Page 1 The Sun Bay Paper Lovers Key: a hidden gem nestled away yet bursting with nature’s unspoiled beauty. On an early morning, armed with Pub Subs and high spirits, we sought the gentle giants of the sea - the manatees. February’s chill does little to dampen the adventure. The canals, a sanctuary for these serene creatures in the Florida winter, reveal a small family under a footbridge—a moment of pure connection with nature. A whisper in the water binds mother and calf, a melody of the deep. The Visitor’s Center, a beacon of knowledge, stands proud, its foundation rooted in the dedication of the Friends of Lovers Key (FOLK). Volunteer docents guide visitors to view natural wonders with high-powered telescopes. They aim to deepen the visitor experience, revealing the full spectrum of the park’s treasures. From touch tanks to interactive displays, the facility enriches the understanding of Lovers Key’s delicate ecosystems. The exhibits, a blend of science and art, illuminate the park’s rich history and biodiversity. The beach, more than a place for leisure, is a complex habitat, home to a myriad of life forms. The story of the park, told through exhibits, connects visitors to the land and its legacy. A monument to education and exploration, the exhibit hall is a journey through the park’s diverse ecosystems, inviting curiosity and awe. The Community Room, equipped with state-of-the-art technology, off ers a space for learning, celebration, and nature observation. A nature walk beckons, a promise of exploration and discovery. Though kayaking waits for warmer days, the anticipation builds for summer adventures. Now, the manatees take center stage. These gentle giants, symbols of the park’s unique wildlife, captivate hearts. Observing them, whether by kayak, paddleboard, or from the shoreline, off ers a rare glimpse into their world. Their diet is crucial for the ecosystem’s balance, and their playful behavior enchants all who witness it. What began over 60 years ago as a “Blessing of the Fleet”, has grown to a major beachfront, weeklong celebration of shrimp. The Fort Myers Beach LIONS Club is working hard to support our local community of those in need and is excited to announce the offi cial Shrimp Festival ‘Shrimp Crawl’ taking place March 4th – March 10th, 2024 on Fort Myers Beach. Because the Shrimp Festival is being held in a new location, the Lions have limited vendor spaces and are unable to have their traditional shrimp boil. Nor will there be any food vendors in the vendor area this year....... So, they have partnered up with 16 local restaurants and bars to provide fans with a Shrimp Crawl with all the local #PinkGold shrimp they can get their hands on. To pick up an offi cial copy of the Shrimp Crawl passport, you can go to the Beach Chamber, Tuna Skin or Erickson & Jensen Seafood and then head out to participating restaurants for a variety of local #PinkGold shrimp dishes & drinks to help support our community & local economy. This is fresh #PinkGold shrimp gathered up right here in the Gulf of Mexico. Special Counsel Robert Hur’s investigation into President Joe Biden’s handling of classifi ed documents concluded without recommending criminal charges. Analysts, commentators, and political operatives speculate about the political repercussions for the octogenarian leader of the free world. Some claim the Hur Report report may be the basis for a 25th Amendment claim. In a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, Republican Rep. Claudia Tenney calls for the Cabinet to “explore” the use of the Constitution’s removal provision. Hur described Biden as a “sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.” Hur, throughout the more than 300-page report, said “it would be diffi cult to convince a jury that February 23, 2024 Volume 9 Issue 11 From Island to Bay, News on the Level production@sunbaypaper.com www.sunbaypaper.com Right...

February 23, 2024 The Sun Bay Paper Page 2 Dear Readers, I have been writing the same things the Prime Minister is telling us, and I want you to be aware we are not alone against Islam! IF THE FOLLOWING SPEECH SOUNDS FAMILIAR ...YOU ARE CORRECT. IT IS WHAT’S HAPPENING BEFORE YOUR EYES IN THE U.S. Edited by staff to fi t format. Send this to all your friends, relatives, and elected offi cials. Ask the offi cials what they are doing to stop Islam! The newly elected and contested Prime Minister of Holland is Geert Wilders. The perspective he presents should not be ignored. Please take the time to read and understand what is written here. J Gary DiLaura ............................................. Dear friends, Thank you very much for inviting me. I come to America with a mission. All is not well in the old world. There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very diffi cult to be optimistic. We might be in the fi nal stages of the Islamization of Europe. This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of Europe itself, it is a threat to America and the sheer survival of the West. The United States as the last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic Europe. First, I will describe the situation on the ground in Europe . Then, I will say a few things about Islam To close I will tell you about a meeting in Jerusalem . The Europe you know is changing. You have probably seen the landmarks. But in all of these cities, sometimes a few blocks away from your tourist destination, there is another world. It is the world of the parallel society created by Muslim mass-migration. All throughout Europe a new reality is rising: entire Muslim neighborhoods where very few indigenous people reside or are even seen. And if they are, they might regret it. This goes for the police as well. It’s the world of head scarves, where women walk around in fi gureless tents, with baby strollers and a group of children. Their husbands, or slaveholders if you prefer, walk three steps ahead. With mosques on many street corners. The shops have signs you and I cannot read. You will be hard-pressed to fi nd any economic activity. These are Muslim ghettos controlled by religious fanatics. These are Muslim neighborhoods, and they are mushrooming in every city across Europe . These are the building-blocks for territorial control of increasingly larger portions of Europe , street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood, city by city. There are now thousands of mosques throughout Europe . With larger congregations than there are in churches. And in every European city there are plans to build super-mosques that will dwarf every church in the region. Clearly, the signal is: we rule. Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take Amsterdam , Marseille and Malmo in Sweden . In many cities the majority of the under-18 population is Muslim. Paris is now surrounded by a ring of Muslim neighborhoods. Mohammed is the most popular name among boys in many cities. In some elementary schools in Amsterdam the farm can no longer be mentioned, because that would also mean mentioning the pig, and that would be an insult to Muslims. Many state schools in Belgium and Denmark only serve halal food to all pupils. In once-tolerant Amsterdam gays are beaten up almost exclusively by Muslims. Non-Muslim women routinely hear ‘whore, whore’. Satellite dishes are not pointed to local TV stations, but to stations in the country of origin. In France school teachers are advised to avoid authors deemed off ensive to Muslims, including Voltaire and Diderot; the same is increasingly true of Darwin The history of the Holocaust can no longer be taught because of Muslim sensitivity. In England sharia courts are now offi cially part of the British legal system. Many neighborhoods in France are no-go areas for women without head scarves. Last week a man almost died after being beaten up by Muslims in Brussels , because he was drinking during the Ramadan. Jews are fl eeing France in record numbers, on the run for the worst wave of anti-Semitism since World War II. French is now commonly spoken on the streets of Tel Aviv and Netanya , Israel . I could go on forever with stories like this. Stories about Islamization. A total of fi fty-four million Muslims now live. San Diego University recently calculated that a staggering 25 percent of the population in Europe will be Muslim just 12 years from now. Bernhard Lewis has predicted a Muslim majority by the end of this centur….

Page 3 February 23, 2024 The Sun Bay Paper The local boats can be seen while walking to Fort Myers Beach on Matanzas Bridge, just glance to the left and you will see the fl eet that supplies it. Please remember on Saturday March 9th, the Matanzas Bridge will be closed at 9am till about noonish...Traffi c will back up by 7:30 and a three mile stretch can take an hour.... So, if you are coming to the beach via San Carlos Blvd, give yourself a lot of time, if you don’t get over the bridge by 9, then you’ll have to park your car and walk over. The Shrimp Crawl will be going on all week and the festival weekend kicks off March 9 with a 5K run from 9 to 10 am, followed by a two-mile-long parade at 10 a.m. The parade features fl oats and bands and the Southwest Florida Corvette Club chauff euring our Shrimp Princesses in the parade.... It starts behind the library, on School Street and proceeds north on Estero Boulevard to Bayside Park and in my opinion, it’s one of the best parades the beach puts on. I had a chance to chat with Pageant Chairperson, Tracey Gore, she told me “the pageant is March 9th at 1pm at Bayside Park where our 2024 Shrimp Festival Queen will be crowned! Vicki Little, retired from Lee County Parks & Rec, is handling most of the judging for us this year. Former Vice Mayor Summer Stockton, and her wife, our local favorite singer/songwriter Sheena Brooke, put together a group of women to also help with some of the judging. Pink Shell Resort has been a great supporter of our pageant donating items for our Princess Swag Bags and off ering us anything we need. My Semmer family who owns Bonita Bill’s Waterfront Cafe has donated their event room and food for the orientation and Sunday Social for the Princesses, their sponsors and the Lions.” Remember to vote for your “Peoples Choice” Princess: fortmyersbeachshrimpfestival. com/vote-for-peoples-choice/ The Shrimp Festival arts and crafts fair will be at a new location along Old San Carlos Blvd. and between 1st Street & 3rd Street. For more vendor or other information contact Lion Diane Clifton: secretary@fmblions.com The Fort Myers Beach Lions Club has announced the return of their most “fulfi lling” addition to their world-famous annual event, the Annual Shrimp Festival Shrimp Eating Championship which will be Sunday at noon. The contest will feature up to 10 sponsored contestants who will compete to eat as many pounds as possible of cooked and peeled Ft. Myers Beach Pink Gold Shrimp within 8 minutes. They are still actively seeking participants. If you would like to participate as a contestant, contact Lion Shelby: shelby@hillgate.biz For more info visit the: fortmyersbeachshrimpfestival.com The Blessing of the Fleet with be Sunday March 10th at the shrimp docks and goes from 10am til 1pm. St. Raphael’s Episcopal Church will be holding a traditional service and a Blessing of the shrimp fl eet for a safe and bountiful year. We will have local Wild Caught Florida Pink Shrimp peel & eat after the service for $10 which benefi ts to FMB Lions. During the week leading up to the festival, locals attend the Shrimp Festival Run for Kids. This is a one mile run on the beach sand and will be run on Saturday March 2nd at 8 am and of course the weeklong Shrimp Crawl. The race will begin and end at the beach access on Gulf Beach Road across from the old Topps Supermarket and ends at Connecticut Street beach access. Starting at 8am, each grade will be released separately. It’s a free event. Each participant will receive a T-shirt and awards will be given to the top 3 fi nishers for each gender per grades K-5. This is also a great opportunity to meet Shrimp festival princesses as they will attend to support the kids and represent the Fort Myers Beach Lions Club. Contact the event Chair, Betty Rodriguez: bettyr@leeschools.net During the parade, the only bridge open to Estero Island is from Bonita Springs, about 16 miles south and it will back up too. Saturday after 1ish pm and on Sunday, San Carlos Boulevard should be clear, history shows that traffi c is always slow during this festival. Parking at the beach is always a challenge in season, with pay lots charging $20 on major events, and once you park you don’t use the car anyway. One way to avoid the problem is to park at the Summerlin Square at the corner of Summerlin Square Drive and Pine Ridge Road and ride the Lee Tran trolley over the bridge to the beach. Get off at the fi rst stop. If you come to the Shrimp Festival from the south, you can park at either Lovers Key State Park, which is well worth visiting in itself, or at the Santini Plaza, in the 7200 block of Estero Boulevard, and take the trolley to the festival.

That Gary guy is a little tough to take sometimes but it’s obvious where his heart is,, and reading about his FBI history, I at least, understand and tolerate his insistant position. Juan Caldeira Fort Myers Beach’s iconic pier is at the heart of a burgeoning controversy. The pier, a cornerstone of Lee County’s tourist allure and a signifi cant revenue generator, now languishes in uncertainty, its future mired in bureaucratic inertia. This isn’t just a story of a structure in disrepair; it’s a narrative of missed opportunities, veiled intentions, and a community’s call for accountability. The once vibrant Fort Myers Beach pier, decimated by Hurricane Ian, now stands as a somber reminder of nature’s fury. Tourists and local birds are left to ponder its fate as county offi cials navigate a labyrinth of funding pleas and strategic planning—or the apparent lack thereof. The crux of the matter? A glaring lack of foresight by those at the helm of Lee County’s decision-making process. Enter the advocates, the grassroots group Let’s Go FMB, and Town Council member Karen Woodson, presented a robust vision to Lee County earlier this month. They are champions for a pier that matches the grandeur and potential of Fort Myers Beach. Their vision is clear: a world-class pier that doubles as a beacon for tourists and a testament to the community’s resilience. Yet, despite their eff orts and the undeniable economic rationale, their calls for a more signifi cant, more ambitious rebuild seem to fall on deaf ears. As spun by some county offi cials, the narrative paints a diff erent picture—one where fi nancial constraints and regulatory hurdles conveniently excuse a tepid response to a clear community aspiration. Accusations of being “late to the table” are hurled at Let’s Go FMB, a baseless claim that only serves to defl ect from the offi cials’ procrastination and lack of engagement with the very stakeholders they serve. Lee County’s approach to the pier’s reconstruction—entrusting the design to Stantec without committing to the envisioned grandeur—signals a troubling reluctance. The potential for a pier that exceeds its former glory and sets a new standard for coastal landmarks is within grasp if only there were the will to reach it. The fi nancial aspect, often cited as a barrier, is met with skepticism. Fort Myers Beach has consistently fi lled the county’s coff ers through a bed tax, contributing signifi cantly more than it has received in return for beach projects. The imbalance in this fi scal relationship raises questions about priorities and fairness, particularly in light of the county’s Tourist Development Counsel’s substantial reserves. The community’s voice remains a critical component, though it hasn’t been as loud as some might expect. The absence of a unifi ed outcry for a forward-looking pier does not diminish the argument’s validity; instead, it highlights a potential underestimation of community sentiment and a missed opportunity for genuine engagement. The clock ticks and the pier’s fate hangs in the balance. The call to action is clear: Lee County offi cials must transcend their current Post-Ian roles as “professional beggars and blamers.” There’s no golden goose in Tallahassee or FEMA offi cials gumming up the works. They are the only ones holding the bag. Offi cials must embrace a vision that mirrors the ambition and spirit of Fort Myers Beach and secures the future of Lee County tourism and revenues. It’s a call for a new leadership style for those who see beyond the constraints of the present and towards the possibilities of the future in this next phase of the Ian Rebuild. Kudos to Woodson and Let’s Go FMB for their unwavering commitment, but the road ahead is fraught with challenges. Without a concerted eff ort from all stakeholders to demand accountability and visionary leadership from county offi cials, the pier—and, by extension, Fort Myers Beach—risks being shortchanged in a political game of expedience over excellence. The message is unequivocal: the time for action is now. Fort Myers Beach deserves a pier that refl ects its status as a premier tourist destination and a vital source of revenue. Anything less is a disservice to the community and a missed opportunity for Lee County to cement its reputation as a forward-thinking, responsive government. The ball is in the county’s court; will they rise to the occasion, or will the pier’s potential be washed away with the tide? Richard Luthmann Editor in chief

Page 5 The Sun Bay Paper February 23, 2024 Joe Obiden couldn’t wait to OPEN THE FREAKING BORDERS and made that his FIRST Executive Order. Now that same SOB blames Trump for the open borders?! He also refused to allow the contractors to fi nish the last few sections of fence that were bought with your money and paid for with your millions and sold for pennies on the dollar...and probably found a way to cut himself in on a piece, my opinion. How could anybody “in their right mind” open all the doors in his house and then blame Trump for the results? I guess the “in his right mind” answers that! It’s time for the 25th Amendment, screw the Impeachment...remove him by using the 25th. Then, after we remove him...lock his ass up! No sane President would do what this moron has done. He is crazy for following Hussein’s directives, my opinion! Now before those who are Democrats get their panties in a bunch...I better explain the diff erence between Democrats and Democraps. First, elected Democrats all took their oaths to “Protect, Preserve and Defend the Constitution”, with their hand on the Holy Bible because we are a Christian Nation. They believe in our Constitutional Republic, our Due Process, our Rule of Law, and our “unalienable Rights to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness” that our Bill of Rights and Constitution guarantee but most important...THE SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE! Democraps do not and the Radical Left or should I say, radical Islam, cannot believe in our Constitution...read the Koran! Some of the most despicable acts Muslims do are perfectly legal in Islam. We call them crimes ...some capital crimes. For example, honor killings are called murders in our book but OK in the Koran, Sharia Law! Killing a woman with a shot to the head is ok ...if she appears in public with her head uncovered, Sharia Law! I witnessed that, myself, on the news from Iraq. The Koran refers to Jews as Pigs and Pagans and they should be killed at every opportunity. Read an English translation. I am referencing the “The Holy Quran”, by Abdullah Yusuf Ali, published 2003. And if only Congress would read the Koran, they would learn what I have learned...and it’s not good. They are NOT honorable people by any standards, never have been and never will be. Their end justifi es their means, FACT...they will not stop killing until either they are wiped out or Rule the World. Most important, they do NOT BELIEVE IN THE SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE! Look at what Hamas (Islam), an arm of Iran, just did to Jewish babies, women, and others on October 7, 2023! How many times do YOU have to hear and see stories like that before you wise up? Listen to those morons who call themselves “The Crew”. They are members of Congress, and they blamed the Jews for wanting their own country to live in peace...how dare they! Omar, running off at the mouth about how she represents, as a freaking Congresswoman, the Somalis here, and they come fi rst. They (Somalis) have their own laws and the USA has no business telling her Somalis what to do...they rule themselves!? Did she not read either her oath to become a US Citizen or the oath to Protect, Preserve and Defend the US, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights....and NOT Somalia?! As a US Citizen and a Retired FBI Agent, I demand that Omar be stripped of her citizenship to the US, stripped of her Congressional seat, and be deported back to her beloved Somalia. She cannot retract what she said. She has demonstrated time and time again where her loyalty lies, and that’s NOT to the United States of America. She has proven herself to be antisemitic in her hate speech towards Jews many times and it’s time to rid the US of her poison! There is NO misunderstanding of what she said. She lied when she took her oath to the United States on her Koran. She lied when she took the oath to become a US citizen ... “I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fi delity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America”. That’s the oath she took. Is she living up to her oath? You be the Judge!!! The PLO, Iran, Palestine...none of those Muslims, whose book of faith is the Koran, should be allowed into the USA, let alone become members of Congress ...then... DEMAND we follow their orders (Sharia Law) on how to deal with their people! She is giving us a taste of how life would be as a Muslim! Do you mean US Citizens? That’s exactly what that idiot Omar just said a day ago! Shura 9, in the book I referenced, is rampant about killing disbelievers, “smite their neck, hands and feet” ... “kill the pagans”. Smite means cut off ...and that means you and me! So, get this and don’t forget it...Muslims want to rule the world by converting it to Islam. They are doing it, and they don’t care who they kill to get there! Hussein Obama is a Muslim...born and raised Muslim and still is! Keep that in mind! The Right Side WHYARE THE DEMOCRAPS INTENTIONALLYWEAKENING OUR COUNTRY...IGNORANT? Could it be ...Hussein wants to be Ayatollah of Islamic America?

February 23, 2024 The Sun Bay Paper Page 6 The Right Side Cont. from pg 5 they should convict him” of a serious felony “that requires a mental state of willfulness” and said he would be “well into his eighties.” Former Trump Administration aide Stephen Miller claimed the DOJ said Biden is less mentally fi t than the average inmate at San Quentin. However, the report’s lack of attention to key fi gures, events, and national security concerns, particularly Kathy A. Chung’s involvement and the historical ChinaGate scandal, has led to critical scrutiny. Special Counsel Hur’s investigation detailed Biden’s retention and disclosure of classifi ed materials post-vice presidency but omitted Chung’s critical involvement. Chung, whom federal prosecutors and congressional investigators interviewed, was involved in a previous scandal at the Commerce Department during the Clinton administration. She was part of a team sanctioned for withholding and destroying critical documents in a federal case related to the so-called Chinagate fundraising investigation. This controversy centered on Chinese eff orts to infl uence U.S. politics, raising concerns about national security vulnerabilities. Despite her controversial past, Chung was entrusted with Biden’s sensitive documents, highlighting a blurred line between public service and business interests within the Biden family. The Hur Report fails to address her directive from Biden to move susceptible papers to various unsecured private offi ces in D.C., including the Chinatown neighborhood, and even to his home in Wilmington, Delaware. While Donald Trump faces federal prosecution for removing classifi ed documents from the White House and storing them at Mar-a-Lago, his private residence, GOP congressional investigators say comparisons between Trump and Biden miss the point. They insisted that Biden’s document scandal is potentially more serious than mishandling state secrets. They suspect it could mushroom into a counterespionage case involving China and national security. Moreover, credible sources suggest Chung is under FBI investigation as a suspected agent of the Chinese government, a development that could have profound implications for U.S. security and foreign policy. Yet, this detail was conspicuously absent from Hur’s fi ndings, raising concerns about the investigation’s completeness and potential oversight of critical security risks. The relevant period of mishandling further coincides with 14 months when the Chinese wired almost $6 million in payments to Hunter Biden and his uncle Jimmy Biden, without any known legitimate services, fl agged by the U.S. Treasury Department as part of a potential Chinese intelligence-gathering operation. The omission by the Special Counsel’s report of Chung’s dual role—as an aide to Joe Biden and a friend of Hunter Biden—raises questions about the investigation’s integrity. Hunter Biden’s dealings with Chung and other fi gures connected to Chinese intelligence suggest a pattern of behavior that could have profound national security implications. The FBI’s investigation into Chung as a suspected agent of the Chinese government, if true, adds a layer of concern regarding the potential compromise of U.S. interests. The Special Counsel’s report’s failure to address these critical issues calls for a reassessment of its fi ndings. The complexities of safeguarding classifi ed information, especially in the face of potential foreign espionage, require a more detailed and comprehensive approach. Richard Luthmann They cannot believe in the separation of America’s Church and State. Islam, Church and State, are one and one Leader, Ayatollah (Hussein), that’s what we are fi ghting folks...Islam...NOTHING ELSE! So those Muslims who took their Oaths to be members of Congress did NOT take an Oath to the U.S.! The speaker should tell them they either take their Oath on the Bible and swear to honor our Constitution, “absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fi delity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen;” ...which requires a SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE or resign! That is EXCEPT for Omar, enough is enough ...she must go! See how that goes because they must denounce Islam to be true to what they say and here’s the hard part, denouncing Islam is punishable by death!! Oh...the Koran allows lying, deceit, anything that furthers the teachings of Islam! You know ...the end justifi es the means. Now back to Obiden... I’ll say it again...if Donald Trump, as President, did what Obiden does regularly...commit Treason...he would have been executed years ago. What’s Treason? “Aiding and abetting the enemy”. Want an example? Here’s a classic. President Joe Biden alerted Iran of the most recent attacks before we launched the missiles, to give them time to move out of harm’s way. According to the State Department, IRAN PAID FOR AND ORGANIZED ALL THE TERRORIST ATTACKS IN THE WORLD. Now you should be able to understand what’s going on. We are in a coupe...led by none other than our President Obiden...who I believe is taking orders from Hussein. These two, in my opinion, are leading us into real problems...socialism...by forcing us into problems that will dissolve our currency, kill our electric power, and way of life. The presidential elections cannot come fast enough...we really need Trump now! Allow me to give those Secret Service Agents on Obama’s detail a heads up. Remember he’s NOT the president anymore. If they are cognizant of plans that are, or may be, Treason.... taking over the country...and they don’t take action or report it...that’s a felony. It’s called, “Misprision of a Felony”. If they are aware of Obama giving Obiden or his staff plans, ideas that are Treasonous in nature, commit two overt acts, like taking Joe to plan with Hussein, and do not take action... for that they are as guilty as if they committed that act and could face the same penalties... death!! Protecting those two is quite diff erent from allowing them to destroy America, when you could have stopped it!! OBAMA has no right to immunity from arrest, nor privacy for conversions with him.

Page 7 The Sun Bay Paper February 23, 2024 In a unanimous decision, the Fort Myers Beach Town Council has welcomed Scott Saff ord to fi ll a vacant position. Stepping into the spotlight after Bill Veach’s resignation over new fi nancial disclosure laws, Saff ord emerged as the chosen one from a list of fi ve eager candidates. He is ready to bring his business savvy and community spirit to the council. “I’m ready to hit the ground running,” Saff ord said. With a 4-0 vote casting no doubts about the council’s confi dence in him, Saff ord takes on the challenge left by Veach, who bowed out late last December. The crux of Veach’s departure lay in the reluctance to comply with Form 6, setting the stage for Saff ord’s entry. The new mandate requires public disclosure of personal fi nancial dealings. A seasoned player on the local scene, Saff ord isn’t stepping into unfamiliar territory. His eight-year tenure on various government committees has given him the insight and experience to serve eff ectively. “I’m a business owner and a property owner. I know what everyone is going through with the permitting process and the rebuild because I’m going through it too,” Saff ord said. Beyond the council chambers, Saff ord is a well-known fi gure on the beach, co-owning the Sea Gypsy Inn with his wife, Jacki Liszak, who herself leads the Fort Myers Beach Chamber of Commerce with distinction. As Saff ord steps into this interim role, he does so with gratitude towards the council for the opportunity to serve and a pledge to uphold the interests of Fort Myers Beach residents. His term, earmarked to end in November, promises a tenure focused on actionable governance rather than political maneuvering. His aspirations extend no further than serving out the current term. With no designs on a November reelection bid, Saff ord’s clear about his priorities after this new nine-month community commitment: savoring the beach life, doting on his grandchildren, and catching the occasional rugby match. “My daughter-in-law recently had an opportunity to appear on the Today Show, so we fl ew to Arizona to watch the grandkids for a few days. You can’t do that when you’re on the Town Council. The oldest is nine, so I have about four good years until she becomes a teen and starts to hate me. That’s where I want to spend my time,” Saff ord said. The backdrop to Safford’s appointment was a town council initially divided over the selection process. Yet, in the end, unity prevailed, showcasing the council’s ability to unite for the town’s greater good. With the elections looming in November, the seats held by Saff ord, Mayor Dan Allers, and Vice Mayor Jim Atterholt will be up for grabs, promising a season of political rejuvenation. Saff ord will be sworn in at the next Town Council meeting on February 20th. As a local business owner, community advocate, and now town council member, Saff ord embodies the blend of leadership and local commitment that promises to steer our beach town toward a speedy recovery and a brighter future.

The new spot is transforming, with Hart aiming to fl ing open its doors by April 1. It’s a family aff air, with Hart and his son, Quentin, co-owning the venture, promising to split their time to dish out a taste of Chicago to an additional Southwest Florida locale. Jimmie’s recipe for success is simple yet authentic. He focuses on a no-frills menu with only the best: fi ve sandwiches, including Italian beef, Italian sausage, breaded steak, Maxwell Polish, and a sausage and beef combo accompanied by three sides. “I think the sausage and beef combo with giardiniera is hard to replicate,” Jimmie Hart says. “It makes me feel like I’m in Chicago,” says Naples seasonal resident Steve Kilian, who frequents Portillo’s when he’s in the Windy City. Since its debut in November 2021, Jimmie’s has become a beacon for Chicago transplants and Bonita Beach foodies. The original location, at 8951 Bonita Beach Road SE, Suite 550, continues to lure in the crowds with limited hours. He proves that when delivering a slice of Chicago in the sun-soaked stretches of Southwest Florida, Jimmie Hart is the name to beat.

February 23, 2024 The Sun Bay Paper Page 8 In the realm of science fi ction, the concept of a cloak of invisibility has long captured the imagination of enthusiasts and scientists alike. The idea of rendering objects or individuals invisible has been a subject of fascination and curiosity. Recently, a team of Chinese scientists has made a groundbreaking discovery that brings us one step closer to turning this fantasy into reality. The Breakthrough: The research, led by a team from the Institute of Advanced Materials at Nanjing Tech University, revolves around the development of a novel material with remarkable properties that can manipulate light in unprecedented ways. This breakthrough has the potential to pave the way for the creation of advanced cloaking devices. The material, known as meta-fi lm, is composed of microscopic structures that interact with light in a manner that bends it around an object, rendering it virtually invisible to the naked eye. This eff ect, known as optical camoufl age, has been explored in various forms over the years, but the Chinese team’s meta-fi lm exhibits enhanced capabilities, making it a signifi cant leap forward in cloaking technology. How It Works: The cloak of invisibility, in this context, relies on the manipulation of light waves. When light encounters an object, it typically refl ects, refracts, or scatters in various directions, making the object visible. The meta-fi lm developed by the Chinese scientists is designed to alter the path of light around the object it covers. The microscopic structures on the meta-fi lm interact with incoming light waves, causing them to bend and fl ow around the object rather than interacting with it directly. This redirection of light eff ectively conceals the object from view, creating the illusion of invisibility. Applications and Implications: The potential applications of this technology are extensive and go beyond the realm of science fi ction. From military applications such as stealth technology to civilian uses like advanced surveillance and medical imaging, the cloak of invisibility could revolutionize various fi elds. In the military sector, for instance, a truly eff ective cloak of invisibility could provide unparalleled advantages in stealth operations, rendering aircraft, vehicles, and even soldiers nearly undetectable. In the realm of surveillance and security, the technology could be employed to develop advanced camoufl age for buildings or equipment. Ethical Considerations: As with any groundbreaking technological advancement, there are ethical considerations that must be taken into account. The potential misuse of invisibility technology raises concerns about privacy, security, and the potential for abuse in various sectors. Governments and regulatory bodies worldwide will need to carefully consider and establish guidelines for the responsible development and use of cloaking technology. Striking a balance between innovation and ethical considerations will be crucial as this technology progresses. Conclusion: The Chinese scientists’ discovery of a meta-fi lm with advanced cloaking capabilities marks a signifi cant milestone in the pursuit of a real-life cloak of invisibility. While the technology is still in its early stages, the potential applications are vast and diverse. As researchers continue to refi ne and develop this groundbreaking technology, the world may soon witness the realization of a concept that has long been confi ned to the realms of science fi ction. Chinese Scientists Unveil Breakthrough in “Cloak of Invisibility Technology”

February 23, 2024 if there is a Muslim majority. We have cabinet members with passports from Morocco and Turkey . Muslim demands are supported by unlawful behavior, ranging from petty crimes and random violence, for example against ambulance workers and bus drivers, to smallscale riots. Paris has seen its uprising in the low-income suburbs, the banlieus. I call the perpetrators ‘settlers’. Because that is what they are. They do not come to integrate into our societies; they come to integrate our society into their Dar-al-Islam. Therefore, they are settlers. Much of this street violence I mentioned is directed exclusively against non-Muslims, forcing many native people to leave their neighborhoods, their cities, their countries. Moreover, Muslims are now a swing vote not to be ignored. The second thing you need to know is the importance of Mohammed the prophet. His behavior is an example to all Muslims and cannot be criticized. Now, if Mohammed had been a man of peace, let us say like Ghandi and Mother Theresa wrapped in one, there would be no problem. But Mohammed was a warlord, a mass murderer, a pedophile, and had several marriages - at the same time. Islamic tradition tells us how he fought in battles, how he had his enemies murdered and even had prisoners of war executed. Mohammed himself slaughtered the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza. If it is good for Islam, it is good. If it is bad for Islam, it is bad. Let no one fool you about Islam being a religion. Sure, it has a god, and a here-after, and 72 virgins. But in its essence Islam is a political ideology. It is a system that lays down detailed rules for society and the life of every person. Islam wants to dictate every aspect of life. Islam means ‘submission’. Islam is not compatible with freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is sharia. If you want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism or national-socialism, these are all totalitarian ideologies. Now you know why Winston Churchill called Islam ‘the most retrograde force in the world’, and why he compared Mein Kampf to the Quran. The public has wholeheartedly accepted the Palestinian narrative, and sees Israel as the aggressor. I have lived in this country and visited it dozens of times. I support Israel . First, because it is the Jewish homeland after two thousand years of exile up to and including Auschwitz; second because it is a democracy, and third because Israel is our fi rst line of defense… The war against Israel is not a war against Israel . It is a war against the West. It is jihad. Israel is simply receiving the blows that are meant for all of us. If there would have been no Israel , Islamic imperialism would have found other venues to release its energy and its desire for conquest. Thanks to Israeli parents who send their children to the army and lay awake at night, parents in Europe and America can sleep well and dream, unaware of the dangers looming. Many in Europe argue in favor of abandoning Israel in order to address the grievances of our Muslim minorities. But if Israel were, God forbid, to go down, it would not bring any solace to the West It would not mean our Muslim minorities would all of a sudden change their behavior, and accept our values. On the contrary, the end of Israel would give enormous encouragement to the forces of Islam. So-called journalists volunteer to label any and all critics of Islamization as a ‘right-wing extremists’ or ‘racists’. In my country, the Netherlands , 60 percent of the population now sees the mass immigration of Muslims as the number one policy mistake since World War II… And another 60 percent sees Islam as the biggest threat. Yet there is a greater danger than terrorist attacks, the scenario of America as the last man standing. The lights may go out in Europe faster than you can imagine. An Islamic Europe means a Europe without freedom and democracy, an economic wasteland, an intellectual nightmare, and a loss of military might for America - as its allies will turn into enemies, enemies with atomic bombs. With an Islamic Europe, it would be up to America alone to preserve the heritage of Rome , Athens and Jerusalem .. Dear friends, liberty is the most precious of gifts. My generation never had to fi ght for this freedom, it was off ered to us on a silver platter, by people who fought for it with their lives. and whose memory we cherish. My generation does not own this freedom; we are merely its custodians. We can only hand over this hard won liberty to Europe ‘s children in the same state in which it was off ered to us. We cannot strike a deal with mullahs and imams. Future generations would never forgive us. We cannot squander our liberties. We simply do not have the right to do so. We have to take the necessary action now to stop this Islamic stupidity from destroying the free world that we know.

February 23, 2024 The Sun Bay Paper Page 10 Environmental WE DEBUNKED GLOBALWARMING…JUST ASK AL GORE HOWACCURATE HIS PREDICTIONS WERE, BASED UPON THE UN IPCC MODEL ON GLOBALWARMING… (GLACIERS WILLMELT, MANHATTEN WILL BE UNDER WATER AND POLAR BEARS WILL BE GONE)…ALL BY 2015…? We debunked that Global Warming nonsense and the Dems dropped that foolish argument and adopted new talking points… “Climate Change”, which is what the IPCC was supposed to study in the fi rst place! That was a big mistake because we already know that humans cannot control let alone change, stop, impact in any way …the weather. We cannot make it rain nor stop it. The same with snow, temperature, wind, tornados or hurricanes in any way! Yet, just one Sunspot could… is capable of, causing catastrophic results…like change our orbit around the Sun! Want to see Climate Change…I hope and pray “that” Sun spot never happens!!!Worry about that, but don’t worry about Fossil Fuel electric power plants. I‘ll give you something MUCH worse than fossil fuel to worry about…electric Lithium battery driven anything, especially vehicles, of any type. The damage to Planet Earth to manufacture, build and dispose of used batteries, and deal with the Environmental Impacts, to build, store, dispose of, service, are astronomical, extremely dangerous, that woke folks, builders, politicians (who have invested heavily in China), to build these vehicles… will never admit to…the costs to produce say 1,000,000 electric vehicles not to just build. Try to fi nd any of these things on Google…ie how dangerous these batteries REALLY are, how do you dispose of a $30,000 … 4,000 pound used up battery? Let me know what you found. They cannot be landfi lled, they cannot be burned, they explode like C-4 Military explosive. One idiot I heard said to store the used batteries in your basement… folks please don’t do that…there will be nothing left of your house…nothing! Now, to demonstrate just how stupid these radical Democraps are …I’m going to debunk their entire ideology and talking point with one very simple question that you have never heard ANYONE ask (,except me) nor have you heard it answered nor defi ned or explained and that is …”DEFINE CLIMATE CHANGE”…THEN TELL US WHAT PART (ELEMENT) YOU CAN CONTROL… “EXACTLY” HOWYOU PLAN TO CONTROL THAT ELEMENT? I am going to take the liberty of backing that up with this question as well… “What, Scientist told you that you can Change or Control, Climate Change? And… this one as well…What Scientist, I mean REAL scientist not a New York Times , Self-Declared, “Scientifi c Journalist”… says that Fossil fuel, CO2 and or Green Gases are the culprits…that blew a hole in our atmosphere… names please …because I would like to see if they all got their College Degrees, on line, for 50 bucks! I submit that NO legit Scientist would dare say CO2 is evil…without Carbon Dioxide, we would NOT be here. Without fossil fuel, we could not in the past and cannot into the future, exist on planet Earth…fact! CO2 is responsible for the air your source breaths! See if he did go to College, see if he knows what F=MA or E = mc2. …stands for!! Just to further show that some things, do come around that go around… when Patrick Moore, the founder of Green Peace, quit Greenpeace…you heard of that didn’t you…he said quite a few things that directly contradict everything you anti-fossil fuelers say? Fact is many have quoted some of the nonsense Greenpeace put out about Carbon Dioxide and Green Gases! Patrick Moore, a Scientist himself, couldn’t take the lies and deceptions any longer…didn’t hear that from the MSM, did we? Well hear it now from yours truly…he did debunk most all that Greenpeace once claimed…and you know what, I want to thank Mr Moore for what he did…it took guts!! Get ready because it’s what many of us have suspected ALLALONG. From Mr Moore… 1. The “Greenpeace Ship”, traveled the seas to save the world from fossil fuel with her mighty sails and rammed into whalers to save the whales…they did it with the two, huge GM Electromotive DIESEL FUEL engines that powered the electric motors that powered the entire ship. He never saw those sails raised…Mr Moore’s words! 2. Our plant life needs CO2 to survive and produce the oxygen we breathe…so much so…that we need to INCREASE CO2 in the atmosphere because… “Our trees need at least 250 ppm of CO2 to survive, any less and our trees will die”…we now have 450 ppm… however our trees need 2,000ppm to thrive!!! 3. Science has no idea how this happens but every year the “excess CO2” in the atmosphere drops into the Oceans, there-by benefi ting Ocean plant life …then the fi sh…then you! 4. Here’s an eye opener…Mr. Moore said that CO2 is so important to you and me…if you ever have plants that are not doing well , “put them in a greenhouse, put your car exhaust into that green house and close the doors”…it will knock your socks off how they will turn around! That’s from Patrick Moore…makes sense too, CO2 works, doesn’t it! 5. From this writer; And you want to become fossil fuel free… “Morons…you cannot live on Planet Earth without CO2…I swear”! 6. I apologize…I said that,“You are MORONS”, it’s true…and I’m sorry for it! The only way you can replace fossil fuel energy, is to fi nd REAL replacements…not Fairy Tales. The only VIABLE replacement there currently is for fossil fuel…IS NUCLEAR POWER…which… New York State’s Governor Cuomo, the fi red one, OUTLAWED…another MORON! So here enters N Y Governor Kathy Hochul , who it seems she hasn’t heard we have a Constitution and Bill of Rights that call for life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Kathy, we depend on fossil fuel, not to just survive, but for Life ,Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness”! It’s unalienable…that means you can’t take it away…check on you Law Classes on THE CONSTITUTION…look it up…because we will not stand for anybody taking away what we need to…you know…live on! We will come after you …your folks better have deep pockets, as we will do a State Wide Class Action Suit. However this time we will come after every single elected offi cial who signs off on that bill/law. You people don’t get it…there’s a diff erence between Leading and Ruling. For municipalities, States and such, the municipality cannot pay for “punitive damages-fees”…it wouldn’t be “punishment” then would it! I wonder if every body on the Jury, and the Judge as well as everybody in the courtroom, uses “fossil fuel” ,you know National Fuel and electricity(that comes from fossil fuel) think about that before you commit “political suicide” Check it out in 1985…I was lead plaintiff on a NY Class action suit against PASNY… you know… the Power Authority. From some employees that I knew…it cost NY Power Authority, some 15+ Million just in legal fees and 15 years, I never quit, by the time I got fi nished with them, I stopped their expansion and forced them to recap the Love canal entrance from the clay cap they destroyed over the years of fl oods ,they caused!… guess who won…we the people! And the rest of you who are exactly WRONG about fossil fuels and the good of CO2… you are not a little wrong but totally and completely WRONG and you are being fooled by fools and are being made to look like fools!… So step back…and take a deep breath and ask yourself this question…”Do I want to live in a free Nation with a Constitutional Republic and Bill of Rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” or do you want to live a Hussein Obama, Ruled Islamic, Socialist Nation? There’s 300, 000,000+ people in America who use fossile fuels, my guess. Here’s some more food for thought; Scientists from the Heartland Institute put together a short, and to the point petition…this petition in its entirety is posted below. It was started in 1997 and continues to be signed! It is SIGNED BY 31,487 AMERICAN SCIENTISTS, INCLUDING 9,029 PhDs on Global Warming: _________________________________________________________ PETITION “We urge the United States Government to reject the global warming agreement that was written in Kyoto, Japan in December,1997, and any other similar proposals. The proposed limits on greenhouse gases would harm the environment, hinder the advance of science and technology, and damage the health and welfare of mankind. There is no convincing scientifi c evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate. Moreover, there is substantial scientifi c evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many benefi cial eff ects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.” __________________________________________________________ Want to know why Hussein Obama is trying to Bankrupt America? From WIKIPEDIA. Obama’s favorite College Professors…The Cloward– Piven strategy is a political strategy outlined in 1966 by American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. It is the strategy of forcing political change leading to societal collapse through orchestrated crises. The “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a fl ood of impossible demands, amassing massive unpayable national debt, and other methods such as unfettered immigration thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse by overwhelming the United States.
