Subject: Slush Fund
Comments: Now we know the name of Carmel Monti's slush Fund-Grassy Point! It probably also paid for the childlike drawings of his gondola proposal. When is Holmes Beach going to wake up? The City is creating more sign pollution with the additional crosswalk and stop signs. The residents are getting the old bait and switch trick. Disney is in Orlando. We don't need it here.

Subject: Healthy food can taste great?
Comments: I'd like to know who proof read this before letting it into our newspaper. This has to be the worst grammar I have seen since I was in middle school. Is this the result of our schools not teaching anything but the FCAT?

Subject: A Different Proposal Don Good
Comments: No need to write a review to Vacation
Magazine,your insolence is known "World
Wide".Maybe a nice march on your island
once a month would be appropriate.A
complaint to the ACLU would ruffle a
few feathers on the old Bald Eagle.
Your article is tipping on the edge
of an attack on the disadvantaged people that have the same Rights as you have in the United States Of America.By the way
your free to travel to our State and
we will welcome you with open arms.

Subject: fishing Line
Comments: Darlene , I wasn't talking about the beach. And I happen to like tourist very much so please don't play that card. I help lots of them get their lines untangled from our trees because I like to help them out. I also happen to have a view of many rentals docks that I personally see kids mostly but adults as well on vacation getting hooked in our mangrove trees that keeps me quite busy cleaning up after they leave.You want to know how many times? too many ! I'm not a tourist hater like you think. I'm a monofilament left in trees hater. I also clean up monofilament in other places all the time and get mad at locals for leaving a mess too. Everybody Please Fish Responsibly!!! Fishing Line takes up to 600 years to decompose. The only finger pointing I'm doing is at snagged fishing line. Look there's some more on that branch!

Subject: How bad is the traffic on the island?
Comments: Traffic to AMI from Cortez and traffic from Bradenton Beach to Cortez Road via the Cortez Bridge is dangerous. It is not the bridge, but the road design, limited lanes, and stoplight that need to be re-engineered for safe and efficient travel on and off the island.
