimum length, although
one fish may be more than 34 inches long. Also re-
member you need a snook fishing stamp to keep any
linesiders.
Other action in the bays include mangrove snap-
per, redfish and trout. Offshore, grouper and mack-
erel are the best bets.
Fishers at the Rod and Reel Pier report lots of
mackerel, snapper and shark at night are being
caught.
Anglers at the Anna Maria. City Pier are reel-
ing in mackerel, keeper-sized redfish, catch-and-re-
lease snook and black drum.
Annie's Bait & Tackle said that Capt. Zack on
the Dee Jay II said inshore action has exploded in
the past week with the change in weather. Best bets
are reds to 35 inches, trout to 22 inches in about five
feet of water, and mangrove snapper are thick near
any inshore structure. Other action includes Spanish
mackerel and small gag grouper. Tarpon are still
hanging around, and cobia are starting to show up
early. Capt. Zack said he got spooked one day last
week with a 40-pound cobia that he caught on eight-
pound-test line in four feet of water. Wow!
Capt. Mike Card on the Flat-out Fun said he's
been getting reds, catch-and-release snook and trout
in south Tampa Bay. In middle Sarasota Bay, he's
getting a mixed bag of reds, jacks, snook and lady-
fish off Fisher Point.
Capt. Dave Pinkham on the Legend said a Lake-
land man chartered his boat one day last week and
came into a school of big Spanish mackerel eight
miles out.
Capt. Thom Smith at Angler's Repair said red-
fish, catch-and-release snook, flounder and snapper
are coming on every day.
Capt. Jason Henzell and Capt. Kurt Morrison on
the Neva-Miss said they've been getting into red
grouper up to 27 pounds, mangrove snapper up to

CAPT


Fishin' and reading'
While fishing off the Marquesa Islands, George D'angelo, right, caught a 25-pound turbot or "ocean tally"
while Capt. Keith Barnett catches up on Island news.


four pounds, yellowtail at three pounds and lane
snapper to two pounds, all is about 70 feet of water
22 miles out. Bait of choice is cut bait or shrimp.
Capt. Rick Gross said he's finding legal-sized
grouper within five miles of shore plus lots of man-
grove snapper, a few mackerel and reds in the bays.
On my boat Magic we're getting into lots of 16-
inch snapper, limit catches of redfish on every trip
and a few trout on the seagrass flats. In the Gulf,
mackerel are biting.
Capt. Tom Chaya reports good catches of
Spanish mackerel, snapper and cobia.

legal-sized linesiders being caught and released on
the flats. Also, there are lots of mangrove snapper
and pompano near the Intracoastal Waterway.
