Written on Beach shuttle, off-site parking and Tigertail Beach top list of Marco Island's 'no swale parking' solutions :

Great idea using shuttles from designated parking areas to the beach access areas all along Collier Blvd.
The question of parking and shuttles for the Old Marco area is a different issue.
The question that should be asked is, how does the City allow a restaraunt like Old Marco Pub expand to 130 seats when the entire building has inadequate parking to begin with?
How does the City allow all the restaraunts at 599 S. Collier (Davinci's @ 300 seats, Capt. Briens @ 150 seats, Nacho Mama's @ 150 seats, Konrads @ 150 seats,and the Movie Theater, and all the outdoor seating for the restaraunts)wth known inadequate parking?

Written on PHOTOS Talk Derby to Me: Upon a Star Foundation ‘passes the hat’ at Marco Brewery:

Sabotage!!!
Absolute shame that a restaraunt that donates 10K in proceeds to such a worthwhile event as the Upon a Star Foundation, only to have the event sabotaged by someone playing with the satellite dish on the roof, so that no one could watch the Derby Race!
Shame, Shame, Shame! Jealousey never gets you anywhere!

Written on Marco Island Academy readies for expansion:

Why is there no mention of the police being at the school last week, when one of the coaches had his hands on a student chocking him?

Written on Bike collisions with vehicles on rise on Marco; three bicycle committee members hit:

Nice picture! Really resposible rider with a dog in the basket, so when the dog panics and jumps out in front of an oncoming car and causes an accident, it will still be the drivers fault!
After $5 million for shared use sidewalks bicyclists ride down Collier Blvd. in the roadway causing cars to veer around them.
Bicycle paths on San Marco, but bicyclists ride 2 abreast causing cars to swerve into the oncoming lane.
S. Barfield bicylists ride 3 abreast taking up the lane causing drivers to swerve around them.
Inlet Dr. no bike paths, with bicyclists riding 3, sometimes 4 abreast racing up and down the hills and on the wrong side of the road into corners with complete disregard for their safety and disregard for vehicles.
You are absolutely right Dave Bear, "Where's the cops"?

Absolute shame that Chief Hunter had to apologize, or that anyone had to apologize to Joey Pizza!
He should have to apologize to the island for being an #$@^*le and serving such lousy pizza!

Written on Six-month report: Marco police Chief Chief Don Hunter knows what he has, what he’s missing:

There were 135 larcenies in 2010, thats 2.6 per week, 132 in 2009 at 2.5 per week,since Christmas there has been 4 just in the Estaes section of Marco,not one person caught, and it's our fault because I left my slider unlocked, my car door unlocked or something was left in "my" yard. With the recent breakins, not one word of caution printed in this rag.
As a victim of one of these crimes, I say Bull poo poo!
With the amount of policemen we have patroling the streets of Marco, (this tiny little island) these things should not be happening. It's pretty easy to pick out the gangs of East Coast, East Naples, or the Golden Gate trash that drive onto this island.
Need intelligence reports? Here's one for you! Your detectives don't do crap!
Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Two pickup trucks cruise the neighbohoods every Wed.
1 Adam 12 Be on the lookout for two vehicles, a 1996 or '97 Ford pickup white in color w/ blue trim, the other a 2001-4 Dodge pickup gray in color dented body, both vehicles contain two occupants and the vehicles are over loaded with mechandise of all kinds.

Written on Letter to the Editor: Not a ‘swale’ idea:

ajm3s: Exactlly, enough is enough already!
The swales are City property, not mine,not spending anymore of my money for as select few on this island.
After spending monies to make all these bikepaths, now Pinter wants to widen all the sidewalks, and on most of the main streets where he wants to widen the sidewalks to 6' Pinter will have to remove the new trees that he planted. Talk about a waste of money! What a joke!

Written on Marco Island considers city ambulance service, talks to Naples leaders :

Jerry Gibson!!! Are you hitting the bottle again?
It is an absolute shame that a gentleman like Mr. Anderson passed away, but to run around like Chicken Little,spouting "people are dying out there", "people are dying out there" is pathetic for a city councelor.
Put the blame where it lies, With NCH and our poor excuse of a once fairly decent emergency center.
Then again is this a way for Smurphy to increase his department?
Hey, wait a minute! Gerry's right. How's Murphy going to save lives if he can't figure out how to get a gurney across a shell diveway?

Written on Letter to the Editor: Seeking info on attack:

It is absolutely amazing that this freakin' rag and the NDN carry nothing about this Marco Island crime or others similar to this, but carry such frivilous articles such as, Man charged in kitty litter atttack!
It is amazing that it has been kept quiet by the so called "Leaders" of this island.
Maybe it's time to stand in front of City Hall with signs letting the public know that this island is in fact UNSAFE especially for women.
Maybe it's time to due a little armed citizen on patrol and rid the island of all the trash that's moved onto the island the last few years.

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

Oh give me a break!!!!
Rony Joel, how can you sue someone for telling it like it is?
With all the manipulating and coniveing things you did while working for the City of Marco, you deserve everything that happens in the rest of your proffesional career.
You're the scum of politics/earth and that's not libelous, it's the truth.

Written on Marcophiles: Unlocked doors a welcome sign for potential thieves:

So after 27 years, I have to start locking the doors to my house and vehicles?
Is there crime on Marco now?
Or has the City Council and Manager reverted breaking and entering instead of raising taxes?

Written on Marco Island man charged with five DUIs in string of hit-and-run crashes:

Mr. Wallace was locked up after each charge, but was then released.
Mr. Wallace is innocent of all charges until proven guilty in court.
Mr. Wallace definately has a few screws loose.
I just hope that he's not allowed to coach football on the island anymore, what a great role model!!!!

in response to August8:

"Don't Forget"
WHO was the one that mentioned this first, don't forget !!!!

Excellemt choice in every single respect, a Florida Police Chief, experience and reputation are impecable, Marco is very lucky.
It might also say, that not all things were great with what has been going on, it happens and now this agency can really be placed on the map.
Celebrate Marco, you are finally there !!

It wasn't you that mentioned it first. Check the NDN, when it was first announced that Carr was retiring.

Written on Daily News: Marco Island city manager held back public documents regarding Hunter hiring:

Reviere's "lack of public record law knowledge" is no excuse!
His general lack of knowledge is his real excuse!
Saunders is a typical lawyer turned politician hack, turned hack lawyer, still sucking the public teat, because that all he knows how to do!
I was the first to tell you that it was going to be Hunter, and the deal was struck within hours of Carrs announcement!

Written on Can the BAC make Marco Island's cul-de-sacs beautiful again?:

I think as property owners, it's time that we send a small message to City Council. Start taking care of this island and not their little special intrests.
Stop mowing the swales in front of your homes, and when the grass is about 2 feet high lets see what the council will do now! It is City property, so let them maintain it.

Hoorah!!!!
George, for once I have to agree with eye1_235971,
better yet, take your butt back to the east coast where you came from 5 years ago.
Ajm3s, you are lucky that you live in a neighborhood, where everybody talks and helps each other. Most neighborhoods on Marco have 1 or 2 of these little busy bodies like George.
It is Independance Day and where your from, they probably have neighborhoods that shut down the street and have block parties and everyone has a good time.
Think that happens here? No!!!!!! Especially not in Georges neighborhood.

Written on Naples city manager gets protection after ex-worker vows to ‘shoot Moss in head’:

in response to ajm3s:

"Naples City Manager Bill Moss is seeking a protective order against a former city employee who police reports say threatened his life."

"Wallace’s personnel file shows that while he was continuing to receive high marks from city officials, he also may have been going through a rough patch personally."

"Moss said he believed he was the only city employee being threatened."

Maybe its me, but I think the city of Naples employees and citizens may need a restraining order against Mr. Moss. If history matters, at least the citizens of Marco Island can offer testimony.

And please do not tell me Mr. Joel will be offered the opening now available. Is this the setup for a Moss-orchestrated opening.

Rony Joel will not be hired by Moss, instead Moss will hire Olmstead,or would we be lucky enough if Moss surprised everyone with an annoucement that the esteemed city manager of Marco, is his choice.

Excellent. There was a comment in the hyperlink blog from the investigative reporter, will this story will never make the Eagle. Let us see!

Or perhaps this stuff on the internet and blog sites is fictitious. Welcome to the new age of news feeds.

Kudos to Mario Sanchez for blowing the whistle!!
Next stop for Joel is the City of Naples, there's now an opening for him, created for him by his former boss, Moss.

in response to August8:

HappyHorowitce ???? Uh,

explain please?? Details, not slander.

Oh, and if you need that quick of response by fire, overdone for sure, perhaps rent a condo nect to the closest hospital.

Fact: Reviere had the city mechanic install lights on his personal vehicle
Fact: Reviere's comment and idea on community policing.
Fact: Reviere stated "we have people pulling guns out there"'
Fact: Reviere commented and had the idea of buying a new boat to allow two city employees to sail around the canals checking on seawalls.
Fact: Reviere is not a real Dr. his Phd is missing a few classes.
Fact: Murphy is not a good chief, great at being a politician.
Fact: aquestion is not slander.
Question: If you are a donut stuffer on duty as RAYPRAY stated, you might start worrying about a new line of work or another dept. to transfer to.

Written on Marco Island City Council okays dollars to operate second fire station full-time:

MarcoIslandWoman writes "Thank you Chief Murphy, you made a great job".
Does that mean he made a great job for himseif?
Does that mean he made a great job of screwing the taxpayers again?
Speaking of the MIPD, it seems that our City Guru has the bright idea of Community patrols, in season have a hightened police force to patrol the island, and in the off season cut the force down to only two officers on patrol.
Hey, maybe that's why Quagmire had those lights installed on his personal vehicle.
"We have people pulling guns out there" according to Phoney PHD.
I can see it now, a crime is reported, and the city sends all their employees with their NEW embroidered T shirts to act as the backup SWAT Team.
And I wonder who on the code board is embroidering the new T shirts?

Written on Marco Island City Council okays dollars to operate second fire station full-time:

All well and good, so called faster response times.
What I do not understand is that Station 51 can be improved for only $16,000, when Murphy had originally asked for $350,000 just a little over a month ago.
I would like to know what the firefighters did "on their own" that it created such a huge savings, if this is true maybe Murphy should be in charge of the entire city and get all the other city employees to work "on their on". Can you imagine the savings.
Seriously, what did they do "on their own"?
Did they have a permit if one was needed?
Did they perform all the nessesary building code improvments?
Were they qualified to perform these improvements?
Is this another case of the City aquiring permits on their own or with a secret sweetheart deal with a contractor?

Written on Forum: Email sets off flag debate on Marco Island:

One disgruntaled and jealous lawn monkey sounding off against another.
Speaking of lawn monkeys...has anyone seen the city managers new lights?
It seems as though, that Quagmires personal vehicle with the special (let everyone know who I am) vanity plates has just had emergency lights installed.
These lights were installed at the city garage and were paid for at taxpayers expense.
The price tag..around $3000.
Also, it seems like Quagmire wants to buy a new boat, so that Code Enforcement can hire (2) two people to ride around all the canals to do seawall inspections and special code enforcement.

It's too bad that unhappy horowitz is so negative. whether we are screaming, stuttering or ranting at least we are out there trying to make a difference in kids lives. Not hiding behind user names and putting down every activity and endeavor. Take a look at all 118 of unhappy's blogs. every single one of them is negative and some are down right disrespectful and prejudice. Here's to striving for less negativity and more support and enthusiasm for our kids and student athletes.

Well Chris,

Do you really think that screaming and degrading are a successful way to mentor a child and "make a differance in a kids life".

I have a great idea!!!!!
Lets have Joey go to Naples and steal their fire boat for Chief Sparky and it will save the City $225K and then we'll have the president of the Restaruant Owners Association give him an award for "serpant of the year"
Wait a minute can you give yourself an award?
AWWWW who cares,it will make for a great picture, Vip Grover handing Joey a trophy.
Then Joey loses the trophy to another bookie and then claims it as stolen, so as to collect on the insurance.
Isin't that right Vip?

It's not from selling lousy pizza!

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

in response to RayPray:

"Terese Glasser...president of the island’s Optimist Club...said many fellow parents support the new center but their opinions are not being heard...."

Here is why the Optimist Club exists:

1. To enable porked-up aging guys, unimportant in our real world, to get their rocks off by strutting around the football field and growling at innocent kids.

2. To promote bogus values for success in life to these unsuspecting victims, while accelerating the destruction of their immature brains and their joints by violent encounters.

For young boys football is an especially dangerous activity:

From: Sports Illustrated:

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vaul...

"...when the researchers started dragging in apparently healthy non-concussed players for memory tests and MRI's to establish a control group, they were surprised to discover that players had impaired brain functioning despite not having suffered a concussion. Ultimately, the study found that the sheer number of hits that a player had taken over the previous week, completely irrespective of whether a concussion had been suffered, was the best predictor of brain impairment."

"this is particularly scary, because it means that the vast majority of brain damage in football players might be occurring in the absence of any easily recognizable symptoms...."

>>> Why must the rest of us squander $million$ just so these reprehensible bozos can feel relevant one day each week?
