From left, Naples City Council member and County Coastal Advisory Committee board member John Sorey, Naples’ David Crooks, and Ron Pennington, chairman of the County Coastal Advisory Committee, pass booster pumps Thursday in the water off the coast of Naples that are helping to pump sand from Captiva Island to beaches in Naples as part of the beach renourishment project. The project currently must be finished by May 1, but if the Department of Environmental Protection permits an extension, the cutoff will be into the sea turtle nesting season in June.
