To the Editor:
If you’ve been in Englewood on Labor Day weekend in the past 53 years then you’ve seen Englewood pay homage to their pioneers. Over these years many organizations, clubs and businesses have rolled up their sleeves and gone to work to give thousends of spectators many hours of enjoyment with their families and friends.
I wanted to update everyone on my dad’s condition. We found out yesterday that he has had a setback in his recovery. The infection in his legs has returned and he will be gettng a PICC line put in Thursday.
Boca Grande’s Tarpon Conservation Project wrapped up its satellite tagging effort on Saturday, Sept. 8. A total of 32 satellite tags have been placed on Charlotte Harbor tarpon over the past three years.
After seeing the local news coverage on the MEDSTAR suspension, I felt compelled to write this as this suspension directly affects your islands residences. As a taxpaying citizen of Lee County I am outraged by this suspension as I’m sure many of your residents are. The suspension of the MEDSTAR helicopter ambulance has been coming up frequently at my community's club house.
Lately, it has been rare that our small family is together. With three in Florida, and two of us in Pennsylvania, we do not get much quality time. In early June my twin sister, Brittany, and I came down for our younger sister, Pam’s, high school graduation. The family was finally all together. With only one free night in Boca Grande, Papa Lew decided to call Capt. David Chatham to take us on a tarpon charter.
Capt. Dave had his work cut out for him as we boarded the Jill Marie. Papa Lew was the only pas- senger who had fished for tarpon before. Pam and I were up first for our tarpon lesson. Our first mate, Paul Wagenseil, showed us both how to use the equipment and baited our lines.
