Island Mailbag

A CORRECTION TO THE WASTE MANAGEMENT ARTICLE

Meryl:

Thank you for the informative newsletter. I would like to point out one item in the Island News that is incorrect under the Waste Management.  Our Condominium Association, Island House on North Gulf had a landscape clean up party one Saturday last November.  I believed we could have a bulk landscape pick up so I called to schedule it.  I was informed that this does not apply to Don Pedro Island because they will not bring a "claw truck" to the Island and pay the barge fee to remove the bulk debris.  Our Association hauled 7 pick up trucks full of landscape debris to the Charlotte County landfill.  I would hate to see someone pile debris in front of their house and then find out it cannot be picked up.

Thank you so much for "introducing" the ISLANDS BETTER NATURE website to me. The photography is beautiful as well as educational.

The Pig in the Palms party was wonderful. The feast, with all the side dishes and Birthday Cake (yum), was on par with meeting new friends and catching up with old ones. Thanks to the organizers and whoever was in charge of weather - beautiful.

The thefts and vandalism are discouraging. We all moved to the island to let our guards down and not get too concerned with the guff the non-islanders cope with day to day.  The holidays bring the crowds. Apparently some folks need more activities.  It's a good reminder to keep a keen eye to protect one another.

Thanks to all the PIE members who participated in this years tree project. The two year project has planted 84 Yellow Tab trees around the island that in years to come will put on a show for all of us to enjoy. The trees were purchased with PIE funds at wholesale prices.
Thanks to all who helped including Dean Beckstead and Palm Island Transit.
Happy growing to all our baby Golden Tabebuias.
