Merry Christmas in July — NOT

With the summer version of the winter holiday just a week away, the  nonprofit Anna Maria Island Privateers, sponsors of the annual Christmas Parade and Party for kids among other events, got news July 11 of a lawsuit filed in county court by former member Rick Maddox. The suit alleges the Privateers were lent a trailer valued at $4,500 — the Santa sleigh — by Maddox, and either failed or refused to return it. Islander File Photo
