KLAUS..... yes.... RHETORIC!! My day is now complete to see you speak jargon.. I knew you would show up at some point and keep believing in the words BHO says!! Do yourself a favor... get off the blogs and enjoy what is left of you life. Your opinions and rebuttals just keep waisting your own time!!! Run for Mayor, City Council, anything..but don't push your viewpoints on deaf ears!

Written on Obama: Nation stronger, needs GOP backing:

Come on KLAUS.... where is your love for the Great President... I just can't wait to read your nonsense rhetoric, just like the "Great President" words, words, words, rhetoric, words, words, words, more rhetoric

Written on Novelist Randy Wayne White says tarpon tournament unsporting, restaurants pull sponsorship :

This story is missing PLENTY of FACTS!!!

First is "Doc Ford's" pulling their sponsorship yet the PTTS website still lists a sponsored boat. In fact I saw this boat fishing a few days ago with clients, and they were fishing "ethically"! PTTS rules and regulations state circle hooks may only be used. They are the only hooks on board these boats!!!
"....boats dropping artificial baits called jigs into the tightly packed school of fish and then jerking their lines upwards to snag a fish rather than waiting for the fish to bite.

Critics of the practice say many of the fish are hooked in the side, tail or belly, making it more likely they will not survive or will become easy prey for sharks."

What terrible publishing! First, you can't "snag" fish using a circle hook! They were designed to prevent that practice. It's impossible!! So way to go NDN for doing research on this. Obviously writinga piece on fishing as a non-fiherman is wonderful media practice! Secondly, they are listed as easy prey for sharks. You are kidding me right. Sharks always follow these fish, year round. They are opportunistic feeders and will eat when they want to. Do you relaize how many fish are in the pass, 100's of thousands, and the likely hood of a shark singling out that one fish... good luck!

Finally, the teams that fish the tournaments and charter captains alike protect this fishery like a child. It's is their income and livelyhood! These captains care more for this fishery than anyone who writes , handle the fish properly, and always practice ethics before results. That's called sport fishing, not catching!

Mr. White as a former guide shame on you!! AS for "Doc Ford's" sponsorship, I look forward to seeing the advertising still on the water!!

Written on Marco Island’s City Council resolves Bald Eagle Drive lighting controversy:

EMERGENCY BEACH RESTORATION ON HIDEAWAY??!! They are their own tax district. There is no public access to these beaches, yet John. Q Public taxpayer money is being spent on this! What an OUTRAGE!! I demand my access to these beaches, NOW!!! Absolutly a joke. How much will this cost me to restore something I can't utilize?? Ask for County money, not City money! Nice to see how this was just slid right past everyone. Congrats Council, continue the deceit.

Written on Abandoned Flying Fifty sailboat owner off the hook:

Ambiguities in the law, No surprise there!!

Youd think that on a $90,000 loss he'd actually want to recover the boat.... there is a whole lot more undisclosed here...

Written on Mackle Park to go to the dogs :

For all Marco "residents" who oppose this dog park....
Just sounds like because it doesn't fit into your perfect way of life others should not have any rights either. You chose to live in a home next to a "community" park, what did you expect? The key word here is "community". Aren't people who live in the community of Marco supposed to be nice to each other and treat others like neighbors? I just don't understand how someone has such a rotten life living in paradise that they have to bring others down to feel better about themselves and their way of life. I see this happen time and time again, from this dog park issue, to the Condo Association Gustapo crying about a light left on, etc etc. People do yourselves a favor and start living to the "Golden Rule".

I look forward to the day my dog runs in this park and brings a smile to your face by her silly antics, catching frisbees out of mid air, and rolling around in the grass. Think about how great her life is with no worries and having fun. Maybe you should think about the last time you felt that way!!
