Written on 'Current' affairs – Waterways Committee puts off seawalls, takes up navigation:

It's the mouth of a river, what do you expect. Let them crash their boats, it will weed out the idiots no the water. Or ban docks and make them illegal!

Written on Dead manatee in Marco waters adds to record year for red tide-caused deaths :

If only we had that $400K fire boat, this would not have happened...

Written on Work at Hideaway Beach begins in March:

Hideaway is desperate and Coastal Engineering realizes this. $$$

Written on Deputies: Hallucinating man walks into store with large knives asked someone 'not to eat him' :

Molly does not make you do that type of stuff. Was most likely crystal meth.

Written on Marco Island named one of 100 places that can change your child’s life:

If you do not look past the title its rather misleading to someone like myself who grew up on the island. You either make it off the Rock or you're stuck there for life.

Written on Connecticut man dies after being pulled from Marco Island lake:

Ban the lake! Grew up on the island, this is a first.

Written on Jason Easterly/Special to the Daily News Stan Gober talks with patrons about the Princess Buzzard :

Stan passed last year, why does NDN have a photo of him up "talking with patrons"

NDN - get you ish together.

Written on Boater safety and responsibilities make headway at Marco Island Waterways Advisory Committee :

in response to WizeOlMarco:

"...The condominium is located at the point where the Marco River meets the entrance to Collier Bay. In 2012, emergency dredging of the pass changed currents and the velocity of water entering and leaving the pass...."

The pass is the point for much of the tidal water flowing in-out of Collier Bay plus Marco Island's north side canals. During incoming tides the water flow can be strong, sweeping vessels toward the condo docks and seawall. Plus, is a 'no wake zone'. Inattentive boating or equipment malfunction = trouble at this location.

Spot on with that. Try avoiding the Marco Princess during an incoming tide when she's entering that waterway. Talk about some scary sh**

Written on Hideaway Beach renourishment uncertain as county reconsiders funding :

in response to 1Paradiselost:

We all remember it was this group of homeowners that cut down the trees on Coconut Island. Once the trees were cut, Coconut was gone within 3 years.

That island protected your private beach. Now you have hat in hand looking for money. Time to pass the hat to all the residents of Hideaway Beach...

Your really did not expect your conservative neighbors who have their first dime to bail you out, did yea?

We can only support your beach problem when the gates come down and we all can swim on your beach & play golf on your private course.

Well put.

I do miss Coconut Island. Sandollar is making a hell of a comeback tho.

Bottom line - it's absurd how the Hideaway residents demand the county funds their private community woes. They're in the top 1%, they can surely afford it.

Written on Hideaway Beach renourishment approved – for now :

in response to bondie:

Coconut Island was a small, barrier island covered with trees. Even though they were "not native" trees as some complained, they held the soil and island in place. I remember Hidaway Beach tenents viciously complained that their view was compromised and ordered that the trees be removed. That was unconscionable. Not only did the trees hold the island in place, it was a refuge for birds. Also, as a barrier island, it helped to keep Hideway's beach from eroding from the wind and serf. This is now your problem and you should pay for any replenishment. We, the taxpayers should not be charged for your arrogant mistake!

Written on Marco woman accused of obtaining illegal prescriptions, selling from home:

in response to keepmarcosafe:

Hey Throat_Yogurt........I guess forging prescriptions, forging doctor signatures and stealing people's identity to submit an application to get "free" meds and then sell them to "help" people is no crime to you. You must have a record.....or maybe one of her "patients". Sounds like this "helper" is looking at some serious charges and time. Maybe she can help people in prison......they need it.

No record, not a patient.

Just poking some fun at a rather negative situation. Lighten up buddy. Happy starts at the Snook @ 10, have a drink.

Written on Marco woman accused of obtaining illegal prescriptions, selling from home:

Marco Island crime of the year! Someone trying to help others - although "illegal" in the governments eyes - a generous idea.

Written on Beach shuttle, off-site parking and Tigertail Beach top list of Marco Island's 'no swale parking' solutions :

A floating walk way will surely cause lawsuits due to the elderly attempting to cross and "slip & fall).

Shuttles will never happen.

Build a 3 story parking garage at the present South Beach parking area. Charge the hell out of the tourists. And I can park for free with my MICA card :)
