Cape’s seasonal real estate activity ticking a bit higher

Locally, we are seeing real estate activity tick a bit higher into mid-January, as the number of showing appointments with potential buyers has increased along with the Internet inquiries we are receiving from new out-of-town buyers interested in Cape Coral. In addition, we are getting calls ...

Nix food truck regs

Come hell and high water, the wheels of government still do to go round and round. That’s both good and not so good. Case in point: The city of Cape Coral will circle back next Wednesday with a proposal to eliminate “food-truck based outdoor restaurants.” The proposed ordinance would ...

‘The Sound of Music’ at Cultural Park a must-see

To the editor: Kudos to the cast and crew of The Sound of Music presented at Cultural Park Theater. This was probably the best production we have ever seen on this theater’s stage. The lead character of “Maria,” played by Christina Thurmond, was especially outstanding. We were also ...

Buy popcorn and have a seat

Enhanced Life Estate Deed will provide easy transfer of title

Mr. Feichthaler: My husband and I prepared a living trust many years ago. As part of the process and to avoid probate, we deeded the property to the trust. Last year, my husband passed away, which leaves me as the sole trustee of the trust. I would prefer to simplify things and remove the ...
