Ringling Shopping Center-Publix, Green Stamps Merchandise Store, Center Shoe Repair, Grant's Bakery, Jimmy Crews Barber Shop, Crowder Bros. I remember my first visit to 'Heidelberg' seeing the trampoline in the middle of the restaurant and the swings hanging from the ceiling.
SRQ airport- Plane on the tarmack, exiting on a ladder mounted on a pickup truck or a 727 exiting the rear on the drop down stairs [rain or shine] , walking thru the small tin roof building picking up baggage on a table outside. Spent many evenings at the MelOdee in the 70's when we stayed in a motel on the north Trail. Bee Ridge Rd-Cattlemen Rd when both roads were single lane controlled by stop signs on Cattlemen. Here's a picture of The Islander newspaper, which my father owned in the 1960's and 70's and sold to the New York Times in the 1980's. Gulf Park Oar House on Bradenton Beach, Fishing lodge built about 1909, burned down around 1979.
My grandpa took this picture of the ferry from Tampa to Bradenton, before the Sunshine Skyway.
Fire crews from the West Manatee Fire and Rescue District along with assistance from Longboat Key firefighters battle the Feb. Roger Phillips along with children Brooke and James found temporary shelter at a local hotel through the American Red Cross after a Feb. Mike Bugel, left, treasurer of the West Manatee Firefighter's Association, presents Sherry Phillips, right, the victim of an apartment fire Feb.
Sherry Phillips, holding the youngest of her four children, either unwilling or unable to view the scene of her apartment on fire behind her, stands by her car parked next to Sharky's restaurant. Moving to Bradenton Beach two weeks ago was supposed to be a new beginning for Roger and Sherry Phillips and their four young children.
The family had spent the past five years in Apollo Beach, but decided on the Island when Roger's employer last month assigned him to work temporarily at a Lido Beach restaurant the company owns. Roger was suspended from his job as a traveling chef with the Rack, Shack and Binion Restaurant Corp. The two oldest children attend Anna Maria Elementary School while the other children stay at home with mom. The West Manatee Firefighter's Association, an organization of career firefighters, made a $1,500 cash donation to the family and also collected toys and clothing that they are holding until the Phillipses are relocated. Sherry said the family can probably stay at a motel for a few more days, but the Red Cross can't keep paying for the rooms. The Islander newspaper has established a fund to help the Phillips family get resettled on Anna Maria Island, and keep their children at Anna Maria Elementary. Anyone interested in making a donation to help the Phillipses, or who has a vacant apartment, can contact publisher Bonner Joy at The Islander. The Phillipses especially need children's clothing, toys, furniture, appliances and an apartment.


Please submit my "say" to the printed paper (full name, address, phone number are required for publication, although only name and city of residence are published in the print edition. The Anna Maria Island Community Center may have a way to honor its “burn the mortgage” slogan and generate some much-needed revenue for the center. Allowing a cell tower on the property could generate as much as $72,000 in annual revenue, if not more, and the center could receive a payment of $150,000 when the cell tower begins sending carrier signals. Two companies met with the center’s ad hoc communications committee April 8, and one company proposed the center a lump sum payment of $150,000 the day the cell tower becomes operational. Ridan Industries of Tampa, in partnership with Alpha-Omega Communications of Longboat Key, made the offer if the center contracts with Ridan to build a tower on center property. Kevin Barile of Ridan said that, in addition to the $150,000, the company would pay the center $1,000 a month to lease the required space, or 20 percent of the monthly gross revenues, whichever is greater. James Eatrides of Alpha-Omega estimated it would take 12-18 months after signing a contract for the cell tower to be constructed and operational. The proposed 150-foot tower would look like a flag pole and be able to handle six cell phone carriers and equipment.
Attorney Stacey Frank, who owns a home in Anna Maria, also presented a proposal to the committee. She formed F&L Towers LLC several years ago as she sought to move away from corporate law.
Her proposal for the center was based upon revenue sharing, a straight lease or a combination of the two. F&L Towers leases space from a property owner such as the community center, builds a tower, then seeks carriers to fill the available spaces on the tower, she said. Frank estimated a cell tower at the center with just one carrier would generate a minimum of $1,200 per month for the center, based upon a 50 percent split of the gross revenues. With six carriers operating, “that’s a significant source of revenue for the center,” Frank said.
Additionally, “escalators” could be written into the lease to increase the center’s share as carriers generate more revenue. As a good faith gesture, Frank would provide a $25,000 deposit if the center signs a contract with her company. Committee members will present a report to the center’s executive committee for discussion. Several years ago, the board considered a cell tower offer, but major donors responded that if a cell tower were built at the center, their donations would dry up. In current economic hard times, however, the non-profit center faces some financial difficulties.
Because of the mortgage on the $4.5 million center facility that opened in 2007, fees at the center were increased. A revenue stream of $72,000 a year, or a lump sum of $150,000 plus a percentage of the monthly gross might go a long way toward solving the center’s financial issues, one board member indicated, including burning the mortgage.

He was at the medieval Fair every year along with countless other fairs and festivals throughout Sarasota.


It used to cost $2 and now it cost nearly $20 My parents used to dress me up like a doll and bring me here. He was in all the local parades and he had a show on Saturday afternoons called Creature Feature.
I think I have a few pictures that my grandpa took of the circus coming over the south Venice bridge. That's me in the princess outfit and my brother on the right and a friends of his on the left.
10, $1,500 and some children's clothing, shoes and toys collected by firefighters to help her family of seven get back on their feet. Ed Chiles, owner of the Sandbar restaurant in Anna Maria and Beach House Restaurant in Bradenton Beach, donated meals to the family this past weekend. The Red Cross is looking to see if they can provide a portion of the funds to get the family settled.
The two-story duplex is owned by Anton Lulgjuri and is directly behind Sharkey's Restaurant, which Lulgjuri also owns. We want this to be a win, win, win, win situation for the community, the center, the carriers and us,” Barile said.
Those towers generated $316,000 last year for the district, based on 11 cell towers at various schools.
Some area residents on fixed incomes have said they could no longer afford to use the center. May be I have to ask the shareholders of the company, because they will probably acclaim to the investment and they will profit of it! May be these devices are the only reasonable solution to the so-called miserable cell phone connections on the northern part of the Island. Christine Alderman, center, resides with the Phillipses and helps care for the young children, including 4-year-old James.
10 when an apparent electrical fire destroyed their new apartment along with all their clothes and possessions. They don't understand that a fire destoyed the toys and everything else we had," James said with a shrug. We just have to pray and get through this," he said, noting that the only personal item that survived the fire was a family bible that he's had for years.
I think Shenkel's was later turned into The Poseidon and I believe the building was finally torn down.
And additionally, the company would pay for all the installations, for the power lines and for the power house feeding the metal piece with lots of energy.
Some disguise which resembles to something like a palm tree or so and not to just a simple metal peace on a light pole. On the basis of these numbers you may imagine why no reasonable human being wants to reside close to an active cell tower.
