Pelican Paper 3/28/08

Nice front page…with a nod to the outstanding …largely attended….. Easter- By- The- Sea event at Municipal Park…..

Then SPLAT…..

inside….page 2…. a totally biased headline on the Vik story about the LBTS awarding the EMS contract to AMR last Tuesday at the commission meeting….

Lauderdale- By- The- Sea ousts Broward Sheriff’s Office EMS in favor of AMR Ambulance services

The story written by Vik explains right in the first paragraph …American Medical Response or AMR will be the new provider of emergency medical services in Lauderdale- By- The- Sea starting in October….

So what happened with this mis-leading headline….the editorial control of the publisher?

Maybe Ms. Vik should write her own headlines? Her story is accurate and based solely on facts…no bias…so what happened?

Pelican does not need to do this again…a disservice¬† to the readers and those already fragile residents who bought into the BSO/ election fear mongering….

I do not agree with much the Vice Mayor has to say these days….but…

this time …on AMR….if they screw up….if they are not the equal EMS as they have portrayed themselves….

he may be the 1st one on their case….but the fallout will be deafening!

The future of the CIC majority on the dais will rise and fall on this issue …and the VFD…..

More on the VFD to come …..

Next ….seems Ms Vik took on my previous posts about the Chamber in town…their building…numbers dropping of visitors to the chamber….and a Sentry article I posted a link to about chambers being obsolete….

Nice fluff pieces… there are 2 in the paper about the chamber….but numbers will tell it all…

what will the March numbers show compared to last year?….what will an audit show?…needs to be 5 years of records ….any less will not do….

before the budget is decided …..
