    the noise issue ordinance has gone crazy on anna maria. for years I walked on the beach by the sandbar and was blessed with the music.Its an Island. the people who visit keep the island going. I wish someone would make wireless headphones. If you ate dinner, you would have headphones for the rest of the night. If you had a beer, there would be a slight charge. You could change the volumn of your own headphones.No one walking by or watching t.v. in their homes would hear it. They would miss steel drums, music of anna maria,the stuff our island is made of. they would end up yelling about that isn’t free. businesses pay for it, people come to hear it. I think this is a good idea.A silent island with the exception of people who came to enjoy the atmosphere. It would probably pay for the bands.
