Poll Question: Do you think that Florida craft brewers should be able to sell the industry standard 64 oz. draft, "to-go" bottles of beer called "growlers" like 47 other state currently allow, especially considering they're already allowed to sell larger or smaller bottles, such at quarts and gallons.

Bay Life Preservers to Stage Boat Brigade in Opposition of Long Bar Pointe Development

Published Thursday, July 18, 2013

BRADENTON – The Bay Life Preservers, a group organized in opposition of the proposed marina/hotel addition to the controversial Long Bar Pointe development is organizing a boat brigade, where flotillas full of concerned citizens will turn out to show their support for protecting Sarasota Bay from the impact of such a project. The event will take place July 20, from 2-4 p.m off Marker 17 in NE Sarasota Bay.

 

Originally scheduled for the week prior, the group said that it learned that the date coincided with the DeSoto Fishing Tournament, whose master anglers wanted to join the protest. "Long Bar Pointe is their fishing ground and they deserve all the right of access they need to enjoy their sport," said a spokesperson for the group. "Unlike Big Development, we respect fishermen."
