Partial beach renourishment partially OK'd


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Anna Maria City beach renourishment got a sig-
nificant boost from Manatee County commissioners
when they unanimously approved an official study
of the project.
If the feasibility study works out well, one. mile of
beach in Anna Maria City will be added to the
renourishment already planned from Bradenton Beach
to Holmes Beach, said Jack Gorzeman, who heads the
projects for the county.
Easements from owners along the Gulf are required


Arson


suspected


in vacant


Anna Maria


house
By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Fire'officials said eight fires, set last weekend in
a vacant house at 311 North Bay Blvd. in Anna
Maria, were the work of an arsonist targeting the
owner of the house.
"The house had just been renovated and Monday
the owner, Ted Cole, went to the house and discov-
ered that the fires had been set," explained Anna
Maria/West Side Fire Marshal Kurt Lathrop. "He
called sheriff's deputies and they called me."
Lathrop said he brought Penny, the district's ar-
son dog, to the house and they discovered eight
places where fires had been set. The Manatee
County sheriff's office brought its crime scene unit
to the house to collect evidence.
"We are waiting for the sheriff's office to pro-
cess the evidence," Lathrop said. "I sent samples that
I collected to the state fire marshal's office in Ha-
vana, Fla. We are working onleads. The case is on-
going."
Lathrop said because the fires appear to have
been carefully planned, the arson is not considered
a random act of vandalism.
The state fire marshal's office has offered a re-
ward of $1,000 for information leading to the arrest
and conviction of the perpetrator. Cole has added
$1.500 to that amount for a total of $2,500.
Anyone who saw any suspicious activity near
the house between Saturday evening (Oct. 17) and
early Monday morning (Oct. 19) or who has any in-
formation about the case is asked to call Lathrop at
741-3900.


to permit construction of the new beach, but not enough
of them in Anna Maria were forthcoming to make a city-
long project possible, he said. And Hurricane Georges
piled additional sand along much of the northern beach.
So the renourishing will run a mile north of 77th
Street, where enough property owners signed ease-
ments to make the work feasible, Gorzeman said. The
county expects to make that one-mile portion an adden-
dum to the original project, which will be from 13th
Street South in Bradenton Beach to 77th Street in
Holmes Beach.
Gorzeman hopes the renourishment can be done


during the winter of 1999-2000, finishing before the
sea turtle nesting season. Its cost is estimated at $9.3
million, with the Anna Maria City mile's portion $2.5
million. The high proportion there is because there is
little or no sand along that stretch and the beach must
be built almost from scratch, Gorzeman explained. The
Bradenton Beach-Holmes Beach section is a relatively
simple renourishment of beach rebuilt by the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers the winter of 1991-92.

Key Royale Bridge deemed

stronger after repairs


An engineering firm has determined that the Key
Royale Bridge is stronger and the life expectancy is
greater following recent repairs.
The city paid David Volkert and Associates Inc.
$1,500 to determine the maximum weight of vehicles
that can travel across the bridge. Weight limits were
lowered two years ago after a state inspection found the
bridge in dire need of repairs due to deterioration.
Until repairs were made, asphalt trucks were prohib-
ited, delaying the city's repaving project in Key Royale.


Concrete trucks for construction projects were limited to
carrying loads of three yards of concrete or less.
Volkert recommended that:
The city's public works department write year-
long permits to intermittent users of overload vehicles,
such as concrete and lumber companies, but not change
the load limits.
The public works department issue one-time use
permits to asphalt and other trucking companies that
exceed the weight limit.
The city restore the speed limit to 25 mph.


Taxpayers foot bill for

Anna Maria public records lawsuits


By Susan K. Kesselring
Islander Reporter
With the bills in from all sides in two lawsuits
against the City of Anna Maria, it has been revealed
that the city paid $8,087.01 extra in legal fees for vio-
lations of Florida Public Records Law.
In October 1977 resident Dale Woodland asked
about the fees from the lawsuits and City Clerk Peg
Nelson denied any costs.
But it would have been more truthful to say: Not yet.
The legal fees incurred by the city as a result of the
lawsuits were requested again most recently by resident
Georgia Van Cleave, both by letter and in person.


Van Cleave's first request was made during bud-
get hearings in August and again at a private meeting
with Mayor Chuck Shumard on Aug. 24. A separate
request was made by letter following the August meet-
ing in Shumard's office.
The information, along with a written apology
from Nelson for not satisfying the request in a timely
manner, was made available to Van Cleave shortly af-
ter an Oct. 13 commission meeting when she asked
why her request had not been fulfilled.
Nelson said at the October meeting there was a

Walk this way, that way in Anna Maria


By Susan K. Kesselring
Islander Reporter
A double crosswalk on the west corner of Magno-
lia Avenue and Gulf Drive was recently put down, but
soon it will multiply.
Anna Maria Public Works Director Phil Charnock
said he plans to make this intersection a four-way cross-
walk. He said one of the reasons is that children are let off
the school bus on the side of the street nearest the store
where there is no crosswalk. The crosswalks are located
on the west side of Magnolia Avenue and Gulf Drive.
Phyliss Eisen, clerk at Islanders' Market, said both
sides of Magnolia Avenue should be striped and a
flashing yellow light needs to be installed at the top of
the "Yield to Pedestrian" sign.
However, a four-way crosswalk at the intersection
of Magnolia Avenue and Gulf Drive is certain to cre-
ate a problem with parking at Islander's Market.
Because of the issue of safety, Charnock said de-
lineators would have to be placed where the yellow
lines are now located to ensure traffic is veered away
from the crosswalks. As a result, parallel parking in
front of the store and some diagonal parking on Mag-
nolia would be eliminated, he said.
Charnock plans to meet with store owner Frank
Andiamo to discuss the matter. Charnock also said the
parking lot in back of the store is not zoned for com-
mercial use. -
Right now there are single crosswalks at Oak Av-
enue and Gulf Drive, across from Roser Memorial
Community Church on Pine Avenue, and past the

More of same for 8 months at Cafe on Beach


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
It's status quo at Cafe on the Beach for another
eight months. Operators Dee Percifield and Gene
Schaefer hope to continue for another eight years.
Faced with mounting back rent and no hope for
recouping their losses, Percifield and Schaefer asked
the Manatee County Commission last month to end
their present lease.
They asked to continue in business and re-
quested that the county consider rewriting the lease
and rebidding the contract.
The county board's unanimous approval fol-
lowed its staff's response to a directive to find a way
to keep the popular restaurant open with current
management in place.
The contract between the county and P.S. Beach
Associates is inflexible and doesn't allow for fluc-
tuating weather conditions, said Schaefer, who with
Percifield forms P.S. Beach Associates, the conces-


sion contractor.
They lost most of the winter business, with
mostly outdoor dining, to nasty weather and the
summer to excessive heat. Other factors that kept
people away from the beach over the contract period
included the closing of the Cortez Bridge for
months, a beach renourishment project, and two
months of red tide.
Under the contract, rent for Cafe on the Beach at
the Manatee County Public Beach and the concession
at Coquina Beach rose annually to hit $16,531 last
June, and the business couldn't support that much. In
the past, off-season rent was delayed until seasonal
business could make it up. This year it couldn't be
done, said Schaefer, and the shortfall built to $69,531.
The county was very helpful in trying to find a
solution, Schaefer said, and finally last week staff-
ers presented an acceptable answer to the commis-
sioners.
A flat rent of $10,000 per month plus $6,000 ev-

misunderstanding. Nelson said she assumed Van.
Cleave's request was satisfied at her meeting with the
mayor in August.
The city's procrastination in providing Van Cleave
information is similar to two lawsuits against the city,
defended unsuccessfully.
According to Anna Maria's Charter, the city clerk
is responsible for meeting all requests for public
records. The Government-in-the-Sunshine manual
states requests for public records must be produced in
a timely manner, most basically in the time it takes to
retrieve the document from the files and make a copy
of the document.
The first lawsuit against the city was filed on be-
half of Ken Peterson Inc., doing business as 5 O'Clock
Marine, in February 1997 for violation of Public
Records Law.
A settlement was reached in Ken Peterson Inc.
versus Shumard and the city was ordered to pay
Peterson's attorney fees and court costs of $2,322.05.
The city paid its counsel $3,034.95 for related fees.
A second suit was brought by Bonner Presswood,
publisher of The Islander Bystander, in September
1977. In Presswood vs. Shumard, et, al., Presswood
also sued the city for violation of the Public Records
Law. A settlement was reached whereby the city pro-
vided the requested documents and was ordered to pay
$903.50 for Presswood's attorney's fees and court


costs. An additional $1,826.50 was paid to Harrison,
Hendrickson, Douglass & Kirkland, P.A., to represent
the city.
Approximately 21 percent of the city's actual bud-
get for fiscal year 1997-98 was spent on legal fees in-
curred from the two lawsuits. Of the actual $39,002.33
legal expenses, each taxpayer contributed an extra
$5.74 for the city to defend itself.

Legal costs per taxpayer
According to information from the Manatee
County Property Appraisers office, in Anna Maria
City there were 1,409 people on the tax rolls for fis-
cal year ended Sept. 30, 1998. In Holmes Beach
there were 3,438 taxpayers and in Bradenton Beach,
1,165 taxpayers.
The amount contributed per taxpayer for legal fees
during fiscal year 1997-98 in the three Island cities
follows:
In Bradenton Beach, the city commission budgeted
$38,100 for legal fees and actual expenditures were
$33,642.11. Each taxpayer contributed $28.88.
In Anna Maria the amount budgeted by the com-
mission was $30,000 and actual expenditures were
$39,002.33. Each taxpayer contributed $27.68.
The amount budgeted for legal fees in Holmes
Beach is part of a broader category of professional ser-
vices which budgeted $111,300 inclusive. However,
$64,860.38 was spent on legal fees, with each taxpayer
contributing $18.87.


ery two weeks during season to catch up with the
$69,000 arrears, was approved by both sides. The res-
taurant, at the beach end of Manatee Avenue, should be
all caught up financially by June, Schaefer said.
Meanwhile, the county will issue a call for bids
for the operation of the two restaurant concessions.
That bid search is expected to take about eight
months, and P.S. Beach will keep on operating un-
der the new deal until a new contract is let.
Schaefer said he and Percifield definitely plan to
bid for the new contract, bidding "realistically based
on what we know the business can support."
He expects competition from large chain opera-
tors, which "I hope can appreciate the difference
between a totally weather-related location instead of
a stadium or airport and so on."
Schaefer said he and Percifeld were over-
whelmed by the public support they received to con-
tinue to the business.
Schaefer has investment and mortgage broker
businesses on the mainland and Percifield owns
Dee's Boutique and Christmas Shop, 3324 East Bay
Drive. Holmes Beach.


Beach renourishment

seven years ago, the county is taking the lead this time.
Of the $9.3 total cost, the federal share is to be 54 per-
cent, state 26 percent, county 20 percent.
The federal funding is more tedious this time
around, Gorzeman said, because the 1991-92 funds
came from the Corps, while the new project must be
funded separately by Congress.
Because of that slower process, the county plans to
pay the federal share and collect it from the federal
government after the fact. The state's share "looks
good," Gorzeman said, and the county's part will come
from the three-cent tourist "bed tax," one cent of which
goes to beaches.
Gorzeman will "pursue the northern one-mile sec-
tion parallel with the rest of the project." Should it be
delayed by permits or other snags, it was set up by the
commission to be done separately later, if necessary, or
held until the next Island-long renourishment.
Meanwhile, a source of sand compatible with
what's already on the Island's beaches is being sought,
with core sampling under way now. Estimates are that
1.6 million cubic yards of sand will be needed.
Anna Maria Mayor Chuck Shumard told commis-
sioners that he had been against renourishment of his city's
beaches, but he's for it now "we've really lost a lot of
beach, Georges took an awful toll."

Two arrested on gambling charges in Holmes Beach


Holmes Beach Police and Delta Task Force agents
of Manatee County sheriff's office arrested two
Holmes Beach men Wednesday and charged them with
felony counts of bookmaking and conspiracy to com-
mit bookmaking and a misdemeanor of gambling.
Police allege that Don Madden, 64, of 77th Street and
Richard Weaver, 43, of Clark Lane ran a gambling opera-
tion out of Madden's Holmes Beach Barber Shop in the
Holmes Beach Shopping Center and Weaver's home.
"The number of clients varied according to the
time of year and the sporting event," Holmes Beach Lt.
Dale Stephenson said. "We estimate there were be-
tween 20 and 40 clients who wagered on professional
and college football, basketball and baseball games."
According to affidavits, "The defendants did accept
bets and/or wagers on results of sporting events both col-
lege and professional. In doing so, the defendants used
betting odds and charged a percentage fee to the individual
bettors. The defendants did accept at times, more than five
bets on a single day related to one event."
Stephenson said between January and October, he
and a confidential informant placed approximately 20
bets with the pair. As many as four bets were placed at
one time and they collected almost $150 in winnings.
"At first the informant dealt only with the defen-
dant [Madden], but in September, the defendant issued

said Stephenson.
The report noted that Weaver's job was to answer
customers' phone calls and keep an accounting of
money owed. In September, Stephenson said he re-

the men were not harming anyone by taking bets.

Constitutional amendments on Tuesday's ballot


By Paul Roat
You've got less than a week to do your homework
before election day.
The ballot for the Nov. 3 general election is a huge
one, what with its 13 constitutional revisions, state and
local races and a pair of local tax questions for voters to
ponder.
So take a few minutes to read about the issues before
you enter the polls. As a guide, here is a synopsis of some
of the questions on Tuesday's ballot.

Constitutional revisions
Every 20 years, voters have an opportunity to change
the state constitution, the guiding document of Florida.
This year, 13 amendments to the constitution are being
offered to voters.
Revision 1 deals with historic property tax exemp-
tions and assessments. The revision would allow counties
or cities, by ordinance, to assess historic properties solely
on the basis of character or use for property tax purposes
and not provide tax credits based on actually renovating
the property. In other words, people who own historic
homes or land could get a tax break and not have to actu-
ally improve the property or house.
Revision 2 deals with the death penalty, adding the
sentence of death to the constitution. Proponents of the
death penalty support the measure; opponents do not.
Revision 3 proposes an additional $25,000 homestead
exemption for people 65 years of age and older with an-
nual incomes of less than $20,000. This revision would
need to be approved locally before taking effect.
Revision 4 allows branch offices of the county seat,
increasing accessibility to government by citizens.
Revision 5 is an environmental change that would
merge the Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission and
the Marine Fisheries Commission into the Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission. The new commission
would have broader powers than the former two agencies,
including the sale of bonds to buy land for conservation
or recreational purposes.


Revision 6 strengthens the state's stance on prioritiz-
ing education and calls for education to be "a paramount
duty of the state."
Revision 7 deals with judicial matters. If approved,
county electors would vote to either elect trial judges or
have them appointed by the governor, with voters having
the balloting right to retain them subsequently. Judges
would also serve six years instead of the current four, and
the state would pick up a bigger slice of the cost of oper-
ating courts.
Revision 8 is probably the most controversial of the
13 amendments to the constitution. If approved, the
Florida Cabinet would be restructured from six officials
to three: chief fiscal officer, attorney general and agricul-
ture commissioner. The secretary of state and education
commissioner would be eliminated from the elected Cabi-
net; secretary of state duties would be redefined; the state
board of education would change from Cabinet-governor
oversight to a board appointed by the governor, and the
board would then appoint an education commissioner.
Proponents of Revision 8 say it would streamline state
government. Opponents say it would remove the voter's
right to elect cabinet posts and gives too much authority
to the governor.
Revision 9 calls for equal treatment of women and
men under the law, calls for no one to be deprived of any
right because of national origin and changes the term
"physical handicap" to "physical disability" under the law.
Proponents say Revision 9 would help women
through providing a legal basis for eliminating barriers to
political and business advancement. Opponents say the re-
vision would open the door to same-sex marriages in
Florida.
Revision 10 is a catch-all proposal dealing with prop-
erty tax exemptions and citizen access to public officials.
If approved, the amendment would allow the legislature
to exempt some municipal and special district property
used for airport, public or seaport purposes from taxes. It
would also allow local option tax exemptions for property
used for conservation purposes and tangible personal


property for attachments to mobile homes and some resi-
dential rental furnishings. Finally, it allows citizens to talk
to officials about issues outside of public hearings.
Revision 11 would allow voters from all political
parties to vote in primary elections if the primary election
winner does not face a challenger in a general election. In
other words, if two Democrats were running for an elected
position and there was no Republic challenge, Republi-
cans could vote in the primary election for one of the two
Democrats.
School districts would also be permitted to decide
whether school boards should be partisan or non-partisan
under Revision 11.
Revision 12 would allow counties to increase from
three to five days the "cooling off" period required be-
tween paying for and taking possession of handguns. It
would also close a current loophole which allows purchase
of handguns at gun shows without any waiting period.
People with concealed weapons permits would be exempt
from waiting requirements.
Revision 13 is a technical amendment which clarifies
language within the constitution.

Witch, Mitch
As Halloween approaches, so does Hurricane
Mitch.
Hopefully, for us, it will take a westerly direction.
But hoping that sends the Category 5 storm, the stron-
gest since Gilbert in 1988, to Honduras.
It's hard to wish the wrath of a storm.so severe, ca-
pable of catastrophic damage, according to the National
Hurricane Center in Miami, on anyone, let alone
Belize, the islands of the western Caribbean, Hondu-
ras and Mexico.
Historically, this is only the fourth storm season to
record "M" named storms since naming began in 1951.
Late-season storms included Martha in 1969,
Marco and Nana in 1990. Hurricane Marco churned in
the western Carribean in nearly the same location in
1996.
Only three other hurricanes have been rated Cat-
egory 5, Allen in 1980, an unnamed Keys hurricane in
1935 and Gilbert in 1988.
Hold on to your sandbags for awhile. This hurri-
cane season is in the record books.

Treat yourself
Vote. Voting can be beneficial to your future blood
pressure.
If you have your say on the ballot, you can always
take credit for putting your candidate in office when he/
she does a good job. You can blame the other party and
other voters if someone fouls things up.
Most critical locally, two proposed sales taxes
await Manatee County voter approval.
The Manatee County School Board wants to con-
tinue its sunsetting one-cent sales tax with a half-cent
tax for the next five years.
Manatee County wants its turn at collecting and
spending a one-cent tax and will be sharing tax collected
with county municipalities including the Island cities.
We can't answer for everyone, but at least in Holmes
Beach, we feel commissioners squandered the infrastruc-
ture-only money on a new city hall. To make matters
worse, they allotted the windfall funds to more urgent
projects such as drainage and repairs to the Key Royale
Bridge (as they should have done initially) and have bor-
rowed the funds to build city hall, all $1.2 million.
New offices and storage cost the city's 3,438 tax-
payers $349.04 each.
The whole scenario is irresponsible in our opinion
and we're opposed to giving them a chance to squan-
der more.
If you're in favor of extending the optional sales
tax, vote "yes" for the school tax, "yes" for kids.
They'll get it all this go-'round.

'Let's not drop ball on this one'
My wife and I attended the commission-meeting
on Thursday, Oct. 15, with an interest in the fate of
the old city hall building. We are hoping that the
Anna Maria Island Community Center will be al-
lowed to use the facility to help them keep provid-
ing great service to the children, teens and senior
citizens of this wonderful island. It would also allow
them close proximity to the soccer and baseball
fields in which they will be scheduling all of the
league games.
Center Executive Director Pierrette Kelly spear-
headed a presentation in which the Center said they
would bring the building up to specs in regard to
electrical, plumbing and safety standards. They also
presented a plan to tie in the looks of the older city
hall with the new one, and have the financing to do
so at no cost to the taxpayers of this community.
To tear down this building would cost approxi-
mately $12,000 to the taxpayers, and no allocations
in the budget have been provided this.
I did not hear one valid argument against letting
the Center use the facility. Commissioner Roger
Lutz did say he had a fear of future Center manage-
ment painting the building orange. Come on!
Prominent citizens Rex Hagen, Trudy Moon and
Dr. Scott Kosfeld spoke in favor of letting the Cen-
ter use the facility.
The purpose of this letter is to encourage all of
the citizens of this island to call your commission-
ers and support letting the Center use the old City
Hall. Our children, teens, and senior citizens deserve
the best we can offer. Let's not drop the ball on this
one!
Chuck Caudill, Holmes Beach

Hurricane help
We were blessed on the Island. Our hearts and
prayers go out to those who were less fortunate. My
wife and I would like to thank the public servants
who provided security to our Island. Yes, they are
paid but having been there, done that, I know it is a
special breed that serves the public when their fami-
lies are without them in times of emergency.
To the many volunteers, especially the Manatee


Chapter of the Red Cross at Sugg Middle School,
our thanks for your service and attentiveness to our
comfort. To those who availed yourselves of their
service, I say if you can afford it, put the check in the
mail.
Pete and Margaret Slack, Bradenton Beach

Bradenton Beach
gets thumbs up
Maybe my small American city does not always
run the way one thinks it should, but when it comes to
caring about its citizens, Bradenton Beach is first on the
list. This was shown vividly during the threat of Hur-
ricane Georges. From our elected officials, to the tire-
less work of our public works and city hall employees.
Also, the heartwarming feeling of having a po-
lice force that knows how to protect us and cares
about the well being of its citizens.
To everyone, I am deeply grateful and give
thanks to know that I live in the best place in
America.
Robert Byrne, Bradenton Beach

Applause for Guy, his cats
I did like the article that Jim Hanson wrote about
Charles Guy and his beloved cats. What a wonder-
ful story and what a wonderful, caring person.
People who love animals know what a "good
high" you get from feeding them and loving them.
They ask so little and give you so much! It is their
world too.
I just came back from a three-month stay near
Ocala. It is beautiful country there, beautiful horse
farms and land, plenty of forest. The owner where I
was staying beat his dog for getting on the couch. I
did save Charlie, the beautiful Dalmatian, from a
few beatings. For his multiple cats, he shot them. I
started having nightmares, so I left.
The first week I was here I picked up your paper
and found the article refreshing, after what I had
seen.
Good luck Charlie (Guy) and God bless. This
world needs more people like you. And don't let
anyone put a "cloud" on your day.

THfSE WERE THE DAYS
Part 3, The Life and Loves of Hernando de Soto
by June Alder





S,, Spanish King
I^ .' ,, Ferdinand's 1514
/' expedition encoun-
S- " : ters opposition from
the natives of
.... , ,Panama.


PERFIDIOUS


PEDRARIAS


On a June day in 1514, with royal
banners unfurled and the sound of trum-
pets echoing from mountain to moun-
tain, King Ferdinand's fleet sailed ma-
jestically up the San Juan River to the
Crown settlement of Santa Maria in
Dari6n (today known as Panama).
The expedition's commander, an
aged but still fearsome conquistador
nicknamed Pedrarias (real name: Pedro
Arias de Avila), wished to dazzle the as-
semblage of Indians and bedraggled vil-
lagers gathered on the river bank.
Most of all he wanted to show the
upstart Vasco Ndfiez de Balboa- the
man he had come to replace as governor
of the colony-how important he was.
On board the 21 vessels were nearly
3,000 adventurers hoping to find gold as
advertised in what passed for travel bro-
chures in 1514. The king also had great
expectations. Balboa's confidence that he
would find a.passage to the fabled South-
ern Sea spurred the king to support the
failing settlement Balboa had revived.
The troops came ashore in small boats
and stood stiffly in formation at dockside
waiting for the ceremonies to begin.
Pedrarias was first to alight at the
wharf with his wife, Dofia Isabel de
Bobadilla. She wore an elegant gown of
brocade, as befitted a member of one of
the leading noble families of Spain.
Next came the new bishop, sent on the
expedition by the pope and a close
friend of Dofia Isabel's. He looked prop-
erly imposing in rich purple vestments.
Behind this trio came the fleet officers
and other important personages on the
voyage. Following them were the two
Pedrarias daughters, 9-year-old Isabel and
6-year-old Elvira, accompanied by their
maids and ladies-in-waiting.
Lastly came the household guard.
Among them was the future conqueror of
Florida, Hernando De Soto, a 14-year-old
protege of Pedrarias. He wore a jaunty hat
and a velvet coat bearing the crest of the
house of his commander and protector.
Already Hernando had an air of confi-
dence about him. His duty was to be an
aide to Dofia Isabel and her children.
The two principal actors in the drama
greeted one another with salutes and bows
and made short speeches. They presented


a striking contrast in appearance.
Seventy-four-year-old Pedrarias, a
lover of finery-he had been called "The
Gallant" in his youth-wore a short cape,
high boots, puffy silk breeches and carried
at his side an ornamented Toledan sword
in a velvet-covered scabbard. His long
white beard fluttered in the breeze.
Dark-haired Balboa was half his age,
handsome, tanned and muscular. He wore
a cotton shirt, wide homespun breeches
and had rope sandals on his feet. We might
say today that he had "gone native."
After Mass a luncheon was served
where more speeches were made.
Balboa invited Pedrarias and Dofia
Isabel to stay the night in his home while
places were found for other newcomers
in the homes of long-time settlers.
All next day Pedrarias and Balboa
talked. Pedrarias wanted to know details
about the activities of the colony, the rela-
tions with the Indians (which Balboa de-
scribed as cordial for the most part) and, of
course, about where gold was to be found.
The meeting appeared to be
friendly. Balboa asked for Pedrarias's
patience while arrangements were made
for his accommodations. Neither man
gave any hint of animosity for the other.
Pedrarias remarked that, of course, there
would be what was called a "trial of resi-
dency"-sort of an audit which was cus-
tomary in changes of administration.
Such "trials" were usually routine
and perfunctory. But not this time.
Several days later a proclamation
was read in the village square that
shocked the populace. Balboa had been
arrested to stand trial for a long list of
charges drawn up by the new governor.
The chief accusation was that he had
been responsible for the death of a
former partner in the establishment of
Santa Maria who had disappeared dur-
ing a foray into the jungle.
Balboa was not surprised at
Pedrarias's perfidy; his reputation for ruth-
lessness was well known. His life was in
peril, Balboa realized. Only the King
could save him.

Next: Balboa's
discovery too late?

Procedures disputed in Holmes Beach


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The first reading of amendments to the city's cel-
lular tower ordinance sparked a heated discussion over
procedure last week at the Holmes Beach City Com-
mission meeting.
Commissioner Luke Courtney maintained that the
ordinance must be reviewed by the planning commis-
sion first and that the city did not give proper notice of
the meeting.
The amendments were requested by Primeco Per-
sonal Communications so it can erect an antenna atop
Martinique North, a six-story condominium. In August,


Canal commission
request okayed
Holmes Beach city commissioners approved
a canal commission request to investigate a pilot
program for dredging the city's canals.
Canal commissioners recommended to the
city commission that they select one or two of the
city's canals and do research on how much dredg-
ing would cost, how much spoil material will be
generated, how to dispose of the spoil material
and how much it will cost to dispose of the ma-
terial.
"From this the city could determine how to
proceed with the entire project and learn what
county, state and West Coast Inland Navigational
District funds might be available to assist us,"
Chairman Bob Jorgensen said.
It would also give the city experience in
working with dredging specialists and contrac-
tors, Jorgensen said.

Primeco was denied a building permit for the antenna
because antennas are not permitted at the Martinique,
within the A-l zoning district.
In September, Primeco's attorney told the commis-
sion that antennas of less than 10 feet should be allowed
without special use permits and they should be allowed in
the A-1 district. Commissioners agreed and City Attorney
Patricia Petruff drafted the changes to the ordinance.
In addition to the requested changes, Petruff said
the amended ordinance "substantially reorganizes the
sections in a manner which I believe makes them more
understandable and readable. No changes have been
made to the substantive provisions of the tower stan-
dards and criteria."
Commission Chairman Don Maloney said that at
its last work session, the commission agreed to hold the
first reading at the Oct. 20 meeting. He said he placed
the item on the agenda, but Courtney had it removed
from the agenda.
When Maloney learned of Courtney's action, he
had the item put back on the agenda. However, this was
after the agenda had been published. On the day of the
meeting, the item was placed on a supplemental
agenda.
"I know that's been the case for at least 10 years -
that nothing is read until it's passed on to the planning
commission," Maloney noted in reply to Courtney. "I
do not understand the logic in that because it does not
appear anywhere in our codes or regulations."
In a memo to the commission Petruff pointed out that
the planning commission must review all proposed ordi-
nances but the review is not required prior to first reading.
"In fact, from a practical standpoint, if an ordi-
nance does not pass first reading, then there would be
no reason for it to be forwarded to the planning com-
mission for review," Petruff said.
Petruff said the issue of notification is not ad-

dressed in the city's Legislative Procedures Act but
according to the Sunshine Law, "an agency is not re-
quired to provide notice of each item discussed via a
published agenda."
"I don't care what the attorney says," Courtney
protested. "I don't believe her. You're not going to
change the procedures of this city because you want to.
We've never done this in the past."
"I'm concerned about this procedure," resident
Jane Early said. "If you can add to an agenda after Fri-
day, it opens the door for a commission to present
things without proper public notification."
Maloney said that's not an issue because the com-
mission always takes public comment before a meet-
ing is adjourned.
Early then noted, "In the past the commission has
said anything that wasn't submitted by the Friday dead-
line would not be on the agenda. All of sudden, you can
do it and we can't."
"In the past when citizens tried to get something on
the agenda after the deadline, we were told it couldn't
be done," resident Joan Perry added.
Courtney said according to the city's Legislative
Procedures Act, there must be seven days notice to put
an item on an meeting agenda and 10 days notice to put
an item on a work session agenda.
"You might have been told it couldn't be put on the
agenda, but that didn't mean you couldn't bring it up
at the meeting," Maloney replied.
Commissioner Sandy Haas-Martens noted that the
item was on the agenda before Courtney removed it.
"We'made a commitment to these people to have
a first reading," Mayor Carol Whitmore stressed.
Commissioners approved the first reading of the
ordinance and plan to hold the second reading on Nov.
10. In the meantime, it will be reviewed by the city's
planning commission.

Bayview Plaza, Savannah's coming to Anna Maria


By Susan K. Kesselring
Islander Reporter
Change is looming in the City of Anna Maria.
Soon, a retail shopping center and ice cream shop will


be constructed on the empty, overgrown lots on the
north and south corners of Bay Boulevard and Pine
Avenue across from the city pier.
The mini-mall to be constructed on the north corer,

estimated to cost $987,000, will be named Bayview Plaza.
Owner Jim Toomey said two separate buildings will be
constructed on the lots. One building will house a mix of
six retail stores, and the other two-story building will sit
behind it, with the upstairs being used as a combination
office and studio. Downstairs will be used for retail space.
Toomey is currently co-owner of a retail business,
Two Sides of Nature, with locations in Bradenton
Beach and Anna Maria. The stores sell beach clothes,
purses, candles, dinnerware and knickknacks.
The contractor for Bayview Plaza is Ted Spaulding
of TBS Constructors Inc. He said the project is ex-
pected to start at the end of October and should be com-
pleted within five months.
The ice cream shop planned on the south corner
will be called Savannah's according to Public Works
Director Phil Charnock.
Charnock said owner Robert Byrne told him he
plans to sell Eddy's brand-name ice cream. It is not
known at this time when construction is going to begin.
The plans for Bayview Plaza and Savannah's are
presently being reviewed by the building department.

City to write policy for donations


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach city commissioners plan to discuss
a proposal to establish a policy for donations at the next
work session Nov. 10.
The proposal is the result of this year's budget
hearings in which the city's donations dominated dis-
cussion. Donations for this fiscal year total nearly
$40,000 and include:
Anna Maria Island Community Center -
$22,000.
Mote Marine Laboratory $500.
Anna Maria Island Historical Society $500.
Friends of the Island Branch Library $500.
Anna Maria Island Community Center Endow-
ment Trust $1,000.
START (Solutions to Avoid Red Tide) -
$5,000.
Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce -
$500.
Sarasota Bay National Estuary Program -
$1,000.
Anna Maria Island Elementary School $7,000.
Keep Manatee Beautiful $500.
Anna Maria Island Turtle Watch $1,500.
Commission Chairman Don Maloney said the
city's budget details how the city will spend its revenue
except for the money donated to various Island and
county organizations.
"I believe the citizens are entitled to the same line-
by-line information concerning what those organiza-
tions intend to do with that money as well as what they
actually did with it before next year's request is pre-
sented," Maloney noted.
Maloney said donations should be limited to non-
profit organizations located within the city limits and/
or those that provide services beneficial to city resi-
dents.
"The total amount should be set ahead of time,"
Maloney said. "Donations would be allotted to non-
profit agencies that fit in the categories of cultural, his-
torical, environmental, economic, social/human ser-


vices, educational and any other category the commis-
sion decides should be considered."
City Attorney Patricia Petruff said there are two
types of groups that are potentially affected non-
profit corporations and charitable organizations.
"A not-for-profit corporation is defined under state
law as being a corporation which does not have share-
holders and which does not give dividends to its-mem-
bership," Petruff said. "Instead, any surplus money it
may have at the end of its fiscal year is retained by the
corporation and not distributed as profit.
"A charitable, or 501c3 agency, is defined under
the federal tax code. It is a type of not-for-profit cor-
poration and contributions to it are tax deductible. I
recommend the city focus on approved charitable en-
tities."
Maloney said the organizations should document
the need for the proposed service or activity, how it will
work and how it will benefit the community. He said
the activity should not duplicate present city services.



City seeks grant for

electric cars
Holmes Beach Mayor Carol Whitmore has
applied for a grant to purchase two electric cars for
evaluation by the city. The $15,000 grant is from
the Florida Suncoast Clean Cities Coalition.
In the application, Whitmore wrote, "We
want to know how these types of vehicles affect
traffic flow due to their slow speeds and meet
the everyday needs of the city. It is our intention
to have two electric cars available for use at city
hall for elected officials, administrative em-
ployees, public works department and law en-
forcement department."
Elected officials and employees can use the
cars to attend meetings on the Island, perform in-
spections, attend city functions and make trips to
the bank and post office, Whitmore said.

tired old tree was found

Its timing was perfect

U-12 Palma Sola Animal Clinic lost a close 2-1 de-
cision to Englewood in a game they feel was theirs for the
taking. They led 1-0 at half time on a goal from Sean
Pittman.
The Islanders notched that goal on some beautiful
passing between Michael Wallen, Courtney Taylor and
Skyler Purcell, who found Pittman cutting towards goal,
which he finished off with a nice left footer to the comer.
Early in the second half, an Englewood player got
loose on a breakaway and got fouled in the penalty box,
resulting in a penalty kick, which he finished to tie the
score at 1-1.
Nine minutes later, the same Englewood player again
got loose on a breakaway and finished it off for the game-
winning goal.
IFC continued to play hard and looked like they
would score several times towards the end of the game
with perhaps the best chance coming on a comer kick by
Purcell.
She sent a high cross into the goal mouth. Pittman
flew through the air and headed it, but it went just wide
of the goal, to the disappointment of the fans in attendance.
It was a tough loss but not one where you can say it
was because of poor effort. Every player played their
hearts out and left nothing on the field. Player of the game

Adult soccer disappointment
The IFC adults came into this week's game hoping to
atone for last week's poor effort against Nam Phong -
and in some ways they did.
Playing against first-place Sarasota Football Club
Aliens a team that won their last game by a score of 16-
0 the Islanders did indeed play much better. But the
effort was not quite good enough to win, as they fell by a
score of 3-1.
The game was a contrast of styles between IFC's
short passes and SFC, which used long passes from de-
fenders over the midfield and into the IFC defensive end.
This resulted in several fast break opportunities for Alien
forwards David Farmer and Chris Campbell.

SPORTS, FROM PAGE 19
The Aliens capitalized on one of those opportunities
in the 15th minute when Tony Louis-Charles came over
from his left fullback position to gather the ball in.
Louis-Charles started to dribble the ball out before
attempting a pass to Matt Bowers that got intercepted by
Farmer, who took it in on goal for a 1-0 Alien lead.
IFC didn't panic. The team continued to play the ball
on the ground and were getting good scoring opportuni-
ties. They were rewarded for their patience and scored the
equalizer five minutes later with an offensive push that
resulted in a corer kick. Kevin Cassidy took the kick and
found Jeff Nelson at the near post, where he poked the ball
in to tie the score 1-1, which held until halftime.
After playing tough, inspired soccer for 45 minutes,
the Islanders came out a bit flat in the opening minutes of
the second half and quickly surrendered a goal that came
on another long pass down field from the defense.
IFC sweeper Matt Bowers and SFC striker David
Farmer battled for the long through ball. Bowers knocked
Farmer off stride and to the ground, drawing the foul and
giving the Aliens a free kick from the top of the box.

Farmer, who displayed his speed in taking the ball up the
middle before stopping and cutting inside, where he ripped
a shot that beat Lindsey to the near post for a 3-1 lead the
Aliens would not relinquish.
IFC fought hard down the stretch to score but were
unable to do so, while Aliens also had more opportunities.
One opportunity came when the Aliens were awarded
a penalty kick. Fellowes took the kick amid a cry from the
sidelines crowd that Middlesboro, Fellowes' favorite team
in England, sucks! It obviously bothered Fellowes as his
penalty kick hit the upright to the delight and more
cheers of the crowd.
It was a tough loss but the Islanders got over it and
enjoyed a few beverages at O'Hara's Irish Pub with Alien
players afterwards. The IFC adults are looking forward to
their trip to the Sarasota Football Club next Sunday for a
1 p.m. game against the Hustlers.
The rest of the IFC teams are also in action with the
U-lOs playing a 9 a.m. game against Braden River at the
Center in Anna Maria. The U-12 team is out at Buffalo
Creek for a noon kickoff against Sarasota 3, while the U-
14 team travels to Cape Coral for a 2 p.m. kickoff.

Panhandle to Seaside: there's no place like home


The phrase, "No matter where you go, there'you
are," kept running through my head last week on a
high-speed trip through the Florida Panhandle.
Consider this: I checked into a beachfront motel on
Panama City Beach only to find a dredge anchored
offshore pumping sand onto a badly eroded beach -
just like on the Island five years ago.
Guests at the motel were complaining about the bull-
dozers that kept them awake at night as the sand was
spread along the shore -just like here five years ago.
And for some reason people kept stopping me to
ask about the dredge or the pipes or where the sand
came from or why it wasn't as white as it used to be or
S... well, you get the idea just like the reports we
provided you in The Islander Bystander five years ago.
Kinda like d6ja vu all over again.

Towers of Seaside
Not everything in the Panhandle mimics Anna
Maria Island life, though. For one thing, the "seasons"
are reversed. Florida's Redneck Riviera literally shuts
down after Labor Day, not to start again until Memo-
rial Day. An unofficial estimate would put about 50
percent of the businesses closed last week.
There also seems to be some pretty screwy zoning
laws in Panama City Beach. There were quaint
Gulffront bungalows next door to 30-story condos, and
300-seat restaurants interspersed with single-family
houses. The zoning maps must look like checkerboards
up there.
It was a little tacky, a little rough around the edges,
and wonderful.


Speaking of wonderful, I'm still trying to like the
village of Seaside. It's a community built 15 years ago
just west of Panama City that seems to be the delight
of architects and land-use planners worldwide.
As reported about the town in The Seaside Times,
"The accolades for town planning and urban design are
just this side of legendary and on a global scale. What
people get when they stay in Seaside for very long is
a sense of belonging. The town can fill a hole inside of
city dwellers and most of the rest of us who slowly
detach ourselves from civilization with technology.
Some folks never knew what a neighborhood was like
until they came to Seaside."
The town is about 10 blocks long and not quite four
blocks wide, generally centered around a town square.
Across the highway is the beach, with nine pavilions
leading down steep steps to the sandy shore. Included
in the town are tennis courts, playgrounds, shops, res-
taurants, art galleries and one of the most all-encom-
passing grocery stores I've ever been in.
The houses are small and tall, with tin roofs, wide
porches, picket fences and lots of cupolas and ginger-
bread.
The houses all have quaint names in addition to
street numbers Charlie, Pelican Perch, Oz, Navy
Baby, American Dream and Frumious Bandersnatch.


In short, Seaside is what I guess you could call
precious, and maybe that's why I felt just a little out of
place there. Everything is a little too contained, or-,
dered, sparkling and quaint. It's like Disneyworld for
grownups. I sort of expected to hear cherubs singing
"It's A Small World" piped through speakers as I went
up and down the streets.
Speaking of precious, that's the best word to de-
scribe what it costs to stay in Seaside. The cheapest -
although I'm sure Seasiders, as the residents call them-
selves, would use the phrase "affordable" seems to
be the Seaside Motor Courts, which go for $170 a
night.
For one of the funky houses, rates for the off sea-
son winter run as high at $791 a night. During
their busy summer season, look to drop $941 a night for
some places.
And for all you real estate agents, here's a few
prices to consider, keeping in mind that none of these
listings are on the Gulf:
663 square foot, one-bedroom, one-bath condo,
$310,000.
1,650 square foot, three-bedroom, three-bath
house, $575,000.
Residential lot, $750,000.
I liked my $50-a-night Gulffront motel room in
Panama City Beach just fine, by the way, even with the
bulldozers and dredging.

Sandscript factoid
This is probably one of those factoids you'd really
rather not know. A female mouse gives birth to six
young ones three weeks after mating. She is ready to
mate again in two days. She can produce six to 10 lit-
ters a year, and offspring are ready to mate in two
months. So, a single female's offspring can number as
many as 30,000 in one year.


Look familiar?

Anglers at the Anna Maria City Pier are reeling
in mackerel, redfish, a lot of snook one was 37 .
inches long and an occasional flounder.
Annie's Bait & Tackle said that Capt. Zack on the- -
Dee Jay II said Kyle Korabek, age 7, of Palm Harbor,
bested a five-pound pompano for his first fish. Another
charter, Allen Schram of Greensboro, N.C., had limited
catches of snook, trout and redfish last week, as well
as a few pompano and grouper.
Capt. Mike Card on the Flat-out Fun said he's
finding nice trout action in south Tampa Bay. Other
catches include pompano, trout, ladyfish and jacks at
the mouth of Terra Ceia Bay, and redfish in Sarasota Sandy, bullish shark
Bay.
Carl at Perico Harbor Bait & Tackle said fishing Mel Stowe caught this seven-foot-long, more-than-200-pound bull shark one night last week near the Rod and
has been off due to the high winds. Reel Pier in Anna Maria. Once the picture was taken, the shark was pushed back into the water.
