Money, character top Anna Maria pier talks


By Susan K. Kesselring
Islander Reporter
It was standing room only at Anna Maria City Hall
Tuesday, Jan. 12, for discussion on the city's pier lease.
Not since talk of enacting a curfew ordinance in
Anna Maria have so many people attended a commis-
sion meeting.
Phil and Ben Seay, lease-holders of the pier restau-
rant, and John Home, corporate president of Anna
Maria Oyster Bar Inc., operate the restaurant. They
have proposed changes to the lease agreement, which
expires Sept. 30.


The Seays and the city have joint options to renew
the lease. If an agreement can't be reached between the
parties, the lease will be put out for public bid.
A proposal submitted by the Seays includes
changes in the terms of the lease, including:
Term Five years with an additional three five-
year renewal terms with saihe rental terms and condi-
tions.
Rent Increased to $48,000 dollars annually.
Modifications Parking reconfigured to provide
ample parking for fishermen and patrons of restaurant.
Maintenance Exterior maintenance encom-


passing the pier, docks, pylons and pavilions, would
become the city's responsibility and tenant would be
responsible only for interior modifications.
Before opening the meeting to public comment,
Mayor Chuck Shumard said there is plenty of time to
reach an agreement. He said the purpose of the current
discussion is to get an idea where the public stands on
the lease renewal.
Many in the community came forward to speak
favorably on behalf of Home's character, ready to rally

Dale Marler has agreed to plead guilty to posses-
sion with intent to distribute marijuana and cocaine. He
has not been sentenced.
Marler, 56, formerly of 528 56th St., Holmes
Beach, was arrested in Palmetto Aug. 18 and charged
with intent to distribute marijuana and 500 grams or
more of cocaine. Federal agents, along with Manatee
County sheriff's deputies, arrested Marler after a four-
month investigation by four agencies.
Marler could face up to 20 years in prison and $ I
million in fines for the marijuana offense, and up to $2
million and 40 years in jail for the cocaine charges.
Prosecutors have indicated they will ask for reduced
sentences, though, since Marler has no prior convic-
tions and in view of his plea.


The Island businessman and community leader
made headlines statewide as foreman of the grand jury
that indicted the Rev. Henry Ilyons in Tampa. Lyons
was charged with tax evasion, extortion, conspiracy,
money laundering and hank fraud.
In the 1970s, Marler served as executive assistant
to then-U.S. Senator Lawton Chiles. He shared own-
ership with other family members in Buck Creek
Groves, was active in the Island Baptist Church and
served as a Little League coach at the Anna Maria Is-
land Community Center.
In recent years, the family opened a seasonal cit-
rus and vegetable business in Holmes Beach
Prosecutors say he distributed up to 200 pounds of
marijuana and 5,000 grams of cocaine in the past two
years, but Marler's attorneys dispute the quantities.

1999 goals pondered in Bradenton Beach


By Paul Roat
Everything from sidewalks to more erosion-con-
trol groins were offered as goals by residents for the
Bradenton Beach City Commission in 1999.
A handful of citizens offered their comments for
the commission to strive toward for the year. Com-
missioners agreed that adding sidewalks to the north
end of the city along Gulf Drive would be their top
priority for the upcoming year, and said they would
formulate a list of hopes shortly.
Resident and former city commissioner Jim.
Kissick said the three erosion control groins off
Cortez Beach must be maintained to ensure beach
stability. Manatee County Commissioners had con-
sidered removing the groins last year, then balked
with cost estimates to remove the structures were

support for Home. Phil Seay, who flew in from Atlanta,
was also present for the discussion.
Pierrette Kelly, executive director of the Anna
Maria Island Community Center, asked the commis-
sion to consider Home's contributions to the Center.
Kelly said Home gives of his time and money for spe-
cial events and fundraisers. The money and services
Home donates to the Center have a splash effect for the
city, she said, because the city doesn't have to give
extra money to the Center.
Kelly also applauded Home for rehabilitating some
of the Center's bad kids and helping them to go in the
right direction.
While the majority of the discussion focused on
plaudits for Home, there was some limited discussion
regarding the lease.
So far, the only term of the proposal that commis-
sioners expressed disagreement with is the dollar
amount offered for rent. While the proposed rent
amount doubles the tenant's present rent, some on the
commission feel it should be higher.
There was no discussion regarding the transfer of
responsibility from Home to the city for maintenance
of the pier.
Commissioner George McKay presented an offer to
renew the lease with an original term of seven years and
one five-year option to renew, including additional terms.
McKay came up with a figure of $72,000 for rent
with $7,000 per month paid during busy months and
$5,000 for the remaining months. Upon renewal of the
lease, rent would be increased to $93,600, with $9,048
paid during busy months and $6,552 paid rest of year.
Commissioner Robert McElheny said, "The only
thing we're going to argue about is money. We need to
reach a compromise that is fair and equitable."
"We've got to get a fair market value and he
[Horne] needs to stay in business," McElheny said.
Commissioner Doug Wolfe asked, "Is there any-
one in the audience who thinks the city should not re-
new the lease?"
No one responded.
The issue of how much money the city should re-
ceive for rent was also on the minds of residents. They
expressed views on both sides of the issue.
Resident John Bacich suggested the city compile
statistics from the other pier lease on the Island to see
if citizens are going to get a fair deal. He said, "If they
make money, then we should make money. I'm going
to follow that through to the end to make sure we get
a good shake."


prohibitive as were costs to rehabilitate them for
public use.
Kissick also urged more policing to halt speed-
ing in the south end of the city, and better north-
bound traffic flow from Gulf Drive at Cortez Road.
Resident James Royals said he was concerned
about above-ground irrigation lines causing a liabil-
ity problem for the city if someone tripped over the
thin pipes. He urged the commission to develop a
citywide survey of public and private property and
to aggressively enforce derelict vehicle laws.
Resident Ed Mihm said the city should develop
a plan to recycle water for irrigation.
Resident Jake Radojcsics said the city should de-
velop more civic pride. He said eyesores existed in
the city next to new developments and should be cor-

If you're journeying through the Island's neigh-
borhoods and spy an elderly woman with a chain
saw in tow, do not be alarmed.
There is a practical reason.
Louise Roby. 78. of Anna Maria, has maintained
a city easement in front of her home for years now,
though recently she purchased a chain saw to make
the task easier.
She said she once asked the city to help her
maintain the property but nothing came of it and she
decided to take matters into her own hands.
The 12-inch electric-powered chain saw makes
it easier for Roby to cut the limbs off trees and main-
tain the vegetation on her property, she said. She said
she used the chain saw to cut down a dead palm in
her center garden not so long ago.
Roby asked a lawn crew at a nearby job site for
the clippings from a tree that was cut down, which
she added to the compost pile in her front yard.
Roby, who celebrated her 78th birthday in Sep-
tember, has eight sisters, all reared on a farm in
Barryton, Mich. She has two children, son Robert
Dout, who lives in Orlando, Fla., and daughter Debra
Dout, living in San Franciso, Calif.
Before moving to Anna Maria Island in 1982,
Roby worked at Orlando Air Force Base as a clerk
typist and then for Sears as a supervising cashier,
where she spent 14 years. Besides attending to her
home, she spends time volunteering at the Anna
Maria Island Historical Society.
Recently Roby had a garage sale and she and her
sister Nadalyn Bacon put the chainsaw to use build-
ing sawhorses for a makeshift table.


Walter Storey said Manatee County had problems
when it raised the rent at the public beach. Money
shouldn't be the only item in the mix. Other factors
such as the tenant's track-record, qualifications and
experience should also be considered, he said.
Dale Powers, who owns Powers Plaza in Holmes
Beach, said it's counterproductive making somebody
pay more because they're successful.
He said the commission should consider setting a
rent where a person can afford to stay and not price him
or her out of business.
Shumard said the city wasn't hung up on money
only. The commission has done its homework, he said,


Historical society 'Remember


When Dinner' canceled this year


The Anna Maria Island Histortical
Society's board of directors recently voted to
cancel the annual Anna Maria Remember When
Dinner this year due to a lack of volunteers.
The dinners, which were revived by the so-
ciety from the Oldtimer's Reunions of the
1970s, had become an annual Island event.
Each dinner included an historical-themed mu-
sical production.


The 1996 event featured historical Island sto-
ries as told by Islanders performing as George
Emerson Bean, the Island's first homesteader,
and John Roser, builder of the Island's first
church, now the Roser Memorial Community
Church in Anna Maria City.
The 1997 program featured Island news
events through the years, and in 1998 a play de-
picted the history of the Island school.


reacted and improved.
Several residents said street flooding and poor
drainage should be corrected.
Resident Frank Banyas said noise from the
Bradenton Beach Marina was.a serious problem for
neighbors and should be corrected.
Resident Karen Reedy said sidewalks, especially
from city hall to Cortez Road, were needed.
Other problems residents offered included the
need for pedestrian crosswalks on Gulf Drive, bet-
ter traffic flow at the roundabout at Bridge Street and
Gulf Drive, dog waste, and noisy early morning
truck deliveries.
But resident John Sandberg probably best
summed up the goals needed by the city: "Make
Bradenton Beach the best it can be."

and is aware of what cities are receiving for rent.
In Bradenton Beach, the Bradenton Beach Pier &
Cafe Inc. has a franchise with the city to operate the
restaurant and bait shop on the city's fishing pier.
More than $100,000 was paid to the city for its
share of rent in 1998. The Bradenton Beach pier opera-
tors pay the city a flat fee of $1,000 a month or 12 per-
cent of gross sales, whichever is greater.
In 1995 Horne submitted a proposal offering the
City of Bradenton Beach $1,000 per month, or 15.5
percent of gross sales, whichever was greater, for its
pier franchise.
According to Home's projection of revenue, the
city would have netted $57,300 in 1995 if he held the
contract, versus the $44,700 the city received that year.
At that time, the Bradenton Beach commission
awarded the franchise to the lease-holder for terms
slightly lower than Home's offer, basing its decision on
the operator's past track record and character.
The day following the Anna Maria meeting,
Ralph Russell, owner of Rotten Ralph's restaurant in
Anna Maria, submitted a proposal to city hall with
identical terms to Hornes', but offering to pay sub-
stantially higher rent.
Russell proposes to pay the city $78,000 per year,
or $6,500 per month, which is closer to the McKay's
figures.
Shumard said the city is not accepting bids from
the public at this time, but would keep the proposal on
file if for some reason an agreement is not reached
between the city and current tenant.

Man who threatened officer's

life found guilty


A Manatee County jury last week found
Michael J. Chely, 53, of Bradenton, guilty of at-
tempted voluntary manslaughter of Bradenton
Beach Officer Charles Sloan.
Chely could have been convicted of at-
tempted second degree murder of an officer for
the incident in which he threatened Sloan's life.
The incident occurred on June 2, 1998, when
Sloan was flagged down by a man who had at-
tempted to aid the driver of a disabled vehicle on
Cortez Road West at 80th Street. The man said
he ceased his efforts after realizing that the
driver, Chely, was intoxicated.
'Sloan approached Chely and noted that he
appeared to be under the influence of a narcotic.
Sloan advised dispatch of the situation and asked
for a Manatee County sheriff's deputy to re-
spond. Sloan aided Chely, who was having
trouble maintaining his balance, to get back into


his vehicle.
When Sloan asked for Chely's driver's li-
cense he saw a bag of marijuana under Chely's
wallet and reached for it. Chely responded by
pulling a gun and pointing it at Sloan's head.
Slo-an wrestled with Chely, attempting to get the
gun away or to remove Chely's finger from the
trigger. After calling for help, Sloan was able to
draw his gun and disarm Chely.
Sloan ran a check on Chely and found he was
a convicted felon on federal probation for bank
robbery. Sloan received a commendation from
then-Chief Jack Maloney for his actions in arrest-
ing Chely.
Chely was also found guilty last week of bat-
tery on a law enforcement officer, carrying a con-
cealed weapon, resisting with violence, posses-
sion of marijuana and possession of drug para-
phernalia. Sentencing is slated within the month.


Clerk charged with selling minor alcohol


Roxanne A. Santana, 24, of Bradenton was
charged by Bradenton Beach police last week with
selling alcohol to underage persons.
Officer Charles Sloan said he received an anony-
mous complaint about a clerk at'Circle K selling al-
cohol to persons under 21. Sloan said on Jan. 8 he
asked a 20-year-old witness to attempt to purchase
beer. Sloan provided the witness with two marked $5
bills.
The witness said he first went to the Circle K at
2513 Gulf Drive, where the clerk refused to sell him
beer. The witness said he then went to the Circle K
at 100 Gulf Drive N., where Santana was working.
The witness reported he obtained a 40-ounce
bottle of beer and approached the register, where


Santana asked him if he had identification. The wit-
ness said he told her he did not and she asked him if
he was 21.
The witness told her he was 21 and she sold him
the beer.
Sloan said the witness left the store and gave him
the beer and the change from the $5 bill. Sloan said
he went into the store and interviewed Santana who
admitted making the sale.
Sloan contacted the store's manager, Vicki
Brady, who came to the store and fired Santana.
Sloan issued an appearance ticket to Santana.
Brady supplied Sloan with the register tape, the
marked $5 bill used for the sale and the store's vid-
eotape of the sale.

Density issue in motelier's request for 11 th unit


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The dreaded density issued raised its ugly head in
a recent debate over a Holmes Beach motel owner's
request to use an unpermitted unit.
"It may meet all the city's requirements such as
setbacks and height restrictions but it exceeds the den-
sity limitation," City Attorney Patricia Petruff advised
city commissioners. "I don't find anything in your code
that would provide you the opportunity to waive the
density requirement."
The issue involving the number of allowable rental
units at the Aquarius Beach Resort, 105 39th St., came
to the commission's attention in November.
The motel's owner, John Pace, said he has been
renting 10 units since he and his wife purchased the
property in 1991. His city license is for nine units but
he has changed the number on his license application
to 10 for eight years.
Pace said the city never questioned his alteration.
However, when he and his wife moved and their unit
became available, he changed the number to 11, which
did attract the city's attention.
According to city research, prior to 1981 the owner


Big band dance
canceled at Center
A big band dance scheduled for Thursday,
Jan. 21, at the Anna Maria Island Community
Center has been canceled.
The Center's board of directors agreed to can-
cel the dance and invite interested persons to at-
tend the Anna Maria Island Chamber of
Commerce's dance event featuring the same or-
chestra which they had scheduled. The chamber
event is Jan. 27 at St. Bernard Catholic Church.
For more information, call the chamber at 778-
1541. The Center can be reached at 778-1908.


was renting nine units and was living in one, or held it
out for a manager. The 11th unit was added in 1981 and
was approved by the city commission with a stipulation
that no more than 10 units be occupied.
The 1981 commission minutes state that the 1 lth
unit was to be used as a model to promote the sale of
timeshare units. It was to be turned into a recreation
room after the 10 units were sold.
In December, Building Inspector Bill Saunders
told commissioners that after researching the issue he
concluded that the 11th unit is not a separate, rentable
unit and that it is illegal.
In their first work session of the year, commission-
ers heard another plea from Pace.
"The 11th unit has been used as the owners' quar-
ters for the past 18 years, with the other 10 units
rented," Pace noted. "We have been honest about this
all along and have not done anything wrong. I request
that the city please recognize all the hard work we have
put into the property. This critically affects our eco-
nomic status."
The city file has no record of a building permit or
certificate of occupancy for the 1 Ith unit and no one
knows when the unit was converted, Petruff said.
"We cannot find that the city had any part in it
except for the fact that the city does not go door to door
and check for illegalities," Petruff noted. "At what
point does something that's illegal become OK to have
because we didn't discover it?"
Petruff said Pace's attorney asked her to consider
two legal theories equitable estoppel and latches.
Equitable estoppel has to do with a property owner
who has acted in good faith but is penalized because of
some act or omission by the government, Petruff said.
Due to his action, he has made a substantial change in
position or has incurred such extensive obligations and
expenses that it would be highly inequitable and unjust
to destroy the rights he has acquired.
"You would need to find that the act or omission
of the government would be your city's failure to dis-


cover that the 11th unit had been added or converted,"
Petruff explained.
Latches is a theory that too much time has passed;
therefore, the city somehow has waived its right to pro-
ceed with an enforcement case, Petruff said. That
theory is based on the issue of when the city had knowl-
edge, or should have had knowledge, that there was an
1 th unit.
"Based on the information I have, I don't see that
the city did anything incorrectly," Petruff noted.
Commissioner Roger Lutz called Pace an innocent
victim and said he would like to allow him to use the
11th unit if it's legally possible. Lutz asked about grant-
ing a special exception.
Petruff said the city's codes don't provide for that.
"If we let him use the 11Ith unit for an owner or
manager, does it make it indefensible for us to main-
tain our [density restriction of] 10 units per acre?"
Chairman Don Maloney asked Petruff.
Petruff said the commission could place stipula-
tions on the rental and include the history of the prop-
erty in a resolution.
"Mr. Pace's attorney said he may counsel his cli-
ent to call for an interpretation of whether or not any
of his theories apply," Petruff replied. "My idea is to
enter into a stipulated settlement in lieu of litigation and
try to put in as much information about the equities of
the situation without saying Mr. Pace or the city
dropped the ball."
Commissioners directed Petruff to draft two reso-
lutions one that would permit an owner or manager
to occupy the unit and one that would allow the unit to
be rented.
"An annual rental would be similar to an owner or
manager-occupied unit," Petruff noted. "It's a change
of use if it's a weekly or monthly rental. It becomes a
transient use."
Commissioners said they plan to discuss the resolu-
tions at the February work session and told Pace he can
continue to rent the 1 Ith unit until they make a decision.

Admiration for Snooks
When Chief W.H. "Snooks" Adams retired from
law enforcement, a grand affair feted his accomplish-
ments and people came from afar to show their appre-
ciation.
More than 300 people "filled the house" at Pete
Reynard's Restaurant on May 18, 1978, where $6.50
tickets included dinner, tip and tax.
Attendees signed a guest list that reads like a
"who's who" of Islanders. Many wrote congratulatory
letters and cards, and these items along with news clips,
snapshots and newspaper photographs taken for The
Islander fill a scrapbook that commemorates the event.
We can tell from the photos that the guests, fam-
ily, friends, co-workers, government officials and other
chiefs, sheriffs and police officers enjoyed a sumptu-
ous buffet including carved round of beef.
Snooks was honored by Master of Ceremonies
Manatee County Sheriff's Major Clyde Gill and a pa-
rade of speakers and finally passed his badge and con-
gratulations to his successor, Holmes Beach Det. Sgt.
Tom Shanafelt.
While our attention was drawn first to the pictures,
reflecting on the comments made by so many in letters
and cards revealed the real joy in this scrapbook the
admiration for a man we're so pleased to call a friend.
The late-Mayor Ernie Cagnina of Anna Maria:
"I have mixed emotions about tonight. When I ar-
rived on the Island in 1946 you were the law enforce-
ment officer then. Somehow it will not be the same to
have you officially out of the law enforcement busi-
ness.
"On behalf of the Anna Maria City officials and the
citizens of our city, I want to try in some small way to
express the gratitude we all feel for the help, coopera-
tion, reassurance and compassion you have always
shown for our Island.
"You may be retiring, but you will always be Chief
'Snooks' to us. May you have as many good, healthy
and happy years in retirement as you have had in serv-
ing all of us."
U.S. Rep. Andy Ireland:
"The admiration held for you by fellow police of-
ficers has been evident through the years. A chief could
ask for no higher tribute than the respect of other po-
licemen and a feeling of confidence on the part of the
citizens who rely on him."
Lewis Cooksey:
"You've done a lot for us all in helping to make
this an ideal place in which to live."
Holmes Beach Mayor Charlotte Long:
"At this time of your retirement, as you look
back upon your career, you should feel great satis-
faction in knowing you have contributed much to

law enforcement.
"The City of Holmes Beach is indeed grateful to
you for the establishment of a police department that
is respected by law enforcement agencies in the area
and is afforded fine stature by our residents."
Florida Rep. Patrick Neal:
"I have no doubt that you have been an important
force to keep crime contained in the city and I know
that the City of Holmes Beach does not have the prob-
lems that some of the other Manatee County munici-
palities have.
"You will be sorely missed not only for your duties
but your warm and congenial personality about city hall."
Longboat Key Police Chief Wayne McCammon:
"In your over 20 years of policing you have com-
piled a reputation worthy of your efforts and character.
You are lauded not only by your friends and peers, but
also by the citizen who knows you only by name. I
hope to have done as well when my time to make way
for another man arrives.
"Those of us who continue to serve will miss your
frankness, your input, your probing questions that so
often helped to clarify hazy situations, but most of all
we will miss you."
Manatee County Sheriff's Major Clyde Gill:
"In my years of law enforcement, you have been
one of my best friends and I have admired and used you
as an idol. It takes a person with your caliber to survive
the political whims and the changes in the laws these


20 some years in law enforcementt"
And finally, from the late-author Wyatt
Blassingame:
"So you are finally throwing in the towel!
"Well, you've lasted longer than Superman could
have, and done a better job probably. Think of the
mayors you've lived through or had you rather not.
Some of these were mayors to try men's souls all right,
not to mention council members.
"You'd have made a wonderful Secretary of State.
Anybody who could sit between Jim Zerby [Holmes
Beach mayor] and Dick Connick [Bradenton Beach
mayor] and keep his cool could have quieted Hitler,
Stalin and Richard Nixon.
"Happy fishing."
A photo in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune the next
day titled "Changing of the guard," showed Snooks
handing over his badge to Shanafelt and says, "Adams,
a native of Manatee County who started his police ca-
reer in the 1950s, took the events in his slow, easy,
Southern manner smiling at the turnout and ex-
changing kind words with his admirers."
While we weren't there, count us too, admirers.
Snooks comments at the ribbon-cutting were
humbled, saying what an honorable and gracious thing
it was for the city to name the police facility for him.
Somehow we feel honored too, and a new sense of
pride in Holmes Beach for bestowing the honor on
someone so deserving.



Holmnes Bealch Chief
Snooks Adams passed his
gold badge and congratu-
lations to his successor,
Det. Sgt. 7Tom Shanafelt, at
his Alav 18. 1978, retire-
inent party.

THOSE WERE THE AIYS
Part 15, The Life and Loves of Hernando De Soto
by June Alder


Hernando
De Soto's
fleet of
nine
vessels
sailed for
Florida in
April 1538.
Everyone
expected to
come home
rich.


HOW ARE THINGS


IN GOMERA?


The tiny tropical island of Gomera
off the coast of Africa was the jumping
off point for Hernando De Soto's fleet
bound for Florida in 1538. To Isabel De
Bobadilla, Hernando's new wife, it was
the perfect spot to throw a party.
The governor of Gomera, Count
Guill6n Peraza de Ayala, happened to be
a cousin of hers. He was a bon vivant
and a dandy. He appeared at the wharf
dressed all in white white cloak,
whitejerkin, white hose, shoes and cap.
("He looked like a governor of Gyp-
sies," someone commented.)
He loved parties. Isabel's.wishes
were his command..A thousand guests,
did you say? Not to worry, dear cousin.
It was a glittering guest list that Isabel
passed on to the count. First of all, there
were Hernando's officers. Some of his top
men were comrades from his campaign in
Peru: Nufio de Tovar, his lieutenant gen-
eral; Luis Moscoso Alvarado, camp mar-
shal and supply officer; Juan Rodriguez
Lobillo, captain of infantry.
A good many members of the De
Soto clan signed on: Carlos Enrfquez,
his brother-in-law (married to De Soto's
sister); Captain Diego De Soto, a
nephew; Friar Luis de Soto, a nephew;
-and Arias Tinoco, Alonso Romo and
Diego, cousins on his mother's side.
Many a noblemen paid a bribe for
the privilege of being part of the adven-
ture. Some sold their farms and houses
to go with De Soto. One blueblood gave
up a lucrative church "living," while his
brother sold off a whole village. The
treasurer of the expedition won his po-
sition through the influence of his uncle,
a cardinal.
Some of the officers brought their
wives. Hernando's sister went along
with her husband. So did the spouse of
Baltasar de Gallegos, chief magistrate.
A contingent of clergymen of high
degree were among the company. And
of course Isabel had her ladies-in-wait-
ing, all chosen for their good breeding
and amiability.
The visiting gentlewomen were in
demand in the drawing rooms of the
town's matrons, who were eager for
gossip about the court in Seville and
news about the latest fashions. Isabel
brought along some of her best finery
for the occasion, including the dress of
scarlet brocade that she had worn when


the expedition sailed from Seville.
The governor's celebration began
with a lavish parade with acrobats and
musicians. The whole town turned out
for it along with every soldier, sailor
and servant from the expedition.
During the day the visitors were
entertained at tournaments and horse
races. At night there was a constant
round of dinner parties for the upper
crust where lively senoritas danced
their traditional dances to the rhythms
of drums and castanets, and throaty
singers performed popular songs called
folfas to the accompaniment of guitars.
Among the soldiers, gambling and
drinking at the establishments along
the waterfront went on until the stars
dimmed.
The count and his wife kept their
home open for the visitors. They had
eight children, among them a 17-year-
old beauty who attracted the attention
of Hernando's junior officers. Isabel
grew very fond of her and asked her
husband if she could take Leonor along
with her to Havana. Hernando was not
receptive to the idea.
It took eight weeks to get the fleet
ready to cross the Atlantic with nearly
a thousand passengers. Hernando
made one last inspection and an-
nounced they would weigh anchor on
April 24.
There were regretful farewells be-
tween the expeditioners and friends
they had made on the island. The
Gomera children were glum and tear-
ful especially Leonor, who wept on
Isabel's shoulder. Isabel gave
Hernando a beseeching glance, and
once more begged him to allow Leonor
to go along. Not wanting to deny Isabel
any wish, he at last relented.
Leonor had her bags packed -
just in case. She kissed her family
goodbye and raced up the gangplank at
the last minute, waving from the deck
until she could no longer see her loved
ones waving back at her.
Sad to say, Hernando would rue
his decision. It had grave consequences
for himself, his expedition and for the
naive young girl.

Thanks
To the Honorable Mayor Carol Whitmore,
The Honorable City Commissioners,
Chief of Police Jay Romine,
the Holmes Beach Police Department and all others
involved ...
I want to personally thank each of you for my-
self, my wife Elizabeth and the rest of my family and
friends for honoring me with naming the police fa-
cility after me. I think it's an honorable and gracious
thing and I am truly humbled. It was with great pride
that I served the City of Holmes Beach for many
years.

Aerial view shows erosion
control groins do retain sand
Editor's Note: The following letter was addressed to
the Manatee County Commission.
On the morning of Jan. 14, I was privileged, for
a period of two hours, to fly at reasonably low alti-
tude six times from mid-Longboat Key to Holmes
Beach over a path just offshore. Below, seas were
calm and buildings in Tampa clearly visible. This
letter is offered for your information and consider-
ation regarding past reports of the commission's
concern for the future of erosion control groins, par-
ticularly three protruding from Cortez Beach.
May I reiterate that when I went off to World
War II, the current Gulf Drive was called Fourth
Avenue, and there existed a Third, Second, First and
150 yards of sand to its west. Yet, when I returned
in 1946, the Gulf of Mexico was seriously undermin-
ing Fourth Avenue at Sixth Street South, had re-
duced it to one lane, and the road terminated at 13th
Street South because a 3-foot-deep, 60-foot-wide
boat channel had been washed from Gulf to Bay at
the north end of what is now Coquina Beach.
Circa 1991, $13.1 million was spent to
"renourish" our beach, adding 300 feet of new sand
from Fourth Street South north to about the Holmes
Beach-Anna Maria city line. In what has to be one
of the most stupid moves of the century, an addi-
tional erosion control groin near the S-curve near
22nd Street was eliminated from the plan at the in-
sistence of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers which,

to compensate, agreed to taper the fill from Fourth
to 13th Street South rather than have an abrupt ter-
mination. This act, among other deficiencies, created
an obtuse funnelpoint at 13th Street South, the low-
est, narrowest, most-vulnerable point on Anna Maria
Island and the site of the filled-in with soft sand
- boat channel. The wisdom of this decision was
quite evident at 7 a.m. March 13, 1993, when huge
numbers of Longboat Key voluntary evacuees were
trapped by a high tide and 70-knot direct-onshore
winds.
My Jan. 14 observations verified immense con-
cern for and verification of the above. The widest
point of remaining renourishment sand, nearly all of
it, is around the base of the Sixth Street South groin
with little notable erosion of the tapered section
around 10th and 13th Street groins. The only other
area of minimal erosion was around the groin at
Manatee Beach in Holmes Beach. The area of worst
erosion was at the S-curve in the 2200 block, where
the Gulf has partially carried away a wooden,
county-installed ramp at Katie Pierola Sunset Park
and tides are against the rocks protecting the adja-
cent motel. Also, Gulf water was splashing against
rocks protecting the Beach House restaurant, having
reclaimed that 300 feet of sand.
Tragically, there seems no solution to the area
immediately south which, for years, was known as
the bayou. Although its existence is verifiable by
rock revetments protruding above new sand and
from numerous citizens' statements, documents
from the Florida Department of Environmental Pro-
tection in Tallahassee officially conclude the very
valuable waterfront property as such as existed for
years, not as open water. Designating an erosion
control line was to have established the termination
of deeded ownership and commencement of DEP
jurisdiction at the location of pre-nourishment's
mean high water mark.
Yet, official "verification" established the new
erosion control line near the bayou's western edge,
not at the actual previous high water location, yield-
ing ownership of the pumped-in land to the upland
property owner. Official diagrams and gubernatorial
certification thereof are available upon your request.
You are urged to take the proven extreme neces-
sity for and value of erosion control groins into all

'Horse' no mystery
The Trojan Horse sculpture that was stolen from
the Robert Sailors Cortez school house was found in
the apartment of Robert Goodman chained to a safe in
Bradenton Beach.
Goodman, being a Cortez fisherman, surely
knew the home of the sculpture that he claimed he
purchased.
Where is the receipt? He should be charged with
theft and possession of stolen goods.
Mystery solved.

Dog Kennel Lane?
Regarding your article on the flooding on 56th
Street, 56th Street is known for three things:
1. An above-average flood area, always has been.
The houses sit much lower than on most streets. Been
like this for over 30 years.
2. 56th is known on the Island as Dog Kennel Lane
because of all the barking dogs that live there.
3. A street where it is hard to sell a home because
of the first two reasons.

Players 'Last of Red Hot Lovers' pretty cool


By Charmaine Engelsman-Robins
Islander Correspondent
Evoking nostalgia along with laughs, the Island
Players present Neil Simon's "Last of the Red Hot
Lovers" through Jan. 31.
Set in 1969 in the East Thirties apartment of the
mother of lead character Barney Cashman, the play in
three acts covers three attempts by 40-something-ish
Cashman (played by John Pope) to make his maiden
voyage into adultery following 23 years of marriage to
his high school sweetheart.
In the first act, Mona R. Upp (celebrating a birth-
day the Sunday we attended) portrays tough "I'm here,
let's get to it" Elaine Navazio as the Lady in Red who
is Cashman's original intended conquest. The inappro-
priate attempt at coupling their dissonant personalities
is obvious when Cashman delivers a long, heart-felt
monologue-explanation of what kind of person he is,
to which Navazio responds, "So that's why you wanted
to get laid?"
In Act II, Cashman enters mama's apartment
slightly more confident and better prepared than in his
initial foray, bearing two kinds of booze and four kinds
of cigarettes in his briefcase, the lack of which annoyed
the previously targeted Navazio.
Enter the incredibly crazy and funny second object
of his "affection:" mini-skirted, flower child actress-
slash-lounge-singer Bobbi Michele, played by Robin
Rhodes. (In this and other performances Rhodes dis-
plays more than a touch of a young Diane Keaton.)
Definitely the funniest and strongest of the three
acts, Michele's pot-smoking paranoia stories had the
audience in stitches, as did Cashman's responses to the
incidents and revelations. Though it isn't definitively
stated before the lights go down, it's obvious that this
stab at infidelity was no more successful than the first.
In the final installment of the performance,
woman number three is Jeanette Fisher (played by Jo
Kendall). A friend of Mrs. Cashman, she made a
play for Mr. Cashman at a couples dinner party the
week before. The Fisher character is so hysterically
tense she makes a dangerously over-wound watch-
spring appear limp and lucid.


Barney Cashman (John Pope) has a tough time accomplishing his goal with Jeanette Fisher (Jo Kendall), one
of three pick-up dates in Island Players "Last of the Red Hot Lovers." The play is a repeat production for
Island Players, originally presented in the 1970s and offered again in celebration the theater's 50th anniver-


sary. Islander Photo: Bonner Presswood
She's a hoot, brandishing a bout with depression
that could make Hamlet squirm. Although Cashman
arrives at mama's empty apartment much better pre-
pared for this round toting in a bottle of champagne,
a flashy plaid sport coat, and a lot of attitude by the
time Mrs. Fisher gets done telling him how rotten the
world is she's pretty much killed the mood, which leads
to some insightful debate between the characters in
which they acknowledge who the only truly decent
people they know are.
I wanted to take up residence in the adorable set
designed by John Flannery, with lighting design by


Glenn Markos aided by lighting technician Ruth
Stevens. It's amazing what the talented folks at the Is-
land Players can do with this limited space! Costume
designer Don Bailey and make-up and hair designer
Rita Kane totally nailed the late-60s look, from the
evolution of Mr. Cashman right through the red-hot-
mama, dingbat ingenue, and up-tight housewife female
characters.
Director Phyllis Elfenbein does her usual outstand-
ing job, as do all the unsung-hero-behind-the-scenes

which one will get the donation this year has not been
decided. Last year the $450 proceeds went to the Pri-

workers, whose worthy works were acknowledged
before the first act by stage manager Dorothy Eder.
The work of sound designer Ed Brown and fellow
sound technician Dick Lawall was especially appre-
ciated in the second act, and props-woman and Play-
ers Chair Dolores Harrell made significant contribu-
tion to the production. Kudos to assistant stage man-
agers Marilyn Moroni and Ruth Stevens, too.
Though the first act felt a bit draggy and stiff,
there's still much to like here, especially if you're a
Neil Simon fan; you'll undoubtedly enjoy this offer-
ing of his work, dealing with a New Yorker dealing
with a mid-life crisis at the end of the sixties.
The Island Players last presented this production
in its 1972-73 season, by the way, and it's the third
production of the 50th year of performances on the
Island.
Curtain times are 8 p.m., except for a Sunday
matinee at 2 p.m. on Jan. 24. A Sunday performance
on Jan. 31 is at 8 p.m. There are no performances on
Monday.
The box office is open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and
an hour before each performance. Tickets are $12
each. Details are available at 778-5755.

Island coach in big league press


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Brad Lisk was just doing what he loves, and he
ended up with more credit than he ever anticipated.
He is a longtime coach in the Anna Maria Island
Little League, doing his service at the Community
Center and switching to soccer when the Little League
season ends.
He was coaching his Quality Builders team last
spring when he caught the eye of a "snowbird," Bill
Byham of South Williamsport, Pa. Byham was here
with his wife and two other couples for their annual
March on Anna Maria.
A chill chased them off the beach and the men took
in a Little League game, a natural since Byham has
long been associated with Little League and has been
with the broadcast team covering the Little League
World Series.
He was so impressed with the Anna Maria coach
that he put his admiration on paper, and the result was
printed in no less than the 1998 World Series edition
of Little League Magazine.
"The young man said only what was positive," he
wrote of Lisk, "he only handed out help and praise and
as he took his team to their dugout he made sure that
he talked to each and every one of them one on one.
Not loudly but more like friend to friend, calming,
positive and caring."
The writer described the encouragement "Millie"
got from the coach, how he finally talked her courage
up so she batted with her eyes open and scored a hit.
"It was pure joy to watch that little girl running, jump-
ing and giggling all the way to first."
The 2,000-word article concluded: "Little League
talks strongly about character, loyalty and courage as
foundations of the program. In Brad Lisk we saw all
three at work."
Lisk said he has coached for four years and assisted
three years before that. Reared on Anna Maria and

Quality Builder Coach Brad Lisk, as featured in the pages of Little League Magazine, 1998 World Series editiWith
1999's Little League registration just days away, it seems fitting to recognize Lisk's and to remind all inter-
ested players that sign-up is Saturday, Jan. 23, from 10 a.m. to I p.m.; Friday, Jan. 29, from 6-8 p.m.; Satur-
day, Jan. 30, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.; and Wednesday, Feb. 3, from 6-8 p.m. on.


Longboat Key, "I played on the same field as a kid."
His parents had a grocery store on Longboat for
years, he recalled, and "they were big on their kids
growing up on the Island. I have twins now, 9 years
old, and I feel the same way as my parents. My wife
and I have lived in Bradenton Beach for 12 years, and
that's on purpose."
Both work in Bradenton. Lisk has been a buyer for
both Wellcraft and Donzi, now has become a purchas-
ing agent for a boat industry supply house. "But my
bosses let me have time to coach."
He was nominated for Coach of the Year for Little
League's Southeast U.S. Region, and feels the article
may have been a result of that.
His ambition now is to take a team to the Little
League Series in author Byham's hometown.

David Ambrose is a cooking winner again, this
time first prize in the Smucker's Toys R Us national
recipe contest.
Last spring he was a finalist in the "Just Add Pride"
cooking contest using Odom's Tennessee Pride sau-
sage in a Nashville cookoff.


Piia Colada
Cookies
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 large egg, beaten
1 tsp. rum extract
1/2 cup Smucker's pineapple topping
3/4 cup flaked coconut
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
Flaked coconut for cookie topping
Smucker's pineapple topping to crown cookies (the rest
of 11.75 oz. jar)


He started cooking at age 15, worked in restaurants
and owned his own in Atlanta before selling it and
moving to Holmes Beach for good two years ago.
The contest which he won this time around re-
quired using Smucker's ice cream.toppings in a differ-
ent way. Here's how he took the top prize:

Cream together the butter, cream cheese and sugar.
Blend in egg and rum extract. Add Smucker's pine-
apple topping and blend well.
Combine dry ingredients and add one-third at a
time, mixing well after each addition. Add the coconut
and blend well.
Cover and chill for several hours or overnight.
When completely chilled: Preheat oven to 375 de-
grees Farenheit. Drop by teaspoons onto ungreased,
nonstick baking sheet or lightly greased, metal baking
sheet. Sprinkle each cookie with coconut. Bake 10-12
minutes or until light brown.
While warm, with a wooden spoon make an indenta-
tion about the size of a dime in the middle of each cookie.
Let cool slightly before removing from cookie sheet.
When cool: Spoon Smucker's pineapple topping
into the indentation in each cookie.

Honoree Snooks Adams reflects on police years


By David Futch
Islander Reporter
Willis Howard "Snooks" Adams put his life on the
line several times for Anna Maria Islanders and west
county residents. All in the line of duty.
Like a modern-day Wyatt Earp brought in to clean
up the town. Adams spent more than 26 years protect-
ing the people and the island he loves.
Adams was honored last weekend for his dedica-
tion to his community when Holmes Beach named its
police department facilities at new city hall after him.
Ribbon-cutting ceremonies and open house on Fri-
day and Saturday for city hall and the Willis H.
"Snooks" Adams Police Facility were attended by hun-
dreds of residents.
Adams was born April 24, 1917. in Cortez but
spent much of his life on Anna Maria Island as a po-
lice chief who used common sense as his guide.
Snooks was the first police chief of Holmes Beach
and served 16 years. By the time he retired in 1978, he
had built it into a seven-man force.
He was and is a friend to Island children. Eor the
past 42 years he's helped put on Snooks Adams Kid's
Day at the end of the school year, when hundreds of
children play at Bayfront Park while eating free hot
dogs and drinking Coca-Cola.
Yet it was not all fun and games during the early years
of incorporation of Bradenton Beach and Holmes Beach.
There were about 40,000 people in Manatee County
in the early 1950s when Adams served as assistant police
chief of Bradenton Beach and was a deputy sheriff
charged with patrolling the western reaches of the county.
He was the only law enforcement officer on the island
during those rough and tumble times.
Adams' first taste of policing came when he was
asked by Sheriff Roy Baden to help clean up Manatee
County.
"There were some rough joints in the eastern part
of the county, one in Palmetto, one in Samoset and one
off 29th Street just outside the Bradenton city limits,"
Adams said. "People would get drunk and fight and
tear up stuff. Most of 'em either died or went to prison.
They were a rough group."
Not to Adams and some rather large deputies who
knew how to get rough themselves.
In time, some of the same toughs showed up on
Anna Maria Island, specifically the Miramar in
Bradenton Beach.
"I told the bartender and the owner at the Miramar
that they were not to serve these characters. Then I told
each one of those tough guys they were not welcome
on this Island," Adams said. "They learned pretty quick
that when I come into a place and told them they bet-
ter get out that I meant it, because either me or Rusty
Taylor or Bud Hammock, both of 'em about 225
pounds, would knock 'em down and tear their ass up."
Adams was no slouch himself at 195 pounds and
arms like oak branches.
"I was in great shape. My arms were big from
working construction and pulling nets most of my life,"
he said. "I ate well. A lot of seafood."
Adams also had a little helper whenever he ran into
some uncooperative troublemaker.
The helper's name was iron claw, a device that
would fit in well in a medieval dungeon. Snooks had


The Island's first law enforcement officer was honored when the Holmes Beach Police Department was
named in his honor the W.H. "Snooks" Adams Police Facility. Islander Photo: Bonner Presswood


another name for the claw.
"I called it a 'come-along' because when I put it on
someone's wrist or ankle, they came along with me,"
he said. "They're outlawed now. People said they were
too painful but I guarantee you they work. Nobody
gave you an argument."
The iron claw is a sort of handcuff with a thumb-
screw at the top. When applied and screwed down, the
claw tended to do some severe nerve damage.
Anyone who wants to see the claw just need visit
the new police offices at city hall. Adams has donated
the claw and some of his billy clubs he used to clean
up the beach.
For a little irony, Adams police badge number dur-
ing his stint as a deputy sheriff and policeman was 007.
"I was 007 before James Bond was." he said. "It's
still my number as one of the original founders of the
Privateers."
Adams moved to Bradenton Beach in 1947 and
later bought a home in Holmes Beach where he and
wife Liz still live.
Adams and Leon Stafford started the first fire de-
partment in Bradenton Beach with Stafford as chief and
Adams as assistant chief. Adams helped build the
Bradenton Beach fire house, still in operation today.
He worked for the Island Erosion Board and
helped build all the groins that ran down the Gulf
side of the Island.
"I drove down wood piles and put rocks in there
around them," he said. "They weren't put there to build
up the beach but to save what was there. We had bad
erosion back then. "
Adams is credited with helping set up the first
Veterans of Foreign Wars post just after World War II
and was commander three times during the 1950s.
Above all, "my job was to take care of the Island."
"I arrested people according to the way they acted
or what they had done," Adams said. "I always be-


Holmes Beach Chief Snooks Adams procured the first radar gun in Manatee County for his department. He
was also the first to be certified in its operation.


lived that when you did more harm than good by an
arrest, you made a bad arrest. I still believe that.
"When I was policing, if someone was drunk, then
being drunk was about all I ever charged someone
with," Adams said. "Today if someone gets drunk and
gets arrested they charge them with DUI, resisting ar-
rest, resisting arrest with violence and a lot of other
things when it's all just being drunk.
"There'd be men who you knew when they got
their paycheck were going to go out, get drunk and
spend money they ought to be spending on their fam-
ily. I would just take them home. I figured, why deprive
a family of another $25 in fines.
"Sometimes I'd go into a bar and tell them to give me
their car keys and I'd send for a police car to take them
home. Or I'd take their distributor wire off the engine."
However, there were the times that required tough-
ness. He was involved in three shootouts and was shot
in one of them.
He said he was shot at 30 times on Cortez Road, tak-
ing a bullet in the left forearm. Years later the same man
tried to kill him at point-blank range. Snooks blew the left
side of his face off with a 12-gauge shotgun. Shot the
man's left ear off. He's still in prison serving 100 years.
Another man shot the window out of his cruiser. A
Palmetto man tried to reach inside the window of his
car to cut his throat and Adams shot him.
"It went right in his mouth and ran along his teeth,
chipping some of them, and came out his cheek," he
said. "But I've never been hurt as bad on the job as I
have been by women. I tried to get a drunk woman out
of the front of her car by pulling on her ankles and she
kicked me with her high heel shoes and broke four ribs,
two on each side."
Two fugitives from Baltimore stole a car and were
headed to Bradenton from West Palm Beach. Adams
and another officer stopped them and one of them
pulled a gun.
"He pointed the gun at us and said, 'I'll kill you.
I'll kill both of you.' and I said, 'I know you will.' I
tackled him. That was my last time."
Adams got his nickname from his Aunt Gracie
when he was two years old.
Fanny Bryce was at the height of her comedic ca-
reer and she did a routine with a character she named
Baby Snooks. She did both voices. The voice of Baby
Snooks was quite loud and so was the voice of Baby
Snooks Adams, his aunt reasoned.
Snooks recalls that when he was a boy, he and his
brothers would visit their Aunt Sally and her husband
Jack Moore. The Moores and their children started
Moore's Stone Crab Restaurant and lived just over the
humpback bridge at the north end of Longboat Key.
He recollects Lake LaVista in Anna Maria didn't
open into Tampa Bay in the 1920s and was a brackish
body of water filled with alligators and small tarpon.
"We'd swim with the alligators. They had plenty
of food and wouldn't bother us. There were little, tar-
pon you could catch."
Snooks remembers it all.
Holmes Beach and Anna Maria Island thank you,
Chief Snooks Adams.

Island Sports

I The week
that was...
By Kevin P. Cassidy


Basketball, soccer
tops this week
It was another great week of sports on the Island with
a full slate of basketball games in three divisions and Is-
land Football Club action. I went to a couple of games this
week and picked through the scorebook to come up with
my "games of the week."

Lowman leads Marlins to victory over Sonics
Ten-year-old Greg Lowman scored 12 fourth-quarter
points to lead the Marlins on a six-point run and pull out
a win over the Sonics at the Jan. 12 Division I game. De-
fense keyed the run as Lowman, Kyle Schweitzer and
Courtney Taylor each came up with steals to help the
Marlins pull away after the they'd tied the game at 14 all.
Lowman who finished with 21 points won the
Division II MVP last year and could have returned as the
favorite to win it again. He instead chose to play up in the
11- to 13-year-old Division I and take his licks along the
way.
It's not Lowman who's taking the licks though, as he
looked like the best player on the court, knocking down
jump shots, getting rebounds or making good passes to his
teammates for easy baskets.
Supporting Greg Lowman was older brother Aaron,
d- who scored 10 points. Schweitzer finished with six.
Leading the way for the Sonics were Daniel

PAL #1 57, Anna Maria Oyster Bar 32
PAL #1 rode a balanced scoring attack to record a 25-
point win over the Oyster Bar as four players scored in
double figures. Gerald Clark led the way for PAL with 15
points, while Depree Bowden added 11. Phillip Garner
and Comelious Laguerre each scored 10 points for PAL,
who also got seven points from Rickie Simmons and four
from Sharielle Smith.
Darrell Collins paced Oyster Bar with 13 points,
while Joey Mousseau and Nick Schweitzer scored six and
five points respectively.
Speaking of Nick Schweitzer, he is dominating the
50-50 drawings held at half-time of each game at the Cen-
ter. Tuesday, Jan. 12, 1 saw Schweitzer twice win the
Drawing for an opportunity to attempt a half-court shot,
and to win half of the proceeds from the sale of raffle tick-
ets.
Winning the drawing twice in one night is a feat in
and of itself, but Schweitzer topped that by actually mak-
ing the shot twice to walk off with more than $60.
Talking to him and his younger brother Kyle, I
learned that he also won the drawing and made the half-
court shot the previous Saturday. Rumor has it he's think-
ing of quitting his job to devote himself to the 50-50 draw-
ings.
Here are the Division II games of the week. I really
had a hard time narrowing down the many games played
for the space available here.

Island Football Club stinks
in 2-2 tie
Islander Bystander/O'Hara's adult soccer team stunk
- literally during its 2-2 tie with Nam Phong Jan. 17
at G.T. Bray Park in Bradenton. That's because IFC striker
Lance Bieker forgot the team uniforms were in the back
of his truck all week, since the soccer team's 2-1 win over
Largo Budweiser.

THE ISLANDER BYSTANDER 0 JANUARY 20, 1999 0 PAGE 25 I[ "


SPORTS, FROM PAGE 24
Man-of-the-match typically does the laundry, but last
week's winner Brett Mclntosh conveniently left the uni-
forms in Bieker's truck as he has other times he won
the award.
The Islanders odoriferous state must have offended or
affected the referee, because he did his best to remove IFC
players from the game, handing out 12 cards including
four reds. This left the Islanders playing seven against 11,
which was a major disadvantage to overcome.
The suspensions also adversely effected the Islanders
going into next week's rematch against rival Sarasota
Football Club's Aliens a game IFC has been looking
forward to since its 3-1 loss at home earlier in the season.
The Islanders fell behind early in the game when
Kevin Cassidy let Hoanh Nguyen get past him with a
through ball. The play started with the Islanders working
the ball out of their defensive end.
IFC goalie and man-of-the-match Scott Lindsey
threw the ball out to Cassidy on the right edge of the goalie
box. Cassidy carried the ball forward before passing to
Brett McIntosh who attempted to square the ball inside to
Raul Gomez, but his pass was tipped, then intercepted by
Nam Phong defender Chau Nguyen.
Chau Nguyen quickly seized the counterattack oppor-
tunity by hitting a through ball to Hoanh Nguyen, who
beat Cassidy to the ball and carried it into the box before
beating a hard-charging Lindsey far post for a 1-0 lead.
The Islanders came back to tie the score 15 minutes
later when Ken Bowers got fouled 35 yards from the goal.
Gomez took the kick and found Jeff Nelson stationed at
the far post. Nelson settled the pass from Gomez with his
thigh before ripping a shot that beat Nam Phong goalie

Kien Nguyen to the near post to make the score 1-1, which
held until the half.
Ken Bowers and Shawn Dibble hooked up on a scor-
ing play in the first few minutes of the second half. Bow-
ers received the ball on the left side of the midfield stripe
and spotted Dibble making a run up the right side.
Bower's pass went over Nam Phong defender Hai
Nguyen's head to Dibble, who carried the ball in on goal.
Nam Phong goalie Kien Nguyen came off his line to chal-
lenge Dibble for the ball but Dibble shot and found the far
corner of the goal to give the Islanders the lead, 2-1.
The Islanders picked up their play and looked like
they had a good opportunity when Nelson sent a high ball
toward the center of the goal area. Bill Romberger went
in for the ball a bit late and collided with the goalie, result-
ing in his receiving his second yellow card which sent him
out of the game.
With the Islanders now a man short. Nam Phong
came back to tie the score on a counter attack. The ball
came through the middle and was passed to Son Nguyen
at the top of the box. His shot beat Lindsey in goal but the
ball hit the post and rebounded to Hoang Nguyen. Hoang
then centered the ball to Thao Nguyen, whose shot beat
Lindsey making the score 2-2. That was the final score,
but not before a flurry of unjustified cards issued by the
referee left the Islanders with only seven players remain-
ing to scramble on defense.
The Islanders displayed a lot of heart to hang tough
defensively and keep Nam Phong from scoring the go-
ahead goal. Everyone on the field played tremendous soc-
cer, especially Lindsey in goal who kept the Islanders in
the game with a stellar save on a point-blank shot by Thao
Nguyen.
The tie leaves the Islanders' record at 7-4-3 going into

Mote grand aquarium opening; past reflections


Mote Marine Laboratory's new, expanded
aquarium addition has opened, and it's a site to behold.
Gone are the cramped hallways that provided a
high "jostle effect" for visitors. With its wider corridors
and more spacious room for viewing, patrons no longer
feel rushed to get out of the way to allow others behind
them to watch the critters. The end result is a greater
appreciation to the undersea world.
The $3.5 million expansion features new exhibits,
too. My favorite is a 550-gallon aquarium with a slew
of eels gently poking their heads out of the coral-like
structure in the middle of the tank. I also found that
triggerfish have a tremendous fascination for camera
*- lenses, as one kept thumping the glass of its aquarium
as I took its portrait.
There's something unique at Mote, too a mar-
riage of science with attractions. Three research labs
are set up with big windows to let aquarium visitors
watch the scientists work on their projects. Although
some scientists have grumbled about "having people
watching when we spill stuff," the labs-will help people
understand some of the important work Mote research-
ers are engaged in.
The groundbreaking last week for the aquarium
expansion took me back to another ribbon-cutting cer-
emony at Mote, this one in 1978, when the lab took
over its new quarters at City Island in Sarasota. It
wasn't a big ceremony in terms of number of people
present, but it was a big step ahead for the laboratory
and helped put Mote Marine on the scientific map -
although Mote had been a recognized leader in marine
* science for years.
The genesis of the current complex began in a
little one-room building in Placida, on the banks of
Gasparilla Bay. There, Dr. Eugenie Clark continued
her renowned research on shark biology and behav-
ior in what was called the Cape Haze Marine Labo-
ratory. She operated out of the tiny, cramped quar-
ters until 1960, when CHML expanded to a leased
10-acre tract of land at the then-pristine southern tip
of Siesta Key. A new lab was built, shark pens cre-
ated, docks constructed, and work on sharks and
other marine life continued.
Clark's benefactors, William and Anne Vanderbilt,
moved out of the state in the mid-1960s, and Clark left
for New York. The fate of Cape Haze was in jeopardy
until William and Lenore Mote, recent arrivals to
Sarasota, decided to start a marine lab in the area due
to his life-long love of the sea. It was a marriage almost
made in heaven, and Cape Haze became Mote Marine
Laboratory.
Mote, a Tampa native, had made a fortune in the
transportation business. His design for cargo contain-
ers increased efficiency of shipping, and his company
expanded service to the Far East and throughout the
United States. His company had a gross annual income
of more than $100 million when he and his partner sold
to Southern Railroad in 1960.
Dr. Perry Gilbert took over as executive director of


.1.
y- -i--


By Planu! tiT f


the lab, renamed after Mote. Gilbert expanded the ar-
eas of research, although the study of sharks remained
the prime focus of the lab. Scientists from around the
world came to Siesta Key to study sharks and star-
fish, fiddler crabs, dolphins, rays, turtles, red tide, and
pelicans.
The lab, its work, and its staff grew and grew. The
Placida site was retained, but as the walls bulged at the
Siesta Key site with all the scientists and volunteers,
Mote began plans to expand the site at Placida as the
prime location in fact, the sole location of Mote
Marine. The lease on the Siesta Key site was coming
up, and the once-wide-and-deep passage between the
Gulf and Bay at Midnight Pass was shoaling. "Time to
move," was the decision.
But when Sarasota columnist and environmental-
ist Jim Neville heard that Mote was considering leav-
ing the area, he put out a call to action that was actu-
ally heard. City and county officials, plus private spon-
sors and community leaders, rallied behind the "Save
Mote" program, and in February 1976 the Sarasota
City Commission agreed to lease four acres on City
Island to Mote for 50 years at $1 a year.


There was a problem, though the property was
in the middle of City Island with no access to either the
Gulf or Bay. The idea of a marine laboratory without
access to the marine world appeared to quash the deal
until Arvida Corp. stepped to the table and leased Mote
an adjacent 2.5 acres of waterfront property with the
same terms, and the current Mote Marine Laboratory
was born.
Funds were raised, construction began and the
move from Siesta Key to Sarasota took place in late
May 1978. The official dedication ceremonies took
place Nov. 11.
Mote has continued to grow in its past 21 years.
Besides the new space at the aquarium, there is now
additional room in the laboratory itself. A marine mam-
mal research and rehab center was built, educational
outreach programs created, and fields of research ex-
panded.
It's hard to believe a one-room research facility
could have grown in 44 years to what is today Mote
Marine Laboratory.

Sandscript factoid
I suppose you could say that the "eyes" have it for
these factoids. Here goes:
A shark is the only fish that can blink with both
eyes. -
The giant squid has the largest eyes in the world.
An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.
It's impossible to sneeze with your eyes open.
Also, a sneeze is the sensation most closely related to
an orgasm.
Hey, it's not like I make this stuff up!

Sea oat sale offered to Islanders cheap!
/ 7Called "pioneer plants" on the coastal scene, sea
.. oats are those hardy, state-protected shrubs that gather
(,, and hold sand on a'beach.
- ~And the Keep Sarasota Beautiful program is offer-
ing the tough little plants at a really great deal for any-
t ione wishing to plant them.
./ Donald L. Fleming, chair of the Beach
/ F Renourishment and Beautification Committee of KSB,
.. is in charge of the sale of sea oats. Cost for a small liner
of sea oats is 50 cents: a four-inch plant goes for $1.
"Sea oats are, in my opinion, the most beautiful
a ,- plant on our beaches and one of the best plants for
building sand dunes." Fleming said. He said Island
residents are welcome to participate in the program.
Call Fleming at 387-3871 to order the sea oats.
They must be paid for in advance, and delivery will be
made March 27 at a yet-to-be-announced location.
Sea oats are hardy, drought-resistant plants that
seem to thrive on the barren beaches of Florida. The
root structures of the plants burrow deep into the soil
sometimes as much as 10 feet and the bamboo-
like stalks tend to accumulate blowing sand. In time.
sand dunes form around the base of the plants as they
SIrow, with the root structure holding the sand in place
Donald L. Fleming admires some hardy, tough sea oats. The plants are being offered for sale to beacltlront from winds and errant waves.

Sheepies make their annual appearance


By Capt. Mike Heistand
Cool water and cooler weather mean sheepshead,
and this season is no exception for those tasty striped
fish. There are also some reports of truly enormous
sheepies being caught offshore. Other action includes
drum, trout and some small catch-and-release snook in
the backwater, while grouper and snapper remain fish
of choice offshore.
Fishers at the Rod and Reel Pier report sheeps-
head are biting as is the occasional drum.
Anglers at the Anna Maria City Pier are reeling
in sheepshead and mackerel. Fishing is picking up, and
bait fish are coming back.
Annie's Bait & Tackle said that Capt. Zack on the
Dee Jay II said there are lots of school reds near the
beach. Other catches include sheepshead, mangrove
snapper and lots of gag grouper. In the deep water, look
for spotted sea trout and flounder along the beaches,
and bluefish and Key West grunts are thick.
Capt. Thom Smith at Angler's Repair said he's
getting into a few redfish and trout on the seagrass flats
and sheepshead and mangrove snapper near the Sun-
shine Skyway artificial reef system.
Capt. Curt Morrison on the Neva-Miss said he's
catching gag grouper to 15 pounds, nice-sized lane
snapper, mangrove snapper to five pounds and some
25-pound kingfish.

Boating classes offered
by Power Squadron
Manatee Sail and Power Squadron will offer the
four-week safe boating class "Boat Smart" beginning
Wednesday, Jan. 20, at the squadron's learning center

Carl at Perico Harbor Bait & Tackle said wade
fishers are doing good with trout and redfish around the
mangrove island and near shore. Catch-and-release
snook fishing is picking up, but the fish are still small.
Offshore action includes grouper way out in the Gulf.
Capt. Rick Gross said his charters are getting into
triggerfish, sheepshead, snapper and flounder.
Capt. Mark Bradow reports good catches of
good-sized sheepshead to four pounds, plus trout, snap-
per and permit.
On my boat Magic we're catching pompano, permit,
trout, redfish, drum, whiting, drum and sheepshead.
Capt. Tom Chaya said he's catching some really
big sheepshead up to 10 pounds in the Gulf plus a few
triggerfish.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said the best bet
right now is sheepshead around the area bridges. Pom-
pano and whiting are being caught off the beaches, and
there are a few redfish around the docks. Offshore,
grouper action remains hot, and look for snapper and
triggerfish near the artificial reefs.
At the Snead Island Crab House. Dave Johnson
says black drum are thick around the docks in the
Manatee River, trout action is good in Terra Ceia Bay
and there are still lots of snapper near the Sunshine
Skyway reefs.
Good luck and good fishing.
