Dennis, Like always, TBT reports the real story. You picked the correct elements that explains why the FBI wanted an investigation. There has to be more.

Article Headline: FBI Declines to Look Into Allegations of School District Bond Fraud from 2009


Comment:
This is by far the most informative of all the three pieces written about this subject. Once again, TBT hones in on what the issues are while the other papers completely gloss over the real issues. Superb reporting.

Article Headline: McClash Warns City on SWFWMD-Issued Land Use Permits


Comment:
Interesting that this is going to a hearing and yet Joe still is complaining. If he has a legitimate issue then the judge will find in his favor, if not, then its over. But, I'm sure the independent judge will probably not understand Joe's brilliant arguments. It is this type of stuff that lost him his seat.

Article Headline: McClash Warns City on SWFWMD-Issued Land Use Permits


Comment:
Why the surprise? Based on the SWFWMD board members only two are even remotely qualified to make "Water Management or Water Quality" decision. I have asked this question before and no one seem to know the answer. I would think that somewhere in Florida the State could come up with qualified resources. The board should consist of Biologists, Water Quality specialists, Scientists, Engineers, Environmentalists, Civil Engineers, and if it is actually in the interests of Florida's future it should be devoid of "Developers" as from what I have seen by the decisions of the MCBOCC Developers have only one goal in mind, the development no matter what the damage that might be done then perhaps we would not plunge headlong into the Abyss of destruction of our only home. Remember "Plan "A" has to work because there is no Plan "B", because there is no Planet "B"".

Article Headline: Sunday Favorites: The Ghosts of Ringling


Comment:
John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art Director of Security, Russell (Russ) Pillifant no longer is employed by the Florida State University system. Ringling security supervisor, Bill Pennington, walked into Mr. Pillifant's office trailer after an event at the museum and reported Mr. Pillifant drunk and passed out along with one of Mr. Pillifant's male FSU event staff members, Claude. They were surrounded by empty bottles of wine. Later, on Sunday January 31, 2010 while working the Forks and Corks event at the museum, FSU employee Robert (Bob) Reyes reported that Mr. Pillifant was directing vehicle traffic at the event with one hand, while drinking from a bottle of beer in his other hand. Mr. Reyes observed that he got the specialty brewed beer bottle from one of the vendors at the event.

Article Headline: Pumphrey Files Amended Lawsuit Against School District


Comment:
Sounds like a justifiable case to me. The blatent disregard for equitable treatment of employees shows that most school board members, especially the "old guard, i.ie. good ole boys" who once again dominate school board "policy" decisions.

Thanks to all, who are spending so much time, effort and money to stand for the environment. So sad, that local and state officials act against the welfare of native plants and wildlife, as well as, human safety.

Article Headline: County Commissioners Adopt Wounded Resolution


Comment:
You want public support to be successful at implementing No Kill in Manatee County. Fire every single person whose name appears in the Manatee Sheriff's Napier's' report. All but one, are still working in Manatee County; employees and a Commissioner. When accountability and transparency are implemented in this county, then, and only then, will we move forward.Many of us believe in
consequences for turning a blind eye from animal abuse and neglect.

Article Headline: Controversial Animal Service Measures Buried on Tuesday's BOCC Agenda


Comment:
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement, FDLE, was looking at the Napier disaster and events related to it. If they do not continue to investigate this incident and all those associated with it they are just as guilty of animal abuse as those involved.

It is time for law enforcement in Manatee County.

Article Headline: Anatomy of a Scandal


Comment:
Absolutely brilliant. Thank you for an article that brings together the pieces of a fragmented puzzle and a district where corruption under the likes of McGonegal, Gqgnon, Horne, Martin and Kinnan flourished solely in the name of Manatee High School Football. That motley crew has cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands. The victims are the taxpayers, children, and current administration. This article is brilliance and read like a novel. Kudos.
