To the Editor:
As some of you may have read in last week's Boca Beacon, the island is experiencing an infestation of spiraling whitefly. This new South Florida insect pest, rugose spiraling whitefly (Aleurodicus rugioperculatus) is evident on almost all of the gumbo limbo and black olive trees along the GICIA Bike Path. It is also on some of the seagrape and many of the coconut palms.
To the Editor:
I would like to thank everyone for their participation in and support of the Boca Grande Area Chamber of Commerce 2012 Fall Golf Scramble held at the Gasparilla Golf Club.
(Sent via e-mail to Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott by an island resident):
This may be small in your eyes, but it was huge in mine. When my golf cart recently broke down in town, Lee County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Jeff Corkhill sent Deputy Angelo Lanni to assist me.
Tax the few to subsidize the many! In this case, the few are the resident taxpayers of Boca Grande, and the many are not the poor and needy.
(Regarding the article in the Boca Beacon on September 28 titled, “Battle still being waged by GIBA over disclosure law”)
Thank you for sending me your article on the GIBA financial disclosure issue. I wanted to take some time to provide you with some clarifying information, as the issue can get complicated and I’m sure you want to provide your readers with accurate information.
