Bush also kept us safe after 9/11 and bowed to no one.

Written on Gibson: ‘People are dying ’ - Council discusses emergency needs on Marco:

in response to RealityChecker:

Gibson hasn't paid property taxes for years. He is a financial disaster. It is absurd that he has any say in the way we send our tax dollars. He is just a spend spend spend guy. It doesn't cost him anything. I am sure he would vote free drinks and cigarettes for everybody if he could.

I am surprised that the other freeloading council member hasn't jumped on this as well.

These two clowns owe the citizens of Marco Island tens of thousands of dollars. Why aren't we applying their pay checks to this debt?

Who is the other council member? Time to clean house.

Written on Collier County agrees to hire new ambulance service:

in response to islandgma:

Why didn't the fire department ambulance which is right across the street take the man who ultimately died to the hospital?

As Ed Issler claim's MIFD was not legally allowed to transport the victim.

Written on Marco officials call for state investigation in delayed ambulance case :

in response to lauralbi1:

DC5799: Get the facts. Read the report. This has nothing to do with MIFD. Rather it is between NCH and the County.
What "follow up" should MIFD do ?? They are not the "Overseers" of NCH and County EMS.
They take care of what they take care of. They have plenty to do.
In fact, for the other naysayers, I would specuulate that MIFD was not legally allowed to do transport in this case.
Ed Issler

The man is dead because NO ONE helped him. That is a fact.

Written on Marco officials call for state investigation in delayed ambulance case :

According to the Marco fire dept. report,patient transport from theNCH Maco Island healthcare Center has been problematic in the past, but was supposed to have been resolved months before Andersons emergency.
So I am assuming it was not resolved and no one knew it at the MIFD. Doesn't anyone do follow up's?

Written on Social Security recipients to get 3.6 percent cost of living increase:

I am not happy that the Dems.are in power. The only hope and change left is to vote them all out.We can't get any worse we have hit bottom.
I was a reg. dem for 52 years not any more. You people that think we are ok are living in la la land.

Written on To pay or not to pay: Fireworks become hot topic at Marco Island City Council:

What about fund raising to pay for the fireworks and the St Pats parade? How much can a parade cost?
Remember Canine Cove, not a dime did the City give, all money was paid for by the animal lovers and what a great amount was raised.
You people go to these meetings with one thought in your heads, how much money can we get from the council. Raise your own money it will be a very rewarding experience.

Written on 3 men accused of stealing cardboard bales from behind North Naples store:

Bales is right spelling bails is wrong.

Written on Marco council silent on blind man’s plea for audible street crossing signal:

in response to Seawaller:

Why doesn't the City sell the unused ticket cameras to pay for the audible crossings? Or put up the cameras and use the ticket money to pay for them?

Too much for them to comprehend.

Written on Marco council silent on blind man’s plea for audible street crossing signal:

Watertown Ma. home to the Perkins Scool for the blind has audible traffic lights. When the signal turns red a bell rings to allow the blind person to cross.
It probably cost less than the s----- camera's they bought to check cars coming on to the Island. Where are those camera's anyway

Written on Former Marco city official Rony Joel files libel, slander suit against critic:

Dirty Sanchez? Who was more dirty than all the filth that ran the city from Moss down. And did not Dr Sanchez take on the city all alone and WIN,WIN. Tucker lied,lied lied and then admitted he lied.

Written on Marco Island City Council hears public grievances at meeting:

Imagine visitors coming to Marco because we have a good reputation for fireworks. Too much of the old sauce Jerry

Written on Marco council to decide whether to raise tax rate as proposed:

Then they name buildins and plaque's after Tucker and Minozzi. Arceri will have the wastewater bldg.
Name one good thing Tucker ever did to merit having City Hall named after him. Huh Popoff

I agree good post.

Written on Marco police car involved in wreck that shut down Collier Blvd.:

So if there are no physical req. what if a really obese,unfit employee was hurt on the job because he could not perform the duty that he was required to do
Also could a heart attack be blamed on his job,not because he has health issues because he does not take care of himself?
Would he be eligible for a disability pension? It's hard to believe that there are no restriction's in place. Does Naples have them or the Sheriffs dept.?

Written on Marco police car involved in wreck that shut down Collier Blvd.:

What are the physical requirements to be eligible for a MPD? Are they not required to take an annual physical? If he really is 400 lbs he could not perform most of the feat's that are required.

Written on Marco police car involved in wreck that shut down Collier Blvd.:

I find it hard to believe an 80 year old woman pulling out of a driveway not looking and flying onto Collier. Why did Lt Goetz say he couldnt say who was at fault and did he say it appeared the 80 year old turned in front of the police car.
Seem's to me he has made up his mind according to the eagle.

Written on Business Monday: Dunkin' Donuts fills holes in Southwest Florida market PHOTOS:

Being from new england he knows that a florida jelly donut can not compare to a boston jelly. Fl. has just a drop of jelly new england just oozes out. That's why it's called a jelly
Try the jelly donuts on 951 near lowes. Bad

Written on Marco city worker who got $100,000 when dismissed loses Lee job on his first day:

My feeling's exactly that sleaze. Thank you thank you Dr Sanchez again.

Written on Back to the badge: Marco Island names former Collier Sheriff Don Hunter as new police chief:

in response to ed34145:

A sad day for Marco Island.

This is a great,great day for Marco Island.Things can only get better.
Welcome Chief Hunter

Written on New Marco police chief to be announced Monday:

Being endorsed by Wayne is the kiss of death. Sorry Baer,best of luck Chief Hunter.

Written on Letter to the Editor: Time to pile-on City Council:

Ed still using that (landslide) theme. How about Dr Sanchez's landslide win? How did your asbestos test do? You never mention that fiasco anymore.
Mario Sanchez was right and you were wrong

Written on Letter to the Editor: City slowly sliding:

What really scares me is Enterprise is still being awarded contract's on this island.
Again thank you Dr. Sanchez, you fought the hard fight and won.

Written on Guest Commentary: Why not a referendum – Please let the people speak:

in response to marco97:

DC my point is over the years the park has lost about 6 mature palm trees that lined the walkway. When I asked about getting them replaced I'm told there is no money in the budget for them. So when my tax dollars are used to put $5,000 worth of palms in a fenced in area for use by dog owners I feel like I'm getting screwed.
I usually agree with you but on this I think the dog park people should have paid for the the palm trees or at least some should have been placed around the park.

I think but I am not sure the money was taken from the endowment. If not where is the endowment money being used?
There is money for everything else on this island, why not that? The signs alone on the bike path must have cost more than $5000.There are at least 8-10 signs at the intersection 's to the path.What about fireworks, St Patricks day parade extra police on duty?
If you are getting screwed as you so aptly put it, it is the city screwing you. Not the dog lovers of this island.

Written on Guest Commentary: Why not a referendum – Please let the people speak:

in response to marco97:

DC, what was the cost of all the tall palm trees that were planted at the dog park, just curious.

there is an endowment for the upkeep of the park. how much did the trees cost all around the park and veterans park/ Who paid for those?

Written on Guest Commentary: Why not a referendum – Please let the people speak:

Dog park was built with private donations, no taxpayers money though the city was looking for way's to confiscate some of the donated money. Waldack wanted owners to pay to license their dog's. Gibson wanted to "get some money from the tourist who visit". Everything else we paid for, I use the term WE loosely

Written on Guest Commentary: Why not a referendum – Please let the people speak:

Do you think Gov. Scott know's what goes on here on MI.No referendum.raising taxes, out of control water and sewer rates, no layoff's, new hires, building and leasing community center when we own the one we have.
Two fire stations on this small island.Maybe we should invite the Gov. here to see how paradise operates. I'm sure he could help us the overtaxed [old]seniors who live here.
Maybe he can show our manager and council how it is done because they do not have a clue.

Written on City Council Budget Sub-Committee: Councilors delve into minutiae of Marco Island’s municipal expenditures:

Never mind the children, what about the senior's who have poor eyesight? As far as the bike paths go, dog's and their owners love them. And also the male dogs love those lights in Mackle park. It's like having their own hydrants

Written on Gov. Rick Scott talks jobs, immigration reform during visit:

Keep up the good work Gov. That's why I voted for you. Fossil do you think our civil servants are all clean and sober?
If they are clean they have nothing to worry about. Random should be mandatory for anyone dealing with the safety of all citizens.

Written on Marco grapples with paying for July 4 fireworks display:

Bryan says these are hard times/// Not hard enough if he wants a 6 million dollar community center.

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

in response to deltarome:

I was "shocked" to hear that Larry Magel is pushing to lower condo water bills and raise those of all the other users.
My cell phone plan has a base charge regardless if I use any minutes. My cable bill is the same whether I watch TV 24 hrs a day or none at all.

Why would you be shocked he is a condo owner. Do the condo owners pay all the charges I pay being a single home owner? I did not vote for the strp it was shoved down my throat.
The condo owners voted it in and I hope it gets shoved down their whatever. Magel is not looking out for my best interest just his Hideaway cronies.

Written on Marco City Council members keep watering schedule, reject easement request:

I agree!

Written on Marco police officer accused of abusing authority after felony traffic stop:

Marco Citizen,
I totally agree about all the BS that goes on here. The City is going down the toilet and these morons keep pulling the chain. Get serious and figure a way we all can come together and try to find a solution to fix the problem.

Written on Marco police officer accused of abusing authority after felony traffic stop:

What about the two elderly people who were run down outside of Porky's a few yrs back?He was killed and she suffered severe injuries.
The driver was never arrested or charged. I bet he wasn't tested either.
He belonged to someone who had some drag plus the cops said the couple was drinking.
drunking walking!

Written on Scaled-back community center among capital improvement requests to Marco Island Planning Board:

Has the old fire rescue boat ever been used to extinguish a real fire on a boat on Marco Island?

Written on Guest Commentary: Our Island needs the proposed community center:

in response to RayPray:

There are ZERO fires on Marco Island.

When is the last time you have encountered a burning building here?

That's why our Fire Department has so much free time for running side businesses and community & school outreach schmooze-fests

Been here since 1997. Never saw a burning building. Never saw a burning anything.

Written on Guest Commentary: Our Island needs the proposed community center:

I didn't know we had an old fire boat. Did they ever use it to put out a fire?
