Written on Letter to the Editor: Smokehouse Bridge - What is meeting design standards?:

I agree with you completely. it's bad business to put a band aid on a this problem knowing replacement is necessary in the next 5 years. I'm a runner on the island and i can tell you first hand that there have been numerous times that crossing the bridge with oncoming cyclists or pedestrians is very dangerous, especially at night. We will all regret a decision not to correct this when someone is hurt or possibly killed due to the narrow sidewalks. This stretch of Collier is heavily used by residents and visitors to the island that enjoy the walk for exercise and to frequent the shops in the area, not just the residents who live in the immediate area. it's an expensive undertaking, but in my opinion necessary and I have faith that the council will make the correct decision for all the residents on the Island.

Written on Marco Island looks to increase taxes by 20 percent, beef up reserves:

I'm a new homeowner to Marco Island, as my wife and I purchased a property as a second home. it's quite sad to see that the local government is blind to the world around us and continues to spend as if times are good.
What ever happened to the concept of spending within your means. I guess i'll fell right at home here, as my full time residence is in chicago and this feels like more of the same.
