“The Democrats’ Five Stages

Alex Stevenson

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross published a groundbreaking analysis of the changes that happen to people upon been informed of a terminal illness. In her 1969 book, On Death and Dying, Kubler-Ross describes five stages of grief, a process by which people deal with tragedy, especially when diagnosed with a terminal illness. Her work created awareness to the sensitivity required for better treatment of individuals who are dealing with a fatal disease.  The five stages are:

Denial is a temporary defense for the individual.

Anger — when denial fails, resistance and rage against the truth replace it.

Bargaining involves the hope that the inevitable can be delayed.

Depression is the beginning of understanding the inevitable.

Acceptance is honestly dealing with the reality of the situation.

The Democrats are going through this process.”…. link to full article below …

BC- While you may or may not agree with Mr. Stevenson…the first thing that came to mind for this writer…the “5 stages” after being unilaterally terminated as Town Manager came to mind…Hmmm… With yesterday’s morning “Shade Session” at Jarvis Hall…which stage is Stevenson’s former boss in today?…. Also, Readers will remember it was TM Colon and her “galpal’ Kathy O’Brien who went after Mr. Stevenson to stop his unemployment benefits .. we understand their reason was to protect the “public monies”…HA!…

LEAVE YOUR BOARDS ON THE ATV’S BOYS ….

We hear the Commissioners have been given a copy of the current VFD contract and the word is the Town Manager will be meeting with the VFD Board now that its President Ken Johnson dodged the outgoing “bullet” from Chief Perkins a few weeks ago… This Town Manager and Town Atty. are stuck with only what’s in the contract and what’s in the budget…The VFD as so often touted from the dais by the “2-Hats” are a contracted private corporation and Town vendor …despite all the “blurry lines” crossed in the past…(prev. posts)…  Was and is the VFD currently covered by Workmen’s Comp….. as required…Are the men/women getting medical /background checks as required?…. Does the Chief meet state requirements to be fire chief?…Are there too many full time paid employees to be considered a volunteer fire department? …Are the Town and the department violating state statute by profiting from VFD inspections and sharing the those profits for apparatus purchases? …Did the Board give Perkins a pass on his alleged falsifying of his application in 2005?… Perkins sent in his resignation to the Commission to take effect on Sept. 30th…. will he be allowed to stay on as a volunteer?…

EXCERPT…

“SEAN D’OLIVEIRA  (Son of LBTS-PIO Steve D’Oliveira)

One of the cheapest and easiest ways to get around Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, the Pelican Hopper is in danger of becoming a thing of the past.

With ridership lacking, the free community bus shuttle could be cut from Broward County‘s budget.

In an effort to keep the bus running for residents who have come to depend on it, town officials are organizing a summer contest during to see which current riders can recruit the most new riders to the shuttle.
“We want to encourage more ridership so we can maintain our funding,” said Lauderdale-by-the-Sea Mayor Roseann Minnet.

Riders who recruit the most residents will receive prizes, including lunch with Minnet and recognition at a City Commission meeting, as well as gift baskets and gift certificates to local restaurants

Minnet has already taken two trips on the shuttle in an effort to understand residents’ concerns about the service and other issues in the city as well. Minnet will also ride the shuttle July 4 and in August.

“It’s been fun,” Minnet said. “Everyone is so grateful for it.”

BACKPEDAL …

What do Gladys Leeks, Associate Planner Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization and LBTS Town Clerk June White have in common… recalling sent e-mails for error…Ms. Leeks has done this a few times while sending out info for the A1A Scenic Highway…and apparently TC White just did it in wrongly asserting the Roundtable for July was on Wed. July 7th…Roundtables always follows the the Commission meetings until further notice… We also hear she cleared that issue up as if the Commissioners were unaware as well…Ms. White does have a calendar scheduling deficiency that is ongoing…sad to say….This writer believes the first BOA meeting at nighttime will be on July 7th at 6:30 pm per a vote to make it a nighttime board per Comm. Sasser and a 5-0 vote …

While the names are new under the BOA on the Town’s website the days has not been updated …OOPS!…
