Here’s The Scoop … Scene And Heard Around Town …

November 18, 2009 by Barbara

THERE’S A NEW ONE …

Dear Readers … Did ya hear?…There’s a new  playbook in town…It’s the one for new candidates Chris Vincent  from Silver Shores and Scot Sasser from Terra Mar who are in this 2010 race for  Silverstone and McIntee’s commission seats for the next 4 years…..They will run along with Mayor Minnet in her re-election bid for 2 more years as Mayor…It’s a brand new “playbook”for these three and it’s full of pages for playing by the with rules….imagine that!… Ahhhh…

We hear the CIC President and a close friend are following along in the Mc-Furth -CIC tradition of the last 2 years…and ignoring the “will of the people”…In this case they are ignoring the will of the Surf and Yacht Club members who, it is said made it clear they did not want the CIC fundraiser or any more CIC meetings at their private club. We Hear the President of the CIC added the name of his buddy and is going forward anyway…Sort of tells you the sad state of affairs for this once revered organization…disorganized and dwindling…with invitations on short notice to “members” not paid up…for a “fundraiser” for candidates not declared…in a club that asked they not have it there!…OUCH!… Just more fodder for Mc-Furth Finale with 4 months to go!…

We also hear the CIC President’s close friend’s wife made her own appearance at the podium 2 times to complain about an extension for a developer that did not play by the rules…Hmmm…playing by the rules for some?….

So what will happen in December in the VFD?…We are hearing all sorts of scenarios…Kind of funny after two members of the VFD came up at public comments and told residents they were tired of being “spit on” or taking grief over the VFD because of “Jerry and Jimmy”…That “Jerry and Jimmy” are not the VFD!… Any By-laws in place covering the VFD coming to the podium?… We hear the scuttlebutt…at fire scenes…and Mc-mandatory set-ups for all VFD members such as the Halloween event…(CIC- fundraisers?) ..have brought forth “wait until December”…and McIntee will NOT be voted in as an officer!.. There is a jockeying for positions…VFD Chief and VFD Deputy Chief…Does McIntee want the “Little Chief” Perkins out due to “talking too much”…. out of earshot?… Is there somebody lined up by McIntee to replace Bob Perkins…such as an old McIntee cow-“towing” VFD  pal…who we hear, rides around on the  VFD-ATV’s snapping pictures while on duty… Those pics sound like a  big time embarrassment for the department if the reports are true and the photos are ever revealed … We hear McIntee himself is considering a run for Chief!…Now that would be the ultimate “flippin’ the bird” to the VFD By-laws that still  have not been updated to allow a VFD  officer to be also be an elected official, according to the Town…

Will the VFD December election be the big tip-off to the March 2010 Municipal election results?… If the VFD members succeed and oust McIntee to become a VFD member only… which is the overwhelming hope of all those  who live and play by the rules…we the residents and voters will then know for sure that  “Jerry and Jimmy” are  NOT the VFD!….Now that would be a new “playbook”!…

What happened to the BTSTimes…many said the 3 week date was last Friday…We hear their usual group of contributors were actively looking for their submissions in print all around town last week and came up empty……Will it show up 1 week late?…Bad timing ..it would seem…unless it is to announce their candidates 1 day prior to asking for CIC donations….We shall see….or not!…

more to come….
