Written on Connecticut man dies after being pulled from Marco Island lake:

Sad to hear of this but I do have a question that I think is worth posting. Marco Fire and Rescue is only about 3 minutes from Mackle Park. How did this man stay under water for 30 minutes before rescue was able to retrieve him. The park is crowded that time of day. Was it not reported properly? Was the response time slow? I think that there should be some follow up by city officials or reporters to answer these questions to make sure the this matter was handled appropriatly.

So GLADESGATOR does not mind paying a little fee to keep the beach clean. The very same dingdongs that complain when their rights are ignored and complain about politicians. So GLADESGATOR like the rest of the Issler-types just go along and find it OK to commit environmental crimes as long as its their buddies the ones doing it and its OK to illegally charge for beach access as long as its their buddies doing the charging.

Crimes? What crimes, pray tell? Can you imagine what your homeowners dues would be if you had to pay for a beach club like Resident's beach. Marco residents don't need gated communities and don't need amenities that cost gated subdivision owners hundreds of dollars a month. Be thankful if you live on Marco Island and start respecting the law. Kramer should be ashamed!

Written on Marco civic group sues to block miniature golf course approved by city officials :

in response to marcosandflea:

Here is a suggestion for those being sued by MICA ... MICA has an illegal access to the beach. Decades old decision by Florida Supreme Court ruled that restricting access to any beach is illegal. By forcing tax-paying citizens of the community to pay to access the beach under the ruse that it is to park is illegal. So those being sued by MICA ought to force them off that illegal sham they have been perpetrating for decades thanks to their incestuous relationship with the syndicate (dare we now say criminal syndicate since they were fined by the EPA for violating the Clear Air Act?) And how about how MICA was silent when the good old boys were pumpming millions of gallons of toxic acid into the Gulf of Mexico because they supported the syndicate fraud sewer project? Or how MICA can NOT read a deed and therefore remained silent when those high school idiots wanted to build the school on the tract where the eagle is? We pray that MICA goes to court and all of these legal abuses get exposed by whomever they are suing.

Your rant is a bunch of nonsense! It is so nice to have access to the beach and the beautiful parks for a minimal fee.

Written on Marco civic group sues to block miniature golf course approved by city officials :

It seems to me that Attorney Kramer is showing utmost disrespect for the rule of law and procedure. He has been well aware of MICA's stand and even represented MICA on the issue.

If he respected the rule of law he could have filed for a Declaratory Action to have a court rule on the issue before he started construction. He well know there would be a lawsuit but made himself bigger than the law and MICA and its members. I would hope people that respect the law would chose lawyers who also respect and honor the law.

Written on Marco Island voters oppose overnight walk-in clinic tax, subsidy:

in response to 2themoon:

Heres a real crazy idea; how about taking the $$$ we spend on the redundant MIPD and MIFD and put it towards OUR own island 24 hr medical facilty... Oh wait a minute I think I'm steppn on some Marco syndicate toes, my idea will never fly.

Not a bad idea. Staff it with a counselor so that anyone tempted to commit a crime could stop by for coffee and doughnuts and chat. And lets add a social worker to deal with families that are stressed and may otherwise be tempted to turn to crime. Lets close of the bridges to the island and don't anyone from the east coast cross.

While we are at it let’s nix code enforcement and instead streamline procedures for a common law nuisance action making it easy for someone who leaves cars in their yard to be sued for nuisance. The fired department must be replaced by a volunteer fire department. Lets require the beachfront hotels and condo to hire private security to patrol the beaches and adjacent roads. Commission the coast guard auxiliary and the Marco Yacht Club to patrol the waters.

Now what else can we do to get government off our back and our sticky fingers out of the cookie jar.

Have you ever heard of Health Department where poor people can get medical help on a walk in basis. Maybe some of you never experienced real life.

Written on Marco Island voters oppose overnight walk-in clinic tax, subsidy:

What if the county wanted to keep a local dougnut shop open all night so late night tokers could satisfy their munchies and just increased everyones tax because it would not otherwise be profitable for the doughnut shop to stay open all night? If the county is going to provide public health care then provide it equally to everyone but don't tax people for the convience of some who want access to a walk in clinic any time of the day or night. This is an outrage and the some head should roll for putting this s----- thing on th ballot. It's not the amount of the tax, its the principle of the thing.

Written on Top Marco Island cop re-ups: Don Hunter to stay on as police chief; Riviere announces two-year contract extension :

Does he really make 150k a year?. It seems that would be enough for three full time officers. I really don't kmow what the Chief does so I can't be critical, I am just asking. Does the chief do anything that warrants a salary with benefits like that?
Look at all the people running for city commission with many years of business or other experience willing to serve with virtually no pay. Why is it that we have to pay through the ying yang for a police chief?

I commend the Marco Island Parks and Rec department for all these wonderful events.

To all the readers of this article can you imagine how many more events could be run and revenues earned when a new Community Center is built. More and more programs, generate more revenues. Also, "if you build it, they will come." Time for the Council to make a decision that is good for the Island - build a new safe, state of the art Community Center at Mackle Park!!!!!

Yes, I agree. There are so many great places on Marco for the tourists. Why not make the Island and it's tourist tax base ( after all commercial development took most of the beaches and little is left of old Florida ambiance ) at least pay for a top-of-the-line community center. You folks that are afraid to pony up another 5 bucks a year in taxes simply don't understand that the value of life of the community is worth the cost of one value meal at Mcdonald's.

in response to RayPray:

Unlike a genuine paper -- such as the NYT, WaPO, or WSJ -- 90% of what's published by the Eagle doesn't represent true journalism.

It's just puff pieces for local bigwigs or camouflaged advertisements.

Tell me, have you ever read a negative bar or restaurant review here? One that couldn't have been written by the owner himself?

Yet when you check YELP, you find half the people who patronized these joints were unsatisfied. When you check state food inspection records you find numerous health violations. Why don't these get mentioned in the oh so positive review.

Our country is suffering one of the worst real estate busts ever. Yet every Eagle real estate article has some cloud cookooland local 'professional realtor' doofus blowing how the market is turning and all the smart money is jumping in this minute.

A real paper might check this against the Schiller Home Index, but not here.

So the sole antidote against these Pravada-Lite stories is the blogs.

You want diabetes-inducing ultra-positivity, just read the articles and reviews and eschew these evil contradictory blogs.

Better yet take this Chamber of Commerce bubbling Babbittry 'Leadership' training.

Only check you IQ at the door....

<<<nota bene: Sorry to report I am extremely happy>>>

Just about every Chamber has some sort of leadership training class.
I am not sure how much it is about leadershop verses detailed orientation of the community and the economy but at least they are trying.

I see little constructive in your criticism so why don't you do what the other poster suggested and just go somewhere else. I bet you will be just as critical.

I don't bother editing my post for you so don't bother with the nitpicks. I could care less. There is no way I would post my name here and have you put me on the black list for every police officer in this town. I hope and pray they are honest.

And as for benefits check out what the city pays and as far as pensions, what pensions, police and fire get those. You just want to spew negativity and I would bet you have not even bothered to call and check what city employee benefits really are. Ask them big man/woman, oh I forgot you do not believe anything city employees would say would you, they are all liars. Feel sorry for you and as for MarcoIslandGuy, he identified himself, brother, most of you negative bloggers would not understand brotherly love or support.

Now is someone going to ask who I am?

I don't care who you are. Apparently you are another government worker hanging out in an office or at the water cooler while drawing a easy check and accruing a ridiculous pension. Otherwise, you would have simply answered the question and told me what she does (other than driving for her husband around when he is drunk), exlained her qualifications, and described her compensation in pay and benefits. I just wanted to know if her position and pay is a justified expense to the taxpayers.

I would, however, to see the city run efficiently. In addition, I would like to see the pension system for public employees should be reviewed and adjusted where warranted.
To be honest, due to the anonymity of these comments, I spoke in a less diplomatic tone than I would in real life.
On the other hand, it seems to me that officer Carr's brother would show a bit more restraint in making comments. I certainly hope your brother performed his duties with more dignity and discretion and that he does not have a lose tong like his brother.

well you s----- hillwilliam, I don't know what her pay or duties are and you do not either.Thats the point you object to something you do not care enough about to find the facts about. Do some research then blog your real objections. A person is not on the public dole when they have earned the entitlement through service. Chief Carr sign on as chief to do a job with retirement as part of the agreement. Thats when you object not after they have fulfill their part of the obligation. Had you Taken the time to join the military serve your time apply for a job with a Police department get hired spend 23 years doing the job attend advanced schools for training,work your way through the ranks, then help found MIPD stay, be picked as chief then at 65 retire again someone would be paying you to be on the "dole". Now let me explain as best I can code enforcement, it is what keeps ignorant Hillwilliams like you from having cars in your yard up on blocks. When things have order to them property values go up( or at least not go down as far)the tax base then goes up. You see one of the first rules of the universe is the natural order is chaos it takes energy to have order. So for Marco Island or any other city to have some order someone has to enforce code. Now if you would like to be informed I am sure her salary and jod discription are public record go look it up. Then you will be an informed ignorant hillwilliam. Do that and maybe you will have some credibility.

You don't know me and never will. Obviously you are of low social standing. All you can do is make s----- remarks and undertake personal attacks.

Name calling and bullying, you act like a kid on the playground. If my suspicions were unfounded you would just answer the question. What does she do and what are her qualifications? How much is her salary, benefits and pension? What are we paying her and what are we paying her for?
You can spout your childish insults all day long make unsubstantiated and ridiculous claims about the level of my educations; who cares? Anyone reader worth my time will recognize your ad hominem attacks as a way to evade the issues.

It is silly of you to mention Carr’s record in By the way; it was so silly of you to mention Mr. Carr’s Viet Nam record relation in response to questions about job duties, pay scale and retirement benefits. Just because he was in Viet Nam does not mean he should be on the public dole?

I am sure you think you are a loyal American and support the troops in combat, although I will bet you never served, then be happy you can support a highly decorated Viet Nam vet such as Thom Carr. You are a coward who hides behind the blogs to spill your hate.

Tell me what she does and what she is paid Mr. Spelling bee genius and we will both know. I could care less if Carr was decorated in Viet NAM. If he was smart he would have stayed away and helped get us out of that s----- and worthless war.
