To the Editor:
The organizers of the 2011 Gasparilla Island Fishing Tournament would like to thank the area merchants and guides who made this year’s tournament a success.
To the Editor: In the summer of 2008, local guides and anglers met with the simple goal of identifying science-based projects, which would preserve our tarpon population and avoid collapses similar to those in Port Aransas, Texas and Homasassa. We decided that funding satellite tags was an effective first step.
The Community Project Committee of the Planters Garden Club wanted to give a gift to the community in honor of one of our co-founders – Anna Bowditch – who was devoted to many island interests and activities.
I’m in agreement with Becky, regarding the electronic speed indicater on Gasparilla Road. First, it’s ugly; 2nd, it is in constant broken status; 3rd, it smacks of “Big Brother.”
It is time to remove the obnoxious and insulting speed indicator sign.
