Letter to the Editor: Larry Sacher

Lettertoeditor

Recently, both Councilors Joe Batte and Bob Brown announced their intention to seek a second term on the Marco Island City Council. Marco Island NEEDS Joe Batte and Bob Brown! Having had the pleasure of serving on Marco Island City Council for a year and a half now with Joe Batte as well as the time Bob Brown has been on since replacing a former Councilor, I not only heartily endorse their  decision  to run for a 2nd term, but I also want to urge the Marco Island community to get behind Joe and Bob and support their candidacy.  My reasons ...

A Golden Reputation

By Melinda Gray melinbrya3@yahoo.com I love my job; it’s the vehicle through which I’ve met some of the most wonderful people since I’ve been here. Getting to know people is inherent in interviewing them for a story, and I recently had the pleasure of meeting, and interviewing one such family. The Katheins opened Golden Gate Jewelers of Marco on June 3, and contrary to what the name might suggest, they are not from Golden Gate, but rather Florida’s east coast. They are very excited that Marco Island is the location of their second store; owning a jewelry store here has ... Read More »

Vibrant Ljubljana

A ride along the river in Ljubljana is a peaceful diversion.

SPEAKING OF TRAVEL Vickie Kelber I have two words for people who say the capital cities of Europe are old and stagnant: visit Ljubljana (lyoo-BLYAH-nah). The capital of Slovenia and located approximately in the center of this small country, it is young and vibrant. With a population of about 280,000, the 60,000 students in this city help invigorate it. It is a captivating city in which to spend some time. Major rebuilding after an earthquake in 1895 has made this city an architectural delight with a mixture of some original and restored Baroque and Vienna Secession (art nouveau), along with ...

Keeping Old Traditions Alive

B4-CBN-6-27-14-10

ALL THAT GLITTERS Richard Alan harborgoldsmith@comcast.net I recently celebrated my 60th birthday. (Wow! Where did the years go, though I’ve been told I’m still a puppy by Marco standards!) Enough said about that. From now on, I stop celebrating every year. Traditions involving jewelry are a subject I still remember. I may be a baby boomer from the 1950s, but I’m not totally senile. Today’s generation hasn’t a clue about traditions of any kind. It’s a shame. I’m talking about presenting a delicate solid gold signet ring engraved with graceful interlocking script initials to a daughter or granddaughter for her ... Read More »

Local Student Contributes to Island Preserve

Otter Mound Preserve

By Nancy J. Richie A small oasis — 2.45 acres in total — holds archaeological, historical, cultural and biological importance for the history of Marco Island. It is the Otter Mound Preserve. Located in the southern area of the island at 1831 Addison Court, the “mound” that this preserve references is a relatively small part of a 70-80 acre Indian mound built by the Calusa Indians, estimated between 750 and 1,200 A.D. In more recent history — the early 1900s — it was the site of Caxambas Village, the Marco Island settlement for the clamming industry. It was a bustling ... Read More »

Naomi’s Get Out of Town Cheat Sheet

FOR THE LOVE OF CATS Naomi & Karina Paape chestergun@comcast.net Dear Fellow Felines:  So my furry friends, it’s that time of year again — the time when our staffs hyper ventilate and reach for their glasses of wine at the Weather Channel’s merest utterance of any or all of the following words/phrases: tropical storm, hurricane watch, category 3,4 or 5 monster storm, cone of danger, predicted path of travel, and target landfall. And thus is launched what can only be described as “hurricane mania,” that heart rate inducing frenzy that compels our staffs (remember, cats have staff, dogs have owners) ... Read More »

Do You Suffer From Sugar Hangovers?

B17-CBN-5-30-14-10

FITNESS DIVA Crystal Manjarres Crystal@PinkIslandFitness.com With the holidays behind and in front of us, I’m sure we have thrown our willpower to the wind on one occasion or the other. Whether it was Easter, Mother’s Day, birthdays, graduations, Memorial Day, or the upcoming Father’s Day, most of us have succumbed to evil spell of sugar. If you eat clean the majority of the time and can have one cheat treat and get back on the wagon, then this message is most likely not as crucial as it is for the occasional binge eater – you know the type: where one ...

I Can See Clearly Now

Eye

My confession: I am a surgery wimp. It would require an absolutely essential, life-threatening situation, not in the realm of “cosmetic,” before I would lie down and allow some white-coated, individual with a degree to use a knife to remove, repair, or adjust my body parts. I’m not sure which is more frightening – being unconscious or being unconscious while someone works on my body. I’m not that much of a control freak that I need to watch and give instructions, but a little knowledge is a very dangerous thing, and one cannot help but observe and worry about some ...

It’s only fair

A24-CBN-5-30-14-7

ArtfuL Life Tara O’Neill taraogallery@marcocable.com I have been judged and juried; I have judged and juried. Both roles are difficult. But, in the name of fairness, both are required of an artful life and, by my tally, a civilized life. I have juried multiple art exhibits and never is it easy, mostly because there is so much good work… How, after agonizing over 1st and 2nd place recipients, do you choose from the eight to 10 remaining contenders for 3rd place? Unlike jurors in a courtroom, jurors of art are invited; they are invited for their expertise and, oddly, their ... Read More »

Letter to the Editor: In Memory of Mike and JW….

Lettertoeditor

City Manager Roger Hemstadt visited our Rotary Club lunch and gave a fine speech. In the Q&A a hot topic was the issue over the Marriott expansion. Frankly the sentiment seemed to be: Why is this even an issue? The Marriott plan would boost the local economy. So why pay attention to any spoilers? Over the past few days I’ve chewed over the nature of the spoilers, points a, b & c. a)     Always we have some Luddites, mad about innovations, more technology. They complain, “It’s too much traffic, tourist, etc.” I suppose these luddites are befuddled by the competence ... Read More »

The Friendly Skies Bite Back

sky

By Carol Glassman The next time you decide to fly the friendly skies, I suggest you trust no one. You know how it is when you elect travel by charter and your air route and seat selection are completely out of your hands. In order to go from point A to point B the tour company will toss all kinds of travel gobbledegook at you to justify the shortest line between two points as the crow flies (a drunken crow, it seems) and take you to A-1, A-2. and A-3 before arriving at B, and often flying you to the ...

The GCA decided last year to do an island-wide, annual free picnic for all the residents of Goodland with the purpose of friendship and bringing people together to meet. “It really is a ‘for Goodland by Goodland’ event,” said GCA president Greg Bello.
