By Matt Smith Fire Commissioner Candidate
The community of Lehigh Acres has a wealth of intelligent and articulate people. It is time that we use this wealth of knowledge to solve the issue of the fire board insolvency. I propose reduced spending and consider all other options before we start to even talk about layoffs.
These firemen are not just the districts; they’re our firefighters also and deserve the respect of all of our community.
When it comes to public safety, they “watch our backs” when we are all asleep with our families, as a community we should return the favor. It might be too little, too late, but we should try to save their jobs anyway.
The bad news: I presented a proposal to the last board meeting, a proposal to sponsor a Citizens Committee to come up with solid recommendations to make the fire district solvent, and they disapproved any consideration.
About 2.2 million bean bag chairs are being recalled after two children opened them, crawled inside and suffocated to death.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Friday that the zippers on the chairs, which are made by Ace Bayou Corp., can open.
A 13-year-old boy from McKinney, Texas, and a 3-year-old girl from Lexington, Kentucky, were found dead inside the chairs after they suffocated from a lack of air and inhaled the chair’s foam beads.

People trying to push Florida’s Republican Party further to the right say the state organization is “scrambling” as it defends a pair of incumbent lawmakers from primary opposition.
The Republican Party of Florida, which declined to discuss its strategy, spent $40,357 the first week of August in four of the five Senate contests in which sitting members have drawn GOP opponents.
The majority of the money was used on internal polling and consulting for the campaigns of Sen. Thad Altman of Rockledge and Senate Majority Leader Lizbeth Benacquisto of Fort Myers. Altman is being challenged by Melbourne Beach resident Monique Miller in District 16 on the Space Coast, while Benacquisto is going up against Michael Dreikorn, president of the Bokeelia Civic Association, for the District 30 seat in Charlotte and Lee counties.
Miller and Dreikorn are pressing the two lawmakers on issues such as budget spending, undocumented-immigrant tuition and the Second Amendment, as well as hot local issues such as passenger rail service on the East Coast and water quality on both coasts.

A big problem is looming for the Lehigh Acres High Schools.
Student population is exploding and in just three years the district will be at its capacity.
By the end of this year, Lee County expects to reach 89,000 students.
The district says it needs two new high schools. One is needed in Lehigh Acres the other in Bonita Springs where the largest influx of students is being seen.
District leaders say there is just one big problem. They don’t have the money needed to build the new facilities.
