I’ve often told friends that I don’t vacation away from Southwest Florida as I feel the Naples/ Marco Island area is tough to beat. Well, the author has me re-thinking my logic. I look forward to more from Kay Dougherty to see if she can further expand my world! Additionally, I had the great pleasure of meeting Ms. Dougherty on Marco last weekend and not surprisingly, she is just as intelligent and funny in person…….pretty good dancer, too!

I feel I got an “insider’s look.” Can’t wait to see where Kay lands next!

Would love to hear about other locations that combine nature and culture.

Learning about the hardships and constant roadblocks these people faced while continuing to persevere, as well as knowing it was all based on fact, made this a quick read. The pictures and poetry add an extra special touch as you are getting a glimpse of the authors family history. I have shared this book with friends and colleagues who enjoyed it as much as I did. I’m looking forward to Jeff Whichello’s next release.

Comment on Contact Us by Bill+Harris http://www.coastalbreezenews.com/contact-us/comment-page-1/#comment-59077 Sun, 10 Aug 2014 20:39:40 +0000 http://coastalbreezenews.com/index.php/?page_id=555#comment-59077 Smokehouse Bay Bridge on Marco Island. Well, the numbers, costs, and dates keep changing. What else did we expect? To address Councilor Honig’s comment in the May 19th meeting that “Mister Harris’s comments can not stand without comment”, and that “this IS not, and WILL not, be a $12Million bridge”, I offer the following figures: $7,625,328 contract with Quality Enterprises; between $530,157 and $650,000 CEI costs to TY Lin; $400,000 for landscaping; $1,881,338 interest on the loan; $2,000,000 paid to TY Lin for design work; $100,000 design charettes; $95,000 paid to Cardno TBE; that all adds up to well over 12 million dollars, for the Smokehouse Bay bridge. These figures are a matter of public record. Of course, Mr Honig doesn’t think we should add things like the 1.8 Million dollars for interest, even though we (the taxpayers) will have to pay that. And I partially agree with him – this is probably not a 12 Million dollar bridge, but that’s what we will have to pay for it. And then, the prime contractor (QE), along with our city’s management and oversight, cannot even put together a plan that would ensure all the prerequisites (like getting permission and permits to install utility poles on private property) are planned for and executed in sufficient time. Otherwise, Mr Medwedeff and the Marriott have wasted the million bucks they spent to buy the votes to have the Marriott’s expansion approved, and the bridge construction expedited. And now, two of our esteemed Councilors want to be reelected so they can continue in this fine fashion. Shameful!! … and I believe there’s a clause in our contract with QE that says if we, the city, are at fault for any delays, they (QE) will be absolved of any penalties when the project completion is delayed. Well, guess what? We’ve already caused delays. And the advertised 8 months project is false. Notice to proceed was July 1st, 2014. Advertised final completion is August 1, 2015. Maybe my math is rusty, but that sure sounds like 13 months – NOT 8 months. Perhaps the Council can inform me of the new math that they’re using.
