A PARTY OR A COMEBACK?….

A PARTY….

Scene at The Ambry…a 75th Birthday party for Bernie Eckhardt….. a room packed with friends…..previous members of the LBTS Commission…Boards…Committees…

All giving Bernie a “vote of confidence”that he doesn’t look a day over 58!…….

WHAT GIVES?…..

Walking back home…after eating at the Ambry (not a party guest)…saw the dismal town flagpoles up close…previously posted…the too small American/Town flags…and the screw up with the “welcome to”…that was supposed to be over /or on either side of the Town Seal…not IN the seal itself (again- is that even legal?)…but we were told it was an wrap around piece around the cement base we were paying for…not so…its a cut-out seal screwed into the cement base…

12/16/08 Commission Agenda- backup…2. CONSENT AGENDA

c. Commission approval for the installation of the Town Logo on the flag poles by TW Signs at a cost of $350 (Assist. Manager Olinzock)…2 -wrap around aluminum signs w/ logo for bases on Commercial Blvd.

Who authorized the change?…..and what was the final cost?…..

STILL ON “OTHER MEDICAL CALLS”….

Looks like a few “other medical” calls had Engine 12 and a Chief….following AMR….today…the latest one…at this writer’s building…tonight….

ANOTHER ONE….2….3….4…. BITE THE DUST……

Signs of doors closing throughout the town….T-shirt shops are closing…thanks to the Walmart of LBTS- Wings …the economy….and the Pavilion construction….

Dairy Queen is out….

Castle By The Sea Motel is up for sale….

AT TOWN HALL…..

Went for the back up….and saw….

The new Town Attorney…making her final Commissioner meeting of the day….with Comm. Clottey…..Commissioner Dodd had his 1 to 1 meeting in the morning….Susan Trevarthen…http://www.wsh-law.com/

At the front window a black and white photo copy of the Pavilion….dated 2/27/09…with the LBTS bulding code stamp….aren’t the permits with Broward County?….

Also placed front and center at the reception desk….a pamphlet…’Florida Beach Safety Awareness” from NOAA…

underneath the title….’SWIM NEAR A LIFEGUARD Swimming in a guarded area greatly reduces the risk of drowning”….I kid you not!…In the Town without lifeguards….

FROM “WHATEVER HAPPENED TO”….

The painted poles that were to be put up and down the beach with the signs of where you are located…including a safety device…Way back when…around the time the Public Safety building was being painted…the VM touted how the Municipal Works “guys” were painting up a storm….What happened?….Paint never dried?….HMMMM…..

ALMOST HAD A SHORTENED COMMISSION MEETING…..

When looking at the backup material…it skipped from page 3 to page 5…no Old Business…and only half of New Business…OOPS!…

Nikki fixed it…A copying machine snarl-up …Sorry people…I know it’s right up there with reminding the teacher about our homework!….

Despite accusations made in the Mc-Furth Times …this edition…( 3/6/09)…by the VM in his Commissioner Comments…the staff was again very polite, accommodating and did not seem at all ready to jump ship…perhaps that’s the reception HE receives?….YIKES!…

Nikki is one exemplary employee that would pass any Performance Review with top marks…a real asset to the town….the real wearer of many “hats”…

more to come………
