Great job MICA!!! And people complain about the $130 annual pass. Best bargain on Marco.
Get well soon buddy...
Best of luck to you in the future. You, along with other Marco kids have represented Lely and we are proud that you were part of our Optmist soccer program as a ref as well.
Only way to do that would be a Boston Tea Party...succeed from the Union type of deal!!Marco could form its on county, say like Paradise County. That way ALL tax dollars would stay here. Lely still would be a school of choice. My wife graduated from Lely and I've had two kids go there as well...both in college doing great. My third child will be a freshman this fall. Mr. Fairbanks is a great guy...
Great community event. With all the BS going on, it's nice to rally as a community.
Thanks for the short notice Dr. Thompson! I trust you will field questions regarding Tract K!! Rumor has it since the solar "farm" is NOT going to happen with the public outcry, Dr Thompson has been quoted as saying, "That property will never be given to Marco Island". You don't work for us, the school board does...They're elected your appointed!! Good luck!!! Can I be on our TV show????????

My wife andd I walked our two dogs around the lake at Mackle this afternoon. That parcel proposed for the dog park is ideal. If the neighbors that back that property bought with a water treatment plant and a City maintence facility building behind them, what's a problem with a dog park!! katieb...you are correct, there is not enough room for a athletic field there. It would not even enough space for a regulation Little League BB field. Why not filled a portion of the lake on the south and make athletic fields??? They have already fill in the north end. There is still plenty of lake acreage for fishing and the remote control sailboat dudes.
I respect your opinion. I have four kids and two furry four legged friends I call DOGS myself. We have over 220 kids playing Optimist Club soccer on Winterberry NOW with another 200 more ready for Little League this spring. Marco Eagles Football and Cheerleading had over 160 this past fall and Optimist basketball had 150 kids!! We need athletic facilities for our kids and you worry about your dogs!!!! I worry about MY dogs too...but the kids come first.
25 years on Marco...Once again, thank you for the kind words. Both Terry and I are very proud of Zach, along with his three big sisters.
25 years and 27 year resident...Thank you for the kind words.
God bless you all!!! This is another example of GREAT people reaching out to those in need. I am so proud to know many of you Rotarians and consider you my friends and ambassadors to our community. Keep up the GREAT work. And by the way, their bus trips to the Dolphins games are AWESOME.
No, it is a volunteer position. There are many great people that donate their time to organizations like MICMS, Optimist Club and the YMCA, along with other organizations. We do it for the KIDS!!!!!
Why not install the proposed solar project on top of Charter School and Tommy Barfield. Track K needs to used for open greenspace like athletics and recreation. Four acres of open greenspace on Marco is to valuable to put solar panels on.
Like I said. Smart move Mr. Thompson. After Harrison's embrassing exit (I mean retirement...cough..cough...with a 25K golden parashuet)Thompson made a good decision to keep this hire in house. Let's support Bryan, as he will do an excellent job. From what I hear and read The Optimist Club of Marco put a heavy push to get him promoted to this position. It seems they are doing a good job working with Parks & Rec in developing a decent youth sports programfor this Island with over 200 kids in both the football and basketball programs. I wish my older kids had those organized programs back when.
Smart move Mr. Thompson. There was no doubt that the community, for the most part (accept the YMCA), was pulling for Bryan. We look forward to working with him and his dedicated staff as we move forward in providing outstanding programs and improved facilities for our community.
What a joke this city government is. And all Collier County does is suck all of of your tax dollars. I say dissolve the City of Marco, and make the Island a state county. This would reduce taxes and provide better services to all. Why not!! We have the schools, a police and fire/EMS department, and water utility. Continue having LCEC as our electric provider and contract out jail services to the Collier County Sheriffs Dept. who we pay millions of dollars a year to with or no service.
The Optimist soccer and baseball will not share time. Again, before you post you should get your facts straight! Soccer will follow basketball in January with baseball to begin in late March. NO CONFLICT AT ALL....
We are still waiting response from the Charter School for use of OUR facility. This is a PUBLIC school subsidized by OUR tax dollars, along with the many volunteers and donators of OUR Island. Lely HS is available to the program if Charter elects to turn its back. How sad...Shame on you MICMS if you turn YOUR backs on YOUR kids.
Nice grammar blackwidow! "Wasn't we" ??? You from the Bayou like the Diaper Doctor??
Will Ave Maria play a home and home against Notre Dame in 2045?? They can play the game at Palmetto Ridge High School. Maybe Dominos will cater
Well done!! All positive posts. Time to forward in a positive direction. Let's get this community back together.
I love it that "Butchy Boy" says he is going to stay active in city politics. Memo to "Butchy Boy" GO AWAY...pick up your toys and go home. Then have Guidry check your prostate. He may even find your head in there.
You boys need to get out of Marco NOW! Butchy Boy says he'll still be a voice on THE ROCK...Butchy Boy, it's time for you to pick up your toys and go home.
Kumbaya my Lord...Kumbaya...Kumbaya my Lord...
All you people are OUT of control.
VOTE GIBSON, RECKER, TROTTER, AND WALDACK!!
silence of the grey hairs would be better
Once again the COMMUNISTS AGAINST RESPONSIBLE ENVIRONMENTAL SOLUTIONS lose. You boys pick up your toys and go home now.
GET ALL ILLEGAL ALIENS AND REGISTERED SEX PERVERTS OFF THE ROCK NOW!!!!!!
Well said...we have enough BS going around on the ROCK with all the political crap. Get these perverts off NOW>>>>>>How about all the illegal aliens too......
THANK YOU for your hard work, dedication and loyalty to the citizens of Marco. Best of luck as you step back fulltime, for now, into the private sector. How dare any person challenge your integrity and character.
This guy should have his testes removed.
If you need a purification system you can use during a boil water notice, check out www.kinetico.com and look for PUREFECTA it's the only certified drinking water purification system for the removal and bacteria and virus.
did your mom find your playboy?
DNA testing has determined both the dogs DNA on the condoms. Now that's what a call "doggie style"
