Insomnia Cure and Buckets of Manure

Well, neighbors, if you expected the new Parks & Recreation Commission to morph into a dynamic, action-oriented body of public servants, ready to take on all challenges, you're going to be very disappointed.

Last night, in their monthly meeting, the five members of the commission decided to perpetuate mediocrity by re-electing Realtor Kurt Galitski as Chairman and Mike Brumbaugh as Vice Chair. Galitski, whose
management style seems to be "winging it", demonstrated that he really hasn't learned much about how things are supposed to work up there during his past tour.


Granted, listening to tree removal requests can be tedious, but that's part of the job. And the new guys, Kim Pederson (who was there before many moons ago) and Jeff Mathews, Gary Monahan's campaign guy and contributor didn't, show us much. So, for you insomniacs around town, I guarantee you a quick and deep sleep if you tune into Channel 24 during the Parks & Recreation Commission meetings in the future.... zzzzzzzzz



Over at the CM Press, The Mouth From Mesa North delivered to his readers yet another steaming pile as he demonstrates both his bias and his ineptitude when he attempts to blame all our fiscal woes on immigrants - and does so very
badly. In his entry #621 he attempts to embed fourteen links to articles supporting his racist rant. The problem is, only a couple of his links work! Even if you take the time to copy and paste them into your browser window most of them don't work.


This poor, pathetic man just couldn't wait to get his vile rant into the ether, so rushed it and ended up with yet another entry full of lies, misinformation and unfounded allegations. Perhaps he should seek help from one of his kids when posting on his blog - they're probably much more tech-savvy. Actually, perhaps he shoul
d just seek help, period.

What is funny is that list he posted is the same list we suspect either he or one of his minions posts regularly on the OCR comment section. Of course they are posted with one of numerous aliases.

While I enjoy your rants and critism of my mangement style, I promise you they are not ones of winging it. I would love to hear something constructive from you about the PRC. While we are all appointed by city council, maybe your complaint should be with them. I would enjoy meeting with you for a cup of coffee and some good conversation. I am open to your suggestions of how I and the commission can do a better job in your opinion.

Chairman Kurt,

I know it's early in the tenure of this particular iteration of the Parks and Recreation Commission and I acknowledge that some of the stuff you must deal with is pretty mundane. After only one meeting it's too much to expect that a "personality" of a commission is formed yet.

That being said, this is the beginning of your second tour as Chairman and, quite honestly, you seem unprepared. By now you should know your way around the agenda and procedures and should be leading the discussions. That's what a chairman is supposed to do.

I have positive things to say about any group who volunteers for such assignments. I know it takes a ton of work to do those jobs right. In the case of the PRC, it's probably less demanding than the Planning Commission, but requires homework, nonetheless. I'm grateful to all of you who step up for these assignments. That gratitude, however, doesn't make you immune from criticism.

I doubt a cup of coffee is going to resolve anything. I'm just one guy who writes the occasional comment...
