Here’s The Scoop … Scene And Heard Around Town …

WAS THIS WHERE THE MOTEL ROOM WAS?…….

Did the former Town Manager have a room at the Public Safety Complex?… We have long heard rumors that there was one…Anyone taken a tour of the entire “Motel”?…. If so, did she also reimburse herself for staying there?…

……………………..

THE SENIOR CENTER DIRECTOR IS SMILING BIG THESE DAYS ….

We hear Armilio¬† (Senior Center Director) is one “Happy Camper”…He had his annual Broward County Audit this week…Turns out no only did he pass with flying colors (just as he has every year prior)…It was the regular annual audit and turns out¬† (no surprise to this writer) the county were never contacted by the former Town Manager as she and “Clottey” and the “gang” made accusations on the dais and put this man and Senior Center participants through hell!… We also hear that the contract was misread by both Clottey and Colon and correctly by Comm. Sasser… there was never a fear of any county retribution for funds!…

WHERE’S THE PAVILION CLOCK?….

What happened to the $1000 clock that former Comm. Silverstone and former Town Photog Marc Furth were making for the Beach pavilion?…We awaited some sort of campaign unveiling ..It never happened…The clock was shown over a year ago at a meeting…displayed in front of the dais…While it looked like a mail away for the kit project…it was paid for by us taxpayers and Comm. Silverstone said the 2nd component was in the works for the accompanying wind or some sort of measurement device…So where’s the clock and what was already paid for?…

COMING OUT OF THE WOODWORK ….

Former Employees of LBTS are coming forward and contacting this writer (as many have before them) and other key players with a big “Thanks” …. for the terminations of Colon/Olinzock… and more than a willingness to provide information … in the aftermath…

………………………

AUDIT …

Are we in need of an audit?…YEP!… But not a full-blown $200,000 Forensic one!…With the new TM on board and the audits going on in neighboring municipalities (see link below)…we can get to the bottom of things w/out the big buck$….

WHERE’S THE PARK?….

We hear the “Off-Site” warehouse may hold the park benches that were briefly used for the Minto Park some years back… Code needs to get the new vacant Minto property into compliance with sod and pull out those benches ASAP!…

……………………..

BSO PROVING THEY ARE THE “ONE” FOR LBTS …..

We are told there was a burglary this week at the home a former elected official…and it was done during daytime hours…Before any blame is laid on the BSO from the uninformed …the specifics we are hearing put the onus elsewhere…The BSO has been on a roll with busting crime in town…The problem in the stats it is said come from unlocked doors …on cars and on properties whether intentional or unknown …Check ALL your doors people…before you exit ….the car or the premises…and if you see something that makes you think twice call 911!… As previously posted the BSO submitted their numbers to the municipalities and County yesterday… Don’t skimp on police protection in LBTS!…

2 LANES ON EL MAR DRIVE …..

The MPSC took a walk last week and looked at the A1A project… (still needs to be canned)…The El Mar Drive Project will be addressed as well…1 lane or 2 lanes…Members may want to go the the Town website and take a look at the 2007 special meeting…2 lanes must remain…Those that go to make a change in the lanes ….. will see a lot of bark with the bites of the walkers on El Mar Drive!…

CHANGING OF THE “GUARDS” … 2 “BOBS” STEPPING DOWN….

The 2 PAC Presidents are stepping down in Town…UOT Pres. Bob Fleishman sent an e-mail saying he was done May with the UOT “blasts” being done today May 1st!..and CIC Chair Bob Roberts sent an e-mail a few weeks back looking for new board members…to possibly follow his counterpart in stepping down from the top position…. Any takers?….

VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPT.?….

Are they or aren’t they the LBTS “Volunteer” Fire Dept.?… Questions are being asked about the lack of “Volunteer” on some apparatus these days …(outgoing VM McIntee brought it up on his last day on the dais)…along with the # of full- time employees?… Growing pains?..Or changes ahead?… The new Town Manager needs to be informed she is a non-voting member of the VFD and she has the right for oversight…It is clear the Townspeople want to keep the VFD …What is not so clear ….does the VFD want to keep the volunteer in the LBTS Fire Dept. emblem?…. The VFD website has been updated!…. 2 items of interest …the “knox box” …which we were told should have been in place for the gas leak situation last month…and “Fire Marshal Steve Paine”….(why not listed as VFD not Fire Inspector?)…

JUDGE OLIVER PARKER?

“JAABlog published a new entry entitled “NO SO FAST …” on 4/28/2010 12:31:32 PM, written by JAABLOG.
NO SO FAST …

Buddy Nevins reports that Judge Lee Seidman has filed against Judge Susan Lebow. The article is here.

The announcement, however, is premature. Seidman did, in fact, redesignate his county court filing to Lebow’s race with Brenda Snipes’ Office, but that was strictly for campaign account reasons. He is still free to qualify in any race he chooses.

Seidman is currently en route to Tallahassee, with, we’re told, four circuit court qualifying packets. He may file against Lebow, or any other candidate, so long as the Friday at noon filing deadline is met. This one is coming down to the wire.

In other news, we’re hearing that candidate Oliver Parker may be jumping too. Possibly something to do with the Aleman/Perlman race” …

HE’S GOT COMPANY!… BEVERLY KENNEDY COUNTY COMMISSIONER CANDIDATE…


“She needs your support to become the new County Commissioner for Dist.4 to
represent the people of Broward. Beverly would like to finish the strategic plan
which she began in 2008 to solve Broward County Courthouse problems when
she proposed a plan to reform the Broward County Clerk of the Courts office,
Nov. 4, 2008 . Although she received over 148,000 votes, yet lost the
election, her plan and purpose for running has been over 70%
implemented !
Unlike the County Commissioner incumbent for Dist 4 , Bev
Kennedy’s plan would not raise taxes , nor waste our valuable financial
resources that should be used for other necessary Broward County Services.
Stay posted for weekly updates to: www.Beverly4Broward.com
Officially Beverly Kennedy is filed to be eligible as a Democratic
candidate for the Dist. 4 of the Broward County Commission Primary
Election Aug. 24,2010. She has chosen an excellent Deputy Treasurer
and Asst. Campaign Manager Randell (Randy) L. Pelham, who
professionally has over 17 years Law Enforcement experience, and
serves as Detective Sergeant of a Economic Crimes Unit.”
