Island News of the Week:

 

Memorial Day (click link for a refresher) "to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service" - can be a sad time for some of us; it can also be a time to reflect, honor ...and to celebrate those that have sacrificed so much for this wonderful country that we live in.  Please consider proudly flying your flags, giving thanks and taking a moment to pay a simple act of kindness forward this weekend (here on the island, the city or wherever this email finds you).  Be safe, have fun and enjoy this little slice of paradise that many of us are blessed to call "home".  
Here are some:

Question(s) of the Week (please email us "your" input): 

Ocean Mall Area - it appears that New York Bagel has left the mall this week, Fines Dining has relocated to Juno Beach, and Pop's Ice Cream has left...    

- What can be done to help move the mall in a better direction (fully leased, clean, safe ...and possibly become the heart of our island community)? 

- What stores would "you" like to see (and would you frequent) at our mall? 

- Other thoughts/ideas/tips?


PLEASE send your input by way of email and we will share this with the city, the CRA and with our Island in next week's news...Let's each do whatever we can to help get OUR Ocean Mall back on track ...and Together We Will Make a Positive Difference!

 

CommUNITY Feedback from the May 16th eNews:  

How safe do you feel on the Island?  What do you think (we) can or should do better or differently around here?

 

From Freddyg @ the TIARA: When will the island receive the promised Police Sub Station?

  - great question (?) - we are working on an update from our city ..and will share any news as soon as we get it!


From Paul W - Singer Island USA:
I would like to suggest that the ocean condition flags flown at the town beach life guard station be made larger and flown from a high mast at the station. This would benefit and alert other beach goers on either side of the town beach. Also, the beach machines owned by many concessions or hotels run on the beach. Also seen on the road by the stores. Should not these vehicles be registered and insured in the event that they collide with another vehicle, or worse hit a adult or child?? 
- Thank you Paul, we will pass this along and follow-up.  The Ocean can be treacherous around here. Ocean Rescue does a great job but we've got a lot of unguarded areas, these are all good points for residents to consider.
