From Robert D:

OUR lagoon is unbelievable.  It is the beginning for all kinds of fish.  I catch baby grouper that can eventually grow to 500 lbs. and more in the ocean.  THEY START HERE! Last week my wife and I were on the dock and a bull shark whose head had to be 2 feet wide and about 6 foot long passed right under us coming from the shallows of the lagoon and heading back to the inlet and the ocean. What better place to spawn. You cannot believe the assortment of fish that come and go. Since we are, SO CLOSE TO THE OCEAN, it would be criminal to disturb this natural breeding ground. There are times when the bait fish are so thick, the pelicans and seagulls go crazy ....

February 25th, Special Council Meeting:  Ocean Mall ... From Diane D. How about an update on the Ocean Mall? I tried to listen with interest to the special meeting but the sound quality was so poor that I couldn't make out any outcome or next steps.

What I gathered is that the eye soar will continue ... pathetic display of government and private not working together. An update by the SICA would be helpful.

 

SICA has requested an update and will share with residents once a response has been received. Thank you for your patience.
