some DESTRUCTION
to be
followed by CONSTRUCTION.

REGRETFULLY
some links will probably fail
that is a typical thing during
reconstruction by
old bears like me.

Tired of SPAM? Check out the Coalition Against Unsolicited Commercial Email (CAUCE), check the link on our Anti-SPAM page...

This site remains in a state of flux!  Above all else, this page is a gateway to five worlds, Amateur Radio, Southwest Florida Real Estate, Shooting, reducing Spam, and Varsity Lakes, a nice place to live.  In keeping with my dislike of SPAM, here is a quote for you from the Federal Trade Commission website:
If you would like to forward unsolicited commercial e-mail (spam) to the Commission, please send it directly to UCE@FTC.GOV without using this form.

This site includes pages devoted to Amateur (HAM) Radio, the Fort Myers Amateur Radio Club and A.L.E.R.T. (Lee County's Emergency Communications group), and helping Ham Radio grow. I have also added some information about the Shooting Sports.kc4goa in the hope that it will help both of these hobbies grow.

I am an active member of A.L.E.R.T., the "All Lee County Emergency Response Team," which uses licensed Ham Radio operators to assist with Lee County Civil Defense.  This is the one of the main reasons that Amateur Radio exists, to assist the public in times of emergency.  Helping at parades and other events is another calling for those of us who love the Ham Radio hobby.  Finally, talking around the world with other licensed amateurs serves two purposes: extending good will and practice for our real calling, emergency service.  Please help us by opposing antenna restrictions.

I am an Endowment member of the NRA and an NRA Certified Firearms Instructor for Rifle, Pistol, and Shotgun (modern and black powder). My primary concern is the safe handling and ownership of firearms. In addition to helping teach NRA courses I serve as a Merit Badge Counselor for the Boy Scouts.

Of interest to web site "junkies" and other visitors is our list of favorites with links to several sites filled with information and other stuff.  Please visit those sites and enjoy.  Contact me with the details if you want to have a link to your site placed on my page.

I dedicate this site to my wife, who lost her third battle with cancer in 2009. 

I have removed the family trees.  I am still in to ancestry research and would appreciate any information concerning the Nickel or Heermans families.
