SARASOTA, FL (WWSB) - A new ferry service on the Suncoast is looking more and more like a done deal. The Sarasota Bradenton Ferry has now been approved and will hopefully cut down on traffic. The drive between Sarasota and Anna Maria Island can take about 35 to 40 minutes without traffic, but the commute is expected to take just 28 minutes on the water.

Authorities are still searching for answers in the death of 82-year-old Zelma Huddleston in her Bradenton home on 3rd Avenue West.  Her daughter discovered her bloodied body Tuesday morning.  Her neighbor 55-year-old Misty Whiteley has been charged with second degree murder in her death.
