Mr. Biles is a hero, I would not discredit him in any way! However, everyone seems to be missing the point, no one really cares that Thompson was fired, its the way he was fired. Why didn't the council use proper procedure? that is the question, I think we all agree that Thompson needed to go!
marcosandflea, aka town clown, John Putnam. What do you have against Lisa Douglas?
Foster, you and Putnam need social etiquette rehab. You are both socially retarded.
The Tucker naming was on the agenda while the dismissal of Thompson was not...big difference Foster.
Cities in Florida cannot go banckrupt (it's a state law)!
On the contrary Fossil, I am a very happy individual who leads a modest life. I enjoy my surroundings, the sunshine and have a lot of friends. Fossil, one only need read your blogs to know who the real unhappy person is! Every one of your blogs is a complaint or attack about something or someone. It is very apparent you are a miserable curmudgeon.
Dave Rush a.k.a. Fossil, you have WAY TOO much time on your hands. Enjoy yourself and get a life already. You prove that money can't buy happiness. What a bitter man!!
Dave, do you really believe everything you read in the paper? What are you complaining about anyway, with all of your money you should just buy the water company and stop adding fuel to the vocal minority’s fire. Thankfully, the vocal minority has been reduced to a very very small group of just a few along with John Worum Putnam and about ten of his aliases.
Foster, why all the interest in Marco politics? I will trust the council and city attorney on proper procedure at the meeting before I would trust Ed Foster. What Foster doesn't know is that when he turned in the asbestos Tucker saved his rear from prosecution and an investigation. Tucker was an unusual man, even though he despised Foster and at times treated him with disdain, he still saved him from himself.
Don't know what the infamous jw wrote about Rob but it must have been pretty bad for him to respond on the blogs. Apparently jw is only a big man in his own head otherwise he would do the right thing if he lied or misinformed. After all, he keeps asking for honesty and transparency from everyone else - naw, but then again that just seems to fit his persona. Lies and insults are ok if you're John Putnam. It's more than obvious he has a sick hatred for Rob but to not face him is cowardly. To use the excuse I just don't like him is why I don't talk to him. Now that's humorous! John I suggest you take your own advice and "Read your stuff before you push the button!"
P.S. Even I am offended by the mere mention of Hilters name.
One more poor soul Putnam supported who DIDN'T get elected. If you're ever running for office stay clear of Putnam; his support is the kiss of death.
Yes ed34145, it is the same John Putnam that wrote a LTE asking for civility. As per usual it's acceptable for THEM to attack a "helpless" long standing public servant in as vile and unacceptable fashion as THEY see fit. But it's not ok for anyone to disagree or question THEM. Is that the THEY you speak of dc5799 (actually Robert Glaub) he ousted himself in a previous blog.
ed34145, you must now have realized that there's a double standard for all CaveDwellers to act as juvenile as they wish but unless you're in their group you have to treat them special. No one took away his freedom of speech but definitely should have! Watch the video - Glaub was allowed his 4 minutes and more to express himself to show what a thoughtless twerp he really is. Popoff pleaded with him to take the high road but he was incapable of doing the right thing and asked to be seated when his time was up. He should have been thrown out! If anything Popoff was too nice to this dimwit!
John, you are so good at deferring away from the issue at hand. Glaub was out of order, "PERIOD." No excuses, no defending him, he deserved to be tossed out of the meeting.
He was led away like a dog because he acted like one!!
Good idea fortl, are you going to do it for $6k a year? Something tells me you're just a complainer sitting behind your computer and you don't do much else. Put your money where your mouth is and run for office.
I have three pieces of sage advice for you Sayre:
#1 Get a new group of friends
#2 Throw the Thesaurus away
#3 Run for City Council because you seem to have all the answers
This says it all with respect to Dr. Sanchez.
Dr. Sanchez is an intellegent man but he is in his 40's so he must have been the youngest Marine in the history of the US if he served in Viet Nam. Once again John, you spread misinformation...you have no credibility on Marco Island.
what a shame
John Putnams internal dialog:
I didn’t write a threatening letter to Chairwoman Terri D.
Terri didn’t call the police one me!
I didn’t send her any apology!
Oh, by the way, here is proof that I did send Terri and inappropriate email and an apology…have a nice day!
You're right Sayre...I can't tell the difference between you and Putnam; you're both fools!
Marco Island had three village idiots and got rid of one of them, Davies, unfortunately Uhler & Putnam still remain. Ed my old friend, I can't call you an idiot, after all you have a self-proclaimed IQ of 177.
While I may be a "curmudgeonly hateful old goat," I am an honest, factual and caring old goat. Putnam is still just an idiot and you are a worthless old has been. I may be the only one on Marco that misses you; you are/were priceless entertainment!
I am convinced that Putnam is a nice guy when he's taking his medications. I am also convinced that he talks to himself via several alias' on these blogs.
27 Year, just ignore Putnam, the village idiot; he is a small squeaky vocal minority with sanity issues.
Jess, council voted against a new bridge.
(This comment was removed by the site staff.)
Too much mis-information to even address. John, you really need to stop embarrassing yourself!
You should get a life Putnam. You're a part-time nobody on Marco Island. You are irrelevant and laughable.
For the record, I loath Obama and his Marxist agenda. He is effectively ignoring the constitution and may drive this country to a point of no return. That being said, my point is that Putnam is a joke; he makes assumptions about our local government based on no facts, merely opinion (his own skewed opinion) and he is now doing it with the White House. Again, I don't like Obama; he, along with Frank, Pelosi, Boxer, et al are destroying our great country. The sooner they all leave office the better. John, if you're going to throw stones at elected officials, at least have your facts straight so you can substantiate your arguments!!
Montel...not Monty! I know Monte and he is a Democrat, a very left wing liberal. I am a Conservative who appreciates facts, not fiction!
Mr. Putnam...or better yet, the village idiot! Where do you come off always being the know-it-all? You arrogant, ignorant, little loser. People like you are nothing more than chronic, obsessive complainers who will never be satified. Once again you have proven to know only a small portion of the facts and created the rest in your very small little mind. Please, just go away...
"Kiester testified that he regularly deleted e-mails from his personal inbox.
Chuck, get your story right; one second you say you unintentionally deleted the emails and the next second, you claim you intentionally deleted the emails. Pick a lie and stick to it Chuck!
Everyone is aware of the conversation you had with Butch Neylon asking him how to delete the emails. Remember Chuck, he said the only way was to change out the hard drive...did you get some help from Professor Sanchez??
You were found guilty by District Judge Mike Carr who "told the court that Chuck Kiester had "made a mockery of the law!"
I personally would have loved to read all of the dialog in those emails between you, Godfrey Davies, Butch Neylon, Roger Hall. Crazy Putnam and the other conniving, anti-city cabal. While all the other councilors had to produce their emails and personal information you escaped that by INTENTIONALLY deleting your emails.
SHAME ON YOU KIESTER.
You will not win in the election. I promise!!
Our council can increase my taxes 10 times if it makes you leave the island John! Please start taking your meds again; you're really crazy!
MaryAnn, basically all you do is complain about everything you think is wrong based on half truths and innuendos. If you know so much run for council and make the changes you feel are necessary but stop being such a chronic complainer. Remember, you and your ilk lost the last election by a landslide, when is enough enough? Most of the losers had enough common sense to leave the island or gave up their worthless battles but you're like a misguided and misled energizer bunny. Have enough class to stop your incessant complaining; you lost...stop reminding us with your ignorance!
Why in the world would the Eagle quote the town jester and part-time resident John Putnam...now that is laugable!
John, have you been taking your meds?
The Glaubs and the Enmans seem to have all the answers to everything that happens in city hall. Their arrogance is only preceeded by their ignorance. These two couples are about as sharp as a bowling ball!
Everything Columbo writes is based on emotion and his own personal agenda which is why everything he attempts and everyone he supports "FAILS!"
I apologize August; you are right but I would never talk to Foster.
Hey islandman4now, a.k.a Ed Foster. If anyone knows about needless lawsuits it's you!
The officer was in a major altercation with three individuals who tried to do great bodily harm to himself and others. He finally got them handcuffed with the assistance of bystanders and tried to piecefully transport them to the jail. They acted like animals, probably on PCP and deserved what they got!! At least Carr, Recker and Popoff have the guts to stick up for him.
But what would you know about guts Ed? You lost all the battles you started, wasted a lot of innocent taxpayers money and ran and threw your attorney Gold and faithful pawn Enman under the bus on your way off the Island.
Foster, now you're carrying conversations with yourself between two or three blog alias'. Has it dawned on you at all that this may not be sane? Have you thought for a moment how arrogant you must be to actually write a guest commentary to a paper in a city which you do not live and are not a resident about a meeting you did not aattend?? Really...I agree with CW; you need professional help.
Don't bother ej; you're trying to use common sense and logic with people incapable of objectivity. These are the same people who screamed the loudest during the election. They are the losers and this is just one more of their attempts to try and make our government look bad, this time Recker is their champion! This is all about Recker trying to fire Thompson and hire Souza as city manager. Recker is supporting the agenda of the same people who voted against him.
Fossil, that's precisely what the council does, they represent the people!
So let me get this right...is there or is there not a tooth fairy.
You mean there's no tooth fairy??
How much longer is the Eagle going to print McMullans garbage?
To the Editor: Do some research on this character before you give this conman anymore credibility.
You are right on Wayne!!!!
There will always be a very loud vocal minority on Marco Island that will mislead, misinform and misquote at every opportunity and McMullan is their leader. The last election proved once and for all that they are only the minority. I say ignore them; the more we talk to them, the more embrazened they become!
What's your point van?? We do live in a representative republic, it is not a democracy. We elect our governmental representatives and they place votes as they see fit. Perhaps you just don't like who the MAJORITY voted into office.
Fossil, here is a little government lesson for you:
WE ARE NOT A DEMOCRACY! We are a Representative Republic.
Fossil, you and McMullan are part of a small minority that have been screaming to be part of the political process. Now that you have an opportunity to voice your opinion and be heard in a formal setting you guys all protest and resign. What this tells the majority is that you never really wanted to be involved in positive way to begin with; you are just trying to be obstructionists. Someone who really cared and had convictions about an issue would be part of the solution!
You further prove your ignorance by your foolish actions, erroneous statements and lack of understanding of how your own country’s government actually works.
RIGHT ON OldMarcoMan!!!!!!!
What amazes me is that the paper actually removes public information about Bill McMullan. There was absolutely NO abusive language or insulting remarks, only facts about McMullans checkered past. Why would the Eagle staff remove this...McMullan must have pull with the press!
To find out more about Mr. McMullan google his name as follows, Bill McMullan Kissimmee, or just visit the link below:
