the 3 week cost-savings is definitely in effect…3rd time…at the 3 week stretch….

BCbythesea…of course they could always chalk it up to being “green”….

This issue…..the paper really “maxed out” on their “good deed” of welcoming Vets to LBTS …

Makes the whole wonderful offer… just feel a little less wonderful….

It’s one thing to have an article or two………(such as the cover and thanking the benefactors)….but…..

1. The front page…. pictures and article….

2. An editorial by the woman involved from the inception…doing what she does best….giving the second account of the “wonderfulness” of this program…only to turn on a dime and “chew out” the “New Guard” for not participating in this “wonderfulness”…

BCbythesea…checked with some of the “New Guard”…who were not asked or offered any information to be involved….

3. A letter to the Editor…thanking the above Editor and the paper…..

4. Page 5 …a continuation of the front page story…with accompanying picture of the Mayor…State Senator Atwater…and others… “Old Guard”….

correctly done….with little fanfare……expected in return….

Editor Brown…stuck to his position….of opposing it….

3. A copy of the letter of opposition from Galt Assoc….

4. Continued from page 1 to page 5….

5. The Mayor’s comments…which flip- flops…. from wanting to hear all sides…as stated on the dais …5/27/08….back to being against….in this issue….

Nice that Editor Brown apologized and corrected the votes of Comm. Dodd and Clottey from the previous issue…

BCbythesea….Funny observation…. upon seeing the full page ads in the Sun-Sentinel/Miami Herald for the Calypso/Suez gas port over the last few day…with it’s style…and blue ocean background…it seemed so familiar….
