Back to square one in building official search


By Laurie Krosney
Islander Reporter
Anna Maria city officials and resi-
dents thought they had a new building
official starting work Sept. 5. It looked
like a done deal. Then rumors surfaced
about new-hire Tim English's resume.


There was some question about the
length of time he spent at his job as a
building official in Page County, Vir-
ginia.
English's resume lists his tenure in
that job from August 1999 to the
present. Questions arose when it ap-


peared English had not been signed on
in Page County after his 90-day proba-
tionary period.
Anna Maria Mayor Gary
Deffenbaugh said English has now de-
cided not to take the job for personal rea-
sons. Deffenbaugh said he understood that

Pigeon



problem



ends

By Paul Roat
The Bradenton Beach pigeon flap
has flown the coop.
Pardon the pun.
Members of the Bradenton Beach
code enforcement board have voted
unanimously to cease any further ac-
tion against Josephine Hodge. She was
cited by the city's code enforcement
officer after neighbors complained
about her feeding wild pigeons in the
backyard of her house in the 2300
block of Avenue C.
The birds and their byproducts
were causing a mess, neighbors said,
and the birds were a health hazard.
Hodge said she had stopped feed-
ing the pigeons last September. Neigh-
bors disagreed and complained to
Code Enforcement Officer Gerry
Rathvon, who cited Hodge for "har-
boring exotic wildlife."
Code enforcement board members
heard both sides of the argument last
month, then tabled the matter until last
week to see if the birds would find
other haunts.
Apparently, many of them did.
"I've been by there and there are
less birds than there were previously,"
Rathvon said. "There are none on the
yards and less on the wires."
Neighbor Barton Weeks agreed.
"There are less birds," he said, "and
the feeding of birds has stopped. It's a
good start."
"I've been by there too, and I have
not seen the problem that it was be-
fore," Code Enforcement Board Chair
Mollie Sandberg said.
Board member Jim Kissick moved
to "discontinue the pursuit of this and,
based on the facts, find there was no
violation of the ordinance.
Kissick added there "was no proof
she did attract them or un-attract
them." He added that the city commis-
sion should address the matter as a
problem that could impact the entire
city.

Anna Maria mayor apologizes to Island officials


By Laurie Krosney
Islander Reporter
Calling Commissioner Jay Hill's behavior "repre-
hensible," Anna Maria Mayor Gary Deffenbaugh has
apologized to officials from the other two Island cities.
Deffenbaugh sent letters to Mayor Carol Whitmore
and Commissioner Don Maloney of Holmes Beach and
Mayor Gail Cole and Police Lt. John Cosby of
Bradenton Beach apologizing for Hill's behavior at the
Aug. 24 Anna Maria commission meeting.
Deffenbaugh had invited the Bradenton Beach and
Holmes Beach officials to speak to the Anna Maria
commissioners about their cities' contracts with
Grubbs Emergency Services.


Official search continues
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
Deffenbaugh went on to say that he will do or say
nothing to damage the man's reputation.
Commissioner Doug Wolfe, who has been interview-
ing applicants for the building official position, said he
was sorry English was not coming. He added that he
thought he would have done a good job for the city.
Wolfe would neither affirm nor deny that there was
a problem with English's resume. He noted that if there
was a discrepancy, English had probably sent off his re-
sume without updating it.
Commissioner Jay Hill said that English was in-
volved in litigation with his former employer. Hill
said he didn't know the nature of the litigation, but
English's attorney had been in touch with him and
was to send a letter explaining things.
Hill said he thought the attorney probably
wouldn't send the letter in view of the fact English
had declined the job.
This leaves Anna Maria without a building official
again. The position has been vacant since the former
official, Phil Charlock, left in July to take a similar
position in South Pasadena, Fla.
Wolfe said the city will have to keep looking.
There was discussion at the commission's Aug. 24
meeting that the salary range offered was too low.
Wolfe said all the people he interviewed were asking
for more than $45,000. The city is offering between
$39,000 and $44,000.
The city will continue to advertise the position and
interview applicants.

Deffenbaugh Hill
Grubbs is a disaster cleanup company. If the Island
were to take a direct hit from a hurricane or undergo some
other disaster, Grubbs would send its employees and
equipment in to take over the cleanup of all municipal
property. They would clear the streets of debris, make an
assessment of damages, clean up city-owned buildings
and dispose of downed trees. This would free up city
employees to perform other vital services.
Holmes Beach, Longboat Key and Palmetto have
already signed with Grubbs at a cost of $100 for a five-
year contract. Bradenton Beach signed Grubbs to a $1
annual contract fee.
Cosby told Anna Maria commissioners that
Grubbs comes with the highest recommendations from
the Federal Emergency Management Agency. He noted
that it "is important to have contracts in place because
there is no time to negotiate after a disaster."
Cosby pointed out that FEMA pays Grubbs for the
cost of the cleanup after city approval.


Whitmore told commissioners that it doesn't make
sense for the Island cities to have contracts with different
companies. She said it would be cost-effective for all three
cities to go with the same company. "I feel our city is safe
now," she said. "We do not have enough of our own
people to clean up after a disaster." Whitmore went on to
say that Grubbs has the necessary experience and the ex-
pertise to do the job for all the Island cities.
Hill said he thought there were problems with the
idea, and he noted it was "nice for others to come and
tell us what to do," but he added, "we need to make
those decisions on ourown." He also said non-residents
should not be telling the Anna Maria City Commission
what to do.
Anna Maria commissioners agreed they would
sign with Grubbs after some minor changes are made
to the language in the contract.
Deffenbaugh thanked Cosby, Whitmore, Cole and
Maloney for taking their time to come to the meeting.
Later, he wrote an apology in which he offered "...
my sincere apologies for the completely disrespectful
and discourteous behavior of Commissioner Jay Hill."
The letter goes on to say that Hill was "out of line
for asserting that you and other guests had no right to
speak at the meeting, as you were not residents of the
City of Anna Maria."
Deffenbaugh thanked everyone for their appear-
ance at the meeting and offered assurances that Hill's
behavior was his own and in no way reflected the views
of others from the city.


Meeting Monday on Island charter school


"A charter middle school for community
children, by the community" will be discussed at
a meeting at 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 11, at the Is-
land Branch Library, 5701 Marina Drive,
Holmes Beach.
The movement has gathered momentum, say
Marlene West and Noranne Hutchinson, who are
spearheading the drive. They will explain details at
Monday's meeting.
Main speakers at the meeting will be Dr.
Kathy Wooley-Brown, coordinator for the
Florida State Charter School Resource Center at


the University of South Florida, and Lisa Arndt,
central and south Florida director for ABS
School Services.
West said that as public schools, charter
schools are tuition-free and testing standards are
the same as for other schools. The major differ-
ences are curriculum flexibility and smaller class
size, she said.
The group is still seeking a location on the Is-
land, for rent or free, with appropriate zoning, R3,
Cl or mixed use. Further information may be ob-
tained at 778-8366 or 778-8571.

Beach renourishment project set to begin


By David Futch
Islander Reporter
The Manatee County Board of Commissioners
amended an agreement with the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers that paves the way for beach
renourishment on Anna Maria Island to begin Janu-
ary 2001.
Commissioners were concerned because the
agreement calls for the county to pay for the $10
million project up front, then hope the federal gov-
ernment reimburses the county for a portion of its
investment.
The money is not budgeted for next year and
commissioners have to rely on Congress to put the
money in its 2002 budget.
The agreement allows the county to have local
control over the design and renouishment of a 4.7-
mile section from 14th Street South in Bradenton
Beach to 78th Street in Holmes Beach.
The Bradenton Beach-Holmes Beach section of
the original project was nourished from December
1992 to March 1993.
A small section of beach just over a half-mile
long in Anna Maria from Oak to Sycamore Avenue


also is part of the 2001 project.
County staff member Charlie Hunsicker told
commissioners that "Congress never fails to reim-
burse" for such projects.
The county levies a 3-cent tourist tax and 1 cent
of that tax is used to pay for beach renourishment.
The local share of the project is 50 percent, while
federal funds administered by the state pay for the
other half.
Commissioner Joe McClash voted against enter-
ing into the agreement with the Corps.
"When I was briefed about this project a year
ago, I didn't know we had to spend the money up
front and get reimbursed," McClash said. "I'm not
against beach renourishment, I just don't feel com-
fortable with this."
County Financial Management Department Di-
rector Jim Seuffert said it was not a matter of "if" the
county gets the money, it's a matter of when.
Seuffert added that the project is "time sensi-
tive" and commissioners needed to vote on the
agreement because the time for getting one of the
nourishment permits is passing and the project needs
to go out to bid.


Labor Day boating accidents call for Bayflites


A woman whose hand was tangled in an anchor
line lost two fingers and severed a third that later had
to be amputated.
The unidentified woman was flown by Bayflite
emergency helicopter to Tampa General Hospital fol-
lowing the Saturday mishap, said Manatee County
Public Safety Capt. Steve Gibson of Emergency Medi-
cal Services.
Another boating accident near Holmes Beach two
hours later required a second Bayflite rescue when a 2-
year-old girl with possible head injuries was picked up
by the helicopter ambulance behind Holmes Beach
City Hall.
According to public information officer Capt.
Ernie Cave of West Manatee Fire Rescue, the woman


with the injured hand was taken to Perico Harbor Ma-
rina and was picked up there by Bayflite around 3 p.m.
Her identity and condition are not known.
Gibson said the 53-year-old woman got her left
hand caught in an anchor line during a family outing on
a 25-foot boat. The line tore off two of the three middle
fingers. A third was later amputated.
In the accident two hours later, a Bradenton man
and his family were in a high-powered boat when he
either took a wave wrong or hit something near Marker
63 in the Intracoastal Waterway, according to a Holmes
Beach Police report.
The driver, Gordon Burgess, 36, of 7316 Manatee
Ave., was thrown from the boat while his wife suffered
a broken arm and the 2-year-old had a head injury, the

Holmes Beach residents question cause of fish kill


By Ann McGrath
Islander Reporter
It's been 20 years since residents of Clark Spring
Lake Estates have seen so many dead fish.
Red tide was the reason then, but residents are
puzzled about what caused fish to die in their lake last
week.
"They told us it was a 'non-breathing' problem,"
said resident Leon McDowell.
A representative of the Manatee County Environ-
mental Management Department told residents that the
fish died because decomposing algae took oxygen out
of the water.
Algae dies in dark or shaded areas, county officials
said. And it just so happens that the previous day was
cloudy and rainy, but residents insist that was not the
first cloudy day in the lake's history.
Although the fish kill situation has been explained
as a lack of oxygen in the lake, only one question re-
mains: Why did it suddenly happen overnight?
That question was answered by the Environmental
Management Department's Linda Shinneman.
"Lakes go through a natural cycle called 'eutrophi-
cation,' a kind of aging process," Shinneman said.
The cycle is activated by the amount of algae
growth, plant growth, and number of fish in the water,
she said, and may not occur for several years at a time.
Shinneman said it's normal to find dead fish for
two to three days in a row after the cycle starts.
Resident Marion Norris said Aug. 31 she became
concerned about the birds when she noticed they were
eating the fish.
"It's a good sign when birds eat the fish,"
Shinneman said, explaining that birds would not con-
tinue to eat contaminated fish.
Angela Dukeman of the Florida Marine Research
Institute said that no contaminants were found when
the water was tested Aug. 31.
Dick and Thelma Suman. lakeside residents for 30
years, said they collected 200 pounds of dead fish Aug.
30: four 18-20-pound drum; two 5-6-pound redfish,

It's a fishy situation
Residents of Clark Spring Lake Estates in Holmes Beach woke up Aug. 30 to find dead fish floating in the lake
adjoining their backyards. What's the cause of this "fish kill," and who's responsible for the cleanup? are
their questions. Islander Photo: Ann McGrath


and about 200 pin fish.
Who is responsible for the cleanup at Clark Spring
Lake?
"The residents." said Holmes Beach Mayor Carol
Whitmore. "because the lake is privately owned."
But several residents were concerned about how
they could dispose of so many pounds of "stinky" fish


without city assistance.
The first suggestion McDowell received from the
city, he said, was to bag the 100 pounds of fish he col-
lected Aug. 30, get a truck, and take them to the gar-
bage dump.

... while Bradenton Beach turtle problems flare


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Far from calming down after its eruption last
month, the Capri turtle crisis has deepened this week
with at least 36 more hatchlings killed on Gulf Drive.
Only emergency action by passersby, Bradenton
Beach police and Turtle Watch volunteers kept the
death toll down in the Sunday night incident, said Suzi
Fox, who holds the state marine turtle preservation
permit for Anna Maria Island.

Fish kill in Holmes Beach
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 4
However, that was not necessary.
Cindy Little of Waste Management told The Is-
lander that the fish will be collected curbside with the
regular trash if residents place them in garbage bags.
The bags should be filled to a maximum weight of 50
pounds each, and the residents should call Waste Man-
agement customer service at 753-7591 for a special
pick-up.
"Twenty years ago after red tide, the lake was cov-
ered with fish and it looked as though you could walk
on water," said Dick Suman. After he and his grandson
collected 900 pounds of fish, he said they ran into some
of the same concerns about disposal as residents had
last week.
Clark-Spring Lake, which lies between Clark
Road, Palm Drive, 68th Street, and Holmes Boulevard,
was formed when developers, drilling for freshwater,
struck a saltwater stream instead, Suman said.
The lake rises and falls with the tides, Suman said,
and according to an old story, the lake may have been
stocked by John Holmes Sr. when he returned home
from fishing with an excess to feed his family.
Suman said he regularly fishes the lake, and his
record catch was a 52-pound black grouper in 1974.
Duty Officer Ashley Welsh of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission said when indi-
viduals see a situation such as this one, they should call
the Florida Fish Kills Hotline at 1-800-636-0511.


Someone moved the protective cage from a nest
there, she said, and the hatchlings went through the
Capri property toward a bright street light across Gulf
Drive.
"People were picking them up and putting them in
somebody's cooler and the police got involved and
called me when things seemed out of hand. Most of the
hatchlings headed down Gulf Drive and the Circle K
parking lot.
"I picked up eight myself. We had to go through
the Capri's construction site to pick up the living and
dead ones. That site looks like a bomb blast, food con-
tainers, big scraps of heavy paper, broken tools, pieces
of rope we picked up hatchlings that were entangled
in that mess."
She contends that if the Capri renovation contrac-
tor, Steve Noriega's Spectrum Construction Co., hadn't
demolished a concrete wall paralleling the beach and
taken out Australian pine trees, the hatchlings would
have been shielded from the light and gone instead to
the Gulf of Mexico.
The light at Third Street South on Gulf Drive is
also a problem for Fox. She says she's worn out her
resources with Florida Power and Light when it comes
to shielding the lights or providing new turtle-friendly

Turtles hatch at night and instinctively go toward
the sparkle of the sea, but lights ashore can lure them
inland to their death.
Fox tried to stop the Capri construction project in
August when other hatchlings were crushed under traf-
fic after hatching from a nest seaward from the Capri,
but work has continued.
She blames the city of Bradenton Beach for this
latest flare-up, both for not making the law clear to
Noriega and for "putting up with his unsafe eyesore -
he's doing things we wouldn't put up with from neigh-
bors."
Fox feels Noriega is willing to follow the rules "but
nobody in city government is telling him what to do.
Officials ought to sit down with him and hash it out."
She tried to arrange a meeting between Noriega,
city and state officials and herself after the earlier in-
cident, but it apparently was too difficult to get that
many people with that many schedules in one place at
one time and the meeting never happened.
The toll Sunday night brought the total hatchling
deaths to 154 for this season, she said, 63 of them near
the Capri. Still, 6,998 live baby turtles have gotten to
the Gulf from Anna Maria Island so far.

Opinion


Hoppin' mad
You know what? It's the beginning of September.
Turtle nesting/hatching season began in May. The
lights at a dozen or more locations on Anna Maria Is-
land are killing sea turtles. -
What's wrong with this picture?
Anna Maria Island Turtle Watch volunteers and the
organization's permit holder Suzi Fox have every right
to be disgusted with this situation.
They did plenty of homework pre-season. Fox
spent time with the code enforcement officers in
Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach talking about the
problems they foresaw.
Last year Florida Power and Light experimented
with amber-tint fixtures and shielded all the rest. The
street lights weren't supposed to be a problem.
Fox met with Manatee County Parks and Recre-
ation Department personnel about shielding lights on
the buildings at the Coquina Beach facilities.
The Bradenton Beach code enforcement officer
began the turtle season by passing out packets of litera-
ture at beachfront properties and resorts. Several con-
dominium locations that had major problems in the past
changed their light fixtures in their under-building
parking areas to turtle-friendly lights.
It looked to be a promising season.
But AMITW presently has volunteers camped out
overnight in front of La Costa condos in Bradenton
Beach where management and the condo association
have refused to comply. A large number of bright lights
under the building in the parking area are a beacon for
the little hatchlings, which are expected to emerge
within the next few weeks.
As a matter of fact, Fox says there are still 90 nests
remaining unhatched, many in danger of meeting the
fate of the nest that crawled to its death on Gulf Drive
over the holiday weekend.
She's mad as heck at Bradenton Beach officials,
who had a chance to prevent the situation at the Capri
apartment renovation site at Third Street South on the
beach.
She asked to have the beach construction halted
and nothing was done. The contractor/owner removed
trees and a wall that shielded the beach and the
turtles from street lights. Fox says he should have
been required to halt work until turtle nests in that vi-
cinity hatched.
Now two nests of hatchlings have crawled out to
the road between the Capri buildings where previously
there was a barrier to prevent the tragedy.
Bradenton Beach's code enforcement officer,

Pedestrians need help
I would like to take this opportunity to remind all of
our residents and to inform all our visitors about the func-
tion of the pedestrian crosswalks on Anna Maria Island.
The crosswalks are marked by a striped zone painted
on the road and accompanied by a roadside sign. The func-
tion of these crosswalk zones is to allow a safe place for
people to cross the road while cars yield.
Too frequently I witness motorists driving
through the pedestrian zones while people are wait-
ing to cross, which in my opinion is not only danger-
ous, but pretty darn rude!
No matter where you are rushing to or from, I think
we all have time to let a fellow human cross the road
- especially when they have the legal right of way.
I would also like to see the police enforce the ex-
isting laws, especially in Holmes Beach. Please every-
one, take time to be a safe and friendly driver it can

City employees save day
I have written the following letter to the mayor of
Holmes Beach:
On July 24 the Island was flooded and I couldn't
reach the home of Mrs. C. Taylor in Anna Maria City.
I was to be her "care taker" as she just arrived home
from a rehabilitation nursing home.
Your two employees, gentlemen I know only as
Joe and Skip, drove me in the high van right to her
door. I was so relieved and happy to be with her at that
trying time.
I thank you sincerely for the care and concern your
employees showed me. They are to be commended.
I thank you all from my heart.
Jean Deacon, Bradenton


By Egan


Gerry Rathvon, says she can't fine property owners and
condos until the city comes into compliance with its
street lights.
Fox says Rathvon should cite the city and FP&L
for the street light problems and get on with enforce-
ment action against the other violators.
It may sound tough, but they've all had since the
beginning of turtle season in May or since turtle
season last year when most of the same problems per-
sisted to come into compliance with turtle laws.
We can't help but sympathize. Turtle Watch vol-
unteer numbers dwindle over the summer, Fox's
beeper resembles a 911 emergency center for a metro-
politan area, and the loggerheads they work so hard to
protect are a federally protected endangered species.
Call Fox at 778-5638 to voice your concerns or
offer to help. Call your city hall to protest the problem
conditions.
We can make a difference if we all pitch in.


Finally we have a voice
This week the Manatee County Board of Commis-
sioners voted a new appointment to the Tourist Devel-
opment Council an Islander.
Holmes Beach City Commissioner Sandy Haas-
Martens will pull up a chair when the tourism board
meets next and it's about time.
It's not clear whether the county commission in-
tended Haas-Martens to represent the three Island com-
munities, or Holmes Beach. It seems they might be
expecting her to represent the other cities, too, but how
can she cast a vote for Anna Maria and Bradenton
Beach without direction from their commissions?
What sort of issues will the TDC look at? For start-
ers, beach nourishment funding. We asked Commis-
sioner Stan Stephens to also look into funding improve-
ments for the public beach facilities and parking areas.
Besides funding advertising to bring more and
more tourists to the beaches, wouldn't that be nice?

Beach water testing under way, everything fine


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
With alarming developments in recreational waters
to the south, tests here are reassuringly positive with
one brief scare.
Bacteria found off the beaches of Casey Key and
the Venice North Jetty had the Sarasota County Health
Department advising would-be swimmers to steer clear
of those spots.
And the very popular children's bathing fountain
on Sarasota's Island Park has been closed for the year
because six children who played in the fountain were
diagnosed with what can be a deadly stomach illness.
The illness, cryptosporidiosis, killed 100 in Milwaukee
seven years ago.
The beach warnings were caused by incidences of
enterococcus bacteria, not harmful itself but Sarasota


County officials feared it could make swimmers sus-
ceptible to gastrointestinal illnesses. Subsequent tests
came up favorable and the swimming ban was re-
scinded in time for the Labor Day holiday.
Kathy Kimes, engineer with Manatee County En-
vironmental Health Services and in charge of the test-
ing program here, said the only potentially worrisome
problem was found off Palma Sola Causeway and that
didn't last long.
A higher reading of the bacteria than federal stan-
dards deem safe was found during a regular sampling
in Manatee County's new testing program, but custom-
ary resamplings found the water safe, said Kimes.
"The alarm came from a sampling right after a
heavy rain and during construction work on the cause-
way," she said. "The bacteria had dispersed in the
resampling."


The local testing program started July 1, whereas
Sarasota County has been testing swimming waters for
30 years. Manatee and the state's other coastal coun-
ties began getting money from the state on July 1 un-
der the Healthy Beach Program set up by the 2000 ses-
sion of the Florida Legislature.
Health workers wade out as far as they can and
collect water samples to be tested by Benchmark Labo-
ratory in Palmetto. They are checked for fecal coliform
and the enterococcus bacteria. Also recorded are data
on air and water temperatures, tide conditions and cur-
rents.
Every other week the program tests waters off
Longboat Key's Whitney Beach, Bradenton Beach,
and two locations each off Coquina Beach, Manatee
County Public Beach and Anna Maria City beach and
Palma Sola Causeway.


Privateers festival will help 'Float the Boat'


Anna Maria Island Privateers are about to
abandon ship and set sail on a brand new craft
which they will build themselves.
The old float, from which the Privateers have
entertained tens of thousands at parades and other
events, can't cut the mustard any more, explained
Privateers Treasurer Stan Weyman.
"It's built on an old military caisson," he ex-
plained, "and it can't back up and is really difficult
on turns. We've been repainting and repairing and
otherwise working on it three or four times a year,
and it's getting beyond help."
So a new craft is in order, and to help pay for
it the nonprofit group is hosting 10 hours of fun and
food at a "Float the Boat" festival at the Manatee
County Fairgrounds in Palmetto.
The event will run from noon until 10 p.m. Sat-


urday, Sept. 9, at the Auto Way Ford Arena. Admission
is free and a $1 parking fee will go to Palmetto young-
sters, Weyman said.
On the program are live music, a wide variety of
food, the Bud Girl 2000 contest judging, "bar war
Olympics," celebrity dunk tank, craft booths, hot air
balloon rides, rock wall climb and many other attrac-
tions.
Weyman said the Privateers expected to inherit, for
a price, the old float from Bradenton's Conquistadors.
But that organization instead sold it to an organization
in Tampa, so the Privateers have to replace the leaky
vessel with a new one.
They will build it themselves, probably on an old
school bus chassis after they cut the bus off. Several
Privateers are skilled in the crafts needed for such an
undertaking, Weyman said. It's just as well the


Conquistadors reportedly paid $300,000 for their
new float, but the Privateers feel they can build a
new one for $15,000 to $20,000.
When they have that launched, they will sell
the old float to a local group that doesn't need one
that travels much farther than a parade route. The
Privateers have driven the float up and down the
coast for events in the past.
It only travels 35 to 40 miles an hour maxi-
mum, Weyman said, and "last year the tires wore
out and we couldn't find replacements, they are
900 by 20 military tire. We finally found some in
Kansas and they cost $300; we can't be doing that
very often."
They've had the current boat/float since 1982,
when they acquired it from the Conquistadors,
who'd had it since 1968.

Anna Maria P&Z Board at odds with commission


By Laurie Krosney
Islander Reporter
Saying the Anna Maria City Commission has "ren-
dered ineffective" the decisions made by its Planning
and Zoning Board, Dennis Hendrickson resigned as a
member of the board.
Hendrickson went on to say that he joined the
board in the hope of serving his community. He said he
had no interest in "making enemies of any business
owner or resident of Anna Maria."
Hendrickson said, "I just felt I had to make a point.
The Anna Maria commission has recently overturned
every decision we made."
The latest such action came when the commission
voted against the recommendation of the P&Z Board
and granted a variance to Waterfront Restaurant owner
Steve Barnes at its Aug. 24 meeting. The commission.
allowed the restaurant to put what Commissioner Doug
Wolfe called a "nonconforming awning over a noncon-
forming deck."
Wolfe and Commissioner Tom Skoloda opposed
the awning variance.
In resigning, Hendrickson said he hoped that the
commissioners would understand that their actions
were causing anger on the part of people who had been
denied variances. He said those people see the actions
of the P&Z Board and the commission as discrimina-
tory and unfair.
"We need to be consistent and careful with our
codes so we maintain certain standards of density and
property use in Anna Maria," Hendrickson said. He

The Anna Maria Planning and Zoning Board took
no action on a request to change two Pine Avenue
Gulffront lots.
Board members heard from Reynold Glanz on his
plan to reconfigure and rezone his property at 101 Pine
Avenue. Glanz and former wife Ramona want to
change the configuration of the lots to create two
beachfront residences. The land in question currently
has a house on it and is used as rental property.
It has been zoned commercial since the 1970s and


added that he hopes commissioners will look at their
zoning decisions in light of the city ordinances.
On a similar note, P&Z Chairman Doug Copeland
sent a memo to Mayor Gary Deffenbaugh requesting a
joint workshop "to discuss the criteria for variances."

Boat slip owner facing fine


By Ann McGrath
Islander Reporter
The owner of a boat slip in Holmes Beach will be
fined $100 per day if a sunken sailboat is not removed
by Sept. 15.
Code Enforcement Officer Walter Wunderlich first
notified property owner William Carola of the code
violation April 26, then again on May 19. In May,
Carola told Wunderlich that the boat's owner, Rachael
Barber, was renting the slip from him.
Carola lives in the 2400 block of Avenue B and the
boat is stored in the canal across the street from his
home.
Barber was contacted June 14, July 6, and July 13
about the code violation, but the 24- to 25-foot sailboat
remained sunk in the canal at the end of July,
Wunderlich said.
Barber spoke to the Code Enforcement Board at its
Aug. 31 meeting, saying the boat had not been raised
due to a lack of funds.

Lot split
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8
would be smaller than the 75 by 100 foot size required
for residential property. Access would be a problem.
And, there are problems with an easement.
Glanz said he thought it made his property more
saleable if he could change the two lots, which now
face Pine Avenue, into two beachfront lots. He also
said he thought it would be better for the city if the
property remained residential rather than commercial.
If the existing structure is torn down, the property
would remain commercial unless there is a zoning
change. P&Z Chair Doug Copeland said he might
agree that a residential use was better for the city, but
the lots would still be substandard. He added that if
Glanz wanted to split the lots and use them for residen-
tial property, Glanz would have to go through an en-
tirely different process to be allowed to do that.
Anthony Manali, who owns property east of Glanz,
is opposed to the split. He said that the Sandbar deck
is already encroaching on the property in question.
P&Z member Charles Caniff wondered aloud
when that encroachment might have happened.
Glanz said if he didn't get the zoning he wants, he
would continue talks with Ed Chiles, owner of the
Sandbar, about selling the property to him.
The matter was continued to the board's Sept. 25
meeting.

"I'm asking that you not hold Mr. Carola respon-
sible," she said. "I'm willing to take responsibility."
Her business, Barber said, is 80 percent dependent
on winter visitors. Barber operates a massage therapy
business in Holmes Beach.
Carola was reported to be out of town and did not
attend the meeting.
"The $400 it will cost to have the boat raised by a
professional may as well be $40,000 to me in the sum-
mertime," Barber said.
She was unsuccessful in trying to raise it herself by
pumping it out at low tide, she said, because the boat
had taken on too much rainwater and the pump she
used was not strong enough.
"I've learned a lesson from this boat," Barber said,
explaining how she bought it four years ago for a price
of $2,000, only to learn later it did not have clear title.
Barber told the board that she has made arrange-
ments with a professional to raise the boat on the date
of the next lowest tide.
Barber told the board she pays $100 per month to
store the boat at Carola's slip.
"Mr. Carola is collecting money for a nuisance,"
said board chairman Chuck Stealey.
"We are bending over backwards here," said board
member Joan Perry during board discussion.
The board voted to allow Barber until Sept. 15 to
remove the boat before fining property owner Carola
$100 a day.

Does anyone know what time it is?
Four clock faces, four different times. That's the
problem with the Bradenton Beach clock tower on
Bridge Street, which provides different times depend-
ing on which face you face none of them accurate,
either. The tower was struck by lightning earlier this
summer and the city has been waiting to get crews
back to repair the fried circuitry. The matter will be
discussed at Thursday's regular city commission

Get your red-hot sea dogs


By David Futch
Islander Reporter
Leo Anderson is a sea dog and likes it that way.
A love of water led Anderson to start a hot dog
stand on the water and he hopes it catches on some-
where in Florida.
Right now Anderson is working the Manatee
County coastline, but he says he'll go elsewhere if he's
not welcome.
Anderson's new venture is called Sea Dog Empo-
rium and is a fully-equipped food stand on a 22-foot
pontoon boat.
There's a hot dog steamer built by the All-Ameri-
can Hot Dog Manufacturing Company of Miami, a
char-broil grill and coolers filled with sodas and water.
The equipment complies with the Florida Division of
Hotels and Restaurants regulations.
"I can go to Egmont Key or south to Cayo Costa
near.Boca Grande and no one raises a fuss about it,"
Anderson said. "I'm looking to serve people who are
in the middle of nowhere and would have to drive or
boat 10 miles to a store."
Anderson said he plans on serving steamed hot
dogs. knockwurst and grilled kielbasa, Polish and Ital-
ian sausage sandwiches.
The problem he's had is trying to convince Island
cities to let him pull his craft on area beaches to serve
people. Island city officials say they don't want him to
run his hot dog/landing craft on shore.
One Island city told him he'll have to get an occu-
pational license to operate.
"I'd love to get an occupational license but the cit-
ies don't seem eager," Anderson said. "City ordinances
have to do with land-based operations and this is a gray
area in terms of a marine-based vendor. Most city au-
thority ends where water meets land.
"But I cannot and will not antagonize the coastal

cities. I have no intention of thumbing my nose at the
powers that be. If it doesn't work here in Manatee
County, I'll go to Fort Myers or the east coast. Brevard
County already said they would roll out the red carpet
for me. There are a lot of barren beaches around and
I'm sure a lot of people on those beaches would appre-
ciate something cold to drink."
Prior to the busy Labor Day weekend, Anderson
said he was ready to roll.
His plans included anchoring Saturday off Beer
Can Island on the south side of Longboat Pass. Then on
Sunday he was at Egmont and Passage keys on the
north end of Anna Maria Island. On Monday, he went
to the spot that was the busiest.
But Anderson said he didn't "zoom up to the
beaches."
Ordering a hot dog and soda from Sea Dog is easy.
You just have to have a marine VHF-FM radio and call
him on channel 80 or you can reach him on his cell
phone at (941) 340-0025. Tell him what you want and
he'll have his assistant deliver it on a personal water-
craft wherever you are.
Bradenton Beach Mayor Gail Cole said if Anderson
provides a first-class operation, he doesn't see why he
can't pull up on the beach and sell red hots and sodas.
"If it's done right and we don't get trash on the
beach, then this isn't a bad idea. But I want to see some
responsibility," Cole said. "If he lands on shore and
serves people on shore, he may need an occupational
license. But I don't believe in Draconian laws that pre-
vent people from doing anything at all. I don't under-
stand why people can't pull a boat on shore."
Anna Maria city officials can tell you why. The
northernmost Island city doesn't allow anyone to nudge
the beach with a boat except for a 200-foot section at
Bayfront Park that runs from the Lake LaVista chan-
nel north to the park.

Islander football contest
makes for tricky picking
I just wanted to see if football fanatics could make
good choices when I threw a couple of college games
into The Islander's football contest mix.
The two feature college games in the first week of
the contest got people's attention. The college game is
so fickle, with momentum turning on a dime. It's what
makes the college game better than the professional
one.
Fans saw a good Notre Dame team upsetting No.
25-ranked Texas A&M followed by UCLA's thrashing
of No. 3 Alabama. I was going to pick the Toledo vs.
Penn State game but I thought even that's a reach.
Each week I'll be throwing in from zero to five
college games along with the 10 to 15 pro teams. The
college games I choose are ones I think could go either
way, or if there's a chance for an upset, or if FSU or
Miami or UF plays, then they'll get the nod unless it
looks like they'll kill the team they'll be going up
against.
This week's college games are No. 2 FSU at
unranked Georgia Tech, a team that historically gives
the Seminoles fits, and No. 4 Miami at No. 15 Wash-
ington, a team that's dangerous when they play at
home.
So each week you can expect battles to think about
when you're picking.
The gauntlet has been thrown down. Take heed.
The common occurrence of perfect scores each week
during last year's contest is over. There'll be a little
more homework to do this year.

would retain their seats and people in the audience
could vote on others they would like on the board.

Bystrom said they were not, that the top nine
vote getters were taken last year.
Alan Bobo made a motion to nominate people
one at a time and Miller seconded the motion.
McDonough said the board and audience should
find out how many people wanted to run and then
decide how many members should be on the board.
In addition to the five past board members, nine
people said they would like to run for a total of 14.
Gibbons reminded people that being on the
board takes time and commitment. During the first
month of the season, there is a meeting once a week
and then once a month after that for the entire year.
DeBellevue, who was on last year's board but
quit, said that wasn't necessarily so.
"I found consistent meetings just not there," he
said. "It was frustrating."

rarely will the board members be at the meetings."
The vote was nearly unanimous to create an
11-member board out of the top vote getters of the
14.
When it came down to the 11th person, there was
a tie, so both were included to make it a 12-person
board.
So it goes in hometown Little League. The people
have spoken.
Bordes said the new board expects to first get its
finances in order, then make amends with the Anna
Maria Island Community Center board that felt alien-
ated the past two years and separated itself from Little
League as a result.
"Our board is going to meet with the Center board
soon," Bordes said. "Both boards need to work together
to make Little League work for the children."

Lease beats large field
for golf win
Tim Lease punished Palma Sola Golf Club by
shooting a sizzling score and beating out one of the
largest fields ever for a Sunday Sunrise tournament.
Lease was plus 10 on a modified-Stableford
scoring system where birdies are worth four points,
pars are good for two and bogeys get you one.
The home course brought out 35 players for the
early-morning contest.
Allan Ackles was plus nine and came in second,
while Bruce Fournier and Russell Richards were
third at plus seven.
Rick Morash stole some of Lease's thunder
when he took the first "Back Six" contest. The
player first has to reach one-third of his scoring av-
erage before he can score in the plus column.
Closest-to-the-pin greenies were won by
Richards, Capt. Glenn Corder, Bruce Fournier and
myself.
Skins went to Ackles with two, Rich Averill,
Keith Bernard, Morash and Richards with one each.
Next week's match moves to Imperial Lakewoods.

listened to a Scouting
presentation inside in the

Cub Scouts Round Up informs


parents, boys about scouting


Anna Maria Elementary School Cub Scouts are gear-
ing up for a new year of fun and learning. Cub Scouting
offers boys in grades one through five an opportunity to
develop friendship, fellowship and self-esteem through
games, activities and learning new skills.
This year a number of group activities are already
planned for both the cubs and their parents.
Oneof the largest activities held is an overnight camp
out at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg. This is a family
event that draws scouts from all Manatee County troops.
After watching a baseball game, families are able to roll
out sleeping bags on the field and watch movies on the
field's big screen. The deadline to register for this popu-
lar event is approaching fast Sept. 8.
Another popular event is the Cub Scout breakfast
and hike, which will be held Saturday, Sept. 16, from
8-10 a.m. at G.T. Bray Park, Bradenton. The hike is
designed to help cubs earn their first patch, and plenty
of good hiking food will be offered for breakfast.
In November cubs can look forward to "There's

Weekly scout meetings will start within the next two
weeks. Fourth and fifth grade Webelos will meet on
Wednesday at 2:45 p.m. at Anna Maria Elementary
School beginning Sept. 6. The third grade Bear Cub and
second grade Wolf Cub meetings have not been set yet.
First grade Tiger Cubs will meet for an outing and

meetings based on the scouting guidebook.
Adult volunteers are always needed to help make

Chamber of commerce nightmare, Panhandle style


Except for the biting dog flies, jellyfish, stin-
grays, shark attacks and toxic chemicals in the wa-
ter, the beach is fine. Y'all come down.
That was the summation of a pre-Labor Day
weekend article in a Tallahassee newspaper I spot-
ted while in the Panhandle last week. Can't you just
envision the chamber of commerce representatives
marching into the newsroom with torches, pitchforks
and nooses to string up the poor reporter who penned
the article?
Seems there's been a bunch of problems with
beaches in North Florida of late. Dog flies have been
a real nuisance. For those of you fortunate enough to
have been able to avoid the pests, they're big flies
that don't just bite but instead take a little divot out
of anything they land on, then happily fly away
while chewing the hunk of flesh they removed, leav-
ing behind a nasty bleeding sore.
Jellyfish and stingrays are swarming close to
shore up there, too. We all know what kind of prob-
lems they cause.
Of course you read about the man who was
killed by a shark while swimming a few strokes from
his bayfront dock in Boca Ciega Bay last week.
And high concentrations of fecal coliform from
sewage treatment or non-treatment plants
prompted health department officials to close
beaches in Taylor County, near Perry. There was
even a beach closure for a while just south of us in
Venice last week, the result of the same problem.
Fortunately, Island beaches were spared the
problems facing other coastal communities hoping
to reap the financial windfall the last summer holi-
day weekend brings.

In the dark again
I like caves. Maybe it has something to do with
my being in the dark about Island political antics, or
all those years spent in a darkroom when photogra-
phy paid the rent, but I've always liked poking
around in dark, damp places.

Snook season starts, plenty of them in bays


By Capt. David Futch
This is the time of year that makes snook fishermen
happy. The season opened Sept. 1 and folks lucky
enough to get one can enjoy some of the finest-tasting
fish imaginable. There's a lot of bait around so there's
no excuse for not catching dinner.
Snook season runs through Dec. 14. Fishermen can
now possess two snook per day, per person. The snook
have to be a minimum of 26 inches and a maximum of
34 inches in length.
Neal Jackman at Annie's Bait & Tackle in
Cortez reporting for Capt. Zach Zacharias on the
Dee-Jay II said redfishing is rated very good.
"Zach said the reds are of average size. Mangrove
snapper continue their strong run and there are big
Spanish mackerel in the Gulf along with bonita,"
Jackman said. "The occasional permit and tarpon will
bite. Snook prospects look good for fall with a lot of
fish moving back into the bay."
Capt. Sam Kimball on the Legend out of Annie's
said he's catching plenty of mackerel to five pounds on
small shiners on the reefs. Red grouper still remains the
best bet offshore and they go to 15 pounds. Mangrove
snapper, barracuda to 30 pounds and small cobia are
biting well along with the occasional permit.
Capt. Matt Bowers on The Outcast at Captain's
Marina in Holmes Beach, said the grouper action is
the best offshore bet though he said mackerel are strik-
ing at bait everywhere.
Capt. Joe Webb aboard the Old Florida out of

"There are plenty of fish on the beach. Using a pair
of polarized sunglasses, you can seem them in the
trough right off the beach's edge either at sunrise or
sunset," Lowman said. "The fish are starting to come
back inside now. That whole stretch of shoreline from
the Rod & Reel Pier toward Bean Point is loaded with
snook. Bait is getting better each week.
"There are lot of reds around. They're schooled up
but the schools are scattered. If you find a school, you
can fish there for days because they'll stay right where
you found them. In the morning on the high tides along
the mangroves has been good.
"It's snapper time now on any structure the
Sunshine Skyway Bridge, the reefs, any docks near
deeper water like the pilot dock at Egmont Key. Day
or night you can constantly catch them. Mackerel fish-
ing is great right off the beach and they're big."
R.C. Goss at Perico Harbor Bait & Tackle said
anglers have been catching reds in the potholes south
of the Manatee Avenue bridge to the Island. Trout and
mackerel are plentiful. A few snook were caught
around the passes and along the mangroves.
Bob Kilb at the Rod & Reel Pier in Anna Maria
said the fishing is good. Mackerel, snapper, snook, red-
fish, drum and permit are biting.
"There were a lot of people out here at midnight
when snook season opened and there's plenty of snook
around," Kilb said. "Permit are still hanging in there.
I caught two nice permit Thursday and someone else
caught one."
Capt. Matt Denham on the Rip Tide out of
Captain's Marina said red grouper to 15 pounds are
biting 20 to 30 miles out.
"We went out 40 miles and Rodney Shirley caught
two American red snapper that weighed about 10
pounds each," Denham said. "There are lot of man-

state park.
The Civilian Conservation Corps hacked
through the limestone to make paths and cleared out
some of the caverns for easier public access a few
years later.
As caves go, I guess Florida Caverns is one. It's
not very big, only about 60 feet beneath the surface
at its deepest, and the tour is about a quarter-mile
long. It's also not as colorful as some caves I've
seen, but there are the obligatory stalactites and sta-
lagmites and the occasional drip of water and flut-
ter of a bat.
And with a 68-degree temperature, it sure beat
the North Florida heat.
The park also has canoe rentals to tour the
Chipola River, a sinkhole with some of the bluest
water I've seen short of the deep Gulf of Mexico.
There's also gopher tortoises and deer and probably
lots of other wildlife which I missed.
Will I go back? Probably not. Was it worth go-
ing? Sure.

Politics on
the airwaves
One last note on North Florida: Politics. If you
think we've got a visual pollution problem with
campaign yard signs, you ain't seen nothing' until you
see what they do up north.
The record was about 50 yard signs on one cor-
ner, hyping everybody from county commissioner to
state senator. Every conceivable use of the Ameri-
can flag was in place on the signs, and every shade
of red and blue imaginable highlighted the candi-
dates' names.
But what I loved was all the political ads on the
radio. Radio has never been a big market locally for

elections, but in the capital city area it's a huge sell-
ing point, and every candidate has spent what must
be an enormous amount of campaign cash to put
their name and qualifications out over the airwaves.
Campaign Strategy 101 dictates that you run
happy get-your-name-before-the-voter ads for a
while, then switch to negative, attack ads against
your opponent for a few days before going back to
the Mom, Apple Pie and Truth and Justice For All
ads just before the election. I caught the negative and
the beginning of the positive ads. It was great.
One guy brought out the big guns against his op-
ponent. She's a "carpetbagger," having moved into
the district just before she qualified for office. She's
supported by the evil trial lawyers. She's taken
money from special interests. She won't look out for
you, the Average Working Man.
Another guy had switched to the positive. As
near as I can remember, he is:
For lower taxes.
Against reducing government servic-
For stopping crime.
Against expanding law enforcement budgets.
For halting growth of big government.
Against elimination of state jobs.
For the environment.
Against pollution.
For good growth.
Against bad growth.
He did stop short of saying how much he loved
his mother, and yours, too that and how much he

liked apple pie were about the only things he didn't
tell me, come to think of it.
But I had to come back to Manatee County to see
the best political ad of all.
Earnest Williams is running for the Florida
House of Representatives in District 55, which is a
dog-leg kind of district that starts in St. Petersburg,
goes through Palmetto and ends up in central
Bradenton.
Mr. Williams print advertisement in a local Sun-
day newspaper (and I'm not making this up) states
he is "A devoted family man. Active in the commu-
nity. Enjoys a good fish sandwich."
And he says, "People do not care how much you
know until they know how much you care."
Except for the circuitous logic in that last sen-
tence, he's my kind of guy. When's the fish fry?

Sandscript factoid
Sharks have had almost no evolutionary adapta-
tions for the past 100 million years. In their average 25-
year life span, they will lose and replace about 30,000
teeth. And their rough skin, with its sandpaper-like
consistency, is made up of tiny teeth called dermal
denticles that help reduce drag as they swim. The der-
mal denticles are so effective that some swimmers are
wearing full body suits made up of a similar material
to improve their racing speed in the water.
