Seriously? You wish that if anyone makes a comment that runs counter to a sunny disposition they should "crawl under a rock and die a slow death"?

Your comments lead me to believe you may have just crawled from under a rock. It is where us cave dwellers reside in times of discontent, of which I believe you have contributed to as well.

I apologize if was remiss in not officially welcoming you to the fold? Negativity and all.

Mizz Watt, please give it up. You are fighting a war that you are losing, battle after battle. And, you are the instigator in this war. Who are your prospective educators in your School of Broken Dreams? How secure can these professionals feel with "your leadership"!?! As I have mentioned in past stories, I applaud your efforts, but now I truly question your mental state as you are in complete denial of your inevitable demise. Good luck to your kids when they tip-toe in the halls of Lely High School. Your kids' academic success depends upon you and only you. What you establish at home will lead the path for your children's success or (God forbid like their mother) demise...

Written on 30 Collier educators recognized with 'Teacher of Distinction' award:

in response to islandeye1#236971:

(This comment was removed by the site staff.)

The answer to your question is, "Yes". Each and every year that Collier County seeks out teachers who go above and beyond the actual scope of their job. Teachers who educate on Marco are regularly monitored for such accolades, as are all of the remaining 2500 or so teachers in the district. The organization that oversees this process takes letters of recommendation, and follows up on them one-by-one. The bottom line is that no one has recommended any of the great teachers on Marco.

Out of respect to you, islandeye1#236971 and more importantly the Marco teachers, I hope that you are not insinuating that there is a conspiracy to keep Marco teachers from becoming eligible for such considerations for the award. So, in the future, if you or any of your colleagues, feel that a Marco teacher is a strong candidate for a Golden Apple Award, simply inquire on the necessary steps to recommend one of the Marco teachers.

If you are posing your question simply to make a "what about Marco" stand, grow up and know the process...

To all parents who have made the decision to legally send their children to a high school other than Lely, Congratulations! A parent's responsibility is to look out for the well-being for their children, and if they deem necessary, they will send them to a non-Lely school.

To all Lely-Lovers, MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!!! This is a matter of Have's & Have Not's. You Lely-Lovers are merely jealous of the fact that you cannot afford to send you precious children to a non-Lely school.

And for those Marco residents (aka, Lely-Lovers), stop your jealous ways and reporting to Collier County School District of alleged violations to the Homestead issue. Again, MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS AND WORRY ABOUT YOUR OWN KIDS!!! Lely is a great school, but so is Naples High, Barron Collier, Gulf Coast, and the Cream-of-the-Crop... (drum roll, please) COMMUNITY SCHOOL OF NAPLES!!!

To all the rats, watch out for the proverbial d-CON Rodent Control. Karma will surely get you in the end...

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A Klabautermann on a ship, from Buch Zur See, 1885.
A Klabautermann is a water sprite (or nix) who assists sailors and fishermen on the Baltic Sea in their duties. He is a merry and diligent creature, with an expert understanding of most watercraft, and an unsupressable musical talent. He also rescues sailors washed overboard. The name comes from the Low German verb klabastern meaning "rumble" or "make a noise". An etymology deriving the name from the verb kalfatern ("to caulk") has also been suggested.[1]
His image is of a small sailor in yellow with a tobacco pipe and woollen sailor's cap, often wearing a caulking hammer. This likeness is carved and attached to the mast as a symbol of good luck.
Despite the positive attributes, there is one omen associated with his presence: no member of a ship blessed by his presence shall ever set eyes on him. He only ever becomes visible to the crew of a doomed ship.
More recently, the Klabautermann is sometimes described as having more sinister attributes, and blamed for things that go wrong on the ship. This incarnation of the Klabautermann is more demon- or goblin-like, prone to play pranks and, eventually, doom the ship and her crew. This deterioration of image probably stems from sailors, upon returning home, telling stories of their adventures at sea. Since life at sea can be rather dull, all creatures - real, mythical, and in between - eventually became the centre of rather ghastly stories.
Meaning= YOU'RE GAY!!!

Maybe Mrs. High Society Watt can approach the great people in Goodland for land to build her False School of Broken Dreams, but wait, that's right, Goodlanders have common sense and decency so they will likely ignore any request. My suggestion for Jane "too much time on my hands" Watt to move. Move far, far away. Far away to your fantasy land that you have drawn up in your chemically unbalanced brain.

Agreed, but would the Elitist of the Elitist, Jane Watt, drive that far to get her loser kids to her ground-breaking of an academy? I think not. I know you were sarcastic in your comment & I share your condescending under-tone, but we should all be more upset with the fact that people like Jane Watt have fouled the earth with her off-spring. Now that is something to be concerned about. May God have mercy on our souls if this Academy of Broken Dreams ever becomes a reality. CCPS is likely dangling the proverbial carrot for Bugs Bunny Watt to snatch...

Written on Federal lawsuit filed against Marco police claiming excessive force during arrest:

in response to GFonda:

Stef is my neighbor and one could not be a better one. I do think that because we apparently do not have facilities on the island to hold and process individuals involved in these types of incidents, that it is risky to have one police officer transport multiple actively belligerent individuals to Naples without backup; or at least put them in a "paddy wagon" where they are caged in a separate compartment. Perhaps such a vehicle is available from the Sheriff's department in which case the Sheriff should be called in to do the transport to the Sheriff's facility in Naples. From what I remember of the incident from the original press reports, Stef handled the situation as best as could be expected under the circumstances. I am a big supporteer of our local police officers who do a fine job. I am curious if the young men were in fact convicted of something - maybe underage drinking, disturbing the peace, resisting arrest, etc. thoughts exactly! You don't have to be a neighbor of Stef's to realize this either. After all, what part of exonerated do the anti-City/anti-MIPD don't understand!?! The d-bag plaintiff that has filed with the Feds is clearly looking for a pay out. Good luck with that... because, FDLE has EXONERATED this police officer who has more police experience than most know. Thank you GFONDA for your thoughts and support of Stef. Stef is the victim here.

Written on Marco Island police chief files motion to dismiss harrassment lawsuit:

Sure, Island Drug has operated for years, but ask yourself, "why would anyone travel from the East coast of Florida to fill a prescription?" BECAUSE ISLAND DRUG DOES NOT KEEP RECORDS LIKE A REAL PHARMACY!!! Real pharmacies are registered/monitored by the DEA to prevent illegal prescriptions and drug addicts from abusing (no pun intended) the system. Under Island Drug's current procedure, a single person could fill the same prescription multiple times, under different names! You tell me there isn't a problem. Get off your anti-MIPD soap box, because it has nothing to do with MIPD, rather Island Drug's non-chalant, good 'ol boy filing system. And, that's Island Drug's problem, not MIPD's alleged "harassing". If MIPD were to ignore this, you might as well allow the hourly rate hotels operate.

Written on Q&A | Marco Island Academy: Charter high school plans moving forward :

in response to 4marcoisland:

This is the most exciting project Marco Island has seen in years!!!! I am so impressed by the people who are working on the project-many of whom are educators. The level of talent of volunteers is unbelievable. There are over 200 people helping now. Finally Marco will offer a choice for complete public educational facilities on the island. A community serves people of all ages. There are plenty of activities for the adult community and young children up to the 8th grade. However, there aren't any activities for high school students. This will soon change. The school will start with 9 and 10 the first year, then 9, 10 , and 11 the second year, and 9,10,11,12 the third year. I can't wait for my children to attend this school! Keep up the great work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I completely respect your enthusiasm, but question how incredibly disillusioned you are as well. Has anyone considered consulting with the Planning Board? The City's Planning Board will ultimately have a "say in the matter" if not exclusivity in rezoning this property. So, go right ahead and spend thousands on architectural renderings (you have to start somewhere...) to build up false hope in your followers.

I do wish the disillusioned well as you will need a great deal of luck. Now consider this, the Y has stepped on so many toes and spit on so many faces, watch out for the lighting bolts (guilt by association). There is nothing "Christian" about the YMCA's (Marco Island branch) business practices. Their CEO can barely manage the small operations of quite possibly the smallest Y in the state, let alone share her campus with a charter school. Maybe if current MICMS principal is ousted, Mr. Love could be the principal of this disillusioned, school-of-dreams. This is why the Greater Naples YMCA parted ways with the Marco branch for inappropriate activities and practices. Miss Watt... I commend your efforts, but question how fit do you really see a future relationship with the Y could be!?! Beware of your desire to partner with the Devil.

Guessing that after the City said, "ummm, no thank you", you ran out of options and sought out those at the Y. I am not clairvoyant; however, it does not seem feasible to have an elite high school on Marco. I'm also guessing that you view yourself as an elitest, because if you may recall, MICMS started in portable class rooms. Yes, that is right, Marco Island children were actually educated in portable trailers. After years of hard work and dedication, they now have a beautiful campus that they can barely afford to keep up and maintain. My point is that you need to be realistic, not outlandishly optimistic. No matter how savvy your grant writer may be, our economy is still uncertain and unstable. Dr. Thompson will likely laugh and snicker at your very presence in his office so please do not anticipate in getting up your hopes. He has greater issues to consider. Do what the smart, Marco residents do, buy a residence in Naples, and send your child to high school other than Lely. By the way, great students and athletes from Lely graduate and do wonderful things

After all, it is really that bad to have your child go to Lely (Community School of Naples or St. John Neumann)? The inability to expose your children to social interaction and diversity will increase how dysfunctional your home is.

Good Luck and consider being realistic...

Absolutely tragic. Prayers and thoughts go out to these two and all who have been victim to accidents like this.

Written on Looking for a summer camp? Adventure awaits:

Hmmm? 50 kids per week times 10 weeks does equal nearly 596 kids. Kids and families on Marco are fed up with mediocre programs and camps offered by the Y. Prime example is the Optimist Club of Marco Island. The founds of the OCMI were not pleased with the so-called athletics offered for their children so they created their own Club. Congrats on your success! I suggest that Miss Love and the MICMS Principal terminate their relationship/conflict-of-interest and refocus on the community.

Written on Guest Commentary: Embattled City Manager Steve Thompson says 'let’s get the answers right':

Written on Live blog: Marco City Council fires City Manager Steve Thompson:

in response to MarcoAvenger:

If you read these comments you will think that majority of Marco agrees with this decision. However only the vocal minority will come here to pat each other on their backs and try to make themselves feel big. In the end the decision that was made tonight will hurt Marco in the long run. I think we will have a hard time finding anyone willing to take this job.

By the way the supporters of this decision should learn how to behave in a public meeting. The couple sitting behind me was very rude and obnoxious. They need to learn how to listen to both sides of the argument. It is bad when someone half your age has to set an example of how to behave in public. I would be extremely embarrassed if you were my parents.

Thank you! Thank you for stating the obvious to the minority, yet vocal, who insist on ranting and raving without hearing both sides. You, MarcoAvenger, nailed Marco Island's perception on the head: nothing but hot-headed, angry, disgruntled, pathetic, closed-minded geriatrics who find pleasure in acting-a-fool.

Written on Do you agree with Marco’s decision to fire Steve Thompson?:

We have to understand that there are deep-rooted reasons for the latest revelations of Mr. Thompson. But, ask yourself, "Why?". Why is he being held responsible for Quality Enterprises/Rony Joel/Bill Moss violations with EPA? That is exactly the point here! If Mr. Thompson does not appeal this (which he should), best of luck to him, because Marco Island doesn't deserve a great leader like he has been all along.

You, the Eagle, do nothing but raise the blood pressure of the educated elderly and stir up the pot. Your "reporters" report crap (not knowing the facts). And, furthermore, your "editor(s)" don't even edit and get the facts. Mr. Scripps is truly rolling his grave for the way you are representing his company. Shame on you.

Written on Poll: Marco City Council considers charging a fee at Canine Cove :

From March 10, 2010:

"NAPLES — A Naples advisory board said this week it supports plans to build an off-leash dog park on city property.

The city’s community services advisory board on Tuesday threw its support behind all aspects of a private group’s plans for an off-leash dog park, including a proposed user fee.

The park – dubbed Central Bark by its creators – is tentatively scheduled to be built on the city’s campus on Riverside Circle. The park will include space for small and large dogs, sidewalks, fences and water fountains.

The two-phase project comes with a projected cost of more than $205,000, and the group behind the park hopes to raise as much in private funding for the park as possible.

While the group plans to fund-raise to help construct the park, the plan includes an annual fee, which would go toward operating and maintenance costs.

The group is proposing a $120-a-year user fee, said Naples attorney Will Dempsey, one of the community members behind the park.

Central Bark would be the only park in Collier County to charge a user fee. Rover Run at Veterans Community Park in North Naples is free, while Canine Cove at Mackle Park on Marco Island accepts donations to maintain the park.

While the board supported Dempsey’s proposal, board member Rosyln Katz said she was slightly concerned about the user fee and registration process.

“There’s something to me that’s wrong about having to register to go to a dog park,” Katz said. “To me it doesn’t go with the dog park. There’s something more welcoming about a dog park than having to be registered, and licensed and signing agreements in advance.”

Dogs would receive tags – much like their county registration tags – in order to use the park. Dempsey said one of the reasons behind requiring registration would be to protect the city from liability.

The registration process would ensure all of the dogs had the necessary shots and paper work required by the group.

The board’s support means the park is one step closer to becoming a reality.

The park proposal will be discussed sometime in April by the city’s planning advisory board, and if approved will go before Naples City Council sometime late this spring."

See, Marco, yet another reason on how you do not handle things properly. Hind sight is never 20/20 for you, rather try to keep up with Naples. Keep your corrupt "paradise" and Naples will enjoy reality.

Written on Do you think shell and gravel driveways can be unsafe?:

Hmmmmmmm?!? Let's get this straight... The year is 2010 (considering the City of Marco Island has been incorporated since what, August 28, 1997!?! Why is this an issue now? What's next Chief Murphy, concerns over the thickness of bahia grass? C'mon on, isn't one of your employees receiving an award somewhere on the island?

Written on Letter to the Editor: Marco Island needs a high school:

Justification! Is a high school necessary? Probably not. Kids already go to a poor performing school as it is. Do you honestly believe that keeping the students on the island will have any greater academic impact for them than that of Lely, Gulf Coast, or any other public high school? Not likely since it all boils down to the core values in which a family establishes for these students.
Next, Marco Island Charter Middle School has its own fair share of issues. A high school's identity is not based on issues, rather values and preparing our young minds for the next phase in their lives.
Bottom line, WHO IS GOING TO FUND THIS? Unless you have a darn good grant writer (or philanthropists willing to flip the bills, oops they're already trying that with MICMS), focus on fixing what is already in place, not trying to reinvent the wheel. That is what the Optimist Club of M.I. has tried to do (since the YMCA's alleged inability to offer good quality athletics for youth). Marco Island, you find yourself chasing your tail once again. Stop trying to keep up with the Jones'. MARCO ISLAND WILL NEVER BE NAPLES! Start grasping your children's minds rather than sheltering them.

Written on Charter Middle School board candidates make their cases:

Collier County School System is just waiting out the inevitable failure that is in the future of MICMS. This school has the habit of: treating the kids (and parents alike) as if they are the redheaded step-child, sweeping could-be high-profile issues under the rug (Reinders' sexting case, alleged molestation case with two Latino boys, habitual bullying and more). Once CCPS grabs the reigns to this joke of a school, look for quality changes that will benefit what really counts, your kids. Wake up, Marco! When you allow individuals who can barely organize youth sports( without fighting over every little thing) for the community, you are depriving your kids' educators of quality leadership.

suntan, you are so incredibly the epitome of a geriatric freak or a single, never been married loser ("Put the kids in front of the TV"). The park is for the community, which includes kids. It was a cross country meet for kids in the community in which the dog walker did not have any compassion nor courtesy to move off the pathway when 150 runners approach. This is a situation where the owner of the dog panicked (and should now be found to face charges)! It is people like you who deter kids and families from coming to the park. You and your negative attitude towards kids. I advise people like you to STAY AWAY from any areas where kids are since their happiness and laughter may be wouldn't want to enjoy life...

Yet again, Marco Island finds itself in an uncomfortable situation. The people of this great city need to stand up & say enough is enough. Stop electing clowns to serve on city council. This is not about Dana Souza's resignation; rather, it is about the corrupt business practices discovered at city hall's finance department, along with Rony Joel. Dana, you have done nothing but great things for Marco! Best of luck! We'll miss your leadership & dedication. Watch out Mr. Thompson, the target is on your back. You have failed yet again at your third straight city manager gig. Council, please do your homework before you select a puppeteer to orchestrate your madness.
