Restaurateurs offer bids for Anna Maria City Pier


By Susan K. Kesselring
Islander Reporter
This could be the window of opportunity that Anna
Maria city officials are awaiting.
One Island businessman is offering to shoulder the
expense of repairing Anna Maria's city pier in ex-
change for a 10-year lease to operate the restaurant.
Mario Schoenfelder. owner of the Rod & Reel
Motel and Rod & Reel Pier. submitted a proposal
March 3 to do all the necessary repairs to the pier and
buildings. including replacing equipment which is
needed to operate the pier.
He is offering $5,000 a month for rent and stated
he will pay the city six months of rent in advance.
According to the proposal, he said he would oper-
ate a moderately priced family oriented restaurant with
a menu that would include items appropriate for the
fishermen who frequent the pier.
Ron Sheaffer, of Sheaffer Enterprises Inc. in
Petoskey, Mich., also submitted a proposal March 7.
He would bring everything up to code for the pier, res-
taurant and deck. he stated.
"We would be doing this with the intent of leasing
and managing the restaurant/bar at the completion of
the project," Sheaffer stated.
Previous estimates put the cost of restoring the pier
rim -, .t p :, -" .:,: .,2 : -. ...r. -...
z az;- ,. .*,I''X , -,,. ,


between $800,000 and 1 million dollars. Mayor Gary
Deffenbaugh said he would not mortgage the city to
repair the pier and instead plans to garner community
support to raise money for the restoration of the pier.
Deffenbaugh authorized emergency repairs to be
made in order to get the pier open to fishers. It will need
to be shut down in the future as repairs get under way.
The city collected $385 from residents and visitors
at reopening of the pier March 7.
Two other Island restaurant owners also submitted
proposals to lease the restaurant.
Ralph Russell, owner of Rotten Ralph's. offered to
take over the restaurant in October after the city and
John Horne. former tenant and owner of Anna Maria
Oyster Bar, failed to reach agreement following nine
months of lease negotiations.
The former lease expired Sept. 31, 1999.
Russell has also offered to open the bait shop un-
til the city chooses a new tenant.
In his latest proposal, Russell states he would pay
the city the rent it was requesting from Home, which
was $5,000 a month, or six percent of sales, or which-
ever is greater.
The former commission was banking on $90,000
a year from rent.
The other Island business owner is Thomas


Chipain, owner of Gulf Drive Cafe. He stated he would
serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. The hours of opera-

The Ancient Order of Hibernians will host
the third annual St. Patrick's Day breakfast at 9
a.m. Friday, March 17, at the Marina Bay restau-
rant, 5325 Marina Drive, Holmes Beach.
The Irishman or Irishwoman of the Year will
be announced after breakfast, with Irish songs,
stories and a program featuring the Anna Maria
Island Irish Dancers to follow.
Last year and the year before, the Irish break-
fast sold out and many would-be celebrants were
turned away, said co-host Don Maloney. Only paid
reservations will be accepted this year.
Reservations for the $5.50 event may be

Whitmore 'furious' with commission gateway waffling


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
After Holmes Beach city commissioners last week
waffled on accepting a bid for the Gateway to Holmes
Beach grant project, Mayor Carol Whitmore walked
out of the meeting.
"I was furious," Whitmore said later. "We've been
working on this for two years and they've approved
everything up until now. They even approved the main-
tenance agreement. This was the last step."
The matching grant of $48,065 was awarded by the
Florida Department of Transportation last year. It will
be used to beautify the strip of land from the Anna
Maria Island Bridge to the traffic light at East Bay
Drive and Manatee Avenue.
Manatee County officials originally agreed to in-
stall bollards, a series of posts, to help control traffic at
King Fish Boat Ramp and protect landscaping. How-
ever, last year county officials ruled out installing any
bollards that would affect parking and opted to use
them only to protect landscaping.
Commissioners Rich Bohnenberger, Pat Geyer and
Don Maloney said they were concerned about the con-
gested parking situation and were afraid the Gateway
landscaping would compound the problem.


Pier proposers pledge plans
for Anna Maria City Pier

tion would be from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
According to a March 6 proposal, he stated he
would serve high quality food at moderate prices. He
would operate the bait concession, sell various baits,
lures, fishing polls and rentals. He also stated he would
sell drinks, snacks and sandwiches in the bait shop area.
He did not make an offer for rent or lease term.
So just how bad is the pier's condition? Inspection
reports were recently received by the city from Michael
Conley, of Straight Inspection Service, for inspection of
the buildings, and Jim Taylor, of Taylor Made Marine
Construction, for his analysis of the pier's structure.
Taylor reports inspecting 132 pilings on the 85-
foot pier. He said the pilings underneath the "T" sec-
tion, where the bait shop and restaurant sit, are in good
condition. He said 65 of the pilings were good, while
33 were questionable containing small worm holes and
some minor splitting or leaning. Ten of the pilings were
rated poor showing obvious signs of worm infestation
and some small stone crabs living in them and some
splitting or leaning.
There were 24 pilings that were rated the worst,
which he classified as structurally unsound. According
to the report, they are deteriorated, are hollow and have
larger stone crabs living in them.
Taylor states in his report that half of the pilings
along the walkway are classified as questionable or
worse. Most of them are the last half of the walkway.
He recommends the city "optimally" remove and
replace the entire walkway. He said minimally it should
at least replace the last half of the walkway.
According to Conley's report, "Overall, the build-
ing is in fair condition and poorly maintained." Items
listed as safety concerns are repairing the open and
loose junction boxes and cut wires, and servicing the
fire suppression system.
Items he lists as major concerns include repairing
the rotted siding and sealing siding holes and replacing
the roof's damaged cover. He said the lift station is not
operable and the water heaters need to be replaced.
Minor items include servicing the air conditioning
system, and replacing wood post anchors, rotted ceil-
ing sheeting, missing receptacle covers and plates, and
broken plumbing fixtures. He stated all wood fixtures
should be preserved and a termite inspection should be
done.
Anna Maria City paid four contractors nearly
$10,000 in the past two weeks for preliminary repairs
and inspections. Conley's fee was $500. Taylor was
paid $1,000. Gary Oberhoffer, owner of Quality Build-
ers, was paid $7,890 for work that included replacing
approximately 70 decking boards, resetting nail heads,
repairing and straightening side rails and removing and
patching pavement at the pier entrance.
David Carper, owner of Island Pressure Cleaning,
pressured washed the pier up to the "T" section. His bid
was $425.


Project Manager Kim Bereiter of Swan, Moody
and Associates Inc. presented two bids to the commis-
sion. Bids were received from Marvin's Garden and
Landscaping Service Inc. for $46,824.16 and Turner
Tree and Landscape for $46,274.79.
"None of the legal parking will be affected,"
Bereiter told commissioners. "The only bollards being
installed are to protect the landscaping."
"On any given weekend, the majority of those boat
people are parked illegally," Maloney said. "What are
we going to do with them? Is there going to be land-
scaping on the south side of Manatee Avenue also?"
Bereiter said boaters will still be able to park illegally
but they won't be able to drive over the plants. The south
side is included in the landscape plan, she said.
Maloney asked who polices the area.
"It's a county park but it's in our jurisdiction,"
Police Chief Jay Romine replied. "We police it, but it's
not a priority for us because there isn't anywhere else
for them to park. Our biggest complaint is people who
park vehicles for sale for extended periods of time."
Commissioner Sandy Haas-Martens made a motion
to accept Turner's bid but it died for lack of a second.
"I would like to take a good look at exactly what
this involves," Maloney said. "There's too many ifs."


Chairman Roger Lutz reminded commissioners
that the city received a blueprint of the project's design
last year and it is in the city hall conference room.
"My concern is the parking situation,"
Bohnenberger said. "We need to pursue additional
parking for recreational boaters and work with the
county to create that. There are several locations on the
causeway and on the south end of the Island where they
could add boat ramps."
"I don't think that everyone who has a boat thinks
he has some kind of right to come out here and park in
Holmes Beach," Lutz noted. "There's a limited amount
of spaces and that's the way it is. We need more boat
ramps, but I don't think the answer is to turn down a
grant that we've been working on for two years be-
cause it will, in essence, prevent someone from park-
ing illegally."
Bohnenberger noted that what is being described
as illegal parking is really undesignated parking.
Lutz asked Bereiter if the city has a time limit on
making a decision. Bereiter said the project must be
completed by October and the predicted starting date
is April 1.
Commissioners agreed to delay a decision until the
March 28 meeting.


Hurray for Home Tour
Hundreds of people lined up to view five Island houses for the Seventh Annual Home Tour March 11. A
popular house in Anna Maria was the Martin home on Cedar Avenue, where people lined up to tour the
interior. Parking, although a little tight at the homes, was alleviated by the large number of people who
used bicycles to take the tour. Benefitting the Anna Maria Island Community Center, proceeds topped
its best-ever ticket sales at 1,250 sold. A boutique and cafe added nearly $20,174 to the proceeds.

Longboat Bridge project done


The Longboat Pass bridge project is at the
"punch list" stage, final step in the $329,995
project, the Florida Department of Transporta-
tion said Tuesday.
DOT specialists are going through their
long list of items called for in the repair con-
tract, making sure they've all been done to
specified requirements, said Gene O'Dell of
the department's district office in Bartow.
Contractor Hendry Corp. repaired timber
fenders, replaced rotted fenders, replaced dam-
aged concrete with an epoxy mix for longer
life, and placed tons of stone riprap around the
footings of the fender pilings.
The job was delayed during the winter
when more damage than anticipated was found
in the underwater structure of the bridge, and


more stone had to be brought in. Altogether,
O'Dell said, the project had 77 days of exten-
sions for delays, 22 of them caused by weather.
A similar job on the Ringling Bridge from
Sarasota to the islands is on schedule, the DOT
said, and is expected to be completed in late July.
That $1,425,000 contract calls for painting
of the draw span, electrical work, lighting sys-
tem, riprap around the pilings to protect them
from scouring, and replacement of rotted tim-
bers.
Rehabilitation of the Anna Maria Island
Bridge from Bradenton to Holmes Beach was
completed in February, a major project that re-
placed some of the fender pilings, submarine
cables and sidewalks, and put new paint
throughout. Its cost was $951,000.

Turtle needs money to get home Meetings


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Anna wants to go home. But even for turtles, mov-
ing is costly. She needs human help, beyond what's
been done already.
She's the big leatherback turtle stranded on the
Island beach, a flipper so injured and infected from
fishing line that it had to be amputated.
People were good to her, starting with Suzi Fox and
other Anna Maria Islanders who wrestled her to safety, to
the Clearwater Aquarium staffers who saved her with
medications and forced feeding and amputation.
It was difficult all the way, for the injured turtle is
more than 800 pounds, six feet long and eight feet be-
tween flipper tips.
Fox, who holds the state permit for sea turtle pres-
ervation on the Island, mobilized the rescue effort Sat-
urday night, March 4, and now she is mobilizing who-
ever can help Anna with contributions.
The rare turtle, first one Fox has ever seen on the
Gulf Coast, has been in intensive care at the aquarium
and she's doing well, said Glenn Harman, director of
the sea turtle program at the aquarium.
Her wound is still of concern, of course, but al-
ready she is complaining about the accommodations.
She is in a small saltwater tank and is still floating and
has started trying to dive, Fox said.
She was still not eating at midweek, being force-fed


through a tube a sustaining diet of vitamins, crushed crus-
taceans and squid. Her normal staple is jellyfish.
Bloodwork hadn't been done yet, and it is a spe-
cial problem: Nobody in these parts has ever extracted
blood from a turtle so they weren't sure how to go
about it. But it will be done.
It has to be, for everyone concerned wants to re-
turn Anna to the sea as soon as possible.
She is banging on the tank's walls and trying to go
somewhere else. "When she complains of the facilities,"
Fox said, "it's time to let her go."
She has to be fed meanwhile, and monitored for
health problems, and there's that bloodwork. And a
satellite transmitter has to be cemented to her back so
her human "family" can keep track and go help her if
she gets in trouble.
All of that takes money. Fox is calling Turtle
Watch benefactors to dig a little deeper, tracking down
others who have an interest in wildlife preservation,
and sending out a call to the public for help.
Checks should be made out to Turtle Watch and
mailed to Suzi Fox, Turtle Watch, P.O. Box 1632, Anna
Maria City, FL 34216. Or mailed or brought to The Is-
lander, 5404 Marina Drive, Holmes Beach FL 34217.
And don't worry about Anna's survival with a
flipper missing: "We get three-flipper turtles nesting
on our beach every season," said Fox, "and it doesn't
seem to slow them down at all."

If you're Irish, Friday is the day to celebrate; if not, fake it


By Jim Hanson
Sure it's a green day, for the wearing and the
flaunting and even the drinking.
St. Patrick's Day was made for green. Madefrom
green, even. The man who started it all 15 centuries ago
brought green into it just incidentally, it appears.
St. Patrick, whose name wasn't Patrick and who
wasn't Irish, taught the heathen Irish about the Trinity
by using the three-leaf shamrock for illustration of how
three elements could be the same entity.
And the shamrock being green and the Irish being
somewhat literal, green became Irish. This holiday gets


probably more attention around the world than any
other, more "other" than Irish wearing the green. And
drinking green beer. And trying to sing Irish songs.
The man himself was born in 385 or thereabouts in
Wales, Scotland or Roman Britain, named Maewyn or
Succat. He took the name Particius, latin for "patri-
cian," on conversion to Christianity.
Irish raiders got him when he was 16, and he
ended up herding sheep in Antrim or Connaught for
six years before escaping to Gaul and taking up the
priesthood and wangling the assignment of convert-
ing the heathen in Ireland.


There, he was an itinerant padre, building churches
and monastaries and schools and raising the dead and
driving the snakes from Ireland, no great favor to
Florida where so many ended up.
He retired to County Down and died there March
17, 461. It could be just the national perversity, but the
Irish celebrate the date of his death, which they knew,
instead of his birthday, which they didn't.
The U.S. imported St. Patrick's Day along with
a lot of wonderful Irish people and their traditions
and their music and their matchless blarney, all
strongly in evidence this Friday, March 17.

Perico development meeting delayed to April 19


By David Futch
Islander Reporter
Jerry Messick is plenty mad about a proposal to put
almost 900 condominium units and homes on north
Perico Island.
There are a couple of things she has stuck in her
craw about the effects of the Arvida Co. plan for the
island.
Messick represents the Palma Sola Park Associa-
tion that's been around for 75 years. Most of the mem-
bers live along Palma Sola Boulevard and in the area
on the east side of Palma Sola Bay.
What Messick fears most is the drive toward out-
of-control growth and the problems associated with it
such as lack of water and clogged roadways.
"If we don't watch it, we're going to become an-
other Pinellas County," she said. "The project on
Perico Island is for Arvida to come in and make a lot

West Side/Anna Maria
fire boat debuts in Miami
The West Manatee Fire District's new $100,000
fire/rescue boat debuted at the Miami International
Boat Show in Miami in February.
The boat was purchased with a grant awarded to
the West Side Fire District by the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission. The boat will be
shared with the Anna Maria Fire District, which is in
the process of merging with West Side.
The 25-foot Boston Whaler is currently being fea-
tured at the Fire District Instructors Conference in In-
dianapolis, Ind. It will be delivered to West Manatee at
the end of the month.
The boat cost $101,365 with $100,000 funded by
the grant, $1,000 funded by the district and $365
funded by the West Side Volunteer Association.
A boat committee has been working to create stan-
dard operating procedures and training guidelines. All
career firefighters in both districts will be trained in
boat operations with help from the Coast Guard and the
Florida Marine Patrol.


of money and leave us with all the problems. This
project is not sensible development. We're already
having overcrowding troubles in our schools and on
our roads."
Messick is trying to organize a number of
homeowner associations whose members will be af-
fected by Arvida's plans for Perico.
She hopes many area association members will
show up at Bradenton City Hall in the city council
chambers April 19 at 3 p.m. to show their opposition
to building 868 units on 231 acres of the 353-acre par-
cel.
Fishermen are upset about the possibility of
stormwater runoff from the development ruining the
grass flats and fishing off Perico's north point.
Anna Maria Islanders, including all three mayors
and most city commissioners, are concerned about the
time it will take to evacuate the Island if another 1,000-


plus cars are added to the mix of traffic jams on Mana-
tee Avenue.
And Messick said she believes a new bridge to the
Island won't do much to help.
"A four-lane bridge isn't going to alleviate traffic
problems," she said. "It's still going to empty onto a
two-lane road."
Arvida originally scheduled to present their plans
to the Bradenton Planning Commission this week, but
asked to postpone their presentation until April 19.
Although it couldn't be confirmed, one city of
Bradenton official said the company asked to be taken
off this week's agenda because it would have coincided
with another controversial item, the development of
Pine Island in the Braden River.
According to the city planning department, oppo-
nents and proponents of the Perico project come in
every day to look at the plans.


Put up a parking lot?
Large trucks hauled debris last week from the demolished duplex on North Bay Boulevard next to the Hump-
back Bridge in Anna Maria where a parking lot is planned. Jim Toomey owns the six lots on Pine Avenue and
Noith Bay Boulevard across Pine from his retail development, Bayview Plaza. According to a permit issued
by the city, Toomey hired Teddy Sparling to raze the building. Islander Photo: Susan Kesselring

Car tags for evacuation re-entry closer to reality


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Island emergency officials moved one step closer
to issuing car tags to identify residents' vehicles for re-
entry after an evacuation.
At last week's meeting of the Island Emergency
Operations Center officials reviewed a computer soft-
ware program to record and track the tags. The program
was developed by David Silver of Hello Software Inc.
at the request of Bradenton Beach officials.
Silver will present the program to Island elected
officials and city employees at the March 15 meeting
of the Coalition of Barrier Island Elected Officials in
Holmes Beach City a Hall at 7 p.m.

tify handicapped drivers. Stickers similar to automobile

by city and attached to the tags. One tag will be issued
to each household and residents will be charged a small
fee for the tags.
"We have a support program that takes over from
the time the application forms are filled out by resi-
dents," Silver explained. "The data will be centralized
at the West Manatee Fire Station I in Holmes Beach
and tracked by city code."
Silver said data can be tracked using street address,
resident or company name and tag number. If a resident
requests more than one tag for a household, the pro-
gram will flag the entry.
Each entry will include the resident's name, ad-
dress and telephone number; business name, if appli-
cable; property identification number and city code;


sticker color, number, year registered and expiration
date and the make, model, color and tag number of the
vehicle.
West Manatee Fire Chief Andy Price said Silver is
currently entering information from the county's tax
rolls and once a resident has registered, the data can be
completed. Silver said data can be entered at any time.
"For example if we've got three days before the
hurricane is expected to hit and we've got hundreds of
people wanting tags, we don't want a bottleneck at the
computer at the time we should be issuing tags," Sil-
ver explained.
"We can set up a table with three people taking
registration forms and issuing tags. The forms will
stack up and then when it's quiet a week or two later,
we can enter the information."
Anna Maria Mayor Gary Deffenbaugh asked about
rental residences in which the occupants change sev-
eral times a year. Silver said there could be multiple
registrations for one address.
"If we get the bulk of the people to get tags, it will
reduce the lines coming back to the Island after an
evacuation," Silver said. "It will never be a perfect
system, but let's make it good."
"I'm really impressed with what you've done
here," Price told Silver. "I was skeptical that this could
be as simple as [Bradenton Beach Mayor Gail Cole]
said. I'm really impressed with how easy this will be
for the cities to manage and operate."
Officials have not determined how many years the
stickers will be effective before expiring or the cost to
residents. The cost of the software is $500 per city.
Deputy Fire Chief Brett Pollock asked about resi-
dents of the Perico Island/Palma Sola corridor. Price
said he has suggested that Manatee County and the City
of Bradenton implement a similar program for those
residents.
Residents returning to the Island after an evacua-
tion who do not have car tags must have two forms of
identification one with a photo and one proving they
live or own property on the Island, such as a voter reg-
istration card or a utility bill with a corresponding ad-
dress.

Opinion


Help our namesake, please
What had the potential to be a disaster has apparently
turned out to be a slight problem with a happy ending.
That's our summation of the events of the past week
or so with our newest namesake, Anna the leatherback sea
turtle.
Anna washed ashore March just north of the Mana-
tee Public Beach in Holmes Beach. She had been injured
- a boat strike on her back, and a front flipper damaged
by an entangled crab trap line.
What made Anna's appearance here so astonishing is
that she is one of a very unusual species of sea turtles.
Leatherbacks are the most endangered and most rare of all
water-focused turtles. They're also the largest: Anna
weighed in at 852 pounds and stretched more than six feet
from nose to tail. That's about three times the size of a
more common loggerhead sea turtle the ones seen in
the summer nesting on Island's beaches.
The good folks at the Anna Maria Island Turtle
Watch, led by Suzi Fox, were quickly called to the scene.
It took a lot of heaving and a lot of grunting, but the hefty
turtle was eventually placed in a pickup truck, transported
to a larger van, and then whisked away to the Clearwater
Aquarium for treatment.
The wounds on her back proved not to be life threat-
ening. Unfortunately, her flipper was too badly injured and
infected to be treated. It was amputated to save her life.
She has been getting better and better, but is still in
danger. Her caregivers are struggling to feed her and she's
scraping her flipper on her tank as she gains strength.
Since leatherback turtles have not had a great success
rate in captivity, Anna is expected to be released to fend
for herself in the next few days. She'll have a radio trans-
mitter attached to her back to allow researchers to moni-
tor her progress for the next few days and, if she starts to
run into trouble, they'll scoop er, crane lift her up.
Anna is the rarest of the rare. And as Islanders, we've
been committed to helping the more frequent loggerhead
visitors. Leatherback sea turtles are the most threatened -
perhaps even more deserving.
Anna, namesake of Anna Maria Island. will be
tracked for the short term, but she'll be tagged as coming
from Holmes Beach. Our turtle.
Turtle Watch, the aquarium and our turtle need help.
As much as $1,500 is needed for Anna's treatment, medi-
cation, feedings, a radio collar, crane fees and a harness.
You can drop off your donation at The Islander, 5404
Marina Drive, Holmes Beach, or mail it to Turtle Watch,
P.O. Box 1632, Anna Maria FL 34216. After all, if it
weren't for mankind, Anna wouldn't be in her predica-
ment.

Don't wait Anna Maria
The City of Anna Maria has received an offer from
a friend and patron of Anna Maria.
The man offers to rebuild/refurbish the pier at his cost.
He will pay it all! He will pay the city more than twice the
money it has ever received in rent. He wants a 10-year
lease and he will pay the city six months in advance.
One commissioner said let's do it. The other com-
missioners held their opinions in abeyance. Cinderella
has come to Anna Maria, don't wait until midnight!
John Bacich, Anna Maria

Grateful for Publix
When an emergency occurs we always hope to be
somewhere where compassion and concern for one's
well-being is a factor.
Publix in Holmes Beach, our long-awaited and
highly praised new grocery store, is just such a place.
Their consideration and prompt response to my prob-
lem made immediate medical attention available.
Thank you everyone, employees and customers
alike, for your thoughtfulness.
Mary Martin, Anna Maria

Thanks Islander
We felt like you were due a vote of thanks for
keeping the citizens of Anna Maria informed during the
trying times we have experienced during the past four
years. It is people like you that keep this democracy
growing and thriving. It is scary to think what would
happen if we didn't have freedom of the press. Keep up
the good work.
Carol and Bill Mclntyre, Anna Maria

Many thanks
The North American Butterfly Association,
Manasota Chapter, would like to thank the Bradenton
Beach Moose Lodge and Captain John for their hospi-
tality and willingness to help us fundraise for the Anna
Maria Island Butterfly Garden.
Special thanks to many individuals for ticket sales,


S .. . . . . ,- .. . ,1 ;. -

donations and decorating at the Moose. We thank you
for all your help and support this event would have
never happened without you.
The silent auction and dinner were a success thanks
to all the support we received from the Island. Thanks
to all the businesses and individuals who donated items
for the auction and everyone who came to the dinner.
We hope that all the businesses that donated items will
post their certificates with pride on their doors or walls
so that everyone will know that they support the pub-
lic butterfly garden and they can also say thank you.
Nancy Ambrose, Butterfly Garden Chairperson

Thanks again
I would like to thank Chef Michael Hartsaw and
Manatee Memorial Hospital Systems for the wonder-
ful dinner they provided for us at the bonfire at Anna
Maria Island Elementary School. Working with
Michael on this event was very enjoyable.
I would especially like to thank Eric Lightner for
being so helpful and supportive in our efforts to raise
money for the school. I would also like to thank all the
volunteers that have helped make all these PTO Fam-
ily Night dinners a great success.
Caryl Bouziane, Holmes Beach

More thanks
Kudos to Jim Taylor's spectacular fireworks dis-
play at Anna Maria Island Elementary School on Feb.
11. Cindi Harrison, the school's amazing guidance
counselor, had taught the children a beautiful song for
their first-ever school bonfire. Jim meticulously timed
the fireworks to the music a monumental task. The
results were truly awe-inspiring.
As Jim has developed his pyrotechnical wizardry
over the past several years, we Anna Maria Islanders
have been the lucky beneficiaries time and again.
Friday night? Another reminder of how blessed we
are to live in this community.

The beginning of what would be Holmes Beach


e AlerI

Sam Cobb's Legacy
What we now call Holmes Beach started out as
Cobb's Corners more than a century ago.
The story begins in 1891 when a lanky, sandy-haired
25-year-old named Sam Cobb left New Jersey and headed
to Florida with his 23-year-old wife Annie and their two
children, Eddie, 2, and Mazie, a babe in arms. He hoped
the climate would be good for his "bad heart."
Sam's first destination was a spot up the Manatee
River where some Swiss immigrants were trying to
establish a farming colony. Sam was to be secretary to
the head of the colony, Annie would be schoolmarm.
But the settlement lasted only a short time. because
of the hostility of neighboring ranchers. Disappointed
but undaunted, Sam took his family to Tampa where he
went to work for a carriage and wagon maker. Soon he
was made foreman, and his prospects brightened. An-
other child, Louis, was born in 1894.
Tragically, a typhoid epidemic broke out in Tampa
soon after Louis's birth. Both Annie and 5-year-old
Eddie contracted the disease. Eddie died of it. Annie
survived, but just barely.
Sam was desperate. Not in the best of health him-
self, with a sickly, unhappy wife and two tots to watch
over, what was he to do?
Now, it happened that the Cobbs had become ac-
quainted in Tampa with a family from Connecticut 52-
year-old widower George Bean and his seven children, the
three youngest being cared for by 14-year-old Mary Bean.
Her mother had died in Tampa's infamous 1887 yellow
fever epidemic which took the lives of 300 Tampans.
Mary Bean and Annie Cobb, not far apart in ages,
became friends. But in 1893 George Bean decided to
move to the Island of Anna Maria at the mouth of
Tampa Bay. He took with him Mary, now 16, and her
three younger siblings.


When Mary learned of the troubles that had be-
fallen her friend Annie, she invited her to the Island
with her children to recuperate. The Cobbs' stay was
only for a few weeks but that was long enough for
Annie to decide that Anna Maria was where she wanted
to be.
"Mama fell in love with Anna Maria Island," her
youngest daughter wrote years later. "She thought it a
much healthier place to live than Tampa, then still a
pest hole of typhoid, malaria, yellow fever and small-
pox. She was anxious to get away from Tampa."
In the fall of 1895 Sam Cobb filed for a homestead
at mid-Island where there was fertile farming land and
a small harbor. With the help of George Bean and his
elder sons, Sam built a two-story house for his family.
In May of 1897 Sam and Annie had another child, a
daughter, delivered by a midwife. They named her Anna
Maria, and hers was the first recorded birth on the Island.
By 1902 Sam was running a boat works at what
was called Cobb's Corners. It was the Island's first
business.
The community grew slowly mostly with Cobb
relatives. There was "Uncle Ike" Gilman, Annie Cobb's
brother; Sam Cobb's brother Rurick, who settled down
just south of where the Manatee Avenue bridge is today;
Annie Cobb's twin sister, Martha Gilman Raymond; and
sundry descendants, including members of the John R.


Captain Louis S. Cobb died
at age 65, a resident of the
Island since 1898. John
Holmes Jr., the late son of the
city's namesake, told a tale of
how the city was named.
Holmes said a group of men


met at the school to discuss
S' -' incorporating and the talk
eventually turned to what they'd name the town.
Suggestions of Cobb City and Cobb's Corners were
turned down in favor of a more pleasant-sounding
Holes Beach with J.E. Holmes being one of the
larger land owners. And so it was.


Jones and Jose Casanas families.
In 1910 a land boom was under way in Tampa Bay.
(This was the time when George Bean's son Will was
busy building his Anna Maria Beach Resort, which
would be incorporated as the City of Anna Maria in
1923.)
Sam Cobb decided to take a fling at land develop-
ment, filing a plat for "Golden Shores" at the Manatee
County Courthouse. Still on record in courthouse files,
it shows the layout for what is now the entire down-
town section of Holmes Beach.
Cobb named all the streets after fruit. Pomela is the
name he chose for what is now the east-west street
cutting through the Island Shopping Center. We call it
Gulf Drive today. Avocado Street was Sam's name for
what is now known as Marina Drive.
Others streets were Kumquat (57th Street),
Sapadilla (56th Street), Tangerine (55th Street), Mango
(54th Street) and Banana (Holmes Boulevard). The
only "fruit" streets left today are Carissa and Guava,
both less than a block long.
Cobb's scheme was disrupted by World War I,
when he was called upon by Uncle Sam to toil on the
"Liberty Ships" being built at break-neck speed in
Tampa's shipyards. (He also helped build ships during
World War II.)
Sam Cobb made another stab at land development
in 1925. It was to be called Sunrise Acres. But the
Great Depression stymied that project.
Sam died in 1930 at the age of 63, far from wealthy
but loved and respected by everyone who knew him.
Annie out-lived him by 20 years and was present at the
March 13, 1950, meeting where Holmes Beach was
voted into existence.
A newspaper writer recorded this poignant detail:
"Mrs. Cobb, who lives at Cobb Corners, wanted to
know if she lives in the new city. After considerable
discussion it was decided she lives just below the line."
So apparently Annie Cobb wasn't legally a citizen of
the community she and Sam established at least until
the city limit was extended southward some years later.

ASK ROTTEN RALPH

Q: Dear Rotten Ralph,
I'm thinking of going into the
restaurant business. In your
opinion, what are the benefits
of owning a restaurant?
C.S., Florida
A: Dear C.S.
There are lots of benefits to owning a
restaurant. The top benefits are that
you get to bus tables, wash dishes, empty the garbage
pails, replace the toilet paper rolls in the restrooms ( as
long as we have the proper permits). Also because
you'll be dealing with lots of employees and customers,
you'll gain lots of experience in babysitting.
Good Luck you'll need it!

From Nashville to Island, and happily


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
"A person has to stay positively productive," says
Buddy Kalb. "Has to be doing something of value."
He should know. He's had two successful ca-
reers in tandem, one of them continuing and expand-
ing now that he's a full-time resident of Anna Maria
Island.
He's best known as Ray Stevens' songwriter.
"Over the last 10 years I'd say I've written at least half
of what Ray has recorded," he said. And a lot of other
music, too, recorded by such stars as Chet Atkins,
George Burns and Jerry Reed.
His first big one was "Mississippi Squirrel Re-
vival," telling what happened when a squirrel gets
loose in a revival meeting in a church. Pandemonium,
with only the music in control.
Kalb served a two-year hitch in the Navy on a sub-
marine tender in Key West, and he had some local suc-
cess writing and recording then. After the Navy he and
Stevens sort of started out together in the country/west-
ern music business. They knew each other in Atlanta,
both performers then and youngsters in years and in the
business, and later in Nashville.
They worked for the same music publisher, former
radio disc jockey Bill Lowery, who published such
songs as "Key Largo" and "I Never Promised You a
Rose Garden."
But Kalb's interest in performing waned and his
interest in composing strengthened.
"You know, Johnny Mercer recorded for a while
and ended up just writing," Kalb said. "Most musicians
start out wanting to be stars. The business has a way of
sorting things out."
He was sales manager and parts depot manager for
Ford Motor Co. in Atlanta, and later in Michigan and
Kansas City, taking the advice of fellow songwriter
Harlan Howard in Nashville: "He said what we all had
to worry about was what to do with our spare time. We
had a lot of it, and mostly we filled it with trouble. Not
when you have a regular eight-hour job, though."
All the time he kept on writing, selling more for

better money as he went along. Finally he "got enough
songs going so I could quit everything else."
"Of all the people who write songs at every level,"
he said, "about 400 make a living at it."
He started visiting Anna Maria Island and
Longboat Key with airline pilot friends, and quickly
loved this Island. "I decided right away where I needed
to be."
He and his wife Carlene, who occasionally helps
write music, bought a house in Holmes Beach two
years ago, moving in a year or so ago when they got it
fixed up.
He is expanding beyond song writing now, getting
into children's music and prose and verse. And he is

of the music for the Land and Hill duo.
The Kalbs travel a bit, too, mostly to France. He
went to a gourmet cooking school there and helped the
head of his cooking school publish a book called "The
Taste and Colors of Provence." She spent a vacation
with them on Anna Maria in February, and will do so
again next year, Kalb said. "It's nice to help somebody
fulfill a dream."
He is a happy man, content with where and what
he is, glad to be on the Island, glad to be doing some-
thing of value.
"You kind of have to bloom where you're planted
and enjoy what you're doing," he said.

Anna Maria receives resumes for clerk opening


By Susan K. Kesselring
Islander Reporter
Anna Maria Mayor Gary Deffenbaugh has re-
ceived 10 applications for the vacant city clerk/trea-
surer position. He said he is forwarding the applica-
tions to Pat Arends, Longboat Key's town clerk, for
review.
Former City Clerk Laura Vogel resigned her po-
sition Feb. 22.
Deffenbaugh said Arends is reviewing the re-
sumes with other members of the local clerk's asso-
ciation and will forward a short list of recommenda-
tions to him.
He said he'll then ask the selected candidates to
fill out an application before he arranges interviews
at a later date.
Deffenbaugh said he will continue to accept re-
sumes and forward them to Arends until the position
is filled.
He also said he will be losing an administrative
assistant shortly. He would like to replace her posi-
tion with a deputy city clerk and that some of the ap-
plicants applying for the city clerk position may be
considered for deputy city clerk.
The advertisement ran in two daily newspapers
on Saturday and Sunday for three consecutive
weeks. The ad states the city seeks a person to super-
vise city hall's administrative office and prepare the
city's financial statement. Candidates should have
knowledge of the principles and methods of public


administration, municipal government and public
finances. A degree in public administration, business
accounting or a closely related field is preferred, as

ently works at the Silver Sands Resort on Longboat
Key as a front desk clerk. She was a certified mu-
nicipal clerk in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., from 1982 to
1995, and was city manager for three years during
the same period. Schelin has a bachelor's degree in
business administration and received municipal
clerk certification in 1994.

Early resident to speak
to historical society
Bob Bayless, whose family built the first Anna
Maria house at the end of World War II, will relate
memories of his life on the Island beginning more
than 50 years ago at the March 20 meeting of the
Anna Maria Island Historical Society.
The meeting is open to the public and will be
held at Anna Maria City Hall beginning at 7:30 p.m.
The Bayless family moved to the Island in 1947.
An Army post had just vacated the North Point when
the family decided to build its house on the bay.
Bob's father, "Brim" Bayless, a builder and devel-
oper, was a founder of the Island Baptist Church.
Bob attended Manatee High School, graduating
in 1950. In 1951 he joined the Navy and served in
Korea aboard a Navy mine sweeper.
On his return he married Emily Pace from Polk
County, whom he met on the Island. Her parents,
Woody and Florence Pace, have had a summer home
on the Island since 1950.
Bob received a degree in civil engineering from
the University of Florida and became a civil engi-
neer and marine contractor in St. Pete. In 1979 the
family moved to Terra Ceia.
The Baylesses have two daughters and four
grandchildren and enjoy traveling in their motor
home. Bob is active in the local Civil Air Patrol and
works with middle and high school cadets.

Dispose of hazardous waste properly


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
This is a quiz.
Which of the following items is considered hazard-
ous waste a junkie's discarded needle, mothballs,
radioactive materials, spent household batteries or
empty oil-based paint cans?
Answer: All of the above.
Most people don't have hypodermic needles or
plutonium lying around the house, although some bat-
tery-powered ionization-type smoke detectors may
contain radioactive material. But the other items are
commonly found in most households.
Manatee County officials want to educate residents


about items that contain potentially harmful ingredients
and the proper disposal of such items.
The county is sponsoring a free Household Hazard-
ous Waste Collection Program on March 18 from 8
a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Manatee County Public Works
complex, 4410 66th St. W., Bradenton, and at the
Manatee County Fairgrounds, 1303 17th St.W., Pal-
metto, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Households are major contributors of hazardous
waste to the environment. In an effort to reduce pollu-
tion from these wastes, the county established the pro-
gram several years ago. Four times a year, residents
may bring household hazardous waste to designated
locations.


Candish, Thomas join forces in dual art show


By David Futch
Islander Reporter
Islanders Woody Candish and Richard Thomas
appear to be at the opposite ends of artistic expression.
Candish works with a laser cutter to fashion stain-
less steel into sculptures. Thomas sees inspiration in
light, using a brush and watercolor as his medium.
Candish's pieces are welded into natural forms and
are as much for touching and caressing as they are for
gazing.
Thomas paints how light strikes at angles, whether
buildings or people.
The two artists come together Saturday, March 18,
for a dual show at Rosemary Court in Sarasota to dis-
play works in progress over the past year.
The opening reception is from 5 to 9 p.m. at the
gallery, 810 Central Ave. The show will continue
Monday through Saturday for two weeks. Gallery
hours at Rosemary Court are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and ei-
ther Thomas or Candish will be on hand daily.
Asked the meaning of his sculptures, Candish re-
plied, "I don't have a clue. My work has taken a
change. I'm doing more figurative work. It's a new turn
for me. The things I'm doing are a lot different from


what I've done in the past.
"1 like working with steel. It has a good feeling to
it and it's a joy to work with.
"1 guess you'd call what I'm doing now an inter-
pretation of human forms. In one piece, I tried to show
the bond between man, woman and child the fam-
ily unity. But in the end, I don't like to explain my
works. If it doesn't explain itself, then I've failed."
Thomas said most of his new work was done on
location, painting buildings and scenes in and around
Sarasota and St. Petersburg.
Previously Thomas painted ordinary people.
Life as art in a comedic and au natural perverse way
- pictures of sedentary America rolling around in
the sands of Anna Maria Island. Oddballs looking
for a tan, bloated beneath umbrellas and the Florida
sun.
Now for something completely different.
"What I've been working on for the past eight
months are landscapes. I'm dealing with light and how
it changes. Most of the pieces were done in an hour.
"Much of it includes St. Petersburg and Sarasota
buildings and how the light strikes them."
For more information on the show, call 778-4457.


Small businesses that generate small amounts of
hazardous waste can use the 66th Street collection site.
A small fee will assessed on site.
Some common household items that contain poten-
tially harmful ingredients and are not permitted in
curbside waste collection are:
Aerosols.
Artist's paints.
Insect spray, insecticides, fungicides and herbi-
cides.
Car wax with solvent.
Dry cleaning and gun cleaning solvents.
Fiberglass epoxy and glue (solvent based).
Floor care products.
Furniture and metal polish and wood preserva-
tive.
Oil-based paint, varnish and stain.
Paint thinner, stripper and primer.
Photo and pool chemicals.
Household and automotive batteries.
Kerosene, gasoline and diesel fuel.
Ammunition.
Fluorescent light bulbs.
An item is hazardous if it is toxic can poison
living things; if it's ignitable can catch on fire; cor-
rosive can chemically erode another substance or
skin; reactive can interact with other chemicals, or
carcinogenic can cause cancer.
Items that are not acceptable at the collection site
are commercial waste, radioactive materials,
biohazardous waste and explosives.
Items for collection should be transported in the
trunk of a vehicle in sturdy boxes that can be disposed
of along with the waste. Don't store waste in the trunk
prior to the collection date, don't mix chemicals, label
all containers, keep products in their original contain-
ers when possible and don't transport items in leaking
containers.
Residents with questions concerning items for dis-
posal or names of agencies that collect unacceptable
items, can call Manatee County Solid Waste Division,
792-8811, Ext. 5421.

Art, crafts, weather winners at Island's Springfest


Springfest best-of-show winner for two-dimensional
works Jim Wilshire of Roswell, Ga., discusses his
fine watercolor artworks with potential buyers.

Anna Maria Island Springfest, the 12th annual art
and craft festival sponsored by the Anna Maria Island
Art League, was a booming success if you judged by
crowds over the weekend.
On Saturday aisles were shoulder to shoulder with
shoppers perusing the wares of 70-plus artisans and
Sunday was almost as good sunny and breezy. Traf-
fic was heavy and streets were filled with parked cars,
but the reduced size of the field alongside Holmes
Beach City Hall where the show is held didn't seem to
hamper attendance.
Best of show winner for two-dimensional works
was Jim Wilshire of Roswell, Ga., for watercolors.
Mary Gegunde took best of show in three-dimensional

By David Futch
Islander Reporter
It's important to fill out the census forms you'll be
receiving soon in the mail because it means money for
local and state governments.
The federal government doles out cash to cities,
counties and states according to population. Fewer
people or fewer forms filled out means less dollars.
And there is some concern that Holmes Beach
won't get the money it deserves because the city shares
a zip code with Bradenton Beach.
The. potential problem was broached by Gilbert
"Gib" Bergquist who sits on the Holmes Beach Police
Retirement Fund board.
However, Danielle Doane, chief of staff for
Congressman Dan Miller, R-Bradenton, said all the
zip code does is tell the federal government where
people live.
"The bar code on the letter that has been sent out
and the one on the census form is address specific,"
Doane said. "The zip code is a marker but has nothing
to do with how federal money is doled out. It's up to the
people interpreting the data to determine where the
money goes."
Rep. Miller has a spot airing on television urging
people to support the census.


Services were March 10 at Christ Episcopal
Church. Burial will be in Brookmere Cemetery, Cleve-
land. Memorial contributions may be made to the
church, 4030 Manatee Ave. W., Bradenton FL 34205.
Griffith-Cline Funeral Home was in charge of arrange-
ments.

Holmes Beach Lt. Dale Stephenson, secretary-trea-
surer of the Holmes Beach Police Retirement Fund,
said he can't be absolutely sure the city's pension funds
are getting the right amount of money.
"Insurance companies send part of the money they
get for selling property insurance to the police and fire
pension funds of that respective city," Stephenson said.
"In terms of whether we're getting the right amount of
money, it may be no dollars and it may be lots of dol-
lars. I just don't know.
"I would think Rep. Miller would be interested in
this and probably is concerned. If this isn't straightened
out, it could be a problem down the road. Having to use
Bradenton Beach's zip code is a potential problem."
Doane says not to worry.
Lt. Stephenson said he's not. He just wants to make
sure the city's police fund is on the up and up.
"It's hard to tell if we're getting everything we're
entitled to, but I think we're getting what we're entitled
to," he said. "This has been a major issue for a while.
In terms of the pension, I think we're OK."
Bergquist reported at press time that his census
form had arrived with the correct address, including
the city and zip code, but others in Holmes Beach
didn't get the same treatment. Their census forms are
- still addressed to Bradenton Beach.


He is survived by wife Patricia; sons Dillon and
Kevin, both of Bradenton; parents Dennis and Deanna
of Cleveland; sister Denise Morway of Cleveland; and
brothers Steve of Dayton, Ohio, and Allen and Mat-
thew, both of Cleveland.

March 24, Squabbles give us a couple of world-class
whiners who will make you think how lucky you are.
Fate has produced a pair of squabblers in Abe
Dreyfus, played by Gabe Simches, and Mildred Sloan,
played by Phyllis Elfenbein.
Both have peppery personalities and, owing to rever-
sals beyond their control, are forced to move in with their
children, the Sloans.
Accommodations are tight and tension is high and a
resolution seems unlikely.
Linda Davis plays Abe's daughter Alice Sloan.
Mildred Sloan's son, Jerry Sloan, is played by Mark
Schelstrate.
The role of Hector Lopez, a gardener, is played by
Rick Paolillo. Tom Kochery is Sol Wasserman, a friend
of Abe's, and Laura Morales plays Mrs. Fisher.
Geoffrey Todd directs, Ruth Stevens is stage man-
ager, John Flannery is the set designer and Don Bailey
does costumes.
Curtain times are 8 p.m. except for three Sunday
matinees, which start at 2 p.m. There are no performances

Furious WMFD comeback
tops Bali Hai
Michael Cramer stroked a no-ball, two-strike pitch
in the bottom of the sixth inning to drive in two runs
and complete a furious comeback Tuesday, March 7,
to hand West Manatee Fire District an improbable 8-7
win over Bali Hai Resort in Anna Maria's major divi-
sion Little League.
WMFD Manager Andy Price isn't so sure he
would call the win improbable for his team that plays
in the Anna Maria Little League major division.
"What a game. What a comeback," Price said af-
ter the March 7 game. "Over the years none of my
teams ever quit or gave up and this game was an ex-
ample of that. This team just wouldn't quit tonight.
"I think my team has the best skills of any team out
here. The problem is, coming into the season everyone
said we were the team to beat. The kids just thought
they could show up and win. That isn't the case in this
league."
Indeed. Bali Hai looked like they were going to
thrash WMFD. Sean Pittman had pitched four innings,
striking out eight, as Bali Hai built a 7-2 lead,
In the fifth, however, Pittman walked four batters
and WMFD made it 7-3. Pittman was pulled and Tyler
Schneerer came in to close out the game. He retired the
next two WMFD batters on a pop-up and a strikeout to
stop a rally.
WMFD's Sean Price came to the mound in the top
of the sixth and got some two tremendous plays from

SPORTS RAP, FROM PAGE 24
The modified Stableford scoring system rewards
players one point for a bogey, two for par and four for
birdie. Eagles are worth six points.
Each player has a handicap he must reach before
he starts scoring. Of the 50 players on the Sunrise tour,
handicaps range from 10 to 31 points, allowing play-
ers with 10 points to be competitive.
For example, a player with 10 points who makes
five pars, eight bogeys and five double bogeys sits
at plus 8. A player with 31 points must par 15 holes,
make birdie on two holes and double bogey one to
reach plus eight. The handicap system levels the
playing field.
The players who won skins were Morash with two
and one apiece for Darling, myself, Jon Huffman,
Sonny Eastman and tour rookie Mark Kimball.
Closest-to-the-pin "greenies" went to Eastman
who had two and Rob Canada and Corky Parker with
one each.

Manning leads team to basketball title
Taylor Manning, Chase Parker and Eddie
Anderson won the Island's Finest Classic three-on-
three basketball championship March 11 at the Anna
Maria Island Community Center.
The threesome beat the team of Mick Cripe,
Tyler Krauss and Jason Ellis 15-9 as Manning scored
crucial shots and had several rebounds in the win.
Organizer Gerard Ciarleglio, 16, an honors stu-
,dent at Southeast High School from Holmes Beach,
said Manning was the most-valuable player in the
10-team tournament for players age 13 and under.
"In the final, Manning won it with some crucial
three-point shots and rebounds," Ciarleglio said. "He
was really on his game."
Michael Wallen won the slam-dunk contest prior
to the start of the tournament by doing a 360-degree
turn in the air before jamming the ball home.
Ciarleglio organized the tournament for the In-
ternational Bachelorette Program, a group he be-
longs to at Southeast High School.
The IBP allows students to earn college credits
for being leaders at their school in volunteer work.

Kingfish going nuts, bigger ones right behind


By Capt. David Futch
Kingfish have arrived and anglers are catching a lot
of 10 pounders with bigger ones on the way as the
kings make their move north.
At the Rod & Reel Pier, sheepshead and mackerel
have been hot and quite a few pompano were caught
the past week. Fishermen were using jigs, sandfleas
and fiddler crabs. A few redfish were landed but the
snook have been off at the pier.
Bill Lowman at Island Discount Tackle said
there are a lot of cobia around. Look for them anywhere
there's a structure such as the one-mile, three-mile and
seven-mile reefs.
And while you're on you're way out, look for
kings. Better still, troll for them.
"Kingfish have turned on. The season is here. You
can troll for them or live bait for them," Lowman said.
"Like cobia, look for bottom or structure that will hold
bait. That's where they'll be. They're here and worth
the look.
"There are a lot of big trout to 20 inches in the
backwater. More so than last month. Mackerel can be
found at both ends of Anna Maria Island in the passes.
Offshore fishermen need to look for bait because the
mackerel are there. Shiners are getting easier to find
every day."
Annie's Bait & Tackle reporting for Capt. Zach
Zacharias on the Dee-Jay II said Hugh Willard. I1,
and mom Lucinda bested a 25-pound cobia, a 3 1-inch
snook and loads of sheepshead. mackerel, pompano
and flounder last week with Zach. Kings are here in
numbers five to 10 miles offshore, Zacharias said.
Capt. Sam Kimball, who docks his boat Legend
at Annie's next to the Seafood Shack in Cortez. said
fishing is about as good as it gets.
"Kingfish showed up and we caught a pile of them
March 9. I had two half-day trips and caught 20 a trip
and I don't know how many we lost. It's an absolute
ball," Kimball said. "The biggest ones were 15 to 18
pounds and I'm sure there are some bigger ones out
there. They didn't care what we put on. We were us-
ing cut bait, but they were skyrocketing out of the wa-
ter for shrimp. We were about five or six miles out.
"We've been getting a lot of sheepshead to four or
five pounds on the artificial reefs. There's a lot of
mackerel on those reefs, too, and flounder and cobia.
On all-day trips I can get out in 80 feet of water and
catch plenty of grouper."
Lee Goss at Perico Island Bait & Tackle said.
"Fishing has come alive. Everybody I talked to said
they're catching snook around mangrove islands
whether wading or in a boat. Select shrimp seems to be

the bait of choice. Other folks said they're doing pretty
well on trout and redfish on the flats. Mackerel are off
the beaches and kingfish are in 60 to 70 feet of water.
I've heard of some good catches of grouper in water 80
feet deep."
Capt. Curt Morrison on the Neva-Miss also said
March 9 was a killer catch day with snapper, kings and
grouper fighting over the bait. Morrison said this
should continue as long as the weather holds.
"We caught loads of kingfish on spoons while
trolling or using live pinfish or threadfin herring,"
Morrison said. "We got a lot of red and gag grouper in
the 12- to 15-pound range anywhere from eight to 20
miles offshore. Fishing is excellent right now."
Capt. Justin Moore on the Primadonna said red-
fish and snook are hot. Cobia are on the beach and there
are big mackerel around.
"Bait is all over the place and that will turn on the
snook." Moore said. "It's springtime."

Road said he caught plenty of redfish to 20 inches in
Terra Ceia and Miguel bays. Some of the trout he
landed were 12 to 24 inches.
"The 24-inch trout weighed over four pounds. He
took off like a snook, peeling off line. He even
jumped," Smith said. "We're seeing a lot of snook, a
lot of small ones but did see a dozen or so 30 inches or
bigger. They wouldn't bite. We didn't have any white
bait so 1 think they would have bit if I'd had some.
Where I'm seeing snook are in their spring-time places,
places they usually don't go to until April. Everything
is going off early and I hope we don't get any of those
Yukon express fronts come through."
Capt. Tom Chaya on the charter boat Dolphin
Dreams out of Captain's Marina in Holmes Beach said
he caught kings to 10 pounds and mackerel. He's also
getting snook and their numbers are picking up every
day as more white bait shows. Trout also are active.
Capt. Rick Gross on the Fishy Business II out of
Captain's Marina has been catching a lot of mackerel.
He went tarpon fishing March 9 near the Sunshine
Skyway Bridge and caught two and had another one
on. The two fish he landed weighed 85 to 90 pounds
each. Another boat fishing the same pod landed two,
Gross said.
Capt. Matt Denham on the Rip Tide, also out of
Captain's Marina, said grouper fishing has been top
shell. And watch out the big kings are off Sarasota.
"We're still catching both red and gag grouper over
30 inches. We caught an 18-pound red the other day,"
Denham said. "We're getting them in 60 to 70 feet of
water. Mackerel over 20 inches are plentiful and king-
fish are around. They're smaller, but the bigs ones are
close behind them. The guides off Sarasota are catch-
ing big ones. There's some nice triggerfish and man-
grove snapper to be had, too."
Capt. Joe Webb on the Old Florida docked at the
Cortez Fishing Center said he's been going out 50
miles on his blue water charters.
"We caught blackfin tuna to 35 pounds, amberjack
to 25 and gag and red grouper to 15 pounds," Webb
said. "We've also been catching something called
almaco jacks. They live in deep water and are smaller
than amberjacks. We chum them up with whitebait and
when they come to the surface, they jump out of the
water when they hit the bait."

Book news, hurricane tales, disaster woes


What with the Antiquarian Book Sale in St. Peters-
burg, a huge reading festival in Ft. Myers, and Carl
Hiaasen signing books in Sarasota last weekend, I've
been thinking about books of late.
So let's talk about Hiaasen for a bit.
Hiaasen is the author of eight novels, two non-fic-
tion books and, as his "day job," writes two columns
a week for the Miami Herald. You may have seen the
movie made from his book "Strip Tease," which fea-
tured Demi Moore taking her clothes off.
Anyway, I got a chance to talk to Hiaasen briefly
last weekend. It was very brief, because he had a line
of people waiting for him to sign various editions at
Circle Books that stretched around the corner and down
the street on St. Armands.
His most recent book is called "Sick Puppy." I
think it's one of his best, what with sleazy lobbyists,
ecoterrorists, a slobbering Labrador retriever and some
terrific descriptions of Florida.
Here's a good example of what Hiaasen writes
about in his fictional novels which all too unfortu-
nately also happens in real life. The scene is a mostly
deserted barrier island slated for a huge housing devel-
opment. The few people on the island protest the
project. After some bribes are offered, the island's

Capt. Roy Salgado on the Grand Slam out of
Bradenton Beach Marina said kingfishing is the hot-
test he has seen in years.
"We've been railing on the kingfish. My last three
trips we caught 135 kingfish up to 39 pounds," Salgado
said. "They hit good on planers and spoons early in the
day and then later in the day we trolled white bait. I
haven't seen this many kings in a long time. We were
getting triple headers when we were trolling."
Capt. Steve Salgado on the Compleat Angler,
docked at Cortez Fishing Center on the south side of
the Cortez Bridge, said he's been catching snook, red-
fish, trout, cobia and pompano.
"We're catching plenty of kings. One of my people
caught a 40-pound kingfish on 12-pound test line. It
was a heckuva fight. If you can't be proud of that, you
can't be proud of anything. The guy who caught it is 5
foot 7 inches tall and the fish was too."

leader caves in.
"With a handful of local reporters present, 'the mayor'
announced he was terminating the petition drive because
the developer had 'caved in to virtually all our demands.'
Wielding a sheath of legal-sized papers, he revealed the
developer had promised in writing to preserve the natu-
ral character of the barrier island, and had agreed to pro-
vide on-site biologists, botanists and hydrologists to super-
vise all phases of construction.
"In addition, the developer had endorsed an ambi-
tious mitigation program that required replanting three
acres of new trees for each acre sacrificed to develop-
ment. What 'the mayor' didn't tell the press was that
the developer legally was not compelled to revegetate
the island itself, and that the new trees could be put
anywhere else in Florida including a faraway county
where the developer happened to own 900 acres of
fresh-cut timberland that needed replanting."
Although the mitigation scenario Hiaasen de-
scribes sounds pretty far-fetched, the Sarasota County
Commission has just changed its comprehensive plan
to allow developers to do just what he's described.
According to ManaSota-88's Gloria Rains, developers
can now blithely destroy a wetland if it is "not 'fea-
sible' or 'reasonable' to preserve or mitigate on site,"
she says, adding that the re-built wetland can be created
just about anywhere in the state.
Talk about fact following fiction ...

Will this be the year of the 'big one?'
Now is the time when long-range weather forecast-
ers start looking at chicken entrails, or peering into
crystal balls, or doing whatever voodoo they do, to
predict the number and size of hurricanes for the sea-
son which begins June 1. It isn't looking good.

professor who has been uncannily accurate in most of

his prognostications, says we'll get 11 named storms,
seven of them hurricanes and three of those intense
hurricanes.
An FSU climatologist echoes Gray's forecast.
James Elsner wasn't as specific as Gray as to number
of storms, but agrees that there will be much greater
hurricane activity in the Atlantic, with more intense
storms spawned in the next two decades.
And a Louisiana State University geography pro-
fessor has an even more grim report. Kam-Bui Liu says
his sediment studies along the entire eastern seaboard
have indicated that we're in for a wild ride storm-wise
for the next millennium.
His research is fascinating, if you like that sort of
stuff. It seems he studied storm overwash patterns for
the past few thousand years from Maine to Louisiana.
The past 1,000 years have indicated not much
overwash caused by hurricanes; going back further in
time was much more active, he says.
"Our records of hurricanes only go back about 150
years," Liu says. "We need to look back longer to put
the present climate into perspective."
Makes sense to me, but I sure hope all those guys
are wrong about the upcoming hurricane season.

Sandscript factoid
When author Tim Dorsey was on the Island a while
back, he said he was startled to find that readers of his
book "Florida Frenzy" were fascinated with the histori-
cal elements of his novel those little history factoids
about the Sunshine State that he's been compiling for
years.
"I put them in the book mostly as a self-indul-
gence," Dorsey said. "I found that readers liked them
as much as I did."
I've gotta agree. Since I started this column, most
people told me they go straight to the "Sandscript
factoid" before reading the rest of the column if they
even read the rest of the column.
So, for those of you who enjoy factoids, I'll focus
on some Florida trivia for a bit.
About 18,000 years ago during the Glacial Period,
Florida was twice as large as it is today, and sea level
was about 300 feet lower. The first people arrived in
Florida about 12,000 years ago and found the weather
colder and drier, and big game like mastodons, mam-
moths and saber-toothed tigers roamed the plains.
