The History of North Island

It is thought that North Island had its first inhabitants around the year 1000... the Sawani Indians settled the area... "Sawani" means "fierce people"... and they were described by historians and researchers as war-like people... the Sawani were resistant to colonization and savagely attacked any explorers who came into their territory... the Sawani were fishermen, they did not farm... they used shells on the island for utensils, jewelry, tools and weapons... by the 1800s most of the Sawani had died out... many were lost in warfare, some sold as slaves, while others died of diseases such as smallpox, measles and malaria.

According to local folklore, pirates supplanted the Sawani tribe... in the early 1800s the island was named Captiva by a pirate captain Jose Gasparillo... he was notorious for holding women prisoners for ransom... with Captiva as their headquarters, the buccaneers and privateers became gun runners and blockade runners and thrived until the end of the Civil War... in the 1870s, Captiva was abandoned and uninhabited... a malaria epidemic decimated the island and its people.

In 1888, an Austrian by the name of Axel Stordahl was on a German freighter headed for New Orleans... the ship wrecked off the coast of Louisiana in the Gulf of Mexico and he washed up on the shores of Captiva... history tells us that Stordahl "survived for several weeks on what the unoccupied island had to offer, built a makeshift raft and got himself to the mainland and New Orleans"... in 1890 Stordahl became a naturalized US citizen and was allowed to homestead on Captiva... he was its only inhabitant for 10 years... beginning in 1900 Stordahl began to develop the island and changed its name to North Island... he felt a name change would be a good public relations ploy... on the mainland Captiva was known as a deadly place for malaria.

Just a short ferry ride from New Orleans, Stordahl wanted North Island to be a special community with planned townships and restricted development... he set in place strictly-enforced building codes... the towns today still look pretty much like they did in Stordahl's time... North Island is highly restricted when it comes architecture... the housing codes are severe in nature... architecture styles are from the early 1900s... development is nil... there is a feeling that time has stood still since then... and it has.

The Island, as it is called by its inhabitants, is a special place with cobblestone streets, blue waters filled with sailboats and wonderful pristine white beaches to frolic on to your heart's content... you can play in the sand, ride a bike, devour ice cream, indulge in delicious seafood... or perhaps, sing the national anthem, cheer your favorite NIRL team to victory, buy you some peanuts or Crackerjacks, a coke and a hot dog, sing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game"... then repeat... repeat... and repeat again... life is good on the Island.

Life travels at a different pace on North Island... no cars are permitted... just bicycles to get around... in town all your needs are close by and within walking distance... the Island also has a highly-efficient public train system that runs between the 12 towns.

Stordahl himself planned each one of the towns... small cottages that were affordable, quite comfortable and durable, that needed little upkeep... he wanted North Island to be a pictureesque retirement destination... and it began to flourish in the early part of the 1900s... Stordahl died a very rich man in 1942.

THE NORTH ISLAND VIEW
Sunday, February 5, 1950


NIRL READY AND RARIN' TO GO
A new baseball league is coming soon to North Island... the North Island Recreation League is all set with 12 teams, ready and rarin' to go... tryouts were held at each of the area high schools and now the teams are well-stocked with many of the high school stars of yesteryear... the teams are filled to the brim with former diamond heroes and baseball hero wannabes... player ages range from 21 to 40... Albert Carnegie of the Kofa Kings (21) and Zachary Jones of the Theodore Bobcats (21) finished school in 1945 and are the youngest performers, while Kenny Cline of the Kinston Firebirds (41) and Paul Miller of the Wafford Eagles (40) are the oldest... Cline graduated from high school in 1925.

Games will be played each Sunday afternoon at the local parks... each town team has a 15-man roster, all chosen from the local high school alums... to play for a team you must be a graduate of that school... the season will last until almost October... the NIRL will begin play on March 5... there are two separate leagues: the NIRL First Division and the NIRL Second Division... the regular season will consist of 30 games... 15 home games and 15 away games... there will be no interleague play... the leagues will use a process common in soccer leagues abroad called Promotion and Relegation... at the end of the season the two worst teams in the First Division will be demoted or relegated to the Second Division, while the two top teams in the Second Division will be promoted to the First Division.

NIRL SECOND DIVISION

BIG CROWDS WELCOME NIRL TO THE ISLAND
Not only were the games well-attended, the fans were treated to some first-class baseball on the opening day of the new North Island Recreation Baseball League... all three contests in the Second Division were one-run affairs... Dutton skimmed past Kinston 4-3... West Chester nipped Joliet 5-4 in 11 innings... and Jackson nudged Theodore 3-2 on the first day of action.

Congrats on your new dynasty. I'm both jealous and impressed. You have three quality dynasties and I haven't posted one.

I need dedicated viewers like you...you might be the only one... don't waste your valuable time on some dynasty report when you could be checking out the Islandian Pro Alliance and the North Island Recreation League.

One must spend their limited time wisely.
