Here’s The Scoop….. Is Vice Mayor McIntee Religiously Tone-“Def” In His Bid For Re-Election? …

October 28, 2009 by Barbara

NO COMPARISON ….

“Koufax is also remembered as one of the outstanding Jewish athletes in American sports. His decision not to pitch Game 1 of the 1965 World Series because it fell on Yom Kippur garnered national attention as an example of conflict between social pressures and personal beliefs.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandy_Koufax

Dear Readers… First we had the Yom Kippur fiasco… when the Town Clerk  was errant in her duties to advise the commission of this high holy day conflicting with the final adoption of the Town budget (prev. posts)………This Colon administration in true form made excuses and made false statements  to cover for the clerk…saying the Broward County Jewish Federation said this was an “acceptable” holiday and that the Jewish Federation had given them a calendar…only to have to change course and haphazardly admit that was not true when this writer contacted the Jewish Federation Community Director who was quite taken aback and called the Town that day……The Town Clerk asserted the Community Director said “mistakes happen”..We doubt that…And the later produced documentation  from the clerk further showed how poorly the she did with the material provided to her 2 years prior after another such incident occurred!… A resident came forward afterward to say he had called the Town Clerk on the matter and she was rude and then hung up on him!…BFF Jimmy-boy Silverstone put his foot in it as well…asking if this was an “applicable or non-applicable Jewish holiday”!…After this to try and  solve this quickly in full  pre-re-election mode…… Chabad of LBTS was contacted for lighting the menorah this year (it was not lit last year)…In choosing this observant Rabbi, the menorah can not be lit the first night of Hanukkah due to it falling on a Friday…..This writer wrote that it should be done by someone else who could light it on the first night…but that too fell on the tone-deaf ears of the Town…and the lighting will be on the 3rd night… Now we head into the latest installment of this debacle ….

Last night at the commission meeting… the Vice Mayor compared his Town Manager Performance Review of all 5’s given to Esther Colon to Pitcher Sandy Koufax!….OH, MY GOD!… (Yep, my God)…Sandy Koufax is not only for his pitching but for his observance of not pitching in the World Series on Yom Kippur!… YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP!…

VM comments- ” I wasn’t gonna bring up the Town Manager evaluation but since you threw a curve (speaking to Comm. Dodd) I gotta say, you know Sandy Koufax was a great pitcher and if somebody said how would you rate that pitcher on a one to five scale. I would say five. Was he perfect? No. Was he the best? Yep. Why don’t I say four because the guy was an absolutely phenomenal pitcher, he did everything and nobody is always right. This guy was just the best of the best.”

In this writer’s opinion there is no doubt that Town Hall East (AKA the Taco Bell Motel) is running the dais…  Protocol was ignored in an effort to appease the Jewish voters in LBTS…. We heard that the Town Chaplain was called by Comm. Clottey to inform him “We have a Rabbi for the invocations”…Then Vice Mayor McIntee approached the Town Chaplain to inform him “We have a Rabbi for the invocation”… Marc Furth also spoke to the Town Chaplain and asked him if he knew about the Rabbi for the invocation… Now that’s  CHUTZPAH !….We hear the Town Chaplain was quite surprised due to proper protocol being disregarded by these 3. When adhered to correctly it would be his duty to contact those who offer their service…. The Vice Mayor at his commissioner comments (continued below) really showed his truly distasteful colors…and  while it’s producing great fodder around these parts for his udder (Jimmy-boy-ism) stupidity and lack of sensitivity …it is also incredibly offensive, and disturbing!… Observing the after meeting dining at the Ale House of the McIntees, Furths and Comm. Clottey looks  adds to the “perception” of  what happened in this case…..It’s an ongoing event… for these 2 commissioners…

VM comments -” Now I’ve got some very good news for the Jewish community. A Rabbi has come forward we, we in the four years I’ve been up here, I’ve never seen a Rabbi come in and do our invocations. He has volunteered to come in and do it as many times as requested. He’s ah, I hear he’s a great guy. He’s got a great personality. He’ll keep GENDER NEUTRAL or however you want to say it and I hope we get some Catholic priests and some Protestant Priests and have an Iman (McIntee said E-man) who wants to come in. We need to spread it around because there’s a lot of different people in in this town and I think we should encourage this and it’s great. Our Jewish community in town has been neglected an awful lot in the last four  years and this is one way to say Hey, we know you’re out there and we support ya!”…

There’s no way around this one… It just needs to stop…now!…

more to come…..

Here’s The Scoop … PURE HOGWASH …. Updated…

September 11, 2009 by Barbara

THAT’S SOME “SPIN”- IN”  OF THE FACTS…MC-FURTH-SOMETIMES-NON-SENSE-NEWS…

Dear Readers …Sad to report but the theme of the Mc-Furth-Campaign is “DELETE”… and “DENIAL”….The Vice Mayor said on the dais  last Wednesday night  he deleted his e-mails…( prev. post LBTS agendas/ meetings cat.)… and that was only the beginning…in his comments in the new edition of VFD-CIC backed paper from Town Hall East…he says he is going to run on his record…perhaps he is planning to delete that as well!…This writer will help him with that “recovery” just as I helped him with his professed ignorance of e-mails… ( this from the Vice Mayor who once sat on the dais explaining he received a text … the Vice Mayor who on the dais explained how to get the decibel reading on his Iphone…Hogwash)…..

Let’s quickly peruse the Mc-Furth paper …which states below the header…”LOCAL NEWS YOU CAN TRUST”…Hmmmm….really?…Should we “trust” the Editors that show a photo of their “granddaughter”?….The little one is sure cute and proud as they are…the cutie is not their “granddaughter”…so trust em’ …Hogwash….The BSO must have been thrilled to have the Editor stop by for an interview…knowing quite well that the Furths are front and center on getting back the LBTS Police Dept…So trust em’…Hogwash….Lauderdale-by-the-Sea- still affordable…with the cartoon character (at least that was truthful) of the Town Manager…writing that she had a crystal ball…she foresaw the downturn in the economy and scaled back (not on HER salary…nope went up to $160,000+ )…and don’t forget the pre-penalty clauses on those promissory notes …..the purchase of the 2+ million run-down hotel…the stalled and moot on discussion west-side warehouse…and the 10.8% savings…not so fast….check the incessant flock of Town Manager inspired fees..that cannibalize the claim….so trust em’…Hogwash…Town Tidbits is back…(this writer used to do many of em’ for quite a time)…and boy, Moe’s mowin’ em’ down……Yann Brandt is a resident looking into his elected official and if  he had any prior knowledge about a dismissal of the BSO Police Chief, who’s dismissal impacted his town…Moanin’ Moe’s hubby, the Vice Mayor “turned the tables” by asking his opponents …Mayor Minnet and Commissioner Dodd who are now called the Old-Guard …quite amusing!… Is that like being :”branded”?…As for this writer, I’ll take the OG “brand” over the OMG “brand” that stands for OH MY GOD!… for the Mc-Gang…any day!…There’s a big difference Mrs. Mc-Detective…the Vice Mayor asked as Vice Mayor…and according to your “tidbit”…he’s looking for e-mails between this writer and Commissioner Dodd…Now imagine that Readers…a Vice Mayor wants e-mails between a private citizen who does not sit on any boards …owns no business looking for a Town contract and is not a fellow Commissioner…so there can be no Sunshine Law violation…no conflict of interest…Nope, it’s just a sitting official, his wife and their “gang” …”Detectives” all who want to see what email exchanges were made!…And these are the same people who accuse this writer of “taking notes on private conversations”…Commissioner Dodd is going to do what he sees fit….in complying…as for my e-mail exchanges…Have at em’…nothing is there to be concerned about…But why didn’t the Vice Mayor just ask for them…and leave the rest of the e-mails alone?…Planned retaliation for others? …By the way the dates…May 1- Aug. 13th…not Aug.17th…OOPs!…Hmmmm…so trust em’…Hogwash!….The paid ad from the CIC would make one think there are only 3 Commissioners on the dais who lowered the fees……so trust em’…Hogwash….An article by Ken Wardlaw who was quite a prolific in his daily ( throughout the day)  e-mails with this writer for quite some time..(his would be of far more interest for the Detectives)…..is shown in a photo that must be from circa ?…(What is up with many of the Times staff photos…Furth photo-shop)…looks like old fences were a-mended on the project that tore the Editor and the former mayor apart…for quite some time…so trust em’…Hogwash…. Town Commission Report Card…Commissioner Clottey must have been clueless on the re-run of dishing out the bias…for she was furious over the last one and told this writer she informed the Editors she was not amused by the “kindergarten teacher”……Wear that “F” proudly Mayor Minnet and Commissioner Dodd…for that “F” stuck on you from this “gang” …to the voters means you are …. FORTHRIGHT…..FAITHFUL ….FAIR  …..FRIENDLY …. and FURTH-LESS… …so after this 2nd Moe-mockery…trust em’…Hogwash….CIC-Commissioner Comments…Vice Mayor…talkin’ truth…”I don’t send e-mails” …”AOL deleted my e-mails”…”Vice Mayor-Deputy Chief of the VFD”…talkin’ truth..while the VFD By-laws say it is not allowed and  the Town acknowledged…no changes were made….

Barbara:

The Town Clerk’s office asked me to let you know the Town does not have any updated bylaws from the VFD after 10-1-08.

The Vice Mayor’s running  on his record…great…his opponents will see that AOL aka (his alter-ego)-ALIEN ONLINE LIAR keeps from deleting the past 3 1/2 years …so trust em’…Hogwash….

Commissioner Silverstone…Jimmy-boy…boy he’s taken a tumble off that wall…he took a great political fall… fallin’ on the old noggin’ one too many times…his continued “principles”…”promises he makes to himself”…”self determination”…”rules that are fair”…this is “in lock-step”…”BFF” Jimmy-boy…who let the VFD by-laws be ignored…who has increasingly appeared to enjoy his jabs across the dais…with that smirkin’smile…you know that smile Readers…watch for it…it’s the smirkin’ smile that appears on someone who nervously can’t help themselves when somebody breaks their neck…that smirkin’  smile…and his decision to follow his “Broom Boy” buddy full- out into the abyss …”udderly, reedicolussss “…so trust em’…Hogwash!….Commissioner Clottey….writes of John Thompson, former premier writer for the old BTSTimes…back when it offered up some real substance…..quite a hoot in her timing…coming right after the evening before this paper comes out when she and her CIC-  compadres… chose to turn their backs on John once more with their willingness to reintroduce an illegal storm water fee… (Note to John…stay in Pompano Beach)…so trust em’…Hogwash… The “Truth Defector”…tit for tat..on the BTSFuture mistake with the photo of the new BSO Chief…( payback for the Times faux pas headline a while back)…Esther Colon contract…the same..NO WAY…NO HOW… wake up! (previous post…scoops cat./ Bob Baldwin interview)….Baldwin was NOT paid for 10 weeks…check the post…or ask for a PRR (waiting time?/ and charge?)…No performance review for Baldwin…should have been…”McIntee would turn over emails if he had them. McIntee’s rarely uses email. He does not download his email to his computer but goes to his server, AOL to read them. The server deletes his emails after a certain amount of time so the requested emails were automatically deleted. Vice Mayor McIntee has no problem with AOL retrieving the emails if possible.”…Check it out folks…Vice Mayor McIntee was less than 90 days from the request….easy to retrieve…Vice Mayor McIntee knew he was required to be the custodian of his town business related e-mail…so do you really want to re-elect a man who erred in his duty and chose to not protect his records….purposely deleting 3 1/2 years of documentation being observed by all who sit beside him on the dais?….The stranded sailor…sorry …a picture says a 1000 words…no broken mast until the Town cut it up…and ALL bystanders on scene are standing their ground…the VFD did not arrive  quickly and help out the guy…and ain’t it curious that Times Editor and photographer Marc Furth, who arrived on the beach early on…did not put any photos in the paper?…..Maybe they were too… Mast-er-full?…..”Truth -Defector” ending on the Ed. Note..as the article began…. tit for tat…with BTS Future Editor Geesey…and her past finding of probable cause…The difference in hers…from McIntee/Silverstone…only one finding for Geesey…who actually took care of the mistake…and actually went forth and didn’t do it again.as instructed……As for McIntee/ Silverstone…going forth…and not repeating the actions …that’s a often- crossed line…so trust em’….Hogwash….Mary Ann Wardlaw/ CIC board member/ MPSC board member…..wife of the former Mayor…writes of Commissioner Silverstone and his excellent background in finance…from where?….She writes of Vice Mayor McIntee as a police officer…..who “understands  the constraints of being a part of municipality.”…HUH?….”They have walked a fine line of serving the needs of their constituents and preserving the fiscal integrity of Lauderdale-by-the-sea”….Hmmmm….like a 2+ million dollar crappy hotel…( and a $3 million one on the way)….voting for a $250,000 payout if fired contract for the Town Manager and either lying about it or not doing their homework…plus the buying, buying, and more buying as VFD members… (must be maxing out those non-profit credit cards…for all the cool big-boy toys)……so trust em’…Hogwash….Dignitaries …on the Reef Project… State Representative “BODANOFF”….and their McIntee quotes …(coached?)…and in true Furth-form actually admitting their bias with the Ed. Note …” Neither Mayor Minnet  nor Commissioner Dodd were contacted for comments.”…going on to say they (Ed. Furth 1 & 2) knew their views…(Note to the “Dignitaries who participated…would you have participated knowing the Eds. did this to a sitting Town Mayor and Commissioner?)…so trust em’….Hogwash…FFFRANK….we hear he said he was in the dark…didn’t know if there was a paper….so trust em’….Hogwash…..Shevaun/ Barbara/ Judy ….ladies once again…do you really want your articles to remain in the politically bent company they appear with?….should YOU trust em’…Hogwash….Letters to the Editor…Mr McGinnis…take a look at the emails…prev.post…do you sir, really want to send your letters in to a paper who endorses and supports  Vice Mayor McIntee after his rather unkind reference to you?….. R.W. (BOB) Roberts…is no ordinary letter writer…although he appears in each issue as one in his ongoing Hillsboro saga ( micromanaging …Hmmmm)… He should be writing as Editor which is what his title says he is…as well as CIC Chair…so trust em’…Hogwash!….Booster Funds…funding the back page $$$$$…growing their “team”…( Diving team?) …training with “vehical” extrication (McJon blankets used?)….and the trainer for this is?…Nice foam guys……but don’t see any bees around…….OOPS!…so trust em’…Hmmm….MAYBE…. after the October election of new VFD Officers ….But if we see more of the same…Vice Mayor McIntee remaining in the Deputy Chief position…in clear violation of the VFD longtime by-laws while the Vice Mayor running for a second term…trust em’….HOGWASH!…

The LOCO-BTSTIME(s)….. to put a lid on it….

Truth about advertisers……BTSFuture…15 ads…/ BTSTimes…5 ads…plus CIC/VFD/ AMR /Disabled Vets (July 4th)/ Editor’s motel…so advertisers trust em’…Hogwash!…
