Subject: BB recall of Mayor
Comments: So by reading the biased article printed in this publication it looks like it will be at minimum 5-6 months before a recall election could take place. Let's see the regular election takes place in 11 months. Someone is sure being free with Bradenton Beach taxpayer money. Clarke must really wants the Mayorship of Bradenton Beach as an incumbent.

Comments: We have spent a few months at Anna Maria in the last three years and will be returning for Christmas vacation with our children and grandchildren. Looking forward to using the Little Free Library. Glad you allowed them on the island.

Subject: Correction to previous comment
Comments: As I hold myself to a standard of not disseminating misinformation ( a standard to which this weekly publication does not adhere to), the former City Clerk was jailed after she was fired by the City of Bradenton Beach.

Subject: BB forfeiture against Mayor Shearon
Comments: Clarke wants Mayor Shearon to recuse himself because he is the subject of the proceedings, but Clarke doesn't feel he should recuse himself? I guess he feels it is okay for him to serve as plaintiff, prosecutor, judge and juror? Has his grab for power robbed him of any shred of rational thought? Oh, and by the way, he evidently thought it would be reasonable to accept legal counsel from the attorney in the audience who is both suing the City and the Mayor - where is his head at. . . never mind, I know where it is. It is undeniable what Clarke's aspirations are. Mr. Clarke is an embarrassment to the City of Bradenton Beach and making a MOCKERY of how municipal government should work.We had current employees that have filed unsubstantiated claims of harrassment now we have an EEOC complaint by a former employee that was fired because she was jailed. Can any normal person see a pattern here and who is counseling these employees to file these types of claims?

Comments: Just check and see who benefits from all of these rentals. Check their names with SUNBIZ. Then see who registered as a hotel and who didn't enforce the current rules. Let the police department make arrests and issue tickets. Move on with this the cats already out of the box.

Subject: 4 way stop sign
Comments: As an 11 year bike- riding resident of Holmes Beach, I have had issues with the 4 way stop sign on the corner of 56th and Holmes Blvd. but never thought to complain until now. This past Saturday night my neighbors dog was hit and killed by someone who ran that stop sign on Holmes Blvd and didn't have the decency to stop. Shame on them. My point?: maybe the city should install one of those "Stop for Pedestrian" signs in the middle of the road -- you might get someone to actually STOP!

Subject: Mayor sues his own city
Comments: Why are these meetings being held in the morning? 10am? Really? Most folks are at work! Just another way for the Commission to continue to disrespect the voters! Why aren't you holding these meetings at 6 or 7pm Commissioners? what are you afraid of?

Subject: amazing help from managers at white sands beach resort florida
Comments: My husband had a heart attack whilst we were on holiday from England on the 17th October 2014.
He was rushed into Blake memorial Bradenton. The amazing surgeon Mr Alesnic performed a triple heart bye pass and thank the Lord he is recovering well on this beautiful island which we have been visiting for the past 20 years.
I cannot think how we would have coped without the help and support of two amazing brothers Ken and Jeff Gerry. They had everything I would need to nurse my husband back to good health. Blood pressure monitor, thermometer, bathroom scales, raiser for toilet and chair for the bath to shower my husband in place for when we returned from Blake medical Centre
Add to this the times they have run us to hospital and doctors surgery appointments(45 min run to near i75)as I do not drive here.They are truly wonderful young men and a great credit to the resort of Anna Maria Island. Such kindness at such a stressful lonely moment leaves me speechless.
Our grateful thanks go to these two wonderful young men, and the wonderful Dr Alesnik at Blake Hospital.
Thank you Ken and Jeff Gerry, The White Sands Beach Resort. Holmes beach Florida.
May God Bless you both.
Shelley and Roy Christopher. England.
