"nonpartisan" for real, or as in the TCC "nonpartisan"? For example, are theRead More&qu ot;speakers" going to be Nellie, Katz and Coulter?
Gus Stratton April 24, 2014 at 09:00 AM
Give it a rest!!! Please!!! Seems that some here with fictitious names themselves are in essenceRead More&qu ot;Pots calling the Kettle Black", with no worthy contribution other than to carry on a juvenile name calling campaign of slander. What could be a viable and dynamic interactive community forum has deteriorated to this and is discouraging legitimate discussion and conversation. Is there an adult monitor or moderator in the room?
Hingle Mc'Cringleberry April 24, 2014 at 09:08 AM
Wrong again Gus. I have no problem with anyone posting with any name they want. The problem is that Read MoreJoe regularly attacks folks for doing so but as most people know he does it himself on a regular basis. That would be the guy who is calling the kettle black.
Nard Glimrod April 24, 2014 at 04:48 PM
@Gus: Well, I don't care about fake names, but some others do, including Joe. Let's do this, since Read Moreyou're apparently using a real name, please ask Joe S. some questions that many here DO care about: 1) Which non-partisan group is sponsoring the "Tiverton Candidate School", and 2) who will be the speaker(s) at this event? These questions are legitimate, they aren't an attack, they aren't name calling, they aren't slander, and they ARE of interest to the entire community. If you do ask them of Joe, you can certainly hope for a viable, dynamic, and interactive response. Unfortunately, I predict what you hear will be akin to a hat full of crickets.

Jim L. Considering the things going on in Newport, between the State and Hi Li, it will be a longRead Moreti me before this State will catch up to CT an MA on Gambling. To me that is probably a good thing. I see no benefit in all this Casino clamoring as some great savior for the State. More like a death knell.

Iagree 100% John With rail hopefully coming let it go elsewhere if it does then maybe folks andRead Morebusi ness from the north will look this way to expandnd if we clean the s up tate

There is a bid to buy Newport Grand pending a yes vote on table games. Seems the people in NP. have Read Morevoted no on every expansion. I wonder will it pass this time since business has dropped over the years and the half million the city gets is going away.
getreal April 24, 2014 at 10:22 AM
Would a dump Joe or we go blog or post with all those who he offends be a possible move ?
Just Another Taxpayer April 24, 2014 at 11:25 AM

No...you guys are right. I was thinking about it all day.

Anyone who might stop and read this WELcome please let me /us know your feeling please be awareRead Moretea Part shill posts under many different names and at times admits so Also notice that he and joe have highjacked this posting, for what end i do not know at least joe kinda stayed on the subject but all Tea party shill was tell an out right untruth, to put it politely
Tea Party Shill April 18, 2014 at 04:53 PM
Jim, you are the biggest perpetrator of making stuff up and posting it as fact. Just askRead More"Ric hard". What EXACTLY is an "untruth" Jim and what are my "other" names? Lots of talk, but little substance from you. You worshiped the TCC's leaders (when you weren't denying it existed), did you disapprove of their handling of the Old Ranger School sale? If so, I never heard a peep out of you.
Joe Sousa April 18, 2014 at 06:10 PM
Richard uses many names but all the posts are the same babble.
Renee Cwiek April 19, 2014 at 09:31 AM
I don't need to be "neutral" I'm not a moderator. If I were a moderator, my feelingsRead Moreand opinions would be considerably different. So get over it.
Danielle Masterson (Editor) April 19, 2014 at 10:10 AM
Good morning, everyone! I haven't had a chance to read through all of this yet, but I have received Read Morea few emails that gave me a rundown. :) Bottom line: If anyone is planning a Town Meeting article, that article is up for discussion and criticism. If someone runs a public blog and public news show, that person is conceivably a public figure and should expect some criticism. Can that criticism be more gentle and less attacky? Sure. Should it be? I think at this point on this board, yes, let's keep our criticism on the more civil end of things because we've seen that this board gets out of hand *very quickly.*
Renee Cwiek April 19, 2014 at 01:11 PM
I agree and find it kind of funny how quick they all jump on it.

Joe, you are at it again. I did the research and the Executive minutes have not been releasedRead Moreaccor ding to Law. I suggest that people call the Town Clerk and Council President to get going on this. It is important for the Town people to know what is going on. If we don't stay on top we will never find out.

Are you saying Joe lied again? I'm shocked!
Renee Cwiek April 17, 2014 at 02:11 PM

Tea Party Shill April 17, 2014 at 03:02 PM
No, but you did mention your fake family and friends.

OldTownie April 14, 2014 at 09:43 PM
Hingle, He is a joke. He doesn't want anyone bringing up his criminal past, or reminding him ofRead Moresom e of his own comments (following school buses, saving millions, etc.). To be blunt, Joe really doesn't matter, that's why he is so angry. Even the Town Council slapped him down.
Danielle Masterson (Editor) April 15, 2014 at 09:13 AM
Sigh. This makes me most sad of all. A reader and active commenter walking away...

If you want a green garden you have to feed it. Get those overalls out and go to town. LawnRead Moreclipping , leaves, even small twigs, put them in a pile and add a little ash.

Jim, You mean like Joe never owning anything he has done? How many times did he deny having aRead Morecrimi nal record? He was lying! Now he attacks the fire department with no proof. See where that has gone? He wants robots! Then he follows the school buses...a convicted violent criminal was following CHILDREN's school buses...it's &quot;going to save millions&quot; according to Joe. And you have no problem with it...right Jim? Just say it.
Brain Mederble April 12, 2014 at 06:39 PM
Jim says, "like i said you want to say it but not own it."? Sounds a little likeRead More&quot;th e Letter&quot; situation, no? Why was that OK, but OldTownie's not?
