The Town Has Spoken

Congratulations Tracey Gore and Dennis Boback. They ran a great campaign and will bring some sanity back to government. I worked the polls at the Catholic Church. Tracey was there with me. She asked one of the poll workers where was Jack Green. The lady said he was not coming out. Tracey called Jack on the phone and he came down. When he arrived,, Tracey gave him a big hug and said he was my son's baseball coach. I was not surprised at her doing this, its how she is. We talked to all the other poll workers and we all got along. The only bad publicity was the ad run by the residents for development that trashed Tracey in their ad. The don't know Tracey. She is a great person that wants the best for our town. We might need to thank them for putting her over the top. It was great to hear the voters were 98% turn out.

Think a roundabout will help solve the traffic problem at Times Square? Don't wait years for an answer, find out,now, and here’s how:
ALL northbound traffic turn right on Crescent St. to exit the island at Fifth St.
One way traffic on Crescent St from San Carlos Blvd to Fifth St.
One way traffic on Fifth St from Crescent St to San Carlos Blvd.
One way Traffic on San Carlos Blvd from Fifth St to Crescent St,
And BINGO, you've got a modified (ain’t too round) roundabout for evaluation.
Northbound traffic to points north on Estero Island? Use First and Second Streets, plus Third St if the one way direction is rescinded.
Will this will speed up northbound traffic exiting the island? Absolutely!
Will it ease the traffic coming on the island? Probably not! Two lanes merging to one at Buttonwood Dr will cause the bottleneck to be around forever, but once over the bridge it might help.
Why not try it for a month or three? If it works, great! If it proves ineffective, go back to square one, no harm—no foul

Thanks from The Fish House Restaurant

On behalf of everyone at The Fish House Restaurant we would like extend our appreciation to William Genevrino, Lloyd Adams, Don Stilwell, Kara Stewart, Dawn Lenhert, Michelle Myher, Matt Noble and the rest of the town staff who were instrumental in the opening of our new restaurant. Many of you went above and beyond to help us secure the licenses and permits needed to get our doors open. Without your help our restaurant would not be enjoying its early success in our new location.

It is wonderful to be a part of such a caring community. We sincerely hope that you will stop in so that you may see the fruits of your labor firsthand.

Six months ago The Sun Bay Paper reported that despite a seeming acceptance for Angela Merkel’s pro-immigration policies, political pressure was beginning to mount in opposition to so-called asylum seekers and/or refugees. Now that pressure has resulted in definitive change as the Alternative for Germany (AfD) took three state assemblies with voter support that most European media called “unthinkable when this newspaper first started covering the European migrant crisis.
