She’s an independent consultant who, for years now, has worked with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), Charlotte County, Lee County and others to help save our Florida shorebirds and sea turtles.

This Gal Has Had A Moving Career
Kristine Sedra was and is a travelin’ gal, to put it mildly. In her 24 years as a professional caregiver, she has, by her count, “worked in 37 emergency departments in 12 states.”

He’s ‘One In A Million’
Hank Irvine is pretty well known in this neck of the woods…and elsewhere, too. You can look him up on Wikipedia for evidence if you like. As a tennis player he ranked No. 1 in his country for a couple of years, played at Wimbledon three times and represented his countrymen in two Davis Cups.

He Could Be Called A ‘Guardian Angel’
At age 70 and retired, Greg Foust defines his life perhaps a bit more by what he’s doing now than what he did in a very successful career. And what he’s doing now is serving as a Guardian and volunteer in the Honor Flight Network...

From A Pauper To A President
If you like Horatio Alger stories, Englewood’s Robert J. (“Bob”) Turner is a classic for you. He was born in 1940, when the Great Depression was still ravishing the world’s economies, and Germany and Japan were devastating Europe and the Far East...

She faced tough odds and came out on top
“I had a good childhood,” says Nancy Weaver. Some would say it was idyllic: brought up in a pleasant neighborhood in Minneapolis. Dad a corporate exec with General Mills, Mom at home taking care of their four kids. A close family, three girls and a boy. Summers spent camping, swimming and bicycling...

Where ‘The Dogs Are In Charge’
If Allan and Pamela Schildknecht say something to you about dogs, you’d better listen, because they know from experience what they’re talking about. During the 40 years of their marriage they’ve shared their house with over 160 dogs–fortunately, not all at the same time...

The Travel Guy
You could say that Dick Dunham has been a world traveler since the day he was born. His dad, Lt. Colonel Richard Weston Dunham Sr., was a 29-year career officer in the U.S. Air Force, and he moved around a lot, toting his family with him...

There's A Maven In Our Haven
Though he probably hasn’t thought about it that way, Englewood’s Rich Entlich has been a problem solver pretty much all of his life... Math was his strong suit through grade school and high school, and everyone knows math is all about solving problems: word problems, numerical problems, equations, even “theories of everything” to explain our universe and how we got here...

She’s ‘where the magic happens'

SEPTEMBER 11: A time to forget? 
Everybody remembers where they were on September 11, 2001...  Englewood’s JoAnn Siciliano certainly remembers, because she was there. And for her, it’s a merciful day even now when she can repress her memories of that fateful event...

She’s ‘hearing the call, Englewood’
Noel Crosby had more than her share of problems growing up: a parental divorce “at a time when no one got divorced,” as she puts it, problems with a speech defect, low self-esteem, difficulty in school and a wrenching relocation from her Manchester, N.H. home...

The ‘King of Cans’
Juergen Kroos is already noticeable in his neighborhood. On his 140-ft. by 100-ft. residential lot in Englewood Isles, he grows over 40 different fruits and vegetables, and he gives many of them away to friends and neighbors. Want some oranges, passion fruit, papayas, lemons, limes, plums, strawberries, pineapple, persimmon or bananas? He’ll get you a few...

The man with the Midas touch
Although he’s now a wealthy man, Derek Pullen’s “West End” accent betrays his growing-up years in a tough urban neighborhood: Aldershot, England, a small city of about 35,000 people, 30 miles southwest of London, that is famed as “The Home of the British Army.”

Horatio Alger should have written his story...
Yes, America’s famed “rags to riches” novelist, who wrote a great many novels about young men of poor origins who made good by dint of hard work, could have written one of them about Englewood’s Larry Sargent. Really? Hear me out.
