The Times…

The good news….delivered in Condo by Sat….

The bad news…close to the same amount deliverd…late 2 weeks back…still remained yesterday beore the new stack arrived…

Nice pic on the front…

although …they buried the “coup”…. of the much desired picture by residents …. of VFD trainees!

Overall…a little light on info…

the title….. Mayor Minnet pleads for Friday night Jazz…

gave the Mayor a big step…UP…(see previous post)…

The Mayor was on the side of the majority in town of this one….

For the times to try and turn it around… on why the previous administration did not do what the new Town Manager apparently did…call the state thus causing a state …(pun intended)… of upheaval that reverberated throughout this town…resulting in it becoming the #1 on topic of all……. is quite a reach!

It became a “gotcha” to a businessman who has done so much for this town…. many are shaking their heads….unimpressed by the bureaucracy coming from town hall administrators…previous posts…

These businesses…both Aruba and Village Grille were said to have been “ambushed” by not being informed of the state info…until the day of the commission meeting..although the Manager was aware for a few weeks!

Mr. Gadsby followed all the protocols presented to him…in the expected manner…having no heads-up …that anything was amiss….. he would have been prepared …if so informed….he stated…at the podium that evening…

Offers of a compromise of one sort or another from the Commissioners were unnecessary… the situation should have been handled in the more desirable way….

either the Town Manager or her Assistant… informing him as soon as the information came from her call…and offers of problem solving …to remedy the situation…

3 weeks after the last Jazz night…the proverbial balls are all still in the air… and fickle regulars look for other venues in other towns…

Surprised to see the Editors decided to forgo their “rule” of never printing anything that is published in a “competing” paper…does not apply to obituaries…

BCbythesea wrote an article about the reimbursement….of funds from LBTS for legal fees…sending it to the Times…Futures aand Pelican…only Futures printed it…although altering the part that questioned the new Mayor…and her statements of her due diligence…

Times did not print it…due… we were informed …to this “rule”…

Ms Boutin’s lovely obit was given a special courtesy…nice going!…appropriately so… …

Must differ on the opinion on the new Town Attorney…who looked like he was not readily available that evening…admitting he his head was elsewhere after being asked a question….

Always welcome the time to read Rev. Hunsaker…

unfortunate placing….

John Thompson’s analysis of the excess revenue…an important step in the process of getting to the bottom of this mess…a feature front and center…more appropriate…

no letters this edition…
