Here’s The Scoop … “Butch” McIntee and The “Son-Dunce” Kid ….

December 17, 2009 by Barbara

IT’S A REAL STAND-OFF…..

Dear Readers … It looks like “Vice Mayor/ Former Dep. Chief Butch” McIntee and his “Son-Dunce” Kid…Commissioner Jimmy-boy Silverstone are “gunnin'” for the LBTS-VFD!…

We hear “Butch” is a sore lose (no surprise there) and he’s been M.I.A.  since his huge loss for his “shot” at being the new VFD Fire Chief!…He ‘s either slinked off with his tail between his legs to lick a few wounds…or he is plotting with his BFF to retaliate against those who gave these two their own chance to re-enact that famous scene in the movie… you all know the one…where Butch tells “Son-Dunce” to jump…he says no..”Son-Dunce”  says he’s can’t swim and Butch tells him “Are you kidding me, the fall will probably kill you!”… We hear “Butch” is ready to resign…and according to the VFD the process requires a letter and a talk with the Chief….then the letter goes into the “inactive” file…Hmmm ….anyone taking bets on this one…….

While trying to climb their way out of this …we are told behind the scenes …the “Son-Dunce-Kid” has taken that final plunge…leaving no doubt that “Jimmy is not a nice guy”…He is “Butch’s” sidekick  through thick and thin… episode after episode…but just like in the movies the sequels never live up to the original…and soon the audience gets tired and moves on ….

The “audience” in town…and in the department feel like they just moved on all right from the old “black and white”of the past 4 years …to HD…color enhanced …with a wide-screen view of possibilities for next 4!..

Rumblings are that their “Gang” is not offering any shelter from this self- imposed storm “Butch” created….and they are actively looking for a new “Gun-slinger” or two or three…. perhaps a new “sidekick”  to lead the way …It’s “Nuts!”… The dwindling CIC…has been “waving of the white flag” at various gatherings..(Too little…too late!)…A look at the CIC site shows…finding someone to take up the Furth cause…

“The CIC meeting will be on Sunday, January 3rd, 2010. By that time we should know the candidates for the March 2010 election, and will be able to decide which candidates deserve the CIC endorsement.” …

Now that sounds desperate…and what is the  Furth “cause” anywhooo?…Whatever “epiphany” Cristie Furth “sees on any given day!……

Waving the white flag as well is the woman who stood alongside the “boys”… Manager Esther Colon….Hmmmm….Today is the Town Staff holiday luncheon and Manager Colon ever the tactless wonder…decided to extend an invitation to one Commissioner long her “S–T list”…at 6 pm last night…but this Commissioner should not be insulted though… for we hear the Mayor…was not invited at all!… Hmmm…and this writer figured the Commissioner was higher on Colon’s “S–T list” than Minnet!…

The question is…will “Butch and Son-Dunce” make a pilgrimage today at lunch to sit down among just what might be the last group in town willing to break bread?…

Whatever happens…if these two best buddies…mount their “brooms” and sweep off into the sunset…after the dust settles…this really will be the “prettiest town in America” once again…No new slogans are required…Thank you very much…
