On Feb. 23, 1945, after four days of brutal warfare, six U.S. Marines raised the first American flag on Mount Suribachi. The month-long battle was a crucial battle in the victory over Japan for the allied forces. Over 6,800 Americans were killed and 20,000 injured. Longboat Key resident Marty Samowitz, 97, is the oldest living Marine survivor of Iwo Jima. On Feb 23., the Veteran spoke to Kiwanis Club of Longboat Key about his experience at the Key Club’s Tavern. He also discussed what it was like to run Marty’s Shoes. They awarded him a certificate for his service.

On March 14, St. Armands circle will be bustling with buskers, or live street performers that play for gratuity. A handful of these potential contracted performers auditioned at Circle Park on Feb. 22 for their chance. The Garbage Men, a teenage rock ensemble playing Beatles covers with instruments they made from trash, auditioned. Jesse Lippert played a classical guitar version of Fir Elise. “White Man” Statue, Ralph Longshore, broke his statue character to play guitar and sing a few bars, and then retuned to statue state. There was also Dr. Nik and his guitar playing chicken. Coming full circle, artist Bill Drugan displayed his talents at drawing caricatures.

St. Armands didn’t have the usual Mardi Gras parade this year. But leave it to the Lynch sisters to throw the alternative party. On Feb. 21, Mardi Gras, Lynches Pub and Grub was decked with purple and yellow balloons, employees with feathered hats and patrons with masks. And there was no shortage of beads, either. The sisters served complimentary pancakes, per tradition, and Joe Bruno’s Dixieland Hot Dogs band played crowd favorites, such as “Pennis from Heaven.”
