Here’s The Scoop … Scene And Heard Around Town …. Big Fish…Big Implosion ….

June 17, 2010 by Barbara

ANOTHER FISHING EXPEDITION  ……

The former Town Manager is going on a “fishing expedition”! ……. Shades of her pal McIntee…We hear former Town Manager Esther Colon has made public records requests for Commissioners old and new! …The timeline we are told is Feb 1st 2010 to June 4th 2010 …which means …McIntee and Silverstone should be getting a call if they haven’t already… to produce along with the current Commissioners e-mails…texts…and any other electronic communication with persons or entities … from both Town and personal e-mail accounts…She is  requesting anything that states…the words..”Manager”…Esther” “Colon”..and “search For Town Manager”… WOW!…

The Commissioners I am sure have nothing to be concerned about…NO HOOKS WILL COME THEIR WAY…. This writer can only surmise that the former Town Manger and her “camp” believe their was some secret effort to get rid of her …and to prevent her from her payout…

There was no secret effort that this writer is aware of…in fact it anything but a secret…it was an election!… Every voter …Commissioner …Staff member and the Town Manager herself knew …if they voted for the new majority …it meant this Town Manager no longer served at their pleasure…That’s why she fought so hard to and became so political in the process…in this writer’s opinion… In fact on the campaign trail…at the meet and greets …the Town Manager was always at the top of the list…and despite the cost of her one year’s severance…most of the voters …declared it was worth it to pay it…just to get rid of her… What was not known was the additional large payouts from the benefits ….(prev. posts)..

This writer can only speak for myself when I state ….nothing to find between me and any Commissioner …that is not already a public record and known to all…

The cost to get such words from all correspondence in the Town will cost big bucks…and I sure hope the cost is required upfront from the former Town Manager …Commissioners should require the same as VM Dodd did this before with former VM McIntee….(prev. posts) and was never paid for exercise…The State Attys. Office dismissed the case in the end …(prev. post)…

What a waste …again, in my opinion… The real questions that need to be answered once again to answer the question of an overpayment to Colon or not…What did the Commission prior to Dec. 28,2001 pass to make a change to Bob Baldwin’s pay and benefits?…Did it apply only to Baldwin or all Town Manager’s going forth?….How is Esther Colon entitled to receive her 7 years of benefits …as a Finance Director..receiving what other Directors of Departments received per the Personnel Policy Manual…or is there some document that allows her to be paid that 7 years as if she was a Town Manager?…. Lastly is the language and what is states for her severance and if that includes her health benefits or not…PERIOD!…

The rest is posturing and continuing on with what got the former Town Manager in trouble all along… She could have made things so different…if she owned up on May 22, 2007 to what she added into her contract…not just what she took out…She could have just fulfilled her contractual obligation to have an annual Performance Review…She could have stopped any questions concerning her qualifications per the Charter by speedily answering public requests on her watch and turning over her resume to answer the valid question…Instead she did what she is doing now…She made it  personal …. Old habits ….. Time to put that “Popeil” back in your pocket….

THE LBTS- VFD …ANOTHER LEADER GETS “PAPERED” AND SHOWN THE DOOR ….

We hear there was a meeting tonight …no details on the outcome as yet…but the lead up to the ongoing implosion …was said to be casting Chief Perkins aside sooner than the July 1st resignation date given to the Town by the VFD just a few days ago after their monthly board meeting…

We hear the Chief is at odds with members …and may have decided to take a few “swipe” as he prepared to go the way of McIntee…The scuttlebutt has been …yet again another leader in the dept. would be facing some paperwork that would make it impossible for the leader to not comply with the department’s decision…For McIntee it was a complaint filed while he was on that fated cruise that stopped the CIC from having heights return to the 2010 municipal election ballots…For Perkins…it is said..it’s that and maybe more…UGH!…

We are also hearing the dynamics have changed in the department…Tomorrows VFD Roster for May …might reveal if this is the case…If so…does that mean the VFD consists of more Associate out- of- Town members than in-town ones?….

A letter sent to the Chief and Commissioners with serious concerns has gone unanswered from former VFD Battalion Chief Patrick Pointu…… The concern for this writer…is not just the “accident waiting to happen” portion of trucks going too fast ..That’s bad enough…but the greater concern is portion concerning the VFD’s insurance …Are the VFD’s men and women safe on the job?… Could there be trouble with the contract with the Town if the insurance is not correctly in place?… Could the Town be liable if it is not?… With McIntee/Perkins out the door … and a new Town Manager and Commission majority in place…it’s time for action…for this second most important letter (see below/ prev. post 10/16/08 scoops/VFD cats.)… from Pointu to be addressed ASAP!….

Subject: VFD Complaint

To Robert Perkins, Fire Chief,

Chief, I have been sending you a few letters and phone calls regarding
some safety issues in your department. You have been ignoring them all
and never ever had the basic courtesy of answering. At one time you even
denied having received some letters despite having given copies to your
staff. I would like to remind you that even if the VFD is a contractor
of the Town, you are providing a government subsidized service and are
subject to public oversight and accountability.

As concerned citizen warnings did not worked, please receive this time
my formal complaint regarding your department.

Today, at around 7:07 pm I have witnessed one of your fire engines
leaving the station Northbound on Bougainvilla drive, using lights and
sirens and traveling at high speed. There were three vehicles at the
stop signs on the corner of Bougainvilla and Washingtonia. The driver of
the apparatus, who by the way was not wearing his seatbelt, crossed the
intersection at a speed that I would estimate far above 35 mph. I know
very well that studies showed that heavier vehicle always seems to
travel faster than they really are. However in this case I had a proper
reference with the others vehicles traveling at the legal speed limit,
and the fire truck was way much faster . A car coming from the West of
Washingtonia started to enter the intersection and hopefully halt in the
middle to let the fire truck fly by as the apparatus wouldn’t have been
able to stop in time. The vehicle in front of the apparatus had just the
time to clear the intersection to avoid the collision.

I was shocked by the total disregard for safety and the lack of proper
defensive driving skills of this driver.

I would request you to disclose the name of the driver and the officer
of this apparatus, their fire and driver qualifications, the date of
their EVOC certification and training provider, recurrent driving
training and any corrective actions that you will ask them to follow to
correct this behavior.

Also I would like you to publicly explain at the next commission meeting
your SOPs regarding driving safety and what are the sanctions for not
following them. If you have trouble remembering it, I’ll suggest that
you watch yourself on tape during previous commission meetings when this
subject was already brought up.

You claimed that many of these behaviors were caused by your former
Deputy Chief. Now that he is not here anymore what is your excuse? Why
the policy decisions that you endorsed in front of the commission are
not followed?

Maybe it is due to your lack of presence and supervision of the
department activities. You claimed being a full time paid Fire Chief.
But you are also claiming being a private investigator and running a
beach concession at the same time. I have received many comments from
citizen who left you voice messages but who you never called back. How
many hours are you spending in the department each week? And what are
your activities while you are at the department? How many fire drills
have you been during the last two years? Let me rephrase that, how many
fire drills have you been in the last two years where you trained
(putting on gear, SCBA, pulling hose, flowing water, …)?

I would like to have a list of your fire qualifications and date of all
formal certifying training that you passed. I would also like to know if
you have met the requirement of 633.35 F.S. within the first year of
your employment as Fire Chief or if you were issued a special
certificate of compliance by the State.

Last but not least, as written in my previous letter, I am concerned
that many of your members may not have a proper pre-employment medical
exam that may void their insurance coverage in case of accident (I am
not talking about health and safety annual medical exam, but
pre-employment that should have happened _before_ being a member). I was
reported that WorkComp already denied a claim for one of your member for
this same reason. Will the department cover the members in this
situation on its own money or will you let these members without any
coverage without even telling them. Should not a volunteer fire
department put the safety and health of their members as a first
priority? Is that not your job as you claimed?

All my comments these last two years were to improve the safety of your
department. I have worked beyond reason to improve this department and I
was proud to be a member and your instructor. Don’t make me ashamed of it.

Patrick Pointu”

SEPTEMBER 30, 2008 ….Pointu Letter….

“9/30/08…8:17 am…

Dear BOD, officers or members,

You hired me as administrator until September 30st to organize the department during the transition period that is ending today. I am not happy with the result, we’ve gone a long way, but I was expecting much more. Our SOPs are not ready, no written training goals or recurrent training requirement are in place., the required ICS training are not completed by our older members., the mandatory (by our contract and NFPA) medical exam is not in place, our by laws were not updated and the current ones are not followed, purchasing procedures are not enforced, decisions from the business meetings are not applied, etc….

I have dealt with a war zone, I have dealt with terrorism as a victim, as a first responder or as a law enforcement officer. I have managed emergency operations with as many as 1 million people or a budget over 3 million dollars. Even if stressful, these operations were a breeze compare to the last six months because I was working with a supporting team of people.

I am tired of the lack of support and the constant fights with Jerry. I’ve tried to take on myself to let it go by looking on all the good sides of the work he was doing. but everyone has its limit. I can’t deal anymore with Jerry’s threats,intimidations,insults and constant disregard for procedures,by laws and chain of command.

Some of you may remember the threat he’s made to me two months ago when he wanted to “shove his fist in my ass” and “punch me in the face” or the statement that he was ” the one who brought back the department” and if it is not going the way _he_ wanted that he will “in one commission meeting bring back the BSO to replace us.”

You will also remember that Jerry went ballistic when Captain Scot Fowler countermands his order regarding a probationary member wanted to attend the beach rescue class. When I confirmed it and informed the Chief about it, he threatened me and said I had no authority to change his order. (For your information, our by-laws Jerry as a rank of Lieutenant) That’s one of the reasons why Scott resigned despite what Jerry is trying to let you believe.

I will pass on the multiple instances when Jerry accused me of lying about some facts that were not going the way he wanted or even accused me many times of not following proper procedure for the medical equipment.

Yesterday, the Chief asked me to organize the demo of the battery operated extrication tools for our officers to be able to choose the one we will buy. The company traveled 300 miles to come for this demo. Jerry just canceled it, refused to obey my order or the Chief’s order. That’s when I decided to resign.

That’s not the first time that Jerry is making department policy by himself or taking decisions on behalf of the members. He fired members without prior approval from the Chief, he decided to give $5,000 cash to the chamber of commerce, he throw out of a meeting people that were invited to attend by the Chief.

As I said before I can’t deal with it anymore. Members are calling Jerry ‘Chief’ and are all believing that he is indeed in charge because nobody is challenging it. I hope that on the fire scene there will not be any confusion and proper chain of command will prevail.

I have reached a point where I can’t deal with Jerry anymore and this fight is damaging for the department. One of us needs to leave and the department can’t afford losing him.

I am sure Cheryl will do a good job to keep the administrative work. Please help her by filling out properly all the forms, including the ones regarding expenses.

You will have to find a certified instructor for the Fire 1 class. Beau is in town for a few weeks, he can probably fill in until you find someone.

It was an honor to be a member of this department for all these past years. I’m leaving sad but that’s the right thing to do for the sake of the department.

Please stay safe out there,

Patrick Pointu”

For a while now the rumbling has been heard in and outside of the department… No one wants to dismantle the VFD…but someone needs to save the VFD from themselves…

Here’s The Scoop… Who’s The Big Chief? ……..

August 4, 2009 by Barbara

BIG CHIEF….LITTLE CHIEF….

Dear Readers…The Vice Mayor/VFD Deputy Chief is out of town…and this writer saw VFD Chief Bob Perkins after the Farewell Party for Chief Scott Gooding last Friday night……He was standing outside of Village Grille talking to two members of the VFD (he acknowledged them during our exchange as such)…I approached the Chief and asked if he was allowed to talk to me with the”boss” out of town. Chief Perkins smiled, laughed and said he was allowed to talk to me with him in town and then said He’s [McIntee] not the boss! I told him that’s sure not how it looks…

I had previously heard from a resident that they had spoken a few days earlier  with the Chief and he had been quite open with them about the problems he was dealing with inside and outside of the department dealing with his Deputy Chief…Chief Perkins said he was trying to hold everything together…In fact I had heard the following account from leaks within the department before hearing the same story from this person… The Chief nearly came to blows with his Deputy Chief over the Chief’s decision concerning the transport of the new ladder truck…All said that an insurance representative was in the VFD offices and McIntee kicked him out of the Chief’s office to let Perkins have it in a rip roaring exchange…..All said that Chief Perkins let him [McIntee] have it back….with one reporting that the Deputy Chief was egging the Chief on so the Deputy Chief/Vice Mayor could charge him with assaulting an elected official..Lately the leaks have been coming out of the VFD of more and more of fights between members…and of seasoned VFD members who were there long before McIntee who are said to be fed up with what they see him doing in the department………We hear that McIntee is making a concerted effort inside the department to get rid of these men and women (so they cannot vote him out). and has been on the blogs doing double duty with this campaign with help from the Mrs & possibly his BFF….. Even so, up to the evening of July 30th and talking to Chief Perkins, this writer just heard it from those who had spoken to the Chief, heard it from leaks or were privy to the aftermath…..

It was not off the record and it was definitely not private….Comm. Dodd and his wife were there for most of it as well as the VFD  members dining outside the outside Village Grille and whomever else was in the vicinity … The Chief said he has been doing all the commercial building inspections as he stated at the podium on the 28th and all he was hearing from the business owners was talk of the March election and voting the Vice Mayor out of office…how much he is hated [McIntee]….Chief Perkins went on to say he [McIntee] will not be voted in as Deputy Chief again in December /January (whichever month they have the VFD election..per the Chief not knowing which month)…He said  the Deputy Chief has done alot of good things for the department but the bad is now outweighing the good…He went on to describe the encounter that he said nearly caused him [Perkins] to throw McIntee through the window!…He said he [Perkins] told McIntee he better never do what he did again…He spoke of the insurance rep’s response to the scene and that of the VFD Executive Secretary Cheryl Louvaris (who was shaking he said ) and even Comm. Silverstone’s sympathetic reaction to the Chief in the aftermath!…Chief Perkins again said it was he who was in charge not Deputy Chief Mcintee …This writer then asked why he did not suspend the Deputy Chief for this ?….Chief Perkins said he had to respect his [McIntee’s] position…I asked if he meant his position as Commissioner…and he said as Deputy Chief…(HUH?)… I told him that McIntee should not even be Deputy Chief and said “you shouldn’t have voted for him”…The Chief got a little perturbed and said I did not know how he voted…I said he shouldn’t have allowed the VFD to vote for him [McIntee] due to the VFD by-laws not allowing officers to be elected officials…Chief Perkins said they changed the by-laws to allow for officers not compensated…(This writer has been informed that ANY change in the VFD by-laws would have to come to the Commission to approve per the contract or the contract would be invalid and that has not occurred…oops!)…I asked the Chief if he realized that if he got rid of the Deputy Chief he would be a hero in this town…He laughed and said he was told he could be Mayor…I laughed and said “You could be king!”…I also asked him what he was afraid of?..He said he was not afraid…imploring me to just hold on….to just be patient…I told him I could not be patient……because I believe the Deputy Chief is harming the VFD ….I said  the townspeople are behind the VFD just not McIntee….and that any threats of the Commission getting rid of them if he is out…will not happen!….(It is said McIntee has repeatedly told VFD members if he goes the VFD goes and he will see to it from the dais)…We hear McIntee has been going crazy looking for the increasing leaks….. This writer has heard all the leaks…but this is not a leak…this is the Chief of the VFD ….

It is quite perplexing though, that on the very same day of this exchange with the Chief, he is photographed  on the back page of the Mc-Furth Times in an ongoing VFD Booster Fund paid ad that read…”I must take this opportunity to acknowledge the tremendous work  my Deputy Chief, Jerry McIntee has done to advance the Department to the present level we are at.”…(Did he know what text would be used by his photo?)……

I know that this post will bring the out the worst for the Chief to deal with…once the Deputy Chief reads it…and for that I am truly sorry…but…I am a resident and taxpayer and I want the  Chief of my fire department to act on what is right…to stand up to the Deputy Chief ….to follow the by-laws  concerning who may be an officer …and especially to suspend any member that is  insubordinate…proving who is in charge…after all the Chief told me “I do not lie”…and I believe him….because the account of the incident never changed no matter who was telling it…and today when I picked up my public records request at the VFD and asked the Executive Secretary where the Chief’s office was she pointed to my right…I looked inside to see his desk and then told her he had told me about “nearly throwing the Deputy Chief through the window”…and judging from her reaction…she confirmed it…I said he [Perkins] said she was shaking afterward…she laughed nervously…and I said “I don’t expect you to comment.”…She said “Have a nice day.”…and I told her to do the same…

One person asked me if this could be a “setup” …I cannot see how it could be…it came from too many sources…and from the Chief himself….The Chief said he is not a liar…and if he stands at the podium and denies what was said…and/or the incident…a full investigation is required…for that would mean the Chief of the VFD slandered the Vice Mayor/Deputy Chief of LBTS…and it would be he who needs to be suspended…

What happens now…we will finally see who is the Big Chief of the VFD……..

more to come…

Here’s The Scoop… Medals For The “Gang Of 3” ……..

August 2, 2009 by Barbara

Dear Readers….this writer read and re-read  what the “Gang of 3” chose to write about in their CIC/VFD Supported Furth Times newspaper produced at Town Hall East on El Mar…If there is any doubt as to why rational, competent residents and voters have said “enough is enough” with these elected officials and their backers…this edition of the Mc-Furth Times and especially the Commissioner’s columns can leave no doubt…it is time to throw the bums out!…

COMMISSIONER CLOTTEY….

Commissioner Clottey is a bigger disappointment than either of the Broom Boys….that’s the word around town especially from the women voters…We thought she was independent, highly educated and would be an asset up there in dealing with the finances of the town as well as the irrational behavior she herself witnessed from the Vice Mayor and the Furths as a candidate…But she CHOSE…to be besotted by Marc Furth and be led by the nose from those who pointed their fingers at her and told her she better not follow suit and ask for a sabbatical from the CIC  after Comm. Dodd did the night her was “tarred and feathered”…even though it was she who 1st broached the subject at current CIC Chair and BTSTimes Editors Bob and Adrienne  Roberts ….(both wrote in this edition of the paper)…Her irrational behavior on the dais began with her treatment of Michael Arker’s attorney…proceeding to her BSO “fear of calling the police” statements…..Off the dais she had some major changes in her life..leaving Barry University to teach online from home…She became more isolated ( in this writer’s opinion) and this writer was increasingly concerned with some of her calls stating (before her BSO actions on the dais) that she had been out in the middle of the night with a “soaker hose” and had observed suspicious action going on in her neighborhood…she though there was “drug deal going on”…This writer was astonished…first that she would be out doing what she was doing at that time and second that if she was correct in her observation she would remain outside at that hour! I told her she was a Commissioner and to contact the BSO…I followed up on her doing just that and a few days later she said she did …she was not a happy camper …she relayed that the Chief responded “in that neighborhood it’s probably prostitution”…I laughed..and said “Is that better?”…She said he might not get back to her if some undercover operation was going on….Sometime later she called me and was quite undone…it was in the afternoon and she had observed the BSO stop 2 people walking up her street with suitcases and they [BSO] were asking the people who they were…she said “what if that was me”…”They can’t be stopping people.”…My response…”You can’t have it both ways, first you didn’t think they [BSO] was doing enough and now you think they’re doing too much.”…I also added that  in a past election the Vice Mayor who lives in Bel Air as well made it known he did not like people walking in the area without a reason….So you can imagine my reaction to her dais BSO statements…I was dumbfounded and felt she had an ax to grind…Around that time this professional accomplished woman…a single mother who raised an accomplished professional daughter …also startled me with yet another call about her problems with her front yard and Marc Furth…She said she had hired a man to take care of the lawn that was dug up after the sewer installation…the man did a bad job…Comm. Clottey  said she called Marc Furth to help her deal with him (HUH?)…Birute said Marc came over and told the man he better do the job right or he [Marc Furth] would write about him in his paper…(last I heard the man was not going to be threatened)…..Birute was beside herself that Marc had made that statement…I asked her what in the world she needed Marc for to deal with her house?….This readers, is the decline I have witnessed…Against my better judgment I held on to maintain a relationship hoping that our conversations would give her someone to “bounce” the Mc-Furth directives off  and help her to do as she did throughout the campaign …to find her own voice…to actually hear what she was going to say out loud …and know how truly off the wall it usually was…It lasted for a while…I would usually take a little time and say I’ll get over it when she spouted some “Furthisms”……but then as she took to the podium and it was all  Furth directives coming  from her mouth …I finally told her “I’m not getting over it this time”…and walked away from any further communications…(sadly)…..culminating in my going to the dais after the special meeting for Scott Gooding in which I  told her I had wasted 2 years of my life on her and she should resign. I still think she should!…

Now in her column she has further shown something is “terriably” (see below for the misssp.) wrong…She again perpetuates her claim that she “tried and failed to put a motion on the floor” at the Scott Gooding meeting…The tape shows that never happened!…She says Comm. Dodd’s motion was “one sided and should have been two sided”…(HUH?)…He was asking for a vote to direct the Manager to reinstate the Chief!…And then she goes really goes through the looking glass with the following…” If there is to be a showdown between A reassigned police chief and THE town manager,I WILL CHOOSE THE TOWN MANAGER. Yes, Chief Gooding was a nice guy, A FREQUENT PARTICIPANT AT THE ANGLIN SQUARE SCENE”…(seriously besmirching connotation made ) “and a COMPETENT police officer”…(Chief Scott Gooding’s academic and professional accomplishments were brought forward by the BSO Colonel at the June 30th meeting…and proved him to be much more than just a “competent police office”. Again, the Comm. besmirches the Chief)..”but, BSO can EASILY assign us another COMPETENT police chief”…(The incompetent Clueless Comm. is tone deaf to her constituents!)…”Finding a competent town manager with Esther Colon’s financial expertise and savvy is an entirely different story”…(Piece of cake, Comm…Piece of cake!)…Comm. Clottey then spouts the financial  acumen of TM Colon…being “in the black”…blah..blah..blah…and the rest of the same old tired rhetoric…followed by these statements further showing who is influencing her with revisionist history that she herself did not research…(This writer KNOWS Comm. Clottey had no prior intimate knowledge of the previous Town Manager and Ms. Colon was brought into LBTS  by that TM and worked side by side with him as Finance Director and Asst. TM…so she would have been complicit in any inferior management of the town…oops! )” I might end with a question. In these hard economic times, would you prefer to have a hard nosed BUT FAIR competent town manager with a proven track record”… (finance and staff)..” Or do you prefer to have someone who is always nice to your face, allows the staff to get their work done when they get around to it and then socks it to the taxpayer, financially?”…(Give me a break!)…” Compare the two most recent town managers and decide for yourself which one had the the best interest of the town at heart.”…

Comm. Clottey told this writer she was a professor and marketing was her field…unfortunately she has failed (in this writer’s opinion) …as an online teacher reviewed  in 2003 (see below)…And as a professor witnessed by this writer during the campaign when students came to meet candidate Dodd and to do a class project …(ala Sandra Booth’s 2 successful AI projects) that failed to get off the ground… The students came…Candidate Clottey did not assemble any materials for them (this writer did) …there was no interaction observed with the students throughout the get together…and it never moved beyond the initial meeting…..She has failed as a Commissioner in the first year and a half of her 4 year term…Time to step down Comm…time to step down…for the sake of the town…..and let us voters find a COMPETENT COMMISSIONER who has a CLUE!….

COMMISSIONER SILVERSTONE….

Ah, Um,  Jimmy..Jimmy…Jimmy… You have written the perfect FREUDIAN STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS about you and your BFF McIntee…This writer thought it was magnificent…(KUDOS)…because you have truly stuck it to your BROOM BOY mentor..BIG TIME…(any doubt who it could be about could  be revealed if your pal tries for a second term)……Comm. Silverstone wrote…”If a child cheats in school on a test and gets away with it, the other students, if they know they have two choices. They can tell on the cheater or they can also cheat.”…(In this writer’s opinion)…Jimmy…look in the mirror!…The probable cause charges found from the elections and ethics commission for you and your BFF McIntee…Voting McIntee in as Dep. Chief even though you know your VFD by-laws do not allow it…standing by as McIntee went after VFD Battalion Chief Pointu..VFD Captain Scot Fowler …VFD Captain Joe Padden…and recently the VFD Chief Perkins (more on this to come) ….watching and then joining in …so much so …that all those who used to say “Jimmy’s a nice guy”… want you out!….You just gotta love this part it fits the VM to a “T” (T for “TIM” )…Jimmy talks of “Tim”…the “Cheater in his class”…who was the “class clown” (HMMM) “thought he [“Tim”] was smarter than the “rest”….(“rest”, Jimmy?) (HMMM)..”So smart in fact he didn’t need to study all that much”…(VM does not open his backup …we hear…until he’s on the dais)…he goes on…”Once it was known “Tim” was cheating and because he was bigger then most of us ” …(HMMM)…” many of the students” started to cheat to keep their grades up.”…(“many of the students”, Jimmy?.)…” If “they” told ON “Tim”, the FEAR was they (“they “Jimmy?) were going to be CAST ASIDE and get BEAT UP after school.”…(HMMMM…the BULLY)…the final salvo…intentional or not?…” In the end “many of the students” (“many of the students”, Jimmy?) became very good at cheating and NOT VERY GOOD AT KNOWING THE SUBJECT’…(HMMM..In a NUTshell …in a NUTshell)…Thanks Broom Boy…”2-Hats” off for your insight…the “Healer” should be proud …you have had a epiphany…and most likely did not even know it…HMMM…

VICE MAYOR MCINTEE

Vice Mayor McIntee chose to deflect…deflect (no mirror, VM?) his bad behavior on the dais…his electioneering on the dais…his bullying on the dais…his VFD ad-nauseum rhetoric on the dais…his wheeling and dealing on the dais…his ineptness on the dais with the facts…the backup and the gavel…by going after the Mayor…and those audience members who not afraid to speak up…get used to it Vice Mayor….get used to it!….

The perfect medal to bestow……..
