Here’s The Scoop …. Too Much On My Plate …

July 28, 2010 by Barbara

LILLY…PUBLIC RECORD REQUESTS ….MULTIPLE MEETINGS …OH MY! …

Dear Readers …I know you’re all accustomed to late…late..night posts that await you all in the morning after the Town meetings as well as the agendas right before…Seems this writer has “fallen down on the job”…due to “Too much on my plate!” …

As Lilly grows and grows…each week time is less and less under my control …3 month old Lilly now loves nothing more than to stand …pulled up to sit she locks in her legs and pulls up to stand…This could be a first for the Cole Family going as far back as either of us can recall on either side’s family tree ….finally we might have a rope climber!… I’ll explain that one…Lilly’s mom was 24 inches and 8 lbs 4 oz when she was born and grew up and up to 6 feet tall …She came home one day in grade school with a very serious concerned and defeated look…When asked what was the matter she replied “I can’t climb the rope in gym class”…We laughed out loud and said “Honey, you come from a long line of non-rope climbers!”… Looks like Lilly will break that tradition!… In the meantime as Lilly’s world expands …so does ours with ways to keep up with her …The number of apparatus now sitting in the living room and in the doorway to keep her jumping …literally … keeping her amused and engaged… Therefore …after a day of Lilly…something has to give…And at this juncture of what certainly appears to be a growth spurt that would be those late…late night posts if the day of is a non-stop Lilly one as most are!…

Also, the Town has suddenly caught up and my public records requests are flowing in…I’m receiving lots of interesting information that will be revealed …Add to that all the Town meetings complete with voluminous backup materials and the meetings running back to back to back such as last night and again today…

I will get it all on …in some form or another…asap ….as time allows along with the behind the scenes stuff that still comes my way each and every day…Many thanks to those who remain Avid Readers and are also dedicated to wanting  to make sure that information continues to be available to all who want it out in the open…

That said…last night’s meeting sure showed who read the budget and who did not…who did their homework and who did not…who is just skating by and who realizes this is the real deal…It showed who is stuck and repeating old answered questions …perhaps in the hopes of receiving different answers?…. Or…sadly perhaps too many senior moments?… It showed how much this new Commission as a whole has accomplished since March and what luck they had in the timing of Ms. Hoffmann and Bud Bentley coming on board…(Hope their names are in the 30 resumes received thus far for the permanent position) ….The budget showed the new Int.Manager and her Asst. TM really listened to the Commission for the most part …. From observing some real positive and surprising changes in performance and attitude from some long time staff these days …it proves what good administrating can produce as it trickles down to staff!… The details from the meetings will come as I have stated …after tonight’s Shade Session Town of LBTS v. Esther Colon at 4 pm …The Coral Reef Project Workshop at 5:30 pm …public comment is allowed…and the CIP discussions and more at the 7 pm Commission Roundtable…no public comment… all are open to the public…on Comcast channel 78 and online …streamed on the Town’s website…

One last note…again Congratulations are in order…pun intended ….after the engagement last night of Mayor Roseann Minnet and Chuck Curtis…(prev. post)…

more to come….
