A continuation on the Times … ( previous post about “staff writer”….)

After writing the previous post about the difference being in the eye of the observer…on how the March 11, 2008 Commission meeting was handled…

Commissioner comments from Commissioner Silverstone appeared to be quite an opposite view…

The “staff writer” was concerned about the audience “controlling” the meeting… and describing a “free- for-all” when spectators took it upon themselves to approach the podium at will….

This is on page 3 of the Times…turn the page to page 10…Opinions…containing Commissioner comments….

Commissioner Silverstone explains the type of government we have in this town…and who is at the top?

The chain of command; on top are you, the citizens of LBTS ……

So there-in lies the rub….if we are to believe the Commissioner….then what transpired on the 11th…was perfectly acceptable….almost a desired scenario.

Anyone interested in seeing what the meeting was like can got to the town website and watch it for themselves….www.lauderdalebythesea-fl.govĀ 

My understanding when involved in this past election was the Times was going to be more mainstream after the election was over…. and for an issue it was….seems just as the Futures that published last week….short lived……good news for the Hi- Rise/Pelican around here…. (as stated in previous posts)

I received an email from a resident in building A today…he had plenty to say about both papers….and gave me permission to print it….but I am going to hold off for now…he has stated that he intends to send a similar note to both the Times and Futures…. I emailed him back to do so…

If he gets no response from either….I will then put it on in its entirety after he has told me he followed through….and the next editions come out.
