People who abuse prescription drugs can't get them filled at CVS or Walgreens because these large chains belong to a network that tracks drug purchases. These chain stores won't sell prescription drugs to individuals who fit a pattern demonstrating abuse. Individuals who abuse prescription drugs have to keep finding doctors who will write the prescription (doesn't matter if it's an emergency room or a 24/7 health center), and they have to find a drug store that will fill the prescription. That's where the mom-and-pop drugstores fill the need; they are not on a network like the large chains, and end up filling prescriptions that are abused. Was Island Drug victimized by these individuals who go to great lengths to get drugs? I don't know. But when individuals come from off-island to pick up prescription drugs, one has to wonder. I suspect someone dropped-a-dime and Chief Carr caught on.
Hey Herzilli (or whoever you happen to be), what is with the censorship?? Your comments get posted and you have the Marco Times remove the comments you don't like?? You have a real thin skin don't you? You throw a lot of rocks but live in a glass mansion. You are truly an example of everything that is wrong with this country.
What a waste of genetic material you are; why don't you check into a hospital and donate some organs?

Gee, Dumbrovnik, you're starting to write like a normal person! What happened to the intellectually-challenged persona we usually get under this label from your handler? Did it forget who it was logged in as when it had its brain-drizzle??
Throat_Yogurt signs up today for the first time to post to this blog and this is what he writes? What happened to the monitoring by Marco News? Throat_Yogurt, you are pathetic.
I'm sure you could recommend several shrinks; anyone who reads your comments will believe that when you're not being a troll on this website you're in some shrinks couch trying to get help.
I feel sorry for your dog
What is there to argue about? You are unable to write anything relevant.
"Trolls are sad people, living their lonely lives vicariously through those they see as strong and successful.
Disrupting a stable newsgroup gives the illusion of power, just as for a few, stalking a strong person allows them to think they are strong, too.
For trolls, any response is 'recognition'; they are unable to distinguish between irritation and admiration; their ego grows directly in proportion to the response, regardless of the form or content of that response.
Trolls, rather surprisingly, dispute this, claiming that it's a game or joke; this merely confirms the diagnosis; how sad do you have to be to find such mind-numbingly trivial timewasting to be funny?
Remember that trolls are cowards; they'll usually post just enough to get an argument going, then sit back and count the responses (Yes, that's what they do!)."
Klabautermoron/MarcoIslandWomoron = Internet Troll!
1. Klabautermoron/MarcoIslandWombat = Internet Troll!
The senseless rants continue from Klabberzilli, too!
Northerner, take everything you read in this blog with a grain of salt. There is more fiction in this blog than in a bookstore.
Check the article date: October 22, 2010. Must be a slow news day.
Thank you, Dumbrovnik! You took the words right out of my post!

in response to LadueVGilleo:
I posted a statement on this site that contained nothing but the truth, and it was removed; is it because there is one particular blogger on this site who can't handle the truth?
Save the money; scrap the project.
Marianne Herzili definitely not Chinese.
It seems unlikely that the City is going to put up toll booths and start collecting tolls. This situation would discourage tourists and conventioneers from coming to the island; how would the local merchants survive once the only legitimate industry on Marco Island is gutted? A toll bridge is easily one of the worst things the City could do.
If one is to Google the term "sociopathic behavior" and review the characteristics used to identify an individual with those tendencies, is there a specific blogger on this site that comes to mind?
The New Jersey legislature is pushing for a free saltwater fishing license for its residents. Other states in the northeast charge between $7 to $10 a year and the states reciprocate with each other, making the need for an in-state and an out-of-state saltwater fishing license unnecessary.
I understand that saltwater fishing in Florida is different than in the northeast, and the money raised through licensing is put to better use in Florida. But the price for a Florida license is beginning to look a bit expensive.
Look at the fees charged to non-residents; $17 for a 3-day license and $30 for a seven-day license? Tourists are getting gouged. It might be better just to charge a non-resident $25 for the year and be done with it. It should reduce overhead and it certainly should look a lot more friendly to the tourists.
Another pointless and inane post from Klabautermoron/MarcoIslandWomoron/Dumbrovich.
Joni Mitchell wrote a song called "Big Yellow Taxi" with the lyrics "They paved paradise to put up a parking lot." That was in 1970. It's amazing that so many people have learned so little since then.
Perhaps we should change the song's lyrics to "They paved Tract K to put up the MIA".
What's next? Maybe someone will suggest we should kill all the manatees.
Well said with uncanny accuracy.
marcogolf: Well said. I think your "big-city political mentality" statement should become the standard label to describe what is behind the issues and events that will disrupt the island. Marco Island cannot be all things to all people. Marco Island is what it is. People need to accept it for what it is and instead of trying to change it, they should move on.
MarcoIslandWoman, I am like a lot of people you read this blog; to keep up with local Marco news and to try and understand local sentiment on the island's issues.
Unfortunately, your blogs don't make a worthy contribution at all. You misrepresent yourself, you lie, and you have used this blog to defame other individuals.
Marco News gives everyone an opportunity to present themselves and their opinions in a public forum. You have taken this opportunity and you have abused it.
There is no reason for anyone who reads these blogs to support you. I am sure there are many readers who hope you go away, and do it soon.
You have chosen a blogging approach that is most abusive.
You have chosen to mislead others by the way you represent yourself in this blog.
You have chosen to be a fool.
NoRulesInKansas, trying to explain anything to Klabautermoron/MarcoIslandWomoron/Dumbrovich is a waste of time. Its like hauling lumber into a forest.
Exactly which laws are you talking about? Can't you be more specific?
MISS MARIANNE, could you repeat that?
Well said islandeye. A high school on Marco might be a good thing, but I don't see the Marco Island Academy getting it done.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt. Mark Twain
Biguy, I have to agree with your assessment of engineers. Every engineer I have ever known was a know-it-all who couldn't be told anything and the results of their efforts had problems that should have been avoided had they listened or shown more diligence in their planning. This is not a phenomenon restricted to southwest Florida; it is the way of most engineers.
Interesting. Many of my comments have been removed by Marco Eagle Staff after I blogged the name from a public profile of an ficticious individual who now signs blogs with the same ficticious name.
Perhaps my comments are being considered an invasion of privacy, and in violation of the user agreement. For that, I apologize.
More likely, the individual behind these colorful characters is hounding Marco Eagle no end to have them "do unto others as you have done unto Klabautermoron". For that, I understand.
First we had Klabautermann, a merry and diligent water sprite who turned out to be anything but. Next we have Mary/Marianne Herzili who claims to be a long time Marco Island resident with children in local schools who wants them attending the Marco Island Academy, but in reality she only exists as a blog in the Marco Eagle. And today, readers were introduced to Ivan Dubrovnik. I imagine that by tomorrow we will have a pretty good idea what Ivan is all about.
Whoever you are, many will argue that you have succeeded in becoming the most annoying blogger anyone can remember. But it is your approach to blogging that is going to lead others to believe that you should seek professional help.
Another wonderful Marco Island Christmas celebration!
What a wonderful story and a wonderful way to celebrate the Christmas season!
Thank you for sharing this wonderful Christmas story! My father also had a train set that came out every Christmas and was part of our holiday tradition and celebration!
I hope other islanders share their family traditions for celebrating Christmas without having to endure anonymous bloggers slamming them for their "carbon footprint" or for their Christmas spirit which they term "tedious"!
Thanks again! Merry Christmas!!
All the right words get said but the spirit seems lacking. Keep those Christmas lights burning bright!! Merry Christmas!
loscabos, that was a wonderful second post. I wish it was your first post.
In this age of political correctness people are less inclined to openly display their true Christmas spirit. Local governments won't get involved in Christmas celebrations because the ACLU will drag them into court over the separation of church and state. What is left for communities who want to celebrate the season? What options are there? A lot of people think the decorating contest is a fun way to celebrate the season; others find it tacky. But this is not my point. This is a nice Marco Island story and during this time of year when people are at their happiest and hold great hope for the future there are posts that deflate the spirit of the season.
It's Christmas in America; people are free to celebrate Christmas as they wish. Their celebrations should not be open to criticism.
Gee, RayPray, didn't anyone ever hug you when you were a child?
