Holmes Beach
By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Familiar, but not regular, faces will be seated on
the dais at Holmes Beach City Hall.
Commissioners Pat Geyer and Don Maloney and
former Mayor Rich Bohnenberger now commis-
sioner won Tuesday's election.
Geyer was top vote getter with 655 votes. Boh-
nenberger received 589 votes, and Maloney took 483.
Total votes cast were 1,004 of the city's 3.790 regis-
tered voters.
All three will serve two-year terms beginning with
their swearing-in on March 22 at 10 a.m. at city hall.
The ceremony will be followed by the new
commission's first meeting. All commissioners will
receive $4,800 per year.
Other results of the election are:
Luke Courtney, 471 votes.
Sheila Hurst, 471.
Walter Stewart, 205 votes.
"I appreciate all the votes I got and all the people
who helped." Geyer said.
"I feel excited," Bohnenberger said. "It was a very
exciting experience one voter told me he snuck out
of the hospital to vote for me. I'm ready to go to work
and anxious to get started."
"I'm glad," Maloney said. "We need the next two
years to finish what we need to do."

Murder scene in Cortez
Lance Ritchison was arrested and charged with second-degree murder for the shotgunning of Lonnie Poole at
this camp scene in the wooded area east of Cortez and south of Cortez Road at 115th Street. The pair were
allegedly involved in a lovers' triangle that focused on a third man, James Walkup. Numerous homeless
camps and huts exist near the waterfront at the scene. Islander Photo: David Futch


Argument leads to death

in Cortez homeless camp


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Lance Ritchison remains in Manatee County jail,
charged with murder in the shotgunning of Lonnie
Poole.
Both 54, both homeless, they lived in huts on vacant
land near the old Cortez school where the shooting took
place. Sheriff s detectives said they and a third man, James
Walkup, 41, were involved in a lovers' triangle.
Officers said Poole, armed with two knives, chased
Walkup and later Ritchison. Poole and Ritchison
scuffled, they said, and Ritchison got a 20-gauge shot-
gun. He said he shot Poole in the chest in self-defense.
Detectives said, however, that because of conflict-
ing statements by Ritchison, statements by Walkup and
evidence at the scene, they discounted self-defense and
filed a second-degree murder charge.
Poole was shot Tuesday night, March 3, according
to the deputies, in the camp occupied by homeless.


Springfest

coming this

weekend
More than 100 artists and crafters from the U.S.
and Canada are to participate in the 11 th annual Anna
Maria Island Springfest of Fine Arts and Crafts Satur-
day and Sunday, March 13 and 14.
Thejuried festival will be at the park near city hall
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Sponsoring the cel-
ebration of the arts again this year is the Anna Maria
Island Art League. Admission and parking are free.
The family event will feature continuous live mu-
sic on stage, with a large food court offering a variety
of food and beverages.
Also exhibiting will be community organizations
that include wildlife, historical and environmental
groups. Their live animals have been a popular feature
in years past.
A highlight will be a raffle of artworks donated by

Ritchison told the third man, Walkup, to call 911 about
11 a.m. the next day.
Walkup told officers Ritchison was jealous of
Poole and angry because of Poole's abusive behavior
toward Walkup. He said he was watching television in
Poole's hut, heard the other two arguing and then a
gunshot.
Both Ritchison and Poole had lived in Cortez for
years, once employed by the A.P. Bell Fish Co. Cortez
residents said both men were known to drink, but that
Poole was a "happy drunk" who was not ever known
to be violent.
They seemed to be happy in the woods where they
had their "tent city," neighbors said. It had electricity
provided by car batteries and a generator, a shower and
a garden.
Mary Fulford Green, descendant of Cortez pio-
neers and a civic leader, said the property had been
used as an illegal dumping ground for years, but she
thought it had been cleaned up when the county closed
the road there at her suggestion.
She knew Ritchison, she said, and had seen him
when she went there two years ago. He was on medi-
cation for mental illness, she said.
The shooting was the first homicide this year in
Manatee County, which usually has about one a month.

Beach funds in budget; sand next winter?


By Paul Roat
More sand along Anna Maria Island's western
shore may be flowing from offshore sites by this time
next year.
That's the good news from Jack Gorzeman with
the Manatee County Environmental Management De-
partment, who is heading up the Island's beach
renourishment project.
There may be a hitch or maybe a ditch in the
project, at least as far as Anna Maria City residents are
concerned.
Gorzeman' said residents in about a quarter-mile
stretch in south Anna Maria did not sign easements to
allow the project in front of their property. He said a
decision will be reached by the end of March as to
whether to proceed with the project without easements,
or scrap the entire Anna Maria City renourishment.
If the Anna Maria City part of the project proceeds,
Gorzeman said a landlocked lagoon would probably be
created when sand is pumped in to form an offshore
sandbar. A similar situation developed in Bradenton
Beach during the first beach renourishment project in
1991-92 in front of the Sandy Cove Condominiums in
the 2300 block of Gulf Drive when the owner refused
to sign the easement.
Gorzeman said the entire beach renourishment
project, including Anna Maria City, would cost about
$9.5 million. Deleting Anna Maria City would drop the
cost by $2.5 million, to $7 million. The project will
begin on the beach at 13th Street South in Bradenton
Beach and run north to about the Sandbar restaurant -
or 78th Street in Holmes Beach, depending on the fi-
nal decision of how far to proceed.
A major hurdle may have been passed regarding
funding. The Anna Maria Island beach
renourishment project has been included in Gov. Jeb
Bush's budget for the 1999-2000 fiscal year, and
Gorzeman was hopeful the Florida Legislature
would keep the funds.secure when it approves the
budget during the ongoing legislative session.


Mini-beach renourishment at Sandbar
A blue heron wanders idly between large sand piles near the Sandbar restaurant Wednesday, March 3. Owner
Ed Chiles is renourishing the beachfront at his restaurant because of storm erosion. This is a second attempt
to renourish the area. The last installment of sand was carried away by a storm a couple of months ago.

Still unclear is how much federal money will be
available. Gorzeman said he hoped to have the feds
pick up 54 percent of the beach renourishment dollars,
with the state share 23 percent and local matching
funds 23 percent. The local money will come from the
tourist development tax revenue.
Gorzeman added that the federal funding was
being sought for fiscal year 2000-01. Once those


funds are allocated he hoped by the end of this
year the project would proceed with local and
state funding being advanced to allow the project to
go ahead by next year.
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 post office relocation plan official


By Susan K. Kesselring
Islander Reporter
Soon there will be a forwarding address for the post
office in Anna Maria.
Commissioner Doug Wolfe announced that the
post office would be moving to BayView Plaza at the
February candidate forum, but post office officials de-
clined to confirm the location of the move this week.
Suncoast District Real Estate Specialist Mary
Presnell has scheduled a public meeting on the matter
at Anna Maria City Hall during a regular commission
meeting Tuesday, March 23.
At that meeting, Presnell will inform the public of
the U.S. Postal Service's intention to move the facility

festival exhibitors. Proceeds go to the league's schol-
arship fund, providing free art classes and support to
school-age children. Tickets are $5.
The entertainment schedule for both days begins
with the Anna Maria String Band playing bluegrass,
western swing, hillbilly jazz on fiddle, flat top, dog-
house bass and musical saw, from 10:30 a.m. until
12:30 p.m.
Bill Schustik, historian and folklorist who has per-
formed for the past five presidents, will entertain with
Civil War songs and legends and play guitar, banjo,
harmonica, dulcimer, jew's harp and concertina as he
yodels and narrates, appearing from 12:30 to 1 p.m.
"Friends of Reilly" will play Irish instrumentals on
guitar, mandolin, fiddle, flute and penny whistle from
1:45 to 4 p.m.
Art festivals in December and March are the ma-
jor fund-raisers for the league, a nonprofit organization
"dedicated to fostering the arts on the Island," said
Ginger White, director.
In addition to the children's art classes, funds from
the festivals underwrite operation of the art center at
5312 Holmes Blvd., Holmes Beach, as well as exhib-
its and a variety of workshops and classes for children
and adults.
Information is available at 778-2099.


from 9908 Gulf Drive, and invite public comment.
In a letter to Mayor Chuck Shumard, Presnell said,
"The Postal Service has determined that the present
postal facility is inadequate to serve future postal needs
of Anna Maria."
She said the post office will first consider expand-
ing the existing facility before looking elsewhere.
"If this is not feasible," Presnell said, "we will
then consider relocating to another building or con-
struct a new building on a site that is, ideally, ap-
proximately 1.22 acres."
Approval of the city commission is not required for
the post office to relocate.
According to U.S. Postal Service spokesperson Gary

Sawtelle, this is the first step in the relocation process.
He said 45 days are set aside for a "comment pe-
riod" and to solicit bids from other property owners
with appropriate facilities for the post office. A notice
will be placed in a local newspaper advertisement.
"The office is not large enough and no longer fits
our needs on Anna Maria," Sawtelle said.
He said they have identified a "preferred area" of
where they would like to relocate.
The question is: What will the forwarding address
for the post office be?
Mayor Chuck Shumard announced at a November
commission meeting that the post office would be
moving to BayView Plaza, so it seems some folks in
Anna Maria are privy to post office plans.
Shumard said information regarding the post of-
fice location was received at city hall with the
developer's plans.
BayView Plaza, located at 101 S. Bay Blvd, across
from the city pier, is presently under construction.
When completed, it will serve as a retail center.
Sawtelle would not confirm the location, saying
that the post office has a process it must follow first.
Sawtelle did say a developer approached the post
office with a lease proposal, but at that time they were
"not actively seeking another location."
Suncoast District Facilities Manager Betty Bailey
visited the BayView site and investigated the proposal,
Sawtelle said.
When asked if he submitted a proposal to the post
office, BayView Plaza developer Jim Toomey declined
to comment.
Toomey's proposal could not be provided,
Sawtelle said, because it was a verbal proposal.
Sawtelle said real estate developers approach them
on a daily basis and there's nothing unusual about that.
"1 would hope a developer doesn't build hoping for
a spot before it goes through the official process,"
Sawtelle said.
"We're not hiding anything. We're just looking to
protect the individual because it's a competitive pro-
cess," he said.
Sawtelle said it wouldn't be fair for a developer to
have his bid public knowledge as it would give other
potential bidders an advantage.

Privateers leader arrested in Bradenton Beach


The leader of the Anna Maria Island Privateers was
arrested and charged with disorderly intoxication in
Bradenton Beach Sunday morning, just days after city
commissioners approved relocation of the group's contro-
versial boat-float to Bridge Street.
Rick Maddox, 45, of Cortez, was arrested at about 1
a.m. Sunday in front of the Drift In lounge on Bridge
Street after he and other Privateers fired black-powder pis-
tols into the air, according to police reports. Maddox was,
released later on Sunday after posting $120 bond.


No stranger to controversy, Maddox was fired from
his position as Holmes Beach Police Chief by then-Mayor
Pat Geyer in July 1993. Following numerous hearings, he
reached a settlement agreement for severence with the city
in January 1994.
Maddox became a patrol officer in Holmes Beach in
1978 and was named chief in 1986. He served as an of-
ficer previously in the Bradenton Beach and Longboat
Key police departments.
He is president of the Privateers, a not-for-profit com-

Construction workers take time out Tuesday, March 2, to enjoy the view from atop the soon-to-be Publix grocery

person for Keene Construction said the estimated time for completion is August with an early fall opening. The
project, including permitting, site work and paving is estimated at $2.3 million. Islander Photo: Susan Kesselring

Also a common sight is
the large float shaped like a

Beach until recently, when it
was forced to relocate after Maddox
controversy regarding its zon-

Cortez home.
Last week, Bradenton Beach City Commissioner Gail
Cole announced that negotiations with Maddox had appar-
ently succeeded in getting the boat-float back to the Island,
in an area east of Key West Willy's restaurant on Bridge
Street. Commissioners lauded the organization and its
efforts at that time.
Mayor Connie Drescher said Maddox's arrest was
"disappointing news" but said the Privateers' contribu-
tions to Island youth were positive and, unless the city
commission indicated otherwise, the float is still welcome
in Bradenton Beach.

Code board clears two property owners


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Putting nearly a year of hearings to rest, the
Holmes Beach Code Enforcement Board recently de-
clared two properties in compliance at a special pub-
lic hearing.
In January Code Enforcement Officer Walter
Wunderlich declared the properties in compliance;
however, a neighbor disagreed. The property owners
claimed they were being persecuted and harassed.
Board members said they needed further information
and scheduled the public hearing.

One case involves the property of George and
Sylvia Harris, 7602 Marina Drive. Last April the board
found the Harrises guilty of violating several sections
of the city's code and gave them 25 days to clean up
their yard or face a fine of $250 per day.
In a November update on the case, Wunderlich
reported he told the couple as long as they were mak-
ing progress the fine would not go into effect. The
board then voted to give the Harrises 25 days to com-
plete the work or face a fine of $25 per day.
Wunderlich said the couple had until Nov. 16 to
bring the property into compliance. The property was


brought into compliance on Nov. 22 and the couple
paid a $125 fine. Wunderlich also produced photo-
graphs of the property taken the week of the hearing.
"It's not as pristine as some people would like, but
it's in compliance," Wunderlich pointed out.
Attorney Richard Carter, representing the Harrises,
noted, "What you see before you are pictures of what
most of us came to Florida and the Island to enjoy -
a Florida laid-back lifestyle. The Island has a certain
character it is not Longboat Key or west Bradenton
or Miami Beach."
Carter said it is not up to the board to determine
what is pristine, but to decide whether the Harrises are
in compliance or not. He said the Harrises have been
cleared twice by the board and will "keep their prop-
erty in proper Florida style" but in compliance with
the laws.
"What one neighbor thinks is appropriate for that
neighborhood should not sway you to the point where
you continue to use the city's resources to punish folks
like the Harrises," Carter continued. "When you do
that, it becomes selective enforcement. You take on the
shield and the sword of someone who may have an-
other ax to grind."
Neighbor Irene Flynn read from a four-page state-
ment in which she claims the Harris property is not in
compliance. Flynn presented a series of photographs
she had taken since 1994; however, Carter objected to
any photographs that were not part of the original ci-
tation.
City Attorney Jim Dye said the photographs must
be relevant to the proceeding. Chairman Chuck Stealey
ruled that only photographs taken from November
1998 to the present could be admitted.

BOARD, FROM PAGE 4

Wunderlich objected to Flynn's photographs dated
December and February, noting, "This stuff was not on
the property."
Dye said the board cannot consider violations al-
leged by Flynn for which the Harrises have not been
cited.
During board deliberations, member Joe Bracken
said he is concerned about discrepancies in the photo-
graphs and Wunderlich's position that the property is
in compliance.
"Maybe we're not being strict enough in our inter-
pretation of compliance," Bracken said. "There's still
some serious issues that have to do with the condition
of the neighborhood, what it says about Homes Beach
and how we care about taking care of our property."
Member Don Schroder said the issue is whether the
board accepts Wunderlich's ruling that the property
was in compliance on Nov. 22.
The board found the property in compliance, with
Bracken dissenting.
In the second case, involving the property of Gloria
and Philip Ware, 406 76th St., the couple was cited in
March 1998 under several sections of the code. In No-
vember Wunderlich reported the Wares began cleanup
but stopped. The board ordered the Wares to bring the
property into compliance by Jan. 25.
Wunderlich said the property was in compliance on
that date and submitted photographs taken the week of
the hearing.
Flynn again protested Wunderlich's ruling and
submitted a statement and photographs of the property.
Gloria Ware said she and her family have been
working steadily to clean up the property. She also pro-
tested the dates on Flynn's photographs.
"Everything is according to code," son Jeffrey
Ware said. "I've done everything possible to please
whoever has any complaints."
Flynn said the house is mildewed on the outside
and a wire fence is deteriorating.
Wunderlich said the mildew is not a citable offense
and the fence was not cited in the previous violations.
The board found the property in compliance with
Bracken dissenting.


There's a new vice mayor in town.
New name plates will be needed at Anna Maria City Hall since Mayor Chuck Shumard announced Feb. 23 at
the commission meeting that he was making Commissioner Robert McElheny his new vice mayor. In the event
the mayor cannot carry forth with his administrative duties or is absent, McElheny will act as mayor.
Shumard thanked Commissioner Doug Wolfefor serving as vice mayor the past year. He said he wanted to
give other commissioners a chance to serve. And, it wasn't the only change. In a round of musical chairs,
Shunard changed where commissioners sit regularly on the dais. Islander Photo: Susan Kesselring


"This board can only make a decision based on the
evidence that is brought to us in this room," Stealey
explained to those attending the hearing. "This board
does not employ the code enforcement officer or go out
and look for violations the city does. If citizens are
not satisfied with code enforcement they must com-
plain to the city, not us."
Schroder asked Dye if the city should strengthen its
codes.
"That's a two-edged sword," Dye replied. "A de-
tailed code has certain black-and-white guidelines but
you lose the discretion of the board. Personally, I like
flexibility. If a board is used well, it can apply the facts
properly and make good decisions."
Stealey added. "This board is appointed by the
mayor and commissioners who are elected. The codes


are enacted by the mayor and commissioners. The
community standard we deal with is a reflection of the
residents that voted those people to office."
In February Flynn appeared before the city com-
mission and claimed Wunderlich is not doing his job.
"The code enforcement officer, through his poor
performance and continuing insubordination, has not
enforced the codes of our city or the rulings of the code
enforcement board," Flynn maintained.
"On the beautification board at least half of the things
that we hear about that need to be fixed involve code en-
forcement," said Commissioner Roger Lutz, the city's
beautification liaison. "I think we need to do something
to tighten it up. I'd like to have a work session with the
code enforcement board and Walter and see what we can
do to make that board more aggressive."

Not in my back yard
Heaven only knows why Manatee County sheriff's
deputies allowed squatters to remain for so long on the
vacant waterfront property east of the Village of Cortez
- but they did.
It seems they might have known, since a clear path,
wide enough for a car, runs south on the opposite side of
Cortez Road 115th Street through pine, pepper and man-
grove trees with garbage, construction debris and piles
of tree trimmings and other yard waste alongside.
While a barricade prevents vehicles from entering
the path, it runs far back through a wooded area. turns
south and ends in a large clearing fronting a natural
canal where several "camps" have been established.
It appears most of the inhabitants occupy lean-tos
comprising various materials, tarps, window shades
and two-by-fours.
One dweller has a cabin with a workout bench and
makeshift outdoor shower. Another of the camps has
a dog house.
There are old bicycles, sawhorses, coolers, clothes
and all manner of debris strewn about, lending an "af-
ter-the-tornado" effect to the perimeter of the area. It's
maintained like a dump by its own inhabitants.
Of course, there are no sanitary facilities. No sewer
lines, no plumbing, no electricity.
It's a hobo camp with conditions that beg for
trouble hidden and filthy.
Any stolen property found there wouldn't be worth
claiming.
How many more areas of this kind exist on the
large vacant tracts of land along Cortez Road, breed-
ing filth and dumping sewage into bay waters?
Residents of Cortez and Sunny Shores deserve
better neighbors and the vagrant areas need to be
purged.
It's certainly not the kind of wildlife you want in
your back yard.
Perhaps a little sheriff's department helicopter ride
would identify camp areas and then if there's any
county code to require a cleanup of these tracts by
property owners, from what we've seen on our visit
there, it's long overdue.

Keep the boat-float
alive on Island
An unfortunate incident over the weekend should not
sway the Bradenton Beach City Commission decision to
allow the Privateers' boat-float to moor in the city.
The jaunty vessel has been missing in action on the
Island for far too long. We think its placement on Bridge
Street is great and hope the activities of the weekend will
not deter its new Island home from becoming a reality.

Nosy neighbors a nuisance
In response to the "Opinion Letters" of D. Irene
Flynn and Edward Mclntyre published in The Islander
Bystander Feb. 24:
As someone who was born and raised on Anna Maria
Island I am 68-years-old I can't believe the whin-
ing you two people are doing over someone else's home.
This use to be such a great place to live. Where did
you people come from that you have to worry about
what other people are doing? Why don't you mind you
own business.?
Up until about 10 years ago. the Island became the
crowded, uptight place that it is now. No one cared
what anyone else did. It was live and let live. Now
there's security systems, more dogs than anyone can
imagine, fences, etc.
I wish Flynn and Mclntyre would go back to wher-
ever they came from and take the rest of the complain-
ers with them.
The greatest song ever written was. "To Each His
Own."
I passed the two properties and I don't see anything
at all wrong with them. If Flynn and Mclntyre don't
like it, why don't they move. It sure wouldn't bother
me or any of us native Islanders.
Mitchell "Mitch Kroeger, Anna Maria
Defense of crows
Does Robert Byers (Who doesn't like crows? -
Feb. 3 issue) think that nature made a mistake in cre-
ating crows? Unfortunately, this has been the attitude
toward many species of birds, animals and insects, al-
ways to our detriment. Many people do not understand
the benefits these "pesty" creatures bring about in the
balance of nature.
Crows are actually intelligent and interesting birds.
They do the things that they do because that's the way
they are made. There is no good or bad in nature. There
is only the need for survival.
Could it be possible that if, in fact, there has been a
decrease in the number of song birds that it might be due
to our feeding them pesticides and herbicides in our lawns
and gardens? Could itl e that w\e have been taking away
their territory, giving them little refuge from crows :and.
jays? Frequently, \when species dis:ipp'lr or g(o clse\wh\en'


we need to take a look at our own habits.
Jeanerte Rothberg, Anna Maria

Liked history fair article
We were so pleased to see the Jan. 27 article by Pat
Copeland on the history fair, which included several stu-
dents from St. Stephen's Episcopal School. The students
and their parents were tickled to see their accomplish-
ments in print. In fact, one mother was so proud she pho-
tocopied the article and passed it out in the office.
We all enjoyed this article and are very proud of
these students.
Amnainda E. Buskirk, Director of Alumni. St.
Stephen's Episcopal School

Many returns
I would like to thank all the people who made
my "39th" birthday party such a smash: My wife, my
son and the bartenders and also Patti Prudente from
Marina Bay restaurant, who catered the affair. And
lest I forget, Manatee County Sheriff's Deputy Jules
Dengler, who oversaw my safe journey home. Good
food, good drinks, good folks. I can't wait to turn 40.
Al Tate, Bortell's Lounge, Anna Maria

Honesty appreciated
On March 2, 1999, I filled up our car at the Amoco
station at Cortez and 59th Ave., Bradenton.
After I had filled up for $10 worth I asked my wife
to give me a $10 bill. However, she handed me a $20
bill without mentioning it. I put the bill on the counter
without looking at it and left.
Several hours later after dinner my wife asked me
if I had pocketed her change. At that time I realized my
mistake. We phoned immediately and were told to
check back the following day.
By the time we stopped there the next morning the
money and a note were at the counter.
We have been staying at Anna Maria Island for the
past 10 years, enjoying the friendly people and your
beautiful Island.
Our heartfelt thanks to Matt Frymer and the people
working at this station.

THOSE WERE THE IAYS
Part 2, The Bean/Hall Story
by June Alder


In 1865, 23-year-old Abbie Jane Bean posed for this portrait with her
infant daughter Lula. Lula and her older brother Charles Frank were
born while their father was at war.


SEA LOVERS


In her old age Gladys Bean Holdstock
delighted in talking about the intrepid men
in her past who loved the sea.
"When the Beans came over from
England," she'd say in her dramatic
voice (she had been a performer on
Broadway in the 1920s, and won danc-
ing contests when she'was in her 90s) -
she'd say, "Seven brothers came over,
and every one of them was a sea captain.
Oh, the Beans, they always went to sea."
She'd list them: "Now, Great
Grandpa Bean was born in Kennebunk,
Me., same as his wife. And my grandpa,
George Emerson Bean, was born in
Maine, too. That's where he and
Grandma Abbie Jane got married.
"They had seven children one
was my daddy. Two of my daddy's
brothers were steam boat captains, one
on the Mississippi and one on the ocean.
After that they stayed steam boat inspec-
tors. My daddy never went to sea for a.
living, but he was a marine engineer
who was in the Spanish American War
and proud of it."
Gladys's "Daddy" was George
Wilhelm "Will" Bean, third son of
"Grand Daddy" George Emerson Bean
and a brother of Mary Bean Hall who
took over the Anna Maria Maria home-
stead when her father died in 1898.
Gladys was a cousin of the five children
of Mary and Wilbur Hall.
As Gladys Bean told it, her grandfa-
ther came back from a post-Civil War voy-
age to Florida in 1865 hoping to continue
the Bean family's seafaring heritage.
But times were changing. The fisher-
ies of New England were dying off.
Speculators struck oil in Pennsylvania and
whales soon would be obsolete as
America's main source of energy to light
lamps and turn the wheels of industry.
In 1869 George E. Bean moved


Abbie and their two children, 6-year-
old Charles Frank and 4-year-old Lula
(both born while George was away at
war) to Texas. There he bought ranch
land near Austin, hoping to make good
raising cattle. But like other Bean en-
terprises, this one failed. After the birth
of their third child, Cecil, the Beans re-
turned to New England and settled on
a farm near Willimantic, Conn.
Four more children arrived in
quick succession--Gladys's father
Will in 1875; Mary (later Mary Hall)
in '77; Harold in '79; and Edith, the
seventh and last offspring, in 1880.
After Edith's birth, Abbie's doctor
insisted she needed a milder climate.
George thought again of Florida and
Anna Maria Maria Island. He had
heard talk that a boom was on the way
in Tampa. A smart fellow by the name
of H.B. Plant was laying a rail line to
Tampa and planned to transform the
town into an international port.
George was 41. Abbie was 39. It
was now or never, he told her. He was
determined to head south to Florida and
make enough money in Tampa to allow
him to homestead the lovely island he
had camped on nearly 20 years before.
Finally Abbie gave in, and in 1881
the Bean family boarded a ship for
Florida.
That's how 7-year-old George
Wilhelm Bean came to Tampa where
he grew up to become Gladys
Holdstock's father on the next-to-the-
last day of the 19th century Dec. 30,
1899. Like her cousin Miriam Hall
Murphy, Gladys nearly made it to the
21st century mark.

Blair said when White ignored the division's requests
to file the report, an order was issued to revoke the license.

Dr. Kelly Reynolds to portray Henry B. Plant


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
It was Feb. 5, 1891, a crisp, clear evening along the
banks of the Hillsborough River. The grand opening of the
Tampa Bay Hotel was in full swing.
Ladies in long gowns of lace and silk and gentlemen
in their finest formal attire danced merrily through the
evening to the strains of Boston Symphony musicians in
the sumptuous Grand Salon. Others strolled the grounds
lush with palms, orchids, ferns and flowers and brightly
lit with Chinese lanterns and candles.
Some paused to enjoy the Albert Opera Company
perform Faust. Women reclined on white wicker chaises
in the tropical solarium, gracefully fanning themselves.
Men congregated in the basement Rathskeller for billiards
and brandy.
A few bedded down early, ferried to their rooms in
rickshaws, to rest up for the following day's tennis tour-
nament in which Dr. Dwight Davis, the father of Ameri-
can lawn tennis, would be a contestant. For all 15,000
guests it was a fabulous party, but for Henry B. Plant,
owner and builder, it was the realization of a magnificent
dream.
Dr. Kelly Reynolds will portray Plant, a Connecticut
industrialist who brought his railroad and shipping system
to Tampa providing for the area's first commercial expan-
sion. In addition, Plant endowed the city with elegance and
luxury with his famous hotel, which was declared a Na-
tional Historic Landmark in 1977.
For many years, Reynolds performed a one-man
show as Sen. Claude Pepper, one of Florida's legendary
liberals.
"Members of the audience would tell me that he was
too liberal," Reynolds recalled. "So I thought 1 would
work on a performance as a famous American capitalist
and I chose Henry M. Flagler."
Reynolds said he began to develop the character and

Dr. Kelly Reynolds as Henry Plant


called author and historian David Nolan whose book he
was using. Nolan said someone else was doing Flagler and
suggested he perform as Plant.
"I knew little about Plant," Reynolds noted. "I thought
Plant City was named because of the strawberries they
grew there. I began doing research and found that he was
much more of a charming human being than Flagler."
Reynolds is a former University of South Florida
English professor and a veteran actor in local productions.
He now performs Plant in towns and cities throughout the
south as one of 15 members of the Speaker's Bureau of
the Florida Humanities Council.
"In my performance, I use slides and vintage photos


to create a time trip of local history," Reynolds said.
Reynolds will present his one-man show on March 15
at 7:30 p.m. at Holmes Beach City Hall. The show is spon-
sored by the Historical Society and is made possible by a
grant from the Florida Humanities Council.
The performance is free and open to the public but
tickets are required. Tickets are available in advance at the
Anna Maria Island Historical Museum, 402 Pine Ave.,
Anna Maria. The museum is open Tuesday through
Thursday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

March 17.
Rabid Green Bay Packer fan and chef/owner Ray
Arpke, of Euphemia Haye, will be tending bar at Bis-
tro at Island's End in Anna Maria to benefit Anna
Maria Island Community Center youth programs.
Joining Ray behind the bar will be Beach Bistro and
Bistro at Island's End owner Sean Murphy rooting for
his favorite hockey team, the Toronto Maple Leafs.
They're inviting everyone to the party too, includ-
ing Buccaneer and Lightning fans. Ray will be sport-
ing his "brat hat" and there's bound to be a
"cheesehead" or two. No hockey sticks allowed, but
dress appropriately. All tips and one third of Bistro's
bar revenue accumulated during the 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
event are being donated by Murphy.
Last week's "celebrity" bartenders, twins Billy and
George O'Connor, have challenged future tenders to
top their tip total last week of $500.41.
Celebrity bartenders on March 18 will be Pat and
Peg Geyer, proprietors of Duffy's Tavern.

Citrus canker misses Island so far


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
The citrus canker outbreak of 1999 hasn't affected
Anna Maria Island, and hopes are strong it won't.

Pier safety discussed in
Bradenton Beach
It's one of those ideas that, when you hear it, you slap
your forehead and say, "Why didn't I think of that!"
The idea is a throwable flotation device for the
Bradenton Beach City Pier. The idea came from City
Commissioner Berneitta Kays.
"I've seen kids climbing on the railing at the pier, and
I'm afraid they may fall in the water," Kays said. "The
current goes pretty quickly through there, and I'm afraid
they'll end up in Sarasota before somebody can get to
them."
Kays suggested the city commission look into get-
ting a life ring, attached to a line and tied to the pier,
so if someone did end up in the drink they could get
back to safety. Commissioner agreed, and also sug-
gested a boarding ladder be looked at to make it easier
to get from the water to the deck, if needed.

"It's all north of the [Manatee] river," said
Wendell Bowman, a point man for the state in the
battle against the disease. "We hope it won't cross
the river. We haven't even found any canker any-
where near the north edge of the river."
Sixty square miles of northwestern Manatee
County have been put under a quarantine, with ship-
ment of citrus grown there under strict control. The
quarantine area is bounded by the river, Carter Road
east of 1-75, the Hillsborough County line and
Tampa Bay except for the Terra Ceia area.
Some orchards have been bulldozed and the
trees burned. The original quarantine of the Palmetto
area was extended north to Hillsborough more than
a week ago when canker was found near the county
line.
Bowman said citrus may be shipped from the
non-quarantine areas to friends and relatives in non-

of Plant Industries at its Palmetto office, 721-6622.
Canker is a highly contagious bacterial disease
that raises lesions on tree leaves and fruit, Bowman
said. It doesn't harm humans, but it weakens trees
and ruins fruit. It is spread by wind, birds, animals,
contaminated equipment, even clothing. Cold
doesn't stop it, for it can lie dormant in a tree for
years before symptoms show.
This is the fifth outbreak of canker. The worst
started in 1910, with 20 million trees destroyed in
Gulf Coast states before it was eradicated in 1933.
It showed up again from 1986 to 1990, then in 1995
in Dade County, and in 1997 in the Palmetto area.

The Harleses looked for a larger home for 13 years
as their family grew and the house grew more crowded.
But they found nothing that pleased them as much as
this one, so in early 1977 they decided their location
was too perfect to give up. Instead they would have to
change the home.
After 14 months of renovations the new old home,

These longtime residents of Tampa fell in love
with Anna Maria Island while visiting friends here.
After months of searching, they found this beautiful
location with views of Bimini Bay.
With the help of architectural firm Eatman & Smith
and contractor R.C. Nonn, a typical 1970s ranch style
home was transformed into a charming Key West home.
High ceilings, hundreds of feet of white crown
molding and walls of sliding glass doors give a wide-
open feeling with unobstructed views of the bay. The
pool, patio and spacious deck off the master suite all
lend to a casual island lifestyle.

Anna Maria student

Presidential Scholars candidate


Manatee High School senior Paul Esformes, son of
Robin and Albert Esformes of Anna Maria, has been
named one of 2,600 candidates for the U.S. Presiden-
tial Scholars Program. Candidates were selected from
2.7 million high school seniors nationwide.
The Presidential Scholars Program was established in
1964 by executive order of the President to recognize and
honor the nation's most-distinguished graduating high
school seniors. In 1979, the program was expanded to
recognize students who demonstrate exceptional talent in
the visual, creative and performing arts.
Candidates are chosen on the basis of their ac-


complishments in academics, the arts, leadership and
their involvement in school and community. Candi-
.dates must submit essays, self-assessments, school
reports and transcripts to be considered for the des-
ignation of Presidential Scholar.
In April, 141 of the candidates, including one
young man and woman from each state, the District of
Columbia, Puerto Rico and from families of U.S. citi-
zens living abroad, will be named Presidential Schol-
ars. Those named will be honored in Washington, D.C.,
in a ceremony at the White House.

did a speech about his dog titled "The Smudge."
Second-place went to fourth-grader Nick Taylor,
who is pictured in the center. Taylor is in Marcia
Brockway's class. His speech, titled "TS," was on
the subject of Tourette's syndrome. Fifth-grader
Lillie Marnie, pictured on left, received third-place
for her speech titled You Say Tomatoe, I Say
Tomato. Marnie is also in Ellis' class. Her speech
compared words in America and England that mean
the same thing but are different, such as the word
nappy, which in England is the word used for diaper.

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


Take me out
to the ball game!
Baseball is back. The sport that is as American as
apple pie is finally underway at both the professional
level, with spring training games being played all over
Florida, and at the local level with Little League, Babe
- Ruth and high school games being played all over
Manatee County.
Being a life-long fan of baseball, I have to mention
the death of former N.Y. Yankee great Joe Dimaggio,
who passed away Monday, March 8, after a five-month
battle with lung cancer. Testimonials attesting
Dimaggio's greatness on and off the field will surely
dominate newspapers across the country as baseball
loses perhaps its greatest ambassador of the game.
Baseball will surely miss him.
Back to local sports and Anna Maria Island Little
League. I generally don't report on AAA league games
due to space contraints until playoffs, but I received an
e-mail from coach Brad Lisk of AAA Quality Build-
ers stating they won their first game of the season by
a score of 12-7 over Air & Energy.
Tyler Schneerer got the pitching win with two in-
nings of four-hit pitching, allowing four runs and strik-
ing out four batters. Brad Bryant got the save with two
innings of three-hit pitching, while also striking out
four batters.
Quality Builders was led at the plate by Kyle

WMFD jumped out to a 9-0 lead in the top of the
first inning before Haley's rallied to record a 17-9 win
and a head start toward repeating as Anna Maria Little
League champions.
Haley's starting pitcher Jordan Bowers didn't have
the usual command of his pitches, but Chris Nelson
relieved him on the mound and held WMFD scoreless
the rest of the way, which allowed Haley's to get back
into the game and take the win.

Leading the way for Haley's was Blake Tyre, who
went 3-for-5 with an RBI and three runs scored. Nelson
helped himself at the plate as well, garnering two hits
and an RBI, while Mark Sankey, Skyler Purcell, Kyle
Schweitzer Matt Bobo and Michael Wallen had one hit
apiece.
WMFD was led by Jan Fredrickson, who carded a
2-for-4 night with four RBIs, and Josh Spicer, who
managed one hit from his lead-off position. Chase
Parker, Michael Cramer, and AnthonyRosas each
scored two runs for WMFD.

Bali Hai 14, Kiwanis 0
Bali Hai rode the three-hit pitching and power hit-
ting of Taylor Manning to record an easy win over
Kiwanis on March 5. Manning went 3-for-4 with two
doubles and a Ruthian shot over the monstrous left-
field fence to become the first player to go "yard" in
this still young Little League season.
Manning's pitching was every bit as impressive as
his hitting as he completely shut down the Kiwanis
bats, striking out seven and walking just one batter in
the four-inning game.
Supporting Manning at the plate were Joey Mattay,
who went 2-for-4 with four runs scored and one RBI,

Be careful this boating season, or else


With the onset of the boating season coming up,
it's good to know that less of us are boating and drink-
ing these days.
Unfortunately, more people died in Florida boating
mishaps last year than in 1997, although thankfully not
in Manatee County waters.
And there's a new boater chart out that should help
folks find new and exciting things to see and do on the
water.

A few grim statistics
Florida waters are the deadliest in the nation when
it comes to boater mishaps. It's no wonder: We've got
1,300 miles of coastline, 51,000 miles of rivers and
more than 7,000 lakes or ponds. When you consider
there are about 809,000 registered boats in the state,
and another 400,000 boats that come trailered or mo-
tored into the Sunshine State annually, the result is an
awful lot of people out on or in the water.
Accidents do happen. Especially when someone is,
well, "impaired" is the word that comes to mind.
Fatal boating accidents numbered 70 in 1998. up


SPORTS, FROM PAGE 23
and Logan Bystrom, who went 2-for-3 in the game.
Rookie catcher and lead-off man Sean Pittman walked
four times and scored four runs while also doing a great
job catching Manning's offerings from the mound.
Kiwanis was led by Evan Wolfe, Ryan Keller and
Will Langston, who each touched Manning for singles.

Haley's 11, WMFD 8
Haley's won its second game of the week on
Thursday, March 4, over hard-luck WMFD as Jordan
Bowers pitched four solid innings allowing three runs,
three hits and three walks, while striking out eight bat-
ters to get the pitching win.
Blake Tyre was once again the hitting star for
Haley's, going 4-for-4 with a triple, double and three
runs scored, while Mark Sankey; Chris Nelson, Bow-
ers, Purcell and Matt Bobo had two hits apiece.
Erik Stahr led WMFD with a 2-for-3 night, while
Michael Cramer's triple and singles by Greg Lowman,
and Brett Milks accounted for the WMFD offense.

Bali Hai 10, Kiwanis 0
Taylor Manning and Joey Mattay threw a com-
bined no-hitter at Kiwanis to take an easy 10-0 win and
keep pace with Haley's, also undefeated after the first
week of the season.
Leading the way for Bali Hai at the plate was
rookie phenom Sean Pittman, who walked twice,
scored two runs and had a two-run single. Pittman has
gotten off to an incredible start as the Bali Hai lead-off


three from 1997. Boating fatalities for the past few
years are:
1998 70.
1997 67.
1996 59.
1995 82.
The deadliest year in Florida was 1991, with 95
people perishing in boating accidents.
However, things have changed in the past year.
The Florida Legislature clamped down on boating un-
der the influence, coming up with a $500 fine for any-


man, walking six straight times and scoring six runs
before his two-run single in the second inning.
Adam Bouziane had one hit and two RBIs, while
Dominic Termini managed an RBI single and scored
two runs.

Soccer news
Islander Bystander/O'Hara's adult soccer team will
put its season on the line when they travel to Lakeland
on Sunday, March 14, to take on the Lakeland Lions in
the first round of the President's Cup.
If the Islanders win, they will play at home against
Tallahassee. Lose, and the Islanders' season is history.
If you want to join the caravan to Lakeland, we will
be meeting at Albertson's on Manatee Avenue at 10
a.m. for the long drive to Lake Parker Complex.
That's it for this week. I need to apologize to
Howie Banfield, who called in some tennis news and
left it on the answering machine at the Canniff resi-
dence, where I am currently staying until my new
house is ready. Someone inadvertently erased the mes-
sage before I could get to it.
Sorry, Howic!
This should be the last column I write hopefully
- from my mother-in-law's house. Don't get nme
wrong, my hosts have been ever so gracious but l'm
ready to live in my house, and I'm sure there won't be
any tears shed over our leaving, though everyone in the
Canniff house will surely miss my daughter Gillian.

tion, please call 749-6113 and leave a message, or e-
mail me at IslandFC@AOL.com.


one arrested for BUI and declining to take a
breathalyzer test. There were also some significant
boater education efforts undertaken, and the result was
a drop from 51 percent to 35 percent of alcohol-related
boating accidents.
Manatee County, by the way, had 19 water-ori-
ented accidents last year, resulting in 12 injuries and
about $108,000 in damages. For a comparison, Mon-
roe County including the Florida Keys led the
state in water problems with 213 accidents resulting in
97 injuries and five deaths.
Be careful out there this summer.

Where to go, what to do
The Sarasota Bay National Estuary Program,
Florida Sea Grant, the National Oceanic and Atmo-
spheric Administration and others have banded to-
gether to produce a "Sarasota Bay Blueways" chart.
The colorful document was created by my friends Tom
and Patti Cross, and gives boaters, birders, beachgoers
and anyone else a description of what to do on or near
the water from Anna Maria to Englewood.
Many of these kinds of charts are so crammed with
information that they're pretty much useless. The
Blueways chart is easy to read and provides all sorts of
interesting information.
There's a list of waterfront restaurants and marinas
with Intracoastal Waterway marker numbers for easy
location. Popular bird viewing spots are marked, as are
artificial reefs with lat-long coordinates and Loran
marks. Fishing piers are marked, as are popular anchor-
ages. There's even boat and canoe launch facilities in-
dicated.
On the back of the map are "commercial mes-
sages": what the Sarasota Bay National Estuary pro-
gram is all about. what an estuary is, boating safety tips,
and a list of marine resource phone numbers, all with
some of Patti Cross's neat illustrations. There's even
one of my favorite illustrations of a baby sea turtle
scampering in the sand, an illustration you can see on
this page with the "Sandscript" logo.
Also included are photographs by friends, well-
known Islander/aerial photographer Jack Elka and
Sarasota's Betsy Reed.
The chart is free, and I've seen it at most of the city
halls on the Island. Grab one and throw it in your boat
for the summer.

Some funnies
If you're anything like me, you're spending a lot
of time waiting in traffic these days. As a way to while
away the time, bumper stickers are a great thing. The
following are purported to be actual bumper stickers,
although a lot funnier than the ones I've been spotting
of late. By the way, the views or opinions provided are
in no way endorsed or supported by The Islander By-
stander, although we do think some of them are pretty
funny. Enjoy.

Sheepies, reds, grouper best fishing bets


By Capt. Mike Heistand
Sheepshead fishing is at its peak right now, and
the tasty striped fish are to be found near just about
any piling, dock, pier or bridge in the area. Redfish
action continues to be great, especially in Terra Ceia
Bay, and grouper fishing offshore remains excellent.
Fishers at the Rod and Reel Pier report catches
of sheepshead, redfish, pompano and a few flounder.
Anglers at the Anna Maria City Pier are reel-
ing in sheepshead, a few redfish and some frisky
mackerel,
Annie's Bait & Tackle said that Capt. Zack on
the Dee Jay II is catching sheepshead everywhere
and some big trout to 24 inches, redfish to 25 inches,
pompano and flounder. There are some snook
around, but they aren't real hungry yet and probably
won't be until the water gets warmer.
Capt. Sam Kimball on the Legend said he's
spending a lot of time in the Gulf, and at the 45-foot
depths is getting red and gag grouper to 15 pounds,
flounder to five pounds, bonita to 15 pounds and lots
of bluefish.
Capt. Thom Smith at Angler's Repair said he's
finding redfish in Terra Ceia Bay, plus a few small
but keeper snook and lots of sheepshead.
Capt. Curt Morrison on the Neva-Miss said he's
putting charters onto gag and red grouper anywhere
from seven to 20 miles offshore, with the best bet for
bait being live pinfish or cut threadfin herring. He's
seeing yellowtail snapper about 15 miles out, and
bonita and amberjack about 22 miles offshore. Arti-
ficial lures are producing the best results for the
bonita and amberjack, he added.
Carl at Perico Harbor Bait & Tackle said wade
fishers are doing very well with snook, redfish and
some nice-sized seatrout in Palma Sola Bay. Snook
are scattered but the ones coming to the hook are
good sized. Offshore, grouper action is the best bet,
weather permitting.
Capt. Rick Gross reports good catches of red-
fish, keeper snook and big trout on the seagrass flats.

Boating classes

offered by

Power Squadron
Manatee Sail and Power Squadron will of-
fer the four-week safe boating class "Boat
Smart" beginning Wednesday, March 17, at the
squadron's learning center in the NationsBank
building, 700 Eighth Ave. W., Palmetto, at 7
p.m.
The course meets and exceeds state licens-
ing requirements. All boaters aged 16 or under
must be licensed to operate a marine craft of 10
horsepower or less, and this class meets those
requirements. The course is free, but a small
fee is required for materials used.
The course provides an in-depth look at
boat handling seamanship, boat types and
terms, registration and equipment regulations,
state and local boating regulations, weather
and marlinespike.
For more information, call Judy Martorana
at 745-9582.

long, and one legal-sized cobia..
Capt. Tom Chaya said his picks for the week
include redfish, pompano and sheepshead.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said snook sea-
son is off to a good start, with white bait starting to
show up off the beaches on a regular basis. Sheeps-
head fishing is at its peak right now, and grouper
action offshore remains excellent.
Dave Johnson at the Snead Island Crab House
said white bait is at the mouth of the Manatee River
and around the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. Fishing
action includes black drum and trout in the river, and
lots of reds in Terra Ceia Bay.
At the South Skyway Fishing Pier, look to reel
in sheepshead, mangrove snapper, a few flounder,
some small grouper, bluefish and mackerel.
Capt. Matt Denham on the Rip Tide said he's
targeting grouper and amberjack, the latter tipping
the scales at better than 30 pounds.
Good luck and good fishing.
