Keynoter/Reporter Circling the Drain?

I saw this story in the Keynoter/Reporter misinformation rag.  Standard Keys skulduggery – newsworthy but not all that surprising.  Hell, our government officials do worse on a regular basis and nobody gives a damn. Anyway, here was the most interesting … Continue reading

Shady Bob’s Public Records Game

Update2:  That little Brian Bradley fellow got back to me..  Turns out the county doesn’t have the audited financials from SUFA and SHARK.  That’s about what I expected.  Fortunately, I found other information sources, which tend to support the idea … Continue reading

Keys Media Hellscape

The Blue Paper was the only news source in the Keys that did any sort of investigative reporting.  Its future is uncertain at this point, but hopefully it will live on in some form.  The Citizens of the Keys need … Continue reading

Too Crooked to Fail

Shake up at the Citizen

Bwahahahahaa. The Keynoter/Reporter garbage-mess of a newspaper published a story about what’s happening at the Key West Citizen – another garbage-mess of a newspaper. Interesting.  Very interesting.  Of course, I went the extra mile and turned up a bit more … Continue reading

Update3:  Goodhue’s article is back.  Maybe its temporary disappearance was just a glitch? Update2:  Hmmm…when I went to check back on the Reporter/Keynoter story all I found was a dead link.  I had a feeling the piece might disappear and/or … Continue reading

Creeps Aplenty – More Ethics Violations

Loads more ethics violations for the county commissioners.  Looks like “Grinder-Pump-George” isn’t the only sleaze, or even the worst.  Outstanding work by Rick Boettger at the Blue Paper. There’s a great song by Lyle Lovett, “Creeps Like Me”.  It runs … Continue reading

Dissecting the Citizen’s Editorial

The Citizen served up an extremely hypocritical lecture urging the community “to stand up and hold our elected officials responsible for the financial harm they are inflicting on our community“.  Really?  How interesting. There are two major points to be made … Continue reading

Catching Up With the Keys

I’ve been on a whirlwind lately.  Early summer is a busy, busy time of year.  Lots of projects, visitors, work – everything.  Haven’t had too much time to blog or keep up on Keys stuff.  But I did have a … Continue reading
