Here’s The Scoop … Little Birdies …

“LITTLE BIRDIES IN LBTS …

Dear Readers… Back from the windy city… and happy to report …”little birdies” all around LBTS kept this writer well informed of happenings…planned and unplanned in our little town…A big thanks to you all! …

We hear the CIC  will be having a fundraiser on Saturday, November 21st, 2009 at the Surf  and Yacht Club in south end of town on Palm Avenue. They say to bring a friend and come join in the fun and to help elect two Commissioners and a Mayor who will support keeping our Town the charming seaside community we came here to enjoy. Dinner, drinks and music will be provided. They hope to see you there….BUT…

We also hear that the members of the Surf and Yacht Club have asked for it to be stopped!…

We hear that many of the members do not like their club being used for a political faction in town…They want no more CIC meetings in their private, non-political club….OUCH!…

So where will the fundraiser be?….

All bets are the LBTS Community Church will be the site for this spur of the moment CIC Fundraiser…..That is if CIC President Bob Roberts follows the wishes of the Surf and Yacht Club. Why the Community Church? ….It’s where Cristie Furth has been seen preening and politicking for a possible run as commissioner if she can do what she could not do last time around in 2008 and get someone else to run for Mayor!..(“Spreadsheet” Silverstone)…The dwindling CIC  membership and those who are still receiving newsflashes and this invitation …many who are long overdue on paying their annual CIC dues, with no intention of ever paying them again…received the invitation this last weekend…just one week prior!…OOPS!. They need this fundraiser especially after a look at their recent required CIC filing that  show they had a paltry $2000 in their coffers…and nary a new member joining since Jan. 2009…Those newly enlisted members in January were from one south end of town condominium, courtesy of a relatively new member’s effort in signing up her neighbors…and of course VFD members…who most likely told to join by you know who or else!…

Still roiling around this town…is the rumor of the Clottey-Parker fast food friendship that produced an “all is forgiven?”…from “Clueless” Commissioner…toward “Mr Oliver” the man the CIC tried unsuccessfully to recall just a few short years ago…Making friends over a “Big Mac”?…Was the Commissioner given the heads up by the CIC board to make nice and offer up a vote to return Parker to the Hillsboro Inlet?…A few meetings back none other than Mrs. “Truth Deflector” McIntee,  a CIC board member and wife of the then- Commissioner who spearheaded the CIC’s effort  to get rid of Parker at all costs……spoke of Parker’s keen ability to keep decorum in Jarvis Hall!…Strange bedfellows indeed!…Desperation all around in the CIC …or devious dirty deeds…Mc-Furth style?… We hear Parker actually believes Comm. Dodd was the one who “spearheaded” his recall…WRONG!…Comm. Dodd was the Chair of the CIC and that is the only reason his name appeared on the action…Parker has already lost all credibility in the Palm Club…letting the “cat out of the bag” on its private property status after he had no backing for another run at Mayor in 2008….Is he really willing to lose it throughout the rest of the town…joining forces with his nemesis?….If so… that will be some story!…(What fun those tapes will be to put on…McIntee vs Parker 2006-2008!)….Where’s Ken Wardlaw in all of this?…Seething we imagine!……And what about Clottey’s friend, John Thompson…and the former Editors/Owners of the BTSTimes?…Have they too witnessed the sudden closeness that is said to be?…Commissioner Silverstone quit the Optimist Club a few years back …He did it on the dais because he would no longer be on something Parker was on!…Has he joined Clottey..Furth…McIntee and the CIC to make up with Parker?…WOW!..

Now, for those who say…this writer is now talking to those who were the opposition in 2008 …there is a big difference…I did not know all the facts…blinded by the “kool-aid” ..But McIntee-Silverstone- Furth-Clottey- Wardlaw-MacMillan- CIC- VFD and Parker…any laying down of arms…after the demise of the VFD…the recall… and so much more…can only add up to one thing…POWER AND PAYBACK AT ALL COSTS!…PERFECT!…

We hear the Town Manager made a big blunder and the Town Atty. was none too pleased…The Manager distributed the first Ordinances on the referendum items to the commissioners…OOPS!…It was not to be distributed yet!…After a call to the Atty. from some of those commissioners…we were told the Manager most likely received “THE” call!…But anyone who really believes this Town Atty. would let the Manager have it…is sorely out of touch!…From what we have seen on the dais…it’s clear..the TM is the one that calls the shots!…Sadly, many have observed the lack of direction found from the Town Atty. to the commission when asked…almost never offered independently…There is the over direction seen in the Town Atty.’s work product…Such as the ITB/RFP changes in the the Purchasing Manual that were not as the commission voted on…(more on this to come)… no doubt this will continue until March 2010….

Do we have a little “McIntee” in the VFD Dept.?…We hear on Saturday night there was a fire at a condo in the south end of town…and later on a car accident near Palm ave…..The Command car came barreling down Commercial Blvd….Lights and siren blaring…took the corner of A1A and Commercial turning right and almost smacked into 4 cars!…It is said the cars were honking their horns and pedestrians witnessing it…were aghast!… It was not the Deputy Chief ,we are told …it was his “Protege’ “Captain Miko Angeles… We have heard also the ladder truck was out and about …at places it could be of no need or use……such as auto accidents…and Midnight calls or tours at the Pier…If the “birdies” are correct…looks like this Captain is following his “Trainer 3’s ” footsteps….giving many inside and outside  of the department much to be concerned and angry about!… Where was the “Little Chief” Perkins? … He of the 15 second average response time?…YIKES!!!….

The event of the week was at Interior Digs…… with lots and lots of “tweets” coming  from those attending it …..pics and more …to come in the next post!…

Reminder … tomorrow night …( open to the public/ televised on Comcast Ch. 78)….Nov. 17th…7 pm Jarvis Hall Master Plan Steering Committee ….That is unless there is a sudden cancellation…due to  lack of MPSC members….Will the CIC contingency of the MPSC be unable to attend…busy looking for another Sat. venue for their fundraiser…if their President Bob Roberts listens to the Surf and Yacht Club Board and puts the kibosh on it!… Hmmmm….

more to come…
