The "Forgetful Four" barbershop quartet dropped by the Holmes Beach Barber Shop this week to promote their "Singing Valentine" offer and serenaded patrons with "Heart of My Heart." As members of the Gulfcoast Sandpiper Barbershop Chorus, the local barbershop singers and other quartets are offering to deliver two songs and a box of chocolates for $40 on Feb. 12 or Feb. 14. Singing here are baritone Tom Lennon, bass Harvey Baird, lead Charley Caniff and tenor Will Little. Barber Don Madden, left, and Larry Michalski carry out their work in the foreground.

Dirt flies at Anna Maria Elementary School By Diana Bogan. Islander Reporter
The dirt finally started flying at Anna Maria Elementary School as students, staff, neighbors and district representatives celebrated the official start of construction at the Island campus.
Construction of the berm on the Anna Maria shoreline between 755 and 761 North Shore Drive began last week as crews from the Huffman Trucking Co. of Bradenton began dumping material for the berm. The berm is being funded through an emergency Federal Emergency Management Agency program. Islander Photo: Rick Catlin
