Special Meeting Within Workshop Makes Long Afternoon

Beach Sand From Dredgirig Likely From Both Passes There was some trepidation last Thursday morning by officials of th e Longboat Key Beach Owners Association that their invited guests might not show up, but a few minutes after eleven, they came into the Commission meeting room.

Five Official s Led by William Garland of the US Army Corps of Engineers from Jacksonville, the delegation of top brass included Bill Carlton of the Department of Natural Resources from Tallahassee, Ralph Davis of the Sarasota County Water and Na\"igation Control Authority, Phipps Hager of the US Army Corps of Engineers, and Charles Furbee of the \Vest Coast Inland Navigation District. Sarasota: No Speeches Taking seats in the front facing the audience of close to 30 people, the visiting dignitaries made no speeches, just answered the questions of the BOA officers, the pre~s and the audience who were an-''<ious to 2et some straight answers.

Town Garbage Contract Still Up In The Air

A Prayer for all Seasons, Especially Thanksgiving

Me t Six Tim es Bob Hanna. General Manager of the firm, said that he had met with Town ~Ianag e r Wayne AJlgire about six separate times and each time they agreed on a contract only 10 have the Commission come up with its own terms. As a result, Hanna says, the subject is still up in the air and he now suggests that the Commissioners draw lip a contract, have it checked with the Town attorney and let him accept or reject it.

I was made weak that I might learn humbly to obey.

I asked for health that I might do greater things, I was given infirmity that I might do better things.

I asked for riches that I might be happy,

Recently Commissioner Al Lewin, who has borne the brunt of some verbal attacks by former Commissioner Howard Ridyard at Commission meetings and workshop, contacted The ObseT\'er and as ked if he might be pt!rmil1ed to make a statement prior to his leaving for the holidays. Here are his comments on the Longboat political scene: A Vendetta? "It seems to me that what can best be described as a 'villagt" vendetta' from a southern precinct on the island is being foisted 3.gainst all the rest of the reasonably happy and contented people o n our key. The interests of this quanet arc purely parochial. yet they would have us believe they are speaking fo: the entire key. Indeed, in their relentl ess campaign, they ha\'e made a strange bedfello\\' in Howard Ridyard, who has acted as their mentor, since he was defeated in his O\,'n campaign for fe-election as a member of the Board of Commissioners. It's like a fellow who lives in a high rise objecting to a high rise 6 blocks away, for this group is forever bemoaning the fact their their view is being blocked. "Together with these more than articulate ladies. he has conti nued to challenge - even to scold - the Commission, o r at least a few ofils members.

Under The L.~m.on Tree By June Wisby (June Wisby is Ihe owner oj The Lemon Tree in Whitney Beach shopping center and writes a column oj whimsy each week.) Once you are writing a column, family and friends are delightedly sure that you will be happy to put into print a pitch for their favo rite causes. Just let me complain that I've been sitting at the typewriter before a blank sheet of paper for hours, groaning and sighing fo r an inspiration , and the suggestions come flying at me like mosquitoes on a damp night. Mostly what I'm told to write about requires a knowledge that I do n't have, for instance, the vinues of the new math versus the old. Good heavens, new math? When did that happen? I haven't even mastered 'the o ld stuff yet! If it is something that just doesn't stir me to any kind of intellectual high, and simply does not get my typing fingers to tapping. I don 't want to write a treatise on nuclear power plants and why they should all be abandoned. Sure, I know they are potentially dangerous, and they a re creating waste they don't know how to get rid of. However, I like not having to write longhand by candle light, and I'm sure the nuclear scientists already know that they'd better get o n t he stick and solve these problems before we all go up in a big puff of mushroom clouds. My nagging won't make them try any harder. I'm not trying to be a writer for the ages. llike writing with a light louch, and I find nothing humorous about child abuse, political graft or consumer fraud, subjects about which another friend tried to urge me to pontin· cate. I'm against them. What else can I say? One of the wisest women 1 know, the Reverend Carol Parrish of Sarasota, once said, "There are a lot of things that I care about deeply, but I know that not everything is mine to handle. You have to concentrate your energies on what is most important to you and not scatter them on a great number of causes. Someone else will have to take care of the other problems ." So, although I get angry about corruption in government, abused people or animals, justice inequities and greed , until I can find something amusing to say about them, someone else will have to handle the heavy stuff. •

FROM STATE REPRESENTATIVE

Florida RepreHntllive Dlslrict #74 2002 Ringling Btvd. Sarasotl. Florida 33Sn

National Electio n Res ults Fe lt At State Level The November 18th Organizational Session of the Florida Legislature was highlighted by remarks made by the new President of the Senate and the new Speaker of the House of Representatives that followed the national trend and clearly indicated a return to conservative constitutional government. II was most interesting to note that the message conveyed so clearly to the members of our Federal government on Tuesday, November 4th was also received by those at other levels of government. While state government in Florida has not found it necessary in recent times to impose any major tax increase, it has certainly nOt imposed similar restrictions on state spending . The 1981 Florida l egislative Session, that will begin next April , could be a very interesting experience for those of us that feel that a return to conservative principles is long overdue. •

. Alo ng State Street By JOH N SLACK Speciailo Th~ Boston Huald American Reprint~d with p~rmission A small Over-the-Counter company named General Defense jumped two points within 10 minutes Wednesday afternoon, hig hlighting o ne of the latest developments in the investment world. Before the Reagan sweep it was already clear that the mood in Congress had shifted on defense spending. Heightened recognition that U.S . military preparedness has been deteriorating seriously had already caused Congress to provide more money in the 198 1 defense budget than President Carter had requested . And just this week the incoming chairman of the Senate Armed Forces Committee, Texas Senator John Tower, predicted the next Congress will up the ante by another $3 billion in the 1981 budget and will increase spending in 1982 by another four to eight percent. According to Tower, the defense budget will no longer be tied to specific percentage increases. Instead, Congress wi ll concentrate on funding U. S. needs. Tower's statements reflected the realization brought home by U.S. impotence in the face of the upheavals in Iran a nd Afghanistan that the nation's militarv machine has deteriorated badly. There's still more th~n enough nuclear capability, of course , but the nuclear muscle has masked the growing flabb iness of the armed forces in everything from bullets to spare parts. The perception that there would be special emphasis on nuts and bolts eluded investors for a while. Names like Boeing, Lock heed, Raytheon and General Dynamics spring quickly to mind when searching for ways to invest in the c9ming military spending boom, but these large companies are only the obvious hunting grounds. It is now dawning on investors that some of the second-tier companies may prove more interesting and rewarding. For example , a close look at the numbers already autho rized shows that spending for new aircraft will rise by less than 10 percent but out· lays o n spare parts are going up 40 percent.

Special Meeting, , , , , , , , ,(Continued from page 1) GPO For Condos? The second agenda item discussed was Resolution 80-21, with amendments to Resolut ion 76-7. At issue was the request from Arthur Koenig of Sands Bay condo, representing Sands Bay, Privateer I and II , and J~ongboat Key Towers , all of which want to be admitted rh., A.rJ,:i~'s Gulf Planned Development (GPD) and en____ ~, .:creational and condominium benefits to which they reel they are entitled. Must Amend Zoning First "Impossible," says Town Counsel Welch Whitesell since the Town 's zoning has changed. In his opinion , the only way to include the condos in the GPD would be to take out some of their existing units so they would comply with the present zoning code. Since that is impossible, even if Arvida wanted to go along, the Town would have to amend the Zoning Code to permit it. This is acceptable to the condos involved and to Arvida and will be discussed in greater detail next week. Next came a discussion of the approval of Arvida's site for the Resort Hotel and approval of Resolution 80-21, After just touching on the subjects, they decided to postpone discussion until the next meeti ng Dec. 10th. Storage Shed Issue Still Alive Chairman Jim Edmundson of the P & Z Board reported that the storage shed for GMD near Tarawitt

and Jungle Queen was turned down unanimously, but only when developer Steve Wilson said he did not want an extension to overcome some staff objections. Wilson was at the meeting and wanted to show everyone how he had complied fully with the Town codes and wanted to move ahead. Gen . Edmundson agreed that if the changes are made, the project will comply fully with the Codes and his board will have no alternative but to approve. He said he agreed with the Objectors who said a two story warehouse would be ugly, but Edmundson felt that if it were only one story , less parking and more attractive, it would be much better for the Town, the abuttors and the developer. Wilson was told the proper procedure to fo llow and is expected to be back with his changes. If they do comply, then the Town may have a lot of trouble turning down the plans. Guard Gates For Sea place A guard gate was proposed for the two entrances to Seaplace by Charles Duffy of the condo association that has taken over the ownersh ip from Arvida. The Commission had no objection, Arvida has none, and all they need is the approval of the condo association it self which must canvas every owner. Ansel Transfer Of Density Again The proposed Ansel density transfer was started at 3:45 p.m . Attorney Mike Furen again carried the ball for Jerry Ansel, this time giving the Board copies of an analysis he had prepared showing values received by the Town and by Ansel. Balance Sheet . Using the appraised figures of the propert y of $5 ,608,500, he poimed out that the Town was receiving land valued at that amount. He then said that Ansel would receive credit for $2,258,250 in the transfer of density and another $1,150,799 if his client was allowed, by the transfer, to satisfy the prOvisions of 80-1, which is the Land Acquisition Ordinance . The so called balance sheet would then read, Town: 55,608 ,500 and Ansel: S3,409,049. This, according to Furen, was more than fair. Must Also Pay La nd Acquisition Fee Commissioner Tac Riter was the first to speak. He said he didn't question the appraised figures, but couldn't understand how Ansel's land was worth so much when the Town was offered all of Jewfish Key for 5800,000 or so, alid Sister Key for around a million dollars. He felt that Ansel should not ask that the acquisition ordinance be waived and said he should also pay the Town the acquisition fee of 51 , 150.799.

Three Against Russ Fernald agreed, as did Claire Ben. Mayor Ken McCall was asked how he felt and he said that until Riter had spoken, he was in favor, but after listening 10 the argliments of his th ree fellow Commissioners. he was not so sure. The Mayor postponed any more discussion until the 3 absent Commissioners return. All of them are reportedly in favo r of the Ansel proposal.

Longboat's COmmissioner "Tac" Riter and Mayor Ken McCaU.

In Favor? During the discussion of the plans offered for the Gulf side location, everyone agreed that they were excellent, much better than the "La Mer" plans originally offered. Jack Whelan, Planning ConSUltant . and Tim Siebert, Architect, were~ on hand to explain that a mezzanine was planned that would mean the first of ten stories would not mar any view of the Gulf. All the Commissioners agreed that the height limitations would have to be waived if they wanted to get that number of units on the property and still keep great areas of open space greenery. But they all were against waiving the provisions of 80-1 for Mr. Ansel. The swing vote may indeed be the Mayor's when the subject comes up again on Dec. 10, the next sched uled Regular Com mission Meeting. -

At 4:40, they adjourned the Workshop, convened the Special Meeting, voted to offer the contract to Cedar Hammock , adjourned it and went back to the Workshop. Condo Documents Commissioner Sid Ochs' plan to demand more in formalion on condominium documents as set forth in Ordinance 80-12 was felt to be the province of the St ate not the Town, and Counsel Whitesell felt that if the absent Commissioner Ochs could tell him what {he di sease was fo r which this was a cure , he would be happier. They postponed further discussion until Ochs' return. Gulf Tides Last on the agenda was a proposal by Gul f Tides motel to remodel and enlarge the buildings from the present 12 to II larger units. The reason for its place in the meeting was that Town Manager Allgire felt the Town laws were confusing as they were on the White Sands case, and that while the staff had no fault to find with the plans, they were in agreement with Town plans. but not with Federal Flood Control regulations. In shan, would they have to adhere to a 12 foot floor el e v ati~n

or not? And since it would be time sharing , would !t be a hotel, motel , apartmem or single family dwelling? Extend Manatee Bus Route? Commissioner Fernald then asked if he could go before the Manatee County Commission and present a petition of close to 90 residents of Longboat to ask for an extension of the bus from Coquina Beach down to the Whitney Beach Shopping Center . It will be voted on in the form o f a Resolut ion at the Dec. 3rd meeting.

New Pick Up Days The subject was referred to the P & Z Board and will

Pa sses Ordi na nces

~Commission passed an Ordinance on topless entertainment on first reading, authorized the scouring of some Country Club Shore canals that had silted up , passed an ordinance requiring insurance before a temporary certificate of occupancy can be issued, passed an ordinance amending the zoning code regarding variances to gulfside setbacks, and also made public hearings and appraisals mandatory for all transfer of density proposals, which had been suggested by the P & Z Board when they disapproved of the whole transfer idea. Ansel Proposal Back to P & Z

The Ansel proposal was bumped back to the P & Z Board again, this time to consider amendments to the zoning code and then to review the Outline Develop· ment Plan for the gulf front acres. Attorney Mike Furen and the Commission still have to settle the issue of whether the land acquisition ordinance (SO- I) applies to the additional 20 acres on the Bay. Ansel's offer, still to be accepted by the Town, is to donate 61 acres of land for the Town to use as it

It was a beautiful day for golf on Tuesday, and the Ladies Association o f the Longboat Key Golf Club played best ball of the foursome with 90070 handicap. The following scores were posted:

The P & Z Board has voted unanimously to oppose any transfer of density, bUl the Commission over-ruled them 6-1 and approved the plan. Some details still have to be ironed out. Youth Center? If the transfer takes place, many hope part of the land will be used for a Youlh Center and the front part for whatever purposes the Town wishes to make of it. Some suggestions have included a centralized Public Safety Building with an auditorium over the garage portion, or a maintenance garage for all the Town vehicles.

3 More Units Per Acre

The Ansel property of 25 acres on the Gulf is pre~ently zoned fo r 11 units per acre or 275 units. If Ansel is perm itted to transfer 75 units, the density will be 14 units per acre. In return fo r this, the Town will own land on the Bay appraised for over S5 million. •

"And where was he when the Beachplace complex was approved? In truth, I consider Beachplace to be one of the gravest invasion of what any of us wanted to see on our good terrain. Ali i can see is another Forest Hills apartment development; the kind you view as the Long Island trains rattle past these ugly ramparts. In truth, I don't like high rises any more than anyone else. We would all love to see the virginal quality of the Key as the old photographs show. That's Utopia! But the fact is that we do have high rises and we do nOl have the authority to withhold the development of others without infringing on their legal rights.

Gulf Condos South Of Town Hall Have Varying Density Figures With all the talk of reducing the density o n Longboat Ke y. that is, the number of persons living on an acre of ground, The Observer surveyed the gulf front condos on the southern end of Longboat Key recently. The density is figured by dividing the number of Jiving units into the acreage. A sin.&le family living on a quarter acre would

have a density of 4, for example. A unit is said to house about 2 people on Longboat Key. Years ago, the density permitted on the Key was over 20 units per acre. It is now down to the teens, depending o n the zoning map of the Town. Nor is density the ultimate answer as to whether or not a condo or development is attractive or good for Longboat. Other factors, such as design, amount of ground covered and height are also given different priorities by different people, But density is one facto r deemed important.

AI Lewin ....... .... , .... (Continued trom pege 5) is being discussed. The property would be dedicated to the Town and thereby perpetuate sensitive open green area as well as also providing an excellent site for the proposed Youth center, public safety building, large Town meeting room or for whatever purposes the Town might elect. Gulfside Plans · "':"" "even the general conceptual plan of the Ansel Gu~~e property showed in counterpoint a preponder. ance of green and open area in contrast to its southern neighbor, Beachplace. It was like two murals· one with splotches of black over the field area and the other a tapestry of green with an island of pinks, etc. Open Space "For several years since the open space area was first designed and approved by staff and the Town Commission , everyone gives lip service to the idea of securing open space. We need it, we love it. But land on the Key is becoming prohibitly high for the Town to acquire by cash purchase today, so it becomes a very theoretical situation . The money is not in the till. This represents perhaps the first real opportunity to implement the open space plan and make it a reality. Some of

the opponents of the plan on the Commission have been insisting on taking the utility funds for operational purposes with the net result that the Town surplus is bone dry . The people and the Commission, together, must be realistic and pragmatic and understand that under the circumstances , property owners do have their rights and cannot be prevented from properly developing their properties, provided the plans meet the codes.

Private Poll "All of my own grass roots polls indicate that almost

everyone favors this density proposal exchange in the light of what it offers to the Key. We on the Commission, it seems to me, must not fail to consider the future. We get so locked up as we think of the present but in reality we must look way ahead. Now who is to say for instance that the increasing and ever growing pressure for accommodating more people and more space along the waterfront will not one day be pushed to the point that it will endanger the greenery of White Island which directly faces the Longboat Harbour area. It is now zoned in fact for single family housing and some enterprising person might make this a reality. Suggestions? "What suggestions do I have? Well, simply to ask , no, to implore the good people of Longboat Key who aTe concerned to attend these Town Commission workshops and regular meetings particularly those th at will be forthcomi ng in the next few weeks when this matter becomes finalized. Let them be heard so that the lobbying by a very small clique will be recognized for what it is, a parochial group which is taking out on everyone else their own disappointment in what they • have or don't have themselves."

De Soto Memorial's Opening Plans The living history camp, Camp Ucita will reopen December 6th at the foot of 75th Street in Brademon.

Solar energy will be the topic of programs given three times a day, on Mon· day through Friday. These programs will be presented at the park visitor center at 11 :00 a.m., 1: 30 and 3:00 p.m. On weekends this season, park rangers will lead walks on the park's nature trail.

Town Resolutions Confusing Until You Understand

THIS AD EFFECTIVE: FRI., • 28 THRU WED., DEC. 3, 1980••• CLOSED SUNDAY.n

This week, the Commissioners are discussing amendments to a resolution entitled 7~ 7, which to most pt"'"'".• • is meaningless. But to those who have been ar~' Town Hall for a few months , iI means that it is the 7th resolution that was proposed in the year 1976 . It might have been the last to be passed, but it was the seventh to be proposed and given a number. 76-7 has to do wit h an agreement the Town made with Arvida back in 1976 and it is the subject of many suggested changes. Resolution 80-2 1 (the 21 st resolution proposed in 1980) is one which approves amendments to 76-7 . if you can still follow the numbers. Here are the resolutions of 1980 with the subject matter and status . I f you'd like to go back to any other year, they are in the minutes of the meetings, but don't plan to spend the taxpayers money and ask for someone to do the search for you. The Town staff is most cooperative and will be pleased to make all the records available, but you'll have to do the research, the nOte taking and the typing. Resolutions: (Already passed) 80· 1 Approval of Players Club Site Plan 80-2 Disapproval of Bay Isles condominium 80·3 Request of Sarasota County to reconsider vote to di scontinue Longboat Key bus sen·ice. 80-4 Voted to name Ellis Longboat Key Bank repository for computer tapes. 80-5 Request for spoil from dredging of Nee Pass 80-6 Request of Sarasota County to repeal ordinance k~ping ad valorem tax receipt interesl. 80-7 Approval of Longboat Cove Site Plan 80·8 Request of Manatee County to reconsider vote discontinuing bus service on Longboat Key. 80-9 Amended 78-24 approving Arvida's Bay Isle Civic and Commercial Center. 80-10 ' Approved transfer of budget funds within same department 80-11 Annual request fo r special taxing district of Sarasota County in con nection with Double Taxation suit. 80-12 Request for spoil from dredging of Longboat Pass. 8D-I3 Sail Boat Square Site Plan amended 80-14 Amended resolution 78-24 80-1S Amended revised Site Plan for Beach place 80-16 Voted to ask DOT for fund s for feasibilit y study of bridge to the mainland. 80-17 Voteo to designate Acting Mayor succession. 80-18 Voted to ask Community Affai rs for funds to implement Comprehensive Plan. 80-19 Approved Site Plan fo r Beaches of tong boat Resolutions proposed but not yet approved : 80·20 Approval of Arvida's Resort Hotel 80-21 Amendments to 76-7 •

IT' Green Frog Owner Dies On East Coast William J . Durst, Jr., co·owner of the restaurant location on Longboat Key known as the Green Frog, died Nov. 9 at Holy Cross Hospital in Fort Lauder· dale. He owned the LBK property jointly with his former wife. -X'nJrst and his attorney, Mike Furen, were frequent V\~ ..;H'S and often speakers at Commission Work shops and regular meetings as the litigation regarding the property grew more complicated. Eventually, a solution was found and the property may now bt used as a restaurant with "adequate" parking. Funeral services for Mr. Durst were held in Feasterville, Pa ., and the property itself is now solely owned by • Mrs. Catherin~ Durst of Fort Lauderdale.

A Conversation With Annette Scherman H~re's a switch, an interview~r becomes an interviewee . Anneu~ Scherman has been entertaining and informing the Sarasota listening audience with her talk sh~w on WQSA radio for almost four years now . Appnalely call~d "Conversations with Annette Scherman," the program focuses on the arts in Sarasota and other items of community interest. In this nOHo-exciusive interview, Ms. Scherman talks about her early days in radio, h~ r lire before comi ng to Sarasota, and her talk show today. KeYln Dean - How did )'ou get started in radio locally? Annette Scherman - Well, I've worked in radio as an actress ~ver since I can remember. Radio was very different In those days and I was trained as a radio actress. Locally, it was the magazi ne format that inspired me. There is so much going on in Sarasota and I quickly became a part of it after my husband and I moved here. It octurred to me that with 'all this activity, this kind of program was needed - it was the right thing. So, I .w~nt down to talk to Ted Rogers at WQSA, who, cOincIdentally, had been thinking about doing this sort of show. It was fate or whatever you want to call it. The timing was good. Anyway, I wrote up what I had in mind we discussed it three or four times and then he gave ~e the go ahead. Thai was almost four years ago. We started out with the 10 to 11 :00 time slot and within the first year, the show was sold out commercially. At this point, we have expanded the program to two hours and during the years we have added and deleted features. K.D. -l!0w lona: have you livtd in Sarasota? A.S. - FIve years. K.D. - Were you looklng for something 10 get involved with during that ncst )·ear? A.S. - No, I was involved from the minute I got here. The firs! thing I did was organize the first allwomen's t:nnis tournament. That was kind of a daring feat, but It brought me into contact with a lot of women's organizations. The tournament was sponsored by 20 of them. I was also active, to some extent, with the League of Women Voters. That is a very good way to get acquainted with a community. K.D. - Let's back up a bU. You said you were trained as a radio actress. Old you work In the old soap operas? .A.S. - Yes. Unfo.rtunately, it was very difficult to get a Job then. As I s8Jd, I started doing radio when I was 13, but when 1 actually had to earn a living at it, radio ",:as in its waning years and it became increasingly difficuh to find work. Most of it went to a charmed circle of people. I did a lot of theater, too, but I was a character ingenue type since I was too tall to play the sweet little girl who got the boy. I could do a lot of voices though, so eventually I did do quite a bit of radio. But i~ got to the point where I would work one week and not the next. So I wenl back and got further accreditation and started to teach. K.D.· And what did you teach? . A.S. - Creative dramatics, which is not a preparation for theater. It's a combination of techniques used by actors which focuses primarily on communication with young people, understanding behavior and developing the personality. I did that for 14 years. K.D. - Was that In New York? A.S .• In New York, Washington and St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands. X.D. - That sounds like an Interatln. place to work. A.S. - It isn't in many respects. My husband became the Superintendent of Schools for the American Virgin Islands and I taught creative dramatics in the high school. But it's not a good place to work after coming from New York . It's a totally different lifestyle. You don' t have the same kind of thinking or energy or cultural existence you do in New York. Although, I did have a night club act while I was there and that was a lot of fun. . K.D. - What klnd of act was It? A.S. - It was called the Five of Us. We did little skits and songs - more songs than acting - it was great fun.

THE LONGBOAT OBSERVER

X.D. - You now have a radio program called "Conversations with Annette Scherman" and a man-inthe--street type show from Sarasota Square .•.• A.S. - It's all encompassed in the same show . The Focus, if there is a major focus, is on keeping the public IOformed about the arts and entertainment in the Sarasota area. FOr instance , we have each of the theater groups on preceding or during a production. We used to do reviews, but I found our listeners enjoyed hearing the discussions and excerpts from the shows. We also hav~ regular features each week. "Sarasota Speaks," which you were talking about . is one where we get a cross sect ion of opinion on varying IOpics from people at the mall. Another is "Person to Person" where we visit people in their homes. A third is the "Critic's Caucus." We have a panel of experts who dissect and discuss the films coming up on Home Box Office. X.D. - What are some of the features that you han discontinued ? A.S . - We did one from the Far Horizons. and then the Hyalt House called " Cocktails and Conversations" that was something like "Sarasota Speaks," only it was more provocative and personal. It was very successful. K.D. - Why did )'ou drop it? A.S. - It took too much time, SO we discontinued ~t; "Sarasota Speaks" is very time consuming too, but It s done at a betler time of the day for me. The various series that we now do are thoroughly enjoyable to me. We did one on divorce with men, women, children of divorced parents, psychologists and lawyers. We did another with teenagers and sex altitudes with a member of Planned Parenthood, and recently, we had one about the egalitarian marriages. K.D. - This Is probably the most obvious question I could ask you, but I'm going to ask.it anyway. Who are some of the people you' ve found to be the most interesting to talk to dolnR this show? A.S . - There are different ways to approach that question . M~st interesting because I personally have a hero or herome worship for that person is one way to look ~t ~t. Another is how open they are, how much they w:e .wIIIIl}g to expose of themselves. When a person is willing. and has the capacity to express what they feel and Ihmk, then they become interesting. The guarded person who is not willing to say what is on their mind gives a dull interview. I have had the privilege of interviewing a lot of c.elebrated people, some of whom I have a great admiration for. Sometimes you find that when you actually sit across from someone you hold in great esteem you begin 10 think, " weU they ain't so much. " Other limes they confirm your opinion of them. P.eople you .Ieast expect to be interesting turn out to be te!r~fic sometimes. Rosemary Clooney was one. She is Wllhng to open herseJr to you as if she were your best friend. K.D. - I found Joan Mondale to be that way when she was able to slip Oul or her ofncial capacity. A.S. - Yes, she is another warm person, very bright, too. I felt the same way about her. Mel Torme is another person who is very thoughtful about his answers, a very open person. I've met a lot of people, local people, who have been very interesti ng, artists and people involved in our community . X.D. - Is there anyone you have inten'iewed that sticks out In your mind as being very dlfncult to talk to? A.S. - Rob Reiner. K_D. - Rob Reiner? You would think that he would bejust the opposite. . A .~. - The first question I asked him was about his IdentIty, whether or not having a famous father like Car~ Reiner was.a difficult thing for him . He says, "1 don t have a~y difficulty with my identity," and then he ~ent on pUUlOg down the question. He continued to do It all th.rough the interview and was very negative during ~he entire thing. He just didn't want to be bothered with >t .

. Ab<,>ut t~o or three months after that Reiner did an IOtervlew with Barbara Walters and the first thing she asked was something about his identity. He went on and on about how difficult it was to.flnd himself I've talked to some really top notch peopl~, and when t~ey ~e really top notch, they know that giving interVIews ~s ~ part of what they do . Rob Reiner apparently has thiS httte petulance that I suppose is a part of him but it makes it hard to talk to the guy. ' . On the same day I talked to Reiner, I also interViewed C::h.arlton Heston . He was very warm and very open - wllhng to talk about anything and be very candid about it. K.D. - With that we had better Moses on out of here. Thank you·, Annette Scherman.

Art ~ Hodgell Hartman GallefyJack Ellis, W. Louis Jones and Lynn Gellman

Jack El.lis owned a book design studio in New York, but gave It up and moved to St. Petersburg, where he now spends all of his time working on his magical "portraits." We say "portraits" in quotations because Ellis' drawings are much more than a figure placed in a setting. Rather, they are a bold blend of patterns, visual puns, references, symbols and mythological invocations that happen to contain a human subject in what amounts to a supporting role - almost. Using a crow quill pen~ ink washes and carefully integrated collage, Ellis creates a world for his subjects that is at once real and surreal. For example, in the nearly life size self portrait called "Arco Terminal," we see the artist standing before a Romanesque colonnade wearing an orante halo, surrounded by plants, objects (a baseball, ink bottle boxes and the like) a figure with a crown of crow quill pens , and animals, most notably, Durer 's rabbit. In his hand are the tools of his trade: brushes and pens. Behind him, the blue sky is filled with fire-clouds. The artist stands calmly amidst all of this, peering at us from behind a pair of aviator glasses. The drawing took over a year to complete, we are told. It is easy to get caught up in the intricacy of the patterns, objects and minute details found in one of Ellis' drawings and forget to consider whether or not they represent good art . Some may find the artist's work to be too much like illustration , and indeed , that feeling is present in the drawings. But it is the same kind of "illustration" that is present in the allegorical drawings, paintings and prints of Albrecht Durer and Mathis Grunewald , two of the artiSlS Ellis most admires. W. Louis Jones W. Louis lones' contributions to the show are six out of what was originally a suite of 30 paintings on paper entitled "The Nautilus in Rotation." lones combines objectivity with painterly subjectivity in this series which, as the title suggests, depicts a nautilus shell slowly being rotated , picture by picture, as it rests on a simple pedestal. The shells are painted with trompe l'oeil accuracy while the background is handled with a multi-layered scumbling (dry brushing) technique. The nautilus and its immediate background are confined to a square with an irregular frame-like border of two or three colors which is placed at the top of the page. Below this are drops, blends, and splatters of several of the most dominant colors found in the square and its border. Within each painting, three levels of control (and methods of working) are displayed : the painstaking discipline and control over the medium nC'cessary to create the shells, the semi-control of the scumbling technique and finally the happy accidents of the watercolor method used fo r the color blen ~ nd splatters . "\ ...The overall effect is, of course, lost because we-see orny six of the pictures. But since the six are in sequence (with one missing) it is possible to envision what all 30 looked like together. Although it takes a bit of study to see it, the shells are shown in slightly different positions. The changes are, however, more (Contrnued on Page 11)

in the subtle vanatlOns of shadow and reflected light than in the physical rotation of the subject maner. As a group, the 30 paintings must have been impressive, but each individual painting is impressive enough on its own. Lynn Gellman The paintings of Lynn Gelfman will undoubtedly give the uninformed gallery goer the most problems. Her large abstractions are based on a loose grid system in which each square is further subdivided with a single diagonal line. The formalness of the grid is rendered less formal by the fact that the lines that create it are not ruler perfect, nor does the color confine itself to the squares borders. Gelfman doesn 't paint her canvases, she stains them on both the front and the back which reduces the amount of control over the finished piece. Again, accident blends with design. The effect is similar to what you would see looking through comred and stained cut glass. Light skips across the surface . The softened colors collide or blend , sometimes defining an edge and sometimes erasing it. It may be difficult for some people to see, but within one of Gelfman's paintings, there is much to look at.

Friedberg Galleries Lithographs by Claude Weisbuch

French anist , Claude Weisbuch, has the ability to adopt the drawing styles of old masters such as Leonardo, Rembrandt and Tiepolo, and yet maintain something of his own personality and creative vision in the prints which are based on those borrowed styles and themes. Most of the pieces in the Friedberg show are from suites that pay homage to Leonardo. The subject maner includes Leonardoesque figure studies, equest rian sketches and heads. Designs for machines, weapons and buildings show up at the edges of the sketches in the same manner they do in Leonardo's notebooks. Present too, in some instances, is the writing. In short, to some extent, Weisbuch's prints look as if they had just been pulled out of one of Leonardo's journals. Artist Ble nding Yet, when we look at the pieces in the show which have been inspired by the wonderful impromptu drawings of Rembrandt, we see a certain amount of carry-over of style from the Leonardo prints, and that style belongs to Weisbuch himself. He successfully switches from Leonardo's bold, dynamic, almost superhuman line to Rembrandts softer, more humanized scribble, but an immeasurable amount of Weisbuch seeps in to unify all of his work. The figures are Rembrandts, or they are Leonardo's, yet they aren't. The tension between the polarities creates an added interest when viewing the prints. In the less eclectic lithographs such as "Derriere Le Chevalet" and "Observers at the Easel, " the real Claude Weisbuch is more in evidence. When not adopting another artists style in particular , he seems to have absorbed the mannerisms of many to produce a personal style that is compact and nervous in some sections, and flowing and open in others. Regardless of whose style he is using, you can bet that a Weibuch print is going to demonst rate the artists mastery of the line, not to mention his virlUosiry when confronted with the fi gure. In print after print the artist demonstrates that, if nothing else, he is a first class draughtsman. The Friedberg Galleries are located at 40 16 Gulf of Mexico Drive on Longboat Key.

Picture, if you will , a thick slack of succulent , thinly sliced ham that has been topped with several sections of melted Swiss cheese and then placed on three o r four Iight-as-air French crepes . Or how abo ut those same crepes filled with crabmeat, or smoked salmon, or caviar, or spinach and cheese, or beef bourguinonne? If any of all of this sound s good. then the Cafe Prague is just the place for you. But this is morc than simply a crepe restaurant. Also on the lunch menu are an assortment of deli style sandwiches, salads, and an array o f French pastries and continental desserts that melt in you r mouth if you forget the daily calorie count and give them a try. The dinner menu includes meat, vegetable, and dessert crepes, and adds such European specialties as Wiener Schnitzel, Csirke Paprikas . Moravian Beef Goulash and Veprova-Knedlik-Zeli . For appetizers you can try Russian Egg with Potato and Caviar, AntipastO, Cod Liver and Chopped Onion, Rollmops in Sour Creme or Sardines and Onions. Also offered is a selection ofimponed and domestic beers and wines. I've eaten at this little restaurant several times over the past two years and have always found the food to be excellent , the atmosphere pleasant and the service very good . Little else needs to be said except that Cafe Prague is located at 67 Palm Avenue in SaraSOta. The hours are 11:00 to 3:00 for lunch, and 6:00 to 9:30 for dinner, Monday through Saturdays . They are closed on Sundays. For reservations call 953-3863 . I should also add that the Cafe Prague sells a variety of imported cookies, candies and other treats so you can take that taste of Europe home with you. •

November 27,1980

Beach Sand ............. (Continued from page 1) have been achieved. and the beaches along Longboat Key might then have an erosion control project aimed at the long range restoration and maintenance of the shore line. Otherwise, the Town will have to go it alone.

B.O.A. Frogress Report The BOA officials rcponed that they have most of the signatures of the beach owners along the southern end of Longboat and the Town has agreed to sponsor an Erosion Control Line. Therefore, doesn 't that mean they can get some of the spoil from New Pass bridge dredging? And since the northern end of Longboat already has an Erosion Control line, the BOA wanted to know if they have followed the proper procedure, have doued all their i's and gone through the correct channels. No Need For Erosion Control Line The answer surprised most everyone present. "You're going to get as much spoil as possible from both Passes, it will be piped as far as we can without going to additional expense and you didn 't need an Erosion Control Line at all in the first place."

LBK Will Get The Sand The men were told that the BOA was advised to organiZe, get signatures and permission, send copies to every govC':rnmental entity they could and hold a public hearing. Bill Carlton said all that was fine but not necessary since the sand will be transferred not to the beaches of Longboat, which are in private hands, but seaward of the mean high water mark, out a few hun· dred feet into the Gulf. No Problems Expected The BOA people were delighted after they fully understood the answer, especially so since they had been willing to pay the Corps privately for the "sand trans· fer" as the visitors kept referring to it. Garland said that it is not all 100'10 definite since the funding has not been approved, but he felt that there is a good chance it will be, that the work will likely start on both passes in the 3rd quarter of 1981 (the third Federal quarter, April, Mayor June) and that Longboat will be the recipient of thousands of cubic yards of the fill now clogging up the channels at New Pass and Longboat Pass.

public, but they felt that close to 50,000 cubic yards of sand will be placed on Longboat Key. Again , it will be seaward of the mean high water mark, not on the beaches, since they are privately owned. Wait For Corps Report One private beach owner asked what to do about the erosion of the sand in front of her property. Every· one has been asking about the same problem for years, but Garland suggested that the Town and private beach front owners wait for the detailed report on Longboat Key, currently being prepared by the Corps of Engineers. The report will recommend certain actions to be taken, but it will be up to the Town.

Project Turned Down Before A few years ago, the Corps proposed a restoration project for the beaches of Longboat Key but the Town turned it down since it meant carving out some public beaches, a prerequisite the Town has not yet accepted.

Give And Take Representing different areas of expertise, the men were relaxed (after they realized that the BOA was not a bunch of radicals all ready to attack them and their policies) and spoke with little of the " double talk" anticipated. One BOA official remarked that, for the first time, the group had been given simple. straight, intelligent and logical answers.

It's Up To The Town "Some day. you'll come begging," Garland said , "and ask to be included in a restoration project to save the beaches, but there will be no attempt to force the Town. It 's up to you." The inference was that if the Town would meet certain criteria, it could take part in a project that would delay but not prevent erosion of the beaches.

Corps Must Dredge At the outset, BOA member Mike Hodges questioned the fact that no public hearings had been called for on the dredging plays havoc with the adjacent shore lines. He was told by the Corps of Engineers that they are under orders to keep the passes open and that, while the speaker may be right, it is the corps' job to keep the passes Open for navigational purposes, both cammer· cial and pleasure.

Public Beaches The consensus seemed to be that for any long range help, the Town will have to open up some of the beaches . If not , the Town can establish an Erosion Can· trol District and levy local taxes to start and continue the long range restoration project on its own. Bill Carlton spoke about the groins into the Gulf that the State DNR put in 20 years ago and noted that it would have worked if the abuttors had kept the boards adjusted according to the plans. When asked what would happen if the grains were removed, he replied "probably nothing."

"Sand Transfer" Not "Project" The terminology was important in the discussions, since the word "project" was nOt completely understood. According to Garland, what the BOA was talking about is a simple "sand transfer" not a ' ''project, '' which would entail detailed engineer speci· fications. So what was thought to be a complicated creation of an Erosion Control Line and considerable cost on the part of the southern end beach owners, becomes instead a simple request for sand from the dredging, and the powers that be have agreed in principle. They did caution that most of the spoil from the south end will go to Lido Beach, which is

Both Sides Reasoning The end result of the meeting, which lasted until close to I p.m., is that the BOA and the Town have talked face to face with those in charge of dredging and beach control and found them reasonable people, something that has been doubted until Thursday. The BOA , in hosting the discussion and in being reasonable them· selves , can take a lot of credit for the progress. Now if the "public beach" problem can be solved, to th e satisfaction of the Town, the public, the BOA, the county, State and the federal government, a miracle will

Officials present at the recent BOA meeting said that the Town of Longboat Key had refused to take part in any beach nourishment plan proposed by the Corps of Engineers nearly 10 years ago. The letter to the Corps, signed by Mayor Sam Gibbon, did indeed say the "people interviewed" opposed any beach nourishment which would in effect "estab· Iish a publicly owned beach." The Mayor 's letter, which was directed by the Town Commission and which has set the tone for past relations ..... ith the Corps of Engineers is as follows: "Town of Longboat Key Aorida February 19. 1971 Mr. George Marsch Jacksonville District Corps of Engineers P.O. Box 4970 Jacksonville, Florida 32201 Re: Erosion Control. Longboat Key Dear Mr. Marsh: With further reference to my letter of February 3rd in answer to yours of January 22nd , a committee ap· pointed by the Longboat Key Town Commission has discussed the erosion control program with a repre· sentative sample of citizens o ..... ned Gulf·front property. This committee reported to the Commission at a regular meeting held Wednesday evening, February 17 , to the effect that the people interviewed were unanimous in expressing their opposition to beach nourishment which would in effect establish a publicly owned beach area seaward of their present mean high water line. The Commission instructed me to write to you that under the circumstances .....e can't see how there is any possibility of getting local acceptance of the nourish· ment plan. The Corps of Engineers is also making plans for reo dredging Longboat Pass and placing spoil off the north· west corner of Longboat Key. The Town Commission has asked me to express their hope thai these plans will be carried out so that whatever material is dredged from the Pass will serve as a stockpile for the natural littoral drift to the southward. We fully realize the can· tinuous erosion process. Very truly yours Samuel Y. Gibbon Mayor cc: Mr. L. H. Fonson, Chairman Manatee County Commissior: f'

THE LONGBOAT OBSERVER

Stri ctly Sailing by Phyllis Mabrey

Thanksgiving - that means it's time to think of Christmas. It's not too soon to plan some original gifts for the boaters on your list. Over the years we have received several unusual gifts, all welcome and showing thoughtfulness . Consider these ideas: Canvas or denim bags of all sizes are always useful to boaters. Make them or buy them to match the boat's colors and then personalize with iron-on letters. Use more iron-on letters and put the boat's name on plain T-shirts for each crew member. A medical kit is a practical gift. Make up one using bandages, aspirin, salt tablets, suntan lotion , insect repellent and tweezers. These supplies are frequently used up so replacements are welcome. You still have time to order some note-paper or napkins with the vessel's name imprinted . Most stationery stores do this. We received note paper last year and have loved seeing "Truelove" in print. I even write letters on cruise now. Embroider an inexpensive tennis hat with the boat's name on the brim and nautical designs on the crown for a one-of-a-kind gift. Another thoughtful gift is a towel or set of towels appropriately trimmed. Not only attractive but easy to identify if left in a marina or yacht club. Everyone cruising eventually makes a trip to the laundromat. You can make the chore less irksome if you give a laundry bag along with a box of detergent, a change purse of dimes and quarters and a bag of clip clothespins (for drying towels and swimsuits on the lifelines) . Add large plastic bags with self closing tops for carrying wet clothes. An elegant gift for the coffee drinker is an attractively packaged jar of instant coffee, a jar of dry cream, some individual sugar packages and paper coffee cups. Even after the coffee is gone your friends will remember the idea. Buttons pop and pants rip; a small sewing kit answers this need. In a lidded box include a good pair of scissors with the buttons, needle and thread. A little stapler for really quick repairs is a good addition. Neatly packaged foul-weather outfits are available at most discounts stores. Even the best equipped sailor can use an extra set for guests. To make a kit for showers ashore put a towel (thin ones dry faster and take up less storage space), a wash· cloth , a soap container with soap and a pair of sandals in a canvas bag. If you can find those trial size bottles or tubes of shampoo. toothpaste and deodorant put those in along with a disposable razor and a toothbrush . A foam rubber bed pillow covered with a colorful beach towel can be used for lounging in the cockpit and also covered with a pillowcase for sleeping. You'll think of more, it should be YOUR gi ft , YOUR idea. And if your non-boater friend says, "I never know what to get for you," pass this column on. We' re off with the Sun Coast Yacht Club to cruise south and around Charlotte Harbor. Happy Thanksgiving to you all. •

Editorial (The following Editorial was p rinted in lhe Observer in January, 1979 and bears repealing now thai boat registrations are overdue.) What with the Red Tide. the heat, trips out of state and the usual business of summer, your publisher fo rgot to renew his registration on his outboard equipped boat. Nothing really c r iminal. just an active "forgetter". So when we went out in Buttonwood Harbor one Sunday afternoon in September, who should be there but the Florida Marine Patrol. As we passed, we waved to them, and they to us, and then we noticed they turned around, followed us. flashed the blue light, turned on the siren, and pulled us over to the curb. or what passes as a cu rb near the "A" marker .

Criminal Charges Judge Sllverman pointed out first that the people in court were facing criminal charges. This was a bit of a jolt. Then he stated thai if you plead guilty or nolo, the case could be disposed of the same day. If you pleaded not-guilty, you could request a jury or non jury trial, and he Stressed your rights and the rights of the state. If you were found guilty or if you pleaded nolo, the Judge could then impose a fine, and you would then have 10 pay it (cash please, no checks) plus S12 Court costs and a 50/0 charge for what I understand to be the "crime compensation fund". The laller seemed like a good idea in theory but its implementation questionable when applied to a boat registration .

Scars and Tattoos? Out came the attache case and the qUestions, all \"ery business like, efficient, and polite. But when it came to telling them how many scars and tattoos I had on my upper body, as it asks on the form, I figured that while I don't have any tattoos, I do have some. sca rs. But since each one is small and has its own personal history, I figured it was no ones' business but mine, so I lied and said "none". hoping they didn't SpOt the I/o inch football scar over my eye, nearly hidden by my white hair, or the Iii inch scar on my right arm. I can't even remember how I got that o ne.

How Do You Plead? For about 15 minutes, the judge heard various cases: Unlicensed dogs. welfare fraud, bad checks, then Case No. 78-1311 -09-Ml , The State of Florida vs . Ralph B. Hunter. How do you plead? The judge said 1 couldn't say a word if , pleaded guilty, and I didn't want a jury trial, so I said "nolo" and asked him if the charges against me were really of a crimi nal nature. He stated that from a strict legal point , they were, so I pleaded guilty and awaited the fine. "Twenty-five dollars" plus court costs, plus the 50/D. Grand total: $38.25.

Mea Culpa Age, birthplace, eyes, social security number, weight, description of boat, motor, hair color, all very normal questions ... I guess . We found the officers so nice, we admitted we were wrong, were guilty of "operating a motor boat without a current registration" and asked them how, where and when we paid our fi ne. Nothing quite so simple. Possibly due to the smuggling of "controlled substances" in inland Florida waters, the Floric!a Marine Patrol lias little choice but to write a citation . No argument there, either. To Court You Go But ... unlike a time when we were a day over on our auto registration or inspection (I do have a habit of forgetting) and were told to get it renewed within 48 hours or go to court, this time it's go to COUTI. After signing my name that "I agree to appear to answer the offense charged or to pay the fine subscri bed", I drove into Sarasota (they caught us 100

Was It All That Serious? I can see where the time and paperwork of all concerned was worth it all, but as a taxpayer, I still wonder if it all was really necessary. In any case, couldn't a boat owner be given 48 hours to get his registration renewed before the legal juggernaut starts roiling? •

Courtroom A Coun day was in October in Sarasota, Court Room A, Judge Marvin E. Silverman presiding. The time scheduled was 9:30 a.m . and the Judge directed all those assembled to plead Guilty, Not Guilty, or Nolo (which every Latin student knows as nolo contendere). Then he told o f the consequences of each. and of the constitutional rights of all persons charged . Quite a lesson in rights and responsibilities and a most refreshing welcome to the impersonal bearing of many judges and civil servants.

Pistols At The Ready Two very polite officers, their .45 calibre pistols at the ready, asked us for our registration, which we then remem bered we had neglected to renew. Officers Rogers and Klohn, then asked us to follow them. Fo rtunately the motor started and off we wem to an area out of the way where they anchored and asked us to pull along 'side . Luckily they did no! judge us by our seamanship during that delicate manoeu vre.

Again ... not quite so simple. One must go to the Sheriff's Office and POSt bond of close to S30 if one does nOI wish to go to court. We hadn ' t realized what a menace to society we were.

Jack Slack ..... ..... .. . (Continued tram pag!! 2) Along with Connecticut-based General Defense , investors are looking again at companies such as New H ampshire's Sanders Associates, Atlanta Research, Thiokol and Loral Corp. to name just a fe w. There are man y more, most are not well known, but Ihey are in vital areas (hat should become more profitable as the nation moves to rebuild its military strength. General Defense was once a pan of Gulf & Western and is a recenl spin-off from Clabir Corp. It is small, sales last year were only $55 million, but it sports a reasonable price earnings ratio of about 12 times its last 12 months earnings ofSl.70 per share. Analysts think the company's sales could expand to $72 million this year but, as its market grows, gains in future years could be remarkable. The company is the dominant supplier of ordnance for Army tanks, and is the principal development contractor for project iles for the present fleet of about 14,000 tanks. The present budget for tank ammunition is about 5150 million and this market is seen expanding to about S500 million over the next five years . The market is beginning to discover second-tier stocks such as General Defense, and so the bargains aren't likely to remain neglected much longer. Investors who are still shell-shocked from the drubbing that was taken in these stocks during the late 60's , early 70's, may find it hard to turn their attention back to defen se issues. But that shouldn 't be a reason to overlook the profit possibilities the group is offering now. A fter all, when it comes to investing, the name of the game is still to take advantage of opportunity. And if you've been burned in the past, don't get mad _ get even. •

NOW HEAR THIS! Effective January I, 198 1, all boats 16 feet or more must carry certain distress signals approved by the U.S . Coast Guard. The entire amendment to 33CFRI75 fills a page of small print so we are unable to give you all of the details, but suggest that you contact your marina operator or a Coast Guard Auxiliarist to determine if your equip· ment now being used may qualify until July I, 1982 if such equipment is in good and serviceable condition. Any of the following signals , when carried in the number required, can be used to meet the requirements of the amendment: Floating Orange Smoke (3 required), Pistol Parachute Red Flare (3), Hand· held Parachute Red Flare (3), Hand·Held Orange Smoke (3), Floating Orange Smoke (3), Red Aerial Pyrotechnic (3), Orange Flag (I), Electric Distress Light (I). Most marinas have all of the above and the Marina, where I keep my boat, suggests their Sky· blazer pack as it meets all day and night regulations regardless of length and conditions.

•••

It is getting that time of year when the new Coast Guard Auxiliary decals are ready and your Longboat Flotilla urges all boaters to take advantage of the Courtesy Marine Examination given by Auxiliarists without charge or obligation . Thvexami nation can be at your· own dock or at your marina. The owner must be present and if his vessel doesn't measure up to Coast Guard requirements, no report is made by the Auxiliary and a second examination can be arranged when the o ....ner corrects the problem. Many boaters have their vessels examined every year and rightfuHy believe it is the best wa\' to double check their boat for safety . The 1981 decals' will be ready soon and we suggest you call Howard Kaseberg at 388·4056 for an appointment. •
