3/21/08 Pelican is out…

lets get this one out of the way…no my submission for a response to the editorial and story in the last edition was not printed…

I have been informed that at times the Editor like another local Editor “tweaks” their reporter’s stories to fit the slant of the paper and the Editors view….

I have been a recipient of this myself… long ago …..having to keep my originals submissions and any re-writes… and “edits” for those times I might have felt intimidated by either those that “edited” my work or in case the subject came after me…I could show it was not my re-write….so if the “scoop” is true…my sympathies ….

No surprise my rebuttal was ignored….

I will continue to comment on the paper though…

Good thing the perk of LBTS Commissioners were a stipend of $50 a month for cell phone use…rather than a city- issued cell phone as is the case in Deerfield according to the front page story …Commissioner Gonot is having to explain using it for personal calls….

can you imagine what it would it would be like to have to go through the Commissioner’s cell phone bills to see who they talked to…deciding what was city use and what was personal? Their enemies would have a field day…a whole new Topix blog site would open ……

Front and center…AMR/BSO…from workshop last week…in previous posts…

1 question that needs fleshing out…from the article …

AMR would handle billing and collection for a set period of time and then be open for discussion…..needs specifics!

2nd question that definitely needs answers….the exchange with the Town Manager/Mayor… the do-over RFP accusation…which obviously was contained in one of the Mayor’s infamous note cards! Town Manager should not let this go!

Fair article…facts only…
What is it with Dogs and beaches/parks….in communities…it rears its head in LBTS (is this one coming back with the new commission?)….St Petersburg.. in previous post….and 3 letters to the Editor in Pelican.

In previous scoop…a surprise addition of the Easter festivities today in LBTS…surprise ..why?…read the scoop…let’s see if this was known ahead of time by those who look to “enforce” the no Pelican entries or not…fall out to come?
