Bridge Street Pier & Cafe retains operation


By Paul Roat
Georgia Meier and Dr. Fred Bartizal received the
approval by city commissioners Monday to continue
operation of the Bridge Street Pier & Cafe for three
more years.
The pair have operated the popular restaurant on
the Bradenton Beach City Pier since 1994.
Although Meier and Bartizal offered the least
amount of revenue to the city 12 percent of gross
receipts commissioners indicated they wanted the
status quo maintained.
Five firms submitted proposals to operate the pier.


The bidder offering the city the greatest amount of
revenue was DiGiovanni's Professional Caterers and
Food Service of Sarasota. Frank DiGiovanni, president
of the company, proposed a sliding payment scale to
the city. If revenue was between $1 and $999,000, the
city would get 15 percent of gross receipts. If revenue
was between $1 million and $1,149,000, the city would
receive 20 percent. If receipts were $1,150,000 or
more, the city would receive 25 percent of the revenue.
DiGiovanni operates "take home" restaurant op-
erations in Arizona, Orlando, Winter Haven, Sarasota
and Ft. Myers.


Bradenton Beach Food Handlers includes Michael
Rappaport, John Joseph and Susan Royals. Rappaport,
owner of Big Olaf Ice Creamery in Bradenton Beach,
would handle overall operation of the pier. Joseph
would manage restaurant operations at the pier and has
been food and beverage manager at the Moose Lodge
in the city. Royals would operate the fishing pier.
Bradenton Beach Food Handlers proposed paying
the city $5,000 per month or 15 percent of gross re-
ceipts, whichever is greater. The group would also pay

Falls spur Anna Maria lawsuits


By Susan K. Kesselring
Islander Reporter
An over-abundant accumulation of sand and an
unsecured plank on the city pier say the plaintiffs -
are the cause of two accidents that have sparked sepa-
rate lawsuits against the City of Anna Maria.
In December 1996, Alfred Lloyd Haines tripped
and fell at the entrance to the Anna Mair City Pier.
Nearly a year later, Patricia Sunquist, riding her bike
in the vicinity of the pier, fell off her bike and was in-
jured.
Mayor Gary Deffenbaugh was served with a sum-
mons May 19 by Sunquist's attorney, W. Scott
Hamilton of Whitaker & Hamilton P.A. According to
the lawsuit, Sunquist was riding her bike on Pine Av-
enue and Bay Boulevard Nov. 27, 1997, when the ac-
cident occurred. It states that she "encountered an area
of the sidewalk that was covered with a large amount
of sand, causing her to fall off her bicycle."
She and her husband, Harlan, are suing for an
amount exceeding $15,000 each for injuries she sus-
tained in the fall, and he for the "loss of services, so-
ciety, consortium and companionship of his wife."
The complaint alleges the city "was under a duty
to maintain this area in a reasonably safe condition."
Deffenbaugh said the accident may not have oc-
2 -., ;,y : ,.,. :_-- : p . ..; ..


curred on city property. The location named in the law-
suit is vague. He also said he doesn't believe a police
report was filed at the time of the accident. The Florida
League of Cities will be representing the city in the
Sunquist lawsuit.
The Haines lawsuit, filed May 26, 1999, by the
Tampa law firm Paul & Singer was also for damages
exceeding $15,000.
The League denied the Haines claim Nov. 5, 1997,
after completing an investigation, saying no negligence
was found on behalf of the City of Anna Maria.
Haines is now deceased. His wife Mary, also
named in the lawsuit, is also suing, the City of Anna
Maria and Anna Maria Oyster Bar Inc. for injuries her
husband sustained from the fall.
Defense attorney Michael D. Siegel of Delcamp &
Siegel in St. Petersburg represents the city and the
Anna Maria Oyster Bar, the former pier tenant. Siegel
said the case is in the discovery phase of the lawsuit.
Neither mediation nor a trial date has been set, he said.
Initially, the tenant's insurance carrier refused to
indemnify the city, but later agreed to do so, being
bound by the terms of the lease. The city is named as
a co-defendant in the lawsuit. If any claims are paid,

the city 15 percent of revenue generated from special
events. They proposed to "promote backwater fishing
guides" and would pay the city 15 percent of the rev-
enue generated from that enterprise, as well as adding
a gift shop, ice cream sales and a full-time "Pier Fish-
ing Guide."
They would also pay the city a one-time $10,000
franchise fee. A check for that amount was included in
their bid. They also said they would provide a great
deal of capital improvements to the pier.
The Wallace and Bryan bid is from Dave Bryan,
Paula Bryan, Phil Wallace and Joyce Wallace. All
worked at the pier for varying times in various capaci-
ties, with Dave Bryan having served as kitchen man-
ager for three years.
Wallace and Bryan proposed paying the city
$1,000 per month or 15 percent gross receipts, which-
ever was greater. They also proposed expanding the
bait and tackle operation at the pier.
Raul Mendonca has owned and operated
Rebecca's Bistro in Bradenton Beach for three years.
His bid was for $1,000 per month or 14 percent of gross
receipts, whichever was greater. He also would pay the
one-time $2,000 franchise fee.
Meier told city commissioners and a standing-
room-only crowd Monday that total revenue in 1995
was $118,619. In 1999 that amount was $1,025,513.
Revenue to the city went from $8,348 to $128,216
during the same period of time.
Commissioners heard comments from each of the
bidders, then ranked the five proposals. In order of their
choices, the selections were:

According to the complaint filed in the Twelth

an unsecured plank at the entrance to the pier.
In addition to the numerous bruises, scratches and

The complaint alleges the city had a contractual

Islander Reporter
The Perico Eight have another friend on their side.
Manatee County commissioners voted 6-0'Tues-
day to be party to a challenge to the City of Bradenton's
comprehensive land-use plan.
Eight county residents filed the challenge last month
with the Florida Department of Community Affairs.
The three Anna Maria Island cities already have
joined the challenge that calls into question amendments
to the city's comprehensive plan which allows Arvida Co.
to build an 898-unit development on north Perico Island.
Commissioners spent almost two hours Tuesday
trying to decide whether to sue the city, file a verified
complaint against the city or become an intervenor, the
lesser of the three evils.
After County Attorney Tedd Williams told com-
missioners the cost of a suit would be "reasonably sub-
stantial" and would not accomplish much in terms of
trying to prevent Arvida from building what they want
on Perico, commissioners threw out that idea.
When Commissioner Joe McClash made a motion to
file a verified complaint, commissioners voted 3-3 and the
motion failed. Commissioner George Harris was absent.
After leaving the room without making a decision,
commissioners returned and at the urging of McClash
decided to become intervenors. Commission Chairman
Stan Stephens made the motion, which passed unani-
mously.
At a May 30 meeting, McClash wanted the county
to sue the city. However, Stephens said at that time that
suing would accomplish nothing:
"We'd get a victory shortlived," Stephens said,
"but in the long run the city would get their comprehen-
sive plan approved."
Williams told commissioners there wasn't much in
the'way of "hard numbers" that would justify pursuing
a lawsuit with regard to compatibility of the project.
Arvida already has expert witnesses who have proven


what the company wants to do on Perico is viable.
To sue the city would mean the county would have to
hire its own expert witnesses and attorneys and then try to
prove in court the project is incompatible.
Eight residents, including residents from Anna
Maria Island, filed the appeal in hopes the DCA will
deny amendments to the city's comprehensive plan.
Those residents claim the amendments do not com-
ply with the rest of the plan because the amendments
don't properly address things such as environmental
concerns, traffic and hurricane evacuation.
If the citizens' DCA complaint is upheld, the city
would have to amend its plan and start the approval
process for the project all over again.
Williams told commissioners at the May 30 meet-
ing that the eight residents have an "uphill battle"
ahead.
"The chances of success are less than even," Wil-
liams told the commission.
Bradenton City Council members approved the
project 3-2 in a vote May 10 following a 10-hour meet-
ing in which the county's power brokers backed the
project, while environmental groups and individuals ob-
jected.
The county commission jumped on board to complain
about the project because the city annexed the land away
from the county over, its objections, then approved the
project contrary to the county's comprehensive plan.
The county's planning staff said they would like to
see Arvida put up one-, two-, and three-story buildings
to make the development compatible with the sur-
rounding developments on the south side of the island
and those to the east of the proposed Arvida project.
As proposed, the city will allow Arvida to build con-
dominiums from four to 10 stories high on an island with
one of the most pristine views on Florida's west coast.
Williams told commissioners Tuesday that trying
to prove incompatibility would be tough.
"Everyone agrees that putting up industrial next to

"When you're talking about one kind of development

The city said that by building upward there would

concerned about the development dumping traffic on State

Proposed Bradenton Beach restaurant under discussion


By Paul Roat
Bradenton Beach planners and city commissioners
will meet this week to determine the fate of a proposed
153-seat restaurant on the west side of Gulf Drive at the
site of the former Trader Jack's Restaurant.
To be called The Gazebo, the elevated eatery is
proposed for 800 Gulf Drive N., just south of the cur-
rent Gulf Drive Cafe.
Gazebo owners are Wendy and George Kokolis,
who have owned the property since 1987. They are
planning to move to the Island from their current home
in Williamsburg, Va.
Emily Anne Smith, with the design firm Eatman &
Smith, said the elevated restaurant will be located on
the west side of Gulf Drive, with parking underneath.
The land across the street on the east side of Gulf Drive
also owned by Kokolis will become landscaped park-
ing. Proposed are 39 parking spaces on the west side of
Gulf Drive and 31 spaces on the east side.
Above the parking at the restaurant, the first floor
will total almost 3,000 square feet, including porches
overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Another third level,
this one almost 1,000 square feet, will encompass the
bar.
"There will be the most magnificent view on the
Island from the bar," Smith said.
Smith said The Gazebo will be open for breakfast,
lunch and dinner and feature a broad range of dining
fare.

Brent Whitehead is the contractor.
In a planning and zoning commission meeting May
24, board members reviewed plans for the building and
parking lot, but tabled action to June 8 at 6:30 p.m.
Three matters are under consideration concerning the
restaurant: a special exception request for off-site park-
ing, a special exception for open-air dining, and the
major development of the site. Public comment is al-
lowed on all issues.
After the planning board meeting June 8, city com-
missioners will review the project at a special meeting
June 14 beginning at 7 p.m.
A controversial element surrounding the restaurant
is an item unrelated to the restaurant's plans a cross-
walk with a pedestrian-triggered signal light that would
stop traffic to allow people to cross Gulf Drive at Ninth
Street North.
The signal was determined needed due to the vol-
ume of pedestrians crossing Gulf Drive from the Gulf
Drive Cafe's off-site parking lot. Some type of cross-
walk has been requested for years at that location, but
the pedestrian-triggered light caught many city officials
by surprise.
Mayor Gail Cole in particular has questioned the
traffic flow on Gulf Drive --already slowed by
beachgoer traffic after what amounts to another traf-


Moore's Stonecrab Restaurant, a pioneer
business on Longboat Key, has purchased the

The fish company is a longtime wholesaler
of fresh Florida seafood, Moore said, in busi-
ness at Everglades City for 33 years. That firm
emphasizes stone crabs, as does Moore's res-
taurant, he noted.
He said he and brother Paul Moore and part-
ner Robert Hicks will oversee daily operations of

fic light is installed, especially so close to the Gulf
Drive-Cortez Road intersection.
The Gazebo's anticipated volume of pedestrian
traffic crossing Gulf Drive from its proposed off-site
parking lot across the street, which is yet to be ap-
proved, will only exacerbate problems there.
The $94,625 project is included in the proposed
five-year plan of the Sarasota-Manatee Metropolitan
Planning Organization and, if approved by that board
later this month, will be installed in fiscal year 2000-
01.
Holmes Beach Mayor Carol Whitmore, who also
serves as chair of the Island Transportation Planning
Organization, has requested the signalized pedestrian
crosswalk be removed from the five-year work plan.
"I am asking the City of Bradenton Beach to recon-
sider this light and remove it from the plan," she wrote
in a letter to all Island officials. "The only logical so-
lution to assist pedestrians back and forth across the
street is to have the state put a pedestrian crossing at
that site. Holmes Beach has installed new pedestrian
crosswalks approved by DOT that are very easy to see
due to the reflective material being used now."
However, DOT spokesman Gene O'Dell said only
signal-lighted crosswalks are approved by the DOT on
state roads like Gulf Drive in Bradenton Beach.


both the restaurant and Everglades Fish.
The move will enable Moore's to "expand our
online and overnight delivery of stone crabs." Plans
also include supplying seafood products to restau-
rants out of state as well as locally, Moore said.
The Moore brothers are the third generation in
the stone crab business here. Their father, Pete
Moore, and mother Mary founded the restaurant in
1967 at 800 Broadway in north Longboat's village.
Pete's father harvested stone crabs in this area from
the 1920s.

Billboards sailing toward Island


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Big waterborne advertising is on its way to Anna
Maria Island, due along the shores here in four to six
weeks. Nobody could stop it if they wanted.
The creator of the floating billboard idea is Mark
Maksimowicz of St. Petersburg, who tried the notion
out along the south approach to the Sunshine Skyway
Bridge a few weeks ago.
The response was so heartening that he laid plans to
expand his fleet from one boat to five, soon to be 10, he
said. He plans to move them along heavily traveled
shoreside areas such as Bradenton, Longboat Key and
especially Anna Maria, where he spent vacations as a boy.
S Only the city of Sarasota has laws on the books to
prohibit such advertising. Otherwise, neither federal
nor state nor county nor municipal governments have
regulations covering floating ads, according to
spokespeople.
The U.S. Coast Guard and Florida Marine Patrol
would take action only if the boats impeded navigation
or safety, they said.
Manatee County Building Official Gene Daven-
port noted that no permitting is involved, the land de-
velopment code doesn't get into water "if he stays out
of designated swimming and skiing areas."
Holmes Beach Police Lt. Dale Stephenson said city
jurisdiction ends at the foot of the Anna Maria Island
Bridge so it wouldn't be a city matter.
Maksimowicz said he had sought rulings from all lev-
els of government, and nobody claimed power to regulate.
"The Marine Patrol headquarters in Tallahassee said no-
body can stop anyone from going from point A to point
B on the water as long as safety is not violated."
His billboards are full-color blowups of computer-


generated art, he said, 20 by 10 feet, on 33-foot fiber-
glass pontoon boats with heavy keels. He added that the
boats will be in constant motion at 4 knots off bridges
and causeways where vehicular traffic is concentrated.
There will be no risqu6 advertising, he promised,
but normal billboard ads such as web sites and beer. He
has some strong accounts and even more encouraging
negotiations under way, he said.
The price for his waterborne ads are $50 an hour,
which he noted is considerably less than TV or air-
plane-dragged signage or roadside billboards that av-
erage $7,000 a month.
He is a former St. Petersburg police officer injured
in a rap concert disturbance 10 years ago. He spent the
past five years as operations manager of the Florida In-
ternational Museum and "I decided to do something I
wanted to do." He and his wife formed Sea Signs Inc.,
adapted a boat, got a toll-free'number (877-787-8932)
and opened for business.
His seagoing ads are stirring a storm among boat-
ers and waterfront owners and politicians, along with
admiration among others for his entrepreneurship.
The Sarasota County Commission has ordered its
legal department to find a way to outlaw the advertis-
ing along causeways and coastal roads.
Sarasota city zoning laws include a "Marine Park
District" designation for all of Sarasota Bay south of
the Ringling Museum and north of Siesta Key, and all
signage there is prohibited except navigation aids, tres-
pass warnings, caution signs of "those required by the
state of Florida to be affixed to docks."
Maksimowicz is guessing that if the business
proves as successful as he anticipates, the legislature
will set up regulations and taxes: "Don't think
they'll pass up a chance to tax."

Opinion


We're serious
Perhaps you're one of the 1,200 or so out-of-town
subscribers who faithfully look to your mailbox for The
Islander every week.
If so, you may not know how serious the drought
in Florida has become. There are wildfires burning
thousands of acres of brush, threatening homes and
lives and causing horrendous accidents on the high-
ways smothered by smoke.
That's bad enough. Wells have dried up and col-
lapsed. Lawns are crunchy. "Flowering plant" is a eu-
phemism for plastics from Frank's crafts store.
But it's worse than that. The lack of water for such
deliberate necessities as lawn watering has pitted
neighbor against neighbor. Friends across the street,
who probably wouldn't report a rowdy argument if
they heard one, are calling code enforcement to report
devious acts of late-night irrigation.
It's a crying shame that water abuse has brought
neighbors to such boundaries of behavior.
But there's more. There are plenty of folks, including
Manatee County Commissioner Joe McClash, reaching
for straws in an effort to halt development on Perico Is-
land. Water is one of the straws in their half-filled cups.
Thankfully, it's brought McClash to the realization
that the growth applauded in east Manatee County by
his fellow board members and local chambers of com-
merce is choking us Islanders nearly to death.
We don't say that lightly. But Islanders who fear
for their prospects in a health emergency often move
to town, to be closer to needed health services.
Their fear is based in the gridlock that faces Island-
ers on nearly every holiday, most weekends, and through-
out our traditional expanding tourist season.
Let's face it. Who really wants to live by Interstate
75 but the most avid commuter? People come to
Florida, and Manatee County, for the beaches. Every
home built out east is a potential carload of beachgoers.
When will the county face up to the suffocation
they wreak on us? When will it meet the need for ser-
vices that the growing population of Manatee County
demands from the Island infrastructure?
Soon, maybe. At least now finally we have
an ear.
Just think short. If there's not enough water for
your lawn, what's the prospect for Arvida's promised
lush landscaping surrounding its 898 condominiums on
Perico Island? What will they do at Lakewood Ranch
to keep the Bermuda grass plush? What will they per-
mit next in the watershed?
Beat the drum loudly. Water is very scarce

Opinion


Perico project needs own access
The astounding thing about the current Perico Island
controversy is that no one has vet addressed the traffic
problems resulting from the addition of 898 housing units.
In terms of vehicular traffic, the building of this project
will add between 1,000 and 1,500 cars to the already
heavily traveled, two-laned Manatee Avenue across
Perico Island.
Currently this two-lane artery is the only link to the
mainland for residents of Perico Island, Flamingo Cay and
most of Anna Maria Island. On weekends and holidays,
winter and summer, traffic frequently backs up on the
mainland past 75th Street and has backed up to the
Holmes Beach Shopping Center (Marina Drive) creating
a gridlock effect during periods of frequent bridge open-
ings.
An accident anywhere on Perico Island, the Palma
Sola Causeway, or damage to any one of the three cause-
way bridges during an emergency evacuation, would force
evacuees to drive back to Anna Maria Island to try and use
the Cortez Bridge. Think of the mass confusion and tie
ups.
Even four-laning Manatee Avenue might not suffice
during a storm evacuation in case of blockages caused by
accidents, damage to one of the three bridges, or a wash-
out on Palma Sola Causeway.
It seems to me the obvious solution is for the City of
Bradenton to require Arvida to provide a separate access
to the mainland for its development, which could also be
available in the event Manatee Avenue is blocked or tied
up. It could be accomplished by building a trestle over the
mangrove-fringed Perico Bayou and a road connecting to
the Palma Sola Loop Road at either Ninth or 17th avenues
north west.
This is not so novel. Former Florida Sen. Wilbur
Boyd, when proposing a high-rise, golf course develop-
ment on the east side of Perico Bayou in the 1980s, offered
to re-create the old Palma Sola-Perico Island Causeway
and bridge over Perico Bayou to provide Perico residents
with a second outlet to the mainland. This road would


have tied into Ninth Avenue North.West at 99th Street.
Alas, due to various reasons Boyd dropped the develop-
ment and the second bridge off Perico was never built.
Admittedly this would be a very expensive stipulation
for Arvida, and might make its project too prohibitive to
build. However, this major improvement could be a joint
effort on the part of the City of Bradenton, Manatee
County and Arvida, since a second access to the mainland
would benefit more than the future residents of Arvida's
development.
If this development was in Manatee County, the road
impact fees collected from each of the 898 units could
have been applied to the cost of building this secondary
access to the mainland. However, the property owners
annexed the land into the City of Bradenton to avoid those
impact fees, and to increase the housing density from 352
units to the proposed 898. Prior to the annexation, the 352-
acre tract was zoned by the county for one unit per acre,
or 352 maximum units.
All of which augurs for more uniform zoning
throughout the urbanized area of the county and city,
which can only be accomplished by some form of consoli-
dated government.
Bottomline, it should be stipulated that a second ac-
cess to the mainland be required before 898 more dwell-
ing units are built on Perico Island.
Kent Chetlain, Bradenton
(former Manatee County commissioner)
Raise their consciousness
Perhaps those elected officials and local power bro-
kers promoting the Arvida project at Perico could do with
some consciousness-raising sessions, since only the "com-
merce" part of their collective brain seems to be working.
How else to explain placing tax revenue and osten-
tation over such issues as human safety and proper land
use in a sensitive environment (not to mention quality
of life and aesthetics)?
And as for "listening to the people," with all due
respect they could use a course in that, too.

Snooks Adams Kid's Day coming up June 17


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
A special day for the Island's youngsters, started
45 years ago by a compassionate cop, rolls around
again Saturday, June 17.
The originator of a day at the beach for kids at the
end of each school year, Snooks Adams, will be in at-
tendance once again. He was a deputy sheriff and Anna
Maria Island's first law enforcement officer and be-
came the first chief of police when Holmes Beach or-
ganized its department.
He started the gathering with a Jeep-load of young-
sters whom he drove to Coquina Beach and fed hot
dogs and soda and oversaw in several hours of kids'
games. He continued his instantly established tradition
for 25 years, bringing happy days to kids who them-
selves now send their own children or grandchildren


The Island has been home to Cathleen Winsor
Smith for nearly 30 years. She's lived in Holmes Beach
since 1972, having moved to the city with husband Earl
Spaulding Smith, since deceased. Together they had
four children, nine grandchildren, 15 great grandchil-
dren and one great-great grandchild.
In honor of her 95th birthday, Smith's family held
a luncheon at a local restaurant that was attended by her
children, their mates and nine grandchildren who came
from as far away as California, Minnesota, Missouri,
Indiana, Connecticut and New York.
Smith was born May 28, 1905, in Providence, R...,
and is a descendant of Roger Williams, founder of
Rhode Island. The farm house she grew up in, known
as "The Red House," was built in 1760 and sold in
1958 to Hanley Brewery.
It was used for the horses that hauled keg beer to
distributors in Providence and surrounding towns.
Smith and her brother, Andrew used to deliver sweet
corn grown by their father to a nearby food market by
horse and wagon.
Smith now drives a 1976 Ford Thunderbird which


- to the celebration.
In 1980 he handed it all over to the Anna Maria
Island Privateers, which by then was a 10-year-old non-
profit organization a group of men who wanted to
help Island youngsters and have fun doing so. The
event had begun to attract hundreds of youths and
still does.
This year's event will continue the tradition at
Bayfront Park in Anna Maria on June 17. The Priva-
teers have scheduled a day of energetic activities start-
ing at 10 a.m., games to begin at 10:30, the "best
dressed pirate" contest at 11. A treasure hunt and
games will mean prizes for just about all kids.
All through the program until it ends at 2 p.m.,
youngsters will get all the hot dogs and pizza and so-
das they can stomach free.
Grownups are almost as welcome as the kids, in


she and her husband bought for their 50th anniversary.
She is an active member of Roser Memorial Commu-
nity Church and works two days a week in its thrift
shop.


fact the Privateers encourage parents to come and stay.
They can have all they can eat, too, but not for free -
a donation is encouraged, said Bruce Witton, secretary
of the Privateers organization.
Aside from all the organizing and work involved,
Snooks Adams Kid's Day is sponsored in good part by
local businesses that donate money and prizes and gifts,
said Witton. Several of Adams' friends also chip in
with substantial donations.
The Privateers raise money for their program of
donations through the giant Fourth of July picnic,
thieves' markets and a golf tournament. The funds go
to the Anna Maria Island Community Center, the Pri-
vateers' scholarship program, the Whitey Horton
scholarship award and other youth boosts, not least of
which is Snooks Adams Kid's Day.
Further information may be obtained at 747-4642.


Frolicking manatees
attract audience
Thankfully, it was a false report, but the call re-
garding 12 stranded manatees near the Gulf Drive
Cafe, 900 block of Gulf Drive in Holmes Beach, was
just that.
They weren't stranded. They were, uh, frolicking.
Actually, having group sex, or better said perhaps, in
a mammal sort of way, they were making love.
Bradenton Beach police were on the scene to
warn interested spectators and clear the surround-
ing waters of swimmers and watercraft before the
manatees moved back out into the Gulf of Mexico.

Assisted living open house
Haven Home Inc. is having an open house at its
new assisted-living residence located at 2202 Avenue
B, Bradenton Beach.
The open house is scheduled Monday, June 12, and
Friday, June 16. Open house hours are 10:30 a.m. to
4:30 p.m. and all are welcome to take a look.
For information, call Peggy Barron at 778-4912.

Memoirs of day at Kennedy Space Center


By Susan K. Kesselring
Islander Reporter
The last time I remember being on a bus blazing
down a highway with a bunch of youngsters was when
my fourth-grade class took a field trip to the Bozo
Show in Chicago.
On the return trip to school, I sat next to a boy who
sank all six balls after being chosen for the grand prize
game. I don't remember his name, but I remember
sharing his candy and trying to finagle a few of his
prizes.
The memory was sparked by a field trip June 2
with 47 Anna Maria Elementary School fifth graders to
Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canveral, Fla.
Principal Tim Kolbe approved my request and
teachers Anne Kinnan and Joyce Ellis were kind
enough to let me accompany them and 10 parents/chap-
erones.
I too was made a chaperone and hung out with 11-
year-old Lauren Fletcher the rest of the day. I quickly


activated my peripheral vision and the eyes in the back
of my head.
En route to the space center at 7:45 a.m., some chil-
dren were snuggled under blankets clutching their favor-
ite stuffed animals and catching a few more Zs, while oth-
ers settled in with books, games and music via headsets.
Some watched movies that Ellis brought along.
We embraced nature to and from our destination. As
we passed through Kissimmee, the rising smoke and ac-
rid smell of burning brush fire invaded our senses and we
were saddened by the sight of dead baby deer that had
evidently tried to escape their plight by jumping the fence
alongside the highway only to be run over. We sighted
large alligators in the water lining the highway, road signs
that warned of snake-infested swamps, baby chickens
without their feathers pecking for nourishment, and an
800-pound, 30-year-old American eagle's nest in the vi-
cinity of the space center.
To pass the time, we shared stories of our daily
routines and of our families.


Bus driver Olie Olson had an apropos story to
share with us. He was at the space center June 28, 1986,
when the Challenger Spaceship exploded and seven
astronauts lost their lives.
Most people can remember where they were or what
they were doing that fateful day. Nearly 20 years before,
on Jan. 27, 1967, three astronauts also died during a drill
when a fire broke out in the spaceship's cabin.
Olson said he remembers thinking that what he was
witnessing wasn't normal and it wasn't the separation
of the solid rocket boosters he expected to see. People
behind him began crying, he said, and soon everyone
was made to leave the vicinity.
As he was returning his passengers home, one man
came to him and asked for his money back. Olson said
he's still shocked by the man's insensitivity.
Kinnan said she and her students at that time saw
the explosion during recess on the school's playground.

THE ISLANDER M JUNE 7, 2000 M PAGE 9


CENTER, FROM PAGE 8
Having arrived at our destination, we made our
way to the main gate where mock life-sized astronauts
hung from the terminals. I was awestruck by the enor-
mity of the center and the brains behind it all. Being
there you can feel the power and progress of the place
where more than 40 years ago the United States first
sent a satellite into orbit.
We began our tour at the IMAX theater where we
watched "The Dream Is Alive." The film, devoted to
the memory of the seven astronauts who died in the
Challenger catastrophe, contained footage of three of
the astronauts.
The magnificent world came into focus as we
viewed the topography from the perspective of the as-
tronauts in space, where the splendor of sunrise and
sunset occurs 16 times a day. Seen as if from an eagle's
eye, we traversed the Mediterranean, Italy's famous
boot, the deserts of Asia, the vivid blue Gulf Stream
and the turquoise seas of the Caribbean.
We were then whisked away to a class to meet our
"Communicator," Mary Glenn, who took us through
the rocket garden a record of the technology of rock-
ets and then to a mock space shuttle.
We were told about the space suit that astronauts
wear outside the spaceship to protect them from the
harsh environment of space and 0 gravity. The 300-
pound space suit has a matching 24-karat gold visor.
Glenn demonstrated the durability of the tiles lin-
ing the outside of the shuttle by holding one in her hand
and igniting a torch. Made of silica, the tiles absorb the
intense heat upon re-entry into the earth's atmosphere.
We then visited mission control, where we witnessed
a space launch reenactment. Louvers line the outside win-
dows in the event something should go awry and as the
clock ticks down, systems are checked. Once the huge
firecracker takes off, you can feel the ground shake and
the windows rattle in their panes even though you're more
than three miles from the launch pad.
We toured Launch Pad 39 where the Atlantis ex-
pedition took o'ff a few weeks ago. Viewing it from an
air-conditioned bus, we were told by communicator
Mark Eliott that the water tower adjacent to it holds
300,000 gallons of water and its function is to prima-
rily absorb the tremendous sound waves emanating
from the immense explosion.
"Otherwise the shuttle could burst," Eliott said.
And I thought the water was there to put out a fire.
He also said the cameras placed every few feet in
a circular pattern around the launch pad are housed in

We saw the massive crawler that's used to trans-
port the assembled, reusable space shuttle, which con-
sists of a winged orbiter, two solid rocket boosters and
an external tank weighing a combined 11 million
pounds. It takes five hours for the crawler to go 3 1/2
miles to the launch pad and creeps along at 32 feet to
one gallon of diesel fuel.
The building where the space shuttle is erected is
called the Vertical Assembly Building. Eliott said the
Statute of Liberty could go in the front door and out the
back door of the 525-foot building. The NASA logo is
on the right side and the American flag on the left, its
stripes wide enough to serve as a landing strip.
Eliott tested our knowledge of history. John Glenn
and Neil Armstrong are household names, but who were
the first male and female shuttle commanders? he asked.
NASA's first female commander was Eileen
Collins and John Young was the first male commander.
The first female to ever walk in space was astronaut
Sally Ride.
We were later tested on what we learned with the
boys competing against the girls in a game of trivia. For
the record, the girls outwitted the boys.
We finished our exploration with a visit to the
Apollo/Saturn V Center, home to the "real McCoy,"
the massive Apollo 8 and other period space craft.
There you can touch a piece of moon rock that was
formed more than 3.7 billion years ago.
Lauren and the other students reminded me of how
much fun it is to be a kid. As the day drew to a close, I
soaked up memories of my own childhood.

Rome revisited at Anna Maria School


By Susan K. Kesselring
Islander Reporter
Venturing into Anne Kinnan's fifth-grade classroom
was like being transported by time machine to 753 B.C.
Disbelief was suspended as students performed a skit that
was a superb reenactment of Roman times.
Dressed in period garb as.citizens, statesmen, soldiers
and gladiators, Anna Maria Elementary School students
took turns relating the history of the ancient period, not-
ing Roman customs, technology and famous people.
Parents, faculty and students from the fourth and
fifth grade classes attended the play. Students in kin-
dergarten through third grade visited the classroom to
see the projects.
Han Souders began the script by saying "Friends,
Romans, countrymen lend me your ears."
He said the rise and fall of the Roman empire is a
fascinating tale to tell.
Heather Howard told the audience, "All roads lead
to Rome," a fitting idiom because at the height of its
civilization, Rome's territory spanned the entire area of
the Mediterranean coast, parts of Central Europe, North
Africa and the Middle East.
Angela Jackson and Cory Stewart told how Rome
got its name. Infant twins, Romulus and Remus, are
sent to die by the Tiber River, but instead a mother wolf
cares for them. As adults they fight each other to the
death and Romulus wins.
Heathe Fiecke was a loyal Roman soldier and Steven
Faasse a fearsome gladiator. Gladiators were entertainers
who fought in coliseums and were made to live or die by
the showing of thumbs up or thumbs down.

Katie O'Neill said Rome wasn't built in a day -
it took 1,000 years. Just look to a coin for the words "E
Pluribus Unum," which means one out of many. A
third of the words in the English language, such as re-
public and senator, are derived from Latin, the lan-
guage of the ancient Romans.
The students also learned that the index finger and
thumb are the digits used for the Roman numeral V.
Not a detail was spared in their depiction of Roman
times. Students learned Latin and wrote vocabulary
words on pictures of Roman columns which were hung
from the ceiling. They drew life-size representations of
famous Romans, made papier-mache busts, designed
an aqueduct, a village and coliseum. They also de-
signed a brick wall which they wrote on to illustrate
that graffiti was popular in Roman times.
Like today, there were good and bad people living

back then. Nero was a bad emperor who killed his
mother, wife and teachers, but Augustus brought
wealth and good fortune to Rome for nearly 200 years,
Delicacies of the period were laid out on a table.
Mark Spence tells the audience that fast food originated
in Rome. In addition to grapes, bread and cheese, fa-
vorite delicacies were seasoned door mice, fattened
snails, peacock brains and flamingo tongues.
The students ended by reciting in unison, "Veni,
vidi, vici," meaning, I came, I saw, I conquered -
words made famous by Julius Caesar.
Kinnan says students come back to visit years later
and say they still remember their lines from the Roman
skit. She said Dr. Phelps Tracy and Lynn Fusco were
valuable volunteers. He helped with the writing of the
script and design of the village and coliseum and she
helped with the head pieces and togas.

Fishing the Islands tourney next weekend


By Capt. David Futch
The best fishing tournament in Manatee County -
and arguably one of the best on the Gulf Coast starts
next week.
Island Discount Tackle's 2000 Fishing the Is-
lands Tournament kicks off Friday, June 16, with a
captains meeting at the Anna Maria Island Community
,Center, 407 Magnolia Ave., Anna Maria.
One member from each crew must attend and the
rules will be explained by Island Discount's Bill
Lowman and tournament official Bill O'Connor.
The meeting goes from 5 to 8 p.m. and there will
-be a cash bar.
The tournament gets under way the next day after
boats are recognized at the check-in points, including
the Mar Vista Pub on north Longboat Key and the Rod
& Reel Pier on north Anna Maria Island.
As many as 175 boats and teams are expected to
compete for $5,000 offered to each winner in the in-
shore and offshore divisions.
There also will be special awards for children un-
der 16 in the inshore and offshore divisions.
For more information, call Island Discount Tackle
at 778-7688.
Lowman said tarpon fishing over the weekend was
phenomenal. There were huge spring tides which
caused bait to be flushed out of Tampa Bay on the fall-
ing tide. Look for tarpon along the beaches and in the
Passes. To get 'em, look for a school moving down the
beach and swimming in a circle, or what is called
"daisy chaining." You'll want to get ahead of the
school and hopefully get in the right position to inter-
cept them as they swim by. Then cast your threadfin
herring or crab to the edge of the school and hang on.
Annie's Bait & Tackle reporting for Capt. Zach
Zacharias on the Dee-Jay II said Zach is catching
mangrove snapper, trout, redfish and sheepshead in the
bay. Off the beaches there are tarpon, permit, mackerel
and barracuda.
Capt. Sam Kimball on the Legend out of Annie's
said the red grouper are out there for the taking. Per-
mit take some time to find, but there are plenty and
they're big.
"I've been catching mostly permit to 27 pounds on
crabs," Kimball said. "Sometimes it takes an hour to
find them, but you'll see them flashing below the sur-
face when they turn on their side.
"There's also a lot of lane snapper and red grouper.
I caught 16 red grouper to 18 pounds in one trip.
There's bonita, yellowtail, mangrove snapper and a lot
of sharks.
"I had an 11-foot hammerhead swimming around
the boat for the longest time the other day. There's a lot
of bait out there so that means there's a lot of fish eat-
ing that bait."
Bob Kilb at the Rod & Reel Pier on the north tip
of Anna Maria Island said mackerel, blue runners, jack
crevalle and mangrove snapper are biting.
"We see a lot of tarpon swimming by," Kilb said,
"but standing on this pier, you'd have to have 1,000
yards of line to catch one."
Capt. Matt Bowers on The Outcast at Captain's
Marina in Holmes Beach said he took artist Jeff Tarr
and his brothers out fishing Saturday and caught grou-
per, snapper and dolphin. Bowers said they were out 20
miles and if they'd gone another 10 miles further they
could have caught all the dolphin they wanted.
,- Capt. Mike Greig of Capt. Mike's Charters in
Holmes Beach said tarpon fishing is as good as he's
ever seen it.

Cock-a-doodle-doo fish
Capt. David Bovard, right, of Holmes Beach, and
best friend Capt. John Olson have a grip on this 40-
pound rooster fish Bovard caught off Zancudo Beach
(Playa Zancudo) in the Pacific Ocean. Playa
Zancudo is near Golfito, Costa Rica. Bovard was
using 15-pound-test line and a Zara Spook lure.

"We caught grouper and tarpon on Sunday, so we
got something to eat and something to play with,"
Greig said. "I'm catching at least two or three tarpon
every day and that doesn't include the ones we hook.
It's been wild."

Road said snook fishing season ended with a bang with
snook to 30 inches being caught on a regular basis.
"Rattlesnake Key and Emerson Point were covered
with snook on the last day of the season," which closed
June 1. There are some decent trout around to 22 inches
and there are some mackerel and bluefish in the bay
and a lot of tarpon around the Skyway Bridge. Redfish
have been tough, but they're in Joe Bay."
Lee Goss at Perico Harbor Bait & Tackle said
the snook are biting, you just can't keep them. Snook
season closed June 1 and you'll have to wait until Sept.
1 to keep one. Goss has those perfect-sized crabs for
permit and they're right to my liking for tarpon fishing.
Capt. Steve Salgado on the Compleat Angler
said tarpon and black tip sharks are hot.
"We got a 120-pound black tip shark, 6 1/2 feet
long," Salgado said. "There are a lot of sharks in
Tampa Bay right now. We used a live threadfin herring
on 20-pound test fought for an hour and 30 minutes.
There's a lot of everything around, but tarpon are the
thing. We're catching them every day."
Capt. Curt Morrison and Capt. Ryan Hackney
on the Neva-Miss said the last time out they got red
grouper to 14 pounds and caught 15 of them. They got
gag grouper to 12, but said there are more reds than
gags out there right now. They also got a lot of man-
grove snapper.
"We're seeing a rogue kingfish every now and
then," Morrison said. "I love it. It's like a treat."
On Saturday, Morrison said he and Hackney
caught gag grouper to 12 pounds, reds to 15, lane snap-
per and dolphin to six pounds.
"I saw dolphin three days in a row. Ryan said he
was out 15 miles and saw two sailfish in the four-foot
range. They were slashing through bait," Morrison
said. "We went Saturday with another boat and caught
30 grouper and also caught a 31-inch Spanish mack-
erel. I thought he was a kingfish at first. We caught
them in 55 to 80 feet of water."
Capt. Matt Denham on the Rip Tide out of
Captain's Marina said his folks caught 10 dolphin,
lane, yellowtail and mangrove snapper, red grouper to
15 pounds and gag grouper to 10 pounds.

THE ISLANDER 0 JUNE 7, 2000 U PAGE 19

This story really stinks; amazing detail from traffic planners


"City bans all scents, raises big-time stink" is the
headline of the week. Officials in Halifax, Nova Scotia,
have banned all "cosmetic fragrances" perfumes -
from municipal offices, libraries, hospitals, classrooms,
courts and buses.
The focus of the prohibition includes scented deodor-
ant, herbal shampoos, colognes and anything else that
produces an odor.
Seems that some people become violently ill when
they smell perfume. It's called Multiple Chemical Sensi-
tivity. However, mainstream physicians pooh-pooh the ill-
ness, calling it more psychological than physical.
Nonetheless, Halifax politicians have adopted the no-
smell admonition without a whole lot of debate or conflict.
And it's not just a paper law they're actually enforc-
ing it.
One 84-year-old woman was evicted from city hall
for wearing too much perfume. Another woman was or-
dered off a city bus because of her aroma. When a high
school student came to class with Dippity-Do hair gel and
Aqua Velva deodorant, his scent-sensitive teacher de-
manded he be charged with criminal assault for suppos-
edly jeopardizing her health.
Even the daily newspaper in the city has gotten into
the act, ordering its employees to refrain from even
"strong mouthwash" when they come to work.
There are some critics to the anti-scent movement.
"People have been wearing fragrances since biblical
times," one critic noted. "If someone wears too much, if
they become obnoxious to people around them, then a
friend should speak to them. Or a work supervisor. But
bringing government into what people dab on their face
or rub on their underarms is just too much like Big
Brother."
I agree with the Big Brother philosophy, but there
have been enough people who've dropped by the news-
paper office with fragrance sufficient to gag a skunk that
I can sympathize with Halifax officials.
And it sure would be fun to write articles about Island
cities entering into the "no-scent" arena. Maybe the per-
fume ban could take place during a budget cycle so I could
write a "No scent, not enough cents" headline.

Dry, dry, dry still
We're about nine inches short of the rainfall we
should have this year, and the drought has burned 114,000
acres of Florida land so far. After checking with somebody
who isn't nearly as mathematically challenged as I, that
works out to 178 square miles. For comparison, Manatee
County is about 893 square miles.
Doesn't seem that big now, does it?
Remember that we are under an emergency lawn
watering ban. Water usage is limited to Tuesday only for
addresses ending in even numbers; Sunday only for ad-
dresses ending in odd numbers. Watering may not take
place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is limited to quantities
of less than three-quarters of an inch on the landscaping.
Newly planted lawn and landscape areas may be
watered on any day of the week for a 60-day period that
begins when the plantings are installed. However, water-
ing is not permitted between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Hand watering plants (not landscaping) is still al-
lowed at any time, as is vehicle washing as long as the
hose has a nozzle that can shut off the water flow when
not needed. One of our neighbors set a good example by
washing his car on the lawn.
I would have thought that the Florida Yards & Neigh-
borhood Program advocating native plants and drought-
tolerant landscaping would be in great demand, but a
check with Jane Morse at the county extension service
office said things were slow.
"People don't seem to know about Florida Yards,"
she said. "They don't know there's a better way."
That "better way" calls for low-maintenance yards
that don't require as much water, fertilizer or pesticides.

Basically you group plants with similar needs, get rid of
the huge expanses of grass and replace it with groundcover
or mulch. And, you end up with a showplace yard that
doesn't require nearly as much work to keep up.
Call Jane at 722-4524 for more information.
Run away! Run away!
Florida's emergency managers have come up with a
plan to turn seven stretches of interstate highway into huge
one-way roads if a Category 4 or 5 hurricane comes
a'callin'. They stress that the one-way action will take
place "only in the event of a dire storm."
One of the interstates that's a part of the plan is I-4
from Tampa to Orlando. There's a pretty detailed plan to-
one-way the road that takes into effect virtually every as-
pect of mobilizing the highway for wrong-way traffic.
The level of detail is fascinating. They've gone so far
as to note that those little reflectors that line the lanes of
traffic only reflect in one direction and have realized
they'll have to replace all 15,000 of them so they're shiny
on both sides to allow car headlights to pick up the glim-
mer going or coming.
It will take 1,585 traffic barricades and 1,850 traffic
cones to direct motorists along that one stretch of highway.
A total of 160 state law enforcement officers will be
needed to aid drivers, and 90 Florida Department of Trans-
portation workers to set up the equipment. Oh, and it will
take five hours to "deploy" the highway for evacuees.
Who says those folks in Tallahassee aren't thinking?
Sandscript factoid
Some states not Florida, though have remote
radio controls in fire, police and paramedic vehicles that
turn red lights to green when activated. The idea is to get
emergency crews to a scene of an accident faster.
Seems that two Miami citizens decided the idea was
too good to ignore and started advertising a similar prod-
uct on the Internet. Their "go boxes" were priced between
$69 and $150. But when the potential "go users" sent in
their money, all they got were instructions to build a flash-
ing light to put on their dashboard, illegal in Florida.
The "go box" scheme got the two Miamians arrested
on mail and wire fraud.

Schweitzer, Pittman, Sato
at top of class
The old saying about nice guys finishing last didn't
hold water at the Anna Maria Island Little League
awards ceremony June 1.
This time the good guys took home the gold. In this
-.,ase, gold statues about as big as they were.
Kyle Schweitzer of the Haley's Motel champion-
ship team was the big winner on the night.
Schweitzer, 12, was voted Most Valuable Player
for the 2000 season in Little League's major division
after leading his team both on the mound and at the
plate.
Schweitzer also was crowned batting champion for
hitting .520 on the season.
Haley's beat a determined West Manatee Fire Dis-
trict team 3-2 in the championship game May 23, riding
Schweitzer's bat and arm. His performance in that
game cinched the MVP trophy for him.
He slugged a towering first-inning home run and
pitched a complete game to get the win to cap Haley's
crowning run and the title.
The other two big winners at the awards ceremony
were Nick Sato of WMFD and Sean Pittman of Bali
Hai Resort.
Sato, 10, won Rookie-of-the-Year honors by hit-
ting .312 and displayed a good glove in left field and
a strong arm that allowed him to throw out several run-
ners trying to stretch singles and doubles into doubles
and triples.
Pittman, 11, was named Sportsman of the Year for
his exemplary attitude. On a number of occasions
Pittman could be seen helping other players, offering
a good word to pick them up. Often the player was on
another team.

Pittman is expected to be one of the premier play-
ers on the Anna Maria All-Star team that begins play
later this month against other Manatee County teams.
Pittman tied for fourth in batting this season with
a .428 average and tied for sixth in RBIs with 13. He
also had a home run and six doubles.

WMFD/Bali Hai win Island AII-Star game
There were a lot of heroes on both sides May 31 at
the Anna Maria Island Little League All-Star game.
Most of them were the usual suspects. You know
the names: Pittman, Cramer, Bouziane, Carper,
Lowman, Bobo, Rosas, Whitley, DeBellevue,
Pritchard. The list goes on.
An All-Star team made up of players from West
Manatee Fire District and Bali Hai Resort beat the
Haley's Motel/Kiwanis squad 9-6 in a game that wasn't
decided until the eighth inning.
This year's game was extended from six to nine
innings so every player could receive a fair number of
at-bats and chances in the field.

with a .520 average and also
took home the league's Most-
al i Valuable-Player award. In the
center is Sean Pittman of Bali

S Sportsmanship Award, while
Rookie-of-the- Year honors

n a i. so at Manatee Fire District.

WMFD/Bali led 4-3 in the fourth inning when Matt
Bobo of Haley's clobbered a double to right center to
bring in a runner to tie the game.
WMFD players brought out their sticks the rest of
the way and helped put the game out of reach in the top
of the eighth.
WMFD/Bali scored four runs to make it 9-5 in the
eighth and Haley's/Kiwanis scored one more in the
bottom of the ninth, but it wasn't enough.
Hitting heroes for WMFD were Michael Cramer
with two doubles and a single, Eric Whitley with two
singles and Greg Lowman with a double to right cen-
ter that hit the fence in the air.
Bali Hai players who starred were Pittman with
two doubles and a single and Tim Bouziane who put on
an amazing show at the plate in one at-bat.
With Haley's Steve Faasse on the mound trying to
blow pitches by the scrappy player, Bouziane fouled
off 10 pitches before Faasse finally walked him.
