Inc. my father came to Goodland in the 1950′s and being an avid fisherman fell in love with Goodland. Curcie Bros. Inc. was founded by my father Ted Curcie and his brother John Curci (Uncle John spelled his name without the “e”.) My father was a land developer and engineer. Much of today’s Goodland was dredged up from the gulf bottom. My brother and I use to play on the mile of pipe line leading to the dredge. Goodland lake was created from dragline and dredge. I remember Margie and Alex fondly and remember when their Marco Lodge moved from Marco to Goodand. Margie made the best guava jelly I have ever had and Alex nicknamed me “grits” for my favorite breakfast food. I would have breakfast at the Marco lodge, Alex would wait on the tables and Margie the chef ( a very good one) I was friends with their grand daughter Wendy.. Alex would gas up my little aluminum boat while I ate and I would then go next door to Mr. Bitner’s marina for a mullet to use as bait. I was about 10 or 11 years old then. I would be gone most of the day all over those islands. I also remember the “Hermit” who lived on the island across from Bitner’s. I knew Herb and Betsy at the Idle Hour and went there for cheeseburgers. I loved Goodland and some of my best childhood memories are Goodland, Marco, Caxambus, Induan Hill and Cape Romano but, it was the folks I knew Cappy and miss Tommie Kirk, Herb and Betsy, Alex, Margie and Wendy that Made those memories so good.

Comment on Cape Romano Uncovered by James Munn http://www.coastalbreezenews.com/2012/09/07/cape-romano-uncovered/comment-page-1/#comment-37250 Thu, 20 Mar 2014 14:07:10 +0000 http://www.coastalbreezenews.com/?p=23986#comment-37250 Thank you for the article. I plan on building my dome home in a three more years, however in the center of Central Florida, so I love reading about other dome home experiences. To bad the Department of Evironmental Protection wouldn’t let them build the sea wall. I am sure the dome would have lasted for many years to come.

Comment on Farewell Goodland… by Stacia Kellett http://www.coastalbreezenews.com/2014/02/08/farewell-goodland/comment-page-1/#comment-36734 Mon, 24 Feb 2014 02:03:55 +0000 http://www.coastalbreezenews.com/?p=36430#comment-36734 Natalie, I have so much enjoyed your articles these past few years. Your voice is one I can relate to- growing up in Missouri and finally finding myself at home in Goodland. My husband and I have been admirers from afar- my favorite article being the one about the Goodland Dogs. May God Bless you and keep you safe in Colorado. If you ever get back to Goodland, you have a place to stay with us at Blue Heaven.

Best wishes, Scott and Stacia Kellett (friends of Cleve and Jane Ann Smith)

Comment on New name for Tigertail Beach? by carol http://www.coastalbreezenews.com/2013/08/08/new-name-for-tigertail-beach/comment-page-1/#comment-36445 Sun, 09 Feb 2014 17:58:49 +0000 http://www.coastalbreezenews.com/?p=33082#comment-36445 if you want to alleviate the congestion at South Beach, guess what….you need a BEACH!!! Mother Nature at times needs help as is evident by beach replenishment, so the argument to leave everything alone does not hold water….holding water is the main problem at Tigertail, there is not enough tidal flow and it gets more constrained every year. The Enviromentalist position is an extreme one, we have enough of that from Washington and guess what; it does not work, what we need is a position of moderation….if you believe “Build it and they will come”….it will not happen unless you can offer an equivalent area….BEACH=BEACH, not a stagnant body of water with poor sand conditions.

She is very impressed with her. Dr. Guidry has been my personal doctor for many years now and when I called his office to renew my maintenance medications, I found that he is out ill for 3-4 weeks? Anyway, Joni highly recommended your wife, and I would prefer to see a male doctor, and Joni mentioned you as her husband. Anyway, I am in need of some med re-fills, and was wondering if you are taking in new patients? Regardless, I do not want to continue with Dr. Guidry and I am looking for a new primary doctor here on Marco. Would you be interested? I do have to get in to see you quite soon as my meds are expiring and I will need re-fills. I am 66 years old, and I believe in fair health. Please let me know when I could get in to see you. I am a snowbird between Marco and Mpls. area of MN. Please let me know when and if you can see me. I am on medicare with a Colonial Penn supplemental policy. Again, basically with Dr. Guidry’s issues, I am doctorless, both here and in MN.

Thanks,

Rick Boynton

Comment on Top questions II by kay Dougherty http://www.coastalbreezenews.com/2013/07/30/top-questions-ii/comment-page-1/#comment-34415 Wed, 20 Nov 2013 15:17:06 +0000 http://www.coastalbreezenews.com/?p=33016#comment-34415 Hi Vickie! As a recent transplant from Boston it’s great to see someone else in Marco with my passion for travel! Two things I have started to caution people about in terms of travel insurance are assuming that you can get free treatment in the EU and thinking that if you buy insurance it covers you no matter what you do. Because of the economic crisis many EU countries can’t truly afford to be treating their own citizens so they are no longer willing to treat non-EU citizens for non life-threatening situations unless the person first produces proof of travel insurance coverage or pays out of pocket. The second is that if you do any sports when you travel see if your policy covers you for them. You have to read the boring details before you buy but there are almost always a list of exclusions from the obvious like bungee jumping to the vague “water sports”. My sister and I are avid snorkelers and sometimes do some minor bike rides and often have to pay an extra $10 or $15 to add that to our policies. Like most things with tons of fine print – you need to read the fine print! We always use insuremytrip.com because they let you compare across a wide spectrum of companies and policies and make the process as easy as such an annoying process can be!
