  • Letter to the Editor: Opposes senate resolution 410 Published 4/24/2014 at 9:33 a.m. 0 comments

    I join members of the Pax Turcica Institute of America to strongly oppose senate resolution 410 recently introduced in Congress. Millions of Ottoman citizens of ethnic Turkish, Kurdish, Armenian, and other backgrounds perished in World War I. But as stated ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Going on record with my (Marriott Plan) thoughts Published 4/22/2014 at 6:00 a.m. 6 comments

    To begin, I am not in favor of granting additional amendments requiring cumbersome city public monitoring to manage changes to the existing, approved 2001 Marriott PUD simply to maximize private commercial profit margins. This is a small island, yet many ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Camping at the Y keeps youth moving, learning and exploring all summer long Published 4/15/2014 at 6:00 a.m. 0 comments

    Keep moving today for a healthier, well-balanced family tomorrow. Did You Know: according to the New England Journal of Medicine today’s young people are not expected to outlive their parents. This is a startling statistic and is mostly related to ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Marriott’s ‘expansion’ Published 4/15/2014 at 6:00 a.m. 16 comments

    Interesting how the Marriott management team now refers to the once proposed “convention center” now as simply “expansion.” Marco Island taxpayers have been deceived before by developers and this “expansion” is no different. A simple question that the Marco City ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Now’s the time to be known Published 4/11/2014 at 6:00 a.m. 3 comments

    Well council now has received bids for the construction of the new Smokehouse Bay Bridge – and they are looking at beginning construction June 1. Not much time to make some critical decisions. Yes they can decide which bid to ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Supports the Marriott expansion Published 4/11/2014 at 6:00 a.m. 28 comments

    My wife and I have lived on South Collier Boulevard between the Marriott and the Hilton hotels, year round, for the past 18 years. I travel that road a minimum of twice a day year round (over 700 times per ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Where are the supporters? Published 4/8/2014 at 6:00 a.m. 8 comments

    We are tired of the naysayers. Where are the supporters of the Marriott? Do those opposed to an enlarged conference center and additional rooms think that “fewer” or “no more” people will make our island better? In our 25-plus years ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Killing the golden goose Published 4/4/2014 at 6:00 a.m. 11 comments

    Our Marco Island City Council and Planning Board are freshly sitting on the “Golden Goose.” Now the question is: Will they kill it? First you allowed the golf course – against the will of MICA. Now the Marriott wants more ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Three cheers for our Planning Board Published 4/4/2014 at 6:00 a.m. 3 comments

    A loud “three cheers” for a job well done have been earned by Marco Island’s Planning Board at its recent March meetings. The board’s thorough and continuing analysis of Marriott’s petition to expand its original 2001 PUD has been admirable. ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Does anyone else see irony here? Published 4/3/2014 at 12:07 p.m. 14 comments

    A considerable amount of space in the April 1 Eagle was devoted to the ongoing parking issues on our island. Immediate solutions did not pop out of the discussions at the latest meeting. I hope the goal is to not ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Expansion insight Published 4/1/2014 at 6:00 a.m. 4 comments

    Congratulations to Bill Trotter for voicing a very real concern – once the Marriott has the proposed structure, what will go on there? The smart money is – whatever they want. And congratulations to Charlotte Roman who voiced the hearts ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Big problems with big business Published 4/1/2014 at 6:00 a.m. 4 comments

    The islands present infrastructure will be very hard pressed to handle an increase in traffic volume. The Marriott and the real estate interests have no real concern on the effects of traffic oversaturation. Their greed has overshadowed the rights of ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Changing Marco Island forever Published 4/1/2014 at 6:00 a.m. 2 comments

    Dear Marco Island Planning Board: It is not about the one or two years of inconveniences that will occur during the construction while the expansion takes place. It is about the eternal change of Marco Island’s serenity if this huge ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Why the dig on fly fishing? Published 3/28/2014 at 6:00 a.m. 1 comment

    Dear Captain, why the dig on fly fishing? (On The Hook, March 21, Marco Eagle)If your client had been a spin fisherman tossing a rapala off the bow of your boat would you have dished on him? I’ve never met ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Environmental impact Published 3/28/2014 at 6:00 a.m. 7 comments

    While traffic and parking are receiving the bulk of coverage and discussion surrounding Marriott/Mass Mutual’s request for amendment to their 2001 PUD, the issue of environmental impact seems to have burrowed its head in the sand. Granting all of Marriott/Mass ...
