SENATOR ATWATER ON THE QT……IN LBTS!……

On the cover and with a full page spread… ala…Obama on his bike….Kerry on his wind-rider… Jeff Atwater was in the bottom of the Furth’s Blue seas pool….getting ready for his ocean dive…with his host…. Vice Mayor McIntee…and of course the official Town photographer- hotel owner-dive expert……..Marc Furth…….

all hush-hush…wanting to keep this low-key…the full spread…cover and pics…included the info…. that the Vice Mayor did not forget to do the town’s business and inform him of what’s going on around here…..

HMMM…low-key….HMMM…no Mayor…..HMMMMM….no photo-op……

Madam Mayor must not be pleased……….

Noticed something in the Times/Town Topics……(same list appears in both)…..all the new Board Members are in alphabetical order….so when did u come before r?………Furth …….before…Franczac….OOPs……

OOPs…1 more time….Looks like newly appointed Chair to the Adopt- A – Street Program…dropped out before the paper was published…back to the drawing board…more to come…..

Speaking of boards…a check should be done now that ethics ruling is out…that found there was Probable Cause for conflict with being Chair of the CIC and being a commissioner….although it was tossed….to avoid any further ethics charges made….ask the Town Atty. to check it out…. since the new Chair of the CIC is also the Vice Chair of the P&Z board….and will be “acting” Chair while Chair Peanuts Wick is away…. same for the CIC treasurer who is Chair of the BOA….save the drama…and the expense later on…

Peculiar………… nothing on the ethics charges…HMMM……….

a small article on the gas port….

and the Times…got a full page ad from Calypso….HMMM…sense a pattern here….as with full page ads from AMR….How’s that work?………

Lovely obituary for Uli Brandt…from his sons….class act……..

Obit below the fold for Joe Guerrero…..facts are off though….unfortunately Joe never got to chair a meeting….he was not appointed Chair until after the first Master Plan Steering meeting…and did not attend the second due to illness…Paul Novak… the appointed Vice Chair…stepped in…..

ALERT!….HE IS ALIVE AND WELL IN LBTS….JOE COURIEL….that is…so many think it was he who passed away…….and unfortunately some on the dais only added to the mix-up……..last week…….

Commissioner comments….more of the same … from the Vice Mayor ……re-hashing his comments from last Thur. on the dais…in his usual style…. and his take on the rulings…a little “glossed over”…..the press release of the actual ethics ruling….previous post…under scoops….he’ll have to wait and see if the retraction he demands will be in the Futures…2 weeks from now…(Futures is on a 3 week publishing schedule)…or if it is only by email…(as the original charges were made)…or ignored….Comm. Silverstone…talked of the democratic process…will of the majority….Comm. Clottey wrote of her reasoning for voting to purchase the adjacent hotel property…the waste of time and money from having a warehouse located west of town…..(now up for sale…bids were expected last week.)…and her stance on the gas port….

Lots of reprints seen in other publications….

MIA…an article by their #1 investigative reporter….again….what’s up with that?………….Too bad for his many fans….

NO HARM….NO FOUL…..

To” Hank”…….When you told me point blank a few weeks back…”you’re on the other side”…I told you not so….then I wrote about seeing validity in both sides…which you should have read because you told me you read my site throughout the day…. plus a little more description on your lack of attire when you do….to which I responded…”Way too much information… Hank” producing a giggle from you and Comm. Clottey at the bids for the Pavilion….no harm…no foul…sticking with your baseball scenario…but… I do not hold anything against you….since that would be hypocritical….you have every right to write your opinions…and “Hank”…I have been where you are now…immersed in the thick of what you are being fed….so I’ll just sit back and wait to see if you too start to question….in the next year… for I wasn’t the 1st to walk away…and will not be the last….by the way….thanks for all the new readers…who logged on to BCbythesea…. after reading your piece…and Go Marlins!

The Pelican….

JUDY VIK IS EVERYWHERE………..

Second week in a row….Ms Vik is the reporter extraordinaire….

Front page …. LBTS news……. the ethics charges….to the safety complex….and on to the iguanas….all previously posted….right here….

Also as previously posted…….. here in SRClub…the Times and Futures are pretty much stagnant…along with the bulk delivery of the Town Topics…. ( a change that should be reconsidered by the town) the stacks are basically untouched…so the Pelican IS the primary source of PRINTED local news… that seems to make it into the residents homes…..
