from Jim and Nancy Mathews

We are residents on SE 3rd Ave, directly west of the main entrance to the Golf Club. We have only lived here for a couple of years; however, it looks as though we may soon be leaving if this sale is finalized. Dr. Browder indicated traffic problems will not occur due to the varied start times....is he kidding? It will only extend the problems for about 5 hours per day! As for the view......pack your camera and go visit the Cape Coral High School at dismissal time. While you are there, check out the dumpster which is in plain view of the highway. You can't miss it, it's right behind the chain link fence just north of the building. Nice area...I certainly would not choose to live near it! Buses and cars and kids hanging around after school leaving their litter everywhere really does not make a pleasant surrounding in which to live. And they want five buildings erected there.....in an area that has no room left for new growth? When the "signs" are ready for the lawns, do not forget us, we will gladly put one in our front yard. If we can help, let us know.

Jim is a retired Michigan teacher (35 yrs) and I was Exec. Secretary to the Superintendent and Board of Education in Riverview, Mich.
