Written on Tract K out of play for Marco charter high:

in response to MarcoDefender:

Sure, $30,000 of revenue from a lease compared to a Collier School District 2010 budget of $961 million dollars (yes, nearly a billion dollars folks).

It's like adding a glass of water into the Mackle Park lake and calling it favorable water management.

A nice example of your local government at work.

Excellent post.

Written on Letter to the Editor: Our taxes earn us a high school:


How does it feel to be completely intellectually dishonest by throwing around a nice number (70%) all over the place with nothing to back it up?

Written on Letter to the Editor: Empty-nesters say ‘yes’ to charter high school:

I went to a private high school with a graduating class of around 80 kids. We had an arts/theater program, virtually all sports (except football) for both males and females, a music/band program, excellent academics (including honors and AP programs), foreign languages (spanish, french, latin), too many elective classes to list, and so much more. Did that not sufficiently expose me to your version of "real life", Ed Issler?

Written on Marco Island political group holds mock election caucus:

"Mike Yashko, an attorney who teaches a course called “The Role of Government in the Lives of Free People,” will speak to the group Oct. 28 at 7 p.m. at the Marco Presbyterian Church."

I'll be there, sounds great.

Written on Collier School Board delays decision on Marco Academy charter school:

Why would it matter if the high school issue was on the ballot? I see no reason why if there is no tax implications for the citizens.

Written on Collier School Board delays decision on Marco Academy charter school:

Since when is racial diversity a prerequisite to high school education? Do inner city blacks have diversity in their schools? Do heartland whites have diversity in their schools?

I'm not sure why I even addressed your ridiculous argument since it is a straw man fallacy. How do you know the Marco high school will be nothing but whites when we have "diversity" in both the elementary and middle schools here on the island?

Written on Collier asks state for $750K in BP money to advertise its oil-free beaches:

Hey Klab, I thought Marco was going to be inundated with oil by this point anyway... according to your expertise that is, haha.

Wow, thanks for showing the entire population that reads the Eagle that you are a complete dunce.

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

Just take 5 min and look at the people going in and out of that store (at least in-season) and loitering near West Marine and the ATT Store waiting for their fixes and tell me there isn't a problem there.

Then I guess you need to surround yourselves in a plastic bubble since it is not the entire world's responsibility to placate you.

Written on Atlantic system has chance of growing into 1st named storm of season :

It's not a tropical storm or depression. At this point it is an Invest.

Written on ‘No imminent threat’ though Crist adds Collier, Lee to oil emergency zone:

You're wrong, just like in the other comment section.

Written on Small part of oil slick reaches powerful current:

"The coast of Southwest Florida from Tampa Bay to the Everglades is a "Forbidden Zone" for surface-based transport of ocean water to the coast, and is probably not at risk from this week's Loop Current oil."

Written on Small part of oil slick reaches powerful current:

The oil is not coming to SWFL via the loop current. You have no idea what you're talking about. Tampa down to the everglades is most likely safe but the keys/east coast is another matter.

Fossil, you hit the nail on the head.

great letter and great news. I am looking forward to August 2011.

can you cite those particular studies?

Written on Letter To The Editor: Ignore naysayers; Help Haiti:

You do realize that Italy is 1/30th the size of the United States, right? So if Italy was the same size as the United States you could speculate that they would have donated roughly 240,000,000.

Written on PHOTOS/DOCS/BLOG: It's official, Kiester wins in Marco ballot recount:


Don't take this the wrong way, but if you no longer reside on this "sandbar" (as you put it), why are you still investing time into posting on the marco eagle blog about the Marco Island election?

Written on VIDEO/PHOTOS: Blog from first day of abortions at Planned Parenthood:

Char Wendle, are you kidding me?

Referring to pro-life protesters as "terrorists"? What an intellectually dishonest charge that only a morally bankrupt individual would be able to come up with. All in all, I guess it's of little surprise.

Thanks to the Eagle for the moment by moment updates though. It was almost as exciting as listening to the play by play last night on Monday Night Football. What a joke.

Written on Marco charter high school plans land locked?:

This is great news.

Written on MICA: Fourth of July at Residents’ Beach:

Sounds great! The flyover will be a new highlight of the MICA 4th of July event.

Written on VIDEO UPDATE: Citizens’ movement for Marco high school picks up momentum:

LOL gingerblue, I love it. Nice response. I went to a high school with a graduating class of 85 and then went on to college and law school.

Never once did I get asked how would I be able to succeed in college, law school, or life because I didn't have "necessary diverse opportunities". In fact, like your experiences, my small high school was a selling point during the admissions process!

Written on VIDEO UPDATE: Citizens’ movement for Marco high school picks up momentum:

since when do you need "diverse opportunities" in order to get into a good college?

Written on Islanders scream out for a Marco Island High School :

High school talk "started in bigotry"?

What a pathetic weasel... trying to frame the debate around those accusations.

Written on Youth surrounded by Sheriff's office, Marco Island Police cruisers after report of attack on Lely student:

LOL... yeah, why would anyone ever complain about Lely High?

Written on VIDEO/PHOTOS: Marco residents oppose Collier school district’s alternative energy plan for vacant land:

Who determines what "experiences" one needs to partake in before he or she can "make it" in the "real" world?

I went to a private high school with 300 students total, about 85 in my graduating class.

Written on VIDEO/PHOTOS: Marco residents oppose Collier school district’s alternative energy plan for vacant land:

agreed 25years. I don't understand the logic behind having a 400+ student middle school yet a 400+ student highschool is considered "impossible", a "bad idea", "unrealistic", etc.

Written on Will Marco set out to capture solar power? :

I agree, Marco needs a small highschool. Put some solar pannels on the school roof and let it supply some of its own power.

Written on Rice maintains 4-point lead:

Zzzz... have these "experts" predict next season against the spread and see how well they do.

Written on Marco Island’s newspaper is born:

LOL... what have you been looking up online Happy?

The reason why you are getting those ads/popups/etc is because at one point those phrases were searched and now your computer has some spyware on it that brings up targeted ads based on your interests!

Maybe Mrs.Happyonmarco isn't so "happy" afterall!

Not as bad as the joke with the pink polka dot house on Crescent in the tigertail area

Written on High turnout, early voting among Marco election characteristics:

Socialist #2 lost

Socialist #1 was victorious

A BOMB was dropped last night.

The cause of Liberty took a hit last night.

Written on Record vote expected on Marco, county :

The true shame is that Ron Paul was a victim of a major media blackout from Day 1 of his campaign. If he had received a fair shake in the media he likely would have been the R nominee, especially considering all his economic predictions proved to be accurate along with the BOMB (Bush/Obama/McCain Bailout). Congressman Paul did endorse Chuck Baldwin so I will throw my vote to the Constitution Party this time around. Unfortunately we will have to face the toughest 4 year stretch in the history of our nation (no matter who gets elected between McCain and Obama).

Written on Record vote expected on Marco, county :


I am very likely voting for Chuck Baldwin tomorrow. Barr might have a bigger impact on the polls but there's a lot with the libertarian party platform that I do not agree with. Constitution Party for me on Tuesday.

Written on Record vote expected on Marco, county :

Neither of those two socialists. Unfortunately, no matter who I vote for in the Presidential race stands any realistic chance. I am choosing between Bob Barr (libertarian) & Chuck Baldwin (constitution party).

Would love to have had the chance to vote for Ron Paul for President.
