BALDRIGE TAUGHT GELI!
ALBATWITCH & HINKLE’S!
Some days you have to have some fun and good news in between the gloom and doom. And the guy behind the Columbia Spy is serving it up! Who knew the Albatwitch liked apples? (Click here for a fun story and fantastic pictures!)
And do you see the “Hinkle’s” sign behind the Albatwitch hunter in the above photo? Yes, the Columbia Spy has good news about that as well. It will be purchased and remain as a restaurant! Wonderful news (click here). Will they serve the Albatwitch apples?
* The first is pursuing NewsLanc’s right to obtain the files pertaining to the $9 million CRIZ award for the Marriott Hotel expansion. The State agreed we were entitled to the information and told the City to hand over the files. The City is using taxpayer money to appeal the state’s decision through the court system and thus conceal the actions of Mayor Richard Gray and his administration. NewsLanc will absorb the costs, from $10,000 to $20,000, to pursue our rights and the rights of the citizenry to know what has been going on behind the scenes.

Robert is keeping his promise and he has hired a Philadelphia Law Firm to represent him in the city’s appeal. The city is paying the Lancaster firm of Zimmerman, Pfannebecker, Nuffort & Albert, LLP trying to keep these documents from the public (see below). I will follow this and also put in a Right to Know request for how much the city is paying their law firm trying to keep these documents a secret from the public.
Where is your coverage, LNP? Oh, that’s right – you are half of the Penn Square Partners and you are trying to keep these documents from the public as well! Unbelievable!
MAKING THE STATEMENT
You can watch last night’s SDoL School Board meeting, where in the first two minutes they address the Bill Jimenez issue (click here). He has resigned. From the board:
Last Thursday, just five days ago, the school district received a report of an alleged, inappropriate verbal statement by Dr. Jimenez to a staff member that had reportedly occurred near the start of this school year.
They went on to say that his replacement job offer was withdrawn by the board yesterday and while “Dr. Jimenez denies having made the alleged statement,” he has resigned.
You can also read LNP “reporter” Alex Geli’s account (pictured left) where he actually found some people who liked and respected Jimenez – click here for, “McCaskey High School Principal Bill Jimenez, recently placed on paid leave, resigns.”
Note: I will be squishing Geli like an ant later today!
