Another member of the "we got ours" club, so nobody else should come to the Cape and everything should be the same forever. Or, why can't we live here for FREE?

@1sandy... You are correct, not to mention what things once were will never be again. A fine example would be the bedroom community concept that died a decade ago.

OK,you got yours and think a certain point was magical and we should not progress. I'm guessing the Caloosahatche Indians might have a different view. Like when Cape Coral's roots were Mangrove roots.

1 sandy no things are going to change and since you got yours I guess that puts you in the club.

Oh and if these taxes stick only fools will rush into Cape Coral to invest in land, homes, or businesses.

John do I hear the ice cubes tinkling in that glass again?

John how is the custom home business going? I am starting to see your interest here!

I don't have a custom home business or any interests in any businesses lightswitch, wrong again. Although I think I know who your are, I'd like to see you come out from hiding behind your screen name and like a lot of us and have the courage to put a face and real name behind your words.

Mary, new roots have been growing here for two decades. You may not have a future but most of us do and the good old days are gone forever so get over it.

Mary, if you don't understand the notice, or never learned to read, get one of your RAG friends to explain it to you--like Dillie or McKiernan or Brand. The rest of the RAGS might be able to explain ---but not without fibbing and terrorizing you to get you to vote for their buddies. Better call your councilman and ask for a meeting so he/she can explain.

CLASS WARFARE!! All the RAG posters have a common theme: blame the 1,200 city workers (not all are IN a union---this is a Right-To-Work State). Are RAGs suggesting that those 1,200 workers should support the 165,000 city? The oath “To Protect and Serve” or term “Public Servant” does NOT mean a lower class or servitude. We no longer have a ‘Servant Class’ in this country, or indentured servants, and Lincoln freed the slaves. Having a boat-load of money does NOT entitle RAGs to threaten, belittle, menace, and condemn their fellow citizens! Now we have people claiming that THEY are the judge of how much and when our employees should be paid! Shame on YOU, RAGs!!!

CapeCoralCuestions, if as you state I have a boat load of money, please be so kind s to point me to it. It really would come in handy!

Furthermore, when did I ever say or write about employees and how much and when they should be paid. NEVER you simple minded nitwit!

Come on CapeCoralCuestions or as some have said Charlie, get some gonads and post under your real name.
