Written on Micki Norco speaks to Alex Parker III of AP Builders. Business Expo 2011, the chamber's 11th annual :

until the Marco Chamber issues an open apology to the people of Marco for causing a DEEP divide during the STRP battle ( an issue where they had NO right sticking their political noses in) they will continue to see their ranks dwindle.

Written on Residents at East Naples rally for Trayvon Martin: 'It could have been any of our kids' :

This whole story is about to blow up in the the left wing media's face.

Written on Letter to the Editor: Make the utility rates fair and equitable for all property owners:

Mr. Enman how are you going to make util rates fair and equitable when you have the marco syndicate dividing the city and polling the council?

Written on Marco Island Academy readies for expansion:

A high school on Marco is not the vision of the Chamber and the STRP lovers aka (Marco mafia). They want build build build, commercial, commercial, commercial, rent rent, rent. This little school is so much more than a learning facility, it is those who want a family structured paradise on Marco as opposed to those who want a Miami style paradise here on Marco. Stand tall MIA!

Written on Marco Island Bike Path Ad-hoc Volunteer Committee: Cyclists tangle with motor vehicles more now than ever:

dont these bikers know that bicycling can cause testicular cancer in men and screw up the fallopian tubing in woman?

Written on Letter to the Editor: Marco Island needs a new City Council and I’m volunteering!:

in response to ratsnake:

Larry I support you, but I don't know why you would want to put yourself through this. See all the negative comments about councilors? Those comments will be directed at you after you're elected. That's just how politics works. You're the hero when you're on the outside, and the goat when you get on the inside. Some of these very people who are cheering you now will be slamming you after you're seated. It's a thankless job, which is why the cream of the crop won't touch it.

Larry, Chuck Keister is a GREAT councillor who is highly respected by all on Marco(except for the syndicate of course). Keep the course and stay away from the detractors.

Written on Bike collisions with vehicles on rise on Marco; three bicycle committee members hit:

Seargent Shultz, in less than 3 years the USA not only armed its self but most of its allies in WWII. Then we shipped them half way around the world, not only to Europe but the pacific where we were fighting a completely different war,
Two wars at the same time against completely inhumane enemies, we kicked butt, and we were compassionate after the wars. My only wish is that your family in Germany ended up on the soviet side of things after we beat you down, that way I wouldn't have to waiste my time defending the greatest country on earth from clowns like yourself because you wouldn't even be here.

Klaus: My historical knowledge is based on stories told to me, during my childhood, by an Uncle who served under General Patton during WWII. One of my prize possessions was a German helmet he sent me with a bullet hole through it.
Also, my Mother had many relatives killed in London during the bombing, so do not give your BS about Hogans Heros.

Shultz..sorry.. Klaus, you should be happy we base our opinions of the germans in WWII on a silly little TV Show, if you like we could base our opinions on the facts....but i dont think you really want to got there.

Written on Ex-NBC-2 anchor Craig Wolf sues over firing; former boss calls claims 'preposterous' :

Written on Marco Island Council seeks loan extension to consider funding for Mackle Park and Kendall sewer districts:

in response to JohninMarco:

Answer to Mr. Recker: you had been advise by MITA, MICA, and the Homeowners Assoc. that this was coming. You as well as most of the council denied their was a problem. Lets hope that the interest rate stays low or we will have a HUGE problem down the road.

"Down the road"??? That train has left the station. We have a huge problem now.

Written on GOOOH targets Marco Island City Council election:

It will be easier to throw the liberal elitist out of Washington than it will to throw the Marco mafia out of power. I believe they own the chamber, the knights of Columbus, colllier county judges and donna fiala. For the Marco Island property owner(that's condo owners and home owners) to take back their paradise from these opportunist they must stand together and say enough is enough.

Written on Letter to the Editor: Not a ‘swale’ idea:

Dear Kellermans,
If you really want to reach the people in charge of this city don't address your letter to the city council, address your letter to the Marco Chamber of Commerce.

Written on Marco Island homeowners could face new swale landscaping requirements:

We all need to due our homework for next election. This city govt takes its lead from some very influential entities on this island, most of which want: #1.POWER #2.LESS power for the Marco homeowner and taxpayer. #3.The Marco taxpayer and homeowner to carry the financial burden of their dream on making Marco "West Miami".
So if you want another Gibson or Waldack elected, just keep the course, if you want to take your city back..DO YOUR HOMEWORK!

Written on Marco Island homeowners could face new swale landscaping requirements:

in response to Seawaller:

STRP all over again - SWALE TREATMENT REPLACEMENT PROGRAM. While I don't have a dog in this hunt (my swale is grass), I am tired of a small group of people telling everyone else what they need to spend their money on to further their own "vision" of what this Island should be. Mackle Park is still in the budget out to 2016 to the tune of $5,625,000.00. Also out to 2016 is $2,500,000.00 to develop a special event area. $2,500,000.00 to put up a band shell. Another $1,000,000.00 to further develop Veterans Park. $700,000.00 more into bike paths. $300,000.00 to renovate Leigh Plummer Park. The list goes on and on ad infinitum.

Do we all really need all this stuff? Who makes this stuff up? Whoever it is, they need a reality check. Then they need to go far away.

Absolute bullseye with this post!

Written on The Vietnam Wall That Heals on Marco Island:

Klaus Studerbaker, still in a foul mood over the U.S. going over to europe twice and rescuing the world from his native Germany. Klaus - calm down there's no need to hate America so much, after all we run Germany now and tell it what weapons it can and cant have ...(hee hee hee...)poor Germany...

Written on Vietnam ‘Wall that Heals’ coming to Marco:

This is a wall celebrating the brave men who sacrificed their lives for this county, whether the war was just or not. Its about the sacrifice of this great nations young brave soldiers. Lets keep it about the the lost lives behind the names on the wall.
God Bless America!

Written on Monte Lazarus honored with 2011 Citizen of the Year award on Marco Island:

I may be going out on a limb here but looking at his mugshot, I believe he may have been snorting those victims money away.

Written on Marco Police Foundation holds 10th anniversary dinner:

Let me get this straight, we're paying millions in excess taxes for a police dept. and fire dept. we really don't need. Our county taxes provide police and fire for us correct? Marco Island crime rate must be the lowest in the state and i cant remember that last time in 20 years we've had a structure fire.
Couldn't we somehow use this redundant tax to build and maintain an urgent care center here on Marco?

Written on 3 Marco Island homes face fines for not hooking up to sewer:

in response to NobodysFool57:

I hope everyone from here on out opts for the "defer for 20 years" plan. The City will run into a wall on their borrowing authority and be driven to insolvency. It's a shame, but I'm coming to believe this is the only way we can rid ourselves of these abusive tyrants.

absolutely!!! great post! time to rid the island of the Marco mafia and get back to the paradise we all came here to live in.

Written on Marco Island City Council has more questions for consultant regarding utility costs:

The Marco homeowners should start a class action suit in Federal court against the city.

Written on D-Day recollections: ‘It was just another day, another day in the Army’:

in response to MarcoIslandWoman:

(This comment was removed by the site staff.)

the greatest generation built the modern day infrastructure in this country, highways, rail suburbs..etc.
It is my belief that the great men of this nation who fight in active duty, should be exempt from federal income tax, I believe its the least we could do for them for sacrificing themselves against the NAZI dirtbags. Its a mazing to me, the AMERICAN soldier goes to war to save a continent from NAZI dirtbags, he leaves after years of sacrifice and asks nothing in return, America even ends up defending the NAZI scoundrels who tried to obliviate a whole race of people from the face of the earthduring the WWII. Within a span of 50 years Germany has caused such misery and destruction to the people of this world that it is unimaginable to comprehend. THANK GOD! for Americans soldiers going over to Europe not once but twice, to kick some German butt and hand the continent back over to free loving nations.

Written on D-Day recollections: ‘It was just another day, another day in the Army’:

What a generation, first they save the world from Nazis and the Japanese (terrible losses) then they come home and build a nation from the ground up, raise families and pay taxes all the while... the greatest generation ever! Thank you Mr. Biles.

I was just wondering..if we could magically go back 5 years(and knowing the fiscal condition we are in now), would all those who supported the STRP have a change of mind?

Written on Fish kill in island canals appears over:

in response to NobodysFool57:

In the last 2 years, both the 1700 and 1800 blocks of North Bahama were sewered by the STRP. (I live on the 1800 block). You can no longer blame failing septic tanks for the damage fertilizer runoff has been doing to our canals all along. You don't the suppose the recent rains have had anything to do with exacerbating the problem, do you? That foul stench in the air is called "a failed charade in municipal government". Both Marco Island Utilities and Marco Island P.D. have foisted more liability on us than our small community can be reasonably expected to bear. It's high time to pull the plug on the City of Marco Island and let everyone in Collier County from E-City to Golden Gate Estates feel our pain. And the $300 Million in bonded debt? A drop in the bucket compared to the banking and auto industry bailouts. Just tell the "investors" they should've done better due dilligence.

An independent lab should be testing our drinking water as well as our canal waters. The FDEP seems to take a 'softline' attitude when it comes to the gang that pushed thru this ingenius STRP program. I dont know about you, but I wont even drink filtered Marco tap water anymore and its been months since I've seen mullet jumping in the canals.
