Written on Two days out of detox, Marco woman charged with DUI:

Maybe if Mom and Dad spent time on her (Like taking her to Church as a Family) instead of just money at rehab she would make the kinda friends that wouldn't take her out cruising just out of recovery. Throwing her in jail just fills up the jails.

Written on The mitigation season arrives 'like a lion' for Marco Island's Code Enforcement Board:

Blah, Blah, Blah Most of the people on this island dont even know who Bill Moss is. He was gone years before they moved here.
If we dont get a strong Mayor and some leadership on this rock we can expect to keep our recovery in the dumps for at least the ext 10 years.

Written on Letter to the Editor: Marco Island utility outages:

LOL You can really tell the people who haven't lived here very long.

In another year or two you can write a LTTE about the county just taking our taxes and not servicing us, or that we need more than 5 Deputies patrolling here.

What we really need is to become a city, then we can solve our own problems, or 'back up north we did it cheaper, better, and faster'

Guess he WAS serious when he said 'You can talk on the Cell till they start the previews, then you have to hang up.'

Written on Smoother waters ahead: New rescue boat arrives on Marco Island:

Lie Cheat Steal
I seem to recall a rule that if something was going to cost over $500,000 the people had to vote on it.
It was then brought up that the City could pretty much say they were paying any old price for things and just make it up in change orders.
Looks like the new Council is just as corrupt as all the rest.
Only difference is this group was supposed to be so open and honest. Looks like they lied from the start.

Written on Marco city employee suspended pending investigation into zoning change for former business partner:

What a LOAD.
I have known Bryan from his days as a Planner/City Manager and I think he is just getting caught up in this money sucking mess we call a City Government.

Whats the problem ? Are you upset he actually live here on the Island ? That he does his Job and about four other peoples jobs too?
Does he make you look bad because he has a clue?

Is there still some cry babies upset from when Milk was City Manager and you snibblers wanted to make him our full time manager but he saw how you treated managers and didn't want the job?

This was such a nice island at one time, and you have ruined it,

Written on Going it alone: Marco Island City Council will continue city manager search without a headhunter:

Guess our reputation for being hard to work for is catching up to us.
Its obvious to almost anyone that Marco needs a full time Mayor elected by the people not appointed by the council.
A little town like Marco doesn't need a professional City Manager it needs a government thats responsive to the people.

Written on Making hard choices: Marco Island City Council narrows city manager search from 13 to six:

When Sacher said he wanted to know the occupational status of the candidates wives and if any of them had a child with a disability was pretty s----- and illegal. Why didn't the City's Lawyer jump him? And why did the Paper edit that out over night?

Written on 'The model of a public servant': Marco Island's Bill Trotter reflects on years of public and private sector experience:

Write what ever you want on the Blogs, good Ol Bill has never made it a secret he doesn't read them. Call him, but then again he doesn't have a listed number. Write him a note, but not to his home, he will pick it up at City Hall.

I think you can count this as the opening day of Bill run for County Commissioner.
Best of luck to you Billy, in the years we have followed you, you have never disappointed or surprised us.
