COASTAL COMMENTS

Recently I found some fascinating information in Ohio Amish Country that I’d like to pass along to people who want to bring new development and restaurants to our area.

The lights on the Jolley Bridge and the poles on Davis Blvd. were damaged by Hurricane Irma. Repairs to lighting like those are […]

EDITORIAL & OPINION | Summer Hiatus

COASTAL COMMENTS

It’s been mentioned recently in a few ways that the commissioners are off for six weeks in the summer months. Many people are not aware of how that started in the first place, so let me bring you up to date.

How quickly a year goes by! When I was young, it seemed to drag on and on. Now it slips by so quickly you can hardly grab onto each day and enjoy it. The first half of the year is almost finished. Heck, I might as well just take out my Christmas ornaments and start decorating! By the time I […]

A Need in Our Own Backyard

COASTAL COMMENTS

It’s such a kind gesture for so many to donate heavily to the children in Immokalee, but one of the problems we have is that very few ever donate to the children of East Naples, and there are so many more children in this area, and many parents are farm workers who work at 6 L’s Farms right here in […]
