Here’s The Scoop …This And That …

February 1, 2010 by Barbara

IF YOU THINK MAYORAL CANDIDATE JOE COUREL WANTS THE BSO POLICE AFTER 2011….THINK AGAIN…


BTSTimes 2007- “(the same charge used to justify not letting the old “Citizens Action Committee” use Jarvis Hall in 2002 after Joe Couriel had the gall to exercise his right of free speech by publicly criticizing Commissioner Yanni for not keeping Yanni’s 2000 election promise not to replace our own LBTS police force with BSO), “…OOPS!….

PAPER FOR SALE? ….

We hear the Furth-BTSTimes may be for sale?…Did they really buy it from MacMillan and wife for $5,000?…. If true it’s not too surprising to many… after seeing major problems with the last Candidate Silverstone-Evans- Couriel issue…including purposely falsifying the Mayor’s voting record!…The Mayor called the Times on it in her Commissioner comments on Jan. 26, 2010…(We hear Comm. “Clueless” Clottey has gotten an earful from angry constituents after she  attacked the Mayor for calling out the Times!)…Editor Cristie Furth was sitting in the hall and made no attempt to rectify it!..Ms. Furth could have come to the podium and set the Mayor’s record straight, without further delay…But the BTSTimes owner and publisher made to such attempt!… The paper also made false  statements about Candidates Sasser and Vincent… A look at the dismal number of advertisers (the BTSFutures picked up 7 more last issue!)…Perhaps the new leadership of the VFD  has gotten the message that donors to the VFD do not want their Booster funds to go to a politically motivated paper!…On Mayoral Candidate Joe Couriel’s G1 report was 907.37 to Owner/Publisher /Editor Marc Furth…(no purpose listed) and all know Town Hall East aka BTSTimes headquarters is campaign headquarters for Silverstone-Evans and Couriel!…And don’t forget the 5 days it took to distribute throughout the town!….OUCH!….. Feeling green?…The leftover papers can always be reused…as confetti on March 9, 2010!

IT JUST SEEMS WRONG ….

A resident pointed out to this writer something that just seems so wrong…The gentleman asked why “Official Town Photographer” Marc Furth was allowed to take bad pictures of town residents and print them in his BTSTimes newspaper?… Hmmm ……

…………………………………….

IS THERE A GARBAGE MUTINY IN TOWN ?….

Is there a mutiny against Choice garbage in town?…The Town Manager sent 2 separate letters to Choice stating on 1/21/10″attached are 18 residential commercial dwellings obtained from Broward County Property Appraiser that are requesting to be allowed to have discontinuation of service. I cannot provide data pertaining to discontinuation of service for these dwelling as they are exempt from the current code” and on 1/25/10 “attached are 217 multi family (10 units or less)  obtained from Broward County Property Appraiser that are requesting to be allowed to have discontinuation of service. I cannot provide data pertaining to discontinuation of service for these dwelling as they are exempt from the current code”…Only problem is… it seems most on these lists are not aware they made any such request!…OOPS!…

…………………………………….

CANDIDATE MARJORIE EVANS MISSTEPS EVEN MORE ….

What’s up with Candidate Marjorie Evans?…She just keeps making missteps in her CIC- endorsed campaign…She came to the podium and tried to announce  in very first visit to Jarvis Hall ever..(though she has owned her home for 40 years)….leaving after public comments and saying she was sorry she came…She came to MPSC and asked what the committee did…as she insulted them…She came to the next commission meeting and offered up her Broward County connections to the presenter who already said what she was offering was not part of the program…( Why no offers until now?)…Marjorie again left before the meeting was finished…We hear Marjorie has spoken to residents saying she would not be putting any more of her own money in her campaign, despite the pressure from her manager Cristie Furth…Marjorie Evans Commissioner for Pompano Beach?…Her address on her CIC fundraiser invitation states her address is in  Pompano Beach Florida!…Candidate Evans this weekend wanted to know who was responsible for shutting down the “Green Market”…Hey Marjorie, those in the know say it was McIntee! …Now Marjorie has her website up…It was put together by “Skip” who’s on her Broward Childrens’ center board…It says nothing …but she shows a video…containing snapshots Marjorie from long, long  ago and ending with a photo of Marjorie and Rep. Ellyn Bogdanoff!… (Her supporters the Wardlaws will be none too pleased!)….Not one thing on her site has anything that connects her to LBTS!… Again….Would Marjorie Evans vote for Marjorie Evans?…

………………………………..

A FORUM OF DIVERSION?….

Is she really that deceptive?…Is she living in a bubble?…. We hear the Town Manager pushed unilaterally for another “forum” on the special events & street closures on Feb. 11, 2010 at 6 pm in order to create a “diversion” from the election!… Nobody is on board with a 2nd meeting…Not the residents…not the Commissioners….not the businesses…not the Chamber…not the complainants….But TM Colon is not listening!…Why not ?… It’s clear to all ….it’s a parking -barrier issue…NOT a music issue and as such it needs to be set aside for the new commission to deal with!… Besides it being wrong on so many levels…who’s paying for the staff overtime?… And adding insult to injury …Feb. 11th is when the Chamber has their scheduled board of director’s meeting! …OUCH!…

………………………………

NO SUCH THING AS A HARMLESS VOTE!….

For voters who think Commissioner Jim “He’s not a nice guy” Silverstone  is worth a sympathy vote fro a second term…think again!… The question being asked door to door  …”Would you vote for McIntee?”… The answer is a resounding “NO!”…”Then why would you vote for Silverstone who voted with McIntee over the last 4 years?”…The response to that one…”I won’t!”… NICE!…

Here’s The Scoop … The CIC Endorses 3 Candidates One Day Before Time Runs Out ….

January 10, 2010 by Barbara

CHOSEN BY “GOD” ….. AND THE CIC …1/10/2010

Dear Readers…. Jerry Sehl, the Mc-Furth insider …spilled the beans tonight on the purported CIC “bombshell” for Mayor who turns out to be a CIC  “BOMB”!…

Jerry Sehl sent out an e-mail to vote on the candidates from his lauderdalebythesea-fl.biz site …which tries to portray itself as impartial …but with his ties to the Furths …it is anything but!

We heard earlier from a source that a white haired man with an accent spoke at the CIC meeting tonight and called candidates Sasser and Vincent “sandbaggers”…That sounds like Joe alright!…Classic Joe Couriel! (Candidate Chris Vincent has lived and owned here since 2002 and Candidate Scot Sasser has lived and owned  here since 2003…not quite “carpetbaggers”…the term Joe Couriel was looking for.)…

Readers will  remember Joe Couriel … He’s the current Vice Chair of the CIC who was thrown out of Jarvis Hall some time back…He stood outside the hall and yelled “McIntee is god”…(prev. post)…So tonight “god” was handing over his chance at the “throne”, the mayoral seat  to Joe Couriel!… WOW!… But do not think “god” handed it over easily, we hear McIntee was quite upset that he was not running citing his wife’s health and the fact that nobody wanted wanted him to run!…But Joe Couriel?…If you ever saw him in action…he makes McIntee look like milk toast!… Joe Couriel, readers may recall berated and yelled at Commissioner Dodd’s wife after a meeting….(prev. post)…This writer took him to task telling him if he had a problem with the Commissioner he should talk to the Commissioner and not yell at his wife. I asked Joe Couriel how he would feel if someone yelled at his wife. Joe Couriel never apologized for yelling at a woman! …Joe Couriel is a hypocrite, and readers may also recall that it was he who stood before my husband and I a few days after the new majority from the CIC took the election and said he would have to switch sides because  he never liked being with the majority!…OOPS!… Joe Couriel, readers may recall sits on the Board Of Adjustment …(prev. post)…and asked an applicant for a variance on El Mar Drive why he needed such a such a large room..or a chandelier …or a wide stairway!… He was awful!…

We heard earlier in the day that Joe was driving around looking at the Minnet, Sasser, Vincent signs throughout town…Was he looking for more signs from”god”?….He found it via the CIC tonight!…

The CIC also endorsed Marjorie Evans from Bel Air for District one and Commissioner Jim Silverstone from Silver Shores for District 2…

We hear Commissioner Clottey left the meeting at 7:24 pm …Hmmmm….not all that enamored the CIC candidates?….

From Jerry Sehl’s site…tonight …

Mayor-

Roseanne Minnet – incumbant

Joe Couriel

District 1

Marjorie Evans
Scot Sasser

District 2

Jim Silverstone – incumbant
Chris Vincent

Thanks Jerry Sehl….Thanks CIC …and Thank You “god”!…
