-9:00 a.m. RJK to tour beach area with Vice Mayor Jerry McIntee and look at new Beach Safety Posts that run along the entire beach in lbts.  There is a post every 500 ft that has a number on it (to let people know where they are and to notify fire and police in case they had to make a distress call for someone on the beach) and a lifejacket since there are no lifeguards on duty on this particular beach.  He also wants to show him new seadoo rescue vessel, BSO Broward Sheriff’s Office rescue boat, etc.

BC- We hope the Congressman will be sure to ask about the VFD Sea Doo/(newly acquired from BSO ) VFD boat rescue training program..which lacks the proper certified instruction for the VFD members…….and if the voters will be able to decide on lifeguards per referendum in March 2010…

Jon Robertson, B.M., M.S., D.M.A.
Basic Information
Conservatory of Music
“Robertson is a conductor who inspires confidence in a listener – his beat is utterly secure; his feeling for structure, unfailing; his overall manner, no-nonsense elegance.” Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times

Maestro Jon Robertson enjoys a distinguished career as a pianist, conductor and academician. His career as a concert pianist began at age nine with his debut in Town Hall, New York, with the New York Times calling him a pint-sized Paderewski. As a child prodigy and student of the renowned pianist and teacher Ethel Leginska, he continued to concertize throughout the United States, the Caribbean and Europe. Already established as a brilliant concert pianist, he was awarded full scholarship six consecutive years to the Juilliard School, where he earned his B.M., M.S. and D.M.A. degrees in piano performance as a student of Beveridge Webster. Although his degrees were in piano performance, he also studied choral conducting with Abraham Kaplan and orchestral conducting with Richard Pittman of the New England Conservatory of Music.

After completing a master’s degree at the Juilliard School, he was appointed chair of the Department of Music at Oakwood College in Huntsville, Alabama. Among the many accomplishments realized during his tenure, the highlight was the tour of the college choir and Huntsville Symphony to Los Angeles, California, performing Verdi’s Requiem to a rave review by the Los Angeles Times. In 1970, Robertson returned to the Juilliard as a Ford Foundation Scholar to complete his Doctorate of Musical Arts. At the conclusion of his degree, he once again performed with the Oakwood College choir and the American Symphony, performing Verdi’s Requiem at Carnegie Hall to critical acclaim in the New York Times.

BC- Dear Readers…Posted for a Faithful Reader…and the Garden Club…BUT…This writer does believe that a double standard was used with monies being available…after it was put on last minute well after the time for agenda items to be accepted was past…not once, but twice (an additional $100 was added to the Town Manager report for the Garden Club refreshments post program at the 5/12/09 Commission meeting)…for a total cost of $1850.00 ….It looks bad…It looks preferential…which it definitely was for Comm. Clottey…and it really should have been on hold for a community concert series to begin next season after the new budget was approved…….The double standard …the monies not produced for the Chamber for Christmas-By- The-Sea…a much larger event for the town…They also needed the funds last minute due to the Vice Mayor’s self proclaimed VFD “donation” of $5000  for the event was rescinded….leaving the Chamber short and in the end, without the Town adding additional funds…the event was canceled…to the great disappointment of many…

Here’s The Scoop…Aruba Beach Cafe’ Memorial Day Beach Bash 2009….CANCELLED!….

May 4, 2009 by Barbara


Well they did it …the Aruba Beach Cafe’ threw in the the towel and struck the first major blow to the town ..cancelling their annual Beach Bash..

This is the result of the recent actions of the the Gang of 3 and the Town Administration….. ….

What a shame…and what a loss …

Kudos to Aruba  ….for standing up to this strongarming trio…and  their co-hort Adminisrtators…

Hopefully this  drastic action will bring these elected officials to their senses!….

From Aruba Beach Cafe’

‘Due to matters beyond our control, the management of Aruba Beach Café sadly informs all those concerned the annual Memorial Day Beach Bash will not take place outside this year. Because of the increased cost of this one time event and possible issues regarding amount of people, noise ordinances, sea turtles regulations and by the very nature of an outdoor event, it is not possible to adequately plan to be able to adhere to all the rules and other regulations associated with this type of event. Not to mention the amount of hard work and the risk of meeting our cost associated it is not feasible for us to continue for this year.We will have an indoor event which will include the normal Friday night pig roast festivities.
We hope to see you there!’

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

May 3, 2009 by Barbara


We hear that Aruba Beach Cafe may just throw in the towel on their annual Memorial Day Beach Bash!…

Not confirmed yet…but Readers are telling this writer those in charge of the event from Aruba are sick of the new Mc-Gang of 3 and their strongarming…the noise ordinance…the head count of people attending street events…and the idea of imposing a “payola” …to stick it to the businesses downtown…along with saying no events on July 4th…allowing no more 2- day events…and on and on and on…

Not having the annual Memorial Day Beach Bash  would certainly strike the first blow…and put a big dent into the weekend plans of residents and tourists…who will suffer right along with the businesses…WOW!…

Vice Mayor McIntee…BFF “Jimmy Boy”  Silverstone and Comm. “Clueless” Clottey would  be right up there with   “MOB” bagmen if they carry out this “stipend” plan of taking money from the restaurants and bars to put in a “lockbox” for Town events…and imposing on them the need to come and tell “Godfather ” McIntee if business  is good or bad!…Yep,  McIntee on the dais at the 4/29/09 Commission meeting actually told Dave Gadsby if times are good you pay and if times are tough come to me and we’ll work it out…Seems McIntee just outdid the “briber” he says tried to bribe him with $100 a few years back!… Maybe this is how it was done in Buffalo?……

At that same meeting Comm. Silverstone said “the past few days have been Hell”…..Imagine Hell just got hotter if this cancellation pans out and Aruba Beach Cafe’ follows through with no event!….

Readers should be making their Commissioners aware of where they stand on these issues…and telling them to stop the Mob mentality…stop the vendetta…stop the ordinances…the fees and the permits…and do their jobs…representing the will of ALL the people not their own interests and the CIC!…

We see the pavilion is now painted yellow…painting over the siding…many longtime beach residents say painting siding is a no-no… time will tell….

Benches are in…at the pavilion…seating for 12 we hear (have not eyed it myself)…Who chose the seating…we heard it was to come in front of the Commission…another independent decision made by the Town Manager?…YIKES!
