Shooter Mary Ann Bozzetti of Bradenton says she had a hand of bananas ripening on her porch and when she went to pick a few for her breakfast, "I found my Prince waiting for me." The result, titled "My Prince" by Bozzetti, is the third weekly winner in The Islander's Top Notch photo contest. Weekly winners in the eight-week contest receive a coveted "More Than a Mullet Wrapper" Islander T-shirt and $50 from the newspaper. The photo will now go into a pool with other weekly winners eligible for the contest grand-prize package, including $100 from The Islander and a variety of gift certificates.
