Cities may work together to start skate park


By Diana Bogan
Islander Reporter
Anna Maria Vice Mayor Tom Skoloda and Holmes
Beach Police Lt. Dale Stephenson addressed Holmes
Beach city commissioners at a work session recently to
discuss options for creating a skateboard park.
Potential sites for the park include the parking lot
between the First Union Bank and the former Eckerd
building and the old basketball court near the new base-


ball field, both in Holmes Beach.
Stephenson asked commissioners to consider put-
ting the park on city property. "I spent most of my time
on the basketball courts as a kid. We could put a mi-
cro-skate park and basketball court near the bathrooms
by the baseball field."
Commissioners' main concern about the park fo-
cused on liability. Stephenson told the board that his
research showed that soccer, basketball and baseball


More mullet, more of the time
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission may revise the ban on fishing for black and striped
mullet. The proposal to give castnet fishermen 16 more hours of mullet fishing on weekends will be explored
at a public workshop June 28 in St. Petersburg. This mullet image was a winner for Mark Bradow last year in
The Islander's annual photo contest which kicks off again in two weeks. See MORE on both inside ...


McKay to head public works,

building departments in Anna Maria


By Laurie Krosney
Islander Reporter
The City of Anna Maria has a new building offi-
cial and a new public works director. The positions
have been combined and will be filled by former City
Commissioner George McKay.
McKay was given the nod at the June 14 city com-
mission meeting. The vote was unanimous to hire
McKay to fill both jobs at an annual salary of $44,800.
No official start date has been set, but McKay said
he'd formally come on board sometime in the next two
weeks. He asked for time to wind down some of his
business as a private contractor.
Mayor Gary Deffenbaugh told commissioners the
state has informed him that McKay would be granted
a provisional license as a building official based on his
many years' experience as a contractor and an unblem-
ished record. McKay will then have three years to com-


plete the requirements for permanent licensure as a
building official.
Former City Commissioner Bob Barlow proposed
that the city explore the possibility of contracting with
a firm in the private sector for inspection services as a
cost-cutting measure.
McKay said he concurred, and although he had no
experience with outsourcing inspection, he was aware
that it was considered "the way to go" by many cities
as they downsize and institute cost-saving methods of
doing business.
During the discussion of McKay's hiring, Commis-
sioner Jay Hill conducted a rapid-fire interview of McKay
about the interview process he underwent with the mayor
and former city Building Official Bob Welch.
"To the best of your recollection, Mr. McKay,"

have higher injury rates that skating.
Skoloda distributed information explaining how
other cities have handled liability for their skate parks
and told commissioners that there are several individu-
als who are willing to donate considerable funds to see
this project through.
"I want a commitment from the other two cities to
share the cost and liability first," said Holmes Beach
Mayor Carol Whitmore, "then we'll do it on our land."


Tidemark resort


unanimously


approved
By Diana Bogan
Islander Reporter
Flower power filled the seats of Holmes Beach
City Hall as supporters of the Tidemark project pinned
white daisies to their lapels.
More than 80 people crowded into city hall for the
first reading of the ordinances pertaining to developer
Nick Easterling's proposal.
Flower or no flower, the city listened to presenta-
tions given by those for and against the proposed ma-
rina/lodge/condo project before voting 5-0 in favor of
the development.
The zoning and land-use ordinances must still go
through a second reading, which will take place in July.
Approval of the project would grant the develop-
ment a change in zoning for two residential properties,
from R- 1, single-family residence, to C-3, commercial,
and amend the land-use map.
Easterling plans to build a lodge with nine hotel
rooms, 31 rental condominium units and a 120-seat
restaurant and lounge on the former Pete Reynard's
restaurant property. Throughout deliberations,
Easterling maintained that the project would not be
economically viable without the rezoning of the adja-
cent residential lots.
Chairman Roger Lutz reasoned that no one would
want to build a single-family home next to the existing
commercial property.
Resident Lance Spotts put the chairman's com-
ments into perspective. Spotts' residence abuts the two
residential lots at the end of Sunrise Lane that the de-
veloper wants to include in his project.

Turtle nests grow, lights diminish, tents, chairs accumulate


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
After a discouragingly slow start, mother turtles
came ashore by the platoon and put the season's nest
rate even with last year's.
As of early in the week there were 72 sea turtle
nests on Anna Maria Island's beaches plus 48 false
crawls, tracks left by mother turtles that changed their
minds about nesting and lumbered back into the Gulf.
Suzi Fox, who holds the state marine turtle preser-
vation permit for the Island, said 35 nests are in
Bradenton Beach, 18 in Holmes Beach, 19 in Anna
Maria City.
She tried to save a sick turtle's life one night, but
it didn't work out. Boaters found the loggerhead float-
ing off Longboat Key's Beer Can Island and called her,
she recalled. She told them to bring it ashore, where she
took over. It weighed about 60 pounds, instead of the
usual 300.
Unable to take it to Mote Marine Laboratory for
treatment in the middle of the night, and not wanting
it to smell up her kitchen, she drove to Wal-Mart,
bought a kiddie pool, filled it with sea water and put it
and the turtle in her garage.
It died before dawn, and, pending a necropsy by
Mote's veterinarian, Fox suspects the cause of death as
the unidentified disease that this year has killed hun-
dreds of sea turtles in the Florida Keys. Altogether
there have been 739 strandings in the state, 70 percent
more than the 10-year average, she said. ,
The beach light situation has improved markedly,
she said. Fewer lights are visible from the beach, giv-
ing turtle hatchlings a better chance to survive. They in-
stinctively head for the sparkle of the Gulf, but inshore
lights attract them to their death.
After a shocking shore tour of Bradenton Beach
two weeks ago, when she and fellow Turtle Watch
volunteers found many violations of the "lights out"
laws, beach businesses and residents are attempting to
meet requirements.
Fox, Bradenton Beach Mayor Gail Cole, new
Building Official Bob Welch, and Becky Shannon of
the Beach House restaurant worked late one night on

Sad but true turtle story
Good Samaritans called turtle savior Suzi Fox, head of Anna Maria's Turtle Watch, in the hopes this juvenile
loggerhead, found floating near Beer Can Island, would pull through. The turtle didn't make it through the
night, but Mote Marine Laboratory hopes a necropsy will reveal some insight into the cause of its death.

the restaurant's offending lights, with excellent results,
Fox said.
"We got down and practically put our noses on the
sand to get a turtle's-eye view, even Becky in her good
clothing," Fox said. "We readjusted some lights and
dimmed the new fish sign and it looks like it's going
to work out fine."
She added that she can't understand why some


people don't just get some bubble wrap from her and
use it to cut off light from the beach "shielding is
easy and fast and it's working. Bradenton Beach has a
roll of wrap available at city hall, too. Just use it!"
Fox reported Tuesday morning that tents, chairs
and overnight campers on the beach are proliferating
- her next focus in the quest to make Anna Maria
Island's beaches safe for turtle nesting.

tured on the cover of The Islander, and one snapshot
will be a grand prize winner with prizes and gift cer-
tificates awarded by the newspaper and local mer-

looking for a picture that captures a 'special moment,'"
said contest judge and Islander news editor Paul Roat.
Judging begins by a selection of pictures that may
include abstract photos, still life pictures, landscapes
and scenics. candid unposed snapshots, action, humor

workshops starting Thursday, June 28, in St. Petersburg.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion has a draft rule which would revise the ban on fish-
ing for black and striped mullet, said Bob Palmer of the
commission's staff in Tallahassee. Silver mullet are not af-
fected, he said, noting that this is a bait fish and not nearly
as valuable a resource as the black and striped.
The restriction originally prohibited taking mullet
from noon Friday to noon Monday, July 1 through Janu-
ary, and all during Christmas week, he said. Subsequently
it was changed to ban fishing from 4 p.m. Friday to 8 a.m.
Monday, which is the current limitation.
The proposed new rule would reduce the time of
the prohibition to 12:01 a.m. Saturday to 12:01 a.m.
'; Monday. It would drop the Christmas week prohibition
aItdiilimit fishers-to 50 fish per boat.
The proposed relaxing of restrictions comes after
.the commission was advised in January that mullet
stocks have rebounded dramatically in the Gulf start-
ing in the mid-1990s, Palmer said. Commercial mullet
landings in Southwest Florida now are as high as in
1993 and 1994, he said.
A patriarch of the old fishing village of Cortez,
Thomas "Blue" Fulford, welcomed the proposal to give
fishermen a longer weekly "season."
"That would be OK with us," he said. "Anything that
gives castnetters a chance to make a better living isvel-

Until banned by a statewide vote in 1995, gillnets
were the principal means of taking mullet. Since then

McKay hired as building official
CONTINUED FROM PAGE I

Hill asked, "How many times were you interviewed by
the mayor and Mr. Welch?"
McKay said he thought he had been interviewed
three times.
"What was the nature of the interview questions?"
queried Hill.
"My desire for the job, my experience and my
commitment to the city," McKay replied, stating he had


been interviewed at city
hall.
"Was anyone else
present?" Hill asked.
At that point, Commis-
sioner Linda Cramer said,
"Point of order. This is not a
deposition, Mr. Hill."
Vice Mayor Tom Skoloda
said, "Mr. Hill still has the
floor."
With that, Iill resumed
his questioning. He asked


about salary, starting date, what benefits had been dis-
cussed and whether or not the use of a vehicle was
promised.
McKay said the use of a vehicle had not been dis-
cussed, although there had been conversation about his
riding his bicycle to work.
Hill continued his questioning, asking McKay if he
recalled talking to Hill six months ago about the posi-
tion.
McKay said he did.
McKay was hired by unanimous vote of the com-
mission.
In late April, the mayor brought up the possibility
of combining the building and public works depart-
ments and putting them under the direction of Welch.
At that time, the commission voted 3 -2 to keep the
departments separate to avoid the type of problems that
arose in the past when the two departments were com-
bined. Deffenbaugh and Cramer wanted the positions
combined: Hill, Skoloda and Commissioner John
Michaels wanted them kept separate.
In a related action, the commissioners decided
against having a foreman in the public works depart-
ment, at least for the present. They indicated they
wanted McKay to act as a hands-on director in the pub-
lic works department and serve as the foreman himself.

"Nick has been very up-front about the whole
thing," said Spotts. "No one wants to see something
pretty there more than I do. But, I paid a pretty good
price for my property and the two residential lots are
keeping me away from the commercial property.
"You ask, who wants to live next to commercial
property? So, who will want to buy my property if you
rezone the property next to me? It's a hotel in condo
clothing and I don't want to live next to a hotel."
Several people spoke against the project citing di-
minished enjoyment of their own homes. Their con-
cerns included increased auto and boat traffic, outdoor
dining and music, noise carrying over the waterway
from the pool area, the relatively small volume of al-
lotted parking and the lack of setbacks on the canal
adjacent to their homes.
The two residential lots Easterling hopes to include


Iml Roat

in the project abut residential homes on the canal as
well as Spotts' home, but building setbacks on the ca-
nal are only proposed to be 5 feet, neighbors com-
plained.
Judy Titsworth may have been the voice of persua-
sion when she spoke in favor of the development.
Titsworth lives on Sunrise Lane next door to Spotts.
"I have been on the fence with this. On one hand,
my husband wants to be on the development team and
on the other, I've always lived next to the commercial
property.
"Anything will bring noise," said Titsworth. "I've
lived next to Privateers, flea markets, late bar closings
and I don't like change either.
"I want a park, but who will pitch in the money to
make it a park? This is the best of all choices I have to
what could be next to me."
Lutz said, "Spotts makes a compelling argument
but we can't afford a park. In the big picture, I honestly
believe this is best for the long run. It may be odious,
but it's the least odious."

'Crystal ball budgeting' method offered in Anna Maria


By Laurie Krosney
Islander Reporter
Saying they want a standardized, businesslike ap-
proach to the annual budgeting process, Anna Maria's
city commission has adopted a budget process. The
process is spelled out in a document prepared by the
city's administrative code committee.
This year the process will be getting under way
late, but several commissioners said the basic planning
work has been done within a prioritized list of capital
improvement projects, which was drawn up at a special
commission meeting May 17.
According to the city charter, Mayor Gary
Deffenbaugh is to spearhead the making of the annual
budget, but he was absent from that meeting, as was
Commissioner Linda Cramer.
When Deffenbaugh asked for the list at the subse-
quent meeting, his fellow commissioners told him he

know what the list entailed.
Cramer then said, "I haven't seen lists. I haven't
seen minutes."
Vice Mayor Tom Skoloda said, "You need to come
to the meetings. It's in the minutes or you should
listen to the tapes."
Commissioner John Michaels explained that the
prioritized list had evolved at that special meeting.
Deffenbaugh again asked for a list.
Skoloda said, "Mr. Mayor, we are not going to
spoon-feed you. Come to the meetings."
Resident Dick Moller stood and said, "It seems to me
as a citizen that something as important as a budget, that
you would put that information into written form.
"Is that too much to ask, or are you trying to cre-
ate an adverse situation?" Moller asked.
The minutes of that meeting are not yet prepared,
but city staff said they were working on it. Earlier this

year, when the city staff attempted to create verbatim
minutes of a meeting, it was discovered that many sec-
tions of the official tape were unintelligible.
The guidelines for budget preparation were largely the
work of administrative procedures committee member
Brenda Holland. She prepared the document and modeled
it after the process used in Holmes Beach and other nearby
cities. The entire committee, which is headed by Commis-
sioner Jay Hill, helped fine-tune the document.
In presenting her plan to the commission, Holland
said, "Nothing will happen in this city unless we have
a budget.
"Last year the process was all but a circus, and the
time is fast approaching and really has already passed
when we should have the budget made. I feel strongly
that the budget is the blueprint of how we will operate,"
Holland said.


Holmes Beach city commissioners chose to ig-
nore the planning commission's recent recommenda-
tion to deny contractor Mark Kimball's request for re-
zoning property located at 5384 Gulf Drive.
Kimball requested that the property, which is
adjacent to the Martinique condominium, be
changed from C-2, commercial, to A-1, residential/
tourist, to allow him to build a duplex.
Kimball said he asked for a change to A-l,
rather than R-2, which would allow for a duplex,
based on the recommendation of Governmental
Services Coordinator Gerald Smelt of the Tampa
Bay Regional Planning Council.
"I'm disappointed in their decision," Mayor


She went on to say Longboat Key already has next
year's budget in place, and may be looking at a reduc-
tion of taxes.
Holland praised the city staff for its cooperation
and help in preparing the guidelines for the budgeting
process. She said it had been a lot of work for her. "I
would feel like I've been around the world two times
and to a Church of God prayer meeting, and it would
only be 8 o'clock in the morning."
Hill said that though the time will be shortened this
year, he still thinks a detailed line-item budget can be
ready in time. He said he had talked to newly appointed
Public Works Director/Building Official George
McKay, and McKay said he thought he could get his
department budgets ready in time.
The commission set the first budget hearing for 6
p.m. July 5 at Anna Maria City Hall.


Carol Whitmore said of the planning commission
recommendation. "It's very conservative We're
talking about downzoning here."
Planning commissioners considered the ma-
jority of the surrounding property on Gulf Drive
to be commercial and said that A-1 property
must border the Gulf, and Kimball's property
did not.
City commissioners disagreed with the plan-
ning commission's recommendation, stating that
"adjacent" means being in close proximity, not
necessarily next to the Gulf.
Kimball's request for rezoning will be heard at
a public hearing, tentatively scheduled for July 24.

Opinion

Imagine this
Quite literally, we mean for you to use your imagina-
tion as you focus your thoughts upon what major improve-
ments and their importance you consider pertinent
for the City of Anna Maria to undertake in the future.
Three of the five members of the city commission
met a few weeks ago to discuss capital improvements
and to prioritize an April list of proposed projects.
When asked about the outcome, their snide reply was
for the absent members, Mayor Gary Deffenbaugh and
Commissioner Linda Cramer, to plan to attend meet-
ings if they want to know what's going on.
How do you spell cooperation? Hopefully, better than
Commissioners Jay Hill, John Michaels and Tom
Skoloda.
To top that off, they didn't actually prioritize a "list."
They grouped a list of projects into streets that need re-
pairs, drainage problems, ditches and swales that needed
to be cleaned up, buildings and other infrastructure.
Surprise! The trio now want to remodel city hall,
which was the crux of a Sunshine Law complaint filed last
year by Hill against Deffenbaugh and then Commissioner
Bob Barlow. Hill claimed the pair discussed remodeling
the city offices outside the "sunshine" in private. The
complaint was dropped for lack of merit, but here's the
subject again, now the brainstorm of the three-pack.
That's a vague outline of whatever might be con-
sidered a priority list but it was nothing specific and
nothing was written down.
Pass the crystal ball, please. We're all for sharing in-
formation.
Beach congestion
Last year we met with Bradenton Beach officials,
Turtle Watch and assorted resort managers and business
owners about boats, picnic tables, tents, beach chairs and
grills on the beach all big problems for turtles.
There were lots of promises made about compliance.
and most folks made a great effort to make way for the
endangered loggerheads that nest on our beaches.
But problems have a way of coming back. They are
prolific again on the 1 300 block of Gulf Drive
and in the City of Anna Maria.
Turtle guru Suzi Fox reported to Anna Maria City
Hall Tuesday that her volunteers counted five canopies/
tents, one resident campsite at Bean Point behind a
nest, 22 chairs, three umbrellas, two coolers, six cata-
marans and two kayaks on the beach.
Think endangered species. Think of a laboring
mother turtle searching for a place to nest and ending
up tangled in ropes and posts or toppled over and help-
less from an encounter with a beach chair.
Show us you care.

What better use than
charter middle school?
After almost 30 years of visiting our parents on the
barrier islands, we finally are realizing our dream and
have become permanent residents of Holmes Beach.
We chose Anna Maria Island because it offered us all
the things we love and value glorious weather, beau-
tiful beaches and the atmosphere and activities of a
family-centered community.
We are delighted to see that the Island will begin
a charter middle school. As grandparents and as profes-
, sional educators, we appreciate the service and the vi-
tality a school brings, not just to the families of the at-
tending students but to the entire community.
It seems that Loggerhead Junction is the most ap-
propriate site for the new school, based upon what we
have learned from attending meetings and reading the
local papers. We hope that the decision to place the
school there will be based upon what is best for the
future of the community and not upon convenience,
greed and short-sighted interests or bruised egos.
The future of our community, our country, our
world depends on how we raise and educate and value
our children. What better use can be made of Logger-
head Junction than this school, founded on love and
devoted to the hope of the future our cherished chil-
dren?
Nancy and Mike Deal, Holmes Beach


Blood drive's success
On June 9 we sponsored our first annual Father's Day
blood drive on Anna Maria Island. It was a pleasure work-
ing with a private foundation that pledged $100 per unit
(pint) of blood donated for any of these four Island-based
charities: Anna Maria Island Privateers, Anna Maria Is-
land Turtle Watch, Anna Maria Island Community Cen-
ter and Wildlife Rehabilitation Center.
The Manatee Community Blood Center provided
all of its mobile units to the Island and from 8 a.m. until


5 p.m. we never took a breath, the results being over
200 units of blood. If one unit of blood will save three
lives, our community could be responsible for saving
over 600 lives.
For this and so much more we thank our Island
community as well as our friends who drove out from
the mainland and waited, in some cases more than three
hours, happily to donate.
Privateer Rick Maddox summed it up when he
proudly stated that "it is all about community spirit and
you can certainly see it here."
Functions such as these cannot possibly be done by
any one company or individual so we would also like
to thank all area merchants that helped, The Islander
and people from the Privateers, Turtle Watch, Commu-
nity Center, Wildlife Rehab, Sandbar, Beach House,
Mar Vista, blood center, city of Anna Maria, Anna
Maria Island Historical Society, Fran Maxon Real Es-
tate, the generous foundation, Publix and the Manatee
County Sheriff's Office.
But most important of all, the donors.
The record in Manatee County is 302 units of blood.
Next year, let's raise the bar and set a new standard.

and Robert and Lisa Termini, Anna Maria Island Cof-
fee Co.

Action tops discussion
I would like to take a moment to express my personal
thanks to Mr. & Mrs. Tom Lehman, who at their own
expense added some landscape plants and edging to the
intersection of Poinsettia and Rose. This was the area the
city commissioners managed to spend one hour discuss-
ing as to the legal ramifications of such action.
More residents should take time to be so interested
in the overall look of city properties that the commis-
sion cannot make decisions on and the city would look
a lot more like a community, and not a series of vacant
areas, subject to commission legal discussion, result-
ing in indecision.

Setback variances denied in Bradenton Beach


Citing a lack of "hardships" to the properties,
Bradenton Beach Board of Adjustment members de-
nied two requests for setback variances.
William and Betty Garringer had requested side-
and rear-yard variances to allow them to install an ex-
terior elevator at their two-story home at 2405 Avenue
A. He "has bad knees," she said, and contractors and
architects said an exterior elevator was the most eco-
nomical to install.
However, Chairman John Burns said there were
other alternatives available rather than an elevator to
get froni floor to floor. "It would set a non-conformity
in the area," Burns said.
Burns' comment met with opposition from Will-
iam Garringer. "It's not like it will be an eyesore," he


said, "no one objects. I'm a taxpayer. This is not right.
It's not fair. I'm not asking for the moon here. This
leaves a bad taste in my mouth."
Board members Anna O'Brian and Greg Watkins
voted with Burns to deny the Garringer variance re-
quest.
"It's difficult to show that this request is related to
the land," Watkins said. "It is related to you personally,
but we have to consider if it's peculiar to the land."
The trio also voted unanimously to deny another
variance to side- and rear-yard setbacks to Allan Bazzy
for property he owns at 205 Bay Drive N. The 50-foot-
wide lot is not rectangular, Bazzy said, claiming that"it
is actually only 48 feet wide."
He requested setback variances to "square every-


thing up." Bazzy said he hoped to build a house with
a footprint 30 feet wide and 74 feet long which, at two
living levels, would result in about a 4,400-square-foot
home.
"I'm having a hard time figuring out what the hard-
ship is," Bums told Bazzy.
Bazzy said he hoped to build "a million-dollar
house there, and I can't build a million-dollar house
that's only 28 feet wide" the house width without
the side yard variance he was requesting.
Other board members again concurred and denied
the variance request.
"That's fine," Bazzy said. He said he would use the
lot, which is zoned commercial, in conjunction with his
nearby Bradenton Beach Marina.


Island officials help with 'Imagine Manatee' process


By Diana Bogan
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach Mayor Carol Whitmore, Anna
Maria Vice Mayor Tom Skoloda and Bradenton Beach
Vice Mayor Bill Arnold represented Anna Maria Island
at a recent Manatee County Council of Governments
meeting where visioningg" was the topic on everyone's
lips.
The council includes mayors from the six Manatee
County municipalities, representatives from the Mana-
tee County Chamber of Commerce, the Manatee
County School Board and the county commission.
The group is working together to create a vision
implementation plan for the entire county. The plan
includes a citizen vision process they call "Imagine
Manatee."
The vision process is intended to provide a public
consensus on community goals with at least a 50-year
horizon.
"This county always had a vision," said County
Commissioner Joe McClash. "I see this as an effort to
come together and create a unified vision. We've never


had a collaborative visioning document."
Carol Clarke, director of the Manatee County Plan-
ning Department, stated, "What we're thinking the vi-
sion needs to be is collaborative and a community
building process."
The planning department has drafted a proposal to
solicit a consultant to guide the visioning process.
"We don't want to get political," said Holmes
Beach Mayor Whitmore. "We want to include the com-
munity and school kids with the consultant and not the
politicians."
It was suggested to use schools and citizen groups
as a resource. Public participation would be sought
through community leader surveys, household surveys,
visual surveys and brainstorming sessions.
S"This allows us to protect our unique traits," said
McClash. "To give special protection to historic areas
and the Cortez fishing village, areas that don't want to
change."
Bradenton Mayor Wayne Poston added, "The rea-
son Cortez remains unique is the people decided what
they wanted it to be and we listened."


The plans to refine a collaborative vision tie in
with the county's review of its comprehensive plan,
due in 2003.

/ Lengthy agenda leads to megameeting in Anna Maria


By Laurie Krosney
Islander Reporter
It took almost 3 1/2 hours to plow through the June
14 Anna Maria City commission meeting, which began
at 7 p.m.
There was the first reading of an ordinance to con-
tract with Manatee County for the handling of waste
water.
The second reading of two ordinances one deal-
ing with notice requirements for meetings of the plan-
ning and zoning board, the other with raising parking
fines was postponed until the readings can be prop-
erly noticed.
The commission approved the placement of a me-
morial bench and referred the future placement of
benches to the about-to-be-formed beautification com-
mittee under the direction of Vice Mayor Tom
Skoloda.
Sandbar restaurant owner Ed Chiles was granted
the right to place landscaping on the city right of way
on Spring Avenue.
The commission voted to grant $2,500 to the Anna
Maria Island Historical Society to purchase a new air
conditioner for the city-owned building they occupy.
Skoloda's request that the commission authorize
him to set up a committee to review the city's compre-
hensive plan was rebuffed. Commissioner Linda
Cramer pointed out the city charter dictates that the
planning and zoning board, which sits as the local plan-
ning agency, perform that function.

Plantings of sea grapes and beach sunflowers in

the right of way at the west end of Spring Avenue.
Ed Chiles, owner of the Sandbar restaurant,

The city commission vote to allow the land-

The matter came up at the commission's June

missioner John Michaels, who was instrumental re-
viving the committee, said he will help the commit-
tee get started in the near future and then he will bow
out.
In other action, the commission authorized
Skoloda to continue working for a skateboard park on
the Island.


Trudelle's letter states she does not want to
see "Mr. Chiles over in the alley on Spring
Street." She says she doesn't want the alley va-
cated or to see any landscaping on city property.
Commissioner John Michaels said that
Chiles' entire interest is to beautify something that
is not very attractive.
Resident Georgia VanCleave said she could
understand why Chiles would ask to beautify that
area, because it's pretty ugly. VanCleave said,
"The reason it's ugly is because he has installed
a dumpster and refrigeration unit there."
VanCleave also questioned existing viola-
tions to the right of way on the Chiles site, to
which Deffenbaugh said there have been no for-
mal code complaints.

Dr. Scott Kosfeld is hoping his gains are good
enough to raise money for the American Cancer
Society.


Island doctor flashes

legs for charity
Dr. Scott Kosfeld of Holmes Beach is trying to
prove his legs are worth $10, many times over.
The Island family physician is one of a dozen
bold men who are competing for the honors of rais-
ing the most leg money for the Manatee Chapter of
the American Cancer Society.
The winner will be unveiled at the 13th Annual
Tennis Shoe Ball, where required attire is black tie
and tennis shoes. It will be Aug. 18 at the Bradenton
City Center.
Between now and then Kosfeld is campaigning
for votes at $10 each. Voters can be anyone, and
they need to register the number of votes they wish
to cast, make out a check for a suitable amount to
the American Cancer Society, note on the memo
line that it's for Kosfeld's legs, and drop it off at his
office, 3908 East Bay Drive, across from Publix.
He also plans to have jars around the Island for
voter donations. And there will be a car wash from
9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Saturday, June 23, at the West
Manatee Fire District station, 6001 Marina Drive,
Holmes Beach. Car washers are being sought as
well as cars to be washed, he said.
So it turns out it's more a contest of charity than
of legs, Kosfeld said, and he suspects it's just as
well.


British colonel and wife buy resort on Island


A British Army colonel and his wife have ended
years of searching with the purchase of Spicer's Cot-
tages in Anna Maria City.
Col. Nigel and Maggie Brown, of Warminster,
Wiltshire, said they will spend the summer in England
completing his military career and winding up their
affairs, then return to the Island permanently in the fall.
They hope to do some refurbishing and renovating,
Brown said, but "we are eager to retain the charm of the
old Floridian beach cottages, since that is what at-

They have been looking for years for a property on
the southwest Florida Gulf Coast, he said. It is on Oak
Avenue "just a stroll from the beach."
They will name their resort the Anna Maria Beach
Cottages, he said, and plan to turn it into "a first-class
resort that will attract discriminating American vaca-
tioners and international visitors alike."
The transaction was handled by Richard and Alison
Estrin of Longview Realty Inc. of Longboat Key.

Administrative committee

continues to progress
By Laurie Krosney
Islander Reporter
Job descriptions are now completed for all staff
positions in the city of Anna Maria except for the pub-
lic works director and the building official.
That's some of the latest news out of the city's ad-
ministrative procedures committee. That committee,
under the leadership of Commissioner Jay Hill, is
charged with coming up with a guide for running the
day-to-day operations of the city.
At the June 12 committee meeting, members dis-
cussed their next steps. They decided they would work
on producing proposals for their respective areas of
investigation including legislative, financial, commu-
nications and personnel issues, and come back together
to trade and discuss "work products."
The plan is to fine-tune each member's proposals
at the next couple of meetings.
Hill will take over the area of communications. He
told committee members that Diana Milesko, who had
been handling that topic, had resigned from the com-
mittee.
Hill said Milesko and her husband would be out of
town for an extended amount of time due to the sum-
mer heat.
The committee's proposal for a budget-setting pro-
cess was adopted by the city commission at its June 14
meeting.
The next meeting of the committee is scheduled for
1:30 p.m. June 27 at Anna Maria City Hall.

Chamber seeks volunteers
in variety of jobs
The Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce is
running short of volunteers and has sent out a call for
help at several levels.
The Tourist Information Center and the chamber
office need workers, plus people to lend a hand for
special events such as festivals, a golf tournament,
fashion show and so on. Anyone interested should call
778-1541.

Harry Potter books, Florida Wheels and the BIG trip to
Adventure Island.
Upcoming trips include EPCOT Center, Busch
Gardens, Celebration Station, Mote Marine Labora-
tory, Jungle Gardens, Pirate's Cove and G Wiz Science
Center.
"We have some wonderful seasoned counselors
and terrific counselors-in-training," according to the
Center spokesperson. "The theme of this summer's
camp is 'Future Finders' an informative and fasci-
nating look at what directions your future 'journey'
may take you," said Mary Metcalf, education director.
"It's not too late to enroll your kid for next week."
Campers had the pleasure of visits from people in
various careers during the past week: Dr. Mike
Cornwell, a veterinarian, and soon-to-be physical and
occupational therapist Maggie Rosario.

Shooting, flapping ban may get memorial


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Maybe there will be a veterans' memorial atop
Leffis Key after all, as long as rifles don't shoot and the
American flag doesn't flap.
Island veteran Jim Kissick took some county ex-
ecutives and worried wildlife protectors on a tour of the
Leffis hilltop that is proposed for the memorial, in
Bradenton Beach east of Coquina Beach. Hopes were
that a compromise could be worked out.
The surprise controversy came up when Kissick
and fellow Bradenton Beach vet Bob DeVane took to
the Board of Manatee County Commissioners a pro-
posal for a memorial agreed upon by the mayors of the
three Island cities and Longboat Key.
A flagpole and small plaque honoring veterans
would be placed on the highest natural point on Anna
Maria Island to create a site for ceremonies honoring
the 800 vets on the islands on special occasions such
as Veterans Day and Memorial Day.
But a flapping flag and rifle volleys and the


flagpole's lanyards banging against the pole would
upset birds, Arlene Flisek of the Manatee Audubon
Society told the commission.
Commission Chair Joe McClash finally halted the
noisy discussion and asked the parties to get together
and iron out their differences.
'They did so atop the hill built by spoil dredged
from a half-mile canal near Leffis Key, now a recre-
ation spot and wildlife refuge maintained by the
county.
The result was a tentative plan for the county to
offer a contract with the four mayors to let the memo-
rial be created provided:
No rifle volleys be fired during ceremonies.
The American flag does not flap at night and dis-
turb birds.
The flag's lanyards do not bang against the pole,
bothering the birds.
Just when and if such an accord might be formal-
ized and presented to the county commission is, pardon
the proffer of a puny pun,,up in the air.

Result of survey of Anna Maria streets done: not terrible


By Laurie Krosney
Islander Reporter
None of the streets in Anna Maria is in terrible
shape. That's the word from Bill Snow, who conducted
a six-day assessment of the city streets.
Snow, a city resident with many years' experience
as a paving contractor, donated his services. He said he
spent a little over a week traveling all 65 streets in the
city by car, bicycle and on foot.
Snow told commissioners that 1985 was the most
recent year for which he could find records on the
streets. He said there was a wall chart in city hall, but
it was not at all accurate.
Snow said he then took a look at Manatee County's
asphalt-contract prices to come up with an estimate.


Anna Maria

beautification

committee has first

assignment
By Laurie Krosney
Islander Reporter
How many memorial benches should be allowed in
the city and where they should be placed will be one of
the first things considered by Anna Maria's new beau-
tification committee once it gets off the ground.
Vice Mayor Tom Skoloda proposed reactivating
the committee, which disappeared from the city land-
scape for several years, at the commission's June 14
meeting.
The commission, in approving a request for a me-
morial bench from Ann Sage, expressed concern about
being deluged with requests for the benches. Sage's
request for a bench in honor of her late husband and her
in-laws was turned down last year.
Sage wrote to the city asking why her request was
turned down while one made by the family of Erin
McGuire was approved.
Mayor Gary Deffenbaugh asked Sage to resubmit
her request, which she did.
The city commission unanimously approved the
installation of a memorial bench at Sage's expense but
expressed concern about the dwindling number of lo-
cations benches could be placed in the future.


"The streets aren't too bad," he said. "They need
maintenance, and the worst street is Tarpon. It should
be patched almost immediately, but I think the base is
strong."
"You can do a good patch job and then watch to see
if the base moves around," he said.
Snow said the base of the streets in the city is
mostly shell. "In the old days, you always used a shell
base. That sets up as a semi-hard crust, called 'poor
man's concrete,' and over time, the shell in the base
separates and cracks right up through the asphalt."
'Snow said when the streets are resurfaced, the
cracks will appear again over time. Shell is not used
any more, he said. Now the material of choice for street
bases is a gravel aggregate.


Tickets are on sale now for a special presen-
tation by the Island Players of "A Midsummer
Night's Dream" by William Shakespeare, opening
July 11.
It will be directed by Kelly Woodland and
staged at 8 p.m. July 11-15 at the Players theater,


The matter was referred to the soon-to-be-ap-
pointed beautification committee.
Anna Maria resident Carol Ann Magill resigned
her position on the code enforcement board specifically
to serve on the beautification committee. "I want to do
something positive for Anna Maria, and I see this com-
mittee as a way to do it," she said.


"Mainly you have just a maintenance problem,"
Snow said. "The strength is there. What you need is just
a surface treatment."
Snow recommended repaving 15 streets during the
next year, which should cost about $88,000. Then he
recommended instituting a regular program of mainte-
nance. In five years, everything should be in good
shape, he said.
Snow said he normally charges $250 a day to con-
sult on projects of this nature. Although he hasn't had
time to prepare a written report, the six days he has
donated so far would have cost the city $1,500.
The streets recommended for attention first are
Bayview, Cedar, Cypress, Fir, Jacaranda, Maple, New-
ton, Oak, Spring, Tuna, Willow and Tarpon.


Black belts
Black belts and other belt
levels were accorded these
students, shown along
with their tae kwon do

The belt presentations
were followed by a

masters attending was Vic
Caserta of Holmes Beach.

payable to Island Players at P.O. Box 2059, Anna
Maria City FL 34216.
SunCoast Real Estate is co-producer. Further
information may be obtained at 778-5755.


Magill said she thinks the placement of memorial
benches is a great thing for the committee to explore. She
also said she'd like to see the city do something about
holiday decorations and other beautification projects.
Skoloda is in charge of getting the committee up
and running. Anyone who would like to be on the com-
mittee should contact a commissioner.

Wanted: A few


Anna Maria


volunteers

By Laurie Krosney
Islander Reporter
There are several vacancies on city boards in Anna
Maria, and city commissioners want residents to step
forward and volunteer.
One opening was created on the city's planning
and zoning board when George McKay resigned to
take over as the public works director and building of-
ficial for the city.
Members of the planning and zoning board meet
once a month, or when necessary, to hear and consider
planning and zoning issues in the city. The board also
sits as the city's official planning agency.
The board will be asked this year to review the city's
comprehensive plan, which the charter states must be re-
viewed at least once every five years. The board will rec-
ommend changes to the plan to the city commission. The
board also oversees and monitors the ongoing effective-
ness and status of the comprehensive plan.
Another vacancy occurred when resident Carol Ann
Magill resigned from the code enforcement board to vol-
unteer for the newly reactivated beautification committee.
The code enforcement board operates as a quasi-
judicial body. It hears complaints about violations of
the city's codes and land-use regulations and ordi-
nances.
Possible issues that might come before the board
would include animals, nuisances, abandoned property,
signage, waterways and things of that nature.
Terms on the code enforcement board are three
years, and according to the charter, the members are to
be drawn from residents interested or experienced in
architecture, business, engineering, general contract-
ing, subcontracting or real estate.
Also wanted for volunteer service in Anna Maria
are people to sit on the city's beautification board.
Anyone wanting to serve or to recommend someone
should call city hall at 708-6130.

City to subsidize new
The Anna Maria Historical Society has been occupy-
ing the old city-owned former ice house building without
a formal lease for some time now. The discovery was
made when the city took a look at a request from its ten-
ant for a new air conditioner at the building.
The old five-year lease, which was signed in 1994,
has a provision for renewal. Apparently the renewal
was granted by the city commission in December 1999,
but it was never drafted and signed.
Vice Mayor Tom Skoloda scolded Mayor Gary
Deffenbaugh for "dropping the ball" on the lease, but
Commissioner John Michaels pointed out the agreement
was made before Deffenbaugh was elected mayor, and
was the responsibility of a previous administration.
The commission directed City Attorney Jim Dye to
draft the five-year extension to the lease for consideration
at the next meeting. Dye agreed to draft the lease, and said
that in the meantime it is perfectly legal for the society to
occupy the building on a month-to-month basis.
Historical Society President George Norwood said

he was not sure exactly what a new air-conditioning
unit would cost, but something would need to be done,
as he has been told by two companies that the present
air conditioner is not worth fixing.
Citing the enormous cultural benefit the society's
presence brings to the city, Commissioner Jay Hill rec-
ommended making a grant of $2,500 to the society and
letting it arrange for a new air conditioner.
Commissioner Linda Cramer said that because the
city owns the building she would prefer to have the city
get bids for a new system and select a contractor.
The commission voted to authorize the expense.
Norwood thanked the commission and by Friday
he was seeking bids for a new air conditioner.

and Patrick Cole throwing heat when the team faces
Manatee National.
"Steve's going to start and we'll see what he can
do," Bordes said. "From what I hear, Manatee Na-
tional has pitchers who throw a lot of curve balls, so
we'll be working on that for the next two weeks
along with moving guys into different positions than
they played in the regular season so they can get
used to it.
"We have a lot of team speed and some smart play-
ers and we're counting on both along with whatever
breaks we get. You always need breaks to win in All-
Star competition," Bordes said.
Along with the triumvirate on the mound, Bordes
will be counting on Matt McDonough behind the plate,
either Cole or Faasse at first, Sean Price at second,
Lowman at shortstop, Matt Bobo at third, either Nick
Sato, Spencer Carper, Tyler Schneerer or Shane Pelkey
in left field, Sean Pittman in center and Jordan
Pritchard in right.
"As a pitcher, Lowman has a good fast ball and
a curve and if he can control them, we'll be all
right," Bordes said. "We have a lot of team speed.
Pittman, Lowman and Pritchard can motor. A lot of
post-season play and how you do is attitude. We
can't get down."
The team practices Monday through Friday at 6:45

Lisk is going to have his hands full for the next few
weeks.
He's pulling double duty by serving as a coach for
the 11-12 team and also as manager of the 9-10 team.
Lisk said he held his first practice last weekend for
what he says is a young team, with at least half the
players 9 years old.
The 9-10 All-Stars are Ben Valdivieso, Jarrod
McKenzie, Dylan Mullen, Matt Shafer, Tyler
Fitzgerald, Miles Hostetler, Stephen Thomas, Ryan
Guerin, Severin Walstead, Scott Steenstra, Alex
Wright and Ed Shaw.
"We got acquainted at the first practice and hit in-
field and outfield and they got the ball around real
well," Lisk said. "There are a lot of 9-year-olds on the
team, but this experience will give them a heads up start
on next year.
"Jarrod McKenzie (Island Little League Rookie of
the Year) pitched and hit well. He was gold."
The age 9-10 team plays its first game at 9 a.m.
Saturday, June 30, at Norma Lloyd Park. The park is
east on Manatee Avenue, across U.S. 41. Make a right
at 24th Street East, where there's a Goodwill store on
the corner.
The Manatee County District 16 All-Stars have one
of the premier programs in the country, producing three
finalists in the Little League World Series during the
past 20 years. One of them was Manatee East, affec-
tionately called the Beast from the East.

15 minutes of fame for cartoons, films, watermelons


Does anybody else remember its being this hot this
early in the summer?
Island weather watchers saw lows of 80 degrees
Fahrenheit and highs of mid-90s for the last week, and
here it is only mid-June. Mid-August I can see the high
temps, but not now.
The real kicker is the Gulf water temperature,
which has been hovering arolind the 90-degree mark
for the past few days. Again, I remember its getting that
hot in August, but not this early in the summer season.
The bay must be resembling a crab pot ready to boil.
We got the weather service folks in Ruskin to do
a little research on water temperatures a few years ago.
It seems that 90 is about the maximum the Gulf can get,
something to do with evaporation and salt. I told 'em
there were some 91 or 92 days a few years ago, and
they said it was possible it was a glitch but that long-
term trends wouldn't let the Gulf heat to more than 90.
Let's wait and see.

Reefballs
The reefballs are coming to a bay near you any day
now.
The round, hollow concrete balls are being loaded
onto barges off Coquina Beach for deployment at six
locations throughout Sarasota Bay. They'll serve as
instant reefs for fish and other marine critters to use as
home and shelter.
The Sarasota Bay Program, one of the sponsors of the
habitat-enhancement effort, will dump about 700 reetballs
in the bay in areas damaged by dredge and fill operations
over the years. Program funding is about $50,000. Other
sponsors are Sarasota and Manatee counties and the


Barges of reefballs
were loaded off
Coquina Beach for
deployment in
Anna Maria Sound
and Sarasota Bay.
About 700 of the
balls will be
placed on the bay
bottom to create
artificial reefs.

Hurricane clips
There's a pretty neat new low-tech gizmo available
to better protect your home from hurricane-force winds
- hurricane clips.
The carbon-and-steel spring clips fit on the edge of
a piece of plywood and effectively wedge the wood
into the surrounding wall. No screws, no bolts, just jam
the wood into place.
The Texas inventor who dreamed up the device
says he's sold a slew of 'em in his home state, plus
Louisiana and Mississippi. With three hurricanes since
the introduction, the clips have performed well. They
cost about $1 each and are called PlyloxTYou can prob-
ably get them at larger home improvement stores.

Example: "Doh! I left some delicious leftovers in
Sthe car for two days and I'm starving."
Homer, the cartoon father on the TV show "The
Simpsons," will slap his forehead and say "Doh!"
whenever he is bested by something or someone a
pretty frequent occurrence. According to the dictio-
nary, "Doh!" "expresses frustration at the realization
that things have turned out badly or not as planned or
that one has just said or done something foolish."
Art and reality merge yet again.

Thrill film list
Those list-makers are at it again. The American
Film Institute has come up with the top 100 thrilling
films of all time. The top 10:
1. "Psycho."
2. "Jaws."
3. "The Exorcist."
4. "North by Northwest."
5. "The Silence of the Lambs."
6. "Alien."
7. "The Birds."
8. "The French Connection."
9. "Rosemary's Baby."
10. "Raiders of the Lost Ark."
Claude Rains and Harrison Ford led the list with the
most entries: four. Rains got it for "The Adventures of
Robin Hood," "Lawrence of Arabia," "Notorious" and
"Casablanca." Ford made his winnings from "Blade Run-
ner," "The Fugitive," "Star Wars" and "Raiders."
Personally, I think "Alien" should be higher on the
list than sixth place. I remember going to a matinee
showing of the Sigorney Weaver epic not too long af-
ter it was released. There were only about four people
in the theater, and I took my usual seat in the fifth row.
Halfway through the flick, and for the first and only
time in my movie-going life, I seriously thought about
maybe going out to the lobby for a while just in case
the monster decided to leap off the screen and get me.
And I remember writing stories back in 1975 after
"Jaws" premiered about how people just weren't swim-
ming in the Gulf as much as they used to shark fear,
don't you know?
It is somewhat surprising to me that "The Wizard
of Oz" made the list at number 43, but "To Kill a
Mockingbird" didn't make the cut at all. Go figure.

Sandscript factoid
Japanese farmers are harvesting square watermelons
these days. They figure the angular melons fit into refrig-
erators better than the normal shape. They're grown in
square glass containers to get their shape, by the way, and
you too can probably get one for $83, in Japan.

Tarpon peaking, Capt. Mike lands rare sawfish off Egmont


By Capt. David Futch
Silver king tarpon have been the topic of every con-
versation over the last couple of weeks as captains and an-
glers report one of the best years ever around the Island.
The catch of the week, however, goes to Capt.
Mike Greig of Capt. Mike's Charters in Holmes
Beach.
While fishing for tarpon around Egmont Key,
Greig and angler Don Gary of Anna Maria stumbled
upon one of the rarest of fish.
The truth is, a sawfish is not a fish. but a member
of the ray family. They're 2 feet long at birth and can
a grow to 18 feet and weigh 700 pounds.
Sawfish can utilize their saws by striking sideways
with great power. Consequently, even small ones should
be handled or approached with caution. Although people
have suffered severe injury through handling or disturb-
ing sawfish, there is no evidence of unprovoked attack.
Gary hooked into his 10-foot, 250-pound sawfish
and it took him for a ride.
Gary got him to the boat and Greig estimated the crit-
ter had a 3-foot saw with 3- to 4-inch teeth protruding
on two sides the entire length .
"We thought it was a 200-pound stingray and when
we pulled it up, we couldn't believe it," Greig said. "Of
course we didn't have a camera. But if we'd had one,
I'm sure we never would have caught it.
"The last one 1 came across was two years ago and
some fool had cut the saw off. It's a shame because the
saw is how they eat. They thrash it through bait. This
is a prehistoric animal that's endangered and an idiot
cuts its saw off so he can hang it on the wall. It doesn't
make any sense."
Only to a fool-
Greig said he's also catching a lot of sea trout on
the flats of Tampa Bay and Anna Maria Sound.
Billy O'Connor at Island Discount Tackle said
the regulars who come in have almost run the store out
of stock in their quest for tarpon.
'That's all anybody is talking about," O'Connor
said. "We're selling out of heavy duty 5/0 hooks, 80-
pound test line, rods, reels. It's been tarpon, tarpon,

tarpon for the past two weeks. There are a number of
snook off the beach right now, but they're little so
people are going after tarpon."
Tom Marsik at Annie's Bait & Tackle said Capt.
Zach Zacharias on the Dee-Jay II out of Annie's reports
tarpon everywhere from off the beaches to inside Tampa
Bay. Zach also reports catching trout to 24 inches, man-
grove snapper to 15 inches, flounder to 20 inches and quite
a few catch-and-release snook to 34 inches.
Capt. Sam Kimball on the Legend, also out of
Annie's, said he's catching spinner and blacktip sharks

from 3 to 7 feet long.
In.addition, there are kingfish to 10 pounds still hang-
ing around. Mackerel, bonita and mangrove snapper are
feeding well in 70 to 100 feet of water and red grouper are
eating cut bait in 110 feet of water, Kimball said.
Carl Shaner at Perico Harbor Bait & Tackle
said fishermen he talks to are catching a lot of snook
and trout around Perico Island and in Palma Sola Bay.
Of course, tarpon are in the mix as well, he said.
Capt. Matt Denham on the Rip Tide in Holmes
Beach said dolphin are in great numbers about 16 miles
off the Island. He said he's been catching them from 4
to 12 pounds and having little trouble finding them.
Additionally, there are red grouper from 20 to 35
miles offshore along with mangrove snapper, lane
snapper and yellowtail snapper.
Capt. Tom Chaya on the Dolphin Dreams out of
Holmes Beach said the tarpon remain productive, but
not quite as good as they were around the full moon.
Chaya said trout fishing has been top flight and
they're big.
Capt. Roy Salgado on the Grand Slam out of
Bradenton Beach said he's been nailing tarpon every
day. Local singer/musician Reid Frost caught one Fri-
day that weighed 140 pounds, Salgado said.
Offshore, Salgado said he's been catching amber-
jack and red and gag grouper in 160 feet of water.
"We spotted a sailfish and it free-jumped eight
times off the bow of my boat," Salgado said. "We tried
trolling for it, but it never came up again. That was only
about 12 miles out."
Capt. Curt Morrison and Capt. Ryan Hackney
on the Neva-Miss said they've been catching red and
gag grouper, triggerfish and porgies. Morrison said
Hackney did real well on mangrove snapper early in
the week.
Dave Rollyson at the Rod & Reel Pier in Anna
Maria said anglers have been catching all the mackerel
they want to take home.
"There are plenty of catch-and-release snook around
with dozens of them under the pier," Rollyson said. "There
were two cobia caught Sunday, plenty of sheepshead and
mangrove snapper. It was a pretty good week."

Summer camp kids
Mercedes Thornburg brought J.K. Rowling's
children's book character Harry Potter to life with the
help of Kinsey and Marin Chavez.
Thornburg familiarized the Anna Maria Island
Community Center's summer camp participants visit-
ing the Island Branch Library with four Harry Potter
stories and some of the participants filled Thornburg in
on the correct pronunciation of the imaginative lingo
used in the books.
From flying on broomsticks to owl mail service,
most campers knew the details of the first three Potter
stories intimately. However, few had finished the 730-
page book released last summer, "Harry Potter and the
Goblet of Fire."
Thornburg and her helpers were careful not to re-
