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

November 21, 2009 by Barbara

GET THE SHOVEL …

Dear Readers … This writer has been out and about all day…..and the consensus is this… What year is this?… Can we phone this next election in?… The Mc-Furth “Gang” gave away the playbook in their latest edition for their 2010 campaign!…

They are running the 2006/2008 campaigns!….They are running against the “ghosts” of candidates past!….They are running on north vs south!…They are running on “Galt Ocean Mile”…and no VFD!…. The are running on empty!…. They haven’t got a turkey leg to stand on!…

The Furths, McIntees, Clottey and Silverstone are so off in their collective analysis contained in this  VFD/CIC funded newspaper that they have become a laughingstock to the many who are watching their most deserved descent…They have no one to blame but themselves…

Where is the paper?…Trouble again with distribution?… It did not make it to the condos, still… and downtown…we hear it few and far between… Funny, how much this Mc-Furth publication……with its disjointed, dismal  distribution…sums up the group in charge!…

Earlier in the day…Commissioner Silverstone and VFD at the Surf and Yacht Club….pre-party set-up?… Hmmm…VFD neutral?…

A quick walk-by of the CIC-“it’s a fundraiser”…that quickly backtracked and became the CIC- “it’s a dinner dance by the ocean”……..showed a lack of response…with the “usual suspects” and mostly VFD?…Looks like another mandatory requirement from the Deputy Chief?… Remember guys…the new campaign rules that you voted on kicked in …No donations from the members….If  the comparison in fundraisers is any indication….there will be a new commission coming on the dais!… Yeah, Baby!…

Here’s The Scoop … Say Hello To September…. SIESTA’S OVER! …..

September 2, 2009 by Barbara

FALL FOLLIES!………

We hear the VFD new $150,000 “102” ft. Mc-Special 1989 ladder truck had a major malfunction when the hydraulics broke down nearly causing VFD members in the “bucket” to meet an untimely demise!…The problem requires a New York certified specialist to be flown in to fix it!… No worryin’ about the charges though …… Round trip…1st class all the way!…

We hear the Deputy Chief previously told trainees not to wear their safety belts…they fully complied…. they did NOT have on at the time of the incident!…Now about that VFD medal for trainer of the year award?…. Which pin was that?….

We hear the only ATVs seen recently on the beach belongs to the BSO! …. Flip- Flops were nowhere to be found!…

We hear Peanuts is back in town….and may be in for a big surprise…. Pssst, Peanuts….better start thinking independently!….And we don’t mean being called Larry!…

We hear Jimmy-boy Silverstone is running for re-election… citing he has “unfinished business to take care of”… “Ahhh”, “Ummm” ….”Udderly” “Pecifically” “Ree-dik- ohhhh -lisssss”!… No Sally Field acceptance speeches for you, Commissioner!….

We hear Cristie Furth is running for Mayor against Mayor Minnet!….Surprise Peanuts!…This is the CIC “Psychedelic Dream Team”? Yeah Baby!….Picture Perfect Possible Platform ……beachfront epiphanies at sunrise instead of round table meetings!….. No ties required!….

We hear the Futures is out on Friday 9/4…..and the Mc-Furth BY-Polar-Times is out on Friday 9/11….You may read into that whatever you like!….. Mc-Truth Detective’s BYE-BYE-lines guarenteeeed!…..

We hear The Town’s Fire Marshall was terminated this week!…. And to think…Administration never bothered to introduced him to the Town!…Bad Manners, Madam  Manager!….May we suggest a parting gift in March….”Miss Manners” Special Edition…Signed…Sealed and Delivered!…Hard Copy of course!…PRICELESS!…

We hear the Commissioners are getting new chairs!….Unencumbered year-end funds?…. Too much leaning back to read during public comments?….In need of the super duper reinforced model? ….Me- thinks they should have waited until March… when the new majority members will make better choices!…. RFPs to be be “read aloud!”….

We love the smell of napalm in the fall!… Smells like VICTORY in March!….
