DUCK TAPE …. WHEN THE QUACKS GET OUT OF CONTROL

“Ducks are sometimes confused with several types of unrelated water birds with similar forms, such as loons ”

Dear Readers … according to Vice Mayor McIntee, it’s open season on “anonymous” letters….. Vice Mayor McIntee decided to go after the Mayor on Dec. 8, 2009…. 43 years  earlier almost to the day, December 7, 1966…”Open season” came with an “anonymous” letter …  about a Probationary Patrolman …..  Is it for real?……That will be for others to decide just as the Vice Mayor asked  LBTS residents to decide about the Mayor’s occupation according to the incorporation documents he presented on the dais last Tuesday and accusations he again made in his Commissioner Comments in the new Mc-Furth BTSTimes …..

Now remember ….”You don’t have to read them”… “It’s your choice” … That’s what VM McIntee instructed the Commission at last Tuesday evening’s meeting ….. as he ended his 3rd or 4th “bite of the apple” for his new business item 16c. (prev. post)… in his all-out  effort to discredit the Mayor…along with his pals Commissioner “Not a nice guy” Silverstone  and Commissioner “Clueless” Clottey…

The readers of this post have the same choice…to read or not to read….

This writer will also not include names in the anonymous letter… and will use an alias that seems to fit the “bill”…pun intended!…

Letter #1 ….

Date 12/7/66

“To G.O.G.

Commissioner Of Police

From M.U.D.

Inspector

Subject: Probationary Patrolman Quack Quack

Sir:

Attached is a probationary evaluation report,  with accompanying explanatory P-84, from Captain K.X., Commanding Officer of the Police Academy, on Patrolman Quack Quack

This is the first time that any probationary patrolman has been so poorly rated, and, in the interest of the Department and of the public, that his actions be most carefully scrutinized and supervised.

To this end, we respectfully recommend that the Commanding Officer of the unit to which he is assigned be made aware of Patrolman Quack’s performance in the Academy.

We further recommend that a variance be made in the customary evaluation procedure, and that his new commanding officer be required to submit weekly or bi-weekly reports on the officer’s progress.

If a radical change is not noted in his attitude and behavior, we recommend that a special panel of Superior Officers be convened at the end of his first three month’s probationary period, to make recommendations as to his continuing service in the department.

Since he received his permanent appointment on October 27, 1966, his first three months of his probationary period will terminate on January 27, 1967.

Respectfully,

M.U.D.

Inspector”

Letter #2

Date 12/7/66

” To G.O.G.

Commissioner of Police

From K.K.X.

Captain, Police Academy

Subject; Unsatisfactory Evaluation of Patrolman Quack Quack

ATTENTION: Inspector M.U.D. Division of Administration

Sir:

The evaluation of probationer (P.344) Patrolman Quack Quack. is marked unsatisfactory, the following is submitted to explain why,

This most general evaluation of Patrolman Quack, which rates him unsatisfactory is that throughout the three month recruit course, he has proven to be temperamentally unsuited for police work.

Patrolman Quack has demonstrated a basic immaturity, as demonstrated by the following: (1) Playing with his handcuffs during lectures given by the F.B.I.  (2) Constantly stating to the lecturers that have just said “___” when in fact only Mr.Quack heard this statement. (3) When it was called to Patrolman Quack’s attention, that while in uniform he went through a stop sign, he replied “that is not too bad.” (4) Patrolman Quack, stated in his personal history sheet that he is a “fire buff”. Since he has been in class, we have had four reports of his appearing at fire scenes while off duty. (5) He lost his police folder after a few days in class. (6) His personal car was tagged for illegal parking, he then walked into Precinct #4 and threw the tag on the desk and asked” how do you fix this?” (7) He has officially reported sick twice since being appointed. (8) When class notebooks were inspected Patrolman Quack’s was by far the worst, and he did not even submit the free notebook given to him by the State of P.A. although the recruits were all instructed this was the official notebook to be used. (9) When various minor violations of the rules have been brought to Patrolman Quack’s attention, his attitude has been disrespectful, especially to Det. Sgt. Hptt. (10) Rumors concerning Patrolman Quack, have come to the attention of the academy, but can not be verified, however, it certainly proves that already, Patrolman Quack’s reputation has preceded him throughout the department. (11) He is belligerent in class, attempts to correct the instructor in a loud and insulate manner.

Respectfully K.K.X.

Captain”

Here’s The Scoop …FLASHBACK! … Reprimand The Mayor … Cuckoo Comes A- Calling …Yet Again …

November 23, 2009 by Barbara

“THIS IS NOT A JOKE, MAYOR ” …Comm. Birute Clottey 11/10/09

Dear Readers … Flashback time on the dais…circa 2006-07…. “Been there, done that” …The “writing’s on the web” for the current majority…4 months away from extinction..It is clear to those who participated in the previous campaigns emanating out of Town Hall East (aka Blue Seas Courtyard/Furth BTSTimes Hdqtrs) …..This time aiming for the Mayor , this writer …and anyone else in their sights…that will play a role in their demise… That “role” …getting out the vote to replace them!…

At the Nov. 10, 2009 meeting during the Vice Mayor’s long, long, long winded ( aren’t they all?)…Commissioner Comments…(time to run the dais clock for all in the hall and at home to see his long winded politicking minutes tick away)..McIntee had just begun on one of his well known “bluffs”…The one that involves total “recall” of buddy, buddy conversations to disparage someone while offering himself “cover”  because he always makes sure his fellow conversationalist is absent so as to not contradict the exchange or counter that it even took place at all!…

At this point in McIntee’s comments he was droning on about several exchanges ( 4 or 5) he claims to have had with the State Attorney, to state he informed the Atty. that  Mr Brandt had it in for him [VM] because Mr Brandt was terminated from the VFD …. ( a questionable termination, due to a loss of Mr Brandt’s father ) …The Mayor implored the Vice Mayor to stop his distasteful diatribe…and the Vice Mayor answered her back  “Is it any different than what they do to me?”….. (Flashback!) …Mr Brandt responded from the audience that he was not an elected official…The Vice Mayor responded to his constituent, Mr Brandt…”Oh, ok, but you can yell out. You can yell out!…(Flashback!)…Applause drowned out the Vice Mayor as he made this response…(Flashback!)…. and that’s when “Clueless” Clottey jumped in… The same Birute Clottey who has spent the past month going to the opponents of the Vice Mayor and his BFF Silverstone telling them to run …( she is being coached to do so from her pals at Town Hall East and/or she is hedging her position once she is in the minority after March 9th …) …Comm. Clottey ” Ah, excuse me Madam Mayor, you’re job is to control the meeting, . Please do so.”… There was one clap from the audience…from CIC Vice Chair Joe Couriel (the same Joe Couriel that said outside Jarvis Hall “McIntee is God!”) …(Flashback!)… The Mayor responded to Mr. Couriel’s clap with her own clap…and Comm Clottey was angry…” Madam Mayor, I’m asking for you to control the meeting and there are people that are speaking back and you are supposed to give them a warning!”……The Mayor responded “I give everyone in the audience including this commission a warning.”…..Clottey was furious “This is not a joke Mayor. This is not a joke!”… (Flashback!)…BFF Jim Silvestone (He is NOT a nice guy!) dove in “I make a motion to reprimand the Mayor!” … (Flashback!) …The audience booed and groaned…and then laughed at Silverstone and Clottey for the ridiculous orchestrated motion… (Flashback!) …The Mayor tried to calm the room by saying “Let’s all take a deep breath.”…But that was not part of the Mc-Furth plan…The Vice Mayor said “No, I second that!”… (Flashback!) …The Mayor knowing full well there was no way to stop this train-wreck said “Fine, let’s reprimand the Mayor. That’s fine, there’s a motion”… The roll was called (seems the voting board has been out of order since the Halloween event…Hmmm)… The vote was as expected 3-2 Silverstone, Clottey, McIntee vote yes to the reprimand …Mayor and Comm. Dodd vote no…(Flashback!) …The Mayor said “Ok, now that I’m reprimanded what would you like to do?”… The Vice Mayor jumped in to say “I think it’s certainly symbolic Mayor.But it’s my time to talk”… (Flashback!) …This was the only honest thing that came out of McIntee’s mouth during his comments!… He continued disparaging his constituent and eagerly embellished any”relationship” he has with the State Atty. ..(Can the State Atty. really be so cozy with a Vice Mayor  with McIntees’ probable cause track record?)…

Now ain’t funny that this new “Turkey” ( 1 week late) edition of the poorly distributed (lack of funds?) Mc-Furth paper has included from Clottey, a story about a 6th grade substitute teacher (Moe McIntee-light) .. and has Furth-er tried to pull the wool over the eyes of those with short memories…or new to the LBTS political arena in dishing out cries of lack of decorum on the dais and in the hall …(Flashback!) … Perhaps it’s time for the Professor to  pull out the 2006-2007 commission videos ( current CIC Pres/ BTST Editor Bob Roberts regularly distributed them)…take a seat, get a bucket of popcorn…and with her newly reconstituted “mentor”…purported “fast food eating buddy” and her announced nominee for the Hillsboro Inlet, “Mr Oliver Parker” (Former Mayor Parker…he of the failed CIC-led recall- [see below]…Flashback!)… watch as each video exposes the “decorum” from those seated on the CIC- side of Jarvis Hall…and the over-the-top heated exchanges on the dais between the BFF “Broom Boys” McIntee and Silverstone  vs. “Mr. Olivier” … (Flashback!)…

Comm. Clottey wrote ” In my opinion, rolling once eye’s, smirking, changing one’s voice to play supporting, and make fun of others is a rather strange route toward maintaining respect and fairness. Obviously others have different opinions.”… Did she run this one by “Mr. Oliver?”……. This from “nails on a chalkboard” Clottey, the “besotted” Town commissioner who has regularly embarrassed and offended so many of her constituents with her off the Marc (pun intended) behavior toward the BSO, businesses, attorneys and no surprise…especially to this writer  …. the Mayor…. the recipient of this oddly versed opinion piece!… She has had it in for the Mayor since running as a candidate …. (catfight!)……(Flashback!)…

The Mc-Furths… continued their politically motivated “reprimand” of the Mayor in their Moe McIntee (Truth Deflector/#1 suspect for the 11/11/09 anonymous letter writer? prev. post) “Town Tidbits”… (Flashback!)….. The same Moe McIntee who suddenly now has glowing words of appreciation for former foe-Mayor Oliver Parker…the new “Oracle” of the Mc-Furth-BTSTimes Gang!… Talk about “Old Guard”…Talk about “Cuckoo For Coconuts”….Talk about  a 2006 FLASHBACK!….When you finish the videos, Commissioner… you may want to proceed to Google….

(With Commentary )….full text link w/out below…

“Cuckoo for Coconuts
Lauderdale-by-the-Sea may lose its soul over a political firefight.

By Bob Norman
Published on December 21, 2006

“Mayor Oliver Parker knows he’s the most unpopular person in his own town.”

(VM McIntee  should know he’s the most unpopular person in his town.)

“A hundred-and-fifty years ago there probably would have been tar and feathers involved. Pitchforks and a greased rail would have likely also come into play.’

(Ditto -VM!)

“Looked at that way, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea Mayor Oliver Parker can be thankful. He’s only facing a recall petition, an endless stream of insults, and the undying ire of a large percentage of his constituency.”

(Ditto-VM!)

“Parker, who has been mayor of the town since 1998, may very well be the most reviled politician in Broward County right now, per capita. And if you listen to him, the conflict boils down to a couple of time-honored staples of subtropical life, coconuts and bared breasts.”

Those are the first things that the mayor brings up when asked about the issue that is ripping his quaint and unique beach burg apart: The hostile takeover of the town’s fire services by the Broward Sheriff’s Office.”

(STILL-Ditto!….The McIntee -Furth 2010 re-election playbook)

“The longstanding Volunteer Fire Department was ousted from the town after BSO terminated its contract in November. Parker made the motion and cast the deciding vote to kill the 60-member VFD. The sheriff’s office then locked the volunteers out of the town firehouse and commandeered their fire trucks and equipment.”

(Ah, “Mr Oliver”….Clottey’s nominee for the Hillsboro Inlet)….

“The town’s surrender to empire-building Sheriff Ken Jenne enraged many of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea’s most civic-minded residents. Think Wal-Mart swallowing Mayberry. Darth Vader trumping Luke Skywalker. To them, the move was nothing less than a Gestapo tactic and another sign of democracy’s demise in their hyphenated town of 7,000 people.”

(Playbook 2010…to keep in power)

“At last week’s city commission meeting, several citizens lined up to berate the mayor. It’s a regular occurrence these days. And a newly formed Recall Oliver Parker Committee has already procured more than 700 signatures, which, if their petition stands, is enough to force a recall vote on Parker next year.”

(Nah,according to the “revisionist” CIC history…the current podium participants are something new to Jarvis Hall!)

“These people are our family; they help get us through hurricanes,” five-year resident Lisa Maxwell told the mayor last week, outrage dripping from her voice. “Why did you turn away from your history?”

Calling Lisa Maxwell, will there be enough of you to believe it is 2006 again?…Hmmm… how about blacktopping your road?…Free Kool-aid at the door!)

“It’s a good question, one that I posed to Parker during a phone interview last week. That’s when he told me about breasts and coconuts.”

“First off, I’m a supporter of the Volunteer Fire Department, always have been and always will be,” said the 55-year-old Republican who missed being elected to the Florida Legislature in 2004 by a mere 12 votes. “But I believe the volunteer fire department has to be professionally trained. Back in January, the department elected a chief and deputy chief who had no business being chief and deputy chief. They had no qualifications whatsoever.”

(New VFD…leadership problem…FLASHBACK!)…

“I’ll give you an example. We had an incident last October where a firefighter was cooking hamburgers for rescue workers right after Hurricane Wilma. A young lady comes up to the firefighter who was doing the cooking and says, ‘May I have a hamburger?’ He tells her she has to take her shirt off and show everybody her boobs. And she does it.”

“The horror. The woman did, indeed, flash her assets to at least some of the hungry volunteers. But the firefighter/cook in question, none other than Deputy Fire Chief Jerry McIntee, who is also a city commissioner, says he didn’t ask the woman to do it.”

“You drive down the beach and women are flashing the fire truck — c’mon, it’s South Florida,” says the married McIntee, who retired to Florida after a career as a police officer and arson investigator in Buffalo. “I didn’t see any boobs. She had a halter top and a throw thing on and she took it off and I told her to put her clothes back on. Apparently, she’s about 35 years old and she’s an exhibitionist-type person.”

(Yep, he was still using the “career cop” crap)….

“The real bottom line is that this guy [Parker] has turned into an ogre. He has the town furious at him.”

(The real bottom line is that this guy [McIntee] has turned into a bully. He has the town furious at him)

“The mayor says he’s just protecting the town, even if it hates him for it. He points to the fact that the volunteers were taking coconuts — which could become dangerous in hurricanes — down from trees as part of a paid training exercise.”

(The Vice Mayor says “He’s” protecting the town….Hmmm… Flashback!)

“Parker is most angry that they were taking the coconuts from some of their own yards.”

“That’s misappropriation of funds, embezzlement, and theft,” Parker says. “They could have done it on town trees and there would be no problem, but instead they decided to provide a special benefit to private citizens.”

(No oversight…thanks to the Town Manager…so any continuation …”hands off”…until after March 2010)

“Again, McIntee scoffs.”

(Ditto!)

“We have taken coconuts out of all sorts of people’s trees,” he says. “If it happens to be a volunteer’s house, well that’s what we do. If an old lady asks us to take their coconuts down, we’ll be there. Before the hurricane, an old lady called and said she needed help with her shutters. We had 12 guys over there to board up her house. We did this 30 or 40 times.”

“In other words, it’s typical small town stuff, which is the way the overwhelming majority of the people seem to like it. The volunteers respond to a pet dog stuck in a canal. BSO doesn’t. The volunteers cook burgers for hurricane victims and help them with their shutters. BSO doesn’t.”

(Get ready…to take out VFD and put in LBTS Police Dept…if the current majority wins)

“And the VFD has been around for a half-century without many complaints. It wasn’t until 2000 that the trouble began.
That year, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, which lies just north of Fort Lauderdale, annexed a piece of beach to its north, nearly doubling its population. “New Town,” as it’s commonly called, had none of the charm of traditional Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, which is now known as, you guessed it, “Old Town.”

(2010 Mc-Furth playbook -Flashback!)

“New Town has sterile and imposing condos lining the beach. Old Town has little old motels with names like “High Noon” and “Sea Spray” and “A Little Inn By The Sea.”

(2010 Mc-Furth playbook- Flashback!)

“New Town has a 15-story height limit, Old Town’s is a mere three. And New Town had massive contractor BSO as its fire service provider, while Old Town had just the little VFD.”

(2010 Mc-Furth playbook- Flashback!)

“The cost difference was jarring — at first, BSO was charging New Town residents five times what the VFD residents were paying for fire protection. And initially Parker vowed not to let BSO take over Old Town.”

(2010 Mc-Furth playbook- Flashback!)

“But Sheriff Ken Jenne has been a master at usurping the towns of Broward County. That’s a given — and Parker eventually gave in. In 2004, he helped the five-member commission pass a resolution to put BSO in command of the VFD. Of the $2 million contract for fire service paid to the sheriff’s office, it subcontracted the VFD for about $500,000.”

(2010 Mc-Furth playbook- Flashback!…except now the VFD costs close to a million…with a $2 million dollar crappy motel and a$3 million dollar “fire garage that sleeps firefighter”…if the majority stays)….

“By that time, the two agencies were already involved in a bitter turf war. And there was growing consternation about it in the town, which overwhelmingly supports the volunteers. Parker also was gaining political enmity for his growing commiseration with developers. The mayor isn’t shy about the fact that he wants to tear down the old motels and redevelop the town with condo and hotel projects.”

(2010 Mc-Furth playbook- Flashback!… But this is “Mr Oliver” the CIC- Mc-Furth “Oracle” of heights…Hmmmm…..)

“So the town, led by a small newspaper called By The Sea Times, turned on the mayor. In March, VFD leaders McIntee and James Silverstone ran for the commission against two incumbents who favored BSO, Ed Kennedy and David Wessels. The volunteers crushed the competition, gained two seats on the commission, and stunned Parker and the old guard.”

(2010 Mc-Furth playbook- Flashback!….But this is “Mr. Oliver the man quoted in the new Furth owned BTSTimes!…Hmmm…)

“In that same election, the town voted on a referendum to impose term limits. The measure, aimed squarely at putting Parker out of office, was passed by a resounding 74 percent of the vote.”

(2010 Mc-Furth playbook- Flashback!)

“The mayor responded by making Sheriff Jenne — who has been hobbled by scandal himself — the grand master of the town’s July 4 parade this year.”

( This year’s 2009 CIC Citizens of the Year…BTSTimes Publisher /Editor & owners Marc & Cristie Furth)….

“And he still controlled a three-vote bloc majority — with commissioners John Yanni (who happens to be employed by BSO) and Chuck Clark. It was that trio that ousted the VFD in November.”

(a three-vote bloc majority- with commissioners Silverstone (who happens to be a VFD member), McIntee (who happens to be a VFD member), and Birute Clottey. It is the trio that will oust the BSO Police if the two are re-elected in March)

“The vote came after BSO terminated its contract with the volunteers, saying they weren’t safe, and backing it up with a list of minor complaints.”

(2010 Mc-Furth playbook- Flashback!…. longtime VFD members who have left due to McIntee have repeated these complaints…due to substandard training and leadership)

“What BSO did was dump the volunteers and get a bonus of three quarters of a million dollars in equipment that was bought by Lauderdale-by-the-Sea,” McIntee says. “[The BSO fire department] has no home so they try to steal other people’s homes to exist. They will do anything they can to control what they can.”

(2010 Mc-Furth playbook- Flashback!…. McIntee got a 2 million dollar crappy motel…trucks…toys…He will do anything he can to control what he can.)

“Because VFD can serve the town for about half the cost of BSO, it’s commonly believed that Parker has struck up an unholy alliance with Jenne. “There is no reasonable justifiable reason to terminate the volunteers the way they did,” says Silverstone, the volunteer fire chief and new city commissioner. “Terminating the contract and kicking us out of our own station and taking our equipment, they didn’t need to do that. There must be some backroom politics going on here.”

(2010 Mc-Furth playbook- Flashback!…. Silverstone ….who spent 2 years insisting the Town Manager’s contract was the same as the former Town Manager….who voted against VFD by-laws for McIntee to be Dep. Chief…Who is NOT a nice guy!)

“Parker admits he’s become friends with Jenne, but says they aren’t close and he has cut no deal with the sheriff.”

(Parker admits he’s become friends with Clottey, McIntee, but say they aren’t close and he has cut no deal with the “gang”?)

“The sheriff can’t afford to pay me enough to make it worth my while,” says Parker, a multimillionaire who pumped about $350,000 of his own money into his losing 2004 state house race.”

(Hmmmm…..)

“He insists he’s just looking out for the town — even if it hates him for it.”

(2006-Parker/2009 McIntee)…

“We don’t need the fire version of the keystone cops,” he explains. “They’re incompetent, they’re dysfunctional, and, in my opinion, they are corrupt. And they refuse to discipline themselves. Put it in plain English, they refuse to accept civilian control.”

(2009….the VFD leadership “shoe” still fits)

“The volunteers are still functioning, if barely. They operate out of an office and have one fire truck left (which the department paid for rather than the city).”

(The volunteers have a 5 year contract with a 4% increase…5 firetrucks…..3 acquired in 2009 …1 paid for by city/ 2 VFD …the $150,000 non- RFP  purchased 1989  102′ ladder truck is sure to be paid for by the city if McIntee/Silverstone are re-elected in March….new command car…2 ATV’s…..Fire boat…Skidoo …$2 million dollar “Public Safety building”…$3 million dollar Fire Garage in their future…No oversight from town……all for approximately the same number of VFD members as when they were terminated!)….

“We’re doing community service, we’re going out with Santa Claus. We aren’t running away,” McIntee says. “Yesterday, an individual walked in and gave us a $50,000 check on the spot and said, ‘Now you have all the money you need to fight BSO.’ All of this money is going to be used to drive Ken Jenne and Oliver Parker out of this town. The mayor is part of the evil empire and it’s not going to stand.”

(Was that $50,000 ever checked out?…Booster Club Funds are not disclosed!)…

“Even if the recall fails, Parker’s term runs out in 2008. But the mayor says he’s going to run again despite the new term limits. He argues the new law is retroactive and the city attorney has agreed with him.”

(“Mr. Oliver” is is said wants payback for those that did not back him for his re-election…that would be the “Old Guard”)….

“The townspeople are livid about it, saying he’s a disgrace to democracy. Parker, who admits that his political career is probably doomed, says it’s just the opposite.”

“It’s real simple, if the voters want me out they’ll vote me out,” he says. “That’s what democracy is all about. I may not have any base of support for all I know. Maybe I won’t get any votes next time.”

(Flashback!)

Here’s The Scoop … The November 10, 2009 LBTS Commission Meeting … #1 …Pileup …

November 11, 2009 by Barbara

IF YOU WATCHED IT YOU SAW THE “STRIKING” SIMILARITY …

Dear Readers … The first and last Commission meeting for the month of November was like witnessing a 98 car pileup….Eying the audience in Jarvis Hall was like watching those witnessing one accident after another with no ability to stop it!…

Town Chaplain George Hunsaker spoke of remembering those who served  and asked all to pause for a moment… He spoke of our Forefathers and Foremothers  and to appreciate all they accomplished…

We began with Representative Ellen Bogdanoff coming to speak on the state of our state…and after she spoke of the hurdles we will face with the budget after the stimulus with “bigger holes” needing to be plugged…the fragments we will be left with and “no silver bullet”…The new approach to once again deal with the vetoed condo laws…Commissioner Clottey bent her ear about the insurance “that’s killing a lot of people”… Rep. Bogdanoff answered back about Citizens being “socialized insurance” since we own it as taxpayers and delved into the departure of private insurance companies and the cost that will come if we get hit by a hurricane and Citizens needs to pay… The in his opening salvo of why he’s gotta go in 4 months…the Vice Mayor embarrassed himself, the dais and the town…in what will surely make its way to Tallahassee when he asked about the 250 million…and Rep. Bogdnaoff had to “clarify” it was 2.5 BILLION…The Vice Mayor was out to lunch in asking her “How many millions in a billion”… He wouldn’t let it go as the residents in the audience could barely contain themselves at his ignorance…But as we all know the Vice mayor is missing the embarrassment gene in his DNA and he wouldn’t let it go…going further into the point of no return!… We hear there were some “Twitters” after this one and not just in the room!…

We went into public comments and this writer presented Commissioner Clottey with the unconstitutionality of her item NB H. put on about me. I informed her of John Thompson and his story of the previous commission when they dealt with him…The fact that this fell under Article I Section 9, Paragraph 3 – Bill of Attainder: A legislative act that singles out an individual or group for punishment without trial and an Ex post facto law…when a law is passed after the occurrence of an event or action which retrospectively changes the legal consequences of the event or action…I added that my comments of “shame” and “despicable” for her actions toward Comm. Dodd with her item to “rotate” him off the Hillsboro Inlet were most appropriate … Later on the answer for her actions were even more incomprehensible…In her Commissioner comments…Clottey spoke of her new BFF Mr. Oliver Parker…telling her he wanted the Hillsboro Inlet position…The same Oliver Parker she helped to recall with Comm. Stuart Dodd when Dodd headed the CIC and it was his name on the action!… Clueless…Hmm.. What will Parker’s poker buddies think about this strange duo?… Comm. Clottey was off the wall when she went on to say he asked her and when it comes to a vote she will vote for him!…So what does the CIC- President Bob Roberts and especially the Wardlaws think about that one?… YIKES!… Can we recall Clottey?…

Cristie Furth did her clickety clack  walk to the podium to remind all that the Halloween event was once again THE EVENT in LBTS…and to thank the Vice Mayor for without him…there would have been none…She took swipes at the others (the Vice Mayor followed suit in his Comm. comments)…that others did not want to participate and there would be no joy in the “pumpkin patch” if not for the Mc-Furth-Gang…Hmmm. Perhaps Comm. Clottey didn’t have time to discuss past Halloween events with her new pal Ollie…too much time was spent on the Oriana million and the Hillboro Inlet…The cost according to Ms. Furth $1737.00…This writer has a public records request in f or the breakdown…and reimbursements…

Candidate John Oughten spoke of  234th birthday of the Marines…the ethics code and the money we lost when we paid back the 6.1 million in loans…Later in Comm. comments…Jimmy-“spreadsheet” tried his “glass half full” trick by saying we “saved” 600,000 by paying it off…no mention of the $300,000+ due to poor timing to pay it off by the Town Manager with her pre-penalty clause decision…

Mark Brown was terrific recalling then-Commissioner McIntee and the NBCA Survey sent out in 2006…He told all how irate McIntee was that a survey went out without commission approval!..He told us that McIntee had the nerve to tell Brown to demand the surveys be taken back!…McIntee said there was a question that was “factually incorrect” and Mr. Brown said it was indeed and it was not counted in the 11% return of the 100- sent out…Mr Brown wanted to know now what the Vice mayor was going to do about this 2009 survey that went out with no Commission approval…and a question (33′ townwide maximum height) that was “factually incorrect”…but counted by the Town in the Town’s 3% return?…He called on the Vice Mayor for the Town Manager to reimburse the town…but conceded in the end…that we would see once again the VM’s “double standard!

Candidate Scot Sasser spoke on Resolution 2009-27…..

“After reviewing the back-up documents regarding Resolution 2009-27 regarding the MOU for Solid Waste removal (Waste to Energy) I have a few questions and concerns that I would like to present to the Commission. Since these are detailed questions and may take further review I have hardcopies to give to you. Perhaps you have taken some of them into account already but I thought being thorough would be best.

1. 10 year extension is quite long.
2. If the flow control ordinances are changed LBTS will be responsible for maintaining a minimum based on historical deliveries. How will this be calculated? We have progressively gone down and are currently at 2004 levels.
3. Are the flow control Ordinances referenced include County Ordinances? If so, we may have little to say in regard to changes to the Ordinances. Worse yet, if a large participating community changes their Ordinances that materially effects the current flow are we, then, subject to minimums based on the new proposal?
4. Section 3 refers to utilization of “best efforts” to enforce the Ordinances described in Section 2. Along with the same questions that arise about other participating communities, the County or District adversely affecting our agreement I am concerned that the term “best efforts” may adversely over commit us. Perhaps we could change this to “reasonable best efforts”
5. There is a guarantee increase from 1% – 5% per year with our first increase actually being calculated over a 15 month timeframe not 12 months. (Oct. 2009 to Jan. 1, 2011
6. The service fee can also increase due to the following:
a. Non-Interest income that cannot be passed through to the district
b. Any new capital costs, increase operating and maintenance OR decreased revenues of Wheelabrator due to a change in law. This seems to put us at risk for significant increase in opposition to the limits imposed in Paragraph 6
c. Service fees can increase up to 40% due to a change in law (possibly without our input) without the right to terminate. This is substantially high without being able to terminate AND would indicate that increases in capital costs or operating and maintenance have no 40% “out” clause.
7. There appear to be no provisions that protect us should Wheelabrator become defunct or cannot perform under the obligations of this agreement.
8. What are our options to negotiate this contract or is this a take it or leave it scenario? If so, we should carefully look over the positives and negatives before making any decisions.”

Joan Schott spoke out about the previous commission vote to purchase holiday banners and said the money should go to the troops or the homeless…She spoke of lack of handicapped accessibility to get into Jarvis Hall under cover from the elements…and of bus stops still not covered…

Ken Johnson a VFD member came forward with what could be the new VFD slogan if you follow his theme “GET OFF YOUR REAR AND JOIN THE VFD!”…… He was angry at those who get negative about the VFD because of “Jerry and Jim”…He said the VFD is more than “Jerry and Jim”…and “I got off my butt” and joined the VFD…and people should stop “criticizing me.”… Can you imagine if BSO police officers came and spoke like this at the podium… Would their Dep Chief give them praise? No Way! (Dep .Chief /VM McIntee did!)…Look Mr. Johnson you said it yourself, you chose to volunteer…but your membership also chose to not honor its By-laws when you made Mcintee Dep. Chief!… Your members chose  to sit by as your fellow member threatened your Battalion Chief!… Your membership chose to look the other way when the Dep. Chief broke the rules for answering a suicide call and offered no aid as a first responder!… So while many say the problem is not the VFD…it’s the leadership…This writer says…not so fast…it is the volunteer members that decide that leadership…change that…follow your own rules….and the “chastising” should dissipate!…

Priscilla Rysavy came again to ask for some help and to not allow the 2 year extension for Garden and Shore Court…

George Crossman spoke of A1A and traveling in the dawn…concern about bicycles running “2 abreast” and the danger …wanting single file..Comm. Clottey held up the meeting to get the BSO Police Chief in to answer Mr. ” Grossman” (Comm. Clottey does have a problem with names…although she can’t touch the VM in that dept.) … ending with “there’s really nothing we can do”…Last meeting BSO was praised by the TM for how quickly they responded to the bike problem with the alert board placed on Commercial… Clottey vs BSO…nothing new!…

Eric Schott went over the Town manger’s evaluation…he added up the marks and called attention to her “deficiencies”…He hoped she would take it to heart and improve…

Candidate Edmund Malkoon called attention to the politics that marred the Halloween event…the banners and the bull horn… saying he would have had a “candidate” table as Comm. Silverstone did…but he followed the rules put forth by the offenders themselves…Mr Malkoon said it was this type of behavior that causes “polarization” in out town…and it was “deliberate…He added there was no “Welcome to Lauderdale- By- The- Sea ” sign in the mix!…

Spiro Marchelos spoke of the terrorist attack at Fort Hood and how we need to have protection in this town by professional people …He spoke of transparency and read the mission statement for the Town Manager…He spoke of the fraud and slander seen from the dais over the last year…

Bill Vitelli spoke of the Hillsbotro Inlet…how the commission “couldn’t wait to get it away from Parker” …Little did he know at this point in the meeting that Comm. Clottey had a plan to give it back to him!… Mr. Vitelli said now they were going after Dodd  and to give it to a resident would end up costing the taxpayers…wait until the election…He spoke of the commission ignoring Paul Novak and how the 33′ would effect the tourism in town..saying the commission gave Mr Novak no respect “you’re going to hurt the town.”

Pompano Resident Danny Halpert returned despite protestations of his presence at the podium at the prior meeting in Oct….He said we had problems in out town…no reserves…infrastructure  and without naming it Bert J. Harris …He touched on his return saying previously a comm. said LBTS is “praised” from all over Florida, and “you should be able to take a little criticism from your neighbor next door!…

Bob Fleishman came to try and set the record straight again about McIntee and Silverstone getting pensions for being VFD…a benefit… when they claim they have none…later on in Comm. comments Silverstone again tried to deflect that the “benefit” did not come from the town…Hmmm sort of like Dodd’ “benefit ” of medical insurance coming from Hillsboro Inlet?…How about McIntee’s “benefit” coming from having a commander car…and (we hear ) a VFD credit card?…

Renee’ O’Neal …who is Renee’ many asked…she is a Silver Shores longtime resident…on the CIC Board …who came and did quite a “Ode to Jerry and Jimmy” who if you are to believe her ….single-handedly saved this town… all on their lonesome…and oh, yeah…provided to her $20 annual beach parking!…

Louis Marchelos came right afterward…”I have to maintain my composure. I have a tear in my eye.”…(tongue in cheek!)… He went on … “At the last Commission meeting one of our commissioners took his and our time during Commissioners comments to criticize the comments of citizens who speak during public comments. He contrasted his behavior at meetings before his election in 2006 to that of those members of the public who speak now.

What we saw over the past few meetings was the kinder , gentler commissioner, the oh so wronged commissioner finally in touch with his feminine side. Instead of the ruthless political beast we have seen over the last years, we now have a victim.”

………………………………………

Commissioner McIntee ever the “metrosexual”…(NOT)!…Took the “feminine side” like he had just been “outed”…YIKES!… The meeting stopped when the Vice Mayor harped on the Mayor to do something…Jimmy -boy hopped aboard the McIntee manhood bus…and eventually there was a vote to remove Mr Marchelos from the podium…it failed 2-3 (Clottey voted no…and asked Lois to be more respectful!…HUH?)….

……………………………………………

“He said that he was always issue oriented but his adversaries were mean spirited and engaged in personal attacks.
Well, Mr. Commissioner, lets examine your behavior as a commissioner;

1) your discourtesy towards the Mayor constitutes disrespect and political harassment. This lack of decorum is contagious and has spread to the attendees. How can you expect people to remain quiet and respectful when your own outrageous and overbearing conduct towards the Mayor and others with whom you disagree gives the opposite example.

2. your vindictive acts towards those who fail to blindly support you have put the town at risk and once you are out of office and witness are no longer to intimidated to speak there will be a time of justice and recogning.

3. Your threat to sue those who speak in opposition to your undemocratic and secretative acts as a commissioner. Where are the E-Mails. Give up the hard drive. You have destroyed public records .

4) Yes , many of the comments seem directed at you in contrast to other commissioners with whom citizens disagree. There is a reason for this. The other commissioners don’t stifle dissent, they work with it. They don’t have personal hatreds or personal favoritism dictating their official acts and conduct.

Yes, there is an underlying issue in all the adverse comments you provoke. All these citizens are saying NO to your backroom politics and favoritism. They are affirming the openness and evenhandedness of the majority of the other commissioners.

They are saying, Have you no shame! Have you no soul! They are fighting for the soul of this Town!”

Rosa the Tomato Lady… was throwin’ out tomatoes this night boy..she turned toward the right side…and went after the “Mc-attackers”…chiding the candidates for reading from “a sheet” at the podium, saying why didn’t they come speak like her (Roseann…Rosannadanna)…She said she was tired of this…But not too tired to again ask for the decrease in her hardship parking permit fee…wink-wink!…

Bob Karley came to say as a VFD member…he was sorry the north was ever annexed in…they caused the police dept. demise and the VFd…the unions came because of them…they strongarmed…and divided our town…how about “saving our town”…”I got off my rear”…and he “is tired of having people spit in my face”…Anybody else concerned about the VFD membership PR?… OUCH!…

Yann Brandt spoke of being a resident in this town for a long time, the negativity that starts from these meetings…He spoke of Scott Gooding’s departure, the atmosphere that came out of the Town Manager’s actions…and his requests for e-mails from the Vice Mayor on Scott Gooding and having any prior knowledge…He said the Vice Mayor was untruthful…and continued to be so with other specific  e-mail requests along with the Town…He spoke of how he spent his morning,…giving sworn testimony to the Fl. State Atty…. He said the State Atty. spoke of VM McIntee coming in for his request from Comm. Dodd!… No one could believe it!… The Vice Mayor who deleted 3 1/2 years of e-mails had the audacity to go multiple times to the same State Atty. who we now know as fully aware of McIntee’s deletions!… Comm Dodd took it from there when he spoke at his comments…withdrawing his e-mails from McIntee , after hearing Mr. Brandt….(he was waiting for McIntee to pay the labor costs)… He said he would wait for the Stat Atty. to request them with a court order…Hmmm… McIntee’s should come first!… McIntee was full of vitriol in attacking Mr Brandt by making “claims” of conversations he had with the State Atty 4-5 times!… McIntee said he would return to the State Atty… This should be good!… Looks like McIntee is missing more than the embarrassment gene…he missing a few screws as well!… more on this to come…

Candidate Chris Vincent was the last speaker he addressed the MPSC meeting the prior night…

“Christopher Vincent – Corsiar Avenue – Lauderdale By The Sea

Good evening Commissioners, Madame Mayor.

I attended last nights Master Plan workshop. No decisions were made and for once that is good news. A date has been set for December 7th at 5:30 pm to have a roundtable discussion regarding the $980,000 budgeted for beautification of El Mar.

The Master planning committee has spent quite sometime along with the students from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale putting forth ideas and suggestions for the use of these funds.

Unfortunately they were not given the accurate information regarding the area the funds were to be spent. They were told the area to focus on was El Mar Drive from Commercial Blvd, south to Palm Avenue. However we learned last night from the Town Attorney that the funds were to be spent within the hospitality district which extends from Pine Avenue to Palm Avenue (not to include the circle downtown).

I ask why? Why did the Town Manager not know that prior to giving the Planning committee and the students direction? The town Attorney had no difficulty clairifying this, she was able to find all the accurate information within documents she requested from the Town Managers office. Again why?

I am glad there will be a roundtable to really figure out what is best for the future of this town.

I sensed pressure from certain commissioners last night to go ahead and spend the money without really looking at the issues we are facing in that area in the future.

I want to see that those funds are not spent for some half hearted effort of digging up medians and sidewalks to only have to re-do them again in a couple of years due to infrastructure changes.

I don’t think you spend a million dollars this instant on something that may not benefit the town in the long run. You owe the residents of this town more than that. You owe us the process. Part of that is knowing ALL the facts before spending the money. The money is not going anywhere. What is the rush all of a sudden.

All is not lost on the work the Master Plan committee or the students have done. There are great ideas and plenty of valuable research that will be helpful moving forward now that all the facts are out in the open.

It would be irresponsible of this commission to attempt to vote to spend those funds without going back to the drawing board and evaluating the area north of Commercial Blvd.

It is common sense to do that, it is accountability to the residents and it is the right thing to do.”

Public Comments over…we took a 10 minute break…

Here’s The Scoop … LBTS Oct. 13, 2009 Agenda …. VM McIntee Throws Comm. Clottey An Assist … On Senior Center Invitation To Bid …

October 9, 2009 by Barbara

MAKING THE BIG BUCKS?….

Oct. 13, 2009 Regular commission Meeting

15. OLD BUSINESS

e. Discussion and/or action regarding Request for Bid (Invitation to Bid) (Vice Mayor McIntee)

Dear Readers … previous posts addressed the unfortunate situation LBTS finds itself in with the Invitation To Bid on the Senior Center…which is now to be combined with the Recreation program….if the Town Manager has her way… It was done without Comm. Clottey putting it on a regular Commission meeting for discussion and/or action… The Director of the Senior Center was just told that the Commission wanted to go out for bid…and after 9 years he had no clue if he still had a job……The “Gang” is trying to justify their actions now with the McIntee inclusion of Comm. Clottey’s “verbatim” workshop statement at the July 8, 2009 Special Meeting…during Resolution 2009-19…in the backup for his agenda item…(So who found it for him staff?…or the BTSTimes Truth Deflector?)….

JULY 28, 2009 5 pm Special Meeting (Fire/Millage)….

Comm. Clottey – After making her $20,000 Chamber of Commerce statement…when she said if the Chamber received $20,000 from the County (for the Welcome Center) it should come off their budget… said the following..

At 01:12:10 on the video (link below) “…I also believe that, as Commissioner Dodd has said many times, that things should go out to bid and I’m very concerned about the amount of money that we’re paying for the Senior Citizen Center. I think that should be put out to bid. We don’t have to deal with Good Will. We have a contract with a gentleman that people who attend happen to like him, but when I worked it out on an hourly basis, he gets paid an awful lot of money. Those are the important things I have to say. Thank You.”…

This was a hearing…and again, this should have been put on the next agenda and discussed… Comm. Clottey  should have gone to the Senior Center before taking any further action…Town Manager Colon should not have done another BSO style misrepresentation in stating “the Commission” wanted this bid…while deviously asking for and using Armilio’s own job description in the bid package to replace him… Vice Mayor McIntee should NOT have gone into the Senior Center  this week and told Armilio that he [ Armilio] would NOT be going anywhere and he  [ Armilio] could tell people he  [ McIntee] said so and should NOT that the Town had to do this bid when they did NOT have to!…..

Nothing like an “assist” from the Vice Mayor…to make Commissioner Clottey look even more clueless……with friends like him…….

more to come…

Here’s The Scoop …. HELPING IN HIS “RECOVERY” ….. DE- E-MAILS ….

September 10, 2009 by Barbara

“And in closing again, come and look at my e-mails. You can have them. I called AOL. Any way I can get em I, believe me, I want you to have them because there aren’t any”…. (Vice Mayor McIntee…9/9/09…)

Dear Readers….At the 9/9/09 Commission meeting Vice Mayor McIntee made the following statements…” I don’t do e-mails./Everybody that knows me knows that I have stayed away from e-mails since long before I became a commissioner. If I do ten or twenty e-mails a year it’s a big big number. I just don’t do e-mails./I know there’s only about a handful.  I just don’t do e-mails, I don’t know how to do e-mails. I don’t know how to do any of the sending and the other stuff. I just don’t do it./I want you to have them because there aren’t any and the people that know me know I don’t do e-mails. So I’m loving this folks”

Below are just the e-mails sent from “[email protected]” to this writer…from Sept. 7, 2007- April 8, 2008…. they are from a time when then- Commissioner McIntee and I were clearly no longer seeing eye- to- eye…(sausage series cat.)….prior e-mails (2006-2007) are on another hard drive saved from my previous computer…and if memory serves in those “kool-aid days…the exchanges was quite regular… Also not included below …my e-mails to [email protected]…the many, many  e-mails sent from others that included Commissioner McIntee in the listing… quite a pile….Why put them on…He clearly needs help….and it shows once again….there is truth…there are facts…and then there is Vice Mayor McIntee’s Commissioner Comments…(see scoops post below)…

HE WRITES E-MAILS!….HE SENDS E-MAILS !…. 27 E-MAILS…FROM AOL….HE KNOWS WHAT TO DO!….

Barbara, In writing I will reinterate, I will support 100 per cent ANYONE the CIC decides to support for election. I am sad that this turmoil was so out of control. It has hurt EVERYONE it is time to cease and desist. We all have the same goals we support different candidates but that is all null and void when the CIC makes their decision. Then we all support the selected candidates. I can be no more specific then putting it in writing for all to read. THE ONLY EXCEPTION TO THE ABOVE IS THAT I GAVE STUART MY WORD MONTHS AGO WHEN HE CAME OUT, HE WOULD HAVE MY SUPPORT TO THE END.

He lives in my community and has that right to ask for this to give him a chance to explain why he wants them. You are micro manageing again Barbara and it is ruffling feathers thingks were going great this kind of E mail opens up pandoras box and causes trouble.

To All,

It is time to put up the flag of truce. This should be a time of joy and happiness. Might I suggest we all pull back in our shells a bit, let the new Commissioners get their feet wet and give support, in fact 100 per cent support.

There are a couple items that must be done fast. First we have to cover two upcoming town events. The sunrise ceremony and the Easter Egg hunt. The OG thinks we will forget about this and then we will look like schmucks. My suggestion is that we have a meeting Feb 19 at the Beach Club, we turn the meeting into a hot dog and hamburg celebration for all our CIC people and they BYO. Nothing fancy just a quick, that a boy, party. At this meeting we can ask the CIC to jump on board the Easter egg event with the VFD and we can show the whole town we are out there for our town and we are fund people. The sunrise ceremony the same thing, but I believe the VFD will cover that but will need help another great event for the CIC to jump on to create good will and begin the healing process.

So guys lets move forward and let us start on 19th with our new image. This is the longest E mail I have ever written. PS I have to get to town hall request permits etc. so time is very important to get this done. Comm.jJerry McIntee
