Hurricane Georges: 'The storm that wasn't'


By Paul Roat
Anna Maria Island was spared the full punch of Hur-
ricane Georges, but the storm's passing still gave a back-
hand slap to streets and beaches last Friday and Saturday.
A three-foot storm surge flooded low-lying streets
throughout the Island, prompting evacuation of two mo-
bile home parks and closing Gulf Drive in the 2200 block
of Bradenton Beach Saturday afternoon and into the night.
Saturday's evacuation of the Sandpiper and Pines
trailer parks was the second time in two days residents
were asked to leave their homes. A mandatory evacu-
ation of the entire Island went into effect at 6 a.m. Fri-
day. Access to the Island was prohibited at 2 p.m. that
day, and the Island resembled a ghost town by after-
noon. Emergency management officials estimated
more than 60 percent of Islanders heeded the order and
left their homes and businesses.
In Bradenton Beach, with a population of 1,654,
only 56 people chose to stay in the city during Hurri-
cane Georges, according to Bradenton Beach Police
Sgt. John Cosby.
The projected path of the storm Friday morning
called for hurricane force winds on Anna Maria Island
in excess of 74 mph to strike by nightfall, with a storm
surge of up to six feet. But Hurricane Georges became
the storm that wasn't, veering more than 250 miles to
the west. No real damage was reported in any of the
three Island cities as a result of Hurricane Georges.
Evacuees were allowed to return to their homes


and businesses at 6 a.m. Saturday.
Despite the inconvenience. Islanders were gener-
ally thankful the storm bypassed Anna Maria.
In fact, the biggest problem the Island faced dur-
ing Hurricane Georges was a scarcity of sandbags -
a small price to pay in comparison to the plight in the
Florida Panhandle, Biloxi, Miss., and New Orleans in
the path of the deadly storm.

Wednesday: Day 1
Preparation for Hurricane Georges began on Anna
Maria Wednesday. With public eyes glued to the
weather forecasts on TV. Island elected officials, po-
lice, firefighters and others viewed models from the
National Hurricane Center of the projected storm track
to Southwest Florida. Members of the Island Emer-
gency Operations Center met at 10 a.m. and discussed
the potential for evacuating the Island.
Files were packed and loaded into trucks in
Bradenton Beach, and Holmes Beach and Anna Maria
began packing.

Thursday: Evacuation warned
Thursday morning dawned bright, sunny and with
Georges still heading toward Florida. Emergency man-
agers met several times in the morning and, in a 9 a.nm.
meeting with IEOC, decided to issue an evacuation
order for 3 p.m. County commissioners concurred, and
Anna Maria-West Side Fire Chief Andy Price said


Spot renourishment


possible for Anna Maria


By Susan K. Kesselring
Islander Reporter
Because a large percentage of Gulffront property
owners in the City of Anna Maria did not respond to a re-
quest from Manatee County for easements on their prop-
erty, it is likely spot beach renourishment will take place.
The Island-wide beach renourishment project is
slated for the year 2002 and is expected to cost $10
million. Residents of Anna Maria voted in a referen-
dum to be included in the project.
Jack Gorzeman, Manatee County's environmental
manager, sent the city a survey that reveals 78 property


owners are included in the easement request. A letter
was sent to each of those owners in April detailing the
project. Since then, a third and final notice was sent.
As of Aug. 21, there are 22 owners who signed the
easement. Thirteen owners are opposed and 40 have
not responded. Of the remaining few property owners,
letters were returned.
The easements are needed to allow sand to be
pumped onto residents' properties to provide for a
smooth transition from private property to the re-

more than 1,000 telephone calls poured into IEOC of-
fices from concerned residents.
Islanders heeded the then-notice of impending
evacuation orders, and a steady stream of traffic began
the exodus from the Island.
Emergency managers met with Island elected of-
ficials at midday to apprise them of the state of affairs.
Telephone lines from the three city halls to the
IEOC were activated by mid-afternoon, and elected
officials manned the phones.
However, the storm's stall over Cuba prompted a
change in the evacuation orders: Price said the decision
to call for residents and visitors to leave the Island
would be made once the storm track was projected at
the 5 a.m. weather advisory Friday morning.
The IEOC was partially deactivated, and everyone
went home to finish packing or left the Island.

Friday: 'E' Day -
At 6 a.m. Friday, a mandatory evacuation of resi-
dents from Anna Maria Island was ordered, the first
such order since Hurricane Elena in 1985.
But a traffic jam of people leaving the Island didn't
happen. People were orderly in their departure and
prompt in their decision to leave. In fact, many folks
had already left the Island by Friday morning.
Access to the Island was restricted to visitors and
residents at noon, and by 2 p.m. no one was allowed

THE BEST NEWS ON ANNA MARIA ISLAND

onto Anna Maria.
Police armed with bullhorns went street by street
to advise those few who were not aware of the impend-
ing threat of high winds and floodwater that departure
had been ordered. In Bradenton Beach, police went
door to door to inform residents.
But Georges had a mind of his own, and his pro-
jected track throughout the day was more westerly than
earlier plots. By midafternoon it was determined that
the full brunt of Georges would miss the Island, al-
though strong gusts of wind, a storm surge and high
surf were still expected.
The IEOC scaled back, and emergency managers
sat back to wait and see what would happen. By 4 p.m.,.
the IEOC had disbanded and nearly all city officials,
had retired to their Island homes.

Saturday: all clear but wait!
Overnight, it became clear that Georges would
pass the Island by several hundred miles. At 6 a.m., an
"all clear" order was issued, and residents were allowed
to return to home. Again, the traffic was orderly and
calm with no real problems or traffic jams.
Then came the only real brush with Georges a
storm surge coinciding with a 5:14 p.m. high tide
pushed water and sand across the beach and onto the
road in the 2200 block of Gulf Drive in Bradenton
Beach. The floodwaters poured across yards, swamped
garages and a few homes and resulted in yards and
yards of sand being pushed onto the highway.
Police closed the road at about 4 p.m. and closed the
Cortez Bridge, Longboat Pass Bridge and Gulf Drive to
traffic except for residents of Bradenton Beach until the
water receded and the road could be cleared of sand.
Floodwater also threatened the Sandpiper and
Pines trailer parks in the city, causing residents to again
pack their bags and leave their mobile homes. An
evacuation center was opened on the mainland, but
later closed when no Islanders appeared to use the fa-
cility, having opted to stay with friends or relatives.
A 3 a.m. storm surge and flooding did not material-
ize as anticipated with that high tide. It was finally over.

The biggest problem
A critique of the actions before, during and after
Hurricane Georges will be held this week by emer-
gency managers. Fire Chief Price said overall he was
very pleased with how things went last week.
"Overall, it went very well," he said. "The people
left, it was very controlled and there was not as much
confusion or traffic as we expected. Everyone left, and
that was the important thing."
In fact, the only real problem that presented itself
during Georges' long-range visit to the Island was the
lack of sandbags. "We were unprepared," Price readily
admitted as to the lack of the bags.
"We had no idea of the number of bags that would
be necessary. At one point, we had a 20-yard truck
deliver sand, and it was gone in a half hour."
Price said 40,000 to 50,000 sandbags were deliv-
ered and picked up countywide.
If future storms would only cause sandbag blues.

Beach project still prompts questions in Anna Maria

stored beach.
The City of Anna Maria was also sent an easement
request for property it owns from White Street to Mag-
nolia Avenue. At the Sept. 8 regular work session,
Mayor Chuck Shumard asked the commission for its
permission to sign off on the easement.
Shumard's request sparked a series of questions
and comments from residents and commissioners about
beach easements.
Gulffront property owner Judy Adams is con-
cerned about the line that will be drawn in the sand,
specifically the percentage of property owners will re-
linquish for establishment of an easement. She said she
attended a previous city meeting where officials from
Manatee County were present and they were unsure of
the line's exact position.
Shumard said that information was included in let-
ters sent to property owners.
Adams said information in the letter was vague.
She said property owners couldn't be expected to give
their support for an easement if the county couldn't be


more specific.
Commissioner Robert McElheny is concerned
about residents who have not responded to the beach
casement request and said their silence is due to a lack
of good information on the project.
McElheny said he has.asked Gorzeman to come to
city hall again and give another presentation in hopes
that it would clarify some issues.
Beach restoration protects property from storms
and erosion, he said, and "we would be remiss not to
protect our homeowners."
McElheny also said he would contact all those that
did not respond to ask them why, and to ask if he can
help them. If he can't answer their questions, he'll di-
rect them to the people who can help them, he added.
The issue of how far out in the Gulf sand will be
dredged up is another factor officials weren't clear
about, Adams said.
Sand bars help keel) the water shallow and break the
energy of the waves. In Bradenton Beach dredging was
close to shore and what resulted was a big hole. Deeper
water results in bigger waves, Adams said.
This big hole was the reason roads flooded in


Bradenton Beach during a storm spurred by Hurricane
Earl, she said.
Commissioner Doug Wolfe had a problem with
language in the easement document, specifically with
the word "assignable" in an opening sentence: "This is
a perpetual and assignable easement and right of way."
He said this statement could be a license for the county
to create a public beach like Coquina on Bradenton
Beach.
He said the difference between Anna Maria and its
neighboring cities is that much of their property is com-
mercial, not private.
Wolfe said if the city gives the county the beaches,
then it's "theirs to do whatever they see fit, and as a
commission, we try desperately to protect the citizens
of Anna Maria."
McElheny questioned whether wording of the
document for easement could be modified. He com-
pared the current casement request to similar docu-
ments for Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach before
the 1993 Anna Maria restoration project.
Mayor Shumard said he would ask Gorzeman to
return and address concerns about the project.

Donations dominate Holmes Beach budget


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Once again the final budget hearing was dominated
by discussion of donations last week in Holmes Beach.
Holmes Beach city commissioners heard a plea
from Ed Chiles, chairman of START (Solutions to
Avoid Red Tide), to restore their original donation to
the group. At the first budget hearing commissioners
transferred $1,500 of the $5,000 START donation to
the Anna Maria Island Turtle Watch.
"The group was formed in 1996 after a red tide that
lasted 11 months and 11 days," Chiles explained. "We
all started talking about what was being done about red
tide. We were concerned that we saw more of it, it
lasted longer and it has a tremendous effect on our
quality of life, our business and our ability to enjoy the
beautiful Island that we all live on."
He said they learned that research was in progress
but none was being done on control and mitigation,
which became the group's focus. Within two years, the
group has been successful in getting considerable fed-
eral, state, private and local funds for studies on miti-
gation and control of red tide. The group is also work-
ing on several mitigation projects including a skimmer-
boom project.
"When we have the next red tide outbreak, we have
a group ready to bring down a boat with a big boom and
barges," Chiles said. "We will do a pilot project to see
if we can have an effect on cleaning the tide line when
the red tide comes in."
Chiles noted that Holmes Beach was instrumental
in helping get the group get started with its $5,000


donation last year.
"1 want to thank you for any help that you give us
this year, and I want to ask you to look at the $5,000
that we requested," Chiles said. "The next time we have
a red tide outbreak and somebody asks what you are
doing about it, you can point to these studies and
projects. A lot of that is a direct result of START's
efforts to lobby for money."
"When we voted to take money from red tide and
give it to the turtles, I didn't know that much about
START." Commissioner Roger Lutz said. "I think
what they are doing is important. The question is where
do we take the money from?"
Commissioner Pat Geyer asked how much other
cities donate to START.
Chiles said Anna Maria is donating nothing,
Bradenton Beach is still considering the request,
Longboat Key originally donated $25,000 and is donat-
ing $5,000 this year and Clearwater is donating $5,000.
"We are continuing to try and broaden the partici-
pation of island communities along the coast because
we think it's something that is very important to all of
us," Chiles noted.
Mayor Carol Whitmore suggested taking the
$1,500 out of the contingency fund. The commission
voted to do so.
Lutz noted that the commission has discussed its
$44,000 in donations more than anything else in the
budget and said, "That's way out of whack and we need
to change the way we do donations."
The only other line item that differed from the bud-
get presented at the first public hearing was an increase in


the paving budget of $60,000. The increase was for pav-
ing that was not completed in the 1997-98 fiscal year.
The millage rate of 2.25 is the same as the previ-
ous year.
The total budget of $5,049,917 is an increase in
$256,649 over last year's budget of $4,793,268.
Revenues include state sources, $860,000; local
sources, $1,838,030; and carryovers and reserves,
$2,351,887.
Expenditures include mayor and commission,
$118,106; general government, $777,530; police depart-
ment, $1,013,668; public works, $1,094,240; debt service
(new city hall), $151,344; mitigation grant (Local Mitiga-
tion Strategy), $30,000; dredging grant, $250,000
($50,000 each from Anna Maria and Holmes Beach and
$150,000 in grant funds); Hagen Trust Fund, $44,887; and
carryovers and reserves, $1,570.142.

... and same holds true in Anna Maria, too


By Susan K. Kesselring
Islander Reporter
Anna Maria's budget was approved by a vote of
four to one by the city commission for fiscal year
1998-99 with no last-minute changes, though the
final hearing drew many supporters of Anna Maria
Elementary School's World of Work program, who
came to ask the city for a donation.
At the start of the budget process, Don Shroeder,
Chamber of Commerce member and spokesperson for
WOW, requested a one-time donation of $7,000 from
each Island city to get a computer-based program off
the ground. WOW will benefit school children and
adults in the community.
Anna Maria's proposed budget included a line-
item donation of $3,000 to WOW, but Shroeder asked
the commission to reconsider donating $7,000, or the
$5,500 that it would cost to get one computer work sta-
tion up and running.
Many spoke to the commission on behalf of the
program including Principal Jim Kronus, teacher Kathy
Granstad and volunteers and parents.
Commissioner George McKay sought a way to
accommodate their request. He suggested taking
$4,000 out of the city's trust fund and giving WOW
$7,000.
Commissioner Robert McElheny objected, saying
the purpose of the fund was for possible land acquisi-
tion and that he did not feel comfortable taking the trust
money and diverting it to something else.
He said, "I think we made a commitment when we
raised the millage rate to 2.0 to take that and make it a
debt service for the purchase of land."
Appearing before the commission a second time,
representative Irene Flinn from the Island's Turtle
Watch asked for a $1,500 donation for the non-profit
organization. Her request was denied.
In the end, the commission voted four in favor
of the budget with Vice Mayor Doug Wolfe op-
posed, stating he could not in good conscience vote
yea because of the $3,000 allotted for WOW. He
said city government is not a "philanthropic organi-
zation."


With no exceptions made to the proposed budget,
the commission approved the $1,104,970 budget for
the fiscal year beginning Oct. 1, 1998, which contains
the following highlight (except where noted, the figures
are the same as last year's budget):
Revenue from ad valorem taxes, $511,041, up
from last year's 380,242.
Revenue from franchise fees, 110,173.
Revenue from licenses and permits, $101,000.
Revenue from state monies, $141,229.
Revenue from county shared monies, $205,287.
Expenses for salaries and related expenses,
$282,692, up from last year's $238,078. General gov-
ernment expenses, $140,126, up from last year's
$131,504.
Construction, maintenance and improvements,
$183,200, up from $140,200.
Public safety, $323,749, down from $332,227.
Capital improvements, $341,500, up from
$169,000.
Donations, $18,000. up from $16,000, including
$15,000 to Anna Maria Island Community Center and
$3,000 to World of Work.
The largest increase in expenses came under capi-
tal improvements and includes a $180,000 storm wa-
ter management project and $60.000 for road paving.


The Anna Maria Island Chamber of Com-
merce will stage a golf tournament Saturday, Oct.
10, with an 11 a.m. tee time.
The tournament will be a four-person best ball
scramble with dinner and raffle to follow. Trophies
will be awarded for first-, second- and third-place
teams, along with a prize for the longest drive.
Entry is limited to 128 golfers over 16 years of


The largest increase in revenue was from the rais-
ing of property taxes. The commission increased the
village rate from 1.70 to 2.0.
A mill is $1 for every $1,000 of assessed property,
less homestead exemption, if applicable. This revenue
helped to offset some of the expense of capital im-
provements and some was earmarked for property ac-
quisition.
The budget had a shortfall of $219,027 and that
money was transferred from reserves to offset the rev-
enue and expense sides.
With respect to increases in expense, an objection
to the increase of $44,614 over last year's budget for
salaries and related expenses was made by resident
Diane Canniff.
Canniff said the raises given to personnel over the
past three years have been inflationary.
Mayor Chuck Shumard said the increases are jus-
tified because three years ago the city was understaffed
and personnel were underpaid.
McElheny, who throughout the entire budget pro-
cess has recommended no more than 3.5 percent for
personnel increases, said he feels comfortable about the
raises that were given and cited the example of better
drainage for the city streets due to the hard work of the
public works personnel.

Stay, leave;

safe, statistic?
"Did you leave?"
"Sure did," was the answer, over and over, in the
wake of last week's near miss of Hurricane Georges.
Imagine if you will, 25-foot-high waves, 172
mph wind gusts and 60 inches of rain experienced in
Biloxi, Miss.
Now project that picture onto the beaches of
Anna Maria Island in your mind. Imagine your fa-
vorite stretch of beach and everything from Gulf to
bay inundated by water and wind.
It's not hard to imagine that there would be very
little left standing on our slice of paradise after such
a devasting storm. A quick spin through TV chan-
nels reveals Georges' wrath since being named a
tropical storm on Sept. 15.
We are lucky, lucky, lucky. And far more fortu-
nate than those in Key West, the Caribbean and on
the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico.
On Thursday afternoon, when forecasters were
predicting Georges would pass within 50 miles of
our shore, we feared the worst.
A Doppler radar view of the storm was showing
150 miles of torrential rain on the southeast side of
the hurricane's eye, and traveling at 12-15 mph, that
translated to 10 solid hours of rain. A dire situation
for flood-prone Anna Maria Island.
There goes the imagination again.
You may be sorry now for all the inconvenience
and preparation that departure entailed, but it was a
good lesson for the next time one we haven't had
since 1985.
So feel free to grumble but, as a couple of police
officers put it, it's better than someone's next of kin
asking why an evacuation order wasn't issued.
It's hard to estimate just how many folks left the
Island. Evacuation shelter numbers don't reveal the
hundreds of Islanders who stayed with friends on the
mainland, or visitors who decided to see what
Florida's other coast was like.
A drive through the Island Friday afternoon re-
vealed a ghost town where there had been a thriving
beachfront resort community the day before.
Bradenton Beach says only 56 residents re-
mained at home to tough it out during the storm that
wasn't.
Of course, in the event Georges' path led here,
that's 56 people too many.
Thankfully, the gods cooperated. And so did Is-
landers.

i YOI *- P


'Tear it down!'
I suppose that when you are "mad as hell." as you
describe your current condition in the Sept. 23 editorial,
you feel justified to say whatever your editorial license
allows in your effort to get others to share that condition.
I have no problem with your efforts today or with
those of anyone else holding and expressing an opin-
ion that differs from mine. In fact, I have always encour-
aged such expression in order to be certain that I have
heard as many different ideas as possible before making
any decisions. That's the way I conduct my private life as
well as my role as city commissioner. I also make it a point
to have others hear how I feel.
And now that I've read your opinion about mine, I
have a couple [more] of mine to share with yours.
First of all, I regret that "mad as hell" moved you to
refer to my "requests" to the Community Center for some
details of their plans for the old city hall as "demands."
They were simply asked to tell the commission what they
wanted to do with the old city hall and how they planned
to do it, if we agreed to leave it for them.
I don't recall holding up any "hoops" or witnessing
anybody jumping through any. The Center folks did an-
swer all our questions and at the end of the last work ses-
sion on the subject, the commission's 4-to-I consensus
was the same as commissions before it: Tear it down. And,
without any "whining" that widely resembled yours today.
This city commission has voted a budget that includes
more than $40,000 of donations of Holmes Beach taxpay-
ers' money. More than three-quarters of those donations
will go to Island children more than 60 percent will go
to the Center and 17 percent to the Anna Maria Elemen-
tary School.
And three-quarters is also the amount of (open) land
at city hall that has been earmarked for kids and the sports
they enjoy. So, you can see that tearing down the build-
ing is not anti-children.
If after all is said and done, and the old building is
gone, I and other commissioners have already told the
Center board and staff that we will continue to serve them
as we have done for years. We also have a city to serve.
Serving both with decisions that satisfy either is not al-
ways easy.
By the way, I myself am not even borderline "mad as


hell" about your "inventive rhetoric," such as you accused
me of. I just can't understand how my "Tear it down!"
resembles rhetoric, inventive or otherwise.
Holmes Beachi City Commission
Chairman Don Maloney

Protect beach, protect lives
I feel obliged to add my voice to that of Jack
Gorzeman and John Adams in favor of the city of Anna
Maria being included in the Island renourishment effort.
As mayor of the city in 1995, I studied extensively on
the pros and cons of Anna Mariajoining our neighbors too
the south in this project. I came to the conclusion that it
was my duty to inform the citizens of the importance of
making perhaps the most important decision of their lives.
As an elected officials, my job was to protect the health,
safety and welfare of the citizens whose lives and homes
could be in extreme jeopardy without the protection of
additional sand added to our eroded beaches.
An informational booklet was sent to each home, and
several seminars were held at city hall to address all the
questions and concerns of those who attended. Those who
could not attend could read about it in the papers. Thus,
when the referendum passed by 60 percent in favor of
asking to join the project. I believe the voters knew exactly
what they were voting for.
When the current mayor was asked before the Febru-
ary 1996 election if he would abide by the vote, he an-
swered in the affirmative. Now it appears that his own
wish in this matter be held higher than that of the voters.
I urge all the citizens of Anna Maria to call or write their
elected officials and urge them to do their very best to see
that their vote is upheld.
This is probably your last chance to try to protect your
lives and property from the disastrous effects of a major
hurricane. Granted, nothing can save the Island from a
direct hit should that occur, God forbid, but I'm convinced
a restored beach would reduce some of the damage and
perhaps save lives.
To the beachfront property owners, I appeal once
more for your cooperation in this matter. You have noth-
ing too lose and everything to gain, in my opinion, and
your fellow Island neighbors will be forever grateful for
your cooperation with the county.
Dottie McChesnel .'v, foer mayor, Anna Maria

THOSE WERE THE BAYS
Part 3, A Spy for Uncle Sam
by June Alder


The opulent Tampa Bay Hotel on the banks of the Hillsborough boasted an
18-hole golf course, a race track for horses and a quarter-mile bicycle track
(top left corner).


BICYCLE SPY


Eighteen-year-old Mabel Will-
iams, daughter of the Port Tampa
Postmaster, enjoyed an exciting social
life when the U.S. Army came to town
in the spring of 1898. As a post office
employee she met many a young, lone-
some soldier who pursued her. But
romance took a back seat when she
entered upon a "secret mission" for
Army Gen. William Shafter.
The nature of her mission is re-
vealed in the third installment of her
memoir written in 1937.

By Mabel C. Bean
One Sunday morning I came
downstairs at my home all dressed to
go to Sunday School. I remember dis-
tinctly that I had on a dainty new blue
muslin dress and my dark curls were
tied at the back with a big blue ribbon
bow. My youth and health and happi-
ness, with the help of pretty clothes,
made up for whatever lack of beauty I
had and that morning I was feeling
well pleased with myself and the
world.
My parents were sitting in the par-
lor talking with a distinguished look-
ing gentleman in uniform, and they
called me in and introduced me to
their old friend Col. Groesbeck.
My mother told me that Col.
Groesbeck had come to talk to my fa-
ther about some very secret and seri-
ous work that Gen. Shafter (com-
mander of the expeditionary force to
Cuba) wanted to have done for the
government and that they had decided
that I was the one to do it. (My father
could not do it without being sus-
pected, they said, and besides, he
could not be absent from the post of-
fice.)
What I was told rather startled and
frightened me at first.
I was already a government em-
ployee and would not give up my
other work; my mother would take


charge of it for me when I had to be
absent. I would not get any other pay
than my post office work provided
and I would have nothing from any-
one to show what my service was to
be. It was simply to be an agreement
between Gen. Shafter, Col.
Groesbeck and my father.
I was to do secret service work for
Gen. Shafter and report to him in per-
son. I really did not want to do it but
I always tried to please my father so
I soon set out upon my task and fol-
lowed instructions.
I became a government spy.
The War Department in Washing-
ton had learned that certain Spaniards
in Port Tampa were suspected of
sending to Spanish authorities letters,
photographs and information about
Fort Dade and Fort DeSoto on
Egmont and Mullet Keys and other
details regarding military encamp-
ments in and around Tampa. I was
told to watch these two men as closely
as I possibly could and report their
actions.
Without the other workers in the
post office seeing me I took from the
mail everything to and from these two
suspects. I delivered it all to Gen.
Shafter at his headquarters at the
Tampa Bay Hotel.
I translated the letters from Span-
ish into English and read them to the
general. I engaged the two Spaniards
in conversation when they came to the
post office, and I followed them on
my bicycle, sometimes to Port Tampa
where I would go on some pretext of
an errand for my father, sometimes on
the train to Tampa.
To say that I was thrilled with the
excitement of it all would be putting
it mildly. I felt I was living in
storybook land.

"and all are invited to raise their voices in song there

Commission OKs outdoor
city hall lights
Holmes Beach city commissioners approved me-
dium-green outdoor lighting fixtures at new city hall.
The area will require 11 single fixtures at a cost of
$985 each and two double fixtures at a cost of $1,400
each, for a total of $13,635. The city can add street
names and traffic signs to the fixtures.
The city's beautification committee proposed that the
city install the lights in the city hall area first. Over time,
the city can add them neighborhood by neighborhood
along the city's main streets to tie the city together.
When the purchase was first discussed, commission-
ers questioned whether it must be sent out for bid. How-
ever, City Attorney Patricia Petruff said since the purchase
was already a part of the city hall budget, it can be con-
sidered a change order. The fixtures are $8,635 more than
lights previously approved.


Holmes Beach
to prepare storm kits
Holmes Beach city commissioners gave Police
Chief Jay Romine the OK to spend $4,200 on a trailer
to store storm equipment and move city documents.
Romine said his department will prepare storm
kits in watertight boxes that will contain equipment
such as chain saws, rain gear, tape and plastic
sheeting that will be necessary, but most likely
unavailable, after a storm.
He recommended the city purchase a closed
trailer for storing the storm kits and also to move
city documents and equipment to DeSoto County
for safe storage during a storm. The trailer will be
secured at the public works department.
The money for the purchase will be taken from
the equipment line item in the 1997-98 budget.

Inspection may increase Key Royale Bridge loads


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach commissioners plan to spend
$1,500 to rate the Key Royale Bridge to determine the
maximum weight of vehicles that can travel across it.
"The state came in two years ago and found inad-
equacies on the bridge and we were required to lower
the [weight] limits," Public Works Supervisor Joe
Duennes explained. "The repairs completed last week
were done to increase the longevity. I don't know that
they bring the bridge back to the original standards."
The bridge is slated for replacement by the
Florida Department of Transportation in the near
future. However, because of serious deterioration,
repairs were required to restore the bridge's struc-
tural integrity until it is replaced.


A sod story
By Susan K. Kesselring
Islander Reporter
It has been less than a year since the native plants
and flora of a garden dedicated to the late Commis-
sioner Mary Ross were uprooted to make room for the
Bermuda grass of present. Perhaps an omen, the lawn
did not fare well and recently had to be replaced.
Mayor Chuck Shumard said the lawn was replaced
because it died of a fungus. He said it would have come
back to life over a period of time though he felt replac-
ing it was the best option.
Public Works Director Phil Charnock said it cost
the city approximately $1,800 to hire Young's Land-
scape and Irrigation to replace the grass. He didn't have
an exact figure because he said the city has not received
a bill.
The soil was also a problem, said Charnock.
Charnock called the Florida Extension Service to
come out and assess the problem when the lawn turned
yellow. He said they ran different tests, including a soil
test that revealed the pH level of the soil was not at a
level conducive to the prospering of the sod.
Charnock believes the original sod was tainted.

Merlla's new WhiteBay I f
cabinetry is the ideal
choice for those seeking a II k
fresh look, along with the ,,,
convenience of an easy to
clean kitchen. The white laminate resists stains, spills and abra-
sions, all while maintaining its bright appearance. The traditional
raised panel, full overlay doors feature sharper profiles for a
more upscale look. And because they're available in squared
and arched models, you have more design options to truly make
your kitchen your own. All at the same value you've come to
expect from Merillat.

Repairs included removing the fiberglass jacket
system and the underlying deteriorated concrete and
reinforcing steel. The exposed reinforcing steel was
cleaned and new reinforcing steel was spliced onto it.
Concrete was poured around the existing pilons to form
a new structural concrete jacket.
"I don't know that it would serve any purpose for
us to change the load limit, much less pay $1,500 to
find out that it didn't have to be changed," Commission
Chairman Don Maloney said.
"We're looking for someone with expertise in the
field to tell us how strong our bridge is," Commissioner
Roger Lutz said. "I think that's important, and I think
we ought to do it."
Duennes said a state inspection of the bridge is
scheduled for next summer.

Commissioner Luke Courtney asked what vehicles
are prohibited because of the lower limits.
Duennes said asphalt is prohibited and that's why
repaving scheduled for this fiscal year has not been
done in Key Royale. He said concrete trucks for con-
struction projects are limited to carrying loads of three
yards or less.
"You can send light asphalt trucks across it, but the
increased cost of trucking by doing that and the ex-
tended time it requires greatly increases the cost,"
Duennes noted.
Mayor Carol Whitmore said she wants to know
how much weight the bridge can hold.
"From the traffic engineer's standpoint, I would
like to see the study done, so we're firm in the legality
of our regulations," Police Chief Jay Romine said.

Turtles, lights and humans
Well, Islander, congratulations. You have down-
graded yourself to the bulging ranks of shoddy jour-
nalism rag sheets adept at distortion and innu-
endo. Fact and truth are not a consideration, only a
wild race for banner headlines. You jumped on a
report from a sea turtle activist and put in print for
all to see events related to you by this individual
without investigating if what was said was true or
false.
You are within walking distance of the Coconuts
Resort. Did any of your staff go there to check out
the facts or interview the management to find out if
what you were told was correct? Did you question or
interview anyone else at all? I think not.
As an owner of one of the units at the Coconuts,
I can tell you that what you reported is a complete
distortion of the facts, I speak for myself only and
not for any other owner or the management com-
pany. They may or may not approve of what I say,
but I am so outraged that I am compelled to write
this.
Contrary to what your source said, there are am-


ber lights on the Gulfside of the complex, plus a se-
curity light has been made non-operational to comn-
ply with the turtle-watch program. It is scheduled to
be removed completely and may already be gone as
I write this.
if you or anyone else can see the pool lights from
three blocks down the beach, you need to be in a spe-
cial forces combat unit your eyesight is superb.
As far as five of 102 hatchlings winding up at the
Coconuts, who knows why? When they left their
nest,, some made a wrong turn, but it wasn't because
of lights at the Coconuts. As far as birds getting the
rest not likely. The remaining turtles are probably
at sea right now where they will face greater odds of
survival than strolling down the beach.
I, and I'm sure the rest of the owners and the Co-
conuts management, support the turtle-watch pro-
gram. It is a worthy and noble effort and we applaud
the volunteers that make it work.
But consider this: Ask any police officer what is
one of the best tools to combat crime, and he will tell
you lighting. Criminals and perverts lurk in the shad-
ows. It gives them cover from which they can wait
and act on their evil plans. Ask any insurance agent
what you can do to prevent accidents after dark and
one suggestion will always be lighting. Vandals also
seek the opportunity to work in the dark. Light is
their enemy as well.
This is a matter of priorities. Do we sacrifice the

safety and security of those who live on the Island
and those who visit, or do we protect the turtles at all
costs? You might ask that question of a woman
raped by a predator who hid in the darkness of the
night. You'll say it hasn't happened yet. Just wait.
Go ahead, turn off all lights and see what happens.
I am not saying to stop the turtle-watch program.
I am saying, stop reporting unsubstantiated state-
ments from fanatic activists running up and down
the beach with both arms raised yelling, "Lights!
Lights! Turn off the damn lights."
Finally, it is important for you to understand that
reporting like this damages the images of all busi-
ness on the island. Worse yet, it erodes your credibil-
ity as a source of reliable information. In the future
when I read your paper, I'll wonder, "Is that really
true?"
Allen Blackburn, Quinton, Va.
SEditor's note: Mr. Blackburn admittedly was not at
the scene when a nest of turtles met its demise at the
Coconuts. In all instances, Turtle Watch volunteers
and coordinators verify the death of non-survivors
by counting the eggs in the nest, by following the
tracks and seeking out the dead hatchlings. The
turtles did not make it to the sea, as he suggests. The
tracks showed otherwise as did the count of dead
hatchlings found at the Coconuts. Flood lights and
pool lights at the Coconuts were left on all night
according to Turtle Watch.

Islander joins rolls of 'best of best'


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Bradenton Beach's Jim Kissick is about to join
a Navy Roll of Honor established by an admiral who
grew tired of pilots getting all the glory and enlisted
crewmen not a crumb of credit.
Kissick, two-term Bradenton Beach city com-
missioner, was a radioman and rear gunner in Navy
SB2C Helldivers, World War II dive bombers flying
from the USS Yorktown.
He and several old shipmates will meet again
aboard the Yorktown for induction into the Enlisted
Combat Aircrew Roll of Honor on Oct. 9 at Charles-
ton, S.C., where the Yorktown is moored as a Navy
museum.
Kissick explained that the original Yorktown
was sunk by the Japanese fleet in the Battle of the
Coral Sea in 1942.
A carrier being built in a U.S. shipyard was
launched and christened as the USS Yorktown and
sent to the Pacific so the Japanese wouldn't know
they had sunk a prime carrier.
Kissick joined the Navy in 1942, not long after
the Japanese attacked Pearl
Harbor, Hawaii, bringing
the U.S. into World War II
and starting the war in the
Pacific.
As a radioman/gunner,
he flew 33 strikes, one of
his most memorable the
1945 Helldiver raid on the
Japanese base at Kure,
which put up the heaviest Kissick "then"
antiaircraft fire of the war
in the Pacific.
After the war he finished college and in 1948 re-
joined the Navy, this time as a commissioned pilot.
He flew most of the early jet fighters, he said, was
an instructor at Pensacola for awhile, then went into
blimps in anti-submarine warfare. He ran a task
group in Viet Nam, then wound up his Navy career
as military assistance officer in South America.
After retiring in 1967 as a commander, he went

into aviation as test pilot, a news helicopter pilot,
Bahamas weapons range air manager, and corporate
pilot until retiring in the early 1980s.
Born in his grandfather's store building on Terra
Ceia Bay, he never considered anywhere else but
this area home, he said, so on final retirement moved
to Bradenton Beach.
He still flies, nowadays in the 1948 Temco Swift
that he modified as "the poor man's P-5 I," after the
premier World War II fighter.
As for the Aircrew Roll of Honor, he said it's
been a long time coming not for him, especially,
but for all aircraft crewmen in the Navy.
He agrees with the founder of the Roll, retired
Rear Admiral James D. "Jig Dog" Ramage, who
started his career as an enlisted crewman and knew

"the guy in the back seat never got credit."
The first man on the Roll of Honor was Bruno
Gaido, who leaped into an SPD on the deck of the
USS Enterprise and with its .30-caliber machine gun
downed a Japanese bomber that tore across the deck
and hit his parked plane.
He survived, only to be shot down later, picked
up and questioned by Japanese, wrapped in chains
and tossed overboard.
Kissick himself nominated another early hon-
oree, a young gunner named Powell, who bailed out
of his burning plane over Okinawa, to be shot to
pieces by Japanese on the way down.
But many survived and will be in the Yorktown
with Kissick, who considers himself to be joining the
best of all possible company on the Roll of Honor.

Island police reports
Anna Maria City
Sept. 18, obstruction, fleeing to elude, DWLS, ha-
bitual offender, 200 block of Palmetto. The deputy
stopped the subject for a traffic violation and the subject
said he left his identification at home. The subject gave the
deputy a name, address, phone number and date of birth,
but the deputy could find no record of the person named.
He asked the subject for his Social Security number, and
the subject said he didn't remember it.
When the deputy informed the subject that he
could not leave until his identification was complete,
the subject fled. The deputy called for back-up. The
Holmes Beach officer identified the subject from the
description and said he has been cited for numerous
traffic violations. The deputy received information on
the subject's real name and a photo and learned that he
had a warrant. The subject was located in Bradenton
Beach and placed in custody.
Sept. 18, obstruction without violence, refusal to
sign citation, Gulf Drive and Willow. The deputy stopped
the subject, who was riding a bicycle at night without
lights. The subject refused to identify himself and the
deputy advised him he would be arrested if he didn't iden-
tify himself. He continued to refuse and was placed in
custody.
Sept. 27, theft of laundry from a dryer, 9906 Gulf
Drive, laundromat.
Sept. 27, theft, 500 block of Spring. The complain-
ant reported she observed the suspect take a wallet, iden-
tification and $37 in cash and flee.
Bradenton Beach
Sept. 21, grand theft of a bicycle valued at $400,
2300 block of Avenue C.
Sept. 21, lost property a watch valued at $75,


Official cited after
leaving accident scene
Bradenton Beach Building Official Bill Sanders
was cited by police after he hit a boat while driving
a city vehicle and left the scene of the accident.
According to the report, Sanders was driving
north on Church Avenue Thursday and attempted
to drive between a parked garbage truck and a 32-
foot boat in dry storage. The passenger side of
Sanders' city vehicle struck the boat, damaging
the swim platform. The vehicle's door, mirror and
window were also damaged.
Sanders left the scene without reporting the
accident to police, said the report. He was iden-
tified by a witness and was cited for failure to use
due care. Damages to the boat were $500 and
damages to the city vehicle were $1,500.


1800 block of Gulf Drive on the beach.
Sept. 22, possession of paraphernalia, 3700 block of
East Bay Drive, Holmes Beach. The officer said he ob-
served Chris Dale, 20, of Bradenton Beach, leaving a drug
area. He checked the tag and found it was not assigned to
the vehicle Dale was driving. He stopped the vehicle and
said Dale consented to a search. He found a drug pipe with
residue in Dale's pocket and issued a summons.
Holmes Beach
Holmes Beach police reports were not available
because employees were still unpacking city records that
were transported off Island on Friday due to the threat of
Hurricane Georges. The city's reports will appear in next
week's Islander Bystander.

Manatee Beach may get
future traffic light
The Florida Department of Transportation plans to
install a traffic light in Holmes Beach at the intersec-
tion of Manatee Avenue and Gulf Drive within the next
five to seven years.
Police Chief Jay Romine told city commissioners
about the plan recently. It was part of his report on the
safety and efficiency of three intersections in the city
as required in the comprehensive plan.
The intersections include Manatee Avenue and
Gulf Drive; Key Royale Drive, 66th Street and Palm
Avenue; and Gulf Drive, 82nd Street and Palm Drive.
In addition to the traffic light recommendation, the re-
port concluded:
The intersection of Key Royale Drive, 66th Street
and Palm Avenue does not meet the minimum stan-
dards for the placement of a traffic signal, Romine said.
Current speed limits are monitored for effectiveness in
safety and traffic flow.
At the intersection of Gulf Drive, 82nd Street and
Palm Drive, speed limits were decreased and additional
warning signs were placed in the area, Romine said.

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


Georges washes out
soccer action
The arrival of Hurricane Georges forced the can-
cellation of Anna Maria Island Community Center soc-
cer games scheduled for Thursday and Friday, while
Florida Suncoast Soccer League officials did the same
for IFC's scheduled game against the South Side Jam-
mers.
That seriously cuts into Island sports, but luckily
I caught a great Division I game between LaPensee
Plumbing and Island Real Estate on Tuesday night.

Sankey's game winner
ends shootout
Ryan Quigley scored five goals and assisted on the
game winner by Mark Sankey to lead LaPensee Plumb-
ing to an exciting 9-8 win against Island Real Estate.
Island Real Estate's Josh Sato matched Quigley goal
for goal but it wasn't enough as LaPensee came out on
top in a game that resembled indoor soccer with the
end-to-end action.
In my opinion, this was a game in which there re-
ally wasn't a loser. This was a game where time sim-
ply ran out on Island Real Estate. They would have
been forgiven if they had given up when they were
down 6-3 at halftime.
Island Real Estate should be patting themselves on


the back because there aren't many teams that would
continue to play hard with no substitutes and what
looked like no hope in facing a 6-3 deficit.
Skyler Purcell got the scoring going for LaPensee
when she hit a hard corner kick into the goal mouth that
bounced off a defender and into the goal for a 1-0
LaPensee lead that proved to be short lived.
Island Real Estate's Sato saw to that when he stole
a pass at midfield and took it right up the middle of the
LaPensee defense before finishing with a nice outside-
of-the-foot shot that beat goalie Ben Bryant to tie the
score 1-1.
Island Real Estate looked to take the lead in the
next few minutes when Sato again stole the ball and
dribbled through the LaPensee defense, but his shot
went wide.
Two minutes later, Sato received the ball and fed
a cutting Joey Mousseau but Bryant came out to make

and Sato hooked up again seconds later when
Mousseau launched a long goal kick to Sato, who
settled it before cutting inside the defender and beating
Bryant at the far post to give Island Real Estate a 2-1
lead.
The Island Real Estate lead was short lived as
LaPensee notched the equalizer on some nice passing
between Quigley, Sankey and Ben Holt. The play
started with Quigley stealing a throw in and sending it
inside to Holt. Holt settled the ball quickly before send-
ing it back outside to Sankey who beat William
Langston in goal to tie the score 2-2.
Island Real Estate wasted little time before retak-
ing the lead as Mousseau ran onto a perfect throw in
down the left wing and carried the ball in on Bryant

before finishing at the near post for a 3-2 lead.
LaPensee came right back to tie the score when
Sankey settled a long punt by Bryant before knocking
it inside to Quigley. Quigley dribbled the ball along the
18 yard line before back heeling it to a trailing Holt.
Holt one-timed the ball back to Quigley whose shot
found the back of the net to make it 3-3.
Island Real Estate looked like they were going to
retake the lead when Evan Pattison stole the ball at
midfield and took it one-on-one with Bryant, but the
LaPensee goalie bravely left his line to challenge
Pattison and survive a violent collision in coming up
with the save.
Quigley then took over for LaPensee as he scored
three goals in a five- minute span to give LaPensee
what looked like an insurmountable 6-3 lead going into
halftime.
Sato matched Quigley's three goal burst with one
of his own, taking a nice pass from Langston to cut the
lead to 6-4, then scoring two more on break aways to
tie the score at 6-6.
Quigley came back on defense to stop another Sato
scoring threat by stealing the ball, then took off on an
end-to-end run culminated with a nice shot to the near
post to again give LaPensee the lead, 7-6.
Seconds later, Quigley took the ball toward goal
but Zak Klassen stepped up with a tremendous slide
tackle to deny Quigley, who quickly popped up, recov-
ered the ball and fired a shot on goal but Mousseau was
there with the save.
Mousseau punted the ball down field but Nicole

Murray booted it back up field to Quigley. Quigley car-
ried the ball in on Mousseau before leaving it for
Sankey who was trailing on the play. Sankey cut inside
and beat Mousseau near post to extend LaPensee's lead
to 8-6 with time running out.
Island Real Estate took the kick-off and went right
down the field but Sato's shot was tipped wide by
Bryant in goal. Sato set up for the corner kick where he
unexpectedly kicked it to a charging Mousseau who
left his goal for the corner kick. Mousseau surprised ev-
eryone when he ran onto the ball and ripped it into the
back of the net to cut the LaPensee lead to one goal.
LaPensee took the kick off but a through pass went
too far and Mousseau fielded the ball before unleash-
ing a long punt to Sato, who headed it over the chal-
lenging defender before threading a left-footed shot
into the upper left corner of the goal to tie the score 8-
8 with less than five minutes remaining.
LaPensee lost the ball immediately after the kick-
off and again had Sato dribbling through the defense.
Sato fired a shot that a defender blocked with one hand
giving Island Real Estate a penalty kick. Unluckily,
Sato missed the free kick high and wide giving
LaPensee new life.
Another corner kick by Island Real Estate was
cleared to Quigley in midfield. Quigley took off down
the wing and took it on goal. Mousseau left his line to
challenge for the ball but Quigley alertly spotted
Sankey on his right and fed him the ball which he fin-
ished to end the game 9-8.
Quigley's five goals and three assists led
LaPensee, which got strong play from Sankey who
recorded a hat trick and Purcell who scored one goal
and played strong in the midfield. Holt recorded two
assists on the day while Murray and Bryant in goal
played strong games.
Sato led Island Real Estate with six goals and
two assists while Mousseau added two goals and two
assists. Pattison and Langston added an assist apiece
while Klassen and Michael Richards played well in
the midfield.

Another post-hurricane flap for thought


Hurricane Georges is now just a bad-good memory
for Islanders, depending on which side of the storm you
were on.
"Bad" for Bradenton Beach mobile home park resi-
dents, many of whom had to evacuate for a second time
Saturday night when the storm surge began to inundate
their parks.
"Bad" for residents and business owners who spent
much of Wednesday boarding, sandbaginand going, packing
and lifting valuables off the ground for the expected but
non-existent flood waters and high winds, only to have
to undo their efforts Saturday.
But for the other side:
"Good" that quirky Georges stalled for several
hours on the coast near Cuba, giving people more time
to prepare and proceed with an orderly evacuation of
the Island.
"Good" that an awful lot of people seemed to fol-
low emergency management officials oft-repeated plea
to leave early. The horrendous traffic jams that we've
all been told to expect didn't happen.
"Good" that there was no significant property loss.
no loss of life, no problems to speak of outside of some
inconvenience.
In fact, the only real problems occurred after the
storm had passed 250 miles or so to our west, when a
balloon of storm-surge-driven water oozed across the
beach and splashed onto bayfront yards.
Bradenton Beach was again the hardest hit of the
three Island cities, with a breach in the beach across the
street from Runaway Bay Condominiums that caused
Gulf Drive to be closed overnight. All in all, though,
the damage wasn't as serious as the flooding caused
here by Hurricane Earl's swipe earlier in the month -
a storm that passed us by much further out in the Gulf.
Emergency managers and elected officials will cri-
tique the actions and events of last weekend in the next
few days to hone the next storm reaction.
There will undoubtedly be some griping about or-
dering an evacuation for a storm that didn't material-
ize. There will also definitely be a discussion on the
lateness of sandbag delivery to the Island.
But here's my suggestion for consideration before
the next hurricane threatens our shores.
Every big storm, be it afternoon thunderstorm,
winter "no-name" or hurricane, prompts street flood-
ing. Some streets flood more than others, and a histori-


cally flood-prone area is Broadway at the north end of
Longboat Key.
In touring the Island to take storm pictures Satur-
day afternoon at peak storm surge and high tide, I went
down Broadway to check on Longboat Key flooding,
figuring that street would serve as a harbinger of all of
our neighbor to the south.
Surprise no flooding! Even though the road bed
was about eight inches lower than the rising water in
the bay, the street was bone dry.
Seems Longboat officials installed a weird con-
traption called a flapper valve on the street's drain. The
valve flaps open to drain rainwater from the street, but
flaps closed when bay waters start to back up into the
drain, sealing the pipe and the road from saltwa-
ter intrusion.
As I went through Anna Maria Island, saltwater
was bubbling up through drains and street-end pipes.
inundating streets and vards. If those odd flapper valves


had been installed, street flooding may have been
greatly minimized or eliminated.
Of course, a valve on a pipe won't do much good
if there's 10 feet of water surging from the Gulf to the
bays, but up to a point, at least, they seem to do the
trick.
A down side of the flapper valves is high mainte-
nance to keep barnacles and debris out of the way to let
them flap, and also the cost of the silly looking things.
But a few thousand dollars spent on valves is a
cheap price to pay versus replacement of flood-
crumbled asphalt roads and carpets in Island homes.

Sandscript factoid
Friday, Sept. 25, was the 150th anniversary of one
of the worst storms to hit the Tampa Bay area.
The 1848 storm caught most residents unaware.
The lighthouse keeper on Egmont Key found the entire
island covered with two feet of water before he knew
what was happening. He put his family in a boat and
waded to the center of Egmont Key, where he secured
the boat to palmetto trees and waited the storm out.
One woman said the water rose five feet in five
minutes.
The storm surge was judged to have been 12 feet
- about the same that New Orleans dealt with this

there as opposed to here, though much of New Or-

Georges stalls offshore action; bay fishing good


By Capt. Mike Heistand
Hurricane.Georges slowed offshore action this
week, but didn't hamper those hardy backwater fishers.
Action of the week includes lots of redfish, some snap-
per, flounder and snook.
By the way, the Florida Marine Fisheries Commis-
sion has proposed new snook rule amendments. High-
lights of the proposals include dropping the daily bag
limit from two to one fish, exempting for-hire captain
and crew members from adding to the daily boat bag
limit, increasing minimum size of snook from 24 to 26
inches, and prohibiting catches of linesiders greater
than 34 inches.
The commission will have a final public hearing on
the snook proposals Oct. 23. If they OK the changes,
it will need to be adopted or rejected by the governor
and cabinet, probably later this fall.
Another fisheries commission proposal of interest
would provide an automatic closure of red snapper
fishing to coincide with federal closure dates. If ap-
proved by the governor and cabinet Oct. 13, the closure
this year would start Nov. 1.
If you've got any questions, call the Florida Marine
Fisheries Commission at 850/487-0554.
Fishers at the Rod and Reel Pier report catching
a few snook, jacks and some mangrove snapper.
One lucky angler at the Anna Maria City Pier
caught a 52-inch-long, 45-pound cobia Monday after-
noon last week for what must be the catch of the week.
Capt. Thor Smith at Angler's Repair said he's
finding snook hunting improving, with redfish angling
remaining consistently good.
Capt. Jason Henzell and Capt. Kurt Morrison on
the Neva-Miss said they could only get offshore one
day last week due to weather, but got some nice gag
grouper and mangrove snapper. They advise staying
close to shore for the next few days until things quiet
down in the Gulf again.
Capt. Rick Gross said snook fishing is getting
better by the day, with more and more keepers being
boated each trip.
Capt. Mark Bradow said he's reeling in snook,

redfish and trout.
On my boat Magic we're still catching plenty of
redfish, a few keeper snook and mangrove snapper near
the Sunshine Skyway Bridge.
Capt. Tom Chaya is putting his charters onto
plenty of Spanish mackerel and reds.

Georges had an impact on offshore fishing last week,
but backwater anglers are still bringing in lots of snook,
redfish, trout, mangrove snapper and flounder.
At the South Skyway Fishing Pier, fishers report
mangrove snapper, flounder, mackerel, small sharks, big
yellowtail jacks and small grouper action is the best bet.
Good luck and good fishing.
