  • Letter to the Editor: Community support gaining momentum for Mackle Park Community Center expansion Published 2/28/2014 at 3:00 a.m. 3 comments

    In December of last year, the City of Marco Island Parks & Recreation Advisory Committee developed a strategic informational plan to take the proposed Mackle Park Community Center expansion plan out to the public. To date, committee members have been ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Against Marriott expansion Published 2/27/2014 at 6:00 a.m. 2 comments

    I’m pretty sure God did not create the Gulf of Mexico so the Marriott could improve its bottom line and be a leader in the “incentive travel” industry. What’s wrong with building the convention center in Hammock Bay? It is, ...

  • Letter to the Editor: A convention-like atmosphere Published 2/25/2014 at 6:00 a.m. 0 comments

    A feature included in the Marriott renovation plan which is seldom explored in detail is the major expansion of their “exhibit area,” into an enormous “convention-like” space, capable of displaying a wide variety of products. Marriott’s ability to market the ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Not for long Published 2/25/2014 at 6:00 a.m. 0 comments

    Marco Island, fourth in the world, first in the U.S. – not for long. Trip Advisor just released the ratings showing that Marco is the number four vacation island in the world and first in the U.S., totally beating out ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Supporting Florida Medicaid expansion Published 2/25/2014 at 6:00 a.m. 0 comments

    Why Not? If we don’t, our Florida tax dollars go to other states. Why not make getting Healthcare Coverage easier in the State that has the most senior population that would benefit from it? It’s time for Florida Legislators to ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Hold Marriott to their promise Published 2/18/2014 at 6:00 a.m. 1 comment

    Traffic on Marco is worse than ever and with 1,800 homes still to be built it is not going to improve. We who live here must wake up and look at the facts closely. Just for argument take 500 companies ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Wake up and be heard Published 2/18/2014 at 6:00 a.m. 5 comments

    This is not a done deal. The Mackle Brothers (original developers) sold us all a long term master plan for Marco Island where residents, tourists, and business owners would thrive within a residential island community. I first set foot on ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Against Marriott expansion Published 2/13/2014 at 12:42 p.m. 9 comments

    I write as a part-time resident of Marco Island, our family having owned our residence for over 36 years. We abut directly with the east side of the Marriott property, and are one of the 12 properties most directly affected ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Marco Island or Marriott Island? Published 2/13/2014 at 12:40 p.m. 5 comments

    “Marco Island or Marriott Island?” That is the only question demanding an immediate answer by every citizen and our City Council today including all of its appointed boards, representative lobbies and active interest groups. In brief, what does our community’s ...

    The Marriott Hotel Resort & Spa is embarking on a public campaign to inform the folks as to the benefits and need to expand its facilities to meet the market of the 21st century. The expansion will add more conference/meeting ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Where are our remaining councilors? Published 2/7/2014 at 6:00 a.m. 2 comments

    I’m very glad to see that Larry Sacher has already conducted his first “Coffee with the Councilor” with great success. More people attended that coffee than normally attend the City Council meetings, which shows that people really are interested and ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Good samaritians pay grocery bill Published 2/3/2014 at 2:58 p.m. 1 comment

    Once again, Marco Island has proven to me why we call it paradise. This island is filled with angels. I meet two of them the other evening as I stood at one local market’s registers, only to discover my purse ...

  • Letter to the Editor: No investigation a mistake Published 1/31/2014 at 6:00 a.m. 1 comment

    In my opinion, Marco’s city council committed a serious mistake. When temporary city manager Polanco, having no previous city managerial experience and barely some 90 days “on the job” fired a veteran city employee for alleged misconduct, I believe the ...

  • Letter to the Editor: On the ‘branding’ of Marco Island Published 1/31/2014 at 6:00 a.m. 3 comments

    Congratulations and best wishes for success to newly elected 2014 President Jacquie Koon of the Marco Island Chamber of Commerce. All Marco Islanders should proudly endorse and advertise her inaugural mantra delivered to her Chamber members – “Brand yourself or ...

  • Letter to the Editor: Marriott – on the proposal and the trucks Published 1/24/2014 at 6:00 a.m. 43 comments

    Trucks, trucks, trucks will become a serious short and long term problem for Marco Island if Marriott renovates its beach resort as proposed. The initial, short term, truck problem would commence with the construction phase and continue until its final ...
