Friends come to grips with Islander Mills' death


By David Futch
Islander Reporter
There was a priority in Patrick Mills' life. He
wanted to learn to be a top surfer and spent a lot of time
at his favorite sport.
He accomplished his goal and could rip a wave as
good as anyone around. When he was riding his board,
he was narley.
Last week Hurricane Debby looked as if it would
bring in some big sets on the east coast. Mills and his
surfing buddies couldn't resist the temptation. They
bolted for the other side.
The Manatee High School student from
Bradenton Beach caught his last wave around noon.



Planners OK


Bridge Street


multiuse


project
By Paul Roat
It's two down, one to go for a new development
project planned for Bridge Street in Bradenton Beach.
Planning and Zoning Commission members rec-
ommended approval of 15 special exceptions for the
Bridge Street Village project on the north side of
Bridge Street. Members of the city's board of adjust-
ment earlier had approved a setback for the building.
City commissioners will have the final say on the
project during their afternoon meeting Sept. 23.
Bridge Street Village although the name may
change to Bridgewalk if it's approved is a motel-
restaurant-retail shop development on nine lots. The
site currently includes part of the closed Key West
Willys restaurant.
Emily Anne Smith. with the architectural firm of
Eatman & Smith, is the designer of the project. She said
owners of the project are Angela and Barbara


Raul Mendonca

Bistro on Gulf
Drive said,

wonderful, but
my suggestion
is to make a
change to get
more parking."

own the Silver Surf Mo-
tel in Bradenton Beach
and the Silver Sands
Apartments Motel on
Longboat Key.
Plans call for a 150-
seat restaurant on the
Key West Willys loca-
tion. The restaurant will
have parking on the
ground floor, a dining
room on the second floor
and a lounge on the third.
Outdoor dining will be a
feature of the restaurant.
Paralleling Bridge
Street will be a seven re-
tail shops and two offices
on the ground level. On

offices will be 30 motel units.


His dream of becoming a top surfer was dashed Aug.
22 when the Isuzu Rodeo he was in smashed head on
into a van near the DeSoto and Highlands county
line on State Road 70.
Mills, 17, and three other teens were killed in-
stantly in what Florida Highway Patrol troopers called
one the most grisly accidents they'd ever worked.
Cory Burkett, 18, of Bradenton was trying to pass
another vehicle and was doing 80 mph when his sport-
utility vehicle crashed into a van doing 60 mph, accord-
ing to troopers. Burkett, Adam Avalos, 17, and Nicho-
las Johnson, 16, all of Bradenton, were killed.
A passenger in the van, Marion Randall, 85, of Salt
Lake City, also died in the 3 p.m. accident near the


small central Florida town of Lake Placid. The driver
of the van, Faustine Bonhan, 53, and an 8-year-old boy
were in serious condition, while two other passengers
in the van were in fair condition.
The four friends were returning from their favor-
ite east coast surfing spot near Fort Pierce. The FHP
said alcohol was not a factor in the accident.
About 70 classmates showed the evening after
the accident for a memorial at White Avenue where
the kids often surfed and met. They planted a cross
with "Patrick" and "Adam" on it and strung leis over
it. Someone put Mills' favorite food at the base of the

Probably the most controversial aspect of Bridge
Street Village project is parking. Under city land use
codes anywhere but within the historic old town over-
lay district along Bridge Street, parking for the project
would have to total 122. The development has parking
for 90 vehicles.
Parking was the primary concern of the handful of
people who spoke on the project before the planning
and zoning commission meeting.
Joe Cuervo, with the Drift In Lounge on Bridge
Street, said "I'm all for your project, but the concern I
have is my 13 parking spaces and I don't want them
taken by people other than my patrons."
Raul Mendonca with Rebecca's-Bistro on Gulf
Drive concurred. "The project is wonderful, but my
suggestion is to make a change to get more parking."
Dick Griffin, who is on the board of directors at the
Moose Lodge across the street from the project, said he
believed the project needed to be able to accommodate
120 parking spaces on site.
Smith said she hoped to provide valet parking for
restaurant patrons if needed.


Iappenings
Re-entry tags available
in Bradenton Beach
If you plan to spend a few more minutes
voting Tuesday you can save a lot of time if we
have a hurricane at least in Bradenton Beach.
Bradenton Beach officials will be on hand
from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 5, to provide
re-entry tags for residents. Since residents will al-
ready have two forms of identification, the process
for getting a re-entry tag should be quick.
And with a re-entry tag, returning to the city
will be much, much easier and faster after any
evacuation.
You will also need to have your vehicle li-
cense tag number to get a re-entry tag.
For more information, call 778-1005.

Recycling gearing up



in Bradenton Beach


By Paul Roat
Bradenton Beach is inching toward evolving a city-
wide recycling program.
Long in the planning either three years or al-
most a decade, depending on how you count it the
city has improved its recycling center at the north end
of Coquina Beach to accept newspaper, aluminum cans
and corrugated cardboard.
That center has been accepting the same articles for
years, but contamination of the recyclables has caused
the city to have to pay to have the material hauled to the
landfill instead of getting any "cash from the trash."
Now, containers are locked except when they are
staffed from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. daily with volunteers,
when residents can bring their recyclables to Coquina
Bayside and drop them off.
The city was paying $8,000 a year to get the con-
taminated material hauled to the landfill. Without the
contamination, the city has "stopped the bleeding" as
Mayor Gail Cole explains it. By selling the cans, paper
and cardboard, Cole said he hopes to bring in more than
$75,000 to the city each year, based on national aver-
ages.
The recycling center at the south end of the city is
only the beginning, though.
Cole and City Commissioner Dawn Baker, the li-
aison to the program, hope to start a demonstration
program in October for curbside recycling in
Bradenton Beach. Three streets in the southern end of
the city and two on the north side will be selected for
the "survey" to determine quantities and effectiveness
of curbside pickup.
Baker and Cole will have different colored plastic
bags dropped off to the selected homes in the test area.
Residents will be informed of what day the recycling
pickups will occur each week, and will be encouraged
to place aluminum cans, paper and cardboard in the
bags. City workers will then pick up the stuff and haul
it to the recycling center.

Cole said national averages for aluminum cans is
about 12 pounds per month per person and, with the
current price of aluminum at 52 cents per pound, the
city could receive more than $1,000 per ton for alumi-
num. The pilot program will determine how Bradenton
Beach compares with national averages for recyclable
collection.
An average family goes through 50 pounds of
newsprint per month, Cole added.
"More and more people are getting involved in
recycling," Baker said, as she and Cole loaded bags of
cans into one of the recycling containers at Coquina
Bayside. "People are supportive of the program."

cross. It was a bag of Funyums and a Dr. Pepper
soda.
They wrote farewell messages on a trash can.
About 25 boys of all ages went out at 7 p.m. and
paddled their surfboards off
the beach and then paddled
back as a tribute to their
friends. Some of the girls
swam out about 300 yards
S as part of their goodbye.
Janae Haupt of Holmes
Beach was Mills' best
friend at Manatee High. It's
difficult for her now to walk
down the canopied pathway
Mills along White Avenue with-
out thinking of Mills, she
said.
"This has never happened before. I've never known
anyone who died," Haupt said. "There's nothing re-
ally you can do but get over it.
"Patrick was one of the best guys. He respected
everyone and got along with everyone. Always a
happy face. Never mad. Surfing was his life. He
loved it. He liked driving around in his Chevy Cava-
lier. It wasn't the best car in the world, but he liked
it. He liked hanging out with his friends. I don't
think he's ever been in trouble. They asked me if the
police would know who he was and I told them they
wouldn't know him because he never got in trouble.
"One thing I've learned is you can't take anything
for granted because you can lose the people closest to
you at any time."
Haupt's mother is Holmes Beach Mayor Carol
Whitmore. She said she went to the memorial service
on White Avenue and was stunned by the moment.
"It's so difficult when children lose their friends at
such a young age," Whitmore said. "It was a beautiful
service. I was. crying."
Jim Nelson is a youth pastor with Young Life, a


L

non-denominational Christian organization that works
with area teens.
When these tough moments occur, Young Life is
there to console them. Nelson said the death of the four
young men hit him hard as well because he's surfed his
entire life, having grown up in St. Augustine and North
Palm Beach.
"A lot of these kids have experienced grief and
some haven't," he said. "I even had one girl who said
she had never been confronted with death. Not grand-
parents, not cats, not dogs, and her reaction was typi-
cal of the stages of grief.
"The standard reaction is they're in shock and can't
believe it. Then they move toward anger, whether it's
aimed at God, or their parents, or themselves.
"One of the things I try to do is not give them easy
answers because there aren't any. This is the way it is.

This is a tragedy and it's OK for them to be angry. I try
to help them understand and come to terms with the
stages of grief.
"A lot of them feel guilty. They're up, they're
down. And this is natural. No one really knows what
to say. There's no set, pat way to get over it. The one
way to do it is to help each other out when they see
a friend is down. They need to support each other.
It's the same with parents, teachers and coaches.
Adults need to be there because they see a bigger
picture, they've had the life experiences and most
adults have been confronted with death. Some of the
emotions they are going through are natural. It's
even OK for them not to feel sad right away. Some-
times it takes days or even weeks for the sadness to
set in. All we can do is help them get over their
grief."


Parking prattle


resurfaces in


Anna Maria
Last year Anna Maria closed parking on
Beach Avenue and Gladiolus Street, which
brought increased traffic to nearby streets and
a bevy of complaints from residents, renters,
visitors and even the president of the Manatee
County Audubon Society who adopted the Bean
Point area for the "Adopt-A-Shore" program.
Many residents mostly those who do not
live within walking distance of the beach said
their right as taxpayers to park along the beach
access streets was impinged.
A parking committee chaired by then-com-
missioner Robert McElheny began meeting a
year ago to discuss the problems.
The group of 11 said in May they were unable
to arrive at one recommendation. Coming from
opposite sides of the issue, the panel included mem-
bers who initiated and signed a petition to have
parking returned to residents and those who asked
the commission to close their streets.
The committee members agreed there should
be no closed parking but the city commission
took no action on their recommendation.
On Aug. 10, a petition signed by 14 residents
representing seven properties in the 100 block of
Beach Avenue was delivered to city hall.
They ask that the city maintain parking re-
strictions on Beach Avenue, stating "the problem
of debris/garbage has diminished, the use of
bushes for changing of clothes as well as toilet
facilities has been eradicated, and the street is
now safe for our children since traffic has signifi-
cantly improved."
Delia Suarez of 119 Beach Avenue said, "I
think the whole situation is straightened out and
I'm satisfied with it the way it is now."








Anna Maria hires building official


Anna Maria Mayor Gary Deffenbaugh said at two
city meetings that the salary range for the vacant building
official position vacant since July is too low to at-
tract applicants.
Wrong. On Monday, Aug. 28, applicant Tim English
of Carrollton, Va., was interviewed and hired. He would
have been the first person interviewed for the job, but
another applicant was visiting family in the area and when
he stopped in the office, he was interviewed.
Deffenbaugh said previously that numerous applica-
tions had been received by the city, but salary requests
exceeded the budget range. He said the city wouldn't be
able to hire a qualified person within the present salary
range. The proposed 2000-01 budget allows a salary range
of $39,000 to $44,000 for a building official.
English agreed to a salary of $44,000 with the addi-
tional benefit of a take-home vehicle.
Deffenbaugh announced English would be hired fol-
lowing an interview the same day by Commissioner Doug
Wolfe and Public Works Director Anne Beck.
Deffenbaugh said English is highly qualified for the
position, ranking in credentials among only 127 other
building officials in the country. English is expected to
return to Virginia to make arrangements for the move to
this area and hopefully be on the job by Sept. 5.
The mayor also stated that English will have to be
"confirmed" by the commission before he is officially
hired.
At previous meetings on the subject of hiring a build-
ing official, Commissioner Tom Skoloda suggested in-
cluding a salary range in the city's advertising for the
position. It seemed the mayor agreed, but a job listing
posted on the Building Officials Association of Florida
website which did not list the salary range was unchanged.
Anna Maria's job position lists: "Salary: Dependent
on qualifications ...."
Some positions with similar qualifications were ad-
vertised on the website including ads for the City of Cape
Canaveral Plans Examiner/Building Inspector, salary
$27,290-$42,474 annually; City of Cape Coral Chief
Plans Examiner, annual salary minimum $32,260.80 and
midpoint $41,121.60; Charlotte County Chief Plans Ex-
aminer, anticipated hiring range $33,134-$40,589; and


Monroe County (Florida Keys), Senior Administrator/
Assistant Building Official, salary $38,699.
Other similar positions offered higher salary ranges,
too, such as a Ft. Pierce job listing for a Building Official/
Administrator in the salary range $36,178-$52,458.
Hollywood, Fla., is seeking a building plans examiner
in the salary range of $36,608-$54,600, while Leon
County is advertising for a Building Inspection Supervi-
sor in the salary range of $31,129.08-$52,531.66 annually.
Leon County also allows for negotiating up to 25 percent
above the base salary based on related education, experi-
ence, and training above the minimum requirements.
Commissioner Jay Hill stated at the Aug. 10 meeting,
"We're in the salary range that most of the cities our size
fall into."
But according to Commissioner Doug Wolfe, who
was screening applicants, everyone was looking for more
than $45,000.
Wolfe said one wanted $60,000 and another wanted
$50,000. They're all asking for more than Anna Maria's
maximum salary.
English listed extensive credentials for the job as a
certified Virginia building official, but did not include a
current position on his resume. His cover letter states he
has 30 years combined experience in construction and
code enforcement and is certified as a master code official.
Former Bradenton Beach building official Whitey
Moran applied for the job seeking $47,000 annually.
Other applicants included Jack L. Graves, building
commissioner for Lakeshire, Mo., John Spurgeon, codes
director of Goodlettsville, Tenn., and David A. Bouchard
of Bradenton, who said he recently purchased property in
Anna Maria and admires the "small town charm."
Bouchard lives in Bradenton and works in St. Peters-
burg as Inside Plant Construction Engineer at Progress
Telecom Inc.
Graves, whose brother lives in the city, stopped by
city hall while on a visit to ask about the position and was
interviewed by Wolfe, but decided to withdraw.
Gary Kilbride of Pembroke Pines, Fla., touted three
years experience as building inspector there and part-time
employment with Florida City after Hurricane Andrew.
Applicant Robert J. McKinney is presently deputy

County commission candidates square off


By Paul Roat
Pledges of citizen involvement versus experience
will be among the choices voters have on Sept. 5 in the
Manatee County Board of Commissioners District 3
Republican race between challenger Jane von
Hahmann and incumbent Stan Stephens.
The pair appeared before about 50 voters Friday at
The Islander's candidate forum, moderated by pub-
lisher Bonner Futch, at Holmes Beach City Hall. The
winner of the Republican primary in District 3 will face
a write-in candidate in the Nov. 7 general election.
District 3 includes Anna Maria Island, Cortez,
north Longboat Key and northwest Bradenton.
The forum led off with incumbent At-Large Commis-
sioner Joe McClash, who suddenly was unopposed in the
Republican primary when challenger Wayne McCammon
dropped out of the race earlier in the week.
He will also face a write-in candidate in the Nov.
7 election.
McClash, 42, said he believed he was fortunate to
have received the community support as a commis-
sioner for 10 years. He said his vision was to "keep the
community as it looks today.
"Most growth is good growth," he added, "but the
Perico Island issue is an example of growth that is go-
ing faster than it should. I didn't have any opposition
until I opposed the Perico issue."
Arvida Co. has plans to develop nearly 900 units
on Perico Island. McClash has opposed the Bradenton
development. The matter is pending in the courts.
"I like my home the way it is," McClash said of
Manatee County. "The greed needs to stop. The greed
needs to stop."

The candidates
Stephens, 54, was born in Brooksville and moved
to Manatee County in 1968. He has a B.S. degree from
Florida State University. He is a former teacher and
recreation director of Manatee County. He is president
of Manasota Commercial Construction Co. and is an
investor.
Stephens is married and has two children and one


grandchild.
He is a member of Bradenton Kiwanis, Manatee
County Community Blood Center and Goodwill Indus-
tries. He is a former executive director of United Way
of Manatee County and past advisor to Manatee High
School Key Club.
"I have a record of achievement, a record of ac-
complishment," Stephens said. "I have faced difficult
and tough issues. Growth is tough, but it has been tough
since 1985, because people come to Manatee County
and want to make it their home."
Stephens, who serves on the Sarasota-Manatee
Metropolitan Planning Organization, said transporta-
tion is the key issue facing the county. "We have wa-
ter, we have a sewer system, we have a landfill for the
future. But traffic congestion is the key issue.
He said that the Perico Island issue is not the prob-
lem, but it "is the symptom of the problem. All that
traffic funnels onto two roads to the Island."
Stephens said he would urge traffic analysis on
weekends, when traffic is heavy and traffic counts of-
ten are not factored into long-range planning.
"We need to do a better job of dealing with traffic,"
he added.
Von Hahmann, 46, owns Surfing World West in
Cortez with her husband, Rocky, as well as having
rental properties. She has a bachelor of arts degree from
Florida Technological University, now University of
Central Florida. She was born in Orlando and moved
here in 1976. She has three sons.
She is the chair of Cortez Waterfronts Florida and
member and former chair of Sugg Middle School's

School Advisory Council. She is a member, eucharis-
tic minister, choir member and liturgical reader at
Saints Peter and Paul The Apostles Catholic Church.
"Four years ago I ran against Stan for the county
commission," von Hahmann said. "I raised $795,
started knocking on doors in the district, and came
within 136 votes of coming into a run-off with him
with no name recognition."
She said she would serve the citizens of the
district, something she said Stephens was not
doing. "I don't believe the citizens have been rep-
resented. Their issues have not been addressed.
The commissioner's job is to represent us."

Questions
Both candidates addressed the issue of beach
renourishment on Anna Maria Island, scheduled for
next year.
"After I was elected in 1992, I became the leading
advocate of beach renourishment," Stephens said. "I
just came back from Washington, D.C., to meet with
the officials there to get funding for the project. I take
nothing from the people who first worked to get the
beach renourished, but at this time I'm the leading ad-
vocate of beach renourishment. It is important."
Von Hahmann said she too supported beach
renourishment, but said of Stephens that "it is your job
to get that money. It is a 50-year contract to renourish
the beach."

restrooms, landscaping, both agreed improvements
should be made.
"The beaches do look a mess," von Hahmann said.
"The commission should do everything it can to aid the
beach." She said she would develop a citizen advocacy
council for the district to work toward solving beach
and other problems.
Stephens said the beach "is the focal point for us."
He said he had worked to get funding for restroom
improvements at Coquina and Manatee Public beaches,
and that more work was needed.
Both candidates were questioned on the faltering
process of developing a multi-use ball field in Holmes
Beach, the opening of which has been pushed back
months from when it was scheduled to be in use.
Stephens said the county was originally asked to
contribute $25,000 for the field. After study, it was
determined not to be enough money, he said, and an-
other $25,000 was contributed. "It's discouraging, to
say the least," he said of the delays. "We need to do a
much better job."
Von Hahmann said the delays "again show a lack of
representation and no one wants to solve the problem."
Florida Department of Transportation officials will
start the planning process later this year or early next
year to determine the fate of the Anna Maria Island
Bridge linking Perico Island and the mainland to Anna
Maria Island.
Von Hahmann said she did not favor a four-lane
bridge to replace the current two-lane span. "I don't see
that a four-lane bridge going to a two-lane Island will
do any good," she said. "I would like to look at a bridge
with emergency lanes."
Stephens said he supported a fixed-span bridge in
the past and continues to do so today. "I would like to
see a 42-foot or 45-foot-high fixed-span bridge, but the
U.S. Coast Guard has said that is not possible."
Stephens said he would form a "blue-ribbon trans-
portation committee to bring all the people to the table
to discuss what is in the best interest to all."
Both candidates agreed the position as county com-
missioner should be a full-time job.
The two also agreed a trolley system on the Island

Primary election day next Tuesday: vote!


Island voters will go to the polls Tuesday, Sept. 5
to choose a variety of national, state and county can-
didates.
All voters Republican, Democrat and Non-par-
tisan can choose between non-partisan candidates
for school board district 2 Clint Chapman and incum-
bent Harry G. Kinnan.
Another non-partisan race is for Sarasota-Mana-
tee Airport Authority Seat 2. The race is between Jack
Rynerson and Edwin T. Smith.
There are 1,465 non-partisan voters on the Island,
which is 23 percent of the total electorate.
Island Democrats have a few more choices on
their ballot.
Democratic U.S. Senate candidates include
Newall Jerome Daughtrey, David B. Higginbottom
and Bill Nelson.
There are also two Democrats running for the U.S.
Congress District 13 seat: Daniel E. Dunn and Robert
Salzberg.
And for Commissioner of Education Democrats
choose between James Bush III and George H.


was a good idea and should be pursued. Von Hahmann
said she also would like to pursue a park-and-ride sys-
tem to ferry people to the Island. Stephens said such a
system where people would park their cars at a central
location on the mainland and ride a bus to the beach
would not work.
Both von Hahmann and Stephens said they would
not support mandatory low-water, low-maintenance
xeriscape programs for new development, although
both agreed some xeriscape landscaping should be
encouraged for new developments.
Both candidates said a better public education sys-
tem would have to be implemented before any addi-
tional sales tax levies could be imposed in the county.
"I don't believe the public was well educated be-
fore the last referendum," von Hahmann said. "I could
support putting it before the public again as long as it
was need-driven and not want-driven."


Sheldon.
There are 2,090 Democrats on the Island, 31 per-
cent of the electorate.
Republicans have the most choices come primary
election day. For U.S. Senate, members of the GOP
can select from Hamilton A.S. Bartlett or Bill
McCollum. Candidate Ray Sessman's name will ap-
pear on the ballot although he has withdrawn.
For Manatee County Supervisor of Elections, in-
cumbent Robert (Bob) Sweat is challenged by Bob
Ranick. George Mendez is listed on the ballot but
withdrew from the race.
For Board of County Commissioners District 3,
incumbent Stan E. Stephens is challenged by Jan von
Hahmann.
Although the ballot will contain the Board of
County Commissioners District 7 At-large race be-
tween Wayne C. McCammon and incumbent Joe
McClash, McCammon withdrew from the race and
his votes will not be counted.
There are 3,072 registered Republicans on the Is-
land, 46 percent of the electorate.


Stephens said he voted against putting the one-cent
sales tax on the ballot the last time "because of the way
it was presented. Until we all get together the school
board, the county and the municipalities and deter-
mine how to use the money, I can't support it."
And what sets each candidate apart from the other?
"I believe it's my willingness to be attached to citi-
zens and represent citizen's issues," von Hahmann
said. "I have no special interest, no bias, no favoritism.
My opponent is not attached to the community, not
willing to get down in the dirt for the citizens of Dis-
trict 3. We just don't see him. He should be out there
fighting for us."
"I believe my best quality is leadership," Stephens
said. "I have business and governmental experience. You
have to understand how the process works out. I bring a
balance to the table. I know the players in Tallahassee and
in Washington. This is all about leadership."

It's not like we haven't

been here before
We want recycling and we want it now.
For goodness sake, third-world countries may have
curbside recycling before Bradenton Beach gets to it.
But at least the city has begun the process of get-
ting some form of viable recycling drive going rather
than the slipshod, costly bin process the city has had for
years. Those pesky bins, despite some people's best
intents and diligent loading and unloading of cans,
newspapers and other recyclable materials, generally
served as only a way station on the way to the landfill.
Now, though, the bins are locked at night and
manned or personed by volunteers during the
mornings. People can bring newspaper, aluminum cans
and corrugated cardboard down to the center at the
north end of Coquina Bayside park.
Now, it is hoped, the city can actually make some
money off all that valuable "stuff."
And there are plans to do a trial run with curbside
recycling on a few streets in the city later this year. If
that works, city officials have said and "works"
means that people join in the process and the city can
make some money Bradenton Beach could be up
and fully recyclable just like all the other cities in
Manatee County.
As we have said:
It's about time. We want it now.
And so should the city and its citizens.
If some of the figures presented by officials in
Bradenton Beach are to believed, the financial gain to
the city could be upwards of $75,000 each year. That
really is "cash from trash" for the city and could help
offset financial losses suffered through the sunsetting
of the one-cent sales tax windfall all Manatee County
cities received for five years.
So even though Bradenton Beach is a little delayed
in its recycling efforts, those efforts at least have begun
to really be made.

Vote Tuesday. Please!
Tuesday is primary election day for us all. We have
national races, Florida races, local races upon which to
cast our "bet" at the ballot box or, more correctly,
the electronic reader.
We urge you all to get out and vote. And while
you're going by city hall, pick up a re-entry tag, too.
It'll save you a ton of time if we have to evacuate the
Island and you want to get back home.

My Sadie story rescue,
recovery, return home
When my husband Robert and I moved to this beau-
tiful island from the east coast of Florida six years ago, I
was in awe as I observed the Anna Maria Island Turtle
Watch doing their thing on the beach every morning.
I thought they must be from Mote Marine Laboratory
and could only imagine the education and training they
must require to be trusted with such an important job. I had
no idea that they were dedicated volunteers, ordinary
people like you and me, that cared enough about the en-
dangered sea turtles to donate their free time and work
hard for their preservation.
I certainly never dreamed that I would be a proud
member of their ranks, nor even play a small part in the
rescue of our now famous "Sadie," the stranded logger-
head that was just released back into the Gulf on Aug. 23
with a satellite on her back after more than a year in cap-
tivity recuperating from her injuries.
When I think back to July 1999, I believe it was re-
ally a miracle that I found her at all. It was before dawn
and still very dark on Coquina Beach. As I carefully made
my way, looking for new nests and checking existing nests
for signs of hatching, I caught a movement out of the cor-
ner of my eye. It was so slight I was sure I'd imagined it,
but something made me turn around. When my eyes ad-
justed, I couldn't believe what I saw! A huge loggerhead,
395 pounds as it turned out, was stranded on the rocks.
She had come up to nest in an area where the sand was
level with a concrete erosion groin on one side and a sheer
drop on the other. She'd fallen off the groin and turned
upside-down on the jagged rocks. Her bottom shell was
exposed revealing an ugly bleeding crack down its length.
Her head was hanging back over a hole she'd dug flailing
about in an attempt to right herself.
I don't know how long she'd been there, but I could
see that she was exhausted, and from the looks of her, near
death. Her movements were infrequent and weak. She
would rally, feebly trying to lift her head and wave her
flippers, then get so still I thought surely she'd died.


I didn't know what to do. I didn't want to leave her,
yet I knew I had to get help.
Though I've never walked the beach without a cell
phone since then, that morning, as Jimmy Buffett says, I
was incommunicado, so I ran the mile or so to the house
of AMITW volunteers Lee and Marvin Zerkel.
Marvin recruited me for the AMITW three years ago.
He and his wife, Lee, are coordinators for that long sec-
tion of beach and work tirelessly for our cause. They and
Suzi Fox are the only friends I have that cheerfully answer
their phone for me before 6 a.m.
I'm a walker- walking at least four miles a day ev-
ery day but I am definitely not a runner. My lungs were
about to explode as I pounded on their door. When they
answered, they were already pulling on their uniforms,
instinctively sensing an emergency. In less than five min-
utes, we were back on the beach with Sadie, and Suzi and
her volunteers were on the way.
While we waited, Marvin and I did what we could to
keep the turtle comfortable, filling in the hole beneath her
head with sand and pouring buckets of salt water over her
body to keep her hydrated, while Lee got it all on video.
After the party of rescuers arrived, I continued my
walk. Somebody has to walk each section of the beach
every morning during turtle season, regardless.
Sadie's rescuers, Suzi, Lee, Marvin and a lot of vol-
unteers that I would name if I knew them all, managed to
lift her off the rocks, into Suzi's truck, and transport her
to Mote Marine. Now, 13 months and many thousands of
dollars later, we have a success story.
I was out there on the Gulf Aug. 23 when Sadie was
released. Several boats filled with people, not just any
people, but the people who rescued Sadie, operated on her,
watched over her in shifts around he clock, fed and cared
for her and bonded with her in some way, were present
when she was released.
All in all, it was ajob well done. I admit I teared up a
little when Sadie swam away. She never hesitated. One
deep dive and she was gone. I could tell that she was
happy to be back where she belonged. Sadie was home.

Bradenton Beach has model turtle ordinance


By Laurie Krosney
Islander Reporter
Bradenton Beach has a turtle protection ordinance that
serves as a model for cities up and down the Gulf and
Atlantic coasts.
That's what Suzi Fox, who holds the state marine
turtle preservation permit for Anna Maria Island, told
Bradenton Beach city commissioners last week.
Fox said Bradenton Beach is in 95 percent compli-
ance with the model ordinance, which is designed to pro-
tect the hatchlings as they emerge from their nests on the
beaches. The baby turtles' instinct is to head toward the
light, which in a perfect environment would lead them
straight to the Gulf.
Streetlights and lights from homes, motels, condo-
miniums or restaurants create problems, confusing the
young turtles, who then become disoriented and head
away from the Gulf toward the brightest lights. Unfortu-
nately, some of those bright lights take hatchlings across
roads, and the little hatchlings may be run over by cars.
During the 1998 hatching .season, Fox said she and
members of her all-volunteer turtle protection group had
been up all night trying to rescue hundreds of turtles that
had hatched and were disoriented from nests.
"They were all over the place," Fox remembered. "It
was carnage. I had just had it. I was covered in blood and
turtle gore from all the babies that were smashed in traf-
fic. It was just awful."
She was on the doorstep of Bradenton Beach City
Hall when it opened the next morning, determined to get
some protection for the turtles. "I didn't even go home and
clean up," Fox said. She said she just grabbed then-Mayor
Connie Drescher and started begging.
"I was sobbing and pleading," Fox said. "I guess I was
pretty emotional. The mayor heard me and felt the need.
She took a look at me and she just knew the situation was
desperate."
The Island Turtle Watch volunteers were promised
support by the city. Fox said she researched other cities'
ordinances and ended up using one that was on its way to
being passed in Sarasota and one in the works for Char-
lotte County. She said people working on those and simi-

lar ordinances were able to help her avoid some of the pit-
falls they had encountered.
This is the second turtle nesting season since the or-
dinance was adopted in fall 1998, and Fox said she is
vastly encouraged by the cooperation of the city and par-
ticularly Code Enforcement Officer Gerry Rathvon.
Rathvon assisted in writing the law and is working
hard to enforce it, Fox said, and the law allows Rathvon
to issue citations to people who won't turn out the lights
or keep equipment off their beaches.
Rathvon said she sees her job primarily as one of an
educator.
"Most people will help protect turtles if they just
know what they need to do," Rathvon said.
"Bradenton Beach has a large tourist population,"
Rathvon said, "and the transients don't know they should
turn off the lights when they sit out on their porches or
lanais," Rathvon said. She urges people to use candles
instead of turning on lights.
She added that she is reluctant to issue citations to
people whose lights are not in compliance with the city
law because city street lights are also in violation. Rathvon
is working with the Florida Department of Transportation
and Florida Power & Light to correct the problem, but
there is still no perfect solution.

Plans are in the works to raise funds for streetlight
replacement.
Rathvon said she advises people to look at things from
the turtle's point of view.
"I get down on the ground on the beach and look up
at the streetlights and the lights at the properties along the
beach," she said with a grin. "I think about what the turtle
sees, and then I know which lights are a problem."
People cooperate almost all the time once there see a
problem, Rathvon and Fox both agreed. The pair knock
on doors to ask residents and tourists to turn off their lights,
and "99 percent of the time they comply," Rathvon said.
Fox said new informational hand outs, door knob
hangers and small free-standing information "tents"
should help get the word out. Turtle Watch got the infor-
mational material printed with a grant.
Fox said she is encouraged with the city ordinance,
stating the city is the most cooperative with the Turtle
Watch group on the Island.
"The Island is becoming known all over in turtle pres-
ervation circles," said Fox, "and Bradenton Beach's ordi-
nance is a big part of the reason."


Turtle protector Suzi Fox in
'Salute to Women'
Suzi Fox, who holds the state permit for ma-
rine turtle preservation on Anna Maria Island, has
been nominated for an award in Eckerd Corp.'s
"Salute to Women" program.
The program annually honors a woman in
each of the company's communities as "an ex-
traordinary volunteer." Of 2,700 nominees, 100
will be chosen as "the Eckerd 100." Each of the
100 will receive a $1,000 grant in her name to the
nonprofit organization of her choice, an invitation
to attend a symposium on volunteer and women's
issues in Washington, D.C., Sept. 20-22, and a
personalized Web site.
"The Eckerd 100" will be announced Sept. 20,
said the company.

Anna Maria commissioners override planners


By Ann McGrath
Islander Reporter
"If we're going to continue to allow these vari-
ances, we might as well throw away our building
code," Anna Maria Commissioner Thomas Skoloda
said.
When Waterfront Restaurant owner Steve Barnes
appeared before Anna Maria commissioners at their
Aug. 24 meeting requesting a variance to construct an
awning over the restaurant deck, the request was ap-
proved by a 3-2 vote.
This approval came after Barnes' request for an
awning at his restaurant, 111 S. Bay Blvd., was turned
down by the Planning and Zoning Board in June.
Barnes told the P&Z Board and city commission-
ers that his request was based on a "hardship" due to
heat.
"My air conditioning bill was $1,100 last month
alone," Barnes said. With the addition of an awning,
patrons and wait staff could be more comfortable, he
added.
P&Z Chairman Doug Copeland told the commis-
sioners he voted against the variance because he didn't
see a hardship. "In Florida it's hot sometimes and it
rains. Other outdoor restaurants have been successful
without awnings and I failed to see a hardship in this
case," Copeland said.
"We need clarification and definition of what
we're going to accept as a hardship," Skoloda said.
"There are certain criteria to recognize a hardship. I've
had difficulty with a number of variance requests. 'It
will allow me to sell at a higher price,' for instance. I'd
like some guidance as to what we're going to accept as
a hardship," Skoloda said.
Carol Ann Magill of Spring Avenue said she
agreed with Skoloda, that there is a need for clarifica-
tion of the definition of "hardship." Magill said the
commissioners should consider the history of the prop-
erty, and the fact that the owner knew the deck was


The eight criteria that define a hardship in the
planning and zoning regulations are as follows:
The Planning & Zoning Board shall recom-
mend approval of no variance unless it makes a
positive finding, based on substantial, competent
evidence on each of the following:
A. There are substantial, practical difficulties
and hardships in carrying out the strict letter of
the regulation, and that these difficulties and
hardships are due to existing special conditions
and unique circumstances which are peculiar to
the specific property involved, and which are not
generally applicable to other properties or struc-
tures in the same district.
B. The condition giving rise to the requested
variance is due to unique circumstances not cre-
ated by the applicant or any other person pres-
ently having an interest in the property.
C. The variance request is not based exclu-


exposed when he bought the restaurant.
Glenn Neumann, owner of Neumann's Island
Beach Store at 427 Pine Ave., spoke in favor of Barnes'
awning. "I got turned down by the P&Z and the com-
mission approved my variance. I think he should have
it," Neumann said, adding the fact that his awning is
only three feet from the sidewalk. "I think the guy
ought to have his awning. It would beautify that area
and help him out on his electric bill."
"Part of P&Z's objection concerned placing a non-
conforming structure over another non-conforming
structure," Skoloda said.
"The setback is the zoning ordinance, which states
10 feet back from the sidewalk," Commissioner Doug


sively upon a desire to reduce the cost of develop-
ing the site.
D. The proposed variance will not substan-
tially increase congestion on surrounding public
streets, the danger of fire or other hazard to the
public.
E. The proposed variance will not substan-
tially diminish property value in, or alter the es-
sential character of, the area surrounding the site.
F. The variance request is not based on the
presence of non-conformities in the district or
adjoining districts.
G. The proposed variance is the minimum
modification of the regulation at issue that will
afford viable relief.
H. The effect of the proposed variance is in
harmony with the general intent of the Compre-
hensive Plan, Ordinance 96-549, and the specific
intent of the subject area of the provision.


Wolfe said.
Wolfe added that he had a problem with the request
because the Waterfront's deck is at the property edge
and out to the sidewalk. "It's a non-conforming deck
and now they propose a non-conforming awning be-
cause of the setback," he said.
Skoloda said that a suggestion of the planning
commission was to place the awning only to the right
of way.
When Commissioner Bob Barlow asked if there
was a way to move the awning supports back, away
from the city's right of way, Barnes said no, because

a smaller "pull-out" awning would only withstand
winds of 25 mph rather than 75 mph as P&Z had re-
quested.
Commissioner Jay Hill asked Copeland if the P&Z
members had been informed that the structure would
have roll-down sides.
Copeland said no, and that roll-down sides would
make it a different structure.
Barnes said the sides he plans to use are the same
as those allowed at the city pier and do not require a
building permit.
Wolfe made a motion to accept the recommenda-
tions of the P&Z to deny the variance, but the motion
was defeated by a 3-2 vote, with Wolfe and Skoloda
voting in favor.
Then Barlow made a motion to approve the vari-
ance for the construction of the awning and it was ap-
proved by a 3-2 vote. Wolfe and Skoloda opposed it.
Mayor Gary Deffenbaugh said the awning would
be an addition to the aesthetics of the city.

oil company. He foresees a lot of work ahead.
One of his greatest fans is his mother, Bonny Cloud
of Anna Maria City. "How wonderful it is," she said,
"to see a son making it totally on his own and staying
in your own back yard."
Self has been working ever since he was 9. "My
Dad told me to get going if I wanted to get going," he
recalled. "I was cutting up to 40 lawns, with a lot of
help from him. By the time I was 16 he told me I could
go ahead on my own if I wanted to, and I did."
He's a Bradenton native, graduating from Manatee
High School in 1987 and going right to work at the
service station on the Island. It was a 76 station then,
he said, later becoming BP.
Rich McCormick owned the station, and soon
added the Longbeach Chevron at the north end of
Longboat Key to his holdings. Self bought that station
from him in 1995.
He is married and has two children, 6-year-old
Allyson and 2-year-old Joshua, who has had two open-
heart operations, grandma Cloud said.
Self will operate both stations, he said "Maybe
with two businesses I can make a fair living."
The station in Holmes Beach has suffered dwin-
dling business in recent years and he expects it will take
a lot of work to bring it back up.
He's used to working, he notes, expressing grati-
tude to his father for getting him started on the right
track. "I'm glad I learned how to work when I was a
kid," he said. "It's gotten me this far along and I sure
thank my parents for it."


We need Stan Stephens to
continue to give our residents
the leadership and constituency
service we deserve.

Breiter offers investment advice
free to nonprofits
Breiter Capital Management Inc. of Anna Maria

Mikell of the Breiter group, with appointments made
at 778-1900.
"The concerns and objectives of nonprofits are
unique and a review of a current plan for a second opin-
ion could add some fresh ideas toward the
organization's goals," Mikell said. "Typically such an
organization's invested funds are used to provide fund-
ing for future programs and cash flow needs."

FDR nomination at


Tingley Library ice cream social


Beulah Hooks Hannah Tingley's booming support
of Franklin Delano Roosevelt at the 1932 Democratic
Convention will be featured at an ice cream social cel-
ebrating Ms. Tingley's birthday.

cluding a long residence in Bradenton Beach and a
bequest that was the foundation of the Tingley Memo-
rial Library there.
Her birthday will be noted at 1 p.m. Thursday,


If you hate


bugs, you'll


love Dr. Butler
By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Which infuriating pest would you rather get rid of:
Mosquito? Fire ant? No-see-um?
How about all three? Dr. Jerry Butler and his tal-
ented people at the University of Florida have devel-
oped an herbal repellent that puts the run on all three,
plus ticks. Plus gnats and others.
It only took them 16 years at the UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences in Gainesville. They
tested nearly 4,000 compounds before getting proof of
the efficacy of geraniol, a relative of citronella which
has been used against mosquitoes for decades.
Geraniol is derived from lemon grass and other
plants and is found in food, especially Thai food. The
plants have developed a natural defense against feed-
ing insects.
One of the great things about the product, aside
from its bug-repellent application, is that it is natural
and environmentally friendly, said its developer.
It is an alternative to insecticides based on DEET,
most widely used active ingredient in repellents for 40
years or more, said Butler. "This should revolutionize
the market," he said.
It has been termed "generally regarded as safe" by
the U.S. Environmental Protective Agency and is in
production for commercial sale. DEET has raised
safety concerns and toxicity problems, particularly with
children. These problems have forced manufacturers to
reduce the amount of DEET in various products to 7
percent from 100 percent in the past 15 years.
The EPA has issued new label instructions to stop
children from handling DEET products, said Marcia
Mulkey, director of the Office of Pesticide Programs at
EPA.
Butler's research has been supported by grants
from International Flowers and Fragrances of Union
Beach, N.J., and then by the university division. His
geraniol is patented by the university and licensed to
Natural Ltd., Great Neck, N.Y., which is marketing it
under the names MosquitoSafe, TickSafe and
FireantSafe, said Butler.
Applied to the skin, the repellents provide four
hours of protection against a wide range of biting in-
sects. As for biting midges, universally hated as "no-
see-ums," Butler said the geraniol-based products
"help better than anything else against the no-see-ums."
Even with the EPA's blessing, full endorsement by
the U.S. government "would take about 100 million
dollars and several years," Butler said.


Terhardt's paintings featured at
Artists Guild gallery
Oils and watercolors by Ann M. Terhardt will be
featured in an exhibit during September at the gallery
of the Artists Guild of Anna Maria Island, 5414 Marina
Drive, Holmes Beach.
Her themes are primarily birds and portraiture. The
gallery also exhibits works by 64 other local artists in
pottery, stained glass, oils and watercolors. Hours are
10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to
1:30 p.m. Saturday. Details are available at 778-2424.


Aug. 31, at the library, 111 Second St., behind
Bradenton Beach City Hall.
Opening that day will be her collection of memora-
bilia from her life in politics, recently given to the library.
It was discovered by a niece, Dorothy Hooks McDuffie
of Nettleton, Miss., while she was cleaning out old boxes.
The artifacts include Ms. Tingley's hand-written
speech to the convention, her delegate badge, her en-
try passes for Roosevelt's 1933 and 1937 inaugura-
tions, campaign buttons, invitations to the White House
from Roosevelt and his wife Eleanor, copies of her
speeches and press clippings.
"Together they present a picture of a powerful and
impassioned lady who used her talents to speak out on
the issues of the day," said the library's Carol
Sandidge. "She championed the rights of women and
encouraged them to become involved."
Further information may be obtained at 779-1208.

Privateers launch search
for Bud Girls 2000
The search is on locally for the 2000 Bud
Girls, sponsored by the Anna Maria Island
Privateers, said Mitch Stewart, president of the
social service organization.
The contest for the year's representatives
will be at the Manatee County Fairgrounds in
Palmetto at 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 9, Stewart
said. The top four plus two alternates will be
selected as Bud Girls 2000.
"The girls will be judged on their perfor-
mances in a question-and-answer segment, per-
sonality and bathing suit competition," he said.
Entry forms are available from Stewart at
748-2143. Entry fee is $25.

Moons' Air & Energy wins top award


Stewart and Trudy Moon's Air & Energy Inc. has
won the "top business" award of the Manatee Cham-
ber of Commerce.
Their honor came in the category "business with no
more than 50 employees and sales under $5 million an-
nually." Air & Energy has 26 employees, "Many of
them," Trudy said, "with us 15, 16, 17 years.
"We are like a big extended family. We had a huge
party for all the employees and their families' when the
company won the award through the employees' ef-
forts. It is a service company and heavily dependent on
its workers."
The Moons took over the Holmes Beach company
more than a decade ago and built from an air condition-
ing and heating business to include plumbing and duct-
cleaning, and are expanding beyond Anna Maria Island
into mainland markets.
Employees get annual reviews and raises, techni-
cal training, out-of-state sales programs, medical and
pension plans, and at least two big social functions
every year. An aggressive customer relations program
helps employees, customers and the company, the
Moons said.
Along with the busy business, the owners are ac-
tive in the corimunity. He is on the board of the Mana-
tee chamber, a director of the Anna Maria Island Com-
munity Center and chairman of the West Manatee Fire
& Rescue Pension Board. Trudy chairs the annual
Affaire to Remember auction dinner raising funds for
the Center and serves on committees for the Snooty
Gala at the South Florida Museum and the St. Stephens
School annual auction dinner.

Final pilgrimage for Anna Maria's loggerhead Sadie

By Bonner Futch
Anna Maria Island Turtle Watch volunteers de-
served a success story and they have one.
A loggerhead that came ashore to nest on Coquina
Beach, took a fall from a groin onto rocks, split its
belly, was rescued, treated surgically, nursed and re-
turned to the Gulf of Mexico on Aug. 23.
Turtle Watch leader Suzi Fox, pressed to give the
turtle a name before scientists applied it a number, con-
jured up Sadie after her aunt. And so, Sadie was taken .
to Mote Marine Laboratory on Sarasota's City Island
where she was induced to lay her eggs and operated on
- twice to correct the crack in the bottom shell.
A veterinary surgeon put her back together, pull-
ing the cracked shell together and fixed it in place with
a metal plate and clips.
Arlene Byrne found the turtle during her morning
walk in search of nesting turtles and nests. Her narra-
tive is published with the editor letters this week, and
it's quite moving.
Byrne, Fox, the surgeon and dozens of other folks
took a boat trip with the Mote caregivers to return Sadie L
to the Gulf.

Transmitting, tracking
Mote Marine Laboratory scientists will track Sadie
in her future trevails via satellite from the transmit-
ter installed on her shell with tape and fiberglass. A
handwritten note says, "Iffound, please call..."
which may refer to the satellite, the turtle, or both.

had a boatload of well wishers, as did Ken Jackson of
Anna Maria and a trawler full of volunteers out of
Mote. There was a press boat, and a load of scientists
and interns and more volunteers on Mote's "Eugenie
Clark" with Sadie.
Fox and myself made the trek down to Mote from
Anna Maria with Jackson, leaving at 8 a.m. It was a
beautiful day, but a little rough, as Suzi and I both
spilled our coffee before we'd passed the Anna Maria
City Pier.
We picked up some passengers and rendezvoused
at the Salty Dog at New Pass. We followed the lead of
the Mote crew north in the Gulf, figuring to drop Sadie
off three miles offshore of Coquina Beach.
A small mishap occurred halfway when one of the
small Mote boats ran out of gas, and then we were off
again.
We arrived at the drop off site and the small boat

loads of volunteers and the trawler gathered around the
"Eugenie Clark."
The media interviewed Byrne, took a lot of pictures
and video and then the moment of release finally ar-
rived.
They hoisted Sadie in a canvas sling, lowered her
to the water where divers, including Taylor, waited,
Someone in the water unhitched Sadie and she imme-
diately dove, swam past our boat and headed down and
out of sight.
There were more than a few shared tears.
It was "so long, Sadie," but not without a little in-
surance that we'd all be "hearing" from her again.
Sadie is wearing a transmitter and the last report
Fox had of her whereabouts, Sadie was 50 miles off-
shore, 30 miles north of Venice.

Joan Voyles taking her art to new levels


By Diana Bogan
Islander Correspondent
What started out as a vacation activity has mush-
roomed into a fulltime career for Joan Voyles. In the
last two years she has devoted her time to marketing
her art and refining her craft.
Constantly learning and growing, her volume of
work is also growing and becoming more diverse.
Her current collection of Island art consists of close
to 100 scenes of Cortez, Egmont Key and areas on
Anna Maria Island. Her art captures the essence of a
place, and currently she has been working on featuring
more people and activity in her landscape scenes.
You may already be familiar with her work. Many
local establishments feature her art on T-shirts, places
like Duffy's Tavern, Big Olaf, the Sea Hag, and the
Star Fish Co. and Restaurant. She also has art hung in
Chapters and Bistro at Island's End.
"Pictures and paintings are like children to me and
they're hard to part with," admits Voyles. "Creating prints
to sell is a way of having my cake and eating it, too."
Recently Voyles has embarked on a new venture
to produce archival-quality prints. The quality is much
better than the laser printings she sold in the past.
The new Giclees method of printmaking is becom-
ing more popular in the art world. This process allows
artists the flexibility of changing the size of the origi-
nal work and having it recreated using both archival
paper and archival inks, increasing the value of the
Sprint. Giclees prints are definitely gallery quality prints
that can fetch a higher end price.
"The integrity of the paper and ink is better and this
method is more economical," says Voyles. "I can take
orders and have prints made on demand rather than
having to adhere to a minimum print run." Minimum
runs usually start at 500 copies to save on costs.
In addition to her T-shirt and Glicees prints, Voyles
has been exploring what she calls a low-tech abstract
art form. Through courses at the University of South
Florida, where she studies intermodal, or expressive
arts, she has begun doing "Touch Drawings."
Voyles puts ink on a flat surface and lays a sheet
of paper on top. Then using her fingers she draws on
the back. The result is a more spontaneous work that

she says can help artists tune into themselves.
"Expressive arts is the study of our inner source of
creativity. The touch drawing process is very therapeu-
tic," says Voyles.
Voyles hopes to run a workshop on the process of
touch drawing in the near future. Meanwhile she's pre-
paring to take up an internship at the Moffat Cancer
Center in Tampa this fall.
"Intermodal arts, (which combines all art forms
including music and movement,) is taking healing to a
new area," explains Voyles. "Art is used to help create
an environment of support and encouragement."
In some instances, she says, she may work with the
patients or their families to either explore their illness,
or even divert their focus for a little while.
Voyles has taken classes for two years and has dis-
covered some of her styles have changed, as well as
some of her reasons for painting.
"Splitting my focus between being an artist and a
student has enriched and stretched my thinking," she
says. "I'm learning to identify where creativity comes
from and to create its flow."
Voyles plans to continue taking courses at USF and
is hoping to participate in a weekend workshop with
her son, who recently expressed an interest in painting.

Jaws answers Lisk question
during Bucs game
Brad Lisk of Bradenton Beach has been a Tampa
Bay Buccaneers football fan since he can remember.
As a result, he's had a couple of brushes with 15 min-
-utes of fame.
The second time came Aug. 25 during the first
quarter of the last pre-season Buc game against the
Kansas City Chiefs.
Lisk sent in a question to Bucs analyst and former
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Ron "Jaws" Jaworski
who said he had received "a good question from Brad
on Anna Maria Island."
In 1979, the Bucs had the stingiest defense in the
National Football League. Jaworski and the Eagles
came into Tampa Stadium heavily favored to win a
playoff game against the Bucs. Jaworski and company
ran into the proverbial buzz saw.
Lisk asked Jaworski if the '79 Bucs defense was
better than the current group which is considered the
best in the NFL.
"I remember that defense and they were good, real
good," Jaworski told the television audience during a
- break in the game. "We were favored and got beat by
one of the best defenses in the NFL."
Lisk said he had been wanting to ask Jaworski that
question for a long time.
"In 1979, the Bucs had the No. 1 defense. Jaworski
said he thinks today's Bucs defense is better than the
'79 group," Lisk said. "He feels the Bucs have more
talent now than then. He said all 11 starters today are
talented while only five on the team then had the kind
of talent he sees in the current defense. Today's team
has lot more team speed than the '79 team which in-
cluded Leroy Selmon, Dewey Selmon, Scott Brantley,

Vajra Morano, 7, shows off winning form as he scores a goal during tryouts for fall soccer at the Anna Maria
Island Community Center. Morano and 200 other children up to age 17 will compete in what is typically some
of the most exciting and hilarious soccer action on the southern rim of Tampa Bay. Games begin on Sept. 11.

Anyone who saw the Bucs crush the Chiefs the
other night would agree. The Chiefs scored two touch-
downs but both were given up by the offense on an
interception and fumble. The defense was rock solid.
"I went to my first Buc game when I was 11," Lisk
said. "Then I took my boys Tanner and Shane Pelkey
to the last game played in Tampa Stadium a couple
years ago when the Bucs beat Detroit in a playoff
game. Back in the 1970s the Bucs were bad and tick-
ets were so easy to get people would leave them tucked
behind their windshield wipers for someone to take.
"We went up recently and talked to safety Jeff
Popovich and fullback Mike Alstott and both made
time to talk to my sons. Popovich made two great plays
the other night and it looks like he'll make the team. He
hits like John Lynch."

But Lisk has a better story about a brush with Bucs
fame.
"My big Bucs story was when Vinny Testaverde
was the Bucs quarterback and Lynn Dickey led the
Green Bay Packers," Lisk said. "Both teams were so
bad that the game was promoted as the Battle of the
Bay of Pigs. I made this sign and it read, 'Will quarter-
back for beer.' I was walking around the stadium and
people were handing me beer right and left.
"The next day there was a color picture of me on
the front page of the Tampa Tribune and Ron & Ron,
who had a morning radio show, were saying on air
'Who is this crazy guy? We want to get in touch with
him.' A friend called them and told Ron and Ron where
they could find me. They called me at work and we

Manatee death watch, old and new news of interest


It's clean-off-the-desk time again. Here's a bunch
of news McNuggets you may find of interest.

Marine mammal news
There's bad news on the manatee front in Florida.
Sea cow-boat collisions so far this year total 61, dra-
matically up from the 41 in 1998.
The manatee death toll has prompted Gov. Jeb
Bush to implement public service announcements on
TV to alert boaters of slow-speed zones in the state's
waters, plus directing marine law enforcement officers
to step up enforcement to stop speeders.
There may be more action taken to protect the en-
dangered mammals after Bush meets with manatee
experts later this year.
As I've mentioned before, I can't think of a worse
way to end your day on the water than by hitting a
manatee. We've got a bunch of the slow-moving crit-
ters in our waters now please watch out for 'em.

Dolphin, too
Scientists off the coast of Scotland have deter-
mined that young dolphins tend to mimic the whistles
and chirps their parents' call, plus add their own varia-
tions to the sounds.
The researchers call the practice "vocal learning" and


Horseshoe winners
Winners in the Aug. 26 horseshoe games were
S Jack Cooper of Holmes Beach and John Bennett
of Jacksonville Beach. Runners-up were Roger
Kipp of Bradenton and Tom Skoloda of Anna
Maria. Winners in the Aug. 23 games were Coo-
per and Ron Pepka of Bradenton. Runners-up were
George Landraitis of Holmes Beach and Bill
Starrett of Anna Maria.
The weekly contests get under way at 9 a.m.
every Wednesday and Saturday at Anna Maria

say it's the first step taken in evolving a spoken language.
Apparently the scientists recorded more than 1,700
calls from dolphin moving along the coast and compared
the noise. They found that dolphins used the matching
sounds to address each other and identify themselves as
being a member of a specific pod. They also tweak the
squeaks to identify themselves as individuals.
Apparently the dolphin "language" is similar to
ancient humans, who would mimic each others' grunts.
As one researcher put it, "Bottlenose dolphins are
the only non-human mammals in which matching in-
teractions with learned signal types have been found."
Speaking of dolphins, our friend Randy Wells at
Mote Marine Laboratory has co-authored a new book
on the critters called "The Bottlenose Dolphin: Biology
and Conservation." It's published by University Press
of Florida and is in bookstores now. I'll pick up a copy
and let you know about it in a future column.

... something new
Forget Dick Tracy's wrist-radio now you can
buy a cellular coat.
Apparently Phillips NV, the big electronics com-
pany, has joined with Levi Strauss and Co. to market
an outdoor jacket with a built-in MP3 music player,
headset, remote control device and cellular phone.
The $900 jacket will be sold mostly in Europe in Sep-
tember. The cell phone is based on a system used there and
not in the United States, hence the overseas marketing.
The coat has a microphone in its collar, controls
on the sleeve and a speaker somewhere or other. Oh,
and it's waterproof.
There is also testing on a T-shirt with in-ear speak-
ers attached to it and another jacket that is solar-energy
powered and rechargeable to accommodate a micro-
phone and video camera.

marketing wizard said. "Electronics are getting smaller
and smaller. We hope to create a whole new market."
Apparently the fashion industry's involvement in
the process is in the styling. "The important thing was
to hang the wires the right way," a stylist said. "That's
an issue engineers don't usually think of but fashion
designers always think of."
I'll get more interested when they build a modem
that will fit in my flip-flops.

Cool it
This is one of those bone-head, simple, easy-to-do
things that we tend to forget in our more technological,
modern lifestyle.
Plant trees to stay cool.
Jane Morse with the Manatee County Cooperative
Extension Service said that by planting shade trees on
the east, south and west side of your house can reduce
temperatures 5 to 10 degrees on a summer day and re-
duce air-conditioning energy costs by 50 percent.
A woman in the Miami area had a slew of trees
around her house before Hurricane Andrew, and her
electric bill ran about $125 a month in the summer.
When the storm took out her trees, her power bill
jumped to about $400.
She started a "Cool Community" demonstration
project in her neighborhood, and everybody started to see
the benefits when the electric bills came. They also figured
that a $100 tree means a $500 increase in property value.
Morse says that urban areas in the country create
their own weather, and that cities are up to 8 degrees
warmer than the surrounding countryside.
"This Urban Heat Island Effect, and the extra ex-
pense of air conditioning, costs our nation up to $1
million per hour," Morse said.
"Florida's higher temperatures cause power plants
to burn more fossil fuel and release more greenhouse
gases into the air," she added. "Reducing air-condition-
ing demand saves you money and helps preserve
Florida's clean air and environment."
As always, the extension service has a plethora of
publications on this kind of stuff. Call 722-4524 for
more information.

New moon tides stir up biting redfish, snook'


By Capt. David Futch
Reports are coming in that redfish are finally get-
ting into a biting mode. With new moon tides through
Friday, it's a good time to go out on the outgoing tide,
when the reds and snook should tear up whatever you
throw at them.
Sam Knowles at Island Discount Tackle said red-
fish started heating up last week.
"There are a lot of mackerel around and quite a few
people tell me they've been catching permit," Knowles
said. "There will be some good tides through Friday
and fishing should be good on the hard outgoing tide.
Snook and redfish should bite. I've been hearing that
people are catching cobia cruising the beaches."
Neal Jackman at Annie's Bait & Tackle in Cortez
said Capt. Zach Zacharias on the Dee-Jay II led War-
ren Fienga of Bradenton Beach to a mixed bag of man-
grove snapper and a gag grouper in Longboat Pass. He
also boated numerous redfish from 19 to 25 inches and
finished the day with a 10-pound permit off Anna Maria.
Capt. Sam Kimball on the Legend said red grou-
per to 16 pounds and lane snapper are in 80 to 100 feet
of water. There also are 4- and 5-pound Spanish mack-
erel around for the taking and bonita. Permit to 10
pounds are off the beach.
Libby Goss at Perico Harbor Bait & Tackle said
redfish and snook are biting on the grass flats and near
mangroves.
Capt. Tom Chaya on Dolphin Dreams out of
Captain's Marina in Holmes Beach said he's had
some good runs on mackerel and little tunny.
"There are a few permit around," Chaya said. "It's
been either real hot or real cold on redfish. You either
bop 'em or you can't find them. In one trip we caught
two snook that were 35 inches each."
Capt. Curt Morrison and Capt. Ryan Hackney
on the Neva-Miss said the grouper fishing is good with
reds to 20 pounds, lane snapper to 2 pounds and yel-

pounds. The sharks have been biting on the night trips.
There are hammerheads, blacktip and sand sharks in
Tampa Bay, he said.
Bob Kilb at the Rod & Reel Pier in Anna Maria
said folks are catching mackerel, snapper, black drum,
redfish, permit and snook are going wild. "They're
tearing up anything you throw in the water."
Capt. Thom Smith at Angler's Repair on Cortez
Road said he's catching quite a few redfish in Joe Bay and
east of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. Perico Harbor is
producing some good catches of reds. This past week there
were tarpon and blacktip sharks off Rattlesnake Point.
Mangrove snapper are still doing well, Smith said.
Capt. Steve Salgado on the Compleat Angler
said there are mangrove snapper and plenty of floun-
der off the beach.
"We caught nine flounder, some of them to 20
inches. Redfish, mackerel and bonita are hitting and
there are tarpon around," Salgado said. "There are
snook on the outgoing tide around the passes. We had
one that was 33 inches. A little temperature change can
make a big difference in the snook"
Capt. Joe Webb on the Old Florida said he's
catching American red snapper to 20 pounds in 170
feet of water.
"We've been getting scamp to 12 pounds. They've
got these big old broom tails. Amberjack are there, but
those red snapper are really showing now and they're
big. We're catching them every time."
Capt. Matt Denham on the Rip Tide out of
Captain's Marina said he's fishing in 100 feet of
water and catching red grouper to 20 pounds. In 120
feet of water there are gags to 10 pounds and yellow-
tail and lane snapper.
Capt. Justin Moore on the Primadonna II said
he's targeting redfish and permit. "I'm starting to see
a lot of snook moving back into the bays."
