(Naples Daily News, 3/26/2011)
Naples officials proposed to have U.S. 41 turn east at Golden Gate Parkway by Coastland Center mall, then turn south at Goodlette-Frank Road until it connects back up with present-day U.S. 41 East. That idea didn't please many U.S. 41 business owners.
(Naples Daily News, 1/24/2011)
I spent the afternoon/early evening covering a stabbing death in Southwest Florida involving two high school students at a bus stop. As the story grew, it gained national attention when the suspect, Jorge Saaverdra, successfully used the 'Stand Your Ground' law as a defense.
