Baseball was his life: Birdie Tebbetts


By David Futch
Islander Correspondent
Baseball never forgets.
And the game will never forget one of the most
fascinating and intelligent players and managers to ever
put on a uniform.
George Robert "Birdie" Tebbetts Sr., 86, longtime
Anna Maria resident, and even longer a player-man-
ager-executive-scout, died March 24 of congestive
heart failure.
Asked a few weeks earlier how he would like to be
remembered, the ballplayer with a philosophy degree
thought long and came up with the following.
"I am a baseball man. I don't know how else to


describe myself. My life began
as a baseball player when I was
eight years old and it never
stopped being a baseball
player's life.
"My dad died when I was
three years old. My mother's
brothers were baseball play-
ers. One of them became a
manager in the high profes-
sionals and the others played. Tebbetts: 1913-1999
My mother had three children
and she had to go to work and my mother's brothers
took care of me and they would take me with them

Cell tower ban coming to Bradenton Beach


By Paul Roat
Bradenton Beach is moving forward in its efforts
to regulate erection of cellular communication towers
within the city.
Members of the city's planning and zoning
board have unanimously approved a draft ordinance
that would limit cell towers to city property or in
limited areas within commercial or semi-public
lands. An application fee of $2,500 is called for in
the proposed law, and applicants must prove that no
existing towers or alternative structures would be


suitable for the cell transmitters.
Currently, no cellular towers are in Bradenton
Beach, and no plans have been offered to place
them there.
The ordinance is being written to regulate fu-
ture growth of the tall mono-poles that are popping
up everywhere. Holmes Beach officials fought a
long, losing battle to keep cell towers out of that
city last year.
The first public hearing on the ordinance is
planned before the city commission April 1 at 7 p.m.

post office


to be sought

By Susan K. Kesselring
Islander Reporter
At a March 26 regular commission meeting, Com-
missioner Max Znika cut to the chase and asked the
question many folks had on their minds.
"There's been many rumors that there's already
been a deal made to get the post office on the north end
by the pier. Is that true or not?"
U.S. Postal Service Real Estate Specialist Mary
Presnell said it wasn't true and that there haven't been
any contact or deals made with anyone.
She said, "We did receive a letter from the gentle-
man putting the facility up, but I'm only authorized to
look for an alternate location when I receive a project
that has been approved and I did not receive the project
until recently."
The Islander Bystander requested a copy of the
alleged letter on March 3, but was told by Gary
Sawtelle, district postal service spokesperson, there
was nothing in writing and they only had verbal com-
munication with the future plaza's owner Jim Toomey.
Sawtelle also said that Presnell. while investigating
the proposal, visited the site of Toomey's Bayview Plaza,
the future re retail development across from the city pier.
Presnell said the post office at 9908 Gulf Drive has
outgrown its present facility, therefore planning is un-
derway to either enlarge the present facility, move to
an existing building or build a new post office.
The postal service is looking to acquire a building
with 4,000 square feet and if a new building is con-
structed, a little more than one acre of land is needed.
Presnell said.
Znika and Commissioner George McKay said

Boards, marshal join to make condos safe


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
"Too close for comfort" is a phrase invoked by
residents of Waters Edge condominiums after watch-
ing neighboring units at Playa Encantada being en-
gulfed in flames recently.
"After seeing that horrific fire, we want to be liv-
ing in a safe environment and we're not," said Cornelia
Zanetti, secretary of the Waters Edge condo associa-
tion.
As a result, that association became the first on the
Island to invite Anna Maria/West Side Deputy Fire
Marshal Kurt Lathrop to advise them on fire protection
measures. Lathrop was joined by Fire Inspector Mark
Fultz.
"We want to do what's best to make residents safe
without costing a fortune," Lathrop explained. "The
goal is to protect the people."
Lathrop invited representatives of local fire alarm and
sprinkler companies to meet with him and condo represen-
tatives at the building last week. The group did a walk-
through of the buildings and Lathrop pointed out what
types and numbers of alarms should be installed.

Post office may relocate

in Anna Maria
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

there isn't an acre of land left in the city and asked what
the alternate plan would be.
Presnell said the alternative would be for someone
to offer an existing building that would fit the postal
service's needs as best as possible.
McKay said that narrows it down to one option
unless the post office takes over the entire plaza where
it is presently located.
McKay asked if Ted Cole, owner of the plaza.for
24 years, has offered to rent the entire plaza to the
postal service.
Presnell said he hasn't, but he's welcome to offer
that when it's advertised.
The size of the present facility is 2,821 square feet,
excluding parking.
The postal service will publicly advertise for an
alternate location beginning in six weeks. In the mean-
time, constructive ideas or suggestions from residents
are welcome, Presnell.said.
She said a form is available at the post office for
people who are interested in making an offer.
Cole's lease with the postal service is a fixed-term
lease beginning in September each year and ending
August 31. A clause in the lease gives the post office
a 30-day out.
The postal service presently pays $48,408 annually
for its space.
Vice Mayor Robert McElheny asked what kind of
time frame was involved in the process.
After the ad runs for 3Q days, Presnell said she will
put together a site review group comprising herself, a
designated construction member, the postmaster and
other people involved with postal operations, as well as
members from postal service retail division.
The postal service will then address the city again
with its offers and an explanation as to what.may or
may not meet the need. Another six weeks will be al-
lowed for comments from the community before the
postal service makes its final decision.
What this boils down to is four to six months if a
new building is constructed and three to four months
if the postal service acquires an existing building,
Presnell said.
Anna Maria Postmaster Ron Smith said the work-
ers at the post office have only 600 square feet of room
with which to work and the conditions are cramped.
A resident asked how many boxholders are not
residents. She suggested that if the post office limited
its boxes to Anna Maria residents only, there wouldn't
be a need for a new facility.
Smith said that wouldn't make a difference. Of the
2,128 boxes-installed, only 200 belong to non-residents.
Znika said the post office is like a "sacred monu-
ment" to the community and encourages input from
residents. Residents may drop correspondence off at
city hall and it will be forwarded to Presnell, or she may
be contacted directly.
For more information, contact Deputy City Clerk
Jerice Wing at 778-0781.


"We want to know what our alternatives are," said
George Wilson, vice president of the association.
Each of the condo's two buildings has 20 units on
two floors with common hallways. The buildings were
constructed in 1974 and condo association members
said they have been unable to locate floor plans.
"Right now the buildings have pull stations [alarms
manually activated by residents] that only sound on the
premises," Lathrop said. "Residents had the miscon-
ception that once they pulled an alarm it was dispatched
to 911. That's not the case, so we want to upgrade the
alarms to a monitoring system."
In addition, the audibility of the alarm system will
be upgraded to horns with strobe lights, so residents
can hear it more easily, and smoke detectors will be
installed in the hallways and at exits. The association
may also add audible alarms and smoke detectors in
each unit.
With regard to retrofitting a sprinkler system,
Lathrop said it can be a difficult and costly job and in
the case of Playa Encantada, there is very little room
for one. He recommended a standpipe system consist-
ing of a water pipe running the length of the building
with connections into the stairwells.
"What they are doing is on their own," Lathrop
noted. "We really appreciate it, because we can't make
them do anything [in an existing building]. We want to
give them every option."
Lathrop and Fultz also performed the same service


at Playa Encantada where the remaining building will
be retrofitted with fire and smoke alarms and either a'
standpipe or sprinkler system. The portion that will be
reconstructed will adhere to all fire prevention require-
ments.
Lathrop also asked firefighters to walk through the
buildings at Waters Edge in order to become familiar
with the layout and identify any problems that could
hamper firefighting in the future.
Firefighters pointed out how condominiums' floors
are inconsistently numbered, which can be confusing.
The first floor can be either the ground level or the first
floor with occupied units, depending on the condo-
minium.
For example, when Capt. Dennis Dotson arrived at
Playa Encantada to investigate the report of smoke
coming from the "second floor," he first went to the
first occupied floor, because he considered the ground
level the first floor. The fire was actually on the next
floor up, which at Playa Encantada was numbered as
the "second floor."
This is one problem that can be alleviated with the
walk-through inspections. Others include identifying
building and roof access areas and ventilation points.
Lathrop said other condominium associations that
have asked for recommendations are Phase II of West
Bay Point Moorings in Holmes Beach and the Water-
way in Cortez. Lathrop can be contacted by calling the
district's fire prevention bureau at 741-3900.

Holmes Beach deluged with decisions


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Because Holmes Beach city commissioners haven't
held a work session since Feb. 9, Commission Chairman
Roger Lutz set two work sessions for the first week of
April in order to catch up with the backlog.
Commissioners will have no lack of work. In ad-
dition to new agenda items they must consider, numer-
ous issues were put on the back burner in February.
These include:
Deciding whether the city should use public ser-
vice workers, what to do about the discolored city hall
Sroof panels and how to pay for city hall.
Adopting definitions of essential service and do-
ing business in a iesidefitial area.
Establishing policies on uses of the commission
chamber and uses of the city right of ways.

Decisions, decisions
At the last work session, commissioners consid-
ered entering into a contract with the county in order
to use public service workers. Commissioners learned
that while the labor is free, the city is liable for the-
workers the same as it is for its employees such as pro-
viding for workman's compensation.
As Commissioner Roger Lutz noted, "One bad
back negates a lot of free labor."
Commissioners agreed to find out the cost of using
the workers before making a decision.
In the contract, the city will also be responsible for
reviewing the applicants with the right to reject appli-
cants, defining work assignments, supervising the
workers, providing a safe working environment,, docu-
menting the work hours, notifying the county of prob-
lems with workers.
The problem of discolored roof panels on the new
city hall has plagued commissioners since the
building's completion in January. Offers and counter
offers have passed between the commission and the
contractor with no solution as yet.
Contractor Jon Swift Inc. initially offered three


options:
Replace the panels that don't match
Paint the existing roof and provide the city with
a five-year warranty on the paint. The original 20-year
warranty on the roof would remain in effect.
Give the city a $10,000 credit to accept the roof
"as is."
Commissioners then asked Swift to paint the roof
to match the green lights installed in the parking lot,
plus offer enough money to have the roof painted sev-
eral times in the future.
In a letter to the city, Swift made a counter offer to
paint the roof metallic gray at a cost of $21,330. The
letter noted, "We have not offered to paint the roof
patina green nor can we afford to offer the city a credit
equal to three additional paintings."
Commissioners wrestled with options on paying
for city hall in February. They found two using tax
dollars or funds from the one-cent infrastructure tax.
If commissioners pay the balance of the loan,
which will be $1,073,531 on Sept. 1, it will eliminate
$200,000 in infrastructure tax money that was budgeted
for unallocated projects. Variations include paying a
large amount down on the loan and financing future
projects. City Treasurer Rick Ashley is researching op-
tions to present to commissioners.

Developing definitions
The issue of crafting a definition of essential ser-
vices surfaced when the commissioners were develop-
ing the cellular tower ordinance. They learned that es-
sential services are allowed in all zoning districts via
a special exception and site plan review.
City Attorney Patricia Petruff pointed out that the
city's land development code defines essential services
as water, sanitary sewer, storm drainage, solid waste,
telephone, cable television, gas and electrical collection
or distribution systems serving the city.
Petruff suggested treating essential services on two
levels. Pipes, cables fibers, and the like which deliver
the services would be allowed in all zoning districts.


Structures such as buildings and towers would be lim-
ited to designated zoning districts.
Commissioners instructed Petruff to draft an ordi-
nance for discussion.
Defining the act of doing business in a residential
area stems from the commission's long, on-going battle
to develop an ordinance regulating residential rentals
in zoning districts that lack regulations.
One problem is, according to the city's code, do-
ing business in a residential area is prohibited. How-
ever, renting is considered doing business.
Commissioners are considering a solution that adds
renting real property to the definition of doing business,
but allows those who wish to rent their residences to
apply for home occupation licenses, as is done in the
town of Longboat Key.

Establishing policies in uses
A flap over who should be permitted to use the
commission chamber erupted after commissioners de-
nied The Islander Bystander use of city hall for a can-
didates' forum. Mayor Carol Whitmore reversed the
decision because the use was approved before the com-
mission acted.
Commissioners then becanie engaged in a debate
over whether to allow community organizations that
are open to the public to use the chamber or whether to
limit its use to governmental entities. Subsequently,
Whitmore developed two sets of procedures concern-
ing the use of the building for commissioners to con-
sider.
Developing an ordinance to regulate the city's
rights of way came after Code Enforcement Officer
Walter Wunderlich's plea that he needed it to help him
enforce the city's codes. Wunderlich pointed out that
many residents are unaware that there is a city right of
way on their property and that others have put rocks
and fences in the rights of way to prevent parking.
Commissioners drafted an ordinance but canned it

Lot clearing unclear
Property off Manatee Avenue near Sixth
Avenue was the focus of environmental
regulators as workers cleared the lot under
questionable circumstances. According to
Holmes Beach Assistant Superintendent of
Public Works Bill Saunders, the city granted
a permit to clear the lots. However, South-
west Florida Water Management District's
Bob Soklaski said that although there were
mangroves on the lot, they were there mostly
as a result of a mosquito ditch dug in the
1950s and the usually protected trees were
exempt from state rule. However, state law
does prohibit development forward of the
line, and the integrity of the mosquito ditch
must be maintained, elements Soklaski said
had not been met by developer Ian
Perryman. Soklaski said Perryman and his
consultants had agreed to work with
Swiftmud and no civil charges were being
Considered, and workers removed the
earthen berms that once breached the ditch.
Holmes Beach's Saunders said Perryman
.- had made no formal request for permits for
Sthe property, but said current zoning would
allow about 18 units on the property. Is-

in December because they felt it was not adequate. It
would have permitted low landscaping, such sod or
ground cover, within the rights of way. However, any-
thing that obstructed the use of the rights of way could
be removed by the city.
Maloney then suggested that any resident who
wishes to plant in the city's rights of way submit a site
plan to the public works department and be required to
sign a right of way incursion agreement. According to
the agreement, the resident must remove the plantings
if the city needs to use the area.
Commissioners are slated to discuss this sugges-
tion at a work session.


Mayor appoints commission liaisons


Holmes Beach Mayor Carol Whitmore made the
following liaison appointments at the commission's
first meeting last week:
Rich Bohnenberger: Tourist Development Coun-
cil, Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce,
Manasota League of Cities, legislative issues and
Florida Department of Community Affairs.
Pat Geyer: buildings and grounds; roads, bridges,
drainage, canals and erosion; public relations and po-
lice department.
Sandy Haas-Martens: alternative to Island Trans-
portation Planning Organization, Manatee County gov-
ernment, Anna Maria Island Community Center,

Program.
Roger Lutz: beautification, parks and recreation,
Keep Manatee Beautiful and planning commission.
Don Maloney: recycling and solid waste, Anna
Maria Elementary School, Island Emergency .Opera-
tions Center and Holmes Beach Civic Association.
Commissioners reappointed the firm of Dye, Scott,
Prather and Petruff as the city's attorneys. The firm has
held this position for more than 20 years.
Commissioners reappointed Sue Normand and Sylvia
Harris to the planning commission and Alfred Howblitzell
and Ted Geerarts to the code enforcement board.

Bye, Bye Birdie
Baseball great Birdie Tebbetts was in the "big
show" from 1936 to 1994 58 years. He passed
away last Wednesday morning as much in control as
he was in life. He called the shots, even to the end.
If you were lucky enough to know him and he
lived here since the mid-1950s you were lucky to
share his life experiences through the stories he
loved to tell.
Was he reliving the past? Of course. But it was
so much more with Birdie. He was a thinker. His
motivation went beyond impressing us with his wit
and prowess. He was a philosopher and he was
teaching us about life. Every story had a moral. Like
the TV shows some of us are old enough to remem-
ber Ozzie and Harriet, Leave it to Beaver.
When Birdie received-his fifth World Series ring
from the Florida Marlins, we were there in awe
of a man who had done so much for baseball.
He put the ring on for a picture and daughter Su-
san protested he wasn't dressed or shaved.
But Birdie gave her his "wave," slipped it on, put
his hand up to his chin and gave a look, that look you
saw so often when he came to a punchline that
twinkle in his eye and that was the picture.
He outshone the diamonds on that golf-ball-size"
ring. The picture went on the cover of the newspa-
per with a story that the soon-to-be-built Holmes
Beach field would be named in his honor.
And while he tried to be humble about that he
also admitted he loved it. He was flattered and hon-
ored. It was as if we were naming Yankee Stadium
after him.
"I think it's the greatest thing in the world. Of
course, it's the greatest thing that ever happened.
And, it's a very wonderful thing for my family.
They're all coming back here when [the dedication]
happens."
In February, we talked over the design for the
sign that will be at the field entrance with a bor-
rowed image from Time magazine's July 1957 cover
depicting him in his glory as baseball's Manager of
the Year with the Cincinnati Reds and he ap-
proved.
On our little field of dreams in Holmes Beach,
Birdie can be remembered and maybe in some
small way, continue to make a difference in the lives
of ball players.
He certainly made a big difference in baseball,
in the lives of his family and friends, and in one par-
ticular newspaper publisher.
Thanks, Birdie.
We were lucky to know him.

iYOUl OI : ION I


In loving memory
I have had residents ask me if Manatee County
would consider dedicating the pier at the Manatee
County Public Beach Pier to one of your long-time
former employees, the late Dave Miller.
Dave was a lifeguard for many years and passed
away with pancreatic cancer in 1994. Dave was a resi-
dent of the island and a friend to Islanders and visitors.
Please consider this request.
Carol Whitmore, Mayor of Holmes Beach
Editor's note: This letter was addressed to Danny
Hopkins, director of parks and recreation for Manatee
County and shared with us by Whitmore.

Questions Cortez handling
I was, to say the least, extremely disappointed to read
your editorial and accompanying cartoon in your March
10, 1999, issue. It surely must have been a slow news
week on the Island for your editorial staff to choose the
unfortunate and tragic event which took place in the
woods east of Cortez village for your subject matter.
The way in which you characterized the homeless
calp as "filthy," and by innuendo that it harbored stolen
property, was totally uncalled for.
A man who was well known on the Cortez waterfront
and well liked by most who knew him is dead. This man
has family and friends in the area and I don't believe they
appreciate reading your opinion, which leads readers to
believe the inhabitants of this camp were somehow less
than human because they were down on their luck and
living in the woods.
I visited the camp several years ago and found it not
unlike many of the cracker hunting camps I remember
from my youth. To be honest, the site displayed a great
deal of ingenuity and self-sufficiency on the part of its
inhabitants.
A friend of mine, who has family in the village, lived
out there for years by choice.
I-do not personally know of one individual that has
had anything stolen from them or harmed in any way by
the men who lived there.
I suppose if all this had taken place in Bradenton or
Palmetto, it would not raise an eyebrow at the Bystander.
As to your claim of the camp being clandestine in
nature, a reporter from the Bradenton Herald stumbled on


the scene quite a few years ago while investigating illegal
dumping and actually interviewed and quoted the man
charged with Lonnie's murder.
As for Lonnie Poole, goodbye Bud, we'll miss you.
Capt. J. Zacharias, Cortez

Unnecessary loss?
One hopes that public servants strive for truth, good
and fairness as they carry out their official duties. Obser-
vation of last week's activity in Anna Maria City Hall Park
can only disappoint and disgust one, yet again.
In removing concrete benches to make way for re-
cycled plastic benches, Mayor Chuck Shumard and Pub-
lic Works Director Phil Charnock determined that a trac-
tor must be used. The tractor, rather than having been
driven in through two obviously open routes, was driven
over major plantings, crushing unusual and slow-growing
plant specimens which were paid for, planted and cared
for by volunteers.
When questioned about this at the city meeting
March 23. Charnock responded that in the future he
would "work with [the volunteers] any way [the com-
mission] wants."
Considering comments from the mayor and Commis-
sioner Doug Wolfe, this is what Charnock has been do-
ing.
Charnock suggested that the commission declare the
volunteers be allowed to do "care and maintenance, but
not plant new plants."
When Commissioner George McKay asked that he be
advised when work was going to be done on benches,
Charnock responded, "I won't damage-any more plants."
These were interesting exchanges. Additionally inter-
esting is the fact that a person of average build, average
health and well into middle age can single-handedly up
end the concrete benches. Use of the tractor was totally
unnecessary.
One can only wonder, are some of our Anna Maria
Public servants:
a. Ignorant?
b. Incompetent?
c. Mean and petty?
d. Vindictive and acting with malice?
e. Any/all of the above?

Here is how Tampa's waterfront looked when the Beans later to be the first
Anna Maria Island homesteaders arrived in Florida in 1882.


A NIGHT AT


THE OPERA


Compared with thriving Fernandina
Beach and Cedar Keys, Tampa of 1882
was a great disappointment to Abbie
Bean. She was bone-weary after the
long sea and railroad journey from Con-
necticut with seven children one a
babe-in-arms.
The bay was so shallow the steamer
had to tie up on the edge of a mud flat
while the family of nine and their bag-
gage were ferried to the sagging docks
in row boats. Cattle destined for Havana
milled about in filthy pens. The shore
was strewn with seaweed and dead fish,
and the stench was sickening.
George Bean hired a horse and
wagon to take his family for a ride
around town.
Abbie almost wept when she saw
how nondescript Tampa was. All the
downtown businesses were housed in
one or two-story frame buildings,
mostly unpainted. Sand was ankle deep
in all the streets and palmettoes and
weeds grew right down to the ruts made
by oxcarts and drays.
Cows wandered about untethered'
and pigs rooted in garbage heaps at the
sides of the roads. One entire block, it
appeared, was saturated with gambling
dens and saloons.
The only substantial building was
the courthouse in the center of town. It
had been imposing in its day with white
Grecian columns and immense oak trees
shading it. But now it was forlorn. Only


s. -s

F-I





The enlarged and beautified Opera
House on Franklin Street across from
the courthouse gave Tampa some class
in 1884.


on days when court was in session or
holidays were being celebrated did it
take on a festive air.
George had rented temporary
rooms by mail at a boarding house. It
turned out to be at a disreputable-ap-
pearing place near the waterfront. Men
wearing floppy straw hats and boots
lounged on the veranda, smoking and
staring boldly at any women who
passed by.
To Abbie, the only redeeming fea-
ture of the town was "the Garrison,"
where soldiers marched on a wide,
green parade ground. Officially known
as Fort Brooke for its first commander,
Colonel George Mercer Brooke, it was
established in 1824 at the mouth of the
Hillsborough River to protect early set-
tlers all around the shores of Tampa
Bay from the Indians. Abbie and
George enjoyed strolling there in the
cool of the evening.
The first year in Tampa was diffi-
cult. To pay the rent George and his
eldest son, 20-year-old Frank, farmed,
fished and did odd jobs. After a while
George began to take up his old trade
as an apothecary.
One day George came home with
some news. The federal government
had decided to close Fort Brooke
down. The fact was, the garrison had
had no military importance since the
Civil War.
What interested Abbie most as
George knew it would was the ru-
mor that the Garrison might be thrown
open for homesteading. This did not
happen, but some of the buildings were
made available for rent.
In December 1882, when the last
contingent of soldiers marched away, a
number of civilian families moved in
including the Beans.
To celebrate George took Abbie to
the remodeled Branch Opera House to
hear a lecture by Lew Wallace, the au-
thor of the stirring novel, "Ben Hur."
There was nothing that George took
more pleasure in than an eloquent
speech.
As for Abbie, she relished the
chance to dress up and enjoy the com-
pany of refined people for a change.

Birdie

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 I


of the show. People would be cheering and clapping.
"I was born into it and that was it. When I didn't
come home, my mother knew where I was. I don't
think I was very talented. I just played it and played it
and played it. So I guess I would say of me, 'Baseball
was his life."'
His nephew, George Tebbetts, said Birdie once
paid a man $5 to take him to a game where at the age
of nine Birdie warmed up the legendary Lefty Grove.
The first pitch flew by Birdie's ear..The next hit his
glove and bounced off his chest. Birdie turned to the
manager and said, "I got him now."
Birdie stories are endless and meaningful, in par-
ticular the ones about how to treat people as you would
want to be treated.
Most of his friends would tell you he never knew
a stranger, because he never turned away from anyone
.who wanted to talk baseball.
And it was apparent with each yarn he would spin
that there was something much deeper than just the
story. There was always a moral or lesson to be learned.
When he saw you understood what he was trying
to tell you, that ever-present twinkle in his sky-blue
eyes would throw off a little more shine.
There's the one about a brush with racism and how
deftly he handled a nasty situation.
Birdie was managing the Cincinnati Reds and the
team was making a bus trip from Tampa to Miami for
a game.
Along the way the bus stopped for sandwiches.
When Birdie told the owner he needed food for his
team, the owner looked over Birdie's shoulder and saw
black players filing off the bus to stretch their legs.
"We don't serve those kind here," the owner said
pointing to the black players.
Birdie quietly got back on the bus. The team went
to the game hungry.
On the return trip, Birdie got an idea. He called the
inn's owner from Miami and said he needed 80 sand-
wiches and the owner said they would be ready when
he arrived.
The bus stopped, Birdie got off and approached the
man and told him, "Keep your sandwiches. My play-
ers won't eat those kind."
Birdie studied the great minds of history from
Aristotle to St. Thomas Aquinas and followed an
Aquinas tenet most of his life.
"Aquinas said, 'Never affirm. Seldom deny. Al-
ways distinguish.' I thought to myself that I would fol-
low this through my life and see where it took me."
Birdie always seemed to do the right thing, gain-
ing him respect from players and anyone else who
crossed his path.
One thing Birdie used to like to say was, "Baseball
never forgets."
Anyone who ever batted even once in the majors has
a statistic attached to their name. That takes care of a lot
of phony claims, Birdie said. If you played, you're in the
book, specifically the "Encyclopedia of Baseball."


The July 8, 1957, Time magazine featured cover and
story on Birdie Tebbetts, saying, "Old Catcher Tebbetts
at work. He learned to think in a crouch." He was
named National League Manager of the Year.


In 1,162 games, Birdie's lifetime average was .270,
he played in four All-Star games in a 14-year career
with the Detroit Tigers, Boston Red Sox and Cleveland
Indians.
After retiring as a player, Birdie's keen mind led
him to managerial jobs with the Cincinnati Reds, Mil-
waukee Braves and the Indians.
Boston fans picked Birdie as the team's best
catcher from 1930-1980, not Carlton Fisk. He's also in
the Sports Hall of Fame for Providence College.
In 1954 Birdie took over the Reds, a team that had
wallowed in the cellar for years. Two years later he
pushed a young team to within two games of winning
the National League pennant.
The turnaround earned him National League Man-
ager of the Year. He was featured on the cover of Time
magazine with a detailed article regarding his philoso-
phy of the game and how to push players to exceed
their own limits.
Here is an excerpt from the Time story: "If my
players like me, it's an accident of personalities. I hap-
pen to like my players and I treat them like men. I don't
know anything.about patting one guy on the back and
bawling another out. I don't have any doghouses and
I don't deal in personalities. It doesn't matter to me if
a guy has a good or bad personality. I play talent.
"If a guy is not producing and I can't use him, it's
not that he's in the doghouse, but that he isn't contrib-
uting to the overall picture.
"If a manager doesn't have confidence in his
ballplayers, even when they're going badly, they're not
going to have confidence in themselves. And when a
ballplayer's confidence is gone, you haven't got a
ballplayer, I don't give a damn how great he is.
"The rest of it a ballplayer has to do for himself. He
takes the bat up to the plate. He fields the ball. He
throws the ball. If you want to be a good manager, get
good ballplayers."
Always pragmatic. Always the logician.
After suffering a heart attack in 1968, he became
a scout for the New York Mets, New York Yankees,
Baltimore Orioles and the Florida Marlins, retiring in
1994. During his career Birdie earned five World Se-
ries rings.
Like most baseball fanatics, Birdie enjoyed being
able to rattle off statistics. His knowledge and memory
on statistics were unparalleled and he counted himself
among the three greatest baseball fans ever.
One was the late Lou Fiorentino, former Little
League coach and Anna Maria Island's favorite bar-
tender, then Birdie. Another was a guy who tripped
Birdie up on a question.
"When you travel like baseball players travel.

Bang. One city, then the next city, then the next city.
Pretty soon there's some place you have to go where
you are familiar and the people are familiar to you and
you're comfortable. In Chicago I had a table. Same
table. Same waitress. They knew when I was in town.
"So I make the statement one day that I was the
only player in the history of baseball to have exactly
1,000 hits. This guy was at the restaurant and he was
there every time I was in there and he was a brain like
Lou. He knew every baseball fact there was and he had
a kid who was a teenager who was following in his
footsteps and they heard me make this statement.
"The next night I came back and they said I wasn't
the only one with 1,000 hits. I told them that couldn't
be. And they told me his name was Dee Fundy and that
Fundy played for me. And they said, look him up. I
looked in the book. Dee Fundy. 1,000 hits. I told them
if I had known that about Fundy, I would have put him
up as a pinch hitter two or three more times.
"The strangest thing was, I asked them how they
found out and they said they stayed up all night and
went through every name in the book."
On asking Birdie why he thought people are so
fascinated with statistics that they would go to that
length to find out something, he gave a puzzled look
and said emphatically, "Because, it's baseball."
And then there's the one where Birdie said he got
into a fight one time with a guy named Ben Chapman
with the Yankees when he was catching with Detroit.
"We were sitting in the Yankee dugout after the
game having a last cigarette when Lou Gehrig asks,
'Tebbetts here?"
"I said, 'yessir.'
"Gehrig said, 'Did you hit him good?'
"I said, 'yessir.' Gehrig didn't like Chapman. No-
body did.
"So Gehrig says to me, 'You ever get a chance to
hit him again, I'll buy you the best suit ever made in
New York City.'
"We were all laughing, but it was the only time
anybody ever heard Gehrig say anything about any-
body. I also never got in a fight with Ben Chapman
again."
During his playing days Birdie said baseball had
two Gods, the greatest players of their era. They were
legends then and remain so to this day. Birdie was talk-
ing about Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams.
"We admired them the most. They represented us
the best and I wonder what we will have when they go.
If Ted Williams dies, we're losing a great image of
baseball. And if Joe DiMaggio dies too, baseball has no

one left. They are living legends. On my obituary I
think it should be written 'Not in the DiMaggio-Will-
iams class.'"
(This interview was conducted Feb. 2. DiMaggio
died March 8.)
Williams and Birdie were close friends and talked
at least once a week on the phone. Williams probably
would disagree with Birdie's assessment about not be-
ing in the same class. Maybe not as famous as
DiMaggio or Williams, but certainly in the same class.
Williams became concerned recently when he
couldn't reach Birdie and kept getting Birdie's answer-
ing machine. He told his daughter, "Find Birdie
Tebbetts and don't come back until you do."
They found Tebbetts, hospitalized on March 1, and
Williams managed to stay in touch.
The one thing that stayed with Birdie throughout


his life was that baseball is the only game that means
anything.
"Baseball is the greatest game there ever was.
Baseball players take care of each other. They take care
of their own.
"When you look back on baseball, the game I
played and the guys who were in it, it was a pretty nasty
game. It was a tough go. In 1934 when I first came to
the major leagues, I don't think there were more than
five college graduates in the majors. (Birdie was one of
them, earning a degree in philosophy from Providence
College in Providence, Rhode Island).
"Most of the players then were out of a mountain,
out of a hill, or a little tiny town. That's the kind of
game I was brought up in.
"You asked if I would do it again? I'd start all over,
slow down and enjoy every minute. It's a wonderful life."
And so it was for Birdie Tebbetts.
As for his nickname, Birdie, an aunt observed his


mouth looked like a bird upon first observation in the
cradle and "bird" stuck.
Later on, during Industrial League play (pre-ma-
jors), Birdie said he was playing in Beaumont, Texas,
when a radio announcer called him "Tidbits" during the
play by play.
Birdie said he marched himself over to the radio
station after the game and straightened the guy out. "I
already have a nickname (he was on the roster as
George) and I'm sure not gonna be called 'Tidbits,' af-
ter a snack cracker," he told him.
Birdie is survived by daughters Elizabeth DeLuca
of Peachtree City, Ga., Susan Mitchell of Jacksonville,
Patricia Kirton of Port Orange, son George Tebbetts Jr.
of Bradenton and sister Kathryn Tebbetts of Nashua,
N.H.
Memorial contributions in Birdie's name may be

experiences to help committee members determine
which camps might be beneficial to future scholarship
recipients. They submitted the following reports:

Air Force camp
We lived on a real Air Force base and we got to go
into AC-130s. AC-130s are a type of plane. We went
on a real optical course. It was the one that the Air
Force uses. We went under barbed wire and we trained
the same way the Air Force does. We went to a Navy
museum and an Air Force Museum. At the museums
we saw lots of planes. My favorite planes that I saw
were the Harrier Jet and the F-16 Fighting Falcon. They
treated us like we were actually in the Air Force. We
marched and we had physical training. It was lots of
fun and I am sad that it is over. It was one of the best
weeks of my life. Robbie Dial, 12.
We took a bus to Eglin Air Force Base (near
Pensacola). We learned about being in the Air Force. We
learned about air planes. I made lots of friends. We went
to two museums. We saw an Imax movie, saw the Blue
Angels and sat in cockpits. We had parties. We snuck food
into our rooms. Our bus on the way back broke down. We
were at ajail for seven hours. That was fun. We got back
at 6:30 the next day. I liked camp a lot. Thank you.
Nicholas Surprenant, 13.


Women Contemporary
Artists exhibit
The Anna Maria Island Art League will
present a Women Contemporary Artists members
exhibit starting with a reception at 5:30 p.m. Fri-
day, April 2, and ending April 29.
Ginger White, director of the league, said

The show will be at the league's quarters at
5312 Holmes Blvd., Holmes Beach, from 8:45
a.m. until 2:45 p.m. Tuesday through Fridays.


clude goods, services and gift certificates donated by
Island businesses.
Guest bartenders are welcome to try their hand at
pouring libations for a $20 donation. Sign up at The Tip

The scholarship fund is a memorial to Fiorentino,
a long-time Island Little League coach and umpire and
Island bartender. After Fiorentino died suddenly of a
heart attack in February 1998 friends organized a ben-
efit to raise funds for the scholarships.
A portion of the proceeds from the 1998 benefit were
used to send 16 Island fourth-through-eighth-students to
summer residential camps, including sports, science,
music and religious camps. The remainder was deposited
in a special account by the Center to be used for future
scholarships, which will be awarded annually.


Music honors camp
At my summer camp, I met lots of new friends and
got a feel of what college may be like if I major in
music (for example, practice time and staying in
dorms). Each day I had a theory class for an hour, then
a piano literature class for an hour, then I practiced the
piano for two hours. Next I had lunch, then I practiced
for two more hours, Finally, I had a master class for an
hour where the campers played a memorized piece for
a piano professor and he critiqued it. Also during prac-
tice time, we had two 45 minute lessons a week. My
experience was a fun and memorable one and I learned
a lot.
Shawna Rigney, 14.

Sports camps
We wake up in the morning at 7:30 a.m. There is
an instructional every morning and then a recreational
time to play homerun'derby and other things. In the
afternoon there is a baseball game followed by dinner.
The meals at this camp are OK. That night, if you
brought money, you can take some out of their bank
that they have there. There is a concession stand open
nearby to buy cokes and candy. There are about seven
bunk beds in each dorm. Under each bunk bed there are
two shelves to store your clothes. There are also lock-
ers to put your baseball equipment in. I highly recom-
mend this to everyone. Come to this camp! P.S. There
is a huge pool with an awesome high dive! Peter
Dowling, 12.
This camp was a lot of fun and very intense. We
woke up early every day to go through stations and play
other schools. JV(the team I played for) was third place
out of the other JV teams with a 12-3 record. I had a
great time and learned a lot and would definitely do it
again. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to go
to this camp. Caitlin Cosgrove, 13.
Thank you very much for the scholarship by the
Lou Fiorentino fund for baseball. I really had a lot of
fun and learned a lot about baseball. The food was good
and the people were really nice. Thanks again.
Kyle Schweitzer.

Christian camp
This summer camp was so awesome. It was the
best week of my life!! I met so many different people
from Honolulu, Hawaii to Augusta, Me. The coun-
selors were so nice. They never yelled once and
when we would ask what we were doing next, they
would never tell us and would leave it to [be] a sur-
prise.
There were mountains surrounding us with a
beautiful lake in the middle of camp and the weather
couldn't get anymore perfect. We also learned about
God every night. We had a very inspirational
speaker who taught us. We had very emotional times
though. (We were so overwhelmed).
Kim DiPaola, 13.

In memorial
Ten baseball seasons have come and gone since the
Cracker wrote the following column:

Mr. Baseball to me
In spring a young man's fancy turns to thoughts of
baseball, to put-a new twist on an old saying ..
This week our Island is alive with a blaze of color as
our boys and girls don their bright, spanking, brand-new
baseball uniforms, The regular Little League season be-
gan last Monday and will run through May. If you love to
see baseball played with reckless exuberance and a lot of
heart, interspersed with a few tears, come on out and yell
for your favorite teams. They need you.
Last week the Cracker took a nostalgic trip back to
1936 for a visit with the Detroit Tigers who train in
Lakeland, Florida. The player-manager of the team was

Baseball Hall of Famer Mickey Cochrane, one of the
feistiest catchers and best strategists the game has ever
known.
Also joining the Tigers that year was a very tal-
ented rookie catcher by the name of George Robert
Tebbetts, who was being groomed by the Tigers to
eventually fill the catcher's shoes of the master. Today,
of course, he is widely known in the world of sports as
Birdie Tebbetts.
The Cracker remembers Birdie catching batting prac-
tice and warming up pitchers during exhibition games at
ol' Henley Field, and also catching a few games.
Mr. Tebbetts received his chance to play regularly
through an unfortunate accident. On May 25, 1937,
Mickey Cochrane was beaned by Yankee pitcher
Bump Hadley, which ended his playing days since
batting helmets had not yet come into use. For the re-
mainder of the year Birdie, Ray Hayworth and the great
young slugger Rudy York shared catching duties.
Birdie played with the Tigers until he was traded to the
Boston Red Sox in 1948, but did miss three seasons due
to World War II. He was traded to the Cleveland Indi-
ans in 1951 and retired as an active player in 1952.
Birdie became manager of the Cincinnati Reds in
1954 and was later manager at Milwaukee and Cleve-
land. After 14 years as a major league player and 11
years as a major league manager, Mr. Tebbetts is still
very active as a teacher of the fine art of catching and
as a scout for new baseball talent.
As a catcher, Birdie was a master at unnerving
opposing batters as they came to the plate. On one oc-
casion, he decided to tell the great hitter Ted Williams
what kind of ball the pitcher would throw to Ted before
the pitcher threw it. This so discombobulated Mr. Wil-
liams and broke his concentration that he struck out all
five times at plate that day, even though he knew be-
forehand what pitch was coming his way.
Mr. Tebbetts was also a very innovative manager.
On at least one occasion, he employed a four-man out-
field by sending his third baseman into the outfield as
insurance against Stan Musial hitting the long ball.
As many of you know, Birdie and his charming wife,
Mary, call Anna Maria Island homeplate. No, the Cracker
does not personally know Mr. Tebbetts, but he did recently
have a brief but interesting chat with Mrs. Tebbetts at

In 1949, Birdie wrote an article for The Atlantic
magazine entitled "I'd Rather Catch," which makes for
fascinating baseball reading and gives the reader some
idea of what makes this great baseballer tick. You prob-
ably don't have a copy of this magazine lying around,
but for your convenience it has been reprinted in The
Second Fireside Book of Baseball, edited by Charles
Einstein and published by Simon and Schuster.
The last line of Birdie's story reads:
"... and I lay no claim to greatness. But it is a great
game.
You are a modest man, Mr. Baseball.

Birdie, while the world of baseball mourns your
passing, we Anna Maria Islanders will always cherish
and remember those years you lived among us.

Spring bird species count set


With the results of the winter bird count tabulated,
the Manatee County unit of the Audubon Society is
planning its spring count of the Gulf Circle, which is
mostly Anna Maria Island.
Unlike the winter count in December, the spring
tabulation will count species only, not the numbers of
birds. It will start at 7 a.m. Apiil 28 on the Palma Sola
Causeway.
From there it will check up on migratory birds on
Perico, at King Fish Boat Ramp, and ultimately split
into two sections to cover Anna Maria Island.
The winter count of the Gulf Circle territory found
5,823 birds, while the Bradenton count saw 37,692.
Gulf Circle results:
Common loon 37, white pelican 25, brown pelican
581, magnificent frigatebird 2, northern gannet 5,
double-crested cormorant 134, anhinga 9, great blue
heron 49, great egret 79, snowy egret 49, little blue
heron 40.

Social season peaking
As we march toward one of my personal favorite
events, the annual auction benefiting Anna Maria Is-
land Community Center on April 17, you must first
take heed to the warning that only a very few tickets
remain.
The added pleasure is seeing normally casually
clad Islanders elegantly attired, sipping champagne and
bidding, bidding, bidding on silent and live auction
items all very happy for the prices paid, money
raised and an evening of splendid wining and dining.
The fellowship hall of St. Bernard Catholic Church
is transformed into a grand ballroom for the event with
elaborate decorations and table displays. The atmo-
sphere is charged with the excitement of a diamond
raffle and the effervescence of the crowd and peaks
with the auctioneers familiar incantation.
See you there, April 17, "with bells on."
Contact Cynthia Finn at the Center, 778-1908, for
ticket information.
Not.so elaborate, but certainly billed for fun, is a
tailgate party coming up at the Bridge Tender Inn on
Sunday, April 10, sponsored by numero-uno Green
Bay Packer fans, Chuck and Joey Lester.
The party begins in the afternoon, and kickoff is

Don't let anyone try to tell you tourist season ends

Saving up
I don't know if you save any time or get any more
daylight than you would if you left the clock as is, but
this is your official reminder that Sunday, April 4, is the
much-heralded day to "spring ahead."
Daylight Saving is the system of setting clocks one
hour ahead so that both sunrise and sunset occur at a
later hour, producing an additional period of daylight
in the evening.
Clocks are set ahead one hour in the spring and set
back to standard time in the fall.
The idea of daylight saving was first advocated
seriously by a British builder, William Willet, in a pam-
phlet "Waste of Daylight," 1907. When questioned as
to why he didn't simply get up an hour earlier, Willet
replied with typical British humor, "What?"
What was more important to me long ago as a par-
ent would have been to put school on a schedule like
work. You know. More like 9 to 5, 8 to 5. At least
something that coincided with day care schedules for
younger kids and normal work hours. The after-school
care dilemma was just that. A dilemma.
At any rate, I learned from the Internet that Day-
light Saving has been used in the U.S. and in many
European countries since World War I, when the sys-
tem was adopted in order to conserve fuel needed to
produce electric power.
During World War II, the U.S. Congress passed a

law putting the entire country on war time, which set
clocks one hour ahead of standard time. Railroad, bus,
and plane scheduling were hampered by time inconsis-
tencies among various cities and states and so the Uni-
form Time Act was enacted by Congress in 1966, es-
tablishing a system of uniform (within each time zone)
daylight saving time throughout the U.S., exempting
only those states in which the legislature voted to keep
standard time.
Enacted in 1986, daylight saving time begins at 2
a.m. on the first Sunday of April and ends at 2 a.m. on
the last Sunday of October.
The Anna Maria Fire District recommends chang-
ing not only your clocks but batteries in smoke detec-
tors when you change to Daylight Saving Time this
weekend to reduce fire losses as a result of dead bat-
teries in the essential, but often forgotten appliances.

The Island Poet
Bud Atteridge
There is a time to be wrong and a time to be right,
But it's time to change the clocks again this Saturday
night.
And once again we have the problem that is shared by
one and all,
Do we push the hands ahead or pull them back in fall?
So we have to get the paper to see what they say,
to see if we save an hour or we're giving one away.
'Cause the paper is always right, and to that I'll say
amen,
But they must be nuts to think I'll change my clocks at
2 a.m.

One of the most widely known and popular of all

the Cross to tell the story of Christ's suffering and

Dollar shell represent the five wounds of Christ .
The Easter Lily is on the front and in its center a five
pointed star representing the Star of Bethlehem.
On the back is the shape of a Christmas Poinset-
tia reminding us of Christ's birthday. Inside the
shell are five pieces resembling the Doves of

Island Easter services feature Sunrise Service


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Sunrise services again will climax Easter worship
services on Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key, and
more than 2,500 persons are expected to participate.
The Anna Maria Island service will be at 6:30 a.m.
and Longboat at 7. Some 2,000 took part in the Island
celebration of the Resurrection last year and more are
expected this year. On Longboat, 500 participated and
the sponsors anticipate a bigger crowd this year.
Experienced worshipers at both all-faith services
stress that people should bring chairs or blankets to sit
on.
Anna Maria Island's worship will be at the Mana-
tee Public Beach where Manatee Avenue meets the
Gulf of Mexico.
A spectacular part of the event will be the big cross
highlighted by the rising sun as the worshipers face into
the sunrise from the beach. The 12-foot cross and the
speaker's platform are provided by the Anna Maria
Island Kiwanis Club.
This is the 35th Easter sunrise service sponsored by
the club. Chairmen of the event are Jeff Asbury and
Bob LoPiccolo.
Rev. Dr. William "Billy" Daws, new pastor of the
Island Baptist Church, will deliver the Easter sermon,
and pastors and representatives of the Island's six other
churches will participate.
Special music will be performed by Sandy Taylor,
choir director of Island Baptist, and her daughter Pam.
LoPiccolo will present the prelude and postlude on the
electric keyboard.
All proceeds will be passed along to the seven Is-
land churches, LoPiccolo said.
The Longboat Key service will feature bagpipe
music by the Riverview High School Bagpipers, play-
ing "Amazing Grace" and other suitable numbers.
It will be at Bayfront Park at midkey, 4052 Gulf of
Mexico Drive. Rev. Charles Shook will deliver the
Easter message. Sponsoring the community service
again this year is the Island Chapel.
In addition to the sunrise services, there are these
other Holy Week and Easter Sunday services at our

Rev. Ben Ingebretson and his wife were here from
Michigan for their annual visit, staying in a home
owned by Roland Johnson in Anna Maria City. An
active outdoorsman, Rev. Ingebretson was exposed to
temptation in the form of a kayak.


There were trophies galore at Saturday's Fourth
Annual Island Bench Press Competition. Islander

"A friend in Anna Maria, Mark Alonso, is a
kayaker and so am I, and he offered his kayak. I
paddled over to Passage Key only to find that it's, a bird
sanctuary and people can't land there.
"Well. That was about 2 o'clock. Egmont Key didn't
look all that far, so I paddled there. The water was rougher
than it looked, and I rolled the kayak just off Egmont. I got
it upright and emptied and found Egmont is a sanctuary
too, at least the part of it where I was."
He paddled around to the public side, rested and
talked with park employees for a bit and readied for the
return. The waves were kicking up and currents strong
by then, about 4 p.m., and no ferry service available.
But there are still Good Samaritans around, he said
later, and a yachtsman who had come ashore from his
trawler offered him a lift.
"He was from Longboat Key, Gordon somebody,
I don't have his last name. He saved me from a lot of
trouble, at least."
The minister is back now in Grand Rapids, Mich., at
the Kentwood Community Church where he is pastor.
As for host Johnson, he had been dispossessed
from his condominium at Playa Encantada by fire a few
nights earlier, and had to move into another home he
owns in Anna Maria. His tenant left a couple of days
earlier than planned.
Johnson, too, found fellow Islanders extremely
helpful in his ordeal. Still, he told Ingebretson he sus-
pected his kayak trip was "more guts than brains," and
said the voyager agreed.
Planning another trip here next March with his wife
Judy, Ingebretson's parting comment was, "The kindness
and goodness of the natives was my salvation."

Ten teams showed up to play in the round-robin,
double-elimination matches. Adin Shank and Herb
Puryear dominated the event, going undefeated to
split the $100 first prize donated by The Islander By-
stander.
Second place went to the team of Ron Pepka and
Bob Hitchcock, who won gift certificates donated by
Bortell's and T-shirts from Rotten Ralph's restaurant.
Tournament organizer Alan Szakacs, a.k.a. Zak,
thanks all the Island merchants who generously do-
nated raffle items and the newspaper for the first-place
cash award. Zak also thanks the players and City Com-
missioner George McKay for helping arrange the tour-
nament at Anna Maria City Hall.
Last, he wanted to thank Pitmaster Rick Weaver,
who feverishly went from pit to pit, sweeping and lev-
eling clay, to make sure everything was in great order.

Mark Sankey reached base four times and scored
four runs, as he used speed to wreak havoc on the base
paths, helping Haley's record a 9-2 win Tuesday,
March 23, at the Anna Maria Island Community Cen-
ter stadium. Chris Nelson got the pitching win, as he
scattered nine hits in five innings of work, striking out
11 batters.
Haley's took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first on
a single by Sankey and after advancing to third on a
stolen base and a passed ball, Blake Tyre plated him

with an RBI ground out. Jordan Bowers then knocked
in Tyre with an RBI triple.
WMFD came back and cut the lead in half when
Anthony Rosas walked and scored on Jan
Fredrickson's double off the wall in center field mak-
ing the score 2-1 in favor of Haley's.
Haley's added another run in the second when
Sankey singled, stole second and rounded the bases to
score when WMFD threw the ball away trying to nail
him at third.
The score remained 3-1 until the bottom of the
fourth when Haley's scored four runs to ice the game.
Michael Wallen got things started when he drew a walk
and after advancing to third, stole home with Skyler
Purcell at bat and Mark Sankey on first. Sankey ad-
vanced to second on the play at the plate allowing him
to easily score ori Blake Tyre's single making the score
5-1.
Jordan Bowers then plated Purcell and Tyre with
a two-run single to extend their lead to 7-1.
The rest of the story for Haley's was Nelson on the
mound as he shut down the WMFD bats except for
Chase Parker's RBI double that scored Eric Whitely.
Supporting Sankey and Nelson were Bowers who
went 2-for-2 with a triple and two RBIs and Tyre who
went 2-for-3 with two RBI and two runs scored. Kevin
Kirn added a bunt single and scored when WMFD
threw the ball away trying to throw him out at first, then
third base.
Chase Parker led WMFD with a double, single
and an RBI while Jan Fredrickson had an RBI
double. Brett Milks added a single to round out the

Bali Hai 8, Kiwanis 2
Bali Hai's Taylor Manning remained undefeated
on the mound with a four-hit, 11 -strikeout performance
against Kiwanis Monday, March 22. Manning also
helped himself at the plate going 3-for-3 with three
doubles and two RBIs.
Supporting Manning were Lorenzo Rivera with a
pair of RBI singles and Chad Richardson, who plated
two runners with a single. Courtney Taylor had an RBI
double and Sean Pittman managed a single and scored
two runs.
Kiwanis was led by Will Langston and Brian
DeBellevue, who both went l-for-2 and scored a run
while Matt McDonough and Evan Wolfe garnered
singles on the evening.

Bali Hai 16, Kiwanis 0
Kiwanis felt good coming into its Thursday, March
25, game knowing they wouldn't have to face Bali
Hai's Taylor Manning, who shut them down earlier in
the week. But Bali Hai pitcher Logan Bystrom had
other plans. Bystrom threw a complete-game, two-hit
shut out to give Bali Hai its second win of the week and
strengthen its hold on first place.
Bystrom, who struck out nine Kiwanis batters,
didn't really have to pitch as well as he did, as his team-
mates pounded out 10 hits and scored 16 runs. Manning
led the way at bat with six RBIs, while going 3-for-4
and scoring three runs. Courtney Taylor went 2-for-4
and scored four runs as did Sean Pittman, who reached
base five times with a single and four walks. Joey
Mattay added a two-run triple and Lorenzo Rivera
plated a run with a single.
Kiwanis' Will Langston got the only two hits off
of Bystrom in the game.

WMFD 8, Haley's Motel 5
Brett Milks helped WMFD salvage a split in the
second of two match ups with Haley's as he pitched
three innings, allowing only five hits and.five runs.
Michael Spicer, with three hits and two RBIs, and
Chase Parker, with a double and two RBIs, led WMFD at
the plate. Michael Cramer added two hits and scored three

Golf anyone?
Since I was unable to get golf reports from Woltze
Sunday Invitational tour players, I dusted off my clubs
- after searching them out from storage and headed
out to Palma Sola Golf Club Sunday, March 28. There
I joined eight other golfers in the weekly tournament.
.The Invitational uses a re-modified Stableford Scor-
ing system in which points are awarded for bogeys, pars,
birdies and eagles. Bogey is good for one point, pars two,
birdies four and eagles bring you six points.
Scoring czar Butch Van Ostenbridge and tour
president Tim Woltze keep track of individual points
to assign an average points per round for each player.


The winner of the invitational is determined by who
shoots the most points over their average, giving every
player an equal shot at winning.
Since I don't have the required three rounds of golf
played, I was left to play for individual skins on each
hole. A skin is won when a player gets the lowest score
on a single hole out of all golfers playing in the invi-
tational. There also is stiff competition to win closest
to the pin on the four par three holes on the course.
In the battle for points, Keith Bernard, Ken Bolek
and Roy Hampton shot four points over their average
to take home top honors for the day, while George
Tebbetts and Tim Lease each played two points over.
Tebbetts and Lease took home closest to the pin
with Lease taking number four and Tebbetts flagging
number 17. Tim Woltze was closest on number 11,
while Ken Bolek won number six.
Bolek and Tebbetts dominated the skins competi-
tion with three each, while Bernard and this writer took
one skin each.
Despite falling apart on the back nine, I think I'm
going to give it another shot next week.
See you on the course. That's it for this week.

Sarasota Bay hits hit home to Islanders


Our friends at the Sarasota Bay National Estuary
Program have been taking some hits lately from poli-
ticians, the public and the press press other than this
publication, that is which probably fall in the ignor-
ing-the-forest-for-the-trees category.
As you probably know, the Sarasota Bay Program
began 10 years ago, leading the charge of restoring and
protecting Sarasota Bay from the north tip of Anna
Maria Island to Venice. The federally authorized pro-
gram was assigned with the task of producing scientific
and technical data to show the current condition of the
bay and to devise steps to improve water quality, natu-
ral resources, marine life, and all the rest of the things
that contribute to a healthy, happy bay system.
Way back then, the bay program spent about $1
million in scientific studies of the bay. The goal was to
fill in the gaps of existing scientific knowledge about
Sarasota Bay with hard facts that could be used as le-
verage for restoration.
A lot of interesting stuff was unearthed about
Sarasota Bay during the studies. You've read about
some of them in this column: seagrass, how important
those spindly little clumps of underwater plants are to
the marine system. Or how mangroves contribute a
huge amount of food and shelter to all sorts of critters.
The bay program also came- up with some quick-
fix solutions for immediate problems that have resulted
in some beautiful areas of native plants for the area.
Coquina BayWalk at Leffis Key in Bradenton
Beach, across the street from Coquina Beach, is a ter-
rific example of what the eco-techs call a "habitat res-
toration project." Using federal, state, regional, local
and private funds to the tune of more than $320,000,

the 30-acre area has been revived to mimic a natural
lagoonal system.
A perimeter channel was dug and the sand heaped
onto a huge mound, perfect for sightseeing. Board-
walks were created with lookout points to add to the
view across Anna Maria Sound. In fact, the northern-
most viewing location has become popular for mar-
riage ceremonies. Exotic vegetation was removed, hun-
dreds of mangroves planted and an area more suitable
for native critters created.
Another project, this one costing $129,000, is un-
derway just north of Leffis Key even as you read this.
The plan is to extend a lagoon near the northern Co-
quina boat ramp to tie in with the existing lagoon. And
here's something neat: Some of the clean sand in the
area where the lagoon will go will be pumped around
the perimeter of a deep hole in the bay, allowing
recolonization of seagrasses in an otherwise barren
place.
The ongoing work is funded by the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Commission as part of a wetlands restoration
effort.
A similar project was planned by the Sarasota

New doings at Leffis Key
A new project is underway at Leffis Key in Bradenton Beach extention of a lagoon at the north end of the
site. Part of the clean sand there will be pumped into the bay to fill in a deep hole and allow recolonization of
seagrasses. Islander Photo: Paul Roat


Bay Project in Little Sarasota Bay, with disastrous
results to the program.
Seems a plan to remove exotic Australian pines,
create a lagoon for mangroves to grow and pump spoil
onto a deep hole in the bay sound familiar? at
Little Edwards Island drew a bunch of flak from resi-
dents on nearby Siesta Key. They said they liked the
pines, enjoyed listening to the crows that nested in
them, and didn't want it changed.
Sarasotans banded together and trooped en masse
to the county commission, which killed the project and
began questioning the viability of the bay program, es-
pecially its public outreach programs.
What the commissioners apparently failed to re-
member is some of the history of the program. It's an
all-too-familiar scenario by politicians: People have
spoken against something, and all the good that has
been done is ignored under the guise of, "Well, what
have you done for me today?"
I'm sure the bay program will overcome this
stumble, as long as people remember the great strides
it has accomplished in the past decade.
Just look at the success of the Florida Yards &
Neighborhoods program, a means for every
homeowner to clean up the bay through the replace-
ment of water-intensive, fertilizer-demanding plants
with native, drought resistant shrubs and trees.
Hundreds of people have replaced grass yards with
plantings that are designed to live in this part of Florida.
An example of the type of lush landscaping that thrives
here is on display at the Tingley Memorial Library in
Bradenton Beach.
The beauty of this program is that it's simple, in-
expensive and cuts down on harmful fertilizer and pes-
ticides that flow into the water directly or through
storm drains when we get afternoon summer thunder-
storms.
And another great stride is growing thanks to the
Sarasota Bay Program a scallop restocking program.
Those little blue-eyed bivalves with their tasty meat
once could be collected by the bucketful throughout the
bay system. When water quality got bad in the early
1970s, scallops couldn't live in the dirty water and vir-
tually disappeared.
Now, though, the bay program is working with
Florida Sea Grant to release scallops in parts of the bay.
They found a small colony of 'em, collected them, and
are growing the little guys in nets until they get to be
big enough to release.
And with the release will come let's hope -
more scallops to grow big and flourish.
Scientists look at scallops as a sign of a clean, pro-
ductive bay system. They're like canaries in coal
mines: as long as they're around, things are just fine.
If they keel over, things are bad.
The fact that scallops can again survive in Sarasota
Bay is a clear example that the Sarasota Bay National
Estuary Program has done its part in restoring and pro-
tecting Sarasota Bay.

Sandscript factoid
In 1996, it was estimated that one whale or dolphin
was killed in offshore driftnets for every 22 swordfish
landed.

Sheepies tops right now, kings on their way


By Capt. Mike Heistand
Sheepshead fishing is at its peak right now, and
anglers have something to start to look forward to:
kingfish action. Scattered reports of big kings are start-
ing to come in, with the prediction that the full spring
run should hit within the next few weeks. Other off-
shore action includes grouper and snapper; and back-
water fishers aie finding trout, scattered snook and red-
fish.
Fishers at the Rod and Reel Pier report catches of
a few mackerel, pompano and sheepshead.
Anglers at the Anna Maria City Pier are reeling
in sheepshead, pompano, mackerel, redfish and some
snook in the mornings.
Annie's Bait & Tackle said that Capt. Zack on the
Dee Jay II said action in the past week has been fair,
with a couple trips producing snook up to 32 inches
long, trout to 24 inches, plus reds, cobia, Spanish mack-
erel and pompano.
Capt. Sam Kimball on the Legend said he's put-
ting charters onto lots and gag and red grouper to 15
pounds in size, caught in about 70 feet of water. He's
also getting lots of mangrove, yellowtail and lane snap-
per, with up to 40 fish per trip, all in the five-pournd
range. Kingfish are starting to show, too, averaging 20
pounds, plus flounder to five pounds and bonita at 12
pounds.
Capt. Matt Denham on the Rip Tide said he's also
getting gag grouper to 15 pounds, red grouper to eight
pounds, yellowtail snapper at five pounds and some 34-
pound kings.
Capt. Thom Smith at Angler's Repair said he's
finding reds in the 27-inch range, trout up to 24 inches
long and lots of small snook.
Capt. Rick Gross said despite white bait hard to
come by, he's still able to get some snook when he can
get out. Other action includes trout to 27 inches and one

Capt. Tom Chaya said sheephead, large Spanish
mackerel up to 29 inches long and lots of small snook
were his best bets.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said kingfish are start-


ing to show up, and the action will only improve during
the next few weeks. Watch for cobia to show up, too, and
snook fishing should start to really get good any day now.
Currently, sheepshead fishing is at its peak.
Good luck and good fishing.
