Longboat Pass dredging could start by January
Longboat Pass dredging could start by January
By Paul Roat
Bids went out Monday for the dredging of
Longboat and New Passes, and beach officials predict
sand could come out of the badly clogged passes and
onto beaches by early next year.
That's the good news.
The bad news is problems could delay the dredg-
ing effort that will bring sand to Bradenton Beach,
Longboat Key and Lido Key. According to, the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers:
There isn't any money allocated for the dredge
A dredge delay could take place to protect sea
turtle nesting sites on Anna Maria Island, a delay that
could stretch to Fall 1997.
"In the best-case scenario, dredging could start and
Islandwide uniform speed limits don't appear to be
in the offing any time soon.
Bradenton Beach City Council members had little
comment on the proposal, floated last month at the Is-
land Elected Officials Forum. The issue surfaced when
Man dies from
mobile home fire
Christopher Austin, 73, died Aug. 1 follow-
ing a fire in his mobile home at Paradise Bay
Mobile Home Park in Cortez.
Neighbors discovered the fire, entered the
home by breaking two windows and extin-
guished the fire with a garden hose. Firefighters
found Austin conscious and sitting in his chair
with second and third degree burns over 60 to 70
percent of his body. Austin was airlifted to
Tampa General Hospital, where he later died.
The fire was caused by a cigarette, said Fire
Inspector Jane Guthrie.

Once the alignment question was answered, the federal

it was pointed out that speed limits changed from sec-
tion to section on Gulf Drive, confusing both residents
and visitors as to how fast they should drive.
For Bradenton Beach, the speed limit is 45 mph
near Coquina Beach, slowing to 35, then 25, then back
up to 35 as motorists head north. A 25 mph speed limit
is in place for side streets in the city.
Vice Mayor Connie Drescher said law enforcement
officials have said current speed limits seem appropriate
in the city and questioned changing what seems to work.
She said the volume of Florida Department of Transpor-
tation signs along the right of way seemed excessive,

According to Manatee County Environmental
Management Department's Jack Gorzeman, 125,000
cubic yards of sand will be dredged from Longboat
Pass. About 38,000 cubic yards of sand will be added
to Bradenton Beach in two locations: a 2,000-foot
stretch southward from the northernmost pavilion on
Coquina Beach; and a 1,000-foot-long site northward
from 13th to Eighth Street South.
One pesky erosion-prone "hot spot" at 14th Street
South near the S-curve at north Coquina Beach one
of the narrowest parts of the Island will not receive

areas would force an extensive and expensive environ-

The Holmes Beach Charter Review Commission
has rejected a motion to recommend adoption of a city
manager form of government.
All motions must be passed by a vote of four mem-
bers. Members Joy Courtney and Bob Jorgensen voted
against the motion and members Betty Hill, Jim Bell
and Bill Saunders voted for it.
"I don't feel anything's wrong [with the present
system]. It's just a heck of a lot of work for one per-
son," Saunders said. "We've got a mayor who's work-
ing eight hours a day, every day. If the work load is that
great, the city should hire a qualified city manager and
he should be compensated for that work."
"I have not seen or heard or read of any fiscal jus-
tification for such a position or a justification in the
administrative load," Courtney said. "It's a layer of
bureaucracy that the city doesn't need."
Chairman Hill then asked for a motion to "forward to
council our recommended changes to the present charter
to include a further recommendation that the issue of a city
manager form of government be placed on the ballot along
with the other recommendations, and that the council and
public be well aware that three of the five members of the
commission are in favor of a city manager form of gov-
ernment" Bell made the motion.
"That motion is illegal," Jorgensen maintained. "It
doesn't make sense. Our purpose is to propose amend-
ments to the public, and we just voted this one down.
How can we send it to the council?"
"Why can't we make a recommendation to them?"
Courtney suggested an individual could ask the
council to consider the idea or to initiate a referendum
on the issue.
The motion was defeated by the same vote as the
The Charter Review Commission's recommended
amendments will be forwarded to the city attorney to
be put in ordinance form and returned to the commis-
sion for approval before being sent to council. Coun-
cil will hold two public hearings on the amendments be-
fore voting on them. Approved amendments will be
placed on the March ballot for voter approval.

THE BEST NEWS ON ANNA MARIA ISLAND
IKM PAGE 2 0 AUGUST 15, 1996 N THE ISLANDER BYSTANDER
Ellen Marshall's gift? Giving of herself
Ellen Marshall's reward came in part last
week from Governor Lawton Chiles.
Chiles presented Ellen Marshall with a framed,
limited edition print of "Heartland," a watercolor by his
wife Rhea, in recognition of her service to the commu-
nity and to children.
Chiles' letter to Marshall says the award is in "rec-
ognition and celebration of the difference you have
made in the quality of life in your community."
And that difference didn't just begin when
Marshall was among the first volunteers to serve in the
Guardian Ad Litem program after the death of her hus-
band in 1981.
It began much earlier when she came to Anna Maria
Island in 1947 and continues to this day. Marshall, who
is plus or minus little of age 80, accepted a new Guard-
ian case the day of the Heartland presentation, one she
thought would be very interesting because as she said,
"There aren't any lawyers involved -just us work-
ing for the children's best interests."
Guardian Ad Litem volunteers represent children in
court hearings regarding abuse, neglect and custody
According to the governor's assistant, Kathleen
Werweck, the Heartland award is always presented
personally by the governor. The recipients are selected
by Chiles from staff recommendations and supported
by recommendations from those in the community.
Last year, Marshall, a self-proclaimed "Yellow-
dog Democrat," made an introduction for a young at-
torney, who in turn introduced Buddy McKay to a gath-
ering of Island Democrats last year, and caught the at-
tention of Werweck. The occasion served as the spring-
board to Marshall's award.
Werweck contacted a long-time friend and neigh-
bor of Marshall, Elizabeth Moss, for a letter of recom-
mendation and The Islander Bystander for background
information and a further confirmation of her commit-
ment to the community.
Months later, we were asked to secretly bring
Marshall to a meeting in Bradenton of the governor with
representatives of Manatee County's Project Head Start.
Friends of Ellen Marshall, left of center, surprised her with a gathering at the Sandbar restaurant to congratulate
her following the presentation of the Heartland Award by Gov. Lawton Chiles. Islander Photo: Bonner Presswood
Marshall was given flimsy false pretenses for her
attendance at a "newspaper conference" based on an-
other of her accomplishments that of publishing the
Island's first newspaper.
She wasn't even told the governor would attend.
Once at the meeting, Marshall was told the governor
was there to present a check to Head Start and "our pre-
sentation will come later."
The dialog between the governor focused on Head
Start and the future of children's programs and issues.
Still surprised by the presentation, Marshall later
said she found herself listening to the governor and the
audience of teachers, administrators, business leaders,
county commissioners and children's advocates and
thinking, "This really does have something to do with
me and my concerns for children."
But as the governor began to wrap-up his talk, he
said he was pleased to have an opportunity to recognize
someone in the audience for her contribution to the
community. Chiles said he thought the woman he
sought to honor probably didn't know she'd been
brought to this meeting to receive an award.
"I'm sure she'll be completely surprised," he said,
"She's a lady who deserves to be recognized for her
many years of community service and advocacy for
children. She is Ellen Marshall."
With that, Marshall gasped, flung one hand over
her heart, bounced a punch cup in the other hand, and
proclaimed, "Oh, my God."
And the governor apologized for startling Marshall
"nearly to death."
The room filled with warm laughter and congratu-
lations as Chiles continued his heartfelt remarks for an
"old friend and long-time acquaintance."
For a woman the likes of Ellen Marshall, the re-
wards in life are many.
Holmes Beach: no outside signs for home occupations
By Pat Copeland
The Holmes Beach City Council agreed recently
that it will not allow residents with home occupation
licenses to have business signs on vehicles parked in
The question came up at a July meeting in which
a resident requested a home occupation license for his
mobile pet grooming business. His van was painted
with his business name and phone number.
In the past, council has only allowed vehicles to
have magnetic signs that can be removed when the
vehicles are parked at the residences. This is due to its
interpretation of the provision that "there shall be no
external sign or evidence on the property that the dwell-
ing unit is being used for home occupation."
Council Chairman Luke Courtney noted that the
ordinance doesn't refer to vehicles and the council may
have been stretching its interpretation of the ordinance.
"Past councils have always interpreted that as
meaning no signs advertising the business, whether
they're in the window, on the mailbox in the yard
Street-end dock discussion continues
Thursday in Bradenton Beach
By Paul Roat
Three recommendations and 11 proposals have
been formulated by a citizen's committee to solve
the question of repair, replacement or demolition of
docks at the end of Seventh and Eighth Streets
South in Bradenton Beach.
Proposals will be discussed by the city council
Thursday, Aug. 15 at 7 p.m.
The recommendations by the residents of the
two streets include:
The city is to pay for repair and/or construc-
tion/of the docks as well as all liability insurance
coverage, as the city owns the docks and is therefore
responsible for same.
City shall pay for all materials, homeowners shall
pay for labor to repair and/or construct the docks.

coverage, and the docks will remain public.
for the portion of the docks that the city owns. The
homeowners will pay for the portion of the docks
that they own. City to pay all liability insurance. The
docks will remain public. Note: The city is to pro-
vide proof of ownership. Homeowners have been
told that at some point in lineal footage of the dock
the ownership changes.
Residents of the two streets have wrestled with
repair of the two docks for several months. They say
city officials have paid for pilings and decking to re-
pair the docks in the past and they would like the
city to do the same now. However, city officials
have said the public versus private ownership of the
docks is in question and that the docks are in such
a state of disrepair that demolition and reconstruc-
tion is the only means to make them safe. Council
asked a special seven-member committee to come
up with proposals to solve the dock problem.
The 14 proposals the group came up with include
a wide range of ideas on the dock status. The propos-
alsrange fromaacating the streetends.t. esideats.E,

new docks and sell the slips.
An underlying theme of committee discussions
rested in who owns the docks. In an attempt to an-

bids to survey the two streets last week, but tabled
discussion until Thursday's council meeting.
or on the vehicle," City Attorney Patricia Petruff
said. "As a policy the council has always said a
home occupation is a privilege, not a right, and
we're trying to allow people to do this in the least
intrusive way as possible."
Courtney asked about residents who work at other
businesses that can park marked company vehicles in
their driveways after work hours.
"In that situation, councils in the past have deter-
mined it's very difficult to require those types of ve-
hicles to be covered, because they might be a condition
of employment," Petruff explained. "Those employees
might be on-call."
Councilman Ron Robinson asked Petruff about
requiring the resident holding the home occupation li-
cense to cover the sign on his vehicle when the vehicle
is parked in his driveway.
"I have no problem with that, but it becomes more
of an enforcement problem," Petruff replied. "The resi-
dent would have to be diligent in covering it"

mental mitigation process, so that area will not receive
sand directly from the dredge. However, he said he
expected the sand to migrate and eventually fill the
"hole" on the beach.
Gorzeman said plans call for sand to renourish the
beach area to a width of about 45 feet.

the January start-up date, but with minority contracts
an audit of the bid recipient is usually conducted, fur-
ther delaying the start of the work.
If the delay stretches into the May-October turtle
nesting season, Hansen said, dredging would be halted
to protect the environmentally endangered turtles and
would not recommence until fall of 1997.

Definition of business doesn't need
change: Holmes Beach council
By Pat Copeland
In a recent work session, the Holmes Beach City
Council agreed it does not need to change the defini-
tion of a business to accommodate residential rentals.
Mayor Bob VanWagoner suggested changing the
definition of business.
City Attorney Patricia Petruff has consistently
maintained that the city's definition of business in-
cludes residential rentals and according to her, the
city's codes do not permit doing business in a residen-

Chairman Luke Courtney said that ordinances limited
Longboat Key appoints
new assistant town
Longboat Key Town Manager Griff Roberts has
announced his selection of Bruce St Denis to be assis-
tant town manager.
St. Denis, a career public administrator, has been
the director of facility management for Pinellas County
for the past 10 years. In addition, he was the assistant
director of public works and utilities for the City of
Dunedin and served as administrative assistant to the
public works director in the City of Largo. He has
broad experience in most areas of local government.
The 43-year-old administrator is a graduate of the
State University of New York at Buffalo where he
majored in architecture and minored in urban planning
and community development. He has a M.S. degree in
management from the University of South Florida. He
and his wife, Lori, will be relocating to the Longboat
Key area where he will begin his duties Oct 1.
Roberts expressed confidence in St. Denis. St.
Denis will begin his new position at a starting salary of
$77,936.60. He will be entitled to the other benefits

residential rentals in the R-4 district to seven days and
30 days in R-1AA. He said passage of those ordinances
legalized rentals in those districts and if council passes
a proposed ordinance to regulate residential rentals in
the R-l, R-2 and R-3 districts, it will do the same.
The proposed ordinance would limit residential
rentals to 30 days in the R-1 and R-3 districts and 14
days in the R-2 district. Council scheduled a work ses-
sion on Sept. 3 at 9 am. for further discussion of the
"For the past few years, we've been trapped in this
endless loop of discussion and don't seem to move for-
ward with what needs to be done," Petruff pointed out.
The city has received a great deal of citizen input
including "complaints from moteliers because by do-
ing nothing, it [Council] has allowed a large part of the
city to become a de facto motel district which is in
competition with properly licensed motels," she said.
On the other hand, "Council has also received let-
ters from people who said real estate brokers told them
they could rent for any period and they rely on that
income," Petruff continued. "You need to do what's
right for the majority of the citizens and put something
in place that will work over the long term."
"It used to be people renting their homes but it's
gotten out of hand," Councilman Don Maloney added.
"These are commercial businesses that rent property."
Dolly Young, a real estate agent, said the 1989
comprehensive plan made duplexes illegal in the R-2
"If you start fiddling with R-2 to formally allow
rentals of less than 30 days, how are you going to
handle the people who are going to come at you with
a class action suit telling you you're infringing on their
private property rights? You took away their right to
have a duplex, but you're going to let a grandfathered
duplex rent as a business for less than 30 days," Young
Another issue council must consider is whether or
not to regulate those who are renting a room or a por-
tion of their homes, Petruff said.

Council approves $21,000 in budget increases
By Pat Copeland
At the mayor's request, the Holmes Beach City
Council approved $21,150 in additions to the 1996-97
budget last week.
Additions included $3,500 in salary adjustments
for three employees, $10,000 for beautification, $1,800
for salary increases for the mayor and council members
and $5,850 for the Anna Maria Island Community
Center's new gym floor.
Council also approved setting aside $195,000 of
the city's infrastructure funds as an advance to the
Florida Department of Transportation to begin con-
struction of bike lanes in the city.
Employee salary adjustments
Three salary adjustments were recommended by
Mayor Bob VanWagoner a reduction of the pay
grade for the new deputy clerk position and pay up-
grades for clerks in police and public works as well as
the public works maintenance foreman.
"The police and pubic works clerks are doing much
more than a clerk in an office," VanWagoner ex-
plained. "They are, in effect, administrative assistants,
and I thought we should equalize that in some way."
In addition to serving as receptionists and person-
nel managers, the city's clerks take minutes and keep
city records for their departments, City Clerk Leslie

descriptions for the positions before approving an in-

their job descriptions and unless those job descriptions
have changed, I find it difficult to see the reason for
changing the steps," Councilwoman Billie Martini

operation by freezing people into a category. You have
factors such as the cost of living and you also have the
right to implement a general increase. We're asking
more of our employees and if they're doing a good job,
they deserve promotion. Upgrading is common in busi-
VanWagoner read from the 1994 step-plan imple-

mentation program which says that adjustments to the
plan's pay ranges and steps will be considered at least
every three years.
Resident Jane Early said, "They're not destroying
the step system, they're using it justly."
"Let's use some common sense and look at the
bottom line," Council Chairman Luke Courtney
pointed out. "We have a $2 million budget. The
mayor's asking for a few changes that will cost us
$3,500 a year. It's nothing."

DOT offered Holmes Beach a 50 percent grant to
plant palm trees on Manatee Avenue from the bridge
to the traffic light, however, the project cost was esti-
mated to be $80,000 over two years, VanWagoner told
the council. The city's portion would be $40,000.

Manatee Avenue was selected as the initial loca-

Approval was unanimous.
Council and mayor pay raises
The council approved adding $100 per month to
the council members and mayor's compensation plan.
The increase would raise the mayor's compensation to
$800 per month and council member's salary to $400
per month. The change will not take effect until after
the next election.
Martini said she would approve of an increase for
the mayor but not the council.

is sufficient and any additional donations should be
given to the Friends of the Island Library.
"Thirty-nine percent of the people who use the
Center are from Holmes Beach, and I think we should
give them more," Councilwoman Carol Whitmore said.
"We just approved $10,000 to plant trees. Our kids are
more important that a bunch of trees, if you ask me."
Courtney said the current floor is a safety hazard
and there have been injuries on it.
Robinson said he would approve the additional
funding if council stipulates that it is to be used only for
the floor replacement.

additional donation but noted, "I want somebody to tell
them to stop coming in the night before they need the

1 1th Street South is
Traffic will be moving bumpier, and maybe a little
slower, on 11th Street South in Bradenton Beach.
Bradenton Beach City Council members unani-
mously approved installing two speed bumps on the
street to keep vehicle speeds within limits.
Residents along the dead-end street appealed to
council members for help in keeping car speeds down
there. Led by Frank Harrison, the neighbors said they
were afraid that a car would strike and injure a child
playing in the road. Harrison told council members last
week a speeding car hit and killed a cat crossing the
road. He said he was afraid a child would be next.
"This is an attempt to control traffic on that road,"
Councilman John Kaufmann said. "This will be a good
test to see if speed bumps are effective."
The speed bumps are a last resort to curb speeding
on the street. Police Chief Jack Maloney said officers
have been posted there to try and catch speeders to no
avail. Letters mailed by the chief to residents asking
them to slow down have also been ineffective, he said.
Cost of the two speed bumps 18-inch-wide slabs of
asphalt that will be 3 inches high and painted bright yellow,
plus signs warning motorists of the bump's location will
be $567. Installation should occur this month.
State: elevate proposed
Any beachfront construction will have to be el-
evated if it is to be a habitable structure, state environ-
mental regulators have told The Islander Bystander.
At issue is the proposed building to house the Anna
Maria Island Chamber of Commerce, just south of the pa--
vilion at the Manatee Public Beach. Discussions have taken
place among chamber officials to feature an Island visitor
information center within the building hopefully at
ground level to avoid having visitors climb up stairs.
But climbing seems to be the order of the day if
permits are ever to be issued by the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection. "If the building is to be
habitable, be it an office, condo or single-family home,
it has to have the first floor elevated above the area's
storm surge," said the DEP's Steve West.

Why oes it cost so much
to i my TV & VCR?
Because many service shops don't repair they replace. It doesn't require much training or skill and it
generates lots of money; after all it's easier to replace the entire circuit board than to locate the faulty part.
At Bob's, you won't pay $200 for an entire circuit board when a single component is bad. You might
pay $30 to $60 to locate the little bugger, but that's still better than $200.
We've got, or we can get, diagrams on just about everything ever made and we have test equipment
that can't be stumped.
If it's a TV, VCR or home stereo, and it doesn't work, we'll find the problem, we'll fix it, and we'll
guarantee it ...
We actually repair things!

Your chamber wants your
beach and, inevitably,
Here's a question for businesses on Anna Maria: Did
you know the Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce
asked the Manatee County Commission to allow it to
build a new facility at the Manatee County Public Beach?
We learned about the proposal by watching com-
mission meetings on MGA-TV (Manatee Government
Access) thanks in part to new technology from Time
Warner Cable Communications.
Members of the Anna Maria Island Chamber of
Commerce went before the board proposing an ambi-
tious move that will involve both a lengthy if not
impossible and an expensive permitting process and
an inevitable capital fundraising campaign to build on
county property at the public beach.
As we reported last week, Bob Hinds, board presi-
dent, and newly appointed executive director Mary
Ann Brockman asked the commission for its blessing
on land use at the beach, a county-owned and county-
Manatee County Commission Chairman Stan
Stephens made it abundantly clear to the chamber rep-
resentatives that while the county is willing to allow the
concept of land use at the beach to proceed, all the plan-
ning costs must be borne by the chamber. There were
misgivings expressed by commissioners, and the green
light now obviously doesn't reflect what may become
roadblocks in the future.
Commissioners indicated the loss of any open
space at the public beach or reduced parking may be
too big a price to pay.
The Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce has
struggled with identity, resources and personnel prob-
lems in recent years no to mention funding.
The office moves at the end of this month from
Manatee Avenue to a smaller facility at Gulf Drive and
Holmes Boulevard to reduce its rental obligation.
Annual fundraising efforts by the chamber cover
rent and a salary for the executive director and little
else. They offer no seminars or programs to promote
better business -just monthly pay-as-you-go socials.
While motel owners claim they reap benefits from
chamber membership, other business people are left
asking what the chamber does for them.
Our chamber serves primarily as a tourist informa-
tion center already, a service that's not necessarily bad
for a community such as ours.
But, for the dream of a new grand office complex
at the public beach or anywhere to become a re-
ality, the chamber should take its proposal directly the

business community. An earnest poll of all Island busi-
nesses should be conducted, to determine not just sup-
port but also need. A feasibility study, including fund-
ing sources, should be the first order of business.
The second order of business should be for the cham-
ber to find suitable commercial property to build on.
So far, very little has been communicated to us about
the need for this new facility which, as proposed by Hinds,
would include community meeting room space.
Unfortunately, in fact, very little has been commu-
nicated by the chamber on any subject since contro-
versy erupted over the forced resignation of the execu-
tive director in January. The small clique presently in
control is making decisions behind doors at executive
board meetings and, sadly, an elitist attitude prevails
over their "open" board meetings.
We think the chamber has managed to put the cart
way before the horse with the proposal to the county for
a new building, and there may be an alternative to lo-
cal fundraising for a visitor center that won't take valu-
able resources away from deserving community service
agencies in particular, the Anna Maria Island Com-
The Tourist Development Council, an advisory
board to the county commission, oversees Manatee
County's three percent resort tax and is already in the
visitor business. The agency funds the Bradenton Area
Convention and Visitor's Bureau, which in turn oper-
ates a Visitor and Information Center in Ellenton.
If directors of the Island chamber want to develop
a visitor center, then we suggest they consider a part-
nership with the CVB, with funding already generated
by the hundreds of motel rooms on the Island.
And if Manatee County officials deem it appropri-
ate for a visitor center on the beach, there may be bet-
ter places for it.
We would be remiss not to point out that any loss of
open space, picnic area or beachfront views at the Mana-
tee County Public Beach would be a great loss to all.
Island officials tried and lost at getting some of the
CVB's excess funding allocated to beach projects last
February, but to our knowledge the chamber has never
attempted to form a partnership with CVB.
If the majority of visitors in Manatee County are
coming to the beaches in need of information and
we suspect they are who better for the Island cham-
ber to team up with than the CVB?
There are two important questions: Who pays?
And, can we afford to lose precious space at the pub-
And one more: Whose chamber is it, anyway?
Largely due to poor business practices exhibited by
the current directorship when they fired their executive
director in January, The Islander Bystander's 1996
chamber dues were re-directed to youth programs at the
Anna Maria Island Community Center.
Bradenton Beach needs
Entering Bradenton Beach from the north, one is
greeted by an "unwelcome" sign, a large board from
which the driver traveling at the lawful speed registers
only two items "25" and "no."
What a welcoming message. Is the driver to stop
directly on Gulf Drive to read the entire sign? A dozen
passes across that city limit reveal a list of forbidden
What other municipality feels compelled to list
numerous restrictions a its border? What image does
Bradenton Beach really want to convey?
City council should immediately replace that and
similar signs with ones that welcome all comers to a
kinder, gentler Bradenton Beach.

THOSE WERE THE BAYS_
__Part 11, Anna Maria Island and the Seminole War, 1835-1842
by June Alder
_, - .- 1
A typical Florida fishing rancho like the one on Anna Maria Island where an
American atrocity took place 156 years.
William Bunce usually had a glori-
ous view of sunrise over Tampa Bay
from the wide veranda of his house in
his new fishing rancho on Palm Island
(as Anna Maria Island was called in
1838). But not today, a humid morning
in April. A thick haze hid the sun and
stung his eyes.
Bunce's fishermen had already
pushed off in their fishing smacks. They
needed to make the most of the remain-
ing time before the
rancho would close
down until August.
It had been a
good season, Bunce
the tribulations of
two years of war
with the Seminoles.
Three times he had
been compelled to
move his camp.
Twice because of
threats of Indian attacks and then 10
months ago when his Manatee River
rancho had been burned to the ground
- not by Seminoles but by order of
Bunce's nemesis, Gen. Thomas Jesup.
Incredibly, Jesup had accused
Bunce's Indian workers of aiding Chief
Osceola in liberating 700 Seminoles
from a detention camp at Fort Brooke.
It was nonsense, of course. Bunce's
people were deathly afraid of the Semi-
noles. Nevertheless, Jesup had threatened
to send them away to the West, too. But
Bunce found it hard to believe he would
do such a thing. They were too valuable to
the military as pilots and guides.
Pulling his bandana up closer
around his face, Bunce started off on his
usual morning stroll around the rancho.
The shadowy figures of the Indian
squaws flitted to and fro in the grayness.
With their men away, they had many
chores to do smoking mullet and
mackerel, mending nets, hoeing in their
Bunce marveled at how stoically the
women had endured the turbulence in
their lives the war had caused.
Bunce paused at the warehouse to
speak with his foreman, Pedro. As he
took off his hat to mop his brow he
caught the flicker of a lantern in the
murk. Straining his eyes, he discerned
the outline of a large ship anchored
nearby. Nothing unusual about that.
There were always vessels coming and
going around Egmont Key, the staging
area for the ships carrying the Semi-
noles into exile.
But this was a steamer for trans-
porting troops. Bunce heard the rattle
of chains as several boats were low-
ered. They headed ashore, some filled
with soldiers, some ominously empty.
The bows of the craft scraped on
the beach and a fully
armed detachment of
soldiers marched two-
by-two up the shore-
line, led by a stern-
faced officer in blue.
Bunce advanced to
meet him, holding out
his hand. But the of-
ficer ignored it and
pulled out a paper from
The women of the
clinging to their skirts, gathered behind
Bunce. They remembered the last time
soldiers had come. Everyone had been
taken away for questioning.
The orders were read out in clipped
tones. All rancho inhabitants of Indian
blood were to be taken to Fort Brooke
that day. In due course they would be
sent off to New Orleans and thence to
Arkansas Territory with other emigrat-
Even before he finished the women
started to moan, and when the soldiers
drew their guns, their keening
crescendoed to a high wail of pain.
Screaming youngsters tried to run
off into the woods. They were pursued
and caught. Older lads who struck out
at the soldiers were pinioned with their
hands behind their backs. Many of the
women also struggled and spat in the
soldiers' faces. Others sank to the
ground with their babies clutched to
In the end they were all seized and
dragged away some 100 women and
children, most of whom would never
see their husbands and fathers again.
Bunce's protests were in vain. Too
late he realized he had underestimated
the depths of Jesup's cruelty. In help-
less despair he watched the boats disap-
pear into the mist.

Home-desk technology keeps Jo-Ann Goodchild connected to a full slate of national clients when she's not on
the road on their behalf Islander Photo: Cynthia Finn.
Business mix of
organizational, people skills
By Cynthia Finn
When a business needs information to make de-
cisions about existing or new products or services to
compete effectively in the marketplace, a marketing
research firm gets the call.
At the root is the consumer a human being
whose decisions about where, when and why to spend
the dollar contain many variables leading to the what.
And once the decision's been made, is the con-
sumer satisfied? Why or why not?
Tapping that root, getting to the core of the deci-
sion made by the everyday consumer or the highly
skilled professional, is a specialty of its own.
Jo-Ann Goodchild of Bradenton Beach gets that call
Goodchild has been in the marketing research in-
dustry for 10 years. She is a senior moderator -
sometimes known as a facilitator with Elrick &
Lavidge, a 45-year-old firm with offices in seven
major U.S. cities.
She specializes in qualitative research getting
specific answers to her clients' very specific questions
from small focus groups or in one-on-one interviews
with all types of people all across the country.
She is skilled in helping clients from major
health-care insurance companies to small-product
manufacturers fine-tune the issues they want re-
searched. She knows how to formulate the questions
and stimulate the conversation to probe deeply into the
why's of people's decisions.
And when the conversation is over, Goodchild
compiles a report about the implications of the discus-
sion and sometimes makes a formal presentation to
client executives the end result designed to help the
client make important revenue-increasing or cost-de-
It's a job that involves a lot of travel and the con-
stant meeting of deadlines. In a given year Goodchild
might complete 30 to 40 projects for 20 to 25 differ-
ent clients, many of whom are repeat clients who have
developed trust in her abilities. She might moderate
more than 100 focus groups usually two per night
in each city, each lasting two hours and conduct
countless one-on-one interviews.
When she's not on the road, she puts in long hours
at her desk at home.
Does she ever shut her work off?
Goodchild smiles. "I constantly struggle to main-
tain a balance."
Husband Dan laughs as his wife says she tries "to
protect weekends." He is obviously supportive of his
Both Goodchilds have become involved in city
happenings and Jo-Ann Goodchild, who serves on the
Bradenton Beach Adjustment Board, wishes her sched-
ule allowed for even more commitment.
Goodchild says she had several previous jobs in the
business field that seemed unrelated but somehow
meshed together in the market research field.
Originally she was an elementary schoolteacher in
northern New Hampshire. After a few years she felt she
wanted something different.
"I'm really task-oriented," she says. "I like to
check things off my list. Teaching didn't always lend
itself to being able to check off accomplishments at the
end of the day."
Goodchild says her organizational and planning
skills, her written and verbal communications skills and
her interpersonal skills assist her in her present career.
She is also working toward her master's degree in
education and counseling. She said she's always been
interested in psychology and even if she doesn't use the
counseling degree for anything but her current job, the
learning and the people she's meeting are enlightening.
The psychology and the interpersonal skills cer-
tainly come into play when she is moderating the fo-
cus groups or conducting a one-on-one interview.
She talks about one project involving one-on-one
interviews for a greeting card company interested in
researching people's emotional needs at a certain time
of year. Those being interviewed did not know what
type of product the research involved.
The final question, Goodchild says, asked people
what they would change if they could change anything
about their lives.
"I felt like I was holding a counseling session," she
says. "People were very emotional and candid."
That knack for gaining confidence, for eliciting
people's gut-level reactions, is extremely important to
her success at her job. Her insight in interpreting what
she hears and sees is invaluable in providing her clients
with the information they need.
"What I do can seem very abstract," Goodchild
The bottom line translates into the trust of scores
of national clients who bank on Goodchild's ability to
draw out the truth be it from a middle-aged home-
maker or a six-figure professional.

The Florida sea gull is a beautiful bird,
A fact I suppose you have often heard.
With his pure white body and his little gray
He is equally at home on land or afloat.
He cleans up the beach of all the dead fish,
Or scraps from the table if that is your wish.
And as he flies around surveying the land,
He will even take food right out of your hand.
But watch out for him as he is passes by
'Cause he may drop you a message right out of

Live, on stage
The newest nightclub around our parts Zinger's
- is offering some top entertainment. Last week,
former local boys made good (via Marshall Tucker and
the Allman Bros.) Frankie and Dan Toler, aka the Toler
Brothers, performed there.
This week, Billy Rice takes the stage with perfor-
mances Thursday and Friday night.
Catch Billy if you can. He's moving in the fast lane
these days with shows booked all over between here
and Nashville. Apparently he has a big following on the
casino circuit in Biloxi, Miss.
Billy's famous at Duffy's Tavern. He's the guy that
ordered 80 cheeseburgers, all at once. The burgers were
lunch for a stucco crew at work on a condo project in
Bradenton Beach. I heard the order came out just fine
although the grill cook was putting in her first day on
the job. After all, burgers are their business.
Music is Zinger's business. Every Sunday night
there is a rock and blues jam with Queenie and the King

Petty theft charge
filed in newspaper
The State Attorney's office has filed charges of
petit theft against Roy Salgado in the alleged theft
of several thousand copies of The Islander By-
stander last April.
Salgado and the charter boat ReefReacher were
the focus of an article involving a Gulf fishing trip that
went awry. Apparently irate over the article, Salgado
collected newspapers from boxes and stores on the
Island about 3,000 papers in all.
Salgado admitted taking the papers to sheriff's
deputies. Most of the papers were recovered from his
vehicle and re-distributed.
The court case on the matter is scheduled for
Sept 12 in the Manatee County Courthouse.

Cleaner beaches may be coming
By Bob Ardren
Two important pieces of news regarding the safety
of waters along our beaches came to light this week.
One is local and one is national.
Karen Collins, director of the Manatee County Envi-
ronmental Management Department, told The Islander
Bystander Monday she hopes to take some action on the
issue. Collins says she plans to put together a system for
testing water at Manatee County beaches and will be pre-
senting it to the Manatee County Commission.
Responsibility for testing beach waters, according
to Collins, actually falls to the Florida Health and Re-
habilitative Services Department. But with the budget
cutting and added responsibilities given that agency, it
stopped the task several years ago.
"My water quality staff says that especially after
storm events, water quality is degraded," Collins com-
mented. "Of course, we have no direct discharges of
wastewater, as do some other communities."
This might be a good time to let your county com-
missioner know you're interested in knowing our
beaches are safe, and having them take a look at
Remember, Sarasota County has a minimal testing
program -just four times a year but a total cost that
comes to $1,100 a year. We could easily afford that for
both our health and that of our tourists, too.
The national government has become interested in
Winners in the August 10 horseshoe games

the safety of our beaches, too. Legislation was intro-
duced last month by Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-New
Jersey, that would require all states to meet rigorous
standards to be set by the U.S. Environmental Protec-
The proposed law would require states to warn the
public when water is unhealthy. Proposed standards
could set limits on the frequency, duration or concen-
tration of pathogens in the water.
That's what happens more laws when people
don't bother to do even the minimum to protect the
public's health or safety. Clearly, if more states and
local communities took action on their own, there'd be
no need for more action from Washington.
McChesney takes action
Speaking of clean waters, former Anna Maria
Mayor Dottie McChesney deserves a pat on the back
for attempts to keep our local beaches clean. She wrote
the U.S. Coast Guard asking about dumping being done
from cruise ships entering and exiting Tampa Bay.
The reply she got back was interesting.
It seems that due to a lack of garbage facilities at
cruise ship ports, the Coast Guard isn't enforcing the
rules about dumping at sea. Dottie made the point in
her letter to the Coast Guard, and they agreed in their
reply, that eventually some of that garbage is going to
end up on our beaches.
Of course it does.
So then the mayor wrote Manatee County Commis-
sioner Lad Ann Harris. "As commissioner in charge of
operations and expansion of Port Manatee, I would hope
that you might be instrumental in seeing that our port
would install the facilities to take care of the reception of
wastes from these vessels ...," she asked.
Harris wrote back saying she is asking for a staff
report on the matter, and will let McChesney know
what she finds out. Harris had not returned my phone
calls at press time.
If Port Manatee wants the business of having cruise
ships docking there, it only seems reasonable to see to
it they aren't spreading their garbage generated by that

Meanwhile, a national effort to monitor amounts
and sources of debris washing up on our nation's
shores began last month.
The National Marine Debris Monitoring Program
includes two sites on Anna Maria, between 69th and
75th Streets in Holmes Beach and between Third Street
South and 12th Street North in Bradenton Beach.
Volunteers will collect the trash and submit data to the
program which then analyzes it and determines its origin.
The monthly monitoring of selected sites and bi-
annual shoreline clean-up efforts will provide a closer
view and better information about marine debris
sources in order to curb the trash washing ashore on the
beach or trash carried there by sloppy beachgoers.
To volunteer for this program call local coordina-
tors at 778-7949 or 778-7682.
North Skyway pier expands
Well, it isn't actually any bigger, because after all
it's the largest fishing pier in the world already. But the
north Skyway fishing pier has finally opened its bait
shop, restaurant and permanent rest rooms.
The real treat will be when the south pier finally
opens for business, meaning we'll then have the
world's longest fishing pier right here in the neighbor-
hood. The price to angle on the long pier is $6.
New mangrove-saving regs
The new mangrove trimming regulations passed by
the most recent legislature are in effect and tightened
up some from those previously used. If you plan on any
trimming, learn the new law before you start and save
yourself a very healthy fine.

partment of Environmental Protection, 3804 Coconut

Skyway pier opens with mackerel, shark action
By Capt Mike Heistand
The new fishing pier at the north side of the Sun-
shine Skyway Bridge officially opened last week un-
der the management of former Holmes Beach resident
Tom Carpenter. Although it costs $1 to get onto the
bridge and another $6 to fish, the action is good, with
Spanish mackerel, small sharks, flounder and some
cobia coming in last week. The pier is the longest of its
kind in the world and one of only two where you can
literally fish from your car or camper.
Karen at the Rod and Reel Pier said pier fishers
there have been catching a lot of mangrove snapper,
redfish, undersized grouper and a few mackerel. Luther
Sasser may have also set some sort of a record at the
pier with his 50-pound sting ray.
Susie at the Anna Maria City Pier said anglers
there are catching big reds, mackerel, black tip shark,
mangrove snapper, baby black grouper and catch-and-
Jamie at Miss Cortez Fishing Fleet said the four-
hour trips averaged 40 head of Key West grunts. The
six-hour trips averaged 75 head of small grouper, por-
gies and Key West grunts. The nine-hour trips averaged
125 head ofporgies, Key West grunts and small grou-
per. The 12-hour trips averaged 38 head of black grou-
per, mangrove snapper and amberjack.
Capt Zack on the Dee Jay II said Sarasota Bay
seems filled with small tarpon, some reds up to 29
inches long, catch-and-release snook, trout, mangrove
snapper and lots of small gag grouper.
Chris at Galati Yacht Basin said he's hearing good
reports of nice-sized black grouper in about 110 feet of
water in the Gulf. There are also some large mangrove
snapper offshore that seem to like pinfish as bait.
Carl at Perico Island Bait & Tackle said wade
fishers are catching lots ofredfish and a few catch-and-

Capt. Rick Gross said he's finding fishing to run
hot and cold right now, with catches of 30 reds on one
trip and only two the next day. Capt. Rick does predict
the fall snook season to be another good one.
On my boat Magic we've been going offshore for
some nice-sized grouper, both red and black. We've
also found a few mangrove and lane snapper and some
trigger fish. Backwater action has centered around red-
fish, especially on the lower tides.
