A 54-year-old male sex offender registered a temporary Bradenton Beach address.

The man reported residing in the 1800 block of Gulf Drive North July 15, according to a Florida Department of Law Enforcement report.

He was convicted in April 2011 of possessing child-related sexually abusive material in Macomb County, Michigan.

The FDLE registry shows other sex offenders in the area as of July 17:

  • A 57-year-old male offender in the 4200 block of the 129th Street West in Cortez.
  • A 54-year-old male offender in the 100 block of Crescent Drive in Anna Maria.
  • A 61-year-old male offender in the 100 block of Ninth Street North in Bradenton Beach.

For the record

Sex offenders must register permanent and temporary addresses with the sheriff in the county where he or she resides, as well as transient locations, unless otherwise ordered by a court.

    I have to say between reading about the excessive but believable amount of police equipment required to address crime in Holmes Beach and a new sex offender nearby I was feeling discouraged. Then I read the police reports! OMG. I skimmed a couple more feature articles regarding crimes and recalled another in last week’s edition and ended with the sunshine law violation convictions in Bradenton Beach. What has happened to our safe, quiet little island!! ?? I hope those who greedily turned us into a transient tourist destination at the expense of a once viable, safe, family friendly, livable community are happy. Why anyone other than unsuspecting victims or criminals would want to come here now is a mystery to me. Anyone who seriously thinks things haven’t changed by far for the worse around here and believes all is hunky dory, as a county commissioner recently claimed on social media, is either living in lala land or has joined the greedy exploiters or both. I truly feel sick about the condition we are in and the apathy that allows the downhill slide to continue at an alarming rate. Raising a family here would be a daunting and unsafe challenge which I guess is what the TDC is ok with. Thank you Manatee County for your ignorance and blatant and ongoing destruction of what was once the best thing you had going for you.

      Everything — and I mean everything — I came here for in 1975 is still here. And I love AMI. And I love that my kids were raised “on the beach” and had a great community school to attend. Maybe you could try my rose-colored glasses to obtain a better outlook. Glass half empty? Fill ‘er up with Kook-Aid. — Bonner
